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.

Technical Sergeant Leo M. Cawdrey
Technical Sergeant Leo M. Cawdrey was lost on D-Day of the invasion of Sicily: 10 July 1943. His body was never accounted for and his name is inscribed on the Wall of Missing of the Carthage Cemetery in Tunis, North Africa.

I have just finished (10 July 2015) the project "They stayed behind", the story of the temporary American GELA Cemetery on Sicily, where over 1,200 men and women have been buried between July 1943 and April 1947. If his remains would have been found, he would probably have been buried at Gela.

It is available on DVD. I have added a chapter "missing in action". You took a picture of the Wall of Missing or of his cenotaph or added a newspaperclipping and I would like to ask your permission to use the picture you took on my DVD. Of course you will be credited

thank you

Amandus Rowe

Here is a thought. If you still have the photo of the inscription at Old Huntington, you could add it to the Andersonville memorial for Amandus (#51143052) with a notation that it may well be a cenotaph. That way Amandus is covered in both cemeteries.

Amandus also has a memorial for his headstone at Andersonville National Cemetery, #51143052. The inscription at Old Huntington could very well be a cenotaph. The U.S. Government contends that he is buried at Andersonville National Cemetery.

Thank You
Hi Laura,

Thanks so much for visiting my Dad's grave site at the Gloucester County Veterans Cemetery website. It would mean alot to him knowing you were thinking of him when you wrote a message for his family to cherish.

Another Child
On the Obituary information for William Hamilton Adams, there is a child named Ned Adams, He had a twin brother named Ted Adams who also died as an infant, I have their certificates. Please add his name to the listing of the children of William and his wife Delia Clarise Adams. William and Delia's son Royale Roy Adams is my Grandfather. Of course he died before I was born in 1935 so I never met him.
