Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am an amateur military historian and genealogist. I am interested in researching the burial locations of U.S. military service men and women, particularly at Arlington National Cemetery in Fort Myer, Virginia, and the U.S. Naval Academy Cemetery in Annapolis, Maryland.

I am also researching my family tree, particularly the Shewan family members who originated in Aberdeenshire, Scotland and their descendents throughout the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

My Scots great-grandfather, William J. Shewan (1867 - 1947) and his son, my grandfather, William W. Shewan (1895 - 1973) arrived at Ellis Island on July 2, 1911 and settled in Erie, Pennsylvania.

In addition to my paternal line, I am researching other family lines, including:

* Akre (originally Aakre in Norwegian)
* Clabeaux
* Devincentis
* Mangin/Mangini
* Sauer
* Stormo
* Thaler

Other cemeteries of interest:

* Air Force Academy Cemetery, Colorado Springs, CO
* Barrancas Nat'l Cemetery, Pensacola, FL
* Congressional Cemetery, Washington, DC
* Fort Rosecrans Nat'l Cemetery, San Diego, CA
* Golden Gate Nat'l Cemetery, San Francisco, CA
* Hollywood Cemetery, Richmond, VA
* Oak Hill Cemetery, Washington, DC
* Quantico Nat'l Cemetery, Triangle, VA
* Rock Creek Cemetery, Washington DC
* Soldiers' Nat'l Cemetery, Washington, DC
* West Point Cemetery, West Point, NY

Some of my photo contributions can be seen here.

To all the Find A Grave photo volunteers who have been kind enough to take photos of my family's gravestones at my request over the past year, I thank you most gratefully for your time and effort. With graves throughout the United States, the UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, it would not be feasible for me to visit them all and take my own photos. I am extremely grateful to Find A Grave, and to the photo volunteers, for helping me to research my family.

I give my permission to use any of my photos, providing 1) it is not for commercial use, and 2) attribution is given.

Sorry for the confusion, see # 49253052. The photo of the headstone does not match the memorial.

The photo for Gen Malone does not match his name or dates of birth and death. The headstone photo is of someone named Mahoney. just a friendly FYI.

RE: Shewan Family
Hi Gerald,
We corresponded almost exactly a year ago regarding the Shewan Family. I am descended from a Shewan family in Longside, Aberdeenshire.

As you have noticed I have recently added two Shewan memorials, one at Keith-hall and the other at St Peter's cemetery in Aberdeen. With regard to the latter, there are more Shewans in that cemetery but it is quite large and I still having to finish adding the photos which I have.
