Are you related to Mary Elnora Polk Hawkins?
|Debra Sanden||RE: Roland Dezurik memorial|
Yes- I am related, my info has you born Colorado. Sorry about your wife Jean passing away so young. Leon's mom Frances--I have her born September 1883 but there is still much confusion there and lack of information like is her middle name same as her mom Elisabeth Louise Spigall, Frances married John-- May 3, 1905--not able to find death stuff on her--her brother Frank was my Great grandfather, his son Lester Elray is my dad's father--my dad is Lester Gorden. I "Google-ed" Roland and Marguerite Dezurik and their son Bradley's obituary came up, lots of information there. Gladly send what I have to you I am stuck and need help to go backwards I know that John Yatckoske's dad was a Frank just do not know if he came to America too. And the spelling of our last name originally is Jackowski. Thanks for the note back. Deb

Thank You-- to you or whom ever put in the "next to Marguerite b. 1918". Through that I was finally able to find and add into my family tree his wife's name Marguerite A. Winter, his middle name Frances and his kids names-Bradley George DeZurik born January 7, 1947 died December 12, 2012, Linda and Chad. And more just because of that one little note. Thank you

Thanks for the note. Next time you talk with the office you can let them know that Findagrave is bringing them business - a nameplate and installation.
Thanks for your help in this mystery.
|Jim Davis||RE: Jay and Trudy Maxwell|
Believe it or not - all the photos are taken from the ground with a cell phone. Sometimes though, the marker is a bit tarnished like Trudy's is and I can't get a clearer photo. I'm glad you like the photos! Jim
|Jim Davis||the Maxwells|
Paul - Hello, the photos have been posted -I hope you like them, it's difficult getting clear photos when the people are on the highest tier. FYI - you might remove "crypt 43" from Trudy and replace it with crypt 7376, similarly with Julian, remove "crypt 55" and leave crypt 7397 (the cemetery didn't know what 43 and 55 referred to).
take care, Jim
|Jim Davis||Jay Maxwell|
Hi Paul - I did locate Julian "Jay" Maxwell at Hollywood Forever Cemetery. The office used the date of death you gave me and found him across the hallway from Trudy. As I imagined, he had a paper marker on his crypt which had almost totally faded - you could just read Jul - (regarding Long Beach, I don't know, I did check the Long Beach cemeteries on Findagrave but he didn't come up). I will post photos of both Trudy and Julian's crypts within the next few days. Hope this finds you well. Jim
|Missy Roberts||RE: Robinson and Minnie Smith|
You're quite welcome. They are very near to my grandparents. It's a beautiful mausoleum.
|Jim Davis||RE: Trudy and Julian Maxwell|
Hi Paul- I've been in touch with James Seidelman who told me that in 2002 he walked around the cemetery and wrote down all the graves/crypts he saw. At that time he didn't have a digital camera and so he didn't take photos. He said he must have seen a marker with Julian's name on it and his notes said it was on the wall opposite Trudy's crypt. He said it's possible that he mixed up crypt numbers - I'm wondering if he might have seen a paper marker with Julian's name on a crypt that has since fallen off or that perhaps it was on Trudy's crypt. Sadly the cemetery went through a very bad time of mismanagement by the previous owner - it's possible that Julian's marker was never placed on his crypt or added to Trudy's marker. I'm returning on Friday for more double checking and I'll give the office Julian's death date. I'll let you know what I find out. take care, Jim
|Jim Davis||Trudy and Julian Maxwell|
Hello, I've located Trudy Maxwell's crypt but I'm have difficulty with Julian's crypt. The cemetery has no record of him but asked if I could provide a death date as the records are filed by death year. I asked them if Trudy and Julian could be interred together but they couldn't find any evidence of that. Do you know the death date for Julian? Jim
