RE: Charles Warton Photo
Earl, You're very welcome. I am so happy you and your wife's cousin are able to see his graduation photo from the MAC-OCS in 1943. What an interesting life Charles led.

Memorials in Saratoga and Los Gatos?

I did not see your forum post, but was sending you some edits for a memorial you manage at Madronia Cemetery in Saratoga CA. and I just read the note from someone else in your messages on your bio page.

If you are looking for people to take over some of your memorials, I would be very happy to take over any you have at Madronia Cemetery in Saratoga, CA.

The memorial that brought me to your bio page was

Helen Theresa Collins Moran

I would be happy to care for her, and any others you have at Madronia, or in Los Gatos.

Thank you.

Hi Earl,
I saw your gracious message on the forums; how very kind of you. I don't see any Memorials that I might like to manage at this time.
However, I noticed that you seem to have many veterans among your postings. I wondered if you are aware of this web site?
If not, it might be of interest to you. The site is a little glitchy, but certainly can be handy when it works.
Thanks again for the offer posted in the forums and for your years of work on findagrave. ~ Michele

Dr Mather Cleveland
Thank you for all the work you do for FindaGrave and the richness of your memorials.

I have been reading about singer Jane Froman who was horrifically injured in a 1943 plane crash in Spain during a USO tour...Dr Cleveland saved her leg from amputation and was renown at the time for establishing the first Orthopedic service in a public hospital at St Lukes in the 1930's(where I worked incidentally). I sent photo to the memoril, and a SAC with a brief addition to his biography.

Frank Albe
On your request for parent links for Frank, you listed the memorial number for the mother on both the father & mother link. I did not catch it until I had already hit the approve button. Please resubmit a link for the father and I will approve it. If you would like a transfer, let me know.

LaValley Infant
Hi Earl,

I took photos today in North Newport Cemetery and posted a couple (rather snowy images--likely the last I'll take until spring!) for your memorial for Allen Leonard LaValley (121345279). Despite the snow, the name on the stone is clearly "Leonard Alan." That's a bit of a puzzle and I'm wondering if you have any further information. His NH death certificate--image at Ancestry--is clearly written as "Allen Leonard LaValley," but the switch in name order might explain by the arc over the first and middle names, indicating the death cert. really should be Leonard Allen, but still the spelling of Allen/Alan isn't explained there.

There's another child on that stone also, Arthur Bruce. Would you like to make his memorial or shall I do it? If you know the family, probably better if you do it. You can just grab the photos from the other child's memorial and post them for Arthur too as I probably won't look for photo requests until April or so.

Jane E. Moran - Grove Cemetery
Hi Earl, hope all is well with you and your family. Recently I received a mention from Sharon that she thought you might want a transfer of Jane E. Moran's record and her daughter, Angenettie Saxton, since they are part of the Moran family buried in Grove Cemetery. Find A Grave # is 13503046 for Jane. Let me know if you want me to transfer. Marie

Hannah Abbe Correction

The information that you sent does NOT belong in the inscription area. That area should consist of any verse or saying that is on the monument. The information you sent belongs on individual memorials for those people. Which is where it is entered. Both of them have their own memorial with their name and the dates.
