|Dennis Dooley||Pokorny question|
Dear Russ C: Found your Find-a-Grave note on the Kubat/Pokorny graves at St. Adalbert Cemetery in Illinois very helpful—also tantalizing. I believe I am a descendant of the John Pokorny you mention there, and I have been trying in vain for several years to connect him and his brother Marie (nee Faushlau] and sister Ella Patterson with the rest of my Pokorny ancestors, who I believe emigrated from Bohemia to Illinois c. 1854. (The censuses, alas, have not revolved the issue.)
Do you have any suggestions as to how I might go about this quest? Or would you be able to help me?
I'm also fascinated by how you go about creating such a Find-a-Grave entry. Could we ever talk?

You're very welcome.
Please note that there is a difference in spelling between Marguerite Lyons and Marguriete Williams, so, this would leave me to assume these are two different people.
|Bonnie||Re: Herbert Caywood|
Thank you for clearing this up for me. As I have no proof either way I will add the information you sent and listing you as the person who gave the information, therefore if anyone wants to check they can contact you. I didn't used to do this and then when someone wanted to know where the information came from I couldn't remember.

What is your proof that he died in Alaska? I only ask because he is listed in the Oregon death index as having died there. Bonnie

|David James Schimka||RE: Memorial Transfer Request|
My great uncle John Schimka and my great aunt, were not able to have children that would survive to adulthood at the time. The condition is correctable today but unfortunately was not well understood back then. Both of their children died before reaching one year of age.
Though technically it does not make me any closer in relationship, my great uncle's wife was the sister of my grandmother - brothers from the Schimka family married sisters from the Nitti family.
All of the brothers and sisters on both sides of the family have passed away. I would appreciate very much if you would transfer the memorial in this case.
|David James Schimka||Memorial Transfer Request|
I would like to request the transfer of memorial number 147084201. The memorial is that of John Schimka, my great uncle and the uncle of my father, Dennis John Schimka.
My Find A Grave Contributor number is 8365579.

I hope this helps pay their electric bill.

I appreciate all the work that you have done.

I am sorry to see the change in Mr. W's marker since I took the photo in 2011. There are a lot of markers at Maple Hill that need help!"
It's criminal and makes me sad. Mt Hope in KCK used to be like this until the City took it over and began cleaning it up.
