|Thanks to my grandmother, I have always been a graver, starting out at an early age. I have an intense passion for American History, Aviation & Nasa, (Especially of the 60s and 70s). Needless to say I am also a huge sports fan. GO DAWGS!! My graving forte is Arlington National Cemetery, which is in my opinion the greatest history lesson in the United States. There is nothing quite like the atmosphere at ANC. I always cherish my visits there. |

|Mark Swanson||General Theodore Schwan, 1841-1826|
There is additional information about Theodore Schwan. He was born 9 July 1841 and baptized 13 July 1841 in Wulsdorf, then part of the Kingdom of Hannover, now a neighborhood in the city of Bremerhaven, state of Bremen, Germany. His father was the Rev. Georg Heinrich Christian Schwan and his mother was Dorette Schwan, born Polemann. His half-brother was Rev. Heinrich Christian Schwan, 1819-1905, a president of the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod and a pastor in Cleveland, Ohio.
Source: Ancestry.com, specifically -http://person.ancestry.com/tree/84049096/person/42496739797/facts - where the confirming records can be found.
(Grandson of Heinrich Friedrich Julius Schwan of Bremen, Germany)
I have traversed the grounds of ANC over the years while in the MDW off and on since early 1960s; the feeling one consumes while walking those hollowed grounds is beyond words. The most beautiful place in the world. . . . I am wondering in that I were always under the impression that our Constance Bennett Coulter passed away at Fort Dix, NJ, not New York? Have a great day. . . . Leelem.
|David E Craig||Gen. Manning Ferguson Force|
Gen Manning Ferguson Force is in my family tree, 5th cousin 4X removed. Susan Force married Moses Marsh Craig my 3X grandfather. In your research on Gen. Manning F. Force was there any reference to 9 inch dagger/dirk/boot knife? This dagger has been passed down the family and I am trying to put this dagger ca. 1800-1825 in one of my relatives hand. Any additional information about Gen. Force and his personal effect would be a great help to me. Thank you for your time. Blessing, Rev. David E Craig, Retired.

|Nipper||Memorial 1861 William J Brennan Jr|
It says he married twice, but someone added a third wife Celestine Paradis born in 1832 died 1905. This does not make sense.

A memorial designation of famous should not alienate this soldier from the very family you wrote in his Bio was his foremost concerns expressed to president Lincoln .

|Steven Jones||Medal of Honor|
There is no such thing as the Congressional Medal of Honor. It is simply the Medal of Honor. The confusion I believe comes from the fact that it is presented to the recipient by the president on behalf of congress.
Hi, I am in the process of posting the bios of my ggg grandparents David Cumming (95274991) and Janet Wood Cumming (95275280) on their Find-a-Grave sites. Would you kindly connect them to your Kate Cumming (10538942) site? They are her parents and are buried at Magnolia Cemetery not far from Kate. Thank you!

|Lewis Clark||Congressman John Covode of PA|
Do you have any connection to my great-great grandfather, John Covode? There are memorials of my creation for his daughter Emma Covode Blair and his grand-daughter, Margaret Covode Blair Curtis (the latter being my maternal grandmother).
