Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello! I have been working on my family genealogy/history for a number of years (!!) and would like to thank all those who have made contributions to Find A Grave....I finally got around to making contributions, at first involving mostly my 'immediate' family (450 memorials by now), but now mostly non-family.

Paternal ancestor surnames include: Wesley, Taylor, Randolph, Wilson, Huff, Craig, Smiley, Higgins, Pierce, Simpson, Goodall, Campbell, Carson, Downing, Minor, Ford, Aiken, Hampton, Amend, McMillan, McCollum, Trumbo, Custer, Brown, Sutherland & Hale.
Maternal ancestor names include: Garden, Spreng, Baird, Coble, Horner, Merckle, Young, Stoner, Matthews, Barrett, Clark, Holsworth, Witten, Brandenberry, Knosp, Faber & Wells.

Ancestry includes English, Scottish, Irish, French-Speaking Germans and German-Speaking Germans.

The current Findagrave project on which I have been heavily involved, with other contributors, is to create a complete listing of the burials of the Stafford (Kansas) Cemetery. Most of the names are established already. Now we are making links and adding marker photos and obituaries/biographies to the memorials. Making excellent progress.....!!

I stumbled on a bunch of Page County, VA, obituaries while searching for information about my second grade teacher.

RE: 2nd Lt. James W. Evans, Memorial #65818383
You are most welcome Richard. I believe that all of our fallen soldiers deserve to be remembered and celebrated. I will stop by and check out both memorials.

Take Care

Richard, double fudge darn it! I have a photo that is supposedly of a Robert Downing from the late 1930's and I was hoping to find someone to verify it. I will just keep trying to track someone related. Thanks for letting me know. debi burgess

RE: T/5 Winfred Keith Smith
The movie A Bridge too far is based on the book of the same name by Cornelius Ryan, author of The Longest Day. The book is a much more complete account of Msrket Garden the Arnhem operation to attempt to seize a Rhine crossing, and should be read by anyone who seeks the complete story, which is inadequately although more colorfully told by the movie, and casts a brighter light on the reasons for its failure other than its excessively ambitious plan, which was effectively doomed unless all participating units accomplished their missions successfully as envisioned.
