Hi,
Yes, all Gallaudets are related one way or another. I am related to Earl James Gallaudet. I have to see how I am though. Why do you ask?

RE: Osbert Edwin Williams, Jr. (December 15, 1875 - October 25, 1917)
Dear Richard,

Your interest to create a page on Wikipedia about my late uncle, O. E. Williams, and one of his associates, E. O. Weeks, intrigues me. Are you related to them? Your details that appear on the Wikipedia site are flawed. Have you read my 406 page book about these men? The Scranton news article you reference on Wikipedia about Weeks’ disastrous crash was followed by a corrected account of what occurred during that crash.

When the fall weather arrives I had fully intended to create entries on Wikipedia for each of my late uncle’s associates as well as himself. During this fall I plan to take down my website and the Wikipedia pages will be an enhancement of what I featured on my site about those men.

Would you be so kind to remove and delete the pages you have created on Wikipedia about my late uncle and any of his associates?

While following the career about my late uncle, my goal was to assure that anything about his life MUST be as accurate as possible. Too much today that is published on the web has fictionalized facts.

Please allow me to finish my project about my late uncle and his associates. Afterwards if you have new materials to contribute, do let me know. Or notice that I have made an entry in error, I’m always open to learn what needs correcting, and why. I’m always on the lookout for missing factors about my late uncle’s career.

Most sincerely,

Nancy Mess

I have contributed to Wikipedia in the past. Not on Familysearch to my remembrance. Why do you ask?

RE: Pauline Schneider (c1878-1932) Engelmann
Hi Richard- yes I took photos. The Engelmann plot has a marker that looks newer than 1950 and I was wondering if it had been replaces. My great grandparents Pauline & Henry are buried there and her brother Henry Schneider & wife too. What I found odd was that Henry Schneider's children are buried in the Schneider plot, even though there are still 2 empty graves in the Engelmann plot. Was wondering if you knew why. The photos I took look like the ones who have, but would you like me to email them to you anyway? All the best-

Schneider Family
Hi Richard- I visited the graves of the Schneider family in Fairview Cemetery yesterday and was wondering if you possibly had info about the Engelmann plot that Henry & Catherine Schneider are buried in. Henry's children are buried in the Schneider plot a few rows away.Thanks- Lisa
