Sears family updates
Hi!

Thanks for the updates to the Sears memorials in Beechwood Cemetery, NY. I wanted to check and see if you are related or have a connection with this family in any way? If so, I'd be happy to transfer them to your care… I'm not related at all! Just let me know!

Blessings,
Dana

RE: Anton and Anastasia Rihm
If Anton and Anastasia are part of your family, too, absolutely. Even if they aren't, I'd love to. My great aunt Marie talked to me about them before she died in 2009. She didn't know a lot, but said her mother Margaret (Rihm)Sears was estranged from them. I don't know why. It's kind of a sad story but maybe no different than many other families. Generations later, we have a better family story to tell, and it was Anton and Anastasia coming to America that allow us to tell it. My Great Aunt Marie, their granddaughter, told me about their deaths. I later confirmed it in a New York Times article from 1930. Census records indicate they immigrated from Germany to the United States around 1882. They remained in the Bronx, NY, where Anton had several different jobs as a laborer. Census records indicate at least Anton became a citizen. Still looking for the source that gave me the county he filed for his Naturalization papers. It looks like they were living on Eagle(?) St., Bronx, when the 1930 Census was taken just before their deaths. He was a night watchman for the building there. Looks like a daughter, Rose Rihm Haarman and her daughter were living with them. Would have to check NY Times article again to see if this was the same building where they died. Aunt Marie seemed familiar with at least one or two of her mom's sisters. Not sure if Rose was one of them. Margaret is remembered fondly by her grandchildren as a short, tough little cookie. She married Albert William Sears. Their son William J. Sears was my grandfather. That would make Margaret Sears my great grandmother and Anton and Anastasia my great-great grandparents. Margaret died in 1973, buried Westchester County, NY. More details if you want them. How certain are you of the parents of Anton and Anastasia? I can't read/speak German and I truly appreciate the way you're honoring Anton and Anastasia Rihm. Polly

No. I don't. German stamps will work.

Bee have you thought of writing them a note with a stamped self-addressed envelope?

Good Morning,

At her memorial page you have a note indicating you are looking for her obituary. I have found it and can give it to you. Contact me by my email which is in my bio.

RE: William Kessel
Bee,

You're welcome. As you know I am always glad to be of help.

I recently came upon a book which helped me identify the location of some of the graves. Of course the Kessel grave had no names other than the surname, so I couldn't confirm the location until recently.

I hope you are going well.

Joe
