|E. Middleton||Marguerite Powers - Staten Island|
Here's the info on her:
United States Social Security Death Index
Given Name Marguerite
Birth Date 11 Mar 1897
State New York
Last Place of Residence Richmond, New York
Previous Residence Postal Code 10314
Event Date Oct 1975
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

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
|Kathy Graham||thore melby memorial|
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
|Kathy Graham||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
|Kathy Graham||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.
|Kathy Graham||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.

I have a photo which you may already have but I'm happy to send if you don't. It appears to have been taken at the same location as the pic on the memorial of Thomas showing Olava and adult children. Mine has, I think all/?most of the 1st image but includes extended family, my great-grandfather Erick Melby on the left and his wife Ingeborg on the right behind Olava.
I was so pleased to find this, solidifying in a visual way my distant connection to your family.
Hi Jennifer, I was wondering in you could transfer my grandpa Dolan 54667338 to me along with his parents. Thank you so much for putting them on here. Heidi

|Kathy Graham||arnt and maret connection|
Hi Jennifer-it's been so informative and a pleasure to find that we share the same lineage. I believe that Arnt Engelson and Maret Thoresdatter Engelson are my great-great grandparents. Their son Erick (name changed to Melby) was the father of my grandmother Myrtle Beach. My mother was Anna Elise Sims, the firstborn of five children to Myrtle and her first husband Johannes (John) Sims.
I've been to the Evergreen Cemetery in Menomonie several times, most recently in 2000. At that time I also visited the Lakewood Cemetery in Mineapolis where Erick's sister-in-law Berit Espaugh and her family are interred, as are his daughter Alma Melby and her husband Ingwald Urlie. I'm curious to know about Minda and Joseph Felix's progeny, if there was a son James(Jim).My mother Anna kept in touch with her cousin Jim,in fact he and his wife Helen attended my wedding in Toronto in 1970.
