|Bio and Links|
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.

Thank you, Mark, for the editing of the memorial for Alonzo Draughon. It is greatly appreciated. Larry Draughon.
|Lynda "Runyon-Frum" Moberg||Alvin Barnesfeld|
I just sent in an edit to add the Obituary for Alvin. Sometimes the edits are slow. You might want to check it from time to time. His memorial # is 2957487. Keep up the good work:)
|Charles Pannell||RE: Charles H Hudson, McLennan Co Texas|
I am pretty distantly related, but do you know who has updated the information to include the census data and exact birth and death dates? If that was you, then sure, feel free to transfer to me, but if it was someone else, I'd like to find their contact info.
|Betty Radugge||James and Gracie Orem|
Thank you for getting the beautiful headstone Photo's for Gracie and James Orem, have a blessed day. Betty
|Charles Pannell||Charles H Hudson, McLennan Co Texas|
I'm just curious if you're descended from Charles H Hudson, who died in McLennan Co Texas in 1966 (I notice you're taking care of his memorial). I've got some Hudson ancestry, and I'm pretty sure I'm related to both Charles Hudson (via his father John K rather than Henry Hudson) and also to his wife Ethel Georgia Wallace through my Wallace lineage. The Hudsons and Wallaces (and Dunnahoos) intermarried in the Floyd Co area of Georgia. Anyway, let me know if you want to trade notes and discover more. If you've taken a DNA test, you might also be able to help me push back the envelope for our Hudson line to the 1700s.

You are very welcome. This gives me something to do that I enjoy:) Happy searching.
|Genealogy Love||Thank you|
Thank you for telling "Anonymous" like it is.
Mr or Mrs Anonymous just sits and picks... and picks.... on people here. He or she needs to get a life.
Thank you again Mark!
How can you state you are "not in this for numbers" when you possess/manage a specific burial site that has no useful information. I.E. your info on this site number says:
Specifically: Grave site not yet identified
This is worthless. Would this help you if you were searching for information?

|Debbie J.||RE: Emil Whitney|
Thanks for the info. Also... thanks for the research you are doing for the book. Happy hunting. Debbie J.
