Capt Lonnie Ray Hoover|
Unites States Marine Corps
I have been researching my family tree for over 30 years. I have over 50,000 relatives in my Ancestry.com tree.
My wife and I have sold our ranch and are now living in an RV. We will be on the road for at least three or four years, I want to visit and photograph all the cemeteries where my relatives are buried. My roots start in Virginia and North Carolina, I am starting there and working my way west.
One of my projects was to HONOR my fellow Veterans who are no longer with us, by photographing the over 20,000 memorials in the Fort Gibson National Cemetery, Ft Gibson, Oklahoma, to date I have taken photos of over 19,000 stones and added most to findagrave, then I went back, added wives and deleted all duplicates.
If I am managing one of your relatives, and they are not in my family tree, contact me and I will transfer it to you, no questions ask. Feel free to use any photo I have posted to Find A Grave, that's why I do this.
I research the family lines of my grandparents, WALSTON, LAWRENCE, WILLIS and HOOVER.

|Charles Bowman||RE: Fort Bliss:|
Would it be possible for you to let me know the other sections at Fort Bliss that you will be working on?
I have a list of about a thousand on my ďto do listĒ, and donít want to duplicate your work.
Pam Worley (Sherlocks Cousin (#47232933) also is very active at Fort Bliss and I will let her know of your plans.

Hi Lonnie! Thanks for taking such a phenominal picture of my father's headstone! I noticed in your bio that you are willing to transfer if the person is not one of your relatives. If Lawrence isn't related to you, I would love to take over. I'm unsure of how the process works. His # is 1194224 at Fort Gibson National Cemetery. Let me know what I need to do. Thanks again for all of your hard work! Karen

While researching my nephew Duane Keith on Ancestry.com, this notice came up on find a grave showing he died 7/1/1956-2/23/2004 in Las Vegas, Nevada and was buried in a Veterans Cemetery.
My nephew was born on the same day in California, lived in Texas and died on this date in Las Vegas, but to our knowledge was never in any service. We lost touch with him after he moved to Texas.
I just wanted to find out if he was on your Family Tree or a relative.
Thank you for your time and photo!

I have completed most of the double alpha sections, also many in all of the other sections.
Section AA and X are recent burials and also fairly small. Sherlocks cousin is doing all the Post sections, they start with a P, PA, PB, PC, etc.
There are many stones not photographed in Sections E, G, I, J, M and O. Those sections are quite large. I have also taken many in those sections but I donít have a way to tell you which ones.
Sorry I canít help you more,
When you go through all the trouble photographing and uploading the cemetery gravestones, it would be advisable to take a pair of clippers with you for those in ground gravestones so you don't have grass masking parts of the gravestone. Also would appreciate that the picture be the entire gravestone and a little border area. It just makes for a better looking picture. Thanks for your work.

Thanks for posting all those photos at SNVMC! You've made my life a whole lot easier! There are still some missing photos that need to be taken, so I just wanted to make sure you are done uploading before I finish them up. I don't want to take photos only to find out that you posted more after I headed out there with a list.
|Ron||Lamar H. Zeigler Family Thanks You!|
Just wanted to express our gratitude to you for taking and posting the photo of my father-in-law's, (Lamar H. Zeigler), headstone at the SNVMC. You're doing great work and we really appreciate it.
