Bio and Links
Bio Photo I volunteer at Oakwood Cemetery in Niagara Falls and I enjoy putting up memorials for our residents. I will gladly accept ANY transfers for Oakwood folks, too. I will take good care of them.

I have some limited access to St. Mary's and Sacred Hearts Cemeteries, which are adjacent to Oakwood, although most of their records have been destroyed and the cemeteries are in ill repair.

St. Joseph's, Holy Trinity and Gate of Heaven (Lewiston) are not far away and within my travel range for photo requests. I will only take photo requests that already have grave section/area info because these are HUGE cemeteries. Call the cemetery office, tell them you are from far away and ask they provide you with the info so you can send someone else to get the photo. Most places will do one or two requests for FREE. After more than a couple, however, be prepared to pay some sort of fee.

Remember: your family BOUGHT plots there. They work for YOU.

Visit my Virtual Cemetery "Oakwood's River Folks" for folks who have died stunting at The Falls or in The Niagara River and then stop by and say hi to my recently departed best friend, Eilean "Ellie" Lyonhil Donan in the Virtual Cemetery, "Beloved Friends".

RE: Mary Halpin at Oakwood
Thank you for all the time you spent. I will delete her photo request but will leave her in the cemetery because of the newspaper info.
I am sure after all this time no stone remains and I know many of our cemeteries don't seem to have records back that far.
Thanks again

RE: Holly Porter II at Oakwood Cemetery
Scot , your probably right , so i deleted my entry. WOULD REALLY LIKE TO SEE ALL OAKWOOD BURIALS TO PRESENT RECORDED AND PHOTOGRAPHED ONLINE.I have found in my research of family , a dedicated graving community in other states and places to maintain a cemetaries burials .No such luck here in Niagara Falls at all. I have reached out to other people to get these less than famous folks of Niagara the respect they deserve .How can I help accomplish this. Im not interested in Heritage tours or ghost walks . Simply want to connect people to their families.

RE: Joseph Giroux
Oh, ok. I removed his photo request...Sorry, I didn't know it would mess others up & just left it up to remind me that I'd requested it & all...Thanks! & please don't knock yourself out trying to locate his remains. I'm not, as he was my distant great uncle.

Oakwood cemetery
Sorry Scott, from the research done on my husbands family, he does not belong to our Meahl line. It originally was van de Muehlin when the family came from Germany in 1850. Hate it when there is no markers, I am finding it more and more with my side in Australia. Would give them all stones if it was possible. Good luck with your search. Judith Meahl.
