Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a collector and amateur historian of early Space Related articles and Military history focused on the AAF in WWII but covering all branches world wide. I have been active in this field since 1990.

The military history of my family got me started on working my family tree. When I don't have a photo of a member I start looking for there final resting place.

I have always enjoyed helping others in my military research and have also tried to do that in my family history search.


I am not in this for the numbers so I am glad to transfer to family. The whole reason for doing this is for the FAMILY of those at rest, which seems to be forgotten by some members. Maybe they get paid for there numbers? Hah!


I found this poem on fellow member Linda Dukes (46842176) page and really liked it. Linda lists it as Author Unknown. I tweaked it a little so this is my modified version. Thanks for this Linda, I think its great!


Poem for a Genealogist

Your tombstone stands among the rest; neglected and alone….
The name and date are chiseled out; on polished marbled stone….
It reaches out to all who care; it is too late to mourn...
You did not know that I exist; you died before I was born...
Yet each of us shares cells of you; in flesh, in blood, in bone...
Our heart contracts and beats a pulse; entirely not our own…..
Dear ancestor the place you filled; one hundred years ago….
Spreads out among the ones you left; who would have loved you so...
I wonder if you knew someday; that I would find this spot...
And come to visit you this way; though I did know you not.

James Boyd Find A Grave Memorial# 127301589
I talked to the Daniels Family Funeral Services, owner of Sandia Memory Gardens. I found the cemetery marker (BL16, Lot 46D, Sp 1) where James Boyd is registered to have been interred. There is no stone marker laid to indicate his grave. Therefore, I was unable to take a photo.

RE: Steve Heath
Hi there....I can't figure out how to delete the photo so I can do it right....I have been looking for his grave forever! There has been a dispute in the family about where he is buried....Rosemound in Waco or Woodlawn in Rosebud....his death cettificate says he is buried in Rosebud and now you have found him so now my sister and I plan to go travel there and find his grave in person I hope! I didnt know there was another cemetery in Rosebud, all his family are buried at the other two I mentioned ....May I thank you for finding him!! Now I'll go figure out how to delete his pic and make it right I'm sorry I messed it up.....I hope I fixed it

Memorial # 57897342, Mrs. Lettie A. Swisher Sawyer
Mark thank you for creating this memorial. I assume Swisher is meant to be her maiden name. My research determined her maiden name was Lettie A. Beck and she married Joshua Sawyer. I would like to compare notes with you. Are you a descendant of Lettie? Lettie's oldest daughter Mary Addie married Hamilton Dowling. A quick search of Texas Deaths on FamilySearch.org entering only the parents names Father: Joshua Sawyer and Mother: Lettie Beck should put you on to this line. I have spent several years researching this family and I don't dispute a Swisher connection. I would appreciate a response concerning how you determined her maiden name was Swisher. I can add genealogy, family, siblings, children etc to this memorial but only after we compare notes and clear up the swisher issue. Again thanks for your work. I would appreciate a response.

Hi,

It looks like your memorial is a duplicate of #89664975 created in 2012. That memorial shows the last name as Couldy so I sent an edit request to have them correct the name to Gouldy.

Thanks,

Tim
