I am 21 years old, and have been visiting the graves of famous Americans since I was eight. I have seen all thirty-eight U.S. president graves, all forty-one vice president graves, as well as the burial sites of Betsy Ross, Frederick Douglass, Alexander Hamilton, and numerous other people of note. I also have created my own website, entitled Kurt's Historic Sites.
If you visit my website, please sign my guest book.
RE: Beckmans I was curious about the relationship between Virgil and Nils so I did some searching on ancestry.com. Seems Nils was born in Sweden on Mar 2, 1899 and came to the US on Feb 6, 1923. He and Thora appear in the 1930 US Census in Lynn, MA. May just be a coincidence with the last name.
Cosmo Piccoli Thanks for your picture, unfortunately I can't tell if he was a 509PIB, 82nd airborne during the WW2 . I'm pretty certain he is the hero I look after , same name, same Birth year, same state ... If one day you find his obit could you contact me ?
Winfield Jackson Thanks for taking a photo of Winfield Jackson's gravestone at the RI Veterans Cemetery. He was my husband's great uncle and I would have loved to have met him. I am amazed that you have been to the gravesites of every US President and Vice President. That is quite a feat and admirable of you to pay that respect to all the men who have achieved that high office. Thanks for being in the RI Veterans Cemetery on Memorial Day. Susan Fleming
Memory of Robert Theroux Memorial Thank you so much for the picture of my brother's final resting place. His name is Robert Theroux, USA Korea, I just received your wonderful picture and will forward it to my sister-in-law, who will some day in the future join him there. I really appreciate what you and the other volunteers do for folks like me, who have moved far away from what was our birthplace to new and different areas. I, also, had a chance to read your write-up about joining requests on requests. I thought that was what I did in my email, assuming that the person receiving the request would receive a copy of similar info as to what was contained in my request.
You see my memo requested pictures of my two brothers, both of whom are interred within the Rhode Island Veteran's Cemetery, so that one visit would accomplish my wishes.
Mt other brother is Philip Francis Theroux, and his wife, Joan M. Theroux. Phil was a Korean War Vet in the USAF. Born June 22nd., 1933 and died August 22, 2005. Joan was born in 1936 and died last year. If you can please complete this for me I will be thankful to you forever. And perhaps you could explain what I might have done wrong. Thanks. firstname.lastname@example.org Titusville, FL 32780.
