Bio and Links
Bio Photo Retired law enforcement and military (Marines and Air Force Reserves) currently in a nursing career.
I collect WWI, WWII and Vietnam era uniforms, medals, etc as my main hobby but also dabble in autographs and of course work on the family tree from time to time. Most of the memorials I have created are of family or very good friends. But, I also build memorials or write bio's for veterans who do not have a memorial or bio already built - but should have. I live in Tulsa, OK.

RE: Thanks brother...
OK - I'll be sure to leave his name at the bottom if I use any future ones or add credit.

RE: Thanks brother...
No prob - for the record, didn't find anything on his site that said not to copy photos. In fact, he even states:

"I really want to share these photos and stories without any pursuit of gain or commercial purposes. I have made several photo’s of most grave personally. Of the gravesites of famous or relatively well-known people that we have not yet visited ourselves, I have used from websites on the internet that are dedicated to such historical figures."

Figured he wouldn't object to occasional use on memorials in Find A Grave - oh well *shrug*

Photo requests for St. Pats, Bay City
I was unable to fill these requests because the office lady is very unhelpful about locating graves. She hates a list so I have found it easiest for the individual who is requesting the photo to find out the location. I have an index of existing tombstones that some nice ladies did for the Bay County GENWEB but that's for the old St. Pats where most burials are from the early 1900s. Sorry!

Capt, John D. Cobb (89316403)
Good day Rick, I believe that I found some information. That you may like. First I found out from Mass. enlistments. That he was 22 at the time and was from Dedham, Mass. Which would make his birth about 1840. That he mustered in as Sgt. and rose to the rank of Captain of the 35 Mass. Infantry. Also I found that he filled for a invalid pension in 1913. I was able to find on the Dedham Historical Society. Information about the Cobb Family. Which verifies his date of birth 1840 and his death in 1930. And if I was a betting man the odds that he is buried in Bedham. I hope this helps you. Personally any man or women that wears a uniform should not be lost to history. Have a great day. Chuck
