Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello. Wendy and I live in the Memphis area.

My career in the Marine Corps landed us here. After retiring from the Corps, we settled and are building the next chapter of our lives. Our children and grandchildren remain our first love, but we do have a passion for genealogy and history.

I am an avid military researcher and collector, and Wendy is a member of the Mayflower Society, the Daughters of the American Revolution, and the Daughters of Union Veterans.

In between our full time jobs, we enjoy researching and sharing our discoveries. We have enjoyed the richness and bounty our country has to offer largely due to the work and sacrifice of our ancestors. Thus as a way to honor them, we strive to preserve the history of their journeys. Participating in organizations such as Find A Grave allows us to do just that.

Bruce's family includes the surnames: Doeller, Felthes, Gumtow, Hachman, Hechley, Keis, Koppy, Linz, Paterlick, Probst, Ringloff, Salzl, Schmidt, Streitz, Urban, Wiener.

Wendy's family includes the surnames: Allerton, Burow, Clark, Cushman, Dawson, Dumerce, Eaton, Johnson, Jones, Judkins, Kraft, Miller, Moore, Pearcy, Priest, Rahn, Robideaux (aka Robidoux), Smart, Spencer, Stevens, Stewart, Walker, Weins.

If you have information about any of our families we would love to hear from you. Let's trade stories.

Any photos I post on Find a Grave are intended to be used. Please feel free to use the photos for your personal needs or documentation.

Thank You - Richardson Photos
Hello Bruce & Wendy,

Thank you so much for the beautiful photos of Mark and Hilda Richardson's markers at Memphis National Cemetery.

I'm surprised Hilda has her own marker. At the National Cemetery in San Diego, the wives' of WWI veterans interred with their husbands had their names engraved on the reverse of their husbands' markers. Obviously this was not a hard and fast rule.

I appreciate your photos being large enough to open so I can read the engravings since they are somewhat faint at the small size. Thanks also for also taking the "landscape views", nice to see the grounds and of course to see Hilda's marker next to Mark's.

If you need any photos out here in Los Angeles, please just ask and I'll do my best to get them for you.

RE: Jesse Menary
Thanks for looking Bruce. This is part of a big Civil War project involving middle school students in Oregon. We are helping to recognize and honor those who died in the Civil War for Journey Through Hallowed Ground project. One of my students has Jesse. I will let her know what you discovered.

RE: Martin Potter Memorial...
A Photo of 'Unknown Soldier Hdstn' would be fine...

K L Bonnett who created the Memorial in 2011, also posted the following data - apparently from Union Army military records:
"Died of disease - April 30, 1863, Post Hospital, Helena, Arkansas.
Based on others that died at Helena, buried originally in Helena. Then in 1867 exhumed and moved to the Memphis Nat'l Cemetery.
Many marked as 'Unknowns' due to poor record keeping."

Thank you for your efforts & assistance...
