You have Oct 1957 for death date. I think these are the correct people for this marker I photographed. Wm. Powers date is the same as yours also. I will add the photos to the memorials. I can't find info on Tho. Francis Powers. Thanks, Earl

Powers in Staten Island, NY
Hi Jennifer, I took a photo of a marker in St. Peters Cem. on Staten Island this morning and think it might be for a few memorials you have created but some of the dates are different. The marker has these names and dates Thomas F. Powers (1895-1956), Marguerite Powers (1897-1975)and William Powers (1893-1982). Your memorial for Thomas Francis Powers is #91696268. If you think it's the same people let me know and I'll add the marker photo to these memorials. Thanks, Earl

Hi Jennifer---I added pics of Olava et al to Erick Melby's memorial instead of Thore's in error. I've since corrected the misapplication so sorry for any

Thomas Melby Memorial
sorry Jennifer--I thought the new pics were attached to the memorial but is it possible they have been removed. I'm new at this and I don't understand how they disappeared

Thomas Melby Memorial
I submitted 2 new pics with some comments. My cousin thought the smaller family group might be Alfred and his wife and daughters but was not certain.

RE: Thomas Melby's memorial
I don't have a scanner but will have access to one this week for two pics, having found a second image from same day/background. Not right away but soon I can send also pics of Thomas' brother Erick Melby and his wife Ingeborg Estenstad. As you may know Erick and Ingeborg had 3 children Alma, Oscar and Myrtle (my Grandmother). My Mother Anna was raised from 8-16 years of age by Erick and Ingeborg in Menomonie along with 2 first cousins Gerald and Elwood Urlie. Their Mother was Alma, who died in 1911 when Gerald was only a few months old.

I do recall my Mom mentioning perhaps her Aunt Olga, (Thomas' daughter) and for sure she was close to Mindy Melby Felix's son Jim Felix. Jim and his wife Helen came to Toronto from Chicago to attend my wedding in 1970.

Of interest, if you google 'Erick Melby Menomonie' a page from Polk's Gazzeteer 1903 comes up listing 'Mrs. Erick Melby--milliner' and underneath Thomas Melby is noted too!

I've only recently started this unravelling process and love it.
