1951 Obituary

Postby luclor97 » 03 Nov 2016, 17:57

Sorry for the delay.

The full name of my ancestor is Theresa Ward (Foppiani) born in 1888 in SO Orange, New Jersey and buried in March 31, 1951 in St Charles Cemetery in Farmingdale. I think that she was survived by her husband George Ward and two daughters, Audrey and Muriel.

I found nothing in Fulton...

Thanks for your help

I would request the obituary from the library I posted above. Is there particular information you're looking for in the obituary?

On a side note, the research fees charged by that cemetery are insane.

http://www.ccbklyn.org/services/genealo ... formation/

But they do have a free online locator:

http://www.ccbklyn.org/information-news ... e/#results

She and George L. Ward are both buried at Section: 19 | Row: EE | Plot: --- | Grave: 106.

They and their daughters all appear in the 1940 census (see attached).

Yes C_Artale,
Theresa and her husband George are buried in St. Charles Cemetery in Farmingdale.
This 1940 Census is correct...

I would like to find the obituary Theresa Ward to find out where she lived when she died ...

Thanks
