CROSLEY

Peoria

I recently found another Crosley buried in the same cemetery as Joseph. He is a William Crosley, birth 1865, death July 12, 1910 and buried in the Springdale Cemetery, in Peoria. It is my belief that this William Crosley may be an Uncle to Joseph E. Crosley. Would someone possibly have an obituary for this William Crosley.

PFAINDLER  

John Pfaindler (from  Switzerland), Wife Doria Pfaindler (From Germany), Son Peter Pfaindler (b. PA), Daughter Lizzia Pfaindler (b. PA),  Son Harria Pfaindler  (b. PA)

SELF Harry Pfaindler  (b. PA), WIFE Ella Pfaindler (b. IL), DAU Pearl Rolff  (b. IL)

I can't find out who Pearl was married to before she passed away at 30 years of age.  We know Peter Pfaindler went to Wyoming in Laramie and was part of a group protesting in regards to some land. We also know that he went to California to get married, but we don't know who to. We know Harry and Ella were buried here in California where I am from at Forest Lawn in Glendale. 

 Harry was part owner to Oelkers- Pfaindler Foundry Co in East Peoria. His work was on the USS Monitor. (Per my Father in law) 
There was also an Ulrich Pfaindler, but I do not know if he is related to this group. 
If anyone has any other information please contact me! We would very much appreciate it!
