Sorry for not responding sooner. I had a little difficulty, as I have never deleted a photo. I finally figured it out. Take care.

My name is Dinice Ross and I run the Hi Jolly Cemetery in Quartzsite. AZ. You are asking for a photo or information an a Kenneth Wheeler. I do not have a Kenneth Wheeler in the Hi Jolly Cemetery. Good Luck with your search.

Thanks for placing my brother Joey's obit and picture here. He was my youngest sibling, and the first one of us 6 to go. He is remembered and loved.

Thank you for your service and thank you for the work you do for Find A Grave. My aunt's (by marriage) brother was Lt. Col. Kenneth Ambrose Walsh - a fourth ranking US Marine Corps fighter ace in WWII. If I can help you out with any other photos at St. Charles or LINC Farmingdale, let me know.

Thank you for the excellent memorial on Patrick. We never knew the details of his death. I have made Find A Grave memorials for each of his parents. Could you link him to them?

On Amelia Island, FL there is the Nassau County War Memorial listing all that KIA from WWI to present. I have researched each and seen that a Find A Grave memorial for each. I have a virtual cemetery on my profile page with each memorial. I don't manage all of them. Over the years more and more information has been obtained and added as it has been available online or family members have shared. Have a look when you have the time.
Also visit my Daddy's memorial. Thomas H. Davis

"It may be buried or not installed. His father was supplied with a Flat VA Marker."
Some metal markers have been recently stolen from remote cemeteries and sold for their value as metal. This may be the case.
I was asking friends in Baker County to check on the situation and reapply to VA if the marker is missing.
I wanted his Find A Grave memorial to state "No marker" so another member wouldn't request a photographer to attempt a marker photo.
Thanks for the information. That could be added to the memorial also.
There is a Vietnam War Memorial downtown St Augustine. One of the young men whose name is on the memorial is buried in rural Putnam Co and his marker is missing too. All the paper work shows that he was buried in that cemetery with a flat metal marker but his grave is not marked either.
|Bill Haskell||RE: LCpl Timothy L. Gilson|
I always meant to do it and time just got away from me with family and work. Thank you for doing all of the work you did.
