Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in genealogy since 2001. I have added both family and non family members. Any additions or corrections are greatly appreciated. I have also added people that had both positive and negative contributions to society as well as some that were just caught up in events that they couldn't control. I feel we can learn from their mistakes as well as their accomplishments. Those who cannot remember the past are doomed to repeat it.- George Santayana

I like to do corrections so send me what you have, preferably using the edit tab located on the upper right hand corner of each memorial. I want the memorials to be as complete as possible. Due to time constraints I don't always reply but I will do them within the 30 day period.

Note: As of 2/23/14 I should be all caught up with corrections. Please resubmit any that I may have missed updating the memorial.

John Benedetto 1904-1936
I have added photos of the John Benedetto (spelled Beneditto on the tomb inscription) gravesite, and will add info on his parents / siblings ASAP.
This guy was killed in a gangland style shooting in Chicago in 1936, am I right ?

Big Ern;

Please consider transferring Alberta Withrow's Withrow memorials over to me, as I have a load of Withrow data that I can add to each and everyone of those memorials. My # is 46926691.

Very Sincerely;

Roland R. Wilkinson

PS: Alberta's husband Eugene and my grandfather were cousins.

RE: Joseph Russo
THAT WOULD BE AWESOME. Yes, I need it badly in order to help get him a proper military headstone.

My address is 45 Inwood Drive, Milltown, NJ 08850.

Let let me know how much I owe you.

If you want to scan it and send it to me via email. Let me know.

Thank You

RE: St. Lukes UCC
Your welcome. Hope I did not add too much work for you. I have been taking pictures at St. Luke's for several weeks now. I joined the Trappe Historical Soc. So I am out there once a week. Thanks for doing the edits.
