I finally obtained the death certificate for Angelo Anthony Baroni (Baron).  After a third review of his wife’s naturalization papers, I noticed a small note that indicated that her husband died in October of 1913.  So I hired someone to go to the New Jersey State Archive to retrieve a copy of the death certificate.

Angelo Baroni Death Certificate

Angelo was born 14 May 1872 in Mantova, Lombardia, Italy.  He was the out of wedlock son of Carlos Bellizario (sp?) and Lucia Parmelli.  The old family story indicates that the sexual relation between Lucia and Carlos  may have been non-consentual.

Angelo died of Cirrhosis of Liver on October 18, 1913 at his home in 83 West 6th Street, Paterson, New Jersey.  He was 41 years old.  He left behind four daughters (Marie, Jean, Stephanie and Yolanda) and one boy (Michael). Multiple sources indicate that he was a cigar salesman.  He was buried at Laurel Green Cemetery just outside of Paterson.

The Baron Scherer Chapel

The Baron Scherer Chapel
The Baron Scherer Chapel (“The Chapel on the Hill”) is located in the Bellevue Cedar Hill Memory Gardens in Daytona Beach. Fl. Karen Szczeniak, the volunteer Find-A Grave photographer who took the pictures, called the Chapel grand and impressive.  She says the chapel is in generally good condition but has some minor water seepage on one wall.  The wooden benches may be in need of some touch-up too.  Attached to the Chapel are two wings of an ordinary mausoleum structure.  The cemetery employee who took her there says it is the only one like it on the cemetery grounds… “and the cemetery is hugh!”
Buried in the Chapel are:
Marie Baron Scherer
b. 14 May 1897  in Italy
d. 3 Nov 1992 in Contra Costa, California
Luis Pradillo Scherer
b. 20 Jun 1895 in Mexico City
d. Apr 1964 in Volusia County, Florida
Wylda (Yolanda Ofelia) Baron Nimidoff
b. 7 Jul 1905 in Patterson, NJ
d. 25 Nov 1986 in Contra Costa, California
Demitri Alexander Nimidoff
b. 12 Feb 1896 in Russia
d. Feb 1968 in Lafayette, Contra Costa, California
Gean (Eugene) A Baron
US Navy – World War II
b. 29 May 1921, Cleveland, OH
d. Mar 1984 Jackson Hole, Wyoming

Laurel Newman Photo Collection

September 28, 2009

Today, Laurel Newman, daughter of Eileen Smith sent me a box of wonderful photo’s from the Eileen Smith side of the family.  Thank You Laurel!

Laurel rescued them from a flood at her mother’s house.  She tried to clean them up as best she could, but in addition to the water damage, they also suffered some oil damage in the flood.  I scanned them in at high resolution and tried to crop out as much of the damage as I could without losing any of the important surroundings.  Now we just need to identify those photo’s that have the generic “img_XXX” label.

Excerpt From: Get That Picture! The Story Of The News Cameraman
By A. J. EZICKSON

The steel strike disorders everywhere were terrifying experiences for the news photographers. At Warren, Ohio, three cameramen, Charles Wilk, Cleveland manager of Wide World Photos, Mack Baron, of International News, and Jack Hines, Associated Press staffer, were fired upon and dropped into a ditch as bullets whizzed over their heads. At the time, they were taking pictures of a food airplane landing in the Warren steel plant enclosure.

DELHI — Walter Clarke Root III, 78, of Clifton Park, former longtime Delhi resident, passed away Saturday, Feb. 23, 2002, at Schuyler Ridge Health Care Residence in Clifton Park after a battle with Parkinson’s Disease.

The son of the late Walter C. Jr. and Helen (Crane) Root, he was born Oct. 10, 1923, in Kansas City, Mo., where he began his formal education at the University of Kansas, then joining the U.S. Merchant Marine. He was appointed a cadet midshipman and graduated from the Merchant Marine Academy at Kings Point with a bachelor of science degree, later seeing duty on T-2 tankers in the Pacific, Indian Ocean and Persian Gulf until the end of World War II.

After the war, he began a long career in the hospitality industry, eventually going to New York City where he served as domestic sales representative for Sheraton Hotels.

He later became director of sales for Intercontinental Hotels Corp., a subsidiary of Pan-American Airways, for which he traveled extensively, assisting in opening hotels in all Pan-Am destination cities in Latin America.

Later a director of group travel and sales incentive tours for Embassy Tours, Walter subsequently re-joined Sheraton Hotels as director of international sales and, in 1968, became general manager of Grapetree Bay Hotel in St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands.

The Root family came to Delhi in 1972, where Walter joined the Hospitality Division at SUNY-Delhi and taught hotel sales and marketing, housekeeping and tourism for 13 years until retirement. He moved to Clifton Park three years ago.

A U.S. Navy reservist, Boy Scout counselor and assistant troop leader, he was founder of the Association of Group Travel Executives and was a member of the Hotel Sales and Marketing Association, St. Mary’s Parish in Waterford and served in numerous charitable and civic volunteer capacities over the years.

Surviving are his wife of 52 years, Barbara (Sessions) Root; two sons, Walt of Clifton Park, and Bill and his wife, Ellen, Root of Altamont; four grandchildren, Kevin, Brian and Megan Root, Samantha and her husband, Brian, Taylor; and a great-grandson, Austin Taylor.

He was predeceased in 2001 by his only sister, Helen Hill.

Friends are invited to call from 7 to 9 p.m. today at the Hall & Peet Funeral Home in Delhi, where the family will be in attendance and a vigil service will be held at 8:30 p.m. A funeral Mass, to celebrate Walter’s life, will be at 11 a.m. Tuesday, Feb. 26, at St. Peter’s Church, Delhi, where he was a former parishioner. The Rev. James McDevitt will preside, assisted by deacon Thomas O’Connell. Burial will be later in the Woodland Cemetery. A reception, following the Mass, will be at the SUNY-Delhi Hospitality Center.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions to the American Parkinson’s Disease Association, 1250 Hylan Blvd., Suite 4-B, Staten Island, NY 10305, will be appreciated.

Arrangements are entrusted to Robert A. Peet & Son, Delhi.
