|Bio and Links|
|64 and researching my family branches, Which include descendants of Alfred Lager of Geneseo. IL and Soren Reppen of Stoughton, WI. Some of Alfred's children married into the Anderson, Bills and Williams families, some of whom are also buried in the Oakwood cemetery at Geneseo. Some of Soren's children married into the Robertson, Nesten and Burull familes.|
My mother's family was from the Philadelphia area. Ancestors are Frederick H Boice and John Murray Robertson. I would like to find living descendants of the Boice's and the Lager's. Both my parents are deceased.

Yes, that was the address I was looking at (from the census). Nope - no T-intersection and cannot see any houses matching up, even if one considers that the house was on a corner. And I know that Victory (the side street) always went thru. Anyplace else that it may have been taken?

Yes, I had checked out that possibility. 224 W. Long St. is gone, but a few of the houses across the street are still there. I looked on googlemaps but they didn't really match. Could you send me the uncropped photo? email@example.com.

Glad I could be of help! I looked at the photo you added for Rose and Alvin, those were very nice. Do you know where the one of Alvin was taken? I am always interested in the background of such local photos, particularly as so many of Akron's historical neighborhoods have been lost. I once compiled a list of defunct streets and was up to almost 200 :(
BTW, you can almost certainly get a transfer of Alvin's memorial into your care, I believe the ones managed by the war graves project always transfer to family upon request.

Bob, you can get Rose's citizenship application (and Morris' also) at this website:
Zseni could easily be Anglicized to Jennie, I think :)
Alvin has a cenotaph on the site here:
Sherbondy Hill used to not be locked, but I went by I think in April and it was. After walking around in there on Memorial Day and seeing those very large and unwieldy stones, I suspect it is a liability issue. Those stones could easily kill a child who might decide to go play in the cemetery. Anyway, I was told by a local photo volunteer that the house to the left of the entrance (on White Ave) has a key to the gate.
I will transfer Rose over to you.

I found a bit more info from her citizenship application. She did state there that she was born in 1888.

I think you are right. The marriage application says she would be 25 years old on Oct. 6, 1918. The census record also indicates a birth of about 1893/4. However, the SSDI lists Oct 6, 1888, which matches the tombstone. Is it possible that she did not want her husband to know that she was much older than he? I know what you mean about the town info. I added the town from the marriage application, but if it is spelled correctly I do not know. That is where I got her maiden name from. I added the parents names also and linked her to her husband. Would you like me to transfer her to you to manage her memorial?
That particular cemetery is kept locked and I managed to get in on Memorial Day and just took random photos. So glad that she was one that I found! :)

He belongs with family. I'm glad you found him.
Welcome to Findagrave as well. You will find it is a gold mine of information. -- Teresa
