RE: George L McDonald 56124930
Carol: Yes he was my uncle, he died before I was born. I lost two uncles in the war and always heard the stories. I also was also a journalist and I live in Alaska where George died.

He was on his way home from being stationed in the Aleutians. A small group of about 16 solders from Fort Rich in Alaska went to Seward to catch the SS Yukon to Seattle. Most of the passengers were civilians. It was a large storm and not far from Seward the steamship ran aground on a rocky cliff. The solders, including my uncle strung ropes to shore and started offloading the crew and passengers to the beach. The waves were crashing on the ship. Through the night, they got everyone off the ship, and right then the ship broke in half and most of the solders were lost into the sea, including uncle George. They were heroes. At day break the rescue ships arrived and rescued the people off the small beach.

(note: my other uncle, Alfred August Schafer was also lost at sea when his sub, the Dorado was accidentally sunk by friendly forces near Cuba, it was never found)

photo request for Ocean View
Ocean View Burial Park, owned by Diginity Memorial, is a privately owned cemetery. Dignity Memorial will not give information to a third party, you must be a relative. They feel that they could be sued for release of private information. I have the email to prove this!!!!!
If you contact their office (through email) and request their location I would take a photo for you. They would be willing to do a lookup if the request came from a family member. If you cannot figure out your connection, say you are a cousin.
Once you have the location just enter it into the memorial page and it will show on the photo request.
Thank you,

George Hirth
I went to Woodland Cemetery today and could not find George Hirth anywhere. Is there a chance that George's name is George Jacob Hirth? If so then there is a large Stone for him and his wife Catherine. the Birthdate for him is Mar.2,1827 died Apr. 7, 1911. Dates are so close that's why I think it is George Jacob Hirth. Let me know if it is and I will post the stone. Ken Benner

RE: Holman vs Holeman
Hi Carol,
Thank you for the info. The spelling variation like many other names (Gravatts incld) depended on who was was reporting the information and the individual s. Sometimes they took different spellings to stand out. Someimes they took different spellings to hide or start fresh. Whatever the case, its always interesting. You wouldnt have any Gravatts by any chance would you?

Hi Carol,
Regarding memorial #110337313, not sure which info is in conflict with what you have found. Pls let me know and I will recheck my info & sources.

Regarding James Holeman & Sarah Jane Gravatt, there is
An Illinois marriage certificate 1851-1900 which can be found in County Court Records film # 1845384-1845385.

Thanks for your time. You're doing a great job!

RE: McCutcheon @ Poke Run
Just found Bruce's death certificate.

Born: November 1, 1952
Died: November 28, 1953

Mother Harriet
Father Earl

He "aspirated" a foreign object. Mentions modeling clay.

But it says he was buried at Mt Hope Cemetery on Frankstown Road.

I can email a copy of this to you if you'd like.

My email is:

I am going to link him to Earl and Harriet for now but maybe we can learn more... perhaps he was moved.
