  1. Hello,
    I’m a relative of Norman Zunker. He was my Grandfather’s brother. (Eugene Zunker) of Hartford. I remember my parents (Jim,Judy Zunker ) telling stories of my Great uncle Norman and his flying machines. He crashed at the baseball park near the WB Place tannery. I was wondering if you have any photos or anything of his life. He was laid to rest at the cemetery along Cedar street in Hartord..my family was just there over the weekend and couldn’t find his head stone..I remembered it being along the front row as a teenager. Are there any burial plot records? Thank you….Jeffery F Zunker..715-209-3778
