RE: Eli Higgins
Hi Adam-

You're very welcome!

I've actually never talked to the town officials who would have the records for Riverdale. (It's on the "maybe someday when I have time" list - LOL) I do remember someone telling me that some early records were lost, but I don't know that for a fact. It's pretty common with a cemetery this old, though. And there is a good-sized section in the back that has many unmarked graves. In fact, most of the graves in that section are unmarked. But Carrie (Minot) Higgins is in that section, so it's a good bet Eli might be there, too. Although probably not next to her, as this seems to be a section of all single graves - no family plots.

I had a lot of correspondence at one point with Sherry (Higgins) Solomon (Find A Grave: at one point concerning the Higgins/Minot/Burdick families. I was able to give her quite a bit that I had gleaned from Family Search. If you're not related and/or in touch with her, let me know, and I can send you what I have, when I have a chance to put it all together again. I'm sure I must have copies of the emails.

Good luck!

Sorry Adam, I am doing it again.........

Is the surname "Sowka" her maiden name? I think I might search this name as well as the other spellings.

Just a thought.....

RE: Mary Stanislaw
Wow Adam! I had no idea that you had that information. Now I am really out of suggestions.

I do not want you to publically share that information. If you want to e-mail it to me I promise to keep it private and I will destroy the information after I look for clues. My e-mail address is;

Let me think this over. I will figure something out, I promise. I love a

We will find her. I know how important it is to connect with family.

Sorry for the second message but I just had an idea.
I think I am going to look up her obituary at the library. If I locate one, I will be sure to share it with you privately.

RE: Mary Stanislaw
Hi Adam,

I have noted the several variations of spellings that you sent along with some I created. I will be going back to search the record book within the week. Hopefully, I will find some connection to her with one of these spellings.

A little note for you..........I did not find any records for the surname Stanislaw.

Do not give up hope. I intend to search thoroughly and creatively. I will keep you informed on my progress.

RE: Mary Stanislaw
Hi Adam,

Okay, the game is on........I accept this will keep searching all different spellings.
Do you know if she is resting with other family? Any clues will be accepted.

Hi Adam,
I have searched this name at the Lake County Indiana public cemetery records and could not find Mary Stanislaw listed as being buried at Calumet Park Cemetery. Is there another spelling to the name? Perhaps she is resting at a different cemetery.
I would be willing to re-search for you if you have additional information/suggestions.

I found a stone for the wife of Julian Minot, but could not locate a grave for him. Do you want to create a page for her?
The stone reads:

Addie A. Minot
wife of Julian Minot
1852 1923

This headstone is very worn. I hope this is the correct marker. It appears to be a military style memorial marker. It's very interesting that it is marked Vallie Henry. I couldn't make out the rest of the marker other that some of the date info. I could get the GPS coordinates if you want it.
