Toni’s Monkey

Donna seems to know a whole lot more on my first cousin once removed than I do.

She wrote this comment yesterday, and she has fond memories of Toni.

I remember Aunt Toni  as I knew her.  She did have the one child Raymond.  Not sure what happened to her husband, however when I was young and in school she was living with a man named George who was the custodian at my school.  Toni at that time lived in a mobile home in Plainville.  I would love going to visit her because she had a pet monkey.  It was always fun going to see her.  She seemed like a free spirit to me.

I knew a little more about Elmer the bartender.

Antoinette’s final resting place…

What about their son Raymond? I believe he died in 2002 and left no descendants to remember him.

What about C. Greer who photographed the headstones?

He or she seems a nice person.

I manage~~not own~~the memorials I place on FindaGrave. Please use the SAC (edit feature) when asking for changes. This prevents mistakes because the edit feature connects me to the right memorial. Please read this ★ ☆ ★ FAQs ★ ☆ ★ before you intentionally make a duplicate of a memorial (which is a no no): I do transfer out of guidelines a lot if I feel you will maintain the memorial you request better than I can ~ which means a beloved aunt, cousin, best friend, etc. (Just don’t ask for a whole cemetery or a whole list of the same name especially if you happened to find this site and have been a member for a few days). Stick around for awhile – contribute. Although a great place for genealogy this is a GRAVES REGISTRATION SITE!

YES – you have permission to use the photos I took for your personal family files. I would appreciate it if you cited where you found the photo and if possible link back to FindAGrave.com.

However unless you are a nonprofit organization, this is not to be copied & pasted on a commercial site like Ancestry. They charge a lot of money for their services and should not take advantage of volunteer work.

  1. It’s a good thing you met Donna then since she knows more about your cousin than you do – putting the whole story together – great as always.

    • Donna had one clue (about who Odna was on some pictures) which led to identify more ancestors like Frank Ritchie.
