Pearl - East Cemetery
There were requests for 4 people on Find A Grave and the cemetery could only find records for one of them. A man who wanted two (that the cemetery couldn't find) emailed back and forth yesterday and between the two of us, I now have enough info to go back to a certain section and do a search of my own.
So, I would bet that Pearl is there. If you can give me more info - date of death - anyone who might be buried near her - a section... anything that anyone can come up with - and I will go do a search of my own. I would hate to guess how big that cemetery is - that's why I gave up the first day and asked for help at the office.
Anyway, don't take it down! We will find her!
There is one other public cemetery in Manchester - I think it is St Thomas - down on Broad Street. Also, there is a Catholic Cemetery that is large, but private. If you think she might be there it would be worth a call to them. I know one parish is St Bridget. Someone there would be able to direct you to who you should talk to. If you are pretty certain about East - I am fine with that, too. Any more info would help me a lot. I am new to CT - just moved here from Alaska for my retirement to be near my grandkids~ so I am still finding my way around.

RE: Sgt Frederick Osborne at Hanover
You could ask for transfer of management due to you having the main Links and then you could add the bio to all by copy and pasting the bio. This would allow you to arrange photo order. The memorials will all be yours then. I have put this forward in all of there edits but it may take them some time before the bio's are added. they usually tranfer over and let the person with the research do it.

Hanover Military Cemetery

I noticed you left flowers for Sgt TF Johnston buried in Hannover Military Cemetery in Germany (died 20 feb 1944). Do you have or know of any family connection to him? He was my cousin.

Thank you
I have just received notice of a photo of my Uncle's grave. I wanted to thank you for going out of your way to bring that piece of history and family to me in Canada. Words can't describe the joy my Dad will receive when he finally has the chance to say good-bye to his brother now we know where he is laid to rest. Volunteers like you don't get the praise they deserve often enough. Please know the joy you have given my family.

Thank you.

Hey Bob,

Thanks so much for the photo of L K Jackson's headstone in the Becklingen War Cemetery in Germany. He was the uncle I never had a chance to meet. I hope to get there someday, in person.

Ethel Peterson
Good afternoon, my name is Kina and I volunteered to take the picture of Ethel. I was told she is in Section 5 Lot 415 Space 4. I went to the section and found only a space and no headstone. You can call the office and speak to have an administrator to verify that this is true. Maybe, I went to the wrong area and they can make sure. I will go back, if you need me to.

Their number is 786-380-8972

Alson Knight Memorial
Hi Bob!
You have really done a great job n the Alson and Betsey Knight memorial in Mount Auburn Cemetery. Alson was indeed born in Broome (county) Province Quebec, Canada Jan. 12, 1823.

I hope that you might find time this spring to do a Cutler Family memorial also. It is Lot 6030. Grave Number 7 is Ella Atlanta (Knight) Cutler, wife of Frank Ernest Cutler.

Keep up the good work.

Flying Officer Robert Gorman Rainford
Dear Bob,

May I thank you very much for the photo's of my late Great Uncles grave at Hanover War Cemetery.
Up to a year ago I didn't even know he existed until I found him on the internet.

I also had another Great Uncle who was shot down over Norway, This fact all my remaining family members know about, but as for Robert Gorman Rainford, they have no knowledge of his death.

I found an article about Robert and thought you might find it interesting, Check Link:

I'm sure now that Robert's brave exploits with 75(nz)squadron will be there for all to see.

Many thanks once again.

RE: Hegman
The family would really prefer the younger and much better photo of them when they first arrived in the US.. If I send it could you please remove the old one and post this for us.. I am not good at doing these things and you are..
Many thanks,
