Amanda M. Weintraut, 86, Waldron, Ind., died at 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, July 26, 1988, in the W.S. Major Hospital, Shelbyville, Ind. She had been in failing health two years.

She was born in Waldron, Ind., Dec. 26, 1901, the daughter of George F. and Magdalena Roell Weintraut. She was a lifetime resident of Waldron, and a member of the St. Vincent's Catholic Church, near Shelbyville, Ind., and the St. Anne Altar Society.

She is survived by two sisters, Frances Weintraut, Waldron, Ind., and Estella Fisher, Evansville, Ind.; one brother, Albert Weintraut, Waldron, Ind., and several nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by two brothers and four sisters.

Services will be 10:30 a.m. Friday at the St. Vincent's Catholic Church, with the Rev. Leon Reuter officiating.

Burial will be in the church cemetery.

Visitation will be at the Glenn E. George Funeral Home, St. Paul, Ind., from 5 to 8 p.m. today.

As per his death certificate, his father's name was Friederich.

There is a discrepancy as to Albert's birth year. The 1900 Federal Census says 1848 but his deaqth certificate says 1849. The census is most likely correct, as that is what he told the census worker. (Unless that person wrote it down wrong.) You would think that Albert's death certificate would be correct; however, that information is only as good as the informant giving the information. In this case, it was Albert's second wife. Could she have been wrong?

Birth name should be Robert Eugene Brechner, but his father started using his step-father's last name of Grand, so that's how Robert ended up with that last name.

Catherine was the daughter of Peter Aloysius Sinnott Jr and his wife, Catherine Ada Malarkey.

Her parents were both born in the United States; Peter in Boston, Massachusetts and Catherine in Girardville, Pennsylvania. Peter was from an Irish family in who immigrated from Enniscorthy, County Wexford, Ireland to St. John, New Brunswick, Canada. Peter's mother and father moved to the United States, first to New York and later to Boston.

After their marriage, Catherine's parents moved to Enniscorthy. It was there that daughter Catherine was born on September 27, 1901.

When Anna Malarkey Obenland, the elder Catherine's sister, wrote in a little notebook, "Catherine oldest child born Wexford died Wexford." she was writing about this little girl.

I have found Catherine's birth record, but not her death record. I believe she died sometime between her birth and 1904 in Enniscorthy and was buried on the Abbey grounds.

Catherine was the oldest child of John Mullarkey his wife, Mary Joyce. She was baptized at Saint Joseph's Catholic Church in Ashland, Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania on Nov. 27, 1967 by Father John J O'Reilly. Her sponsors were Peter Joyce and Mary Joyce. (Brother and sister-in-law? Cousin and his wife?)

Her family called her Kit or Kitty.

Catherine married Peter Aloysius Sinnott on Nov. 2, 1900 at the Church of the Transfiguration in Manhattan, New York City. One of the witnesses was a Mary Joyce. This could have been her mother, aunt, sister-in-law or cousin.

I received an abstract of their marriage certificate from the Church of the Transfiguration in 1979. I wasn't sure this was the correct document, as Catherine's birth place is listed as Shelby County, Tennessee. Her age is also off by nine years. However, the middle name is the same. The mother's maiden name is the same. The groom's name is the same. The groom's birthplace and parent's names are the same. His birth date is off by 5 years, but, on the marriage certificate, Peter's mother's maiden name was Katherine Breen. The Sinnots are buried in Dublin with an Ellen Breen. Could this be one of Peter's relatives? The date and place of the marriage is the same as what Catherine's nephew, Howard, had prior to my receipt of the certificate from the church. So, I have no doubt this is the correct marriage certificate.

Sometime prior to his marriage, Peter inherited the "Abbey of Enniscorthy," in County Wexford, so he and Catherine moved to Ireland. I found Peter's "Certificate of Registration of American Citizen" that he had to complete while in Ireland. It gives his date and place of birth. It also listed his wife and his two children who were living at the time. The paperwork stated Peter and his wife left the United States for Ireland on November 3, 1900. Note that this was one day after their marriage. They traveled to Enniscorthy, County Wexford, where they stayed until June, 1904. They arrived in Dublin on July 1 of that year. The Consular Certificate said they were in Dublin to settle an estate in the Chancery Court. This must have been the estate of the relative who had willed the Abbey to Peter.

While in Enniscorthy, they at least two children. This area needs more research. According to Anna, Catherine's sister, her notes say that their first child, born in County Wexford, was a daughter whom they named Catherine. Anna's notes also state that the little girl died there as well. Catherine's nephew, Howard Zellers, wrote in 1977 of "...a son Peter who died while they lived at the Abbey and was buried on the Abbey Estate. At the time of his death he was about two years of age."

On February 5, 2017, I emailed St. Aidan's Cathedral in Enniscorthy, asking for information on the births of the children born there to Peter A Sinnott and Catherine Malarkey. I received a response from a gentleman named Hugo Kelly. He had researched the baptismal records and found only two children: Catherine Eleanor, born on September 27, 1901 and Nicholas John, born November 18, 1903. Both were baptized in St. Aiden's. The was no mention of a child named Peter, nor was there a death recorded for Catherine Eleanor. Since the family moved to Dublin in 1904, she might have died there. However, Anna Malarkey Obenland, her aunt wrote that she died in Wexford. She is probably buried on the Abbey grounds there.

Nicholas was born March 18, 1903. He died on May 4, 1925 at the age of 22 and is buried with his family in Dean's Grange Cemetery in Dublin. Family lore says that he was imprisoned during the Easter Rising in 1916 and died either in prison or after being released. This doesn't sound correct, as Nicholas would have only been 13 at the time. These is an outside chance that he could have taken a small part in the rebellion, but I don't know how to find that out.

Eleanor was born on December 19, 1909 in Dublin. Unfortunately, she died when she was 10 years old, on Aug. 30, 1920. Eleanor is also buried with her parents in Dean's Grange Cemetery.

The 1901 Irish Census lists Peter and Catherine at 46.2 Templeshannon St, in Enniscorthy. This was a hotel, categorized as "1st class." The couple occupied one room.

Catherine's nephew also relates, "After having lived at the Abbey some time the Irish Government confiscated their estate under the Irish Land Reform Act. They were to be compensated for their land in the amount of about forty thousand pounds. Actually they received very little except for a small pension. After her husband's death, Katherine continued to receive the pension until her death. Katherine under dower rights only had a life estate following Peter's death."

The "Irish Reform Act" mentioned above was probably the Land Purchase Act in 1909. According to Wikipedia, the Act "extended the 1903 Act by allowing for the compulsory purchase of tenanted farmland by the Land Commission, but fell far short in its financial provisions." This sounds to me like the government ran out of money. Thus, as Howard said, Peter and Catherine never received all of their proceeds. Also note the word, "compulsory". Howard used the word "confiscated" but they mean the same thing. The Sinnotts were forced to give up their land.

The Ireland Census of 1911 shows Peter and Catherine living with Nicholas and Eleanor at 29.3 Sandwith St., St Mark's Parish, Trinity Ward, Dublin, Ireland. The four members of the family were all living in one room. It states that they had had three children, with two alive at that time. With this information, we can assume the son Peter must have been just a myth in the family. That census says that Peter was a "landed proprietor" and a landlord. The family was Roman Catholic.

Sometime in the early 1900's, Kit's sister, Marguerite visited the family in Ireland. It is said that she found them in "dire straights." Kit was dressed quite shabbily so Marguerite left most of her clothes with her sister when she left. Since Marguerite was a dressmaker and was in Europe for the fashion shows, the clothes must have been absolutely wonderful.

At the time Eleanor, Nicholas and Peter died, the family was living at 38 Denzile St. in Dublin. On 11 March 2014, I checked Google Earth. At that time, there was no Denzile St. There was, however, a Denzille Lane.

Kit died at the age of 80 years old on Jan. 25, 1947. At the time of her death she was living at 43 Fenian St. in Dublin. She was buried in Dean's Grange Cemetery in Dublin, grave 25 - F3- North. Her grave is unmarked.

Catherine is spelled with a "C" on her baptismal record in Pennsylvania and burial records at Dean's Grange Cemetery. On her marriage record and on Peter's Counselar Registration Certificate, her first name is spelled with a "K".

On their marriage records, Peter's last name is spelled "Sinnott." On his, Catherine's, and Eleanor's burial records the last name is spelled "Synott." However, Nicholas's burial record spells the name Sinnott.

Catherine's Find A Grave memorial number is 21867119.

Charles was one of 4 children born to Charles Joseph McHugh Sr and his wife, Elizabeth Catherine Crail. He had two brothers, George Walter, born on Oct. 31, 1910 in Chicago, Illinois and John Patrick, born in Indianapolis, Indiana on Feb. 7, 1916. The brothers had one sister, Ruth Jane, who was born in aug. 25, 1921 in Perry, Marion County, Indiana.

The family lived at 864 S. Belmont Ave. in Indianapolis for many years.

Charles married Janet Marguerite Malarkey on June 20, 1942. The small wedding took place in the Madonna Chapel of the Third Christian Church in Indianapolis, Indiana. The couple had no children.

On July 2, 1945, Charles enlisted in the United States Army. He was 20 years old.

In one document, Charles listed his occupation as a designing engineer. In the 1940 census, he was an apprentice tool maker at an airplane motor factory.

Charles was the son of Karl (Charles) and Friedericka Bernecker Obenland. He was born in New York City in October, 1871.

He married Agnes Magee on October 25, 1893 in Manhattan County, New York. The marriage certificate is #13716. (Note: There is a marriage for a Joseph Lynn and a Delia Brady that has the same certificate number.)

In several issues of the Brooklyn Daily Eagle, Charles is mentioned as being a member of a group called The Silver Star Social Club.

The couple had two children, Agnes, born on May 4, 1894 and Charles A, born two years later.

The 1900 Census lists the family living on Surf Avenue in Brooklyn. Charles was working as an inspector for the railway. (Brooklyn Rapid Transit Company, later the Brooklyn Manhattan Transit.) He worked out of the Culver Depot. The family actually lived at the depot for many years.

This is right in the heart of Coney Island. Imagine growing up there like the Obenland children did! They lived and played right next to the Dreamland Amusement Park, the Iron Tower, the Iron Pier and just down the street from Steeplechase Park and Luna Park, with its amusements and thousands of electric lights.

By 1920, the family had moved to 550 Surf Avenue. According to Google Earth, this is where the New York Aquarium now stands.

Charles was killed while working in Brooklyn on June 19, 1929. An article regarding his death appeared in the evening edition of the Syracuse Herald on June 20, 1929: "Angered because he was prevented from boarding a congested street car with his wife and two children, a powerfully built man struck a blow to the jaw of Charles Obenland, veteran inspector at West Sixth Street and Surf Avenue, Coney Island, which killed him. The assailant and his family escaped in the confusion." Another, more informative article was found in the Brooklyn Daily Eagle. Published on June 20, 1929, that article is included in this memorial. I have yet to find any information as to the identification of his assailant or if he was ever charged or prosecuted.

The Obenland family was living at 1427 E. 4th Street when Charles was killed. This home, still standing, is about 20 blocks from the beach at Coney Island.

Charles was buried on June 22, 1929 in the Evergreens Cemetery. Unfortunately, when it comes to this family, the cemetery records are inaccurate. Charles Louis is not listed on their website, but his wife and son are. They are listed under Obenland. I called the office and the clerk checked the plot book and in that they are all listed under Oberland. I went back and looked for Charles Louis on their website and he isn't listed under Oberland either!

Edith was born on November 29, 1891. She was the daughter of Canadian-born Thomas Henry Elliott and his wife, Agnes Amelia Boberg. Agnes was born in Sweden. They were married in Indianapolis, Indiana in 1889. Thomas worked as a painter for the railroad. There were two other children in the family; Arthur George and Selma Agnes.

On New Year's Day, 1914, Edith married Joseph John Malarky in a small ceremony at her parents' house at 1025 N. Arsenal Ave. in Indianapolis.

The couple had two children. They welcomed a son, Joseph Arthur, on March 11, 1916 in Indianapolis. Daughter Janet Marguerite was born three years later on October 21, 1919.

Joe worked for several car dealerships before going into business with W.H. Ehrich. They were the sole REO dealership in Indianapolis.

Sometime after 1955, Joe and Edith moved to Southern California. They lived in Beverly Hills, close to Joe's aunt and uncle, Marion and Hector Gillis.

Edith passed away on January 19, 1966. Her funeral was held at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, California in their Little Chapel of the Flowers. She was buried at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, California. She is with her husband in the Garden of Ascension, Lot 7812, Space 2.

Edith's Find A Grave Memorial number is 28796266.

Eleanor was the second daughter and third child of Peter Aloysius Sinnott Jr and his wife, Catherine Ada Malarkey, both of whom were United States citizens of recent Irish descent. She was born in Dublin, Ireland and died there as well.

The 1911 Irish Census lists Eleanor, living with her parents and brother, Nicholas, at 29 Sandwith St., in Dublin. This same census also says that all four of them were living in one room.

Unfortunately, Eleanor died when she was only 10 years old. She was buried in Dean's Grange Cemetery, where later the rest of her family would be buried. Her grave at 25-F3-North, is unmarked.

Her Find a Grave memorial number is 36159392.

Elizabeth Agatha Allen, daughter of Adelbert Robert Allen and his wife, Lula May Webber, was born on 11 Jul 1904 in Byron, Alfalfa County, Oklahoma. The family ws living in Wichita, Kansas in 1910.

According to trees on Ancestry, Elizabeth married a David Raymond Malmborg and later went on to marry Stewart Byron Nye on 30 Sep 1934 in Waukegan, Lake County, Illinois. They lived for a time in Michigan and later Tucson, Arizona before settling in in San Diego County, California.

Elizabeth Allen Nye passed away on 20 Nov 1980 in La Mesa, San Diego County, California. According to her Find A Grave Memorial, number 105327488, her ashes were scattered off Mather Point at the Grand Canyon, Arizona.

Stewart Byron Nye was born 28 jan 1906 in Saint Joseph, Berrien County, Michigan and passed away on 29 Dec 1981 in Salem, Marion County, Oregon. His ashed were also scattered off Mather Point at the Grand Canyon. (F ind a Grave memorial number 105315163)

The only problem with this person being the wife of Charles W Kleinegger is that the only Census they are in while married is the 1925 Kansas State Census. This census states that Charles's wife was born in Kansas. When I tried to look at the actual document, the wrong page comes up on Ancestry. Further research is needed.

From Wikipedia:

's-Heer Arendskerke is a small village of approximately 1300 inhabitants in the municipality of Goes in the south-western Netherlands.

The settlement consists of two circles of houses around a Protestant church, on a single main road with an obsolete village hall. On the other side of the main road is a little industrial site called Eindewege (end of he road), containing tin huts and small garages. The remainder of the area is given over to fields for agriculture.

There is one primary school and one secondary school. There is also a GP and a nurse / physiotherapist.

The village also has a fire brigade unit with two trucks.

The Rijkswaterstaat maintains a winter depot here, with reserve stocks for dyke repairs.

There was once a railway station before the Second World War, but it was demolished in 1928.

's-Heer Arentskerke was a separate municipality until 1970.[1]

Geraldine was born in Los Angeles in 1915. Her parents were James Lee Huston and Emma Cecilia Bachmann Howe. (The Bachmann was Emma's name at birth; Howe was her last name by adoption.) Geraldine had one brother, James Francis Huston.

Geraldine's father was a traveling salesman and her mother Emma kept house.

Geraldine's brother James was a musician, playing trumpet with pal Phil Harris back in the 1930's in the Los Angeles area. (The Phil Harris who sang "The Bear Necessities" in the cartoon, The Jungle Book.) James, or Jimmie, as his family called him, committed suicide just off CA 1 (Pacific Coast Highway) near the Malibu pier in 1937. Back then it was called Roosevelt Highway.

Geraldine grew up in Southern California. At one time she lived on Beachwood Dr, in Hollywood, near the big "Hollywood" sign. She told her daughter, Cecilia, how they would go to the beach to a fancy place called the Edgewater Club. (Location unknown.)

Geraldine was married to George David Adamson on March 2, 1933 in Los Angeles County, CA. They divorced in 1939 in Los Angeles County, CA (#3180546)

On June, 30, 1940, Geraldine married Harold Edwin Obenland, of Los Angeles, in Yuma, AZ. There were two children from this marriage: Michael Edwin and Cecilia Ann. The couple made their home in Arcadia, CA. Geraldine and Harold's divorce was final on March 3, 1953.

During her lifetime, Geraldine worked as a bacteriologist, bookkeeper, drapery sewer and even a donut maker at Winchell's. Times were tough because both of her children suffered from severe asthma and it was hard for Geraldine to keep a job when she was always having to rush the kids to the emergency room.

At one time, in about 1962, Geraldine was out of money, so she wrote bad checks to feed her family. She was eventually arrested and actually taken to the jail in Arcadia, where she and her children lived. Her daughter can still remember the minute Geraldine decided to do that. They were walking home along Duarte Rd in Arcadia. Michael came to meet them and got upset when his mother said she had no money for food. Geraldine told her daughter, "I know what I have to do." To this day, Cecilia regards her mother as a heroine even though writing bad checks is illegal.

Geraldine always warned her two children about the "green eyed monster", and had lots of sayings that she used often. She would say, "Pride goeth before a fall" and "You can't get blood out of a turnip." She'd say this during hard times...unfortunately, the landlord couldn't get blood out of a turnip, but he sure could kick us to the curb! My favorite saying Geraldine used was, "That's a bunch of hooey!"

Geraldine died in a convalescent hospital in Monrovia, CA after a long bout with cancer. She was only 53. Her ex-husband, Harold paid for the funeral arrangements. During the funeral, he told their daughter, Cecilia that Geraldine was the only woman he had ever loved.

He might be John Wallace Price, born 9 24 1875. WWI Draft registration shows this man with his wife, Jennie L Price, living in Omaha, Douglas County Nebraska. (Sep 1918) Unfortunately, the document doesn't state where he was born. Also, this John was a salesman as was the John who married Emma.
