Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi all. I've had an interest in family history since I was very young. Following my grandfather's death in 1994, my aunt gave me some of his old records, including a baptismal certificate that was written in Polish. It was then that I began doing some serious research into my Borowski, Schorer, De Lille, and Day family lines. I feel very strongly about remembering and paying tribute to those who have gone before.

Please take a moment to visit my unforgettable mother:

Marie Constance De Lille Burke

My beloved brother:

Richard Michael "Rick" Burke

My grandparents:

Henry De Lille
Elise "Elsie" Day De Lille
John Anthony Borowski
Mildred Mary Schorer Borowski Bowen,

A sincere thank you goes out to all the kind souls who leave flowers and messages on the memorials I've posted here, and also to the many wonderful people who are so willing to voluntarily post photos of my loved ones' headstones. It truly means more than I could ever say.

Cecelia Vittoria
I was wondering if you would transfer management of Cecelia Vittoria #61183308 to me. She is my father's aunt.
Thank you

Thanks for the reply. Please do NOT remove the photo. Copying it and posting it was fine. I was interested in seeing if you were related in some way.

You posted a photo for Mauritz F Johnson who died on WW II D-day in France (Army Air Corp). It looks like the photo I added on I was wondering if you have any relationship to Mauritz Johnson. He is my uncle.

Arnold A. Wildt
Do you have any information on Arnold A. Wildt? I see you added his picture. I am looking for a good picture and information. I am doing research into the plane crash he was in, in order to get a proper memorial marker at the crash site. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Knudson parents?
Found next to Oswald's gravestone were 2 stones that could be his parents. Email me and I'll send them:

RE: John B @ StL Calvary
No worries

It has been pretty wet here, okay we gotten 4 inches so far this month, almost 8 in July. And it has been HOT, personally that is worst.

If you want to just re-request in about a month, with an Info bubble of this will be a new stone. We have a google spread sheet that 4-5 of us share to get the request done more effectively. We are pretty good about doing the sections that have maps (no maps for 5 or 16). If you want to read more, see my page.

We will continue to keep checking once we get the re-request, until we can fulfill.

Hugh Yett @ Cherokee Memorial Park, Lodi, CA
Cherokee Memorial Park implemented a new policy for ME (they know that I am not related to any persons buried at Cherokee)and, they will no longer give me plot location information.

If you would please call Cherokee ( Cherokee Memorial Park: 209-367-3082 ) and get the plot location for me, I will be very happy to get a photo of the headstones for you.

I go to Cherokee every day for my walking exercise!
