Bio and Links
I always been interested in cemeteries, and family history. My work on my family history started in 1978. I worked most of my life in manufacturing, starting in Production and eventually ending in Quality Assurance. I retired in 2010, after working for 40 years and doing a tour in the United States Air Force, during the Vietnam War. Enjoy checking out cemeteries and working on my family history. On father's side is: Banister, Bracken, Burke, Mappin, Rogers, Williams. On my mother's side there are Peterson, Johnson, Johannesson, Petersdotter, Sill, Swanson, Edwards, Holmes, Schumacher, and Sundlop, just to mention a few. These families are a mixture of Irish and Swedish, which makes for some interesting times. I am a member of the McDonough County Genealogy Society, and was inducted into the "Sons of the Amercian Revolution" in May 2012.

Emma Eldora Van Meter
William Featherstone Blades is my Great Grand Uncle. I have information on his ancestry in England back 4-5 generations but nothing further on Emma (not being my relative except by marriage). They did have 7 known children (Frank (died WWI), Myrtle (Jack Cameron), Leona (Dr David Hankin), James, Wilfred, Bessie (Andrew Campbell),and Mable (Rod Carmichael)). If you want any details on what I have, email me directly at

Lt. Col.

I found the above paragraph on the official history page of the 460th Bombardment Group:

Col. Harold T. Babb
Thank you for your information regarding my uncle, who was my mother's brother. However, he did not retire as a major general and he never served in Turkey. Perhaps there was another Harold Babb. I have changed his bio from "commanding officer" to "deputy commander," as you suggested.

Mary Frances Crosson Kays
My great grandmother was Mary Frances Crosson (mother of Rose Anna Crosson Kays, my grandmother). Mary was born October October 10, 1850 in Morrow Township, Warren County, Ohio and died August 6, 1911 in Oneida, Ontario Township, Knox County, Illinois. Mary is buried next to her husband Charles S. Hood, whom she married December 22, 1880 in the Oneida Cemetery. My grandmother's father was George Washington Kays, but Mary Frances was never married to him.

Please correct your entry to show Mary's husband as Charles S. Hood (1862-1946).

Margaret Green #20187492 in Missouri
Stephen, I am confused by the "EDIT" I just received from you requesting Margaret be linked to her husband Leonard Green. They are already linked and have been for awhile. I did not think that the Find A Grave edit system would even allow an edit for something that was already in the database.
Anyway, thanks for your work on FindaGrave.
