Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy research for over 25 years and have received innumerable "helps" from so many people. I am here to return the favor, if I can. I hope to hear from you.

I have been working on building virtual cemeteries for all fallen Marines and Navy Corpsman. I have over 22,000 sites in these cemeteries. You are welcome to look at it and use any information that I have there for your own use. If you have anyone you would like me to add please let me know. Also, if you would like to transfer Marine/Corpsman sites to me I would appreciate it. Some members do not like to add information and I feel that all of the Marines/Corpsman on this site deserve to have their story told, if there is one.

Duplicates: It is never my intention to create a duplicate on purpose. If you come across a duplicate I have made, please let me know. I'll remove it as soon as I get your note. Please notify me via the EDIT feature.

When requesting a transfer, please state your relationship and add your Find A Grave member number to your request.

Howard Lee "Red" Callahan memorial
I have been taking photo's of all of the gravestones at The Mission San Luis Rey Cemetery, in Oceanside. I took a photo of Howard Lee Callahan's gravestone there. I see on his memorial you have him buried at a different cemetery, and a comment saying defunct. I made a memorial for him and was looking up info for him on and saw your memorial for him. If you want I can send you the photo that I took for him which shows him buried at San Luis Rey Mission Cemetery. Sincerely Susan

Unbelievable, he's from Lidgerwood, North Dakota. My wife's family is from there.

You had created the memorial for Mary Cianciosi Antonello #94304660 and her final resting place has been located at the Mount Calvary Cemetery, Cheektowaga, Erie County, New York, USA. Also someone else has created another memorial. So please either update your burial information or delete your memorial. I have past on the updated information to the other person who created the memorial. 117974265

Dear Bob,
Thank you so much for creating the memorial for my uncle Tedrowe Watkins, it is the closest thing to a memorial service that he has received to date.

I see that you are creating a virtual cemetery for Navy corpsmen. My father, Dr. Maurice M. Osborne, served in the Navy. I created a memorial for him Find A Grave #130307887, if you want to add it to your virtual cemetery.

Thanks for your work,
