Hi Paula, I'm Dorothy Houpt from Florida. I believe we met at the Chester Rural Cemetery at one time and decieded we must be related.My Grandfather George Burrell was brother to Annie Burrell Fromal.
We found a tombstone with the names Joseph Fromal Jr 1911-1944 and Joseph Fromal Sr 1891-1957
I also have Obituaries from the Chester Times for Joseph Jr and Joseph Sr.
Joseph Jr was dated Sept 9, 1944 He died from injuries sustained in a fall from a crane at the Penn Steel Casting company.He was survived by his wife Margaret Moulton Fromal
and three children Mildred, Joseph and Leonard.Interment at Chester Rural Cemetery.
Joseph Fromal Sr. obit dated June 8, 1957 age 66,Mr Fromal retired from the Phila Navy Yard died yesterday.Survived by his wife Annie Burrell Fromal, Children Francis ( I have his obit also He was kown as Horsey ) Charles,Elmer, Ruth ,Lorraine and Betty Ann
The obit say's burial will be in Glenwood Cemetery , but there is no listing for a Joseph. I believe he is at Chester Rural like the tombstone say's
Here are the names of Fromal's buried at Glenwood.
Annie Burrell Fromal 1889-1976
Beulah Thomason Fromal d Sep 29,2010
Elmer Fromal 1916- 1975
Thomas K Fromal Jr. d Nov.23,2008
You can check these out on www.findagrave.com
There are more newspaper articles you can check out.
I am drawing a blank on the web site right now I will have to get back to you on that.
happy searching Dorothy
