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 and a second generation hillbilly (Kentucky).

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! I'm also helping to clean up the "Autograver" mess at Spring Grove Cemetery in Cincinnati, Ohio.

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 to someone - 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.

Please feel free to use my grave marker photos for your personal use. ˝

RE: Cambridge American Cemetery and Memorial
If you go here
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=mr&MRid=47912178
you will see the following-it as a blatant lie as it is possible to get.

b. THE CAMBRIDGE AMERICAN WAR CEMETERY : I am now managing some 601 ex-'CWGC/ABMC' memorials; do please be patient as I attempt 'remedial' work on most of them.[I have added countries and US states of birth, some were born well outside the US of A mainland and most importantly, ranks]. It has been a privilege to do this: I now need dates of birth and place names, as well as (in some cases) dates and places of death, so do HELP me please ASAP! Thanks to everyone who has contributed vital personal data so far. Note: I welcome any contribution anyone can make to improve the 601 memorials that I currently manage for Find-a-Grave; it has been a pleasure (albeit) a sad one to review all of them and to make changes. I was surprised that so many lacked requests for images of the gravestones/memorials. I manage all of these 601 memorials at the direct request of Find-a-Grave, to whom any queries should be directed and NOT to me personally. I look forward to hearing from you if you can make any contribution to them: I am especially grateful to Jim Chandler a.k.a. "455th AAA Historian" for the very many useful contributions he has made to Bios. recently, for the 455th AAA.

If you wish, contact my findagrave friend who has been researching at Cambridge for more than forty years-geoffrey.r.gillon@talk21.com

RE: Cambridge American Cemetery and Memorial
Dear Rob,
That is precisely what I wrote to another American contributor a few days ago! And my friend, who has been researching at Cambridge for just over 40 years has used your remarks, anonymously to his contacts, to say how things should be. A couple of weeks ago, there was a card with flowers on a grave from 10 of the casualty’s nieces-they probably have never heard of findagrave, leave alone being aware that they could take over the memorial. It is a stupid rule which is probably simply Ancestry.com making their mark on things- the longer these pages are left with no bio, the less chance these memorials will ever get changed. Once upon a time, Tanya at Findagrave would transfer the memorial to anyone who put forward the slightest suggestion.

Cambridge American Cemetery and Memorial
I just love this part of your personal profile! Have you tried to get Robert Benedict’s memorial transferred to you? [I will probably do the photo request]

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 Find A Grave'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 to someone - 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.
