I am trying to find my mother's great grandparents. Mom's grandfather was John A.Raikes(1858-1943)and her grandmother was Mary Matilda(Tillie)Hankins, both buried in Laurel Memorial Park in Pomona, NJ. According to a family bible, John's father was George Raikes who was born in Delaware or New Jersey and was killed in the Civil War. John's mother,Julie(Laws)Raikes fell down steps around that same time while pregnant, both mother and unborn child died. Julie, or Julia, was born in Delaware or NJ. John A. Raikes went to live with a Mathis family near or in Mays Landing,NJ, USA and later,lived in Atlantic City, NJ. John was a union carpenter, I believe in Atlantic City, NJ. I have searched quite a bit and cannot find any info on either of John's parents or beyond. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank You,Wayne
