Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in North Georgia and have been doing family genealogy for 15 years. My family is from Pennsylvania and my wife's family is from Georgia. I know how hard it is to find information when you are so far away so I like to help our any way I can. By doing grave memorials I hope I can help someone find their relatives.

RE: Tom R. Hopper #156942494
My info came from the U.S. Veterans Gravesites, ca.1775-2006 where they list Tom R Hopper's burial location as:
Name: Tom R Hopper
Service Info.: SGT US ARMY KOREA
Birth Date: 16 Nov 1930
Death Date: 13 Sep 2002
Cemetery: Union Memory Gardens
Cemetery Address: Blairsville, GA 30512
and the other info came from the U.S., Social Security Applications and Claims Index, 1936-2007
which lists his parent names:

Birth Date: 16 Nov 1930
Birth Place: Jackson, North Carolina
Father Name: Semer N Hopper
Mother Name: Margie M Mitchell

I do realize that the SSDeath Index lists his birth year as 1931 - I chose to use 1930 but that is typical of records being off by a year.

Bob, Thank you so much. I didn't post her photograph but had seen the mistake and have ask Leon to re-post it as picture of a person. I have a friend on Find A Grave that lives near Arlington that does beautiful headstone photographs for me that will take care of that after her burial. Thank you for your service and Welcome Home.

Michael Orechovsky
Bob, Michael is my grandfather. Per his death certificate, he died on May 30, 1919 from acute tuberculosis. His parents were Joseph Orechovsky and Mary Mudrik both from Austria. He was a coal mine laborer. My dad Joseph was only 1 year old when his father died. Michael is buried at St Peter & Paul, Duryea Pa on August 1, 1919.

I have been searching for the grave of Michaels Father, Joseph 11/7/1870-5/4/1907. Research has him also in St P&P Duryea, but no headstone exists. Joseph was a Polish laborer killed outside the Jermyn #1 colliery in Old Forge Pa by a mine car at the rock dump. His name was spelled wrong in the Pa State Miners Archive as Orechkesky. Can u help?
