William Egan Shaw memorial Hello, sorry, didn't find your memorial as I posted another for William Egan Shaw. I came across his grave in St. Paul's cemetery in Hingham, MA. And created memorial ID: 155673413
We should merge these. I am fairly new to this. let me know if you want to take the photos that I have posted, or how you want to proceed. Thanks Paul
I have recently been researching the servicemen and women who were buried at Magdalen Hill Cemetery in Winchester, Hampshire England in WW1. I live in the same road as this cemetery so it has become of great interest to me. During my research I discovered that there were 551 US Service Personnel buried there. In 1920 The Home Office contacted the local council to request their assistance in exhumations of the deceased service personnel. The families of the deceased were consulted and asked for their requests for the final resting place of their loved ones. Many of the Servicemen/women were returned to their families in the US. Some were re-interred in the Brookwood Military Cemetery in Surrey and only 6 remained in Winchester. During the course of my research I came across the following record and thought you might like the information:
Frank Peters, died at Easton Military Hospital in the South Of England. He was 22 yrs old. Buried 14 January 1918. Exhumed 23 April 1920. There is no record of him at Brookwood Cemetery, which would suggest he was returned to his family in the US. The cause of death is not given but I have learnt that many of his fellow servicemen were dying of pneumonia and especially influenza.
This may be the same serviceman in your memorial. I hope this small snippet of information may be of use to you.

James Thomas McMaster Find A Grave Memorial# 139232088. James was in my unit when killed. The date should be 15 Apr 1968. I was his Company Commander. I did not want to correct the record in case he was your family.
