cwo tony ferrigan help needed
Hello Diggn one up

I see you manage CWO Tony Ferrigans memorial.
Tony was my step grandfather.
I am working on the family history and wondered if you might have any data as to what time period and where Tony served during world war two.
Looking for this information to straighten out some confusion in the data I have been given by family.
I have been given two different time periods from two different family members.
Both Tony and grandma passed long ago thus removing my two best sources on the matter.
Thank you for any help you can give.

RE: Lunaett Hyde Blackett
I do agree the wrong father is put in the bio - it should be Orange Hyde as the father - he was my great great grandfather.

I can't change it though because I do not manage his daughters account (Lunaett Hyde Blackett)

How are you related?

RE: John Johnson
Diggin for one,

I found a short article about a farm for sale by a William T. Johnson that may be of interest:

I also created a memorial for a William H. Johnson based on an obituary I found, and I linked him to his father Amasa. I tried to link his brother Otis to their father Amasa but found that Michael Duffy had an edit pending with BK, who manages the memorial. Perhaps he had proposed the same edit.

Are you any relation to those folks at Rose Ridge?

Peter Newhouse 1886
I did some more research & found the death record for Peter Newhouse who died in 1886, 5 day old son of Jacob & Jennie Newhouse. The problem is, Peter is not listed in the old records correctly. They list him in grave 07 but there are only 6 graves in the lot. Going to try to get back there today to have another look. These two sections T & M are connected & it's a mess section M is L shaped along the North & West sides of section T & there are lots of graves without headstones. As far as I can tell both Peters 1886 & 1895 are in the same grave.

Riverside Cemetery, Kalamazoo online
I just can't stop looking at your photo requests!
Anyway, here is a web page to find the burial plot information for your Riverside Cemetery requests. I've found that there are a number of volunteers in Kalamazoo that will fulfil your requests rather quickly for this particular cemetery - if locations are provided.
Regards, Richard

Burial locations:

RE: Oscar Casteel
You're welcome! I took a look at you photo request list and see that you're also requested in some Hillside Cemetery, Plainwell, MI burials. Therefore, you may be interested to know that they have a document available online that lists burial locations for them as well.
Select "Locate a person" to view their "pdf" document. If you want to update the memorials of interest with the location information, I'd be happy to try and get these for you (or another volunteer).
Best wishes, Richard
