Bio and Links
Bio Photo My added vs. managed memorials difference is quite large because I manage many memorials transferred to me from an inactive member.

Please do NOT post scanned obituaries and news articles as photos to my memorials as they are not allowed per Findagrave rules. I will ask that they be removed if I find them. Send me the typed information (including source) via the edit tab and I will add it in the bio field where the information belongs.

RE: Memorial# 139427327 & Memorial# 132806112
Thanks BjJ. That gives me peace of mind to know that it is a natural process and not vandalism.

RE: Samuel True #21771793
Thanks for checking, Samuel might be buried in Maine. He died in Springfield, but the body I believe was ship off to Maine.

Memorial# 139427327 & Memorial# 132806112

Thanks so much for the information on how to get the plot locations at Oak Ridge and for the photos of the markers.

I'm a bit concerned about Memorial# 132806112 for Fredrick Peter Baker. Could you tell if the dark stain on the marker was weathering or vandalism?

Thank you for the help, tips, and photos!

Find A Grave Memorial# 161362068
Dear BjJ:

Thank you for your Find A Grave contributions.

Robert Warren Becker researched the family genealogy since 1947. Uncle "Bob" has the Holtje "Hulcher" family history to 1772 and his wife's "Rennick" family history to 1596.

Over Memorial Day weekend, I cleaned fourteen tombstones at Oak Ridge Cemetery with soap, water, and a wash mitt. Subsequently, I took pictures of my family's tombstones with my GPS enabled camera.

I created a Find A Grave memorial for Robert Warren Becker on April 19, 2016, the day Robert died. I thought I expressly up-loaded five pictures to his memorial.

Therefore, I am disappointed that you added a picture of Robert's tombstone to the memorial I created.

John B.

Thank you for taking the time to add the obituaries for Ray & Chloe. They are my wife's Aunt and Uncle, and I did not have this information. Thank you again.

Joshua Treviņo He's actually buried at the Meuse-Argonne American Cemetery in France. His parents (my great-great grandparents) listed him on their own headstone, however.
