|Bio and Links|
My little brother Hank Davison turned me on to this. He has created virtual cemeteries of our families, linked child to parent all the way back to the 17th century immigrants and earlier forebears. Compared to him I am a piker or dabbler. I create memorials for classmates, shipmates, and squadron mates when I find one is needed and I have the information.|
Our families on which Hank is working diligently are Davison (our father), Monges(our mother) and through them Risley, Grant, Fales, Mason, and Morgan. My wife's line is Bradfield, Crim, and, Abel or Abell. My first wife who died in 1956 was Holmes and Cheesborough (NC), Brock(MD and Maine); our then infant daughter married a van Noppen of NC but died young herself, and I am interested in them for her daughters.
My own principal efforts are virtual cemeteries for my Naval Academy company and 1953 classmates, shipmates from USS Waldron and Epping Forest, and squadron mates from VAW-12. I also have done one for my father's USNA 1929 classmates and comrades from early Naval Aviation in VF-1 Top Hats, in which he served after his "winging" at Pensacola.
My involvement in FaG gives me a sense of continuing to be useful since my world is confined to my computer at my kitchen table since I became hemiplegic and wheelchair bound by a stroke in 2008.
In the course of my browsing I have learned that some of my ancestors are in good company; My thrice great-grandfather Monges is in Christ Church Burial Ground in Philadelphia a few yards from Benjamin Franklin.
Although I have only created 350 memorials and manage fewer than 30 others, I have assembled a great many more, both of my own family and Naval Academy classmates, squadron- and shipmates, and those of my father's class, squadrons, and ships, into virtual cemeteries. My classmates and their families have received my efforts with appreciation. Over half of the Annapolis class of 1953 is gone by now, as more are dying of natural causes rather than in training or combat as they did during the first two decades after graduation and commissioning. I remember my father's grim expression the day he returned from a classmate's funeral and commented that it was probably the last time that they could muster a full set of active pallbearers, and it was indeed, as there were not enough for the next, which was his class secretary who called me frequently to ask how Dad was doing.

This woman is a member of my family and your memorial is a dupe. You would need to delete yours.
|Richard Wright||RE: # 141265607 Nancy Knotts|
Thanks for the kind words...it seems that we both put up memorials for your friend, Phil. I'd gladly delete mine since you have a special interest in both Phil and his wife. Please let me know what to do.
|Joseph StCloud IRWIN||RE: Capt Joseph Bailey Logan|
Thank you very much And I know you have been
through some real tough days . I wish you well
to continue your days ahead. Jerry & Joe have
made their Classmates both 1948 & 1953 proud to
have known their service to our Country and
Honor to the United States Navy. "Well Done"
|Joseph StCloud IRWIN||Capt Joseph Bailey Lgan|
It is difficult to see Joe Logan "Four striper
& Sub Driver) in our High School Senior English
class with Jerry Weaver "F-8 Naval Pilot" in
1948. Best of all, you guys were 1953 USNA
Classmates. This is truly what Find A Grave is all about.
|Tim & Grace||CDR Frank Slattery|
Thanks for writing to me. I am willing to try to add to Commander Slatterys memorial... I have been quite busy with findagrave lately since it was taken over by ancestry.com. More people are seeing the memorials these days and thereby asking for updates to the memorials.
If I haven't done anything within a week or so, please remind me and I will give it a try.
Sincerely, Tim Cooper

We're all set. I added the photo to your memorial and removed my memorial. It's great that you're doing a virtual cemetery for your class!
|Erin Nikitchyuk||RE: # 146309487 Eugene T Watzecha|
Can you please put your record in the appropriate cemetery? At that point I'll reload the photo to your record and delete mine.
I'm not a "numbers" person, so I'm not at all opposed to deleting mine or having them merged. (I actually hate creating new records for the photos I take - it's so much easier for me when they already exist).
It's my understanding that by Find A Grave rules the first record in the appropriate cemetery is considered the oldest record even if your "burial unknown" record pre-dates it. A number of search engines like Ancestry or Mocavo will help you determine burial locations if you don't know them for records you create. I think if the person was in the military, there is a free search site dedicated to finding those burials.
