RE: Question
I knew Staff Sergeant Brooks and yes I am aware he was KIA, I was there. SSGT is not the proper abbreviated rank for Staff Sergeant in the Army. SSGT is for the Airforce and Marine Corps ranks. I apologize if I didn't state that before when I declined the update. Until findagrave fixes it, it will remain the same. I've made several requests throughout the years to add more abbreviated ranks to reflect today's military. Only a couple have been added so far.

We are relatives
Robert Embree is my 8th great grandfather. I'm trying to figure out how Caleb Davis's son in New Brunswick came to be named James Embree Davis. The only Embree I can find that might be related to Caleb Davis is James Embree Glean. It's a marvelous puzzle based on a letter from 1833 which I have. Let me know if you would like to be involved in figuring it out and I will send the particulars. Cheers!

McKee again
I just realized that I was still doing the Iowa Gravestone Photo Project for Civil War veterans when we did Humboldt County. You are welcome to use photos of ours from there, too.

RE: McKee 9268880
I have added the photo to her memorial. If you find other photos of ours that include wives, please feel free to use them. Photo credit is appreciated. I think I usually added the photo to the wife if she already had a memorial, but didn't always have the time to add another memorial.

I came across the very nice picture you posted of the Major Fisher - it's such a nice way to honor his service and the medal he was awarded.

Volunteers like you are so thoughtful! I am not related but wanted to let you know your work is appreciated!

RE: Incorrect term
Thank you for the education on Navy ratings and ranks. I generally use the most formal nomenclature - unless there's a reason to deviate from it.

In this case, although I was not privy to the basis for it, I copied the terminology which the Navy used when they initially identified the dead (which most likely would have been put together by people who knew him) - exactly as it is quoted on a memorial site.

I'm guessing that there's some kind of endearing inside joke or story associated with it.

Perhaps a future flower-giver will let us in on it. I'm going to leave my entry as is in hopes of same.

RE: Roger
I appreciate that. I was the HR director for the City of Marshalltown where his wife Shirlee worked as a bus driver many years ago and still occasionally see his daughter-in-law Val.

I remember when Roger and Shirlee had the Standard Oil gas station close to City Hall and Shirlee was working for the City when Roger died.

Thank you for assuming responsibility for Roger's Find A Grave memorial. I believe you will be an awesome caretaker.

Ref Linda Jane Barker
The person who posted the memorial for her brother, James Oscar Barker, has the wrong death date. He died in 1937. I have requested a correction on his memorial. This is my husband's cousin.
Thanks for sending the message so I would know of the mistake.

Unknown Embree/Unadilla Cemetery
This was taken from the old cemetery book (I am one of the sextants). It just says Embree 1896 and the plot number. You are right, there is no tombstone. We have always assumed it was a baby.
