Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born and raised in northeastern New Jersey, and now live in the beautiful north Georgia mountains. I am a late bloomer in regard to researching the history of my ancestors (who isn't?), but absolutely love the journey! I have many ancestors in New Jersey and look to add them to my memorials on F.A.G. as often as possible. I also have an extensive family tree on, and learn of new family members all the time. Many of my ancestors are from Germany, Scotland, Ireland & England, and settled along the east coast, mostly in the NJ & NY area. My current research interests include my mother's side of the family, surnames Betz, Sleith, King, McHoldt and Hall. My main goal here is to help others with their ancestral research and have alittle fun along the way, and will not let certain members who have nothing better to do with their time than try to take that away. Please contact me if you would like to use any of my pictures. I am also willing to transfer any of the memorials I have done volunteer photos for or any other memorials I have posted here in north Georgia. Most of them are not related to me, but they should be related to you in someway. In addition, and I am saying this in the nicest possible way, rudeness will be ignored, but extreme rudeness will simply NOT be tolerated!!

Confusing Question
You left a message asking me if I was an administrator on this site. What site? Did you have a question?

RE: Edith (Wahl) Essex Find A Grave Memorial# 73724243
Hi, You're very welcome, glad I was able to help. I do not have any info on who Edith's biological parents were. I do have a transcribed copy of the 1885 NJ. State Census for her. She was living with Anthony and Louisa in New Providence, her age was listed as between 5-20 years old. The only other people living in the household were Joseph and Mary Wahl. Since both of them were aged "over 60" I would think Joseph is Anthony's father, but I am not sure Mary is his mother, but perhaps a 2nd or 3rd wife of Joseph.
Since Edith was living with Anthony and Louisa in 1885 I would think her birth parents may have died sometime between her birth and 1885.
I do have copies of the 1850, 1870, and 1880 census' for Anthony, as well as a copy of his marriage to Louisa in 1872.
I would be happy to email this info if you would like to have it. Al

Edith (Wahl) Essex Find A Grave Memorial# 73724243
Hi, My name is Al Stitt, I am writing in reference to the above posting. Recently I was looking into the family of a friend whose 92 year old mother is related to Edith (Wahl) Essex and her Husband John Edmund Essex. I noticed there was no reference as to where they were buried. In doing some research I found that John died 1/23/1907 and was buried on 1/26/1907. Edith was buried 6/23/1907. They are buried in the same grave in The Evergreens Cemetery in Brooklyn NY.
Also known as: Cemetery of the Evergreens, Evergreens Cemetery. I received this info by calling the cemetery this morning. Please feel free to update their dates of death and burial location to your posting if you wish.
Contact info shown below for your convienience.
Thank you helping me find them.
Sincerely, Al Stitt

I see a photo you posted of William and Ella (Hildebrant) Hoffman and I'm new to this site so not sure how you come in contact with the photo. I'm their great grand son.

RE: Crowley Family
Hi Pam,

Well, it is possible there is a relationship somewhere along the family line, although those names don't directly sound familiar. My Crowley family was a large family. Lots of siblings/ancestors. Appreciate what you find. Thanks.

You can find my family tree as the Pohl family tree. I am on Ancestry. my screen name on ancestry is JPohl256.

Crowley Family
Hi Jerseygirl,

I am researching the Crowley Family from NJ. Specifically, William Henry Crowley Born 5 Nov 1902 D 1929 - Not sure of specific date. You provided a posting here for Henry Crowley with Birth and death dates that are the same. Could this be William Henry Crowley and how are you related to the Crowley family from NJ?

RE: Ralph and Eleanor (King) Peterson
I tried to find the marker to fill the photo request you have for their daughter Patricia Freeman, but she was not found in the parent's plot or vicinity. Do you know if she has her own plot located elsewhere within the cemetery?

You posted a photo of her on her findagrave memorial #27043315. I'm curious where you got it and if you're related. I've been looking for her a long time as she somehow connects to my Merchant/ Hopkins.
