Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started using Findagrave for my genealogy research and am now adding the veterans who have passed away from the obituaries in my hometown newspaper.

I am also involved in helping the people in the Netherlands find information about the US soldiers they have adopted who are buried in Margraten Cemetery.

I live in Florida, originally from Pennsville, NJ. My families are Zimmerman, Brandriff, Earl, Harris and Abel all from the Cumberland County area of New Jersey.

RE: Charles Hiram Abel
Hi Laura.

I may be confused about Charles & Pearl's children. I had a Charles Hiram Abel, Jr. as their son, born circa 1923. In looking at the bio on Charles, Sr. I saw Charles William Abel, b. c. 1924 but not a Charles Hiram, Jr. Did they have only one son named Charles? If their son was Charles Hiram Abel, Jr. where does Charles William Abel fit in? Hope this makes more sense!

Thanks, Judi

Hi Laura,

I did not write down what I emailed you about. I should have but forgot to do so. Can you refresh my memory of what I said? Thanks, Judi

William J Russell Beach
Forest View Cemetery, Oregon Mem#41136994
Hello Laura, I know it's been years since you added this beautiful memorial, but could you tell me where the bio information came from? Also, the middle name of Russell? I'm not related to Mr. Beach, but he was father of my gr-grandaunt. I'm trying to find as much info as I can for this grand old gentleman, he's just not received his due honors. Thanks.

Wow, that was fast
Thanks for the prompt transfer, Laura. Figured I'd have to wait a couple days (not seconds!).

My first memorial in Somerset County. I hope it won't be my last, as this is the County that I hope will solve my last & most significant set of mysteries.

Thanks again,

A previous memorial was made for Jack, with similar information. Perhaps the two of you could share photographs.

Thank you for everything you do especially adding my great great grandfather Sergt. John Hutchinson from Cranbury NJ. Now I am able to leave him some flowers on his virtual grave. I'm so appreciative. Linda Hutchinson Hannam
