Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been researching my family tree since 1999. The primary branches are PODBOY/PODBOJ, ROK, PECARO/PECORARO, BORRIS, and SCHULTZ/SCHUBELTOWSKI. I love locating family members and reconnecting with the past.

Amazing similarities exist between humans of different races, colors and beliefs. The similarities that join us far outweigh the differences that separate us. There is unity within our diversity.

My objectives on Findagrave are to link family members, add obits or biographies, provide grave or crypt locations and -- with the assistance of countless volunteers (my angels!) -- include photos of final resting places. I strive for quality, not quantity.

Up until the summer of 2014, I tried to visit each memorial I created (plus others that related to them in some way) on birth and death dates to commemorate the event. It was my honor and privilege to do so. Unfortunately, life stepped into the mix and I could no longer devote the time it took to keep up with the task. Perhaps one day I can resume the practice.

If you find any errors or have additional information (dates or places, etc.), please let me know. And if you have photos of any of the people remembered on these pages, feel free to upload them.

Plot #3 is an unmarked grave in a group of 6 plots for the family. However, it is beside the marker for his sister Agnes Margaret and new memorials have been created for her and her husband. The marker for parents John Haney and Elizabeth King are in the same section. There were no markers for the young children you requested or for any other King family members.

Patti Wilson
Najechalski link
Hi Patti,
My name is Patti, as well. I noticed that you have a connection to Emily Najechalski. I was wondering if she could be related to the Najechalsi's of McKeesport and/or Erie, PA. My father was a Najechalski until his grandfather, Johannis, changed their name to McCloskey. Any help would be appreciated as I am looking for all my long lost relatives.
Thank you,
Patti Wilson

I checked all the nearby graves (and beyond) but didn't find any others that you indicated you were interested in. Sorry.

Re: Paula Csech Memorial #123766815
Thanks for all the updates to the Csech family memorials. Find A Grave prefers having the person's memorial name match the gravestone. I'll note in the bio she also used the names Paulina and Pauline. It can be vexing to search a cemetery not finding a name, then later find you created a duplicate.

Photo Request Cicio & Vanstone
Hi Patti, I have the photo for Frank and Rose Cicio and Madeline Vanstone. Buried with them are the following; Salvatore Cacioppo 1905-1961, Ann Cacioppo 1907-2006 and a Edward Francis Burback 1928-2004. All 6 are listed in the same crypt 6646. Please create memorials for the three additional names if you are interested and request the photos. Thank you, Judy

Duff-Queen of Heaven
Patti, I did not find headstones for Margaret or Eleanor Duff, only for Robert. Next to Robert is a headstone for a James P. Duff, Nov. 25, 1948 to Jan 7 2013. Please request a photo for James and I will place it on his memorial. Judy

Patti. Sorry, I removed your photo request for Edward Koener. I posted a photo for someone else on Edward's memorial. I have claimed the request for Evelyn and will get both on my next trip to Queen. Judy

RE: John & Adelaide Cushing, Dennis & Margaret Davoren
No problem. BTW, John Wagner and his wife Mary were kitty corner from the Davorens. You requested photos of Wagners in the area and they were pretty close. Maybe they're on your tree.
