For putting up with all the Edits I made in Old Sandyville Cemetery. They should be alot slower now. lol I have pretty much exhausted my information, and added everything I have now. Now I only have to edit occasionally. Its been a pleasure to meet you, and If you need anything from my area, I can help. Not sure if you live around here?
|Margaret Kincannon||Corporal Harold G. Sarver|
Corp. Harold G. Sarver, serial #39850769, born Feb. 9, 1899, served in the 4th Bombardment Squadron, 1st Bombardment Group, Chinese-American Composite Wing, 14th Air Force. The 1st Bomb Group's official Air Force historical report for May 12, 1944, stated that the weather was clear, with sunshine. A Japanese plane had been spotted 40 miles from base, but no alarm was raised because it was reported as a photo plane. A two-plane mission took off at 0100 hours on a sea sweep from southwest to northeast to Hong Kong (off the coast of China, not in the Philippines), led by a Capt. Williams. The wing plane was flown by Lt. L. G. Shepard, a former RAF pilot. Cpl. H. G. Sarver was the crew's tail gunner. Each plane dropped four 500-lb. bombs and then strafed a ship (either a gunboat or a destroyer). On a strafing run, Lt. Shepard either hit the ship's mast or was hit by antiaircraft fire. It exploded in the air and burned.

No hurry and thank you. I spend a lot of time in Old Sandyville Cemetery, so if your looking for someone, maybe I can help. I assume you've been there, right? I appreciate the work you did, and for transferring my relatives to me! It was very nice of you. I am going to try to almost complete the burials in the cemetery. Many of the people buried there are forgotten. In 1936 they built the Damms, and the low land became flood plain. It was too low to build a levee, so they had to move the entire town to high ground.
They rolled the homes up the hill on rollers. And many of the bodies in the Old cemetery were exhumed and taken to the upper cemetery on dry ground, but only if your family could afford to have the bodies moved :(
The cemetery means so much to me. My Uncle and I used to visit it frequently, but hes gone now, killed by drunk driver, so its just me. The stones have been vandalized so many times, I have to pick the fragments off the ground to photo them :( But that allows me to use the sun to shadow the lettering...
Best regards, and I will help anytime...

Thank you for accepting my edits! Your always on the ball, and so nice!
I clicked too quickly and sent a blank message.
I am happy to transfer Mary to you; I'm always happy when a family member finds a relative!
I took pictures in Hope Cemetery while looking for my step-daughter's ancestors. Other than a very few graves of her relatives, I am glad to transfer memorials there. If you have any other relatives in Hope Cemetery, just let me know.

Thank you for pointing that out. I recently received lots of information from a cousin from my Graham line. Rachel is the sister of my 3rd great grandmother, Rebecca Graham. I will delete my memorial and contact the person who has Rachel on another memorial, with the correct information in Illinois. I will see if she wants to include my information. I have her as Rachel Graham Reeder. I like to have accurate information listed. Thanks a lot!

I prefer not to transfer, and this is not a mandatory transfer. I suggest a virtual cemetery for such distant relatives.
