Do you have anymore information? He is(was?) my cousin and I would like to get a copy of his obit.

I spoke with several relatives and no one seems to know who YOU are. I'm the only Sandy in this family. How are you related? Cousin? Who else are you related to in this family, besides Bill?

My mother was the sister of Bill's father (also named Bill). Who are you? How are you related?

Wrong answer. Bill's father was NOT named "Bill", or "William". Your Mother, being his sister, would know that. How many siblings did his father have? What is your Mom's name? You never said. What are your Maternal and Paternal Grandparents names (first and last)? How come no one knows who you are? I have so many questions. As I said before, I'm the only Sandy. I'm not going to give information out to just "anyone". Hope you understand.

Well, no one knows who you are either. Why should I give you information? That being said, my Uncle Bill and Aunt Doris had Margie, Beatie, Bill, Jimmy and Lynette Schleicher. I kept in contact with Jim until his death from cancer. He lived near Atlanta, GA. I think Lynette lives somewhere in Tennessee.
My mother's name was Thelma Jane (Schleicher) Paschke.My maternal grandmother was Rosetta Eva Lamphier and she was married to Samuel Schleicher and then to Earl Fralick.

"Well, who are you and do you know anything about my cousin Bill?"
Question 1 "who are you" : Need to know and you don't.
Question 2 "do you know anything about my cousin Bill": Your family tree briefly intersects with mine. Therefore I have infomation, ie obits, articles, etc. on several branches of your family trees. I felt that since both of you were being particularly "abrasive" and "territorial", maybe, if you both recognize that you have the same target or goal in mind you could cooperate and share. Yes, I know who his parents, siblings, children and wife are/were. Unfortunately, for your purposes I only have information on your "Cousin Bill" up to 1988. I wish you both luck on you endeavors. P.S. My name is not Sandy!

Welcome Whitman. I don't feel I'm being "abrasive" or "territorial", more like "guarded" since Bill had been taken advantage of by several people over the years, including caretakers AND relatives, due to a traumatic brain injury. The relatives I spoke with all found it strange that Sandy (in ?, U.S.) seems to appear out of nowhere and all of a sudden. Why did Sandy not attempt to contact Bill herself, while he was still alive, instead of waiting until now? If she knows so much about Bill's siblings, AND had kept in contact with Jimmy (Loganville, GA), how come THEY didn't give her any information? Bill's ex-wife, children, and grand-children have never heard of Sandy either. Nor, has she attempted to contact any of them. The information she has provided, so far, about the family history seems correct, but does not prove who SHE is. Again, I STILL don't know if Sandy is truely related. I apologize for guarding Bill's information, my only "goal" is to protect the family. Please understand!!!

Hello Whitman. Very curious about your family tree and how it "briefly" intersects with mine. Since you live so close, maybe we could meet someday and trade stories. Boy, have I got some good ones!(LOL)

Hello, Whitman.
You seem to be the voice of reason!
Hello, Sandy.
Why the big secrets if Bill actually passed away? What harm is there in letting me know if or when or where he died?
Jim had not seen Bill for years. My brother used to run into him at the Mapledale pharmacy several years ago. I gotta' say, it hurts my feelings to be treated like an outsider by someone who may also be a relative.
If it helps you to identify me, I was born in Ilion, NY, raised in Forestport, NY. My maiden name was Paschke and I still have two brothers who live in the Forestport-Remsen area. My other brother and I both live in Daytona Beach, Florida.
What will it take for you to tell me what happened to Bill? Other cousins in Fulton, NY have written me to ask if I know where he is.
Sincerely, Sandy

I do not have any other information on your cousin Bill.
Based upon my research you are looking for something that does not exist. I don't think Bill is deceased. That is just my opinion. Which doesn't mean much.
As I said it was a very brief family intersection on the Hoffert side.
Sandy-Florida: I do know who you are, I figured that out in the first post you mentioned your lineage. Like alot of us you have had 2 marriages.
I find the Topix site to be very virtrolic. Not a forum conductive to sharing family information.
If you are not aware of it there is a free site to research New York state newspapers: http://www.fultonhistory.com/
It is a good site for information.

Hello again Whitman. Just thought I'd let you know, in case you didn't already, "Aunt" Florence (Hoffert) Polinsky passed away on March 26th, 2009. Not sure if I will attend the funeral on Sat. April 4th from 11:00-1:00 or not. Obituary in the Little Falls Evening Times. Sorry it took so long to let you know, I've been sick myself and haven't been on the net. Kind of suprised no one else told you since I think the whole family reads this.

Thank you. I knew that. Other than the brother and sister who are still living I have the obits for everyone except Ambrose whose very short life I have not been able to document. I am assuming he is probably at St. John's in Newport with his parents. Whether or not he has some type of marker, who knows. I will try and check that out this summmer. I should be able to get a more definite date of birth and death at Vital statistics at the State Museum (11th Flr). Right now I have he was born in 1921 and died in 1922. I just have not found the time to get there. Again thank you.

I managed to get to Florence's funeral after all. I usually don't find out about someones passing until the funeral is over, it was nice to be able to attend for a change. I kept thinking "Wouldn't it be great if for once we could meet for anything other than a funeral?" (I guess we'll have to work on that.) I was nice to see everyone. I saw people I haven't seen in over 40 years. Joanne and Rosemary looked SUPER considering... Sorry you weren't able to make it, it would have been good to finally meet you in person. Take care.

Well, Sandy, I guess from your last posts that you are from Aunt Doris's side of the family. Maybe thats why we haven't heard of each other before.
Tell me, please, is Bill really dead? I would appreciate any info you could give me.
Thanx.
