A child/granchild was baptised at St. Joseph's Cathedral in 1924 and he married out of St. Vincent Du Paul in 1947 if that helps.  My cousin is coming to the Buffalo area at the end of August and has offered  to search a cemetery for me but I don't have any clue what cemetery might be the best possibility.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!
