RE: Military Headstones
Thanks, Rich. I will send you link to my father-In-laws when it is engraved and a photo posted (LOL - may take awhile). He was in AFS - WWII and in US Army - Korea. We have had both listed on his stone. He is inturned at Quantico with upright stone.

Military Headstones
Hey, Rich, Do you know of any stones where the American Field Service is designated on a military stone? I've looked and searched and can't find any. We are just wondering how it is usually designated. THANKS! -glenda

I just posted a picture for John C. Liddle, and his wife.

There grave stone was behind a huge monument I couldn't get fit behind. As you can see it is taken at an angle.

I don't have a program to crop the picture from the memory card.
If you don't like it, please delete it.

If couples are together I take them both together. Im going to start a virtual cemetery with spouse of veterans…. So many are not document with there spouse's. Ive come to notice as I photograph the cemeteries.

Spouse's are a strong force of support for these veterans. I growing up with my father in the Navy for 20 years and my own husband for 24 years. Being a spouse of a veteran takes a special person! Not everyone can do it. And, I know this from experience of other veterans spouses.

Well, thats why Im here. The clean up woman ;o) and happy to do so.

Best of luck finding veterans! This is my interest also.

That is such a nice way of saying I made a duplicate - "site hiccup." I deleted the one. Thank you.

Maude McGinnis Toddy Ireland
Hello. Re. your suggested correction for her last name, this is my Great-Grandmother; she was first married to Riley Toddy, then F.Ireland. Is there a better way to list both married names? I want her to be searchable with both. Thank you!

Thank yo for the info about Emmet Mohr. William was married to my great-aunt Myrtle. I won't get to my computer 'till layer today so can't see the message on Ancestry just yet..maybe you said there, but are you related to the Mohrs? I never met William. Aunt Myrtle was married a number of times.

Thank you so much for making this entry!! This was my Uncle, and I knew he served in WWII in the Army Air Corps, but had no idea he was a Sgt. or what years. I have his WWII photo, and some negatives from pix my Dad took during the war that look like his planes. Dad, A.J. Alexa, served in the Navy at Pearl Harbor, and I have his uniforms, all the photos he took there, etc. and no one to leave them to. Perhaps the WWII museum at Eldred, PA. Thanks again for finding Stash for me, perhaps I can post a photo of his stone, and the portrait. Marji

RE: West Side Cemetery
Good advice, Rich. Thanks! I feel much better about having created the duplicates now that I know about the name variation. I've seen quite a few Nickel/Nickle grave markers in our area. The weather has been up and down lately. Only a high of 40 expected for today, but 60+ on Wednesday. Hasn't been a bad winter this year though. I was even able to get out for photos on a balmy day in January...very rare.

Thanks, again!

RE: West Side Cemetery
Oops! Sorry about the duplicates. I'm usually more vigilant than that. My only is excuse is that I was still recovering from chemo. If anyone ever tells you they have "chemo fog", its a real thing. I've come across several things I did during that time and wonder what the heck I was I thinking. I'll delete the duplicates and post the photos on the original memorials. My apologies, again.

RE: Joseph Malone photo
Glad to help. I will mention that I think I saw a "Malanowski" not too far from the Malone's. I'm not positive but, I will check if you'd like next time I go by there.

Thank you every so much for adding the message on Kevin John Bonner (1962-2015), part of the "Taphophile Duo" father-son Find-A-Grave volunteers. Kevin was so helpful to anyone that needed help. Since his passing, I believe that the "Taphophile Duo" is retired, but I do hope not. There have been no updates or responses. Kevin left a great legacy!

Thank you so very much for the education on the name change of the cemetery and for the transfer of memorial 131980377 for Martha A. Pyle Tabor.

I really appreciate your assistance.

North East Cemetery, North East, Erie County
Pennsylvania, USA was it in 1920 known as Oak Ridge Cemetery. I have a death certificate for Martha A. Pyle Tabor in my family tree. It lists Oak Ridge as the burial place. I can not find a Oak Ridge Cemetery in North East, Erie County, Pennsylvania.

Rec'd your message. Am presently having some troubles with my computer. I will look into your request to make sure of where he is exactly buried. My information states Calvary; however.....! Thank you.

RE: Obits
Thanks Rich! Edie mentioned that your not suppose to do it, I asked her also. So I've been adding bits and pieces of it to add to the bio. I like adding ones that have passed because then it's like a puzzle connecting them, which is fun to do :) Saturday is suppose to be a high of 13 in your old stomping grounds :) It's actually been a good winter :)

Have a good one!
