Bio Photo I have been working on my family genealogy since 1996 and at that time decided to include the extended families. And do I have extended family!! I now have over 38,000 people in my tree. I have published a book on my mother's Wolf family. I love going to cemeteries and looking at all the old tombstones.
Any and all corrections and additions are welcome.

RE: William McBrien
Yes, I just did the edits to connect her to her parents and put in her birth date.

RE: William McBrien
After I sent you this note, I decided to try to find out who Mary McBrien was. I tried a few searches on Ancestry, but nothing came up for her. I finally looked up her memorial and it gave a death date. Using that information, Ancestry came up with a death record and yes, she is another McBrien sister. Even though her parents names came up in the record, the record never came up in searches for Alice or Benjamin. So I wonder if there are more. Would not have found Mary without him posting the picture.

I will try to check out the information you sent me. I see the picture of the graves on his memorial, but I have no idea if they are family or not. Right now it does not make sense. If I can find a burial date that may help. There are birth and death records for him, so I will see if there is anything about a twin.

RE: William McBrien
William and Mary are interred in the same grave location #2 - the cemetery records do not reveal what relationship they were - like brother and sister or otherwise. William and Mary's burial
are unmarked - no grave marker. All I have is the cemetery's records that documents the burial for that plot - Section 50 Lot 526.

Rev. Michael A. McBrien
Hi Mary Lou,
I have found an obituary for Michael A. McBrien, memorial #34329119. Do you want me to type it into the bio through the edit? Or do you not want it in the memorial at all? Please let me know and I will honor your wishes. I can also send you a copy, if you send me your email.

Mr. Arms' memorial says he was preceded in death by his daughter, Nadine Jester, so it appears that he did adopt her. Thanks for the information. I've updated her memorial.

Thomas McBrien
Hi Mary Lou,
I am doing some research for the Fields of Honor-Database. They are a group in the Netherlands that is trying to find the stories about the American soldiers buried there during World War II. They have a website.

Thomas McBrien is the younger brother of Rev. Fr. Michael McBrien. I was wondering if you have any knowledge of this family? They are looking for a living relative that could give them some information about Thomas. I have found 2 obituaries for two other brothers of Michael, but not any of the other siblings. I will continue to look, but was hoping you could help.

If you have information and want to contact them, here is who I have been e-mailing.

Fields of Honor-Database
Astrid van Erp

Yours, Beth
