info on deceased Grandfather: Herbert Fogal

My grandfather (whom I nor his 5 other grandchildren never met) died in 1959, possibly 1960 somewhere in the Southern California area. His only child, my father, also Herbert Fogal had not seen him since he was 3 yrs. old (New York). My grandfather was remarried for many years when he died in California. I am searching for obituary records and would like to locate the cemetary where he is buried. Again, his name is Herbert (Ambrose??) Fogal, died in 1959 or '60 in Southern CA at the age of 55 or near that. Anyone in Southern CA that would possibly search the local cemetaries on my behalf? Please, if you means a lot. Thank

It appears the Herbert you are looking for is
my 2nd cousin once removed. I do not have info
on him in California other than he died in
Los Angeles Dec 1959, but have considerable info
on his ancestors and relatives.
I have him born in NYC 19 Dec 1904 and died
Los Angeles Dec 1959. His first wife was
Marie Schlumbohn born in 1907. They were married
in St. Anns Church in the Bronx, NY.
His second wifes name was Adebel.
His parents were Franklib Fulton Fogal b.1863
NYC and Mary K. Van Orden b. 1864 NYC d. 1930 NYC.
I am in contact with a direct line cousin of
yours living in Delaware.
Your gg grandfather George and my g grandfather
John were sons of John Fogal b. 1796 and Catharine
Amelia Provost b. 1800.
If this fits with what you have I would certainly
like to hear from you. Have much Fogal data and
Provost data going back to 1545.


Thank you for the Fogal information

Hello Everett: You just don't know how much this information means to me. My father, Herbert William Fogal ( born 23 Oct 1928, was the only child of my grandfather Herbert Ambrose Fogal (I may have the middle name incorrect). We MUST defenitly be related as my father was from the Bronx, NY. His parents were Herbert Fogal and Maude Anna Schlumbohm (I belive your e-mail stated her name as Marie). I know my grandfather was in some branch of the military and when he and my grandmother divorced, he moved to California and did in fact remarry. I do believe her name was Adebel. This is the very first time in my life I have ever had any more information whatsoever on my family on my father's side (Fogal side). I am the youngest daughter of 5 girls (6 grandchildren all together from the Fogal side). My parents are Herbert William Fogal and Jeanette Fogal (mothers' maiden name is Salerno). They married on 14 June 1951 had a total of 6 children (5 girls and 1 son who is the youngest of the Fogal grandchildren). Please contact me directly at my E-Mail address: OR at my other E-Mail address which is I have so much more information, my address: all of our names, birthdates, etc....Plus, of course, I have so many more questions. I am looking forward to your reply. Thank you so very much for responding to my searh in regards to my grandfather. Sincerelly, Carol Ann Fogal (married name Carol Ann Fogal-Pratt). or (living in Sacramento, CA)

Dear Everett, I am Herbert W. Fogal's 3rd daughter, Janet. I was born on March 4, 1955 in Huntinton, Long Island, NY. I wanted to add my children to the list, so here goes: Daughter, Erica Buehner, born December 16, 1978. Son, Justin Thomas Buehner, born Sept. 26, 1980. Daughter, Dina Jeanette Kupfer, born March 7th, 1987. My first husband's name was Tom Buehner, and we were married in June of 1978, then divorced in 1984. I remarried Samuel P. Kupfer in February of 1986 and we had one child (Dina) who's now 13 years old. I also have 3 grandchildren, David Buehner, born March 7, 1996, Destiney Polier, born January 20th, 1998, and Danielle Polier, born April 25th, 1999. (These are all my daughter's children) and she is not married, however, she gave the last two children her fiance's last name. Her fiance's name is Jacob Polier and they will be getting married sometime this year. I hope this helps with the Fogal name...and I want to thank you for all that you've done in helping us to find out more about our heritage!! Sincerely, Janet

Just Want To Thank You...

Hi Sean,
My name is Linda Haner. I'm not sure wether you are the one I spoke to on the phone in or around 2004. If you are the one who lived in Virginia, I believe you told me that your wife and I are cousins. You had called my in-laws to get my phone number. If you could please contact me sometime I would greatly appreciate it:
Thanks, Linda Haner
