Bio Photo This monument in Northeast cemetery PA says "God Is Love." It is one of my favorites.

I am happy to do this work to help the living, the dead and those to come. Sometimes, though, the pain of the losses people have felt just staggers me.

I am very, very grateful to other volunteers who have put up info that has helped me in my ancestry searchs.

If possible, I would grateful if you could leave a flower at my cousin Lt. Edwin Neely who was killed at Normandy as part of the D - Day invasion so that he is remembered.

Find A Grave Memorial# 56648174

It would be a lot to me. It took me awhile to find him.

(I found out some of the pictures I post turn out upside down on some people's computers but not others. I don't understand it at all so I don't know how to fix it but I think it might be something with the IPhone I don't understand.

Write me if something is wrong!)

E, have you done any research on
I have found your tree, and added a lot of information from your Find A Grave memorials. It is a free sight, you should take a look.

You sent me an edit for this memorial concerning his sister. I'm not sure what you wanted me to do with the info. Any chance you know the names and/or locations of their parents?

Edwin J. Neely

I am the oldest son of John Maxwell Neely, Edwin's older brother. If you were Ed's cousin, and my father's, then you are my first cousin, once removed!

Thank you for finding so much information on his death. Two things I note, though. Edwin was 22 at the time of his death, not 24. Also, you say the government paid for his mother to visit his grave, but I don't believe that occurred. I remember her getting a picture of the headstone, but I don't think she ever visited the grave.

I believe that we have a picture of Uncle Ed in the photos that have been scanned, and I will see if I can locate it.

I also see that you have others in Pittsburgh, but let me know if you need anything here. My daughter lives in Bloomfield, close to St Mary's and Allegheny Cemeteries (and close to the S. Mathilda St. address where Ed lived in his high school years).

Thanks again,

RE: oops here is the link
Thank you - I had already looked up an article about the incident. Very interesting, but still leaves a lot of questions unanswered. I vaguely remember reading about this in the PLU news - I was 19 at the time...Thank you.

RE: Dyatlov Pass
Thank you for telling me of the young people who died tragically while hiking. I retired from hiking when I was age 60, but there are always dangers, especially in the mountains - the weather itself is a constant threat. I was 19 when they died. And as most young people then, we felt we had a wonderful life ahead of us, but we really don't know what the future has in store for us.

All my grandparents came from Kolb (Peskovatka), Russia, and Katharinenstadt was south of there. Beginning 1876-1913 many Germans along the Volga River fled Russia for America and South America - literally being hunted down by the Bolsheviks. My family related many horror stories, and because of Stalin, many died in slave-labor camps in Siberia.

Thank you, again, for taking the time to tell me of these young people...

Lt. Edwin J. Neeley
I too have a very dear family friend who was critically wounded at Normandy - #56353889. My father survived Guadalcanal and Okinawa - he was a Seabbee - the death of Paul Jueling was heartbreaking to an entire German community where his father was pastor. Your memorial is a beautiful tribute...

These siblings are now linked with their parents and each other.

I have submitted the edit requests that will result in these two sisters being linked via their parents. They may take a week or so to be processed. Thank you
