Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love history and exploring my own genealogy as well as helping others discover theirs.

I am currently working on projects for my husband's family . His mother's side has deep roots in the US dating back to the 1600's.
Using FindAGrave I am trying to link all of the family members together so future researchers find it easier to locate their family members It irks me when edits are declined because a woman's maiden name might not appear on her headstone It is difficult enough to locate and trace female family members

My own tree is being worked on by both myself and my sister but having roots in the Poland/Austria/Czech area we come upon brick walls often.

Be sure to check out my Virtual Cemeteries---I have been working hard on grouping families so they are easier to find Leave me a note if you think we may share some lineage. I'd love to compare notes and share what info I have discovered!

St Adalbert Cemetery-August Bialk gravesite
Hi Susan-I loaded a picture of the section where August Bialk is buried. He is an unmarked term grave. A term grave means that when August was buried the grave was essentially leased for 20 years and if at the end of 20 years the grave was not purchased outright it was resold and reused. The original interment would have been deep and any subsequent burial would be above. The Archdiocese no longer uses term graves. I put a caption on the photo to indicate that the grave is unmark and that when the sections were converted from term they were renumbered which means that it is not possible to identify the exact location of August's grave...Mary

couldn't find James, P.S.

I realized that the photo I have of Ida & Jeremiah's stone is already posted.

Seems a bit of strange situation where her spouse's stone does not have his last name of Berryman, though it's listed in the information.

couldn't find James
Hello Susan,
I went to Mountain View in Saugerties NY and tried to find James Tompkins, but was unsuccessful. There are many unreadable stones there. I did find stone for Ida & Jeremiah. It was in good shape. I'll send to your gmail if you would like it.

Albrights at Riverside Cemetery
You're welcome. Thanks for thanking me. I went back and I got William H. and Eliza H's names that I missed on the side of the Albright marker so if you want the photos they are there now.

Hi Susan,
There is no central Bedell marker for the family on the plot.

RE: Eunice Osbourne Culver
Hi Susan. I'm confused. What date are you seeing on the lefthand side of the stone? To me, it pretty clearly reads Jan 3 1842, which matches the date on the memorial. The records I looked at show Lewis's daughter dying on Aug 3. The age is less clear -- I'm not sure if it says 2 or 72. 72 would be correct for Lewis's mother. If the records are accurate, Lewis's daughter was just over 3 years old when she died, so 2 wouldn't fit.

At the same time, it would be odd for a grandmother and grandson to be marked together on a stone like this.

Anyway, I can remove the picture, if you'd like.

St Joseph Cemetry-Balke gravesite
Hi Susan-I filled your request for Joseph Balke. He is buried with his wife, Sophie A (1897-1973) and there is a military stone next to them for an Edward Francis Balke (Jun 1, 1929-May 12, 1978). If you create memorial pages for Sophie and Edward let me know and I'll post pictures to their pages....Mary
