WWII GO Burial Location Unknown
I found some more for you today. One of the names on the list is not your memorial page so you might want to check your VC from the letter S through W to see if any cemetery names appear.

I found the cemetery in which he is interred. Sent you the information.

I also sent links to his parents. I have linked him to his spouse and his two sons.

Another one off your list.

RE: Henry R. McKenzie
I always run out of photo requests. Just pick any that you are interest at in the USMA Post Cemetery. It is easier for the volunteer photographers to upload photos through the photo request system.

I saw your photo request for Richard Bates. Unfortunately, the photo volunteers aren't able to request the location of any of the graves. Only you can get that information. Just call the Mountain View Cemetery at: 510-658-2588. And be sure to edit your photo request with the location. Otherwise, you'll be waiting forever for that photo.

RE: West Point photo requests
Glad I can help. When there is more than one name on the marker, I do try and check to see if I can find other names on find a grave. Sometimes I can and other times I cannot. If there's a link already to the spouse, parent, or child I have no problem adding picture. I've come across some names that when I search no results come up yet someone will give me their memorial number later on. Not sure if it's because I'm using my phone to search or I'm entering too little or too much info in search and that's why I'm not showing any results. I'm more than happy to add the pics to all names I can find.

Edit will be declined:
Birth Date:

You sent an edit for the son's date of birth to the father's memorial page. Here is the son with the 1898 year of birth:

OK - fresh air.

RE: Gen Jen Doe
Thanks for the kind words about quality of work and respect. I appreciate your taking the time to write them.

I used the database for the first go around on your burial unknowns. Now, I have started working through I hit the jackpot the first one I looked for. Will work on the others as time is available.

Your lawn maintenance business is a great idea as well as being great exercise.

RE: Gen Jen Doe
Short answer - I look at value added for the order of the stones, which is a very personal opinion.

Added by SLGMSD on Jul 07, 2015 8:05 PM

RE: Gen Jen Doe
My opinion varies. This is lengthy so bear with me.

Personally I like to see the photo of the person first. This is due to the order of the page. When one clicks on a page the first header on the page to "pop out" is the name.

In some cases the photos are not of great quality being copied from newspapers, etc.

Now, what does one care about the most - how the person looks or how their stone looks - keeping in mind many stones are old and deteriorated.

It is easy to scroll down to see the photo of the stone. At USMA many of the stones are "modern" like that of General Doe and lists all of his honors after the dates of birth/death, which could be considered of more importance from a biographical standpoint.

In my opinion it is up to the contributor of the memorial page in what order the photos should be.

So, I suggest you look at the overall appearance of the memorial page and decide based upon the quality of the photos that have been added to the memorial page by you and other contributors.

Thanks for asking my opinion. I know I have not given you a definitive answer. For that I apologize, but the order of the photos is the personal opinion of the contributor.

I have been asked to move the photo of the plot with a stone with only the name of the spouse to the top slot and move the photos of the person to the bottom slots. I usually decline because what does a photo of the grassy plot add to the page - the photo of the person adds more than just a grassy plot.

Luckily, most military cemetery plots have stones so this is not such a dilemma.

Find A Grave Memorial# 131032657

I have rewritten his bio - let me know if you have any corrections.

Edit declined due to the fact that I usually go through the photos first and make corrections. So at the same time you made the edit (while you were going through the photos) I was adding information from the photos that Sparkle took.

Your edit is:
Section 3 Row A Crematorium BR

My addition was:
Columbarium, Section III, Row A, Bottom Right.

I prefer the word Columbarium vs. Crematorium. I also prefer Roman numerals such as III vs. 3.

Thanks for all of your help. FYI - I am using a second database resource to see if I can find the cemeteries for your burial unknowns.

RE: Clarence Danielson photo
When a contributor requests a photo at USMA I always request one for the spouse or children interred at the post cemetery. Sometimes the stone is not shared or for the older interments there is a family plot with more than one stone. It appears to be easier for the volunteer photographers to work from the photo request list as many times there are more than 100 photo requests.

JuliaG is very responsive about posting shared stones when I don't have any photo requests left.
