|Renee C Trappe||Daily Herald requesting to use photo|
J. Karl: : Hi, this is Renee Trappe, an editor with the Daily Herald newspaper outside Chicago (and an amateur genealogist). “Barney” Ross lived in Barrington, IL after the war, one of the towns we cover. It’s Barrington’s 150th anniversary and we’re doing stories on interesting people, places and things in Barrington over all those years. One of those is a short piece on George Henry Robertson “Barney” Ross, and I’d love to be able to use the PT109 photo you have posted on his FindAGrave site – the one with the four guys and JFK in the middle. (JFK came to Barrington near the end of his presidential campaign, basically because Barney was there). What I'm looking for is the original photo, and asking if you could email to me at email@example.com. We would credit you for supplying the photo, so if this is OK with you please also give me your name (or how you would like the photo credited. Thanks very much, Renee

I really appreciate your efforts to find this young mans grave. As you may know, his life was senselessly cut short in Savannah,Ga. A crime victim, along with Miss Emily Pickels.I hope his burial can be found .

Looking at the original cemetery memorial for Sarah 1866-1892(memorial# 71724481)at Oak Hill in DC, it looks as though Sarah is listed as Vera on the stone and records in Ferncliff.

It appears you have posted a DC on the wrong memorial. Can you confirm and remove.

George Henry Robertson "Barney" Ross died on July 24, 1983 and his funeral was held at St. Lukes two days later. His ashes were buried in the Memorial Garden here at St. Luke's Episcopal Church in Bathesda, Maryland. Could you add him to that cemetery?

|A Horan||RE: George|
Not so odd to receive SACs or additional info from multiple volunteers for one cemetery -- shows how we watch and care about the memorials created for that cemetery, not such a bad thing! At any rate, we were able to determine that he's not buried where you thought he was and that there are discrepancies between dates/ages. I searched the LDS website for info on him, but came up empty, which is actually the strangest thing -- he had notoriety for awhile, given his connection to JFK, so strange that there's no documentation in SSDI or otherwise on his death/age.

|David McInturff||RE: George|
It's not odd. We're both photo volunteers at ANC, and a photo request recently was submitted, which I made go away, since he's not buried at ANC. A third volunteer called the visitors center and received the same not buried at ANC information.
Obituaries are not always correct, and many times unreliable. Plans change, stuff happens, etc.
I hope you do find something more. We can't find anything about this guy beyond what you have in his bio.

|Dyane||RE: John Wilson|
The discrepancy is the death date. The date on the memorial is July 14th, the transcription of the inscription says "July 11th". The correct date is July 14th.
Death: Jul. 14, 1811
In Memory of
who departed this life
July 11th AD 1811

I did a little research on C.W.Cullins. I believe, the C is really a G, for George and he was born in NJ.
Since you created the page, only you can change it.
I too was disgusted that the stones were thrown off into the hedgerow. I contacted the Tullytown Boro and it took months for an answer. Basically what they said was that they would need family (decendents) permission to move them back. I doubt the decendents gave permission for them to be thrown off to the side! I'm afraid if I do it , I'll be thrown in jail for tampering.
I was also told that buried stones were fixed. I haven't gone back to check but, I doubt that is the case.
Thanks for all your work.

I guess I had a blonde moment and assumed that you would know Rose Hill Cemetery in Kansas City, MO. Click on the link and it will take you right to it. My sincere apologies. Thank you for making the update. Its surprising how many I found that had been moved from Elmwood to Rose Hill Mausoleum. If you're from KC it is on Troost & Gregory. It is a dedicated Jewish cemetery.
