It seems that the wrong photo got posted to William's memorial.
The photo shown is for Willard D. Gordon b.1958-d.1985. Thanks for correcting.

Hi, Dave!

The new memorial looks nice. This should really help John Everett's family with their research. As both the daughter & mother of US veterans, I'm glad to see that now the right John Buskirk is recognized for his service to our country. Thank you, again, for all that you've done in taking pictures of loved ones in parts of the country that not all of us can easily get to. Take care, Linda :)

John Holtz Buskirk vs. John E. Buskirk
Hi, Dave!

I think that I figured it out. The John Buskirk that you have in Indiana is NOT John Holtz Buskirk.

You found John E. Buskirk, husband of Wanda Curtis Buskirk, who was a US veteran born in Sept 1924, and died Nov 1999 in Delaware County, Indiana. I found his death certificate. His parents are listed as John E. Buskirk & Edith Griesheimer. He was born in Ohio, but in Chillicothe.

John Holtz Buskirk was born March 1914, and died Dec 1999 in Seneca County, Ohio. There are no VA records for him. You know his parents names.

If you look at the picture on Find-a-Grave, it clearly says John E. Buskirk, and that he was in the Air Force.

now... where is John Holtz Buskirk buried is the 64,000 question...?

I think that John E.'s info has to be altered as does John Holtz's.

Someone told me that a genealogist's work is never done...

Take care, Linda :)

RE: John Holtz Buskirk
Thanks, Dave!

This helps a lot. I'll see if I can find that obit somehow, and see if the other Van Buskirk names ring a bell.

Thanks, again. Take care, Linda :)

John Holtz Buskirk

I was just curious what you can tell me about John ending up being buried in Indiana.

Most of our family is from Seneca Cty, Ohio. John lived a high part of his life there & even passed on at a nursing home there. So Indiana seems like "left field", so to speak. I don't know where Rebecca settle. She's the only child, I think.

As far as I know, he & Alice stayed married, so...

anyway... a family member brought this to my attention, so I figured that I'd ask on her behalf. The Buskirk's/Van Buskirk's married into my Pittenger line. John is more of a connection for her, but now I'm so curious.

I do know that he got his Soc Sec card in Calif.

Thank you so much for any guidance that you can give. Also, thank you for taking a picture of his grave marker & sharing it. Linda E. Asaro of NJ

I know that you do this work because you get as much of a kick out of it as I do. But I want to say how much your support means to me. I really do appreciate you taking the time and effort to photograph my great aunts marker.

If there is anything I can do for you in central Florida, just ask. If I can make it happen, it will.

Thank you for locating and photographing both headstones for me. I would like to ask if the tall statue is part of the Minehart plot as well. Thanks again.

Noel & Gladys Crozier
I am related to the Crozier's through my great grandmother. Edith Cadwallader Huddleston Summerfruit. Her brother is Charles Cadwallader. I am trying to establish whether or not Charles' grandaughter, Roseann Crozier ever married and had children. Would love to know if you have any more information on this family. I would be 2nd cousin once removed from Roseann.

Thanks, Sharon Ogzewalla

Grandville cemetery Delaware county Indiana
I'm so sorry. Do you still need help finding the old Grandville cemetery in Delaware County Indiana? I took a few years (like 6) off on my hobby to deal with family stuff. Let me know if you still need help, I'm not sure if I ever replied to your message before I stopped working on cemetery history.

Thank you so much for helping me with a picture of this memorial. The day my crew installed it was long and they didn't get finished until the sun was almost down.

Should you ever need help with photos in Memphis or our surrounding area, please call on me.
