Patricia Puma 9-11 Victim

Post by rp76226 »

Months after the horrible 9-11 attack on the World Trade Center, my wife and I were on vacation on the West Coast. We stopped at a bakery/coffee shop and they had newspapers for customers to read. That's when I read the following story on Patricia Puma who died in the collapse of the Twin Towers. I have never found a connection to our family. Puma was her married name. Kevin Puma was her husband. I have nearly 1,200 Puma's on my Tree, but not them as I do not know Kevin Puma's ancestors. Wondering if anyone does.

Hi,
I took a look on Ancestry, and found that:
one Kevin Puma married Patricia Wilson in Staten Island, NY
one Kevin Puma lived with spouse Patricia in Ocean City, Maryland in 1998-99
one Kevin Puma lived with spouse Patricia in Dover, Delaware in 1998-99 (maybe they are the same?)
one Kevin Puma lived in Dover, Delaware in 1988-2007

maybe this can help

They were living in Staten Island at the time of her death. I tried FamilySearch.org but it did not provide any ancestors.

Here is more information about Patricia

One story mentions that her husband, Kevin Puma, is/was a New York City Transit worker.

A careful reading through the guest book provides some family names.
You were looking for possible Puma connections. Patricia's mother-in-law's name was Irene.
