Bio Updated October 23, 2014

In a nutshell:

• I’m not in this for the numbers. You shouldn’t be either.
• I’ve never uploaded a spreadsheet. I find it too “impersonal”. Don't be offended if you do. This bio is about me, not you.
• For me, fulfilling Photo Requests is my most rewarding part of Find-a-Grave. Don’t be shy, Request Photos!
• Ask for memorial transfers. If they’re not in my family tree, I’ll comply with your request. Even if they are in my tree, if they're not a blood relative, I'll probably transfer them anyway.
• You’re free to use any of my photos for any purpose. There is no need to cite me as source.
• Use the Suggest a Correction (SAC) option whenever possible (or request a transfer). Especially for Names, Dates, Places etc. I’m thanking you now for those suggestions because I’ll probably never have the time to do it after they were originally requested and I’ve processed them.
• Use the “Suggest any other correction or addition” option on the Memorial Edit tab whenever possible for information that cannot be processed via the other available edit tab options (or request a transfer). I’m thanking you in advance for those suggestions now as well. I’ll usually perform them without question and try to cite you as source whenever possible on the memorial but I will likely not leave a note on your bio page to thank you in public. Feel free to not thank me on my bio page too.
• My email address is listed below; please only use it if you feel it necessary.

Thank you all for being unpaid Volunteers/Contributors. We’re all doing a good thing.

I think I'm finally getting the Moyer duplicates taken care of. My father recently passed away and I had to delay working on it. I've got the requests in with FindAGrave and want to thank you for your help in this.

Herbert A. Bailey....

Thanks for the flag and Vet recognition. Wife and I both U.S. Army. Proudly fly the flag every day.

The research on PFC Bailey's WWI unit... (served in the AEF thru Armistice), saw significant combat, France.

His unit, Company D, 103rd Infantry Regiment, 26th Division. (a famous unit!). The PH .... stands for Purple Heart.

p.s. enlisted: 26 Feb 1914.
discharged: (honorable) 28 Apr 1919

engagements: (Major Battles close to Belgium/Luxembourg - infamous).

(St. Mihiel, Apremont, Xivray-Marvoisin, Seicheprey, Bois de Remieres, Bois de Jury, Boucq. Bois Brule (near Apremont),
Seicheprey, Flireyon , Xivray-et-Marvoisin, (moved by train to Meaux), Chateau Thierry, Aisne-Marne campaign, Belleau Wood, Toul,Meuse-Argonne).

During World War I the division spent 210 days in combat, and suffered 1,587 killed in action and 12,077 wounded in action.

Division returned to the United States and was demobilized on 3 May 1919.

Divorced and re-married shortly after return. Possible the marriage was another casualty of the War.

Thank you again for the research, flag, photo, respect. Every headstone tells a story.

Lowell Cemetery - Mass.
I have located the cemetery documents for the sale of the lots in this cemetery. I wanted this find to be where others could utilize the data contained therein. Much too important to overlook.

Location of the documents are at

Plot Info

Hi Rick,

Yes, I could tell this cemetery was huge. It was like pulling teeth to get the plot info, but I accomplished the task. They need to update the cemetery info to include that Lowell Cemetery was referred to as GR 5 up to 1849.

Thanks again,
Mark :)
