Pat Bruno, Memorial # 84435184
Dear Ruth Ryan: Pat Bruno was an old and dear friend of mine. He built the Mollohan Castle (which a cornerstone he placed inside the castle reads: "Built By King Richard [aka Richie] and Queen Frances of Bruno") and I watched him at times unloading bricks from his old pick up truck so he could add another masonry course to his castle! What a character he was! I would like to kindly request a transfer of his memorial to me. I'll try to contact a daughter of his and also contact several other old friends of his for some goodies to place on his memorial. Joan Meyers is Pat's sister. Kind regards, Bridey Light

RE: Cattanach
It's perfectly ok. I'll do my best to keep up with them until a family member comes along :)

Added by Grddgtr2grvdggr on Jun 26, 2015 9:00 AM

Hi Ruth,
I just noticed that you transferred the Cattanach's to me. I'm not actually related to them. They have a plot near my father in Calvary, which is how I added them. When I add a memorial, I like to research the family as much as possible, which is how I was able to find some family connections. I don't mind managing them. I also don't mind transferring them back.

RE: Greenlawn Cemetery, WLB

Thanks so much for the details about the cemetery. I need to be sure that I won't spend an inordinate amount of time hunting for the markers, because I have about an hour scheduled for this cemetery. Also, along with dangling trees, I'm a little concerned about snakes, woodchucks and other sordid characters I may find in the unmowed areas.

Here's a list of my closest cousins in Greenlawn. How hard to you think it would be for me to find these graves by myself?
Anderson, George 1891-1984
Applegate, Louisa (Woolley=maiden) 1862-1934
Asay, Joseph B 1879-1956
Harvey, Stephen 1842-1879
Harvey, George 1878-1886
Harvey, Stephen Henry 1879-1952
Harvey, Walter Smock 1876-1954
Van Huel, Benjamin 1854-?

I really appreciate your help. Coming from Florida leaves me clueless about what I may find.

Greenlawn Cemetery, WLB

Let me revise my previous message a bit. I just reviewed your Greenlawn site, which was helpful for the directions and a mailing address.

As for the grave locations, is there anyone who can help me with this? Even if I can get some idea (SW corner, for example) of where the graves are, that would be better than nothing. Since I will have a short amount of time at the cemetery, I need to be as prepared as possible.

Hi Ruth:

Can I copy the two photos on his memorial for use in my family tree?

Also, do you know how I can get plot information for others buried in Greenlawn Cemetery in West Long Branch? Other than the USGW Archives list, I don't find any address or contact information for the cemetery. I will be traveling from Florida to Monmouth County to visit my ancestors' graves during July 5-10.

Thanks - Cathy Barbano

Harry Emmons, MT/NJ
Although the article said Harry was buried at Sand Coulee, MT, he did not appear on the county cemetery listing, not too unusual in those early days. Then I began to wonder if he might have been moved at a later date. When I did a search, the NJ Harry Emmons came up. I don't have any further information, not even where he was born.

a bit of confusion

There are two men who are named Charles Van Brunt - one is Charles A. Van Brunt - he is 141047556

the other Charles Van Brunt is 5022773

The information for Charles A. Van Brunt wound up with the other Charles - where you have the picture of Charles with his wife Mary E. (Dennis) Van Brunt is incorrect.

The picture is located at 5022773 - the stone is for Charles A. Van Brunt and his wife Mary E. (Dennis) Van Brunt

and it belongs actually at 141047556

The Charles who is at #5022773 had two wives but neither is named in his obituary.

Thanks for helping me to clear this up.
