RE: Donald Paul Stewart-DD 1963
Thank you Bonnie for the information. I have seen his name in bronze at Sacramento and engraved in stone in Washington, DC. There are far too many names on memorials like these around our country.

I have notified Find A Grave. They will have to remove it.

I tried.

I have a photo I took today of Arthur Hamilton's headstone, but I cannot add as there are already 5 photos. If there is one you feel can be deleted I will certainly add the headstone photo. Let me know if you want the photo added, please and thanks.

RE: William Wrigley III.
Look at the following link. This has a picture of the proper William Wrigley. Sorry to be a pain but he was a wonderful business man and very good to his employees. I want to see him get the honors he deserves.

William Wrigley, III
The photo is incorrect. The photo is a picture of William Wrigley Jr., the founder of the Wrigley company. This memorial is for his grandson. By the way, this memorial is for William Wrigley. He was not known as "III". The founder was William Wrigley Jr.. His son was Philip K. Wrigley. His son was William Wrigley (the person for this particular memorial). His son is known as William "Beau" Wrigley Jr. and he is still alive.

James Brent McCants
I submitted his bio 4 years prior to the other one. Plus enclosed more info or details. I did enclose his cemetery he's buried at. Thank You.

I was not trying to upset you. I just felt that our purpose is to be accurate and I felt the grave photo and fact that someone as sponsored Memorial# 53544507 is a great tribute to Officer McCants and the ultimate sacrifice he paid that night.

* Memorial# 53544507 is Sponsored and has a Grave photo!
* Memorial# 18651790 is yours No grave photo just pictures. I have submitted an edit to the BIO if that helps.

Please do what you feel is right

Sorry for the trouble!
