Bio and Links
Bio Photo      I enter records here on Find A Grave for two reasons: First to help others find the graves of lost family members and second to remember our War Hero's who have "Given Their All" for our country!

A Delawarean by birth, A Soldier & Christian by choice, and a proud American patriot!

" Neglected graves are a shameful thing! "


Some think the reason I put a link to this page on bio’s that I worked on for the below soldiers & sailors is because I want to be noticed. “Not True”. I do it because I want to take responsibility for what I’ve written in case there are questions. Simple as that.

I've completed the following States displaying World War II Soldiers & Sailors who died during the war:

Delawareans Who Gave Their All - WW II

Mainers Who Gave Their All - WW II

Marylanders Who Gave Their All - WW II

New Hampshirites Who Gave Their All - WW II

Vermonters Who Gave Their All - WW II

I'm currently working on the District Of Columbia and the State of New York:

District Of Columbia's Who Gave Their All - WW II

New Yorkers Who Gave Their All - WW II


Not A Word Spoken - None Needed
Support Our Veterans!!


If you'd like me to fix any of the records that I maintain ... please click on the "Edit" button on the top right of the record, click on "Suggest a Correction" ... Enter your note and/or correction and I'll fix them as quickly as possible.

When requesting a transfer use the edit tab on the memorial and follow the below from F-A-G.

From F-A-G

"Explain your relationship in the request! Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc) are not required to be transferred. Keep in mind that the original contributor may also be related to the memorial and may not make the transfer. Bulk surname requests should not be made."


Also note from FAG rules:

"No photos of obituary's are allowed, No bio's in flower sections are allowed. The record added to the right cemetery first may stay and the burial unknown will be deleted regardless of the dates.


     I'm currently working on updating and entered Soldiers and Sailors who "Gave Their All" during World War II. To see more on this project please click on my website below...


     I originally started researching my Family Tree when my oldest son, Chris, came home from school one day and said that they had to write up their family tree as a project. This, of course, led me to many cemeteries and I quickly became interested in them also.

I've always enjoyed history and the two fell together.


     Again, If I've created a record that someone needs deleted (since some families do not want their loved ones on the internet) or that you want me to update please let me know and I'll be glad to update it for you.

RE: Guy/John Carter transfers
Thank you so much for the update (and fast!). I always want to know more than what is on the grave marker.

Also, thank you for your service to our country, sir.

Guy/John Carter transfers
No need to transfer these two back to me, as they are not relatives.

error on listing
find A Grave Memorial# 11236555

this grave listing should have dates of 1858 and 1862, not 1958 and such.

Thanks for all you do!

Eugene Lewis, Memorial #70472751
Eugene Lewis is listed with a middle initial 'J'on one of several lists that I was working from in 2011. However, I've removed it per your request (and the fact that it was on only one,, which was my initial list/source).

I'm going through all of my earlier ship memorials and updating, etc. and am currently working on memorials for SS Coamo. If, for some reason, you are copying instead of referencing, be aware that there will be significant changes to each. It's a long process as there are about 170 and I'm trying to find additional bio info without spending a full day on each-very slow going, often without much success (especially with names such as Eugene Lewis!). Anything you can add will be much appreciated.

I checked out your site - very ambitious, and VERY impressive to say the least!

Hi Russ:

Thanks for the message. I appreciate your efforts in adding Able Seaman Lane to your City of Baltimore Webpage. That's a great Website you have there.
