Bio and Links
Bio Photo John D. Schalcosky is the fourth generation nephew on his fathers side to Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky, composer of such work as The Nutcracker, 1812 Overture, and Swan Lake. John is currently working towards becoming a classical music and film score composer. It has been over a century since his great-great-great granduncle composed some of the most loved and well-known music in the world. No one connected to this bloodline has been involved in music since At only twenty-six years of age, John has completed an impressive list of classical symphony pieces including a three-movement piano concerto and a three-movement violin concerto. Born in Pittsburgh, PA. John has been studying music since age of seven and showed an incredible talent for composing pieces for the piano. Eighteen years later John has composed pieces for string quartets, guitar, piano and a large number of pieces for symphony orchestras. During his spare time John has also written many pieces created by his love for rock and roll. With over 100 years separating him from Tchaikovsky, it is apparent that history will repeat itself as John joins the ranks of some of the greatest composers of this century.

Thank you for posting the picture of Olivers grave. He is my grandfather. I never have a camera when I visit cemeterys and it was nice to be able to add the picture to my files. God Bless You. Donna Dayton Stutts

Hi John,
I got the picture you requested for James Randolph Lane in L.I.N.C. He is buried with his wife Madeline (11/5/1893-8/12/1952). I have a picture for her but there is no existing memorial. If you create one, let me know and I'll add the picture for you.
Have a good one...

Subject: Burial Records...

Hello there,
A little bit of bad news... The James Hawkins lot is an unmarked grave area. I still took a pic of where they are buried though & I've posted it to findagrave.

The GOOD news is that the cemetery gave me their burial record which shows SIX people buried there...

James R. Hawkins
Sadie Hawkins
Florence Hawkins
And 3 babies - Clarence 1mo, Homer 3mo, & Arthur 4mo
I hope this helps you fill in some of the blanks.... I am going today to the other cemetery to take the photos of David Hawkins..

I also attached the photos to this email.

Have a great week & talk to you soon...
