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: Harold Force
You're Welcome. Yes, I've done it myself. My great-grandfather was Christian Zimmerman, settling in Minnesota. I have never been able to determine if he arrived with family or by himself. He came from Germany (Duchy of Hesse-Darmstadt), arriving in 1856 and settling in southern MN. He served in the Civil War (Union) and then settled in central MN (Stevens County) where his many off-spring now live. There has been no indication of other relatives that I or other family researchers have found I feel he came to this county by himself, although it would be nice if other relatives could be located. Best Wishes.

Harold Force Memorials
Hello Laura; First, thank you for helping take care of our veteran's memorials. Second, I just happened to notice an incomplete duplicate (you did both of them). Your Find A Grave memorial #104177910 is a duplicate of Find A Grave memorial #104178008. Again, thank you and Best Wishes.

Ivory Ross
Hi Laura,
My name is Steve and I live in Shapleigh ME. You posted a photo of the headstone for Ivory Ross at the Philadelphia National Cemetery. He died of disease in Philadelphia in 1864. We have his family plot back here in ME, along with a couple of stones. Is it possible for you to add your photo to the my local cemetery entry? I am unsure if he is buried there or if he made it home. Thanks...

Col Frank Quinn O'connor
I was at the Will. Nat. Cem. today and noticed a temp marker on a new grave and took a picture of it to see if they had been added to Find A Grave yet and they weren't.
As it turns out it was the wife of Col Frank Quinn O'connor who died here just recently.
Frank's Find A Grave #= 36326050 I made a page for his wife and linked her to him.
I saw that really neat picture you added to his page and thought maybe you might be related and might be interested in knowing his wife has joined him.

Nancy Bauman's memorial
Hi Laura: I was going to enter Mrs. Bauman's memorial, but I always try to do a search before I do.
She went quite far in the military, didn't she?
She's buried in the same cemetery that my brother Benny is buried.
Take care.

Thank you
TSgt Leonard R. Pensack is my grandfather's little brother who was shot down over Germany during WWII at 22 years old. My father is named after him. My grandfather also served and they were both awarded a purple heart. The sons of Polish immigrants turned true American heroes. You left a very kind message on his memorial page and I just want to thank you for that. He is long gone from this world but it's nice to know that he and his sacrifice are not forgotten. You brought a smile to my face and a tear to my eye :') Thank you.
