Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am the archivist in my family and have enjoyed researching my family genealogy off and on for the past several years. My favorite hobbies are scrapbooking, photography and walking through old cemeteries. I love the history one finds there. I am currently making heritage albums for my siblings and children. During my research I came across a photo of my great grandmother's grave marker. She lives across the country from me and I would never have seen it had it not been for a volunteer who photographed it. I want to give that gift back and am honored to volunteer for

RE: Eddie Paquette
Hello, Carol. Eddie never actually got to Korea. He was the Army's number one deep sea diver and spent all of his time beyond basic training (Ft. Jackson, S.C.) at Ft. Eustis, Virginia. His unit was the 110th Harbor Craft and Marine Maintenance Battalion. He hated the Army (as all of us draftees did) because he felt he had served his country in WW II and should not have been called up for Korea.

Thanks for the info on Eddie. We served in the Army together during the Korean War and lived together in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida in 1955. He loved his marina just south of Navy Pier.

Jonathan (John) Welton

Thank you for the information that you sent concerning Jonathan Welton. I have update his memorial with as much information as I could find along with references so his descendants can learn more. I think several family trees on has some mixed up connections and information so hopefully this can clear some of that up. I think that grave may be umarked. There's no picture posted with his stone and I know Rita Hagerty photographs the entire cemetery when she goes. The only reference I found for his military headstone however says he died August 15, 1862 which was the date he enlisted and has the cemetery's name as Palmyra but the township is Palmyra so I didn't add that info to the memorial.

I've taken pics of all stones in 2013. I still have some pics on file for stones that are illegible. I can follow up with the church lady that has plot records to locate this grave site & follow up with pic of grave stone &/or site.

Would you like me to send you the original photo? I took it in 2006 when I photographed the whole cemetery.

RE: E A Rathbun
I've added the photo to Thomas. I had another angle that I hadn't used before that I was able to put his name on and I have added that one too. Glad we got the family all straightened out. Chris
