|Bio and Links|
I am a Navy veteran, special operations, retiring as a senior enlisted.|
Eastern Cemetery, Jefferson County, KY became a special place to me, due to its history of abuse and neglect. I tried to find some way that I could help ensure that those interred there were not forgotten, and decided to attempt to photograph every readable memorial within the cemetery as my own small way of honorably remembering those people buried there.
I have always believed that those at Eastern Cemetery belong with their families, no matter how distant the link. Feel free to contact me regarding photographs, entries, or about Eastern Cemetery. I have walked the entire cemetery, and crawled through heavy undergrowth in search of markers. I have also researched burial maps, burial records and databases for names, and have input any that I have found.
Feel free to use any of the memorial photos I've placed on findagrave without regard to giving me credit. Having my name in "lights" doesn't interest me. If there isn't a photo on an entry I made, that means it's from records and I haven't found a memorial.
Management of most of my records has been transferred to a friend. I will no longer be involved in findagrave unless it has to do with Eastern Cemetery; I have finally given up on the website due to the emails from those only interested in numbers, claiming "ownership" of cemeteries, or just the general overall rudeness and apparent lack of common sense or intelligence of some. Findagrave, as a website, has lost its way.

You added my grandfather, Holmes Waford to Eastern cemetery and even gave the plot, section #, etc... Nobody has been able to find a marker for this burial. Can you please tell me where you got the information from in order to add this memorial?
Thank you so much for your time, I sincerely appreciate it!

Hi, Somehow your John R Miller headstone was added to my memorial: 131641249. Can you please delete it. There must have been a FindAGrave glitch that melded three different actions together: Your photo, someone else's memorial information, and my memorial #. Thanks, Kathy S

Thank you very much. Sometimes there just is not marker to be found. Your efforts are very much appreciated.

1Lt Leonard L. Shapiro, 2Lt Nathan H. Greenwood, S/Sgt Lawrence E. Rider, S/Sgt George F. Schulze and T/SgtRobert L. Waldrip were on board of their B-25 medium bomber of the 321st Bomb Group, attacking Gerbini airfield (Sicily)in support of operation Husky. It was 5 July 1943, when the plane went on its bomb mission when the plane was hit by Flak crashed, causing an explosion on impact, killing all men.
Their remains could not be identified and they were buried in the temporary American GELA cemetery in Sicily. They were buried in plot-grave I-101-1204 [group burial], after the war their remains were repatriated and buried in grave E-246 of the Zachary Taylor National Cemetery in Kentucky.
I am writing a mansucript for a possible book about the GELA Cemetery and hope to finish it this year . I would like to use the picture you took of their grave. Of course you will be credited and notified when the book is finished.
Can I have your permission

You've been a big help even if it turns up as no relation just by responding. Thank you

Do you have any other information on Susan Ferguson 73940297? I see in the picture that there is a tombstone next to hers, do you know whose name is on it? I am trying to locate my GG Grandparents markers on here. She was Married to a Bill Riley and had 1 daughter ( maybe more ) named Opal Riley. Any info would be appreciated

I'm so very sorry about your Dad. I know how it feels to love you loved ones. I haven't been to Eastern in a long time maybe when it gets warm I'll go again. Take care.
