Born in Wexford county, Michigan. Retired from Federal Service in '95 after a career in Radar and Broadcasting. Became interested in genealogy after moving to Florida. Recently discovered findagrave and have spent many hours in virtual cemeteries. My wish is to someday have enough time to completely photograph and upload certain cemeteries. Some of the surnames I'm working on are Altman, Zeitz, Irwin, Ketchum, O'Neal, Lewis, Switzer and Bond.
As a military veteran, I've promised myself to post a memorial for all deceased veterans, in my area whose obits list a cemetery. Living in an area with a large military retiree population, means I'm going to be busy! Since I am obviously not related to most of the families for whom I've created a memorial, I would be happy to transfer the ownership to a family member. Just send me an email request.
The image on this page is my G-Grandfather, George Altman, who spent 4 years in the Civil War as a Private with the Ohio 68th Infantry. Members of my family have served in the military during every war we've fought, going all the way back to the Revolutionary War.
RE: Clifton Dafoe Rowland memorial I'm glad that you were able to connect it all to-gether. I know who Jeanne's parents are but have been having difficulty finding the correct burial place or would have sent it along also. I did put on some incorrect info. for my own grgrandfather & it became a bit of a problem to get it straightened out. I am a bit hesitant on adding anything that I cannot be reasonably sure of so am glad this all worked out. I hope it will help someone else one day. Thanks, Ron.
Olin Blocker mem #156212170 Can you please transfer this memorial to me. Olin is my Grandfather. I came here to create his memorial but decided to do a search just in case and found you had already created it. This is kind of upsetting seeing as how he isn't even buried yet.
