Frederick C. Libolt
My father served in the 3rd Bombardment Squadron, 1st Bombardment Group, Chinese-American Composite Wing, 14th Air Force (Flying Tigers), in WWII. I am in the process of compiling a squadron history and ordered the squadron's official Air Force monthly historical reports, mission reports, and special orders to aid in my research. I have found a HUUUUGE amount of information, including the names of more than a hundred men who served over time with my dad. Among them was Frederick C. Libolt. Records show that he was a technical sergeant while serving in China. Recently I was asking my dad (now 92) about men he served with. He said that at one base (which I have discovered was Peishiyi), he remembered that Libolt wrapped wire around his shoes in an effort to increase traction when he had to walk in that deep mud. If any of his family members read this and are willing to share information, please contact me at kincanon@gte.net. Margaret Mills Kincannon

Hi Red Dog, I did not know her. I found her story while looking through your Find A Grave Memorial's and felt compelled to put a flower to show my respect. Our country needs more people like her. We have become very selfish with our freedoms and complacent in our gratitude. Thanks for sharing.

RE: Henry Pratt Libolt
Yes, I did. I cleared the Harrison Shinn marker and added a photo showing his date of death. I saw Theodore Shinn's also but did not take a photo. I am close to Aurora and will go back sometime soon and do it especially since I know when the light is best on those markers. If you need any others let me know I will see what I can do. John Q

Rev. War marker for Josiah Kendall
Josiah Kendall served as a 1st Lieutenant in the Revolutionary War (see DAR.org), and as such, has a Rev. War marker next to his headstone.

James H Libolt
Hi

The narrative states that James was first married to Margaret Caddock and then in 1906 married to Miss Stevens

Links are for Celestia Phelps and Margaret Stephson

Which are correct?

Thanks for your help

RE: Chamberlain, James CHAMBERLIN
Hello Red Dog,

No, I am not related to James Chamberlin, but I was interested in seeing the marker in this cemetery as I am researching another gentleman by the same name, who served in a different state. The picture (first posted by Wellington1, revealed the state of service) proved that this James Chamberlin was not the same individual I am seeking.

I do not believe that this headstone is incorrect, as this James Chamberlin appears to have had two records of service, as follows:

2 Company Minnesota Sharp Shooters
&
Co E Hatch's Battn. Minnesota Cavalry

Also, if my memory serves correctly, this James Chamberlin also had services records which also reflected the surname Chamberlain (aka).


However, I do know of a huge mistake on a Civil War Soldier's headstone and thereby pose the following question:

Are errant headstones only capable of being remedied by a family member?

The errant headstone in question has the name of an individual whose name does not appear amongst those who served with the regiment engraved upon it, nor has any record been revealed of an individual by the name engraved on the stone appear anywhere in the county in which the stone is located. But, another individual who served with that regiment & had ties to the community in which the stone now stands, and who records show was buried in the same exact cemetery in which the errant stone presently stands, has somehow gone permanently AWOL. This error has left the man who deserved the honor amongst the realm of the unknowns.

Thus any advice you might care to submit on a situation of this nature would be of great interest.

Thank you for your service.

Hey Red Dog, good job and thanks!
We share a similar history without the bloodlines. I too am an Army brat and Soldier now with American family that served in all of her wars and German family that shot at us too. Thanks for your service and Find A Grave efforts. MSG Hall

Thank you so very much for photographing Jame's gravestone. I am researching my family tree and was having difficulty tracking him down. I am in contact with Jame's niece, she is going to really appreciate this. This photo will add so much to Jame's story in my scrapbook. Thank you again!

Thank you so much for the "great" photo. He was in the 58th U. S. Naval Construction Battalion - 58th Seabees - as was my dad. This is in honor to his service during World War II in the South Pacific - Admiralty Islands, Guadalcanal, and the final battle at Okinawa. Thank you...

Capt. Jacob Youngman
Thank you so much for the photos of Jacob's gravestone! His burial state as a Captain was truly eye opening for me. I am going back to add to his Memorial based on your photo. I'm so glad, that between you and I, he has information attached to his Memorial that does him justice for his service. When I first located his Memorial from the Veteran's Association, there was a date of death and I think a date of birth and no other information. I found that unacceptable for someone who had fought for our freedoms. Once again, thank you so much. Would it be okay with you if I used your photos in my ancestry tree attached to Jacob?

I added a memorial for her in the L.A. National Cemetery. I'm not sure that she is buried there.
