BY THIS POINT, I HAVE POSTED APPROXIMATELY 1,500 PORTRAITS OF MILITARY AND HISTORICAL PERSONS. I SPENT MANY HOURS AND SOME COST (FOR COPYING) TO DO SO, WHICH I WAS GLAD TO DO. HOWEVER, I HAVE NOTICED THAT MANY OF MY PORTRAITS HAVE BEEN MOVED BELOW (BEHIND) THE FRONT PAGES, AND ANOTHER PORTRAIT PLACED ON THE FRONT PAGES. THESE WERE LATER POSTED BY THE PERSONS WHO ORIGINALLY MADE THE MEMORIALS, OR WERE POSTED BY SOMEONE ELSE, BUT THE PERSONS WHO MADE THE MEMORIALS LOCATED THE OTHER USER'S PORTRAIT ON THE FRONT PAGE, AND MOVED MINE BELOW THE FRONT PAGE. IF ANY PERSON WHO MADE A MEMORIAL, WHO WOULD LIKE ME TO COMPLETELY REMOVE MY PORTRAITS, JUST LET ME KNOW, AND I WILL DO SO. (I AM NOT SURE IF I WILL BOTHER POSTING ANYMORE PORTRAITS, AS SO MANY PEOPLE PREFER OTHERS, AFTER THEY SEE MY PORTRAITS AND POST A DIFFERENT PORTRAIT OF THE SUBJECT.)
Leon Basile suffered a left carotid dissection, causing a permanent cognitive disability and aphasia.

|Feliciana||Wm Jerome Willingham|
Thank you so very much for the beautiful Memorial for William Jerome Willingham! I would like to share them at our upcoming Reunion in Ky. He is my cousin's gg grandfather. By any (crossed fingers) chance, do you know the names of the other Veterans in the group picture. Blessings, Feliciana

|Jane Power||Eleanor Stacey Duncan|
Leon, you posted a lovely picture from an autograph book of Eleanor Stacey Duncan. Eleanor was the sister of my ggg-grandmother Lucy Stacey. I don't have a photograph of Lucy, so I love seeing the picture of Eleanor and hope their is a family resemblance. Would it be possible to post it to Eleanor on Ancestry, or could you possibly send me a copy of it.
Thank you so much,
|Paul Brimer||Gen. M.D. Vance|
I have a photo of Gen. Vance that was sent to me by the University of Arkansas. His uniform is on display there.
Also, on the Gettysburg memorial web site is a movie of Gen. Vance at the dedication of the Civil War memorial, shaking hands with other soldiers and President Roosevelt.
He is my 2 times great uncle on my Mothers side (Vance). I have very little information about him other than what you have provided.
If you wish the photo that I have of him, please contact me: firstname.lastname@example.org
|Elida Faye Tirey||Thank you|
Thank you for all of your great work.

|John Ival Blair||William Batchelder Greene|
I very much appreciate the work you have done and owe to you my only copy of the military portrait of Rev. Greene. My only purpose in adding a portrait of him as an older man was to draw attention to the important work he did following his military career. Greene's entire life deserves remembrance. He was a brave soldier, a caring minister, and a brilliant economist (although his theories are to this day not followed).
|Jim Wile||RE: Profile Pictures|
Thanks so much. I read a little frustration in your bio but you can be assured that your work is appreciated!

I'm impressed with your pictures.
May I copy your picture of Benjamin Franklin Eshleman to my Genealogical tree?
Thanks for your consideration. Jim

You may have had this question/comment before, but I just read the bio for Kady Brownell and it states her father was Col. George Southwell. This designation is also sited on the North Burial Ground website where Kady is buried with her husband by — C. Morgan Grefe Ph.D, Executive Director, Rhode Island Historical Society.

i am wondering if there are any restrictions that you know of on the foto of frank vanderlip which you reproduce from leslie's weekly in 1898. i would like to use this photo in a book to be published this fall.
thank you very much
|Lisa Dodd||Hi cousin|
I know very little of my family history on both sides of my tree so it is of great honor to introduce myself as a cousin. I am William Henry Dodd's daughter Lisa DeAnnna Dodd. I just began this quest to discover who I am and where I came from a few days ago after conversations with my father. All of my grandparents passed before I could get to know who they were on both sides of my tree so it has always been a lingering question. Any information that you can give to me will be a cherished gift. Please feel free to call me at 901 598 4669. Thank you.
