RE: Joseph Bloomfield #4820
Thanks for responding - I'm sure you're super busy! Lol - by 1812 Joseph had earned his "desk job". Let me know if you are short of time and want me to write the bio. I appreciate your response.

Joseph served in the 3rd NJ Regiment in the Continental Army with my 4x great-grandfather Timothy Sexton. He was wounded in the Battle of Brandywine. I think your bio makes it sound as if he was a paper-pusher who was never in a real battle and maybe it should be fleshed out a bit to include more details. :) I am inspired by your Civil War Virtual Cemeteries, so I am beginning one for the NJ 3rd Continental Army. Thanks.

RE: Admiral Leroy
My pleasure. I visited Laurel Hill Cemetery for the first time last week. I didn't know that it was your "home base." I would have called and tried to get together with you.

Your email
Russ, I don't know if it is connected in anyway with the software issues mentioned by others, but I tried to send you an email to your Find A Grave address and it keeps coming back. I tried info@findagrave and it seems to have gone through.

On a separate note, I want to call your attention to two ACW Union Surgeons not currently in your VC. Charles McMillan (Memorial #49256987) and William DeLong (Memorial #124420536)

Virus on Findagrave
Are you aware that there is currently malware on Findagrave? There is a Java update that constantly keeps popping up. IT GAVE ME A VIRUS when I clicked to accept it. PLEASE see if you can do something to alleviate this problem

Famous Grave Search
I went to use the Famous Grave search and the name I put in was the last on the list. I put in Bruce Lee and a bunch of other graves came up. Nothing similar.

Sorry for the bad news. Jayne

Just a note to let you know that the place of burial is Oslo Western Civil Cemetery in Oslo, Norway.

Also, the memorial is active for people to make corrections that shouldn't be touching it.

Thanks! Have a great day! Jayne

Findagrave disaster
Russ, the person second down from this message is absolutely correct. I cannot believe the mess that is being made to the memorials. One father, one (wife) mother, and a lot of the children suddenly have double asterisks after their names. Have you any idea about what is going on? Often a man and his wife's names show up twice in the parents' linking area. This started with the new impersonal Edit capability. Is help on the way?
