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.

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.

PFC Harry Silverman
Hello Russ -

When I was at Bnai Israel today, I found another veteran (119986074), PFC Harry Silverman, that is on your website but didn't have a headstone photograph. I took one today. I thought I would let you know.

RE: Pvt Harold Marks
I frequently go to Bnai Israel to fulfill photo requests. If there are any other veterans you would like me to photograph, please either submit a picture request or email me directly and I'll add them to my list. I plan on going out Tuesday morning as long as weather permits. Thanks for sharing your website with me. My Guben was a veteran of WWII (#134535685) and my Grandpa was a veteran of the Korean war: (#57774581).

Hello Russ,

Today I chanced upon your entry for Craig, my second cousin once removed. Thank you for adding him to your amazing list of memorials. You do outstanding work.

Saw where you had William Wooters on Find A Grave. Can you help with this:

It's found photo and documents with a military document for William Wooter in it and photos of others.

Hello, Mr. Pickett…..
I wanted to send you a heads-up that I am asking Find-A-Grave to delete 2 memorials (with errors) from the Runyan Cemetery (Piscataway, NJ) and to transfer the flowers, photos and messages to the memorials that you have created, instead! I didn't want you getting blindsided if you see info merged into your memorial.

If you need or want further specific information, feel free to contact me via e-mail, I'd be happy to fill you in!

Enjoy the rest of the evening!

Hi Russ,
Yes my maiden name was Stout. However, I never knew a Donald Stout. Sorry...

John B & Eliza Jones Parker graves "near Kenton, DE"
If you happen to come across graves for John B and Eliza Jones Parker, who are buried "near Kenton, Delaware," please let me know - even if, or especially if, you don't have time to make a memorial for them.
They are the parents of George W Parker, in Bryn Zion Cemetery, for whom you made a memorial, and for which I thank you.
