Bio Photo My name is Loretta and I'm a genealogy addict ;-) I'm a freelance musician in Chicago. The surnames of my four grandparents are Gillespie, Loftice, Dimas and Bernal.
Many of my memorials are not family. I just take extra pics while visiting a cemetery. If they are relatives of yours feel free to ask for a transfer.
If you know a maiden name, relationship connection, correction or addition for any of my memorials please use the edit tab to let me know! Thanks :-)
If I've added a duplicate pic to a memorial of yours and you would like the space for personal photos just let me know and I'll delete mine. No hurt feelings ;-)
If you have a minute please take a look at my blog (linked below), Barking Up The Wrong Tree.

your entry 61284372 is a duplicate of
90957095. I know yours is older, but the 909 has family connections.

Thanks, Kay

HI Loretta, my name is Luis Eloy Ramirez Cabrera and writing from Venezuela. I'm a historian, author, writer and baseball columnist. right now I devote a book entitled "El increible ascenso de los latinos en las grandes ligas". I'm trying to figure coincidentally two enigmas baseball: Charles Pedroes and Vicente Simental.Both would check if the first Cuban (Charles) in the twentieth century to play in MLB and Mexican (Vicente) to play in the history of MLB. Both would unpublished pioneers.was common as there are too many contradictions in the lives of these men as well put it into the Charles Pedroes information. According to the 1880 census, his mother told him as born in Cuba-Havana-Cuba and son of Justo Pedro. Charles himself in the 1900 census says he was born in Chicago on October 26, 1873, but most of the information placed the date as October 26, 1869. In your research, the issue becomes more confusing because you put the date as October 27, 1870 and his birthplace Ciego de Avila. Vicente Simental I played in the MLB as Sandy Nava, just accedi the 1900 census in Baltimore - Md., and appears on line 51 and Sandy Nava but a man of 49 who lived alone, away from... You say you are addicted to the genealogy, with these two cases on Charles and Vincent could do a very special job and reaching the category of myth.I'd give you what I possess Charles Pierre (Pedroes) and Vicente Simental (Sandy Nava) in America and your arm would look for the like? and of course everything would go as mutual research at the American Society for Baseball Research (SABR). I hope your answer luiseloy

She is also very distant related to my husband. We are doing some research on the Brooks family and just trying to connect a lot of dots some just don't seem to fit. My husband is from the Cave Springs area of Claiborne County, Tennessee

Bettie Brooks

I made a mistake on the birth date on the memorial. Birth/death date are the same Oct 11, 1923. Cause of death was premature birth. I have both Bettie's birth record as well as he death record which show Burl Harrison Brooks and Dora Martin Brooks as her parents. If Bettie is related to you, I will be happy to transfer the memorial to you. thanks for pointing out my error. Becky

You have Herman Kirch in Montrose Cemetery, Memorial# 61992373. He was married to Vera Wallack who is not shown. Her parents are also buried in Montrose, Memorial 92786042 and 92786099. Is it possible you have a marker for Vera but did not post it?
