Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born and raised in northeastern New Jersey, and now live in the beautiful north Georgia mountains. I am a late bloomer in regard to researching the history of my ancestors (who isn't?), but absolutely love the journey! I have many ancestors in New Jersey and look to add them to my memorials on F.A.G. as often as possible. I also have an extensive family tree on, and learn of new family members all the time. Many of my ancestors are from Germany, Scotland, Ireland & England, and settled along the east coast, mostly in the NJ & NY area.
My current research interests include my mother's side of the family, surnames Betz, Sleith, King, McHoldt and Hall. My main goal here is to memorialize my family and friends and have a little fun along the way. That said, I simply will not tolerate certain members who have nothing better to do with their time than try to take that away. Rudeness will be ignored only ONCE!
Please contact me if you would like to use any of my pictures. I am also willing to transfer any of the memorials I have done volunteer photos for or any other memorials I have posted here in north Georgia. Most of them are not related to me, but they should be related to you in some way.

Mary J Sleith
I believe Mary J Sleith is my great-grandmother and was interested in seeing if you are related and potentially could have more information regarding my heritage. Sadly, my father passed away last year and I have no one on his side to help gather information. Any help you can offer is welcomed!

RE: George Raab #67027911
Hi. I just wanted you to know there is no such cemetery as Bay Shore Cemetery. Only Oakwood and St. Patrick's.

RE: George Raab #67027911
Obituary - George Raab died May 16, at the age of 65. He was the husband of Mathilde (Nee Zang) Raab. He reposed at Sullivan Funeral Home, 42 Second Avenue, Bay Shore, New York until Thursday May 18 when religious services were conducted by the Rev. Arthur Steinke of the Grace Lutheran Church of Central Islip, at 10 a.m. Committal services and cremation were at Washington Memorial Park, Coram.

RE: James Edward Monahan 49267071
Pam - not a brother at all. Do the following to see how to link a name to a memorial:

Go to your profile page;
Click on Help with Find A Grave;
Scroll down to the section labeled "Submitting Information ..." (4th section);
Scroll to the bullet "How do I add a link ..." and click on it;
Read the instruction and give it a try.

Note: copy/paste the appropriate "coding" into the bio versus attempting to re-type it yourself.

It might take a few attempts for it to look right in the bio section.

RE: James Edward Monahan 49267071
Pam - glad to help, and great you could grab a copy of the accident off BTW, the other naval officer killed has been entered on findagrave, so if you wish, you could link the name of ENS D. P. Werner to his memorial (#57226600) when you display the news article.

RE: James Edward Monahan 49267071
I fond a specific hit on by using his full name. Also narrowed it by entering the year 1946. If you don't have direct access (a Google search with the same key words should get a link and a few displayed words from the article), let me know. I think I can capture the page and send it to an email address as an attachment of some type. Mike

RE: James Edward Monahan 49267071
Reading the obit for Patricia (65119467), it clearly states her Navy husband, James, died in 1946, in a plane crash. There's a newspaper account of the accident taking place in New York; plus additional NYC records of his death.

I don't believe there's a "second" James E. Monahan, who dies in Ohio, in 1946, also the result of an aircraft accident.

The only mix up were the parents, and that appears to be straight now. :)

RE: James Edward Monahan 49267071
Pam - It looks like the relationships are straighten out. Thanks.

My bad, as I should of stated "placed" instead of "sent", since you're correct, there's no message sent if someone places an edit request.

BTW, if you wish to add the cause of death; LT. Monahan was involved in a fatal aircraft accident when approaching the Naval Air Station, located at Floyd Bennett Field.

ames Edward Monahan 49267071
Hi - I've sent a series of edits regarding this memorial - the locations and parents are mixed up, and should be instead assigned to a James E, Monahan #53616775 (of NJ); he's a child of Robert & Edna.

I've submitted to you the correct parents for LT J. E. Monahan, USNR, of Wisc. (see the headstone photo).

If you have any questions, just ask, the records are available - which is how I discovered the mix up. Cheers, Mike

Confusing Question
You left a message asking me if I was an administrator on this site. What site? Did you have a question?
