RE: Preston E. Bradley
Thank you for accepting the picture. There are also some people who would gripe about that too.

And thank you for your support of my opinions about bullies, etc. It would be nice if everyone could just be happy that their relatives, friends, and acquaintances are being remembered. But then you have some that aren't happy unless they are dictating to other people about something or other.

Hi John, I could not make the connection with Norbert Vaccaro # 941658167. The memorial # did not match. I transferred the memorial to you since I am not related. Sincerely, Linda

Fowler, John H.
John, thanks for the work you do. In doing some historical research, I came across a different date of death for John H. Fowler, MPDC. He actually died on Sunday, 7 Sep 1884. 9 Sep 1884 is the date of a Washington Post newspaper article that describes the circumstances.
Best regards, Anne Clayton

RE: Photos of stones at Arlington National
Copyright isn't the issue -- if fg sets rules, then those are the rules. You're certainly free to download the ANC Locator photos and post them anywhere but on fg, those are the rules. That's why they delete the ones that are being posted from the ANC Locator. It's a shame to waste their time that way simply because folks want to break the rules...

RE: Photos of stones at Arlington National
The fg admins just deleted a number of photos posted on fg from the ANC Locator by another fg contributor. Please delete yours so that we don't have to burden the admins with doing the same for the photos you lifted -- unfair use of their time to have to reinforce rules that are clearly known.

RE: Samuel Carey Hayden
You are correct about the WWI draft signature being Samuel Carey Hayden. The census enumerator did spell the name as Hayden rather than Haydon. I was an enumerator for 2010 and I asked for the correct spelling and also printed each letter in a block. Back in the 1800s and 1900s the exact spelling was not important. Remember that John Paul Jones, the father of our Navy, changed his last name. As a policeman, Samuel Carey Haydon or Hayden could have changed the spelling of his last name to protect his family. I don't know any present day relatives from the Haydon family. I just know that his tombstone that was erected by his family spelled the last name Haydon. Bayne Palmer O'Brien wrote an article about playing with Louise Haydon and Louise Hayden. There were two families in Callao, Virginia with the two different spellings. Louise Haydon was the daughter of Allen J. Haydon. His name was misspelled as Hayden in the census a few times. Thank you for taking the time to research this name.
