I am a retired businessman who enjoys genealogy as a hobby. I find that genealogy and "Find a grave" go hand in hand and its easy to do both at the same time and both are very rewarding.In adding Memorials for those in my family I have added memorials for many non-relatives in hope that it will help others as others have helped me. If I've submitted a relative of yours and you would like it transferred to you, just ask. I live in the Omaha metro area and thats where most of my photos were taken.Researching Bender, Ausdemore,Hittner, German,Ternus, Bockholt, Hatzenbuehler, Kramer, Wickelman and many others. Most of My family came from Germany in the Mid 1800s and settled in the North Eastern Nebraska German farming comunities and spread from there.In my research if I run across a grave of someone in the Military that is Killed in Action they get special attention and i try to find out as much as i can about them and put it on the Memorial. We owe it to these Heros and they should not be forgotten.I authorize anyone to use my photos for any reason."Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you." ~~~Princess Diana|

|Peter Morgan||RE: Clayton Arsenealt|
My pleasure. Originally, I could not find Clayton's gravesite on the Brooklawn website, because I had been using the more common spelling of his last name. Once I realized that was the problem, I was easily able to locate the gravesite.
Next to his marker was another one: Emanuel J Arseneault 4/28/1900-10/19/1953, perhaps his father or even a brother? I took a photo of that marker as well. Please let me know one way or another whether or not you will be creating a findagrave.com memorial for Emanuel.
|Brad Miller||RE: Arthur Bystrom|
Interesting story on this one. When the request for a photo came in, I had a map of where plot 62 was located, and because the memorial indicated no marker, I intended to take a photo of the area. When I got up there, I found 3 markers for Bystrom up against a brushy area, but no Arthur. So I took a photo of the 3 markers. As I was leaving, at the last second I turned around and went to the office to verify the exact location. Their records showed Arthur next to the other 3 Bystroms, so I went back up to take a photo of that specific area. When I got there, the area where Arthur should be was all overgrown with brush and tree limbs. Even standing two feet away you could not see the marker. By chance I moved some of the grass away in preparation for a photo, and a small corner of a marker became visable. After clearing the area, there was the Arthur Bystrom marker. The photo is now visible as I changed the order of the posted photos so that the marker shows first, with the plot photo available behind 'Photos'. The plot photo shows all 4 markers, with Arthur on the far right.

Fae Moore. You are on his site.
|Jessica Adza||RE: Arthur Bystrom|
Yes, it appears that there actually is a gravestone for Arthur. It's the last of the 4 photos. So glad that he is honored, and not forgotten. :)
|Raye Hampton-Fegan||Thank You|
I was looking for something else when I ran across My Great Uncle Fae's site. I would like to Thank You for putting this up on Find A Grave. I would like to link him with his family. I may need your help.

We have been in touch before.
My story about the temporary American GELA Cemetery in Sicily is finished. Over 1,200 young American men and women who had been killed in Sicily in 1943 were buried in this cemetery.
I have put the story, the Roll of Honor, and pictures on a DVD, title for the DVD is "They stayed behind".
|Jessica Adza||Veteran Arthur Bystrom|
Loren, Thank you so much for honoring a fallen soldier and for not only taking a few photos, but also for the other images. He will not be forgotten. Thank you!
