RE: Karolina Theresa Marek Adamek updates
Two sources for place of death, actually.

The Header for the obituary tells us the place of death, Yoakum.

The Texas Death Certificate, available at also gives name as Yoakum, DeWitt, Texas with name of care facility defined as Stevens Nursing Home.

Henry F Layton in St. Joseph's Cemetery
I came across your recent memorial for Henry F. Layton in St. Joseph's Cemetery (Lavaca County).

Was wondering if you had any additional information about him? I am friends with one of his descendents & they are curious to learn more about him, but I've not had much luck.

RE: Marie Steffek grave pic
Thanks for the kind words. I noticed the death year on the memorial is 1923 but the monument clearly has 1927. If you zoom in on the picture you will see that. I sent a request to the memorial creator to change the year to 1927.

RE: Harold Kalish burial place
Hi Beau,
It's Forestville Cemetery in Connecticut. That's the only cemetery I have ever recorded Kalish burials from, because Clara Kalish married into my Percival family.
I have a photo of the headstone, but didn't add it to the site because it's not a good shot.
I can't think why the cemetery is not showing on the site and now that you have pointed it out I will try to fix that.
Thanks very much.

RE: Harold R. Kalish burial
Hi Beau
It is probably Forestville but I cannot be sure because there are a lot in West Cemetery Plainville. I usually send an edit when I find that the cemetery isn't listed. Have you tried contacting Ms Percival?

Helen Baros
There are four cemeteries that are run together at Shiner and there has been a lot of confusion and mistakes about who is buried where. I went by "Lavaca County Cemetery Records by Sammy Tise who is considered the expert. He defined the boundaries of each cemetery and in his book, Vol IV, page 129, he lists Helen's husband, Joe Baros as being in Shiner Sons of Herman Cemetery.

When you are out there the boundary between Shiner Sons of Herman Cemetery and the other cemeteries is at least easier to see than say the boundary between the Catholic cemetery and the City cemetery which is nonexistent.

I created a map using Sammy Tise's boundaries but added modern landmarks to help people see the boundaries between the cemeteries. I put the map on Find a Grave as a cemetery picture for each of the four cemeteries. I would say that (going by Sammy Tise and my own many visits to these 4 cemeteries) that Joe and Helen are buried in Shiner Sons of Herman Cemetery.

I have probably given you more background than you wanted but, yes, I believe that Helen is buried in Shiner Sons of Herman Cemetery.

She was married to Keith Denton Williams and they had 2 boys and 2 girls She later married Joseph Wyatt and they had 3 boys.
Hope this answers your question as to why the chidren had different last names.

RE: Dalilor Vinklarek Photo Request
Actually, it is a cement strip running the length of the row. The markers are flat, metal pieces on the cement. There were a quite a few people without markers or plaques.

Dalilor Vinklarek Photo Request
Sorry, there is no headstone or marker for Dalilor in Rookwood, but this is where is would have been.
