This is my great grand uncle who was an inmate at CIH who died there in 1904. I am having a VERY difficult time in tracking his records and all I need to do is have confirmation of who his parents were and that he is buried on the hospital grounds possible grave #3958. I have information on hand that tracks him to his birth in Co. Roscommon, Ireland in 1839. Feeling 99% sure though that it's my Martin.
Anyway...I have a lot of "feelers" out trying to help with his ID. Once I know, I will memorialize him. I am hoping that the NYC Mental Health Office in Albany will relinquish the info after I've sent lineage info to them beginning with me back to Ireland. We'll see. Any suggestions gratefully accepted. Thank you.
|sr/ks||Great to hear from you re: Geyer|
Thank you very much for the additional info on Mary Geyer, as well as for the clean-up you did on my dark photo of the graves of her and her husband. May I ask how on earth you found their marriage and her maiden name? I had really struggled with this and am so pleased you nailed it.

I see you added some things for Fannie Baronofsky. I have been looking forever for this info. Where did you find it?

Thanks so much for the info about Mr. Weaver. I did add it to his memorial. I apologize for taking so long to do so. If you are related to him and wish his memorial transfered to you, please let me know.

You're most welcome! Happy to do it! She was such a young woman and apparently very loved by her family. "Anonymous" left a very loving tribute to her. I'm sure she is missed very much.

Thank you SO very much!! I have taken over her memorials due to incorrect info and have many changes yet to make. I have added the information you have provided and will correct the link.
Thank you! I appreciate your efforts and information for this memorial!

Thanks for the quick response. Three brothers immigrated from Köln, Germany: William, Francis, and Jacob. William's memorial (20366608) has a biography (he worked for his brother's arms company in Chile and Mexico City) and links to his brothers and his wife Elizabeth (her memorial also appears as "De Gress"). I did a search for "De Gress" and there are only THREE "De Gress" in all of Find-a-Grave: William's brother Francis and his wife Virginia in Mexico City, and an infant in San Antonio. I requested photos of the Mexico City graves so we can see how the name is spelled on the marker. For better or worse, Find-a-Grave wants the memorial to spell the surname as it appears on the marker. I will let you know when the grave photos are posted.

You've done a great job with the memorials:) Thanks for linking uncle William to his folks. I just have come across some pics of him (one of which I have uploaded to his memorial). Thanks for your work on Find a Grave!
|John K||Geraldine Cade|
The info you sent on Geraldine Cade is consistent with my family history. She is buried in my family's plot in Skokie and was believed to be my grandfather's housekeeper. Thanks for the input. I have made an entry to update that Find A Grave memorial.

I have added Rev George Washington Nelson's birthplace to his memorial (#101731797).
