Dear Kathie,
I came here to Thank You for your visit to Sgt. Manno, Mr. & Mrs. Schuman and Det. Moore, and for the very moving words that you wrote to each of them. But I've come to realize that your own dear father has just passed away, and I would like to offer you, and your entire family my heartfelt condolences on this most profound loss. I am terribly sorry. May the Lord bless all of your with extra strength, peace and comfort at this very sad time. And I would like your dad to know that I thank and appreciate his service to our country during WW II. [My dad was in the Navy and at Pearl Harbor on Dec 7, 1941...yes...another deceased member of the 'Greatest Generation']
I hope your leg is healing as painlessly, speedily and as completely as possible.
God bless you and yours, and condolences to you and yours.

RE: One more thing.....

I hope that your foot heals quickly and that you can put everything you've been through since February in your rear view mirror. I know it must be traumatizing in many ways.

Your father's service is appreciated. I can't even imagine the courage it took for him to get through being shot down as well as fighting for our great country. I have a friend who is over 90 now, but was a flight engineer on a B-24 Liberator at age 16. He was in the Pacific as well and saw lots of action. His quiet courage makes him remarkable, and you'd never know that he is a true hero....until you knew him well enough to ask him about his service. Heroes don't brag, and are frequently reluctant to discuss what they have been through.

Thanks for your sweet words. I imagine that you have healed more than your share of people, too!

RE: Sylvia Suter Shorter
Thank you so much for your kind words. People ask me all the time why I put some much time and effort into Find A Grave, and I tell them about letters like yours. Several years ago I was working in Arkansas and knew my GG grandparents were married in that town so hit the web to search for the grave of my GGG grandparents. Found Find A Grave and was hooked. Started photographing cemeteries in the evening when traveling for work and the would fill my lonely nights in the hotel room with something meaningful by putting in the pictures. It just grew from there. I've got over 20,000 people in my tree and I know the graves of a good 50% of those who have passed. I've even used Find A Grave to find relatives' graves in Europe and been able to visit while working over there! I corrected the parental links for Sylvia...Thanks for catching that one!!!

I see you left a token for James Davidson (1760-1841) and say you are a descendant.

I am in contact with Davidson descendants of John Davidson (1796-1883). If you are interested in knowing more please leave me a message via his memorial page here:

RE: Infant DeBiddle
Hi Kathie, I hope your convalescence is over and you have returned home. We're glad to help, even if it does turn out to be a question mark. I agree the IOOF is an interesting organization and I was not aware of the historical exhibits they have. I will have to check them out soon.

Wishing you continued recovery.

RE: Milas Hamilton Brown
Hi Kathie,

Leona Brown married Louis A. Danker in 1903, and after he died she married John W. Sample in 1952. I believe she is buried in Los Gatos Memorial Park, San Jose, Santa Clara County, California.

Elsie Brown married Delbert Fouch. I am not quite sure where she is buried, but she also died California, and didn't live too far away from Leona for a while there according to the records I have found.

Maybe a connection!!!!!!
I am researching my G-G-Grandmother, Isabelle Brown, who was adopted by her cousins:

Charles and Narcissus (Burkhart) McKinney.

Found your pages...and then I find a message from on this list from "Kim" who listed George Brown from Illinois.

Isabelle's father was a George Brown...who was in the Illinois Infantry in the Civil War and Died soon after she was born in 1895.


Can we talk?

George Fredrick Burkhart
Hi I am a granddaughter x7 of George Fredrick and Maria C Miller. I was reading on their find a grave "George Frederick Burkhart's family, including his parents, brothers and sisters, left Germany, arriving at the port of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on different ships on different dates, as finances permitted. George may have been aboard the slave ship "Sallie", settling in Lancaster, Pennsylvania and then marrying Maria Catharina Miller, a daughter of Irish immigrant Margaret (Wallace) Miller and Thomas Miller. She had been b.Dec 19, 1728 in Washington County, Pensylvania and had 4 brothers. The couple married on Nov 19, 1749 at Lancaster, PA. In 1751" but it also says Maria is the daughter of Christian Miller. Do you happen to have any info to help me?

Thanks so much!

RE: Roy Robert Ballard et al
Hi, Kathy, I have transferred to you the 4 in the Ballard block at the Eugene Pioneer Cemetery. I feel good knowing they are with family.
Thanks for taking them.

Roy Ballard
Kathie, I changed Roy's birthplace from Portland, Washington Co., OR to Portland, Multnomah Co., OR as most of Portland is in Multnomah Co. Do you know for a fact that he was born in Washington Co.? If so, I will change it, or transfer the memorial to you.
Thanks, Dorothy Brandner, EPCA

RE: William Galbreath
Thank you and so very sorry about your car accident and hope you are doing well. I guess I would like to clear up the information as we always strive for accurate infor. Wm Galbreath 1757-1839 of Westmoreland PA and Ashmore IL was only married one time to Phebe Foreman, They were married at the Old Pine Street Presb Church in Philadelphia in 1788. This date is well before the deaths of the other 2 women? So I am thinking someone may have some William Galbreath's mixed up.
Thank you so much. Take care and heal

You left a virtual flower on his memorial due to his war service. However, you left a World War I token. Prentice was born in 1918; he would only have been 5 yrs. old when World War I ended. He served in World War II.

William Galbreath
You had left a message on my 3rd Great Grandfather William Galbreath 1757-1839 that he was a family member and he was "resting with his #3 Wife"

I am curious about this information. He is my ancestor and was only married once to Phebe Foreman. Unless there is information that our family including his son James never knew of.
Thank you
