|Bio and Links|
I am a Catholic Priest of the Diocese of Buffalo, New York. Pastor of St. Joseph Parish, Fredonia, New York from 1999 to present (2013). |
I am documenting the places of burial of our Buffalo diocesan priests.
Most of the research for the obituaries of the priests comes from the Catholic papers of Buffalo: the Catholic Union and Times, the Echo, the Union and Echo, and their successor papers. Some information comes from local news articles, parish directories and personal memories. I also thank family members and friends who have sent me additional information and/or have transfered memorials to me. You can send me biographical information with the edit tab. If you have some personal memory of a particular priest, leave a flower with that information.
If the priest has "No Cemetery" and you know of the place of burial, I would appreciate the information. You can also send that information via the edit tab of the Priest.

Thank you so much for documenting the various men who served the Church here in Western New York. It is interesting to read their stories and see their faces as I visit the various churches and cemeteries in the region.
|Thomas Wilkey||RE: Rev. Francis Bauer|
I grew up in Sardinia and was baptized at St Jude's Church which was part of the Missionary Apostolate. Father Bauer was stationed there after his ordination which was the practice then for newly ordained priests. He was a great guy and we communicated for awhile after he moved to Phoenix. He also officiated at my Brother's wedding and I was an altar boy during the time he was there.

Hi Charles, He is now included on my listing for Erie County, New York noted below. I've almost got the entire county completed. Just thought you might like to know. :-)
I am so pleased that someone is doing this. It is outstanding work and everyone who is interested in this subect, as I am are very grateful to you. Every Diocese in the country should take the initiative to do this. Thank You for this valuable work.
Coincidentally I was brought up in Springville and graulated from St. Al's, I left in 1968 to go to college and am now living in Albany since 1979.
I stopped at Mt Calvary some weeks ago to pay my respects at the grave of Fr. Noel Schreck who was an Assistant at St. Al's for many years and who was a great priest. I think is is delplorable that there is no marker for his grave.
He and others like him deserve more than that. You would think the Diocese or the Parish he served could have provided one.
Thanks again Father for your great work on this.
|Bill VanStone||Revs Arnold and Antonucci|
I've put up pics for Rev. Charles Arnold (Section C) and sites/pics for parents Lawrence and Marie Anna, and Rev. Ralph Antonucci (Section G) and parents Pasquale and Dalinda and brother Claude at Mt. Calvary.
Were you ever able to link Rev. Francis Jones at Holy Cross and possible parents Edward and Mary and siblings Sister Mary and William?
|Bill VanStone||Msgr. James Bray|
I've put up pics and/or sites for Msgr. Bray and his parent, Timothy and Mary, in Section 10 at UG&F Cemetery.
While there I walked around the Knights of St. John memorial area, where there are hundreds of names etched, mostly military, including many priests. Some have separate memorials; some are from out of town. Would you be interested in all the priests that I found on the memorial, so you could add to their Bio? Some already have it on your sites - some don't.
|Roanho||RE: St. Mary Cemetery, Niagara Falls|
No I just saw St. Mary/Sacred Heart Cemetery on Portage road in the Find A Grave. I have went to the Gate of Heaven Office a few times for help, but have found them to be very un-helpful. I have a friend buried at Gate of Heaven, I've taken pics of the site, and they still insist she is not buried there. So - I don't go there any-more. I have gone to the office of Oakwood but they say- they have no records either. Just thought I'd mention that I saw the new cemetery listed.

|Bill VanStone||A few more additions|
I've added pics for Rev. James Leddy and Rev. Joseph Jacobs at St. Patrick's cemetery. I could not find a site for Rev. Angelo Leva, also a pastor at St. Joseph's, so I added one. I assume he belongs in your list because all the pastors of St John's were next to one another, so if he's one of the flock, I'll send him your way. I don't have any family info at the moment but there were some stones in the area with no last names which may belong to one of the men.
And I've updated Fr. Badame's parents' location to St. Mark's Cloister at Mt. Olivet.
|Michael Ricci||RE: Rev. Rocco Faiola|
You have done a great service by including all of the deceased religious. Is there someone who is doing the same for the Diocese of Rochester? If thee is, could you direct me to their website. I have relatives who live in and around Fredonia. If either one of us lives long enough, I Stop in to congratulate you in person. Your predessor Fr,. Harold Huber was an assistant at St. Mary Magdalene church in buffalo when my wife and I were married there. Small world!
