Bio and Links
Bio Photo I grew up in Netcong, Stanhope, and Port Morris, N.J. When such a treasure trove of information was around me I could have cared less. After relocating to Florida, roots became important to me and information less easily obtained.

I have researched Erbach, Hilts, Fancher, Niper, Bird, Duda, Stoll

Find A Grave has made a whole new world accessible to me.

I enjoy traveling and have visited Ireland, Hawaii, Alaska, Nassau, Mexico, and many of the continental US States.

Through genealogy work and Find A Grave I have reconnected with relatives and made many new friends. Hopefully I have helped in some small way to preserve family history and a sense of connection with the past for future generations.

Valentine Erbach
Thank you for creating the memorial for Valentine Erbach. I am descended from his sister Elizabeth.
I grew up in Sussex county. The party line number was NE2-0303W. The mail address was
RD1, Box 326A. The schools were Byram Twp, Newton and Sparta High. That was all fifty years ago. When I go back everything has changed almost beyond recognition.
There are still Ehrbach descendants in Wayne Co.

Theresa Arbolino
Gwen, Hi,

I'm Michele Verdi Moss. My mother and Jimbo Arbolino were cousins. Actually Nick, Jim's father and my mom were first cousins. Theresa, Jim's wife, was also my mother's cousin. My grandmother and Theresa's mother were sisters.

My grandfather was Nicholas Arboline NOT with an O. From what I understand when they all came to America, some of the names were changed and that's how they left it.

To answer your question, yes, that is Jim's wife who's grave you are asking about. She died shortly before my mom and dad in 2010.

Keep in touch.
