James C. Gorman pic
Hello Michael, thanks so much for posting the picture of the name on the East Coast Memorial for my Dad's cousin James C. Gorman, who was lost at sea on a B-17. I didn't know his name was there until last week!

RE: Please add one of your photos...
Hi Michael,
I would like one of the complete section of the wall that includes the name of James C. Gorman, the same one you have for William Gonos, but if you have a way of adding a zoomed-in one for James C. Gorman, that would be greatly appreciated also.
The family just discovered that his name was on that wall.
Thanks for your help,

Hi Michael, you took a nice picture of the 'Wall of the Missing' in the Battery in NYC for a William Gonos, Find A Grave Memorial# 84133032.
I just added a photo request for a nearby name on that same wall. Could you please add your photo of the entire section of that wall for Sgt. James Carroll Gorman?: Find A Grave Memorial# 84389860
James Gorman was my Dad's cousin and his name is clearly visible in your photo after zooming in. Thanks for your attention,

RE: Thank you!
Hi again, Michael-- armed with your death date for Margaret ? & knowing the marriage date for John M. Vurgason + Margaret, I was able to find a .pdf document of the newspaper page of their marriage announcement in 1928. So now I have her maiden name: Chapin + her father's name Henry Sterling Chapin. And John's full name was John Manchester Vurgason: quite an elegant name. So thank you so much. In much the same way you photographic volunteers do, I research all lines, even in-laws of in-laws, as these Chapins are in relation to myself. If everyone did this, we would have a much easier time doing our research, as some of us are doing much that is redundant.

Thank you so much again! I am sure all the Vurgason descendants & now the Chapin descendants appreciate your photos & info. very much!

Thank you!
Thank you very much for taking a pic of a different side of the Vurgason obelisk. I don't know who this Margaret C. is but I will work on fitting her into the Vurgason tree. I am not blood-related to them but my Uncle George Vurgason was my fave uncle. I am doing the Vurgason tree as a favor to my cousins & the other Vurgason's. I also love the feeling of including someone who may have otherwise been forgotten.

Thanks very much again! :)
