On May 15, 2005, a visit to Calvary Cemetery the tombstones of the Szczepankiewicz family were located. For grave #1 on Lot #805 in Section 6 the stone was engraved as Antoni J. 1866-1931.

There is a large monument with only the Szczepankiewicz name on it in front of the three flat stones for Antoni, Victoria and Charles.

The Lorain Health Department's death record for Ladislaus Anthony Szczepankiewicz shows he was born on March 15, 1873 and was 58 years, 2 months and 18 days old at the time of his death on June 2, 1931.
