RE: Routhier family members
My pleasure. I'm always happy when a relative finds my memorials! That's why I do this! You can find the funeral records for Harry and Emma here:

You'll find two documents for each of them - one the register entry and one is the Undertaker Memorandum. Sometimes you'll find a little treasured nugget of info on them.

Findagrave removed the thousands of funeral records I added, and they missed those, so I don't know how long they will stay.

The previous reply I sent to you is about Caroline Keasbey Rusling Fowler. When I hit the reply button on your message to me- it only put Caroline Keasbey in the subject box of my reply back to you.

RE: Caroline Keasbey
I was given the information about her parents from someone else. I added the information from what was received from them. I now check out any and all information sent to me and if I cant verify- I do not just add it. I have gone back to double check several memorials- this was one of the memorials that I overlooked to double check. I updated it to reflect Thomas and Elizabeth as her parents.

RE: Philipp Vassel and Anna Elisabeth Hermine Scheuch Vassel
Hi Mary,

I added the father of Philipp Vassel. I live in Buende, a small town in the middle of Germany. If you would like to have more and better photos of Philipp's grave, let me know. The cemetery is not far away from our home.
Also let me know, if you've more information about the family, so I can add the infos to your greatuncle's grave.

Regards from Germany

RE: wife of Dr. Henry C. James
I have asked Tony Chiofolo of Hammonton what his source of the Atlantic Record obits he has used. When I hear from him, will look for the good doctor.

RE: wife of Dr. Henry C. James
Searching the records available at the Roundhouse Museum, it appears that Dr. James was married to both Annie then Abbie. Both he and Abbie appear on the Mays Landing, Hamilton Twp. U.S. Census of 1930, which lists age of first marriage for both (Henry @ 22 yrs and Abbie @ 35 yrs.) His marriage to Abbie would have been within a year of Annie's death. His first marriage was most likely before or shortly after Abbies birth. I hope to see what information is available at the Atlantic County Historical Society, (an obit for Dr. James would be especially helpful.)

Maurice T. Crandol
The reason Maurice T. Crandol is linked to this tombstone is because his name is on this tombstone, as you can see by the picture. Thank you, Joyce
