Saint James, Porcupine vs Saint James, Cannonball

You sent an e-mail telling me that I had three memorials in the wrong cemetery. Both cemeteries are called Saint James in Sioux County, ND. Have you been to the Porcupine Saint James Cemetery? Or are you just going by the names of the towns in the memorials.

The number of Find a Grave cemeteries in Sioux County has jumped substantially in the last while and I'm wondering if some of the cemeteries are known by different names - for instance where my grandparents are buried has a Find A Grave name which is NOT a name the cemetery is known as locally. The same cemetery is also known locally by two different names so all in all there are three names for one cemetery.

Anyway, just wondering!

Best wishes,
High Plains :)

Vietnam memorials

Thank You Sir for your Service, and also for honoring all you have through find a grave and beyond!

I am most humbled and grateful!

Also, I found you as you left flowers for my cousin, James Ahrens from Wisconsin, THANK YOU,

We have a grandma, God Bless her, 100 years young! And, honestly, to this day recalls the family receiving the news of when James was killed in Vietnam! She is a treasure, and to have a memory, like she does, is beyond incredible!

But, mainly wanted to thank you for everything !

God Bless You and all who served, forever,

RE: PFC Kermit La Belle
Victor, it was more than an honor to visit PFC Kermit Labelle's grave. My husband retried from the Air Force and served in Vietnam just before we were married. Fortunately my veteran came home unharmed and it gave us the opportunity to raise a family over the past 44 years.
Words mean so little but thanks for recognizing PFC La Belles service to his country and also more than thanks to you for your service !!!!

I sent it in to see if the other one was moved. I did not see it when I added mine. The other one has a very large amount of burial unknown. I check everyone before I add. So many think they can move their unknown and it is ok.

This burial has been placed in the White Hopeful church of Burke County Georgia. The proper burial should be Hopeful Baptist church, African American. I have a memorial there for this person but will gladly remove it upon changing this person to the correct cemetery.

Victor, I thought you might find this interesting. You have the entry for Robert Paul Wyatt. He was one of 39 sets of brothers to have been lost in Vietnam. His brother was Phillip Wyatt and is at the same cemetery.
