Hello, I am not related. Is it possible that William changed his last name to Labby/Labbey?
I found a william Labbey married to a Sylvia in the 1930 census. Then I found a William Labby buried in Woodlawn Cemetery in Green Bay, who died in 1932. Also in Woodlawn Cemetery are a set of 1 day old Labbey twins, who died in 1922, Geo. Henry & John Wm.
Maybe Sylvia remarried, being a young widow?

Yes, I believe you are right. The information you've presented does mesh with what I have in my records. I'm not surprised my great-uncle changed his surname because it is infernally difficult to pronounce. Where I live, we are often called "Labby" as it just trips off the tongue that much more easily.
Thank you very, very much for the information - you rock!

Has anyone done the obit look up for you yet for William or either of the twins? I am also working on your photo requests of the headstones on find-a-grave.

Not as far as I know. Thanks for working on the photo requests. I would like to come up to the area myself some time, but the price of gasoline has gone through the roof recently. Which kind of puts a damper on long drives.

Hello,
I am a headstone photo volunteer. Someone had asked me to locate the Labbey twins in Woodlawn Cemetery and their office said there is no record of the twins; either in burial records or on the maps. Where did you find them? There is someone who is still looking for them.

I did find William Labbey's headstone, though badly worn.

I did walk all of section E as well and didn't see the headstone. Any recollection of what it may look like or where within the section?

I'm the one who requested the photos of their headstones (yeah, I know, I have a strange user name on Find A Grave). I found the details on their graves from the Gravesite Search web page. It said they were in section Park E. If William's headstone is in poor shape, it's entirely possible their headstones either sunk down; or they are so badly eroded as to be unreadable. Another possibility is they were exhumed and their coffins put in the same grave with their father. This was actually done with a sibling who died as an infant; her maternal grandmother's grave was opened and her casket placed on top. There is no mention of her on the headstone as of now, although my Mom would like to place a small marker for her.

I find that at this cemetery the stones are in bad shape in general. I find even plenty of them from the 1960's and 70's that are badly worn already. I think it is all the trees that make this a problem.

I'll keep looking for you!
