Well, I did decide to take on Oakwood! It is the biggest cemetery that i've come across. Im currently working 3 cemeteries.
About 2 weeks ago I went to the cemetery to ask permission to take pictures to document. They were very friendly and helpful. I asked how many people are buried there and they replied over 27,000 plus…. And when I started there was about 3,800 documented on Find a Grave.
Oakwood, I've added about 1100 plus within last 2 weeks. Ive come across several of your veterans. As soon as i finish processing these I will be uploading the photos. I believe my camera said i took 1400 pictures.
Ive notice name, dates, and variances on some of the gravestones. I try to ask because I don't want to upset anyone.
RE: Military Headstones Thanks, Rich. I will send you link to my father-In-laws when it is engraved and a photo posted (LOL - may take awhile). He was in AFS - WWII and in US Army - Korea. We have had both listed on his stone. He is inturned at Quantico with upright stone.
Military Headstones Hey, Rich, Do you know of any stones where the American Field Service is designated on a military stone? I've looked and searched and can't find any. We are just wondering how it is usually designated. THANKS! -glenda
John C. Liddle I just posted a picture for John C. Liddle, and his wife.
There grave stone was behind a huge monument I couldn't get fit behind. As you can see it is taken at an angle.
I don't have a program to crop the picture from the memory card. If you don't like it, please delete it.
If couples are together I take them both together. Im going to start a virtual cemetery with spouse of veterans…. So many are not document with there spouse's. Ive come to notice as I photograph the cemeteries.
Spouse's are a strong force of support for these veterans. I growing up with my father in the Navy for 20 years and my own husband for 24 years. Being a spouse of a veteran takes a special person! Not everyone can do it. And, I know this from experience of other veterans spouses.
Well, thats why Im here. The clean up woman ;o) and happy to do so.
