There is record of an Anthony Paul Amber on Woods Edge, buried 18 Nov 1922. I do not find a record of him having been moved to Lot 7
but you might want to check further with the office at Pine Lake Cemetery about this (219/362-2017). This may be the Anthony Paul of your interest and maybe not connected with the others???

DONNELLY - Herndon W. DONNELLY is buried in grave 7, Lot #257 of the Old Northern Woods section at Pine Lake Cemetery. He was buried 24 May 1972. His Veterans Graves Registration Form shows his residence as 508 Detroit Street, La Porte; next of kin, daughter Mrs. Linda KIESMAN, La Porte; born Sept. 8, 1916 at Logan County, Kentucky.
  His date of death was May 22, 1972 and cause was illness. He served in the U. S. Army, Medical Detachment, WWII and his rank was Pfc. He enlisted Dec. 15, 1942 and was discharged Nov. 22, 1946.
  His obituary was purblished in the La Porte HERALD-ARGUS. It reports his deah at Pine Lake Division Hospital at 8:33 a.m. and that he had been ill for nine years. Cuter Funeral Home was in charge of the burial and Rev. Robert J. Burgbacher officiated. His parents were Arthur and Florence (BAGBY) Williams DONNELLY. He came to La Porte from Chicago and lived in La Porte for 25 years. He had been a mortician in Michigan for 15 years. In La Porte, he worked at Modine Mfg. Co. (on Brighton Street). He was a member of the First Baptist Church and Post #83 of the American Legion. Three daughters survived: Mrs. Linda KIESMAN, La Porte; Mrs. Sandra GREENWALT, San Diego, CA; and Miss Cynthia K. DONNELLY, at home; one son, Craig DONNELLY, Griffith, IN. Also surviving were his mother and one sister, Mrs. Neil HARMSEN, Chicago. On his grave are two (2) veteran markers: one is an upright marker and the other is a flat bronze marker in the ground. Buried in grave 6 is Edna Louise DONNELLY. She was buried 08 Aug 1951. Haverstock Funeral Home was in charge. There are no open graves on this lot and no other DONNELLY is buried here. Information donated by: Fern Eddy Schultz, La Porte County (IN) Historian ,   President, The Pine Lake Cemetery Assn.
     Cynthia Donnelly-Watson states - Edna was Dad's little sister. The family called her Louise. She died, as I was told, from TB. My father was not a mortician. I don't know why the family insisted on saying that. When he met my mother, he was driving a bread truck and later drove ambulance and furniture truck for Connelly Funeral Home in Cassopolis, MI. Connelly also owned the furniture store in town. The Modine part is right though. Anyway, I was going to do a short biography so I will fill in the missing and erroneous blanks my family insisted on. Gram's name of Williams was from her second marriage to Robert E. Williams Sr as Arthur Donnelly died in the flu epidemic of 1918 down in Russellville, KY, She is also the mother of another veteran there at Pine Lake, Robert E. Williams JR. from that second marriage.

DEATH OF DR. J. LOOMIS- - Dr. J. Loomis, of this city, breathed his last at a quarter past one o’clock, on Saturday, the 15th inst., aged 62 years. He was born July 23, 1815, in Clark co., Ohio and moved with the father’s family to Laporte county, Indiana., in 1831. On account of poor health he was not permitted to work on the farm and n 1844 he commenced the study of medicine. He was married in 1847 to Miss Virginia Brown, daughter of the late Gen. John Brown, of Laporte, and resided in Logansport, Ind. Moved to Niles in 1849 where he soon worked up a good practice and made many friends. He built the house where he lately resided in 1853. He practiced altogether for 25 years, with much success, when he was taken with a shock of palsy and for the past twelve years he has been an invalid and a great sufferer. At times his agony was most excruciating and we have been with him many times during his long years of suffering, and he would often pray to be delivered by death. Dr. Loomis was a generous and kind-hearted man, going night and day to the dwellings of the poor, without hope of reward. His hosts of friends have sympathized with him in his sufferings and grieve at this departure. He leaves a wife and three children. His remains were accompanied to Laporte by his family and many friends, on Tuesday last, to the family burying ground. The family desires us to return their sincere thanks to their neighbors and friend for the kindness shown them during his illness and final dissolution. - From the Niles Mirror, Wednesday Sept 19 1877 page 3 - contributed to this site by:  Loomis obits contributed by: Karyl Hubbard  at -
