Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a collector and amateur historian of early Space Related articles and Military history focused on the AAF in WWII but covering all branches world wide. I have been active in this field since 1990.

The military history of my family got me started on working my family tree. When I don't have a photo of a member I start looking for there final resting place.

I have always enjoyed helping others in my military research and have also tried to do that in my family history search.


I am not in this for the numbers so I am glad to transfer to family. The whole reason for doing this is for the FAMILY of those at rest, which seems to be forgotten by some members. Maybe they get paid for there numbers? Hah!


I found this poem on fellow member Linda Dukes (46842176) page and really liked it. Linda lists it as Author Unknown. I tweaked it a little so this is my modified version. Thanks for this Linda, I think its great!


Poem for a Genealogist

Your tombstone stands among the rest; neglected and alone….
The name and date are chiseled out; on polished marbled stone….
It reaches out to all who care; it is too late to mourn...
You did not know that I exist; you died before I was born...
Yet each of us shares cells of you; in flesh, in blood, in bone...
Our heart contracts and beats a pulse; entirely not our own…..
Dear ancestor the place you filled; one hundred years ago….
Spreads out among the ones you left; who would have loved you so...
I wonder if you knew someday; that I would find this spot...
And come to visit you this way; though I did know you not.

Hi,

It looks like your memorial is a duplicate of #89664975 created in 2012. That memorial shows the last name as Couldy so I sent an edit request to have them correct the name to Gouldy.

Thanks,

Tim

Ruth Dutton
I see you are a Dutton, so I thought you might help me. I am looking for the grave of Ruth E. Dutton, she was born in 1894, Manhattan, Kansas. She was married to Frank Allen Dutton, thru 1920s, divorced. I found one Ruth but the birth year was 1900. I have searched the US. In 1920 they lived in Nebraska. Are you a relative of Frank? Thank you, Karen

St Adalbert Cemetery-Kloc gravesites
Hi Mark-I filled your request for Leonard and Jane Kloc. There are four family graves there. I posted an overview..of the four stones, the far left is Thaddeus M Kloc(1918-1999) and I posted a picture of his headstone on his memorial page. Thaddeus is buried next to Wanda A Kloc (Aug 6m 1914-Dec 14, 1999). There is no memorial page for her that I could find. I did take a picture of her headstone so if you create a page, let me know and I'll post it...Mary

Kenneth Faulkner photo
Hello, My experience at Floral Hills is that there is a garden/section name associated with a location, such as, Everlasting Life, Last Supper, etc. Do you have one for Kenneth Faulkner? If you do, please add it to the Find A Grave memorial, and I'll try to find the marker and take a photo. Pat

Thanks for applying the edits. She is not a relative, but a relative of a relative, of a relative, etc. Sometimes, while researching your own tree, you find information on someone else and just run with it. And I enjoyed the poem on your page. ~~Carol
