     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.

Andrew A Barna #34904883

I see that left a Memorial flower and note on the Memorial for Maj. Andrew A. Barna, in Arlington National Cemetery. Did you know Major Barna? Your note states that Major Barna lived in Maryland before the war. Why I ask is that my wife is the niece of a Major Andrew Barna that was killed during WWII supposedly in China. I am attempting to find out information on this Major Barna. Can you provide any assistance?

Thanks for your consideration

Just wanted to say you're doing an amazing job! Thank you for your dedication, it's very much appreciated. Pvt. Charles Saunders is my great uncle. He's buried in the Netherlands at the American Cemetery and Memorial. I'm curious to know how you obtained the photo of his marker, did you actually visit the cemetery? Thanks for your time, and for honoring these men!

RE: PFC Neil Warren Peasley
Thanks Russ (I'm a Deacon from Virginia; you can call me Paul).

Your update looks good. I'm not sure Neil died from an illness. The rebellions was going on, he was assigned to the Air Police, he was "killed in the line of duty." Your call.
