Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm working on my life's goal of visiting 1,000 famous graves in my lifetime (and hopefully more)! You can see who I have visited, who I want to visit, the people that I've wanted to visit the most, and the people I want to visit the most in my virtual cemetery list. I am also working on visiting all of the Presidential Libraries. My avatar is Patrick Swayze's star.

If you need/want to email me, please put Find a Grave (or a variation) OR the name of the person's grave you are emailing about. If it is a non-famous person please also include Find a Grave (or a variation) also in the subject line. Otherwise, it will be deleted as Spam. Also, it is better to email me than to leave a message here. I check my email much more often than the Find a Grave page these days. Thanks!

Question RE: Fred M Sockwell & Mamie Beck Sockwell
You show Fred as father to Frederick E. Sockwell. Do you know if he is also father to Ruth Sockwell Hart? And, is Mamie AKA Mary? Was Fred born in Gloucester County, NJ, to Charles and Clara?

RE: Felix Corsi
You're quite welcome. I was honored to visit your dad, (and your mom). I'm very sorry that they are no longer here, and please accept my condolences to you and your family. Your dad passed away 9 days after my mom. ~~~ And I remember, and miss those penny candy machines too. (loved when they had the tiny little toy charms in them).
Regards, Patty

Cpl James W. Reese
Cpl James W. Reese was a soldier of Company F 26th Infantry Regiment 1th Infantry Division, participating in the invasion of Sicily in July 1943 (operation Husky). He was killed on 5 August 1943. He was buried in the temporary American Cemetery GELA in plot-grave E-52-623, date of burial was 9 August 1943.

After the war his remains were repatriated and buried in a cemetery in the United States.

I am writing a book about the temporary cemetery GELA, and also want to include information and/or picture you posted on the website, of course you will be credited. You will be notified when the book will be finished next year.

If you are related, perhaps you may have information/documentation or his picture, any information is more than welcome

Thank you

Corporal James W. Reese
was checking www.findagrave.com for informtion for soldiers who were killed in July-August 1943 during the invasion and liberation of Sicily.

One of these soldiers killed was Corporal James W. Reese from the 1st Infantry Division. He was killed on 5 August 1943 and buried in the temporary American cemetery GELA in grave E-52-623, date of burial was 9 August 1943.

I intend to write a book about the GELA cemetery and I would like your permission to use the picture you provided for the site.

If you are related do you have additional information, other than mentioned than on the site.
thank you

Dear fellow F.A.G. photo volunteer, thank you so much for your kind reply and explanation. Just yesterday, I had to write a departed's name on a piece of paper and place it with flowers, at the site of the interment, which had no marker. The creator of the memorial on F.A.G. kept bugging me for a picture! I consider myself a liason between the departed's family and Vista Memorial Gardens (where I 'work') I am always diplomatic and polite, and try to accomodate everyone as best I can. Bless you for your explanation. :D

Hello, fellow F.A.G. photo volunteer! I just visited this memorial, but the grave marker photo, which was taken by you, does not match his name. Why?
