Robert Martin Feist. His wife, my mother will be atop him. We will be directly to their left of them. To the right will be unoccupied, unless we have children/etc. who may want this remaining grave(s). Father's family is located in Moravian Cemetery located in New Dorp, Staten Island.

RE: Jason Long
I have made this request several times but evidently they never made it to you. Sorry if I came off badly. Jason is my son and I would greatly appreciate if you could transfer his memorial to me. Yesterday was the 20th anniversary of his death.

RE: Family tree cont.
Errr, in my first reply regarding the sibs of GGF Emil I left out Leo. You know that but just wanted to confirm. I have no info about him anyway.

RE: Family tree cont.
OK, back again. So the 9 children of your GGF Emil were Elizabeth, married to Rudolph, Emil, married to Eliz Martin, Otto, your GF, Conrad, married to Eliz Sparks, Marguerite, married to Racey, Karl, died age 6, Daniel, no info, Madeline, no info, and Edward, no info.

Going back to your original problem, I have absolutely nothing about any antecedents for either Otto or Susana.

On your second message I have nothing to help on sorting out the Emma and Karl question as I have no idea who they are. Clearly the same names are used over and over through the generations, especially when one died young. There was a Karl and an Emma who were children of your GGGF, then another Karl who was the son of your GGF. Where THIS Karl and Emma fit in I have no clue.

To keep this string from overflowing perhaps print out the messages after reading them then delete them from here.
