Richardson's in Straley Cemetery Mr. Durham, Thank you so kindly for transferring the memorials for Ben and Joe Richardson to me. I spent about 3 hours in Straley Cemetery yesterday (Saturday) afternoon cleaning up graves and planting flowers -- a very relaxing time for me. Would you consider also transferring the memorials of John Lemuel Richardson (# 46570324) and Lola Ida Mae Thompson Richardson (# 46576244). Again, my user number is 46610158. Thank you very much in advance.
New (2015) developments on the burial locale for my uncle, Chester M Durham. Recently, US Army records have been declassified and made public, which reveal errors in his current findagrave biography. Please correct his place of birth to Jacinto, Dallas County, AR, as listed in his US Army enlistment records. Also, according to Missing Air Crew Report #11126, the B-17G was hit northeast of ZEITZ, Germany after dropping its bombs on the Brabag Synthetic Oil Plant. Chester M Durham's id tags were recovered in the plane's nose section at its crash site in the Forest Oberholz, near Großpösna, Germany. The Germans buried his remains in the Großpösna Cemetery and reported this location to the US Army in Jan 1945. lorelei1026
Winnie Mae Chambers You have suggested adding an obituary for Winnie Mae but her memorial already has one from another paper. Did you want me add another one? If this is someone related to you would you prefer I transfer this to you?
Birth Location for Chester Mark Durham Hi James, See you are still at tracking all of the Durhams in America. I was wondering where you obtained the information that Chester Mark Durham was born in Haskell County, OK? We previously have communicated about him and I am his niece. Even I, his closest living relative doing genealogy, cannot say with certainty that he was born in Haskell County, OK. Yes, his family did live there in 1910, but my father, his brother, was born in Dallas County, AR, in Jul 1917 and their father registered for the WWI draft in Dallas County, AR, in Sep 1918. So, I really would be interested in knowing the source for this birth location. Janine
