|Bio and Links|
I served in the US Army, Military Police Corps, stationed in Germany, so attention to detail is something that guides me. I am unable to give up or walk away from a task till it is fully accomplished. I'm also an Overseas Army Brat. I have American Revolutionary War, War of 1812, Civil War, Korean War, Vietnam, Cold War, and a nephew who has deployed 4 times now in my family line. "Assist, Protect, Defend" and "Of The Troops, For The Troops" are my motto's|
I really enjoy doing this and the pleasure is all mine. I want to thank those who tell me the back story of the person they are looking for. If you think that there is another angle or view that you would like let me know. I live close to all the cemeteries I photograph and will always be returning for more requests.
I edit all my pictures to obtain a full on top or front view of the marker/stone and adjust the contrast and color when needed to get a true to life picture.
Thank you to all those who have served in our Armed Forces, because our freedoms are not free!
If I have any of your relatives posted and you would like them transferred to you, just let me know and I would be happy to do it!

My father served in the 3rd Bombardment Squadron, 1st Bombardment Group, Chinese-American Composite Wing, 14th Air Force (Flying Tigers), in WWII. I am in the process of compiling a squadron history and ordered the squadron's official Air Force monthly historical reports, mission reports, and special orders to aid in my research. I have found a HUUUUGE amount of information, including the names of more than a hundred men who served over time with my dad. Among them was Frederick C. Libolt. Records show that he was a technical sergeant while serving in China. Recently I was asking my dad (now 92) about men he served with. He said that at one base (which I have discovered was Peishiyi), he remembered that Libolt wrapped wire around his shoes in an effort to increase traction when he had to walk in that deep mud. If any of his family members read this and are willing to share information, please contact me at email@example.com. Margaret Mills Kincannon

Dear Red Dog,
Thanks so much for the photos.

Hi Red Dog, I did not know her. I found her story while looking through your Find A Grave Memorial's and felt compelled to put a flower to show my respect. Our country needs more people like her. We have become very selfish with our freedoms and complacent in our gratitude. Thanks for sharing.

|John Quiring||RE: Henry Pratt Libolt|
Yes, I did. I cleared the Harrison Shinn marker and added a photo showing his date of death. I saw Theodore Shinn's also but did not take a photo. I am close to Aurora and will go back sometime soon and do it especially since I know when the light is best on those markers. If you need any others let me know I will see what I can do. John Q

Josiah Kendall served as a 1st Lieutenant in the Revolutionary War (see DAR.org), and as such, has a Rev. War marker next to his headstone.

The narrative states that James was first married to Margaret Caddock and then in 1906 married to Miss Stevens
Links are for Celestia Phelps and Margaret Stephson
Which are correct?
Thanks for your help

|DR||RE: Chamberlain, James CHAMBERLIN|
Hello Red Dog,
No, I am not related to James Chamberlin, but I was interested in seeing the marker in this cemetery as I am researching another gentleman by the same name, who served in a different state. The picture (first posted by Wellington1, revealed the state of service) proved that this James Chamberlin was not the same individual I am seeking.
I do not believe that this headstone is incorrect, as this James Chamberlin appears to have had two records of service, as follows:
2 Company Minnesota Sharp Shooters
Co E Hatch's Battn. Minnesota Cavalry
Also, if my memory serves correctly, this James Chamberlin also had services records which also reflected the surname Chamberlain (aka).
However, I do know of a huge mistake on a Civil War Soldier's headstone and thereby pose the following question:
Are errant headstones only capable of being remedied by a family member?
The errant headstone in question has the name of an individual whose name does not appear amongst those who served with the regiment engraved upon it, nor has any record been revealed of an individual by the name engraved on the stone appear anywhere in the county in which the stone is located. But, another individual who served with that regiment & had ties to the community in which the stone now stands, and who records show was buried in the same exact cemetery in which the errant stone presently stands, has somehow gone permanently AWOL. This error has left the man who deserved the honor amongst the realm of the unknowns.
Thus any advice you might care to submit on a situation of this nature would be of great interest.
Thank you for your service.
