RE: Mary Ann Horton Thorne
I see I was wrong about that, he hasn't used the information other than my picture. The memorial is all his, but mine (which yes - was created later but at the time I didn't realize he had already done one as it didn't show up in my search) is gone! He has managed to have it removed and I resent that as I'm MUCH closer in relationship than him if,in fact, he's any relation at all!

RE: Mary Ann Horton Thorne
Barbara - I see my memorial for her is gone, only the one established by "Time Angel", and Angel is a gross exageration! I believe the information on that memorial is what I entered, as he didn't have all the children, etc. on it. Somehow, he has managed to have my memorial merged with his and he is shown as creator. I really resent this and fully intend to contact the administrators about it as, to the best of my knowledge, he is NO relation to her or at best, further away in relationship than I am being her 2nd gr-granddaughter. I do appreciate the fact that you brought this to my attention, even if it was inadvertently. What he did was wrong!

Thanks for the correction. I don't believe that was actually my mistake, "Time Angel" originally posted the memorial with that name. I didn't check it out, my bad. Getting my family's memorials transferred to me from him wasn't easy, and he wasn't even related as far as I know.
Thanks again,

That is simply a picture of the cemetery and not of the Horns ...

St Adalbert Cemetery-Behnke gravesites
Hi Barbara-I filled your request for Martha Behnke. She is buried next to her husband, Martin J. Behnke (1888-1969). I did take a picture of his headstone so let me know if you make a memorial page for him and I will post the picture. Also, you may notice that the headstone is about two inches below grade. Normally that wouldn't be a big deal but the area they are in has a lot of mud which collected on the headstones. If you're family, you might want to give the front office at St Adalbert's a call, tell them that you had someone check the gravesites and that the headstones have sunk (Martin's is even deeper than Martha's) and are collecting mud. Ask them if they would remove and reset the stones higher. Normally the cemetery is happy to do this and it comes at no cost...Mary

RE: Martha Stocker?wie of Paul Kunsman
Barbara, I found another Walter Stocker born 1895 in Bangor, closer to Edith Jones age, and then a death certificate of a daughter they had, a Florence S. Stocker b. Feb 1915 and died March 1915. So that mystery is solved. There were about 5 Walter Stocker's in that area. So I know now that it was not the Walter Scott Stocker 1876-1944. Again thanks Carrie K.

Martha Stocker Kunsman
Barbara, Just read through Martha and Paul Kunsman daughter, Pauline A Kunsman Entkos and her mother is listed as Martha Stocker Kunsman. If the information had been wrong in Martha and Pauls Obituary,in 1985 and 1988 it would have been corrected in daughter Paulines by 2008. The fact that it was not then means that Walter S Stocker had fathered Martha who also named one of her son's "Walter" Kunsman. Sorry for the mess. Thanks Carrie K.

RE: Martha Stocker?wie of Paul Kunsman
Dear Barbara, I will take off the correction. And here is why. I know that Martha was positively the daughter of Edith Jones who was born and raised in Bangor, Northampton Co., Pa. It is her sister, Elizabeth Jones Mosteller that my family line runs into. I decided to research Elizabeth Jones siblings and now have them on my family tree on Ancestry. When I got to Edith Jones Hull Johnson in the 1920 census married to Edward Hull, daughter Martha was the oldest child, age 4yrs old, then sister Bertha was only 5 months old so a noticeable gap. So I assumed that Edward Hull was her father. Then when I saw the Walter Stocker listed as Martha's father not only in her obituary but husband Paul Kunsman some doubt came in. I researched Walter S Stocker, who also lived in Bangor, as Edith did. Walter married on 19 November 1900 to Sarah J Steinmetz and they were married till her death in 1931 in Bangor. Walter was 19 yrs older than Edith and it is possible that Walter did have an affair or something not so agreeable with Edith Jones. I can not find Edith and Edward Hull's marriage license online to give a timeline for them. The fact that Martha's obituary, 1985 and Paul's, 1988 have the same father, Walter Stocker listed for Martha or maiden name Stocker bears some weight, I would like to get Martha's birth certificate but have a feeling if Martha was born illegitimate it would have mother Edith Jones name listed as Martha's last name. Thanks Carrie K.

We corrected the memorial for Eugene Thorne with the right cemetery, but we do not have his grave location. The plot is not listed on his death certificate.

Your requests at Valhalla
Hi! I am one of the volunteers trying to fulfill requests at Valhalla. My friend and I have been through this cemetery in its entirety 3-4 times and have not come across Theodora Alger or Eugene Thorne. I am reaching out in the hopes you would please call the cemetery and confirm they have gravestones and get the locations. I would very much like to fulfill these requests for you and am concerned that there are either no gravestones or that they are buried under dirt and grass. Thank you.

If you take a close look at the tombstone photo, I think you'll find that this stone has a picture inscribed on it. It has not been damaged. There may be a name inscribed on the reverse but on this side, the names are inscribed along the bottom.

Question about adding the maiden name Carney to Nora Carney. Is Carney both her maiden and married name? If so I will change it. It will appear Hanora Carney Carney.

RE: Kaub
I only know what is visible in the cemetery lot. I recommend that you check the burial location search function on the home page of the Graceland Cemetery web site at
Also, I think you should contact the cemetery. They can provide a listing of all the Kaubs in Graceland and their burial information. Regards, Bob Lerch

Mt Carmel Cemetery-Eldredge/Bassett gravesites
Hi Barbara-I'll be filling your requests for Mary and Charles Eldredge (note that the monument has a different spelling than you do) and Mary Bassett. Mary is buried with her husband, Richard Bassett and I added the pictures to his memorial page. They are also buried with these people:
Paul A. VanTuyl (1894-1949)
Celia Ann VanTuyl (1859-1947)
Andrew J VanTuyl (1855-1919)(Celia's husband)
If you create memorial pages for the VanTuyl's let me know and I'll post the pictures there too...Mary
