RE: I think we may be related...?
We are related!

My Great-Great Grandmother was Isra Ella VanVaulkenburg, Juvia's half sister through Mary's 2nd husband, John.

my email is

I have some pictures of Ella's family and a couple from another sister, Minnie Bell's family.

My GG Grandmother's family moved from Vancouver to Waterville then onto Garfield in Whitman Co.

Would love to share what I know.

I'm still searching for the family in the 1880 census - but this may have been when they were heading towards the Dole's in Washington from Michigan and thus got skipped??

Looking forward to hearing from you!

George Curtis... Maplewood
I've been trying to locate George for you.
The cemetery lost its records prior to 1986.
However the information I came up with is:
His service was handled by OConnells Funeral Home in Jersey City. Date was April 16, 1970
They will not release any information to me as I am not a relative. (I also think its cause its far back and they dont want to go look) I was told by them they have ALL records since their beginning of business. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Be well...
