Thomas J Dobbins

At this page for Thomas J Dobbins, the biography says that he was divorced. In fact, he first married Addie Werling in 1914 and four short years later, she and two of her brothers died of the 1918 influenza pandemic. This left him a widower. By the 1930 census, he had married Hope Sarpy and was living with her and her mother Jeanette. He was very unhappy married to Hope and by 1935, he'd left Louisiana for good - and divorced Hope.

Here is Addie's page

I have been unable to find anything on Hope or Jeanette Sarpy.

Can you possibly change Thomas J. Dobbins' bio so it doesn't suggest that he divorced his beloved Addie but was, rather, her widower, and that it was Hope he divorced? It may seem like a small thing, but it's important to me. Thank you!

Thank you for searching for the headstone of Ida Lewing Perry. I did paste your note in her bio so another request will not be added. You are appreciated.

Photojournalist, Arthur Uhlmann

Hello Elaine! Thank you, so much, for so quickly uploading the bio i wrote for Mr. Uhlmann, and for crediting me at the bottom. I see you also linked the names of the other journalists who were with him on Press in JFK's motorcade to their findagrave memorials. I have tried to do that in the past on memorials i've created by inserting html coding tags, the link for the page itself etc... but it didn't work. So, I have no idea how you did that, but I appreciate that you did it for me!

Also, I have been an amateur JFK assassination researcher (ie: I haven't published a book) for 40+ years, who specializes in identifying the eyewitnesses to events that weekend: the Texas School Book Depository employees and other witnesses who lined the motorcade route in Dealey Plaza, law enforcement officers, and journalists, photographers & cameramen. I also like to make them findagrave memorials, or add bios to their existing memorials so they are not forgotten and to help complete the historic record. So many of these people have now died, and it makes me sad at how many of of them seem to be completely forgotten and lost in the mists of history. Even these photojournalists, like Mr. Uhlman and Mr. Rozumalski, who were at the time nationally acclaimed, winning numerous national awards for best newspaper photographer etc... As a longtime JFK researcher, even I had never heard of them until stumbling upon their names recently in a list of motorcade participants who were occupants of Press Bus No. 2. When i began my research on them that was all i knew about them - their names and the newspaper for which they worked.

I collaborate with a longtime, well-known (among JFK assassination authors and community) Canadian researcher, Denis Morissette, who has the world's most extensive photo collection and photo blogs set up for the identification of the journalists, cameramen, photographers and law enforcement officers who covered & investigated the assassination events that weekend. If you do a "find" for my last name "Zambanini" you will find me credited under many photo identifications on his websites:


And here is his original old main page with author Gayle Nix Jackson, introducing him and his work at the top. (Gayle is also a good friend of mine and grandaughter of Orville Nix who took the "Nix Film" of the assassination in Dealey Plaza opposite Zapruder). It has links to his photo-blogs youtube channel etc:

All this is to introduce myself, and to ask if you are a relative or family friend of Mr. Uhlman or Mr. Rozumalski (both photojournalists from Wisconsin who worked for the Houston Chron) and if you would happen to have a photo, especially of Mr. Uhlman, contemporaneous to the JFK assassination so we can know what he looked like at that moment in history. A contemporaneous photo also helps us to and find them in other films and photos taken that weekend - also part of our work. I have only been able to find a 1938 HS sophomore yearbook photo of Mr. Uhlman (which i posted on his memorial today). However, people can change a lot in 27 years. Last night I finally found a '64 newspaper photo of Mr. Rozumalski, but it's very grainy and overexposed. If you have photos of either of them circa '63, or know their families who would have and contribute one, I greatly would appreciate your help in my search. Thanks again, Elaine!
