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!

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. Or the request will be ignored.

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."

     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: Lieut Gerard L Roy
Whatever you can find out will be most appreciated. We were never able to establish exactly what happened. One relative said that the plane crashed into a mountain, but that's about all we know.

RE: Lieut Gerard L Roy
Hi Russ, thanks for replying so promptly. My husband was just one year old when Jerry died. The obit we have says he died in a plane crash in Lyon, France on Feb. 7, 1945. I would assume that "in the line of duty" would probably apply. We will do the photo of the grave stone and (attempt) to upload it on the site. I guess it's best to wait until everything is sorted out. Thanks so much for your interest in this. Shirley Levesque

RE: GM1 Leo Orzechowski
Just saw your webpage where you listed my Grandfather. Thank you so much for honoring him in such a special way. I'd also like to take you up on your offer as to managing his Memorial on my page. Not sure how that's done so you'll have to walk me through it. Also how do you request photos of grave markers for folks whose Cemeteries aren't listed. I'm looking for my other Grandfather Alfred A Emmick who was buried at St. Mary's on the Hill in Lancaster. Here's their webpage Thoughts?

Thank you for your time,

Cejae Jones

Hi Russ, the acknowledgement works for me, thanks! I'm going to keep after many of your 'unknown' locations for servicemen from MD.

Ah! Monticello! Maybe it is the Monticello Brotherhood Aid Society.

RE: Pvt Henry Bochner
Most of the headstones in the Jewish cemeteries are upright and very tall! What concerns me is the amount of small round top ones I saw yesterday that simply had no face on them. Like they were so old that a face plate of the slate slid off taking all the info. I dont know who has the records. Do you want to call a local funeral director, or should I try sometime?
