Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a genealogy enthusiast, a Civil War & U.S. military history buff and have always had a fascination with cemeteries. I'm also a USAF veteran of the Persian Gulf War, a second generation hillbilly and recently commissioned as a Kentucky Colonel. Being a career NCO (former USAF Technical Sergeant), I struggle with this. A large bowl of ice cream usually remedies the situation.

My current Find-A-Grave projects are locating graves and updating existing memorials for members of two of my great-great-grandfather's Civil War regiments (23rd Kentucky and 28th Ohio Infantries, both Union). I appreciate all of the cooperation I'm receiving from my fellow gravers!

Most of my memorials are family, but I do enter military veterans and other graves that may catch my eye from time to time. If I have a memorial of a relative or friend of yours, send me a transfer request by way of a SAC. I don't follow FAG's transfer guidelines as if they were the Ten Commandments like some folks do. If you have ever refused to transfer the memorial of a relative or close friend to someone (simply because the guidelines say that "you don't have to") - shame on you. That's just plain mean. What a truly horrible person it takes to be selfish with the memory of someone's deceased friend or loved one.

Wikipedias definition of "guidelines":

A guideline is a statement by which to determine a course of action. A guideline aims to streamline particular processes according to a set routine or sound practice. By definition, following a guideline is never mandatory. Guidelines are not binding and are not enforced..

RE: Marshall photos
Rob,

You are welcome. Her Death Certificate states that she was married to Walter Honetor. I searched and could not find a record of him.--Storres

RE: Jack Boltz
Hi, I'm not really related to Jack Boltz. However, my mother, Vera Cason DeWitt, and Jack were boyfriend and girlfriend when WWII broke out.
Jack joined the Army and went to training in California in early 1943. Vera also Joined the WAC in 1943 and was stationed in Stockton, CA. Jack perished over Europe. I have a number of pictures of Vera and Jack before the war and in the early part of the war. Vera found out about Jack's fate when at Stockton. She later met and married my Dad. Just recently, I found out where Jack was buried through find-a-grave. She had never known where he was buried or even if his body had been found. When I told her, she was very grateful. Vera just recently passed on March 1, 2015 at the age of 96. She had eight children. I posted that photo as a tribute to Jack Boltz and his memory, and grateful for his service. Vera named one of his sons "Jack" in his memory. Thanks, Stephen DeWitt

Thank you
Thank you so much for taking these pictures. It took me a while to find where they were buried, so I am very happy to see these. Thank you again for taking the time to do this. Best regards.

Harding Memorials
Rob,

Thank you for transferring the memorials of Thomas D. (118553206) and Elizabeth (118554502) Harding to my care after I submitted additional information. I am not related to either person, but I ran across their certificates of death and provided the additional information during a search for information on another individual.

Thank you so much for being willing transfer to family members the memorials you create. This is a very generous and thoughtful act.

Since I am not related to these individuals, I am transferring their memorials back to your care in hopes that you will be contacted by one of their relatives. Thanks again for your kindness. D. L.
