Thanks for your response to my Mayer query.
I think my Lorenz Joseph Mayer may well be buried in the Lutheran All Faith Cemetery in Maspeth, Queens, NY although when I called there I was unable to verify it.
I believe he lived in Brooklyn after his first wife died and he left Mankato, Minnesota. I believe Lorenz Joseph Mayer married, as a second wife, a woman with the last name of Poletti there in Brooklyn.
If you want to check my information further, I do have a GEDCOM posted on the Web at:http://awt.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=:26935...
Perhaps you'll find something posted there that will help you. If you find any corrections or can make any additions that will help me or others, please let me know.
I've also attached my long tree twig end (or research) list below, I share your problem for I'm still trying to find many of my ancestors and their descendants.
My research list runs about four pages long so you might not want to print it out. I would appreciate it however if you would just quickly scan the capitalized last names and let me know if any of the names jump out at you and if you have any information on them you can share with me
Thanks for your interest and response.
