Robert Quentin Storck
Thank you for your suggestion. I believe, based on my research, that the information I have on this memorial is correct. My first clue is that his obituary states he was predeceased by his son Gerald Robert Storck. Gerald is buried near Robert, his mothers maiden name is Sanchez on birth and death records and his parents are Robert Q Storck and Mary L Sanchez on his marriage record. On the marriage record for Robert Storck and Mary Sanchez the parents of Robert are listed as Robert Quentin Storck and Helen Fauch. Robert and Mary were married in LosAngeles County and Gerald was born there. It appears they were later divorced. I found a later marriage record for Robert Q Storck in San Joaquin County and again the parents are Robert and Helen. When I looked for census records for Robert I found census records for a Robert, son of Robert and Helen/Nellie and for a Robert, son of Henry and Anna - both in New York and with transcribed approximate birth years close to each other.
I know you said that he was your mothers cousin and that you had records proving this Roberts father was Henry (you didn't mention the name I have for his mother being incorrect) so I don't want to ignore your belief. I don't have a subscription to Ancestry so can't see your tree or records that require a subscription even if you had been able to link it in your suggestion, but if you send me your email address through another edit suggestion on Roberts page I will be happy to send you my email so you can send me copies of the documents and we can discuss this with you further to see if we can sort this out (I choose to not post my email publicly).

RE: Death certificate Charles = Shaie Storch
Thrilled that it all worked out and that you discovered new info on the family tree! It's events like this that make this so rewarding.

RE: Re: Shaie Storch
Would love to hear what you found out about Shaie Storch when you get the death certificate.

The death index seems to be a direct hit! I will be in Manhattan next week doing some research. I will be in the same building were the turn of the century death certificates are kept. I can see if I can get you a copy.

Glad I could help.

Shaie's father's Hebrew name as it appears on the stone is "Yitzchak Isaac". It was a common practice in Eastern Europe when giving names to children to give them one name in Hebrew followed by the Yiddish equivalent. "Yitzchak" is Hebrew for Isaac, and "Isaac" is Yiddish for, obviously, Isaac.

In case your curious, other examples are "Dov Ber", both mean Bear in English, Dov, being Hebrew, Ber being Yiddish; "Tzvi Hersh", Hebrew then Yiddish for Deer; "Zev Vulf", Hebrew and Yiddish meaning Wolf.

Photos have been posted. As I noted in the captions, there is an unfortunate shadow in the lower right hand corner of the pictures, it is from the monument in the next row. The shadow doesn't impact one's ability to read the inscription, it just offends my sense of aesthetics.

RE: Storch at Mt. Neboh
It's her husband! He was 67 yrs old when he died in 1908. His Hebrew name as inscribed on the stone is Yishayahu - common English translation is Osias. The "English" name inscribed on the stone "Shaie" is a transliterated diminutive of Yishayahu. If you create a memorial, I will be happy to post the photos.

I would suggest emailing the support team at Find-A-G to find out about how to add notes for Mt. Neboh.

Storch at Mt. Neboh
Does the name Shaie Storch (died 1908) have any meaning for you? I came across his grave two rows over from Sima Storck and the stones are similar in style.

RE: Thank you, thank you!
FYI - the cemetery records for Mt. Neboh were in fact transferred to Mt. Carmel (which is next door to Mt. Neboh) when the Mt. Neboh office closed. The records were not converted to electronic form; they are the old paper records and they are stored in the basement. Their policy is to respond to written requests only for Mt. Neboh burial info.

RE: Thank you, thank you!
Glad I could help. Call it Divine Intervention. Your lucky that I read Hebrew. I was photographing a grave at Mt. Neboh and I passed a Burial Society gate, all in Hebrew, and I stopped to read it. The name of the society rang a bell (your request). It's not an incredibly large burial society so I walked the grounds and there she was!!
