Harry was married to Irene Arbaugh. Was wondering if you know anything about the family.
Thank you for your service.

RE: Louis Witker question
Hi Ken,
Sorry for slow follow-up. I'm sure it was a typo on the birth year when I sent it to you. I've been adding tons in section 24. I will reissue the edit to show 1911 birth year for you. Thank you and sorry! Mary

RE: Schwartz/Hoffman memorial
No problem! I cross-referenced all of the family with both sides since it is the same stone.

RE: Francis McGinty
No, actually I'm in NYC!

Frank was my great-grandfather's brother. I couldn't find him anywhere, although I knew he must have been buried in Western PA. But just the other day, I found the death certificate for Uncle Frank, and it listed All Saints as his resting spot.

No sign of his widow, though. Weird. I have no idea what became of herů. Maybe she remarried. Maybe she's still alive, and 133 years old. :)

Yes, she married Gus Bender and they had 3 kids. All of my info on the family (friends of mine in Edwardsville), is on my Krejci Family Tree on Please send me your email if you'd like an invitation to the tree as a guest. Best wishes, Peg Simons

Theodore Kerkemeyer
Thank you so much for telling me that he and his 2nd wife are in Saint Marys! The death record only said Pierce City, so I just guessed...wrong!

About his first wife, here's what I have on my tree (unsourced, so I probably just got it from someone else's tree):

1887 5 Dec Age: 28
Goddard, Sedgwick, Kansas, United States

Thanks again!

John Grisdale
I filled a photo request for John Grisdale's stone in Calvary Cemetery, Mt. Pleasant, Michigan but didn't realize it already had a photo of the stone. I'm not sure why someone made a photo request when it was already there. Anyway, if you want me to delete my photo please let me know and I'd be happy to do so.

118414960 If you find out that this is not the same person Let me know and I will remove the pictures and make new Mem,
If you pull out the picture and blow it up you might be able to get his dates of service in Laurel County.
Also I am trying to get together a story on your person for the local Historical Buiding with your new picture if you are intrested.
I am sure Laurel County would love to see your work on this one.

Mr Brown's date on his Laurel Co Picture is the same as the death year you have for him.
