Dietz memorials at Lkeside
I am so pleased to transfer management over to you. I always delight when I get a message asking for a transfer. It means that the work I did means something to another person.

All done. If you need any linking done on the memorials I created, I process edits daily :)

RE: Meyer (St. John the Baptist)
I recall that Gladys and Edward were several rows behind the monument for Joseph, Mary & Edwin. They were a couple of rows apart from each other as well (Gladys and Edward).

I didn't photograph as far back as the Chelius stone (I'm doing the entire section), but can tell from the photo uploaded that all these folks are indeed in the same section, but not next to each other. There are no markers to tell you what section you're in so I'm indicating this area is "Back Right" as I upload photo's/create memorials.

I did set up memorials for the Meyers that are directly next to Joseph, Mary & Edwin; they are; Julia, George, Clara, Irene & Maryjane. I'd be happy to upload the photo's asap if you'd like to put in photo requests.

RE: Czosnyka
I have many of them in my family tree on ancestry although they are distantly related through my Paryz side. Chester Czosnyka changed his last name and/or took his wifes last name... sort of confusing.. TY Bob I go to Holy Cross all the time and i think almost everyone in my tree is buried there...but i also focus on very distant family that grew up in Lackawanna...thats why my tree is so

RE: Martin and Smaczniak Graves
Sure - that's awfully nice! I wasn't trying to be pushy or suggest anything like that though. I'm pleased that people do so much to make information available and now that I'm getting into all of this I'd like to add what I can where I can to make information available to others as well. Because I knew where my parents were buried it didn't occur to me to list them on Find-A-Grave. So when the hint for my Dad popped up on Ancestry I was surprised to find so much information already there. But now I'll add photos and other information. Who knows who else may be looking? Thanks again, B

Martin and Smaczniak Graves
Hi BK,

Thomas and Helen Martin are my parents and Edward Martin is my brother. There is quite a bit of information I would like to add to to these records. Do I need to send information, photos, etc. to you or can I do this directly? New to Find-A-Grave so was pleased to find some information already here.

RE: Woodring
I have added a photo for Garry, his name is on the back of his parent's marker. We weren't looking for any others, so don't know if Mark is there.

Fred W. and Elsie Poltz
"Calling me in" is exactly what happened - LOL! June sun is not best for photos but there was "Poltz" reflecting the sun. I will try again at a different time of day and/or later in the summer now that I know where they are. His parents still MIA but next to his cousin who I was really looking for. "Family lot" in Glenwood means the entire cemetery.

RE: Poltz, Glenwood Cemetery
Not yet, but we're trying to get a handle on Glenwood. When we do find them, I'll keep an eye out for others nearby. Last visit, Fred and Anna "called me in" so we'll hope Henry and Fred W. do the same. ; ) At some point, we hope to be able to ask for a location and actually know what that means, so there is hope of finding them.

oops - wrong generation
Fred W., named for his grandfather, was the son of Henry W. and Minnie (unk); Henry emigrated with the family from Grammentin in 1867.

Poltz, Glenwood Cemetery
Looks like you're more interested in Elsie's family but I'm about to add Fred's parents (with link requests.) I have more Poltz information if interested. Not positive Fred was born there, but the family emigrated from Grammentin, Prussia, in 1867.

RE: Pa Neubeck

About George - no more info than the 1920.

About the picture - my guess 1919 but could be a few years earlier, I have other photo on the same day when Uncle Horace got captured. He was not happy about that. Names on back of picture as I gave you by Frances.

Send me your e-mail I you want pictures. Have Ma Pa's photo book.

best wishes

Re; Laurens E Dietz, Memorial# 61358857
Hi BK!
I don't know if you are interested in posting obituaries to the memorials that you have but I search out and transcribe ones I find then send them off to the creator when there is an established memorial... if you prefer I not send them to you just let me know and I will stop. If you wish to copy my transcription (BELOW) and post you may do so. I know the value of an obit... small bits of info can open a door.
Thank you for consider this!
Happy Stone Hunting!

Thanks for adding Uncle Don, hadn't gotten around to it. Transfer isn't necessary. Thanks again.

Hazel's parents
I found and posted the gravestone photo of her parent's stone. They are also buried in Section 6, off of Willow. Look for the signs up on the big trees for the different sections.

Richard Hoth
Richard is buried in Section 6 of Oakwood Cemetery. Sect. 5 and 6 are the more open space halfway down Willow Street. Look for a black upright stone Goff/Rutty, a gray upright stone Dodge, and a gray upright stone Schmidt.
