RE: Laubach
I'm not related. The corrections come from mainly their death certificates and some from censuses.

RE: Michael Criswell
You are welcome. You are free to use the photo. You do not have to cite me. It is a pleasure to take pictures for others because many have done the same for me.

RE: John Clare at Woodlawn
Well I hope when this one stone gets "righted" it will give us more information. I will keep you informed.

The secretary and I have been doing some snooping. Would you happen to know the name of the wife? The reason I ask is because there is a discrepancy of what the last name is in the transcriptions of the hand written burial ledger for both this person and a wife. The stones there for them just say Mother and Father so that was no help. Both were in their 80's if I recall when they died. Any more detail you can give will help us solve the problem. Thanks

RE: Thomas Darnell
Sgt. Darnell died during the Meuse-Argonne Offensive, which took place on a broad front roughly between St. Menehould on the west and Verdun on the east. According to his interment record I found online, he was originally buried in the American Cemetery at Romagne-sous-Montfaucon, Departement of the Meuse, Lorraine Region, and then his remains were brought home in 1921.

I have an idea where the 356th Infantry Regiment was operating (see, but without knowing whether he was killed in action or died of wounds or disease in hospital, I can't pinpoint the specific location more exactly than to say, broadly, he was in the Meuse Department when he died.

Hope this helps.

RE: Thomas Darnell
Yes, "Europe" was the old designation for Section 18. I don't know when they made the change, but when the original records from Arlington were put online, they used the info from the old handwritten 3x5 cards. Now all the white soldiers from World War I are in Section 18, and the black soldiers (in what used to be called the "Colored" section) are in Section 19. I learned about this when I first went to Arlington to research WWI interments and asked one of the receptionists in the welcome center about locating what I had in my notes as the "Colored" section. She gave me a very funny look and said, very levelly, "We don't _have_ a colored section." (She must have thought I was some kind of racist.) When I asked about someone in the "European" section, her face cleared and she told me about the change. And FWIW, there are a couple of other sections set aside for black veterans who made it home -- Section 25, f'rinstance -- just as Section 19 was set aside for black soldiers who died overseas.

FYI -- a couple of years ago I visited Arlington specifically to photograph all the WWI interments. I've posted the one I took of Sgt. Darnell's marker, but it pushed your portrait of him off the opening view page. You might want to re-arrange the photos so the portrait comes first, followed by whichever of the marker photos you prefer. (And if you'd rather not have mine on there at all, just let me know and I'll remove it.)

Take a look at her memorial now that I have added the info that I found. That should explain it.
I also saw her death certificate.
