I am interested in old cemeteries and genealogy. Though I hold a full time job I can occasionally take photos at cemeteries within a 5 mile radius of New Cambria, KS. I am especially interested in the cemeteries where I have family resting but any old cemetery sparks an interest.
William P. Davis 1864-1935 William Davis was my great grandfather. I was reading my great grandmother's life story & typed in their names & found the picture of his grave. I am William & Margaret's daughter Elizabeth's granddaughter... Thanks for posting...
RE: Ralph Brown That's sad about their deaths, the way they went but comfort knowing they're not in pain anymore. If the markers are incorrect, you, as family, can always call the VA Office and "possibly" have a new marker placed. If it's a real old one, like Civil War, they won't replace them. If you want to call the office, their number is (913) 758-4105. Leavenworth hasn't changed much since you left, except places closing down. Everyone goes to Kansas City to shop. I call it "the dried up little town".....so sad. Have a great week, Joyce
RE: Ralph Brown You're very welcome for the photo; it was my pleasure. I have found several errors on markers from our two National Cemeteries in Leavenworth, not only dates but names. The marker could be incorrect. According to the VA National Database it reads:
Ralph L. Brown PFC 363 Inf Regt US Army, World War II 02-27-1915 09-02-1953 Section 37, Row 10, Grave 31
You could try calling the office at the VA, they have the original records of burial (913) 758-4105 and ask them to look up his YOB on their records and also ask for any other information they have on record. If the marker is incorrect, they could possibly replace it if it is a request from family.
RE: SANBORN CEMETERY LEGAL DESCRIPTION HI Keith, I'm not sure where abouts your saying the Sanborn cemetery is, is that Greeley Kansas ? I don't mean to sound like a d--s--. I'd sure love to find out. Thank you so much for your help !!!! Sue
