Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching my own genealogy for 25 years. I hope my contribution to this site will make it easier for someone else to fulfill their research goals.
I will gladly make changes/additions to the data I have entered but would request a source for the information if it is a birth or death date change. Vital Statistics will take precedence over other more unreliable sources.

Beatrice Hamilton File
Link to husband is wrong. She was married to James Nelson File and the link you have is to James Francis File. She is listed in error on that site also. James Nelson File, her husband, is buried in Oak Ridge Cemetery, Sangamon Co., IL.

Duplicate site
Find A Grave Memorial# 109713749 is a duplicate site for Joseph Ferreira Smith. Can something be done about this?

Joseph is my Great-Great grandfather. His son, Joseph Roy, was my Great Grandfather, with his son, Luther, being my grandfather.

I was able to share the photo as a link, I am sure the historians who are interested in the Marine's part will love to see this early uniform. Thank you so much for posting it on findagrave!

May I have your permission to share the photo of Ira Wood Decker in his 1903 Marine corps uniform on "The Great War Doughboy Search: Arizona and WWI" Facebook page? I will share any information I find on him with you as I research the WWI veterans who are buried in Arizona. According to his death record he served in the Spanish American War, and the First World War!

Sadly, it doesn't seem like there is much of record of family after his great-granddaughter, Olive Smith. I'll still search and see if I can find anything.
It would be great if Jeannie could arrange to have it placed back on his grave. It's obviously been gone for some time. I'll contact her to see if that's possible.
This is still quite a mystery as to how this ended up in a yard in Connecticut. I wish I had more answers...
Thanks again for your help.

RE: Archimedes Smith
Linda, I cannot thank you enough! You have been a tremendous help. I just read the article on Jeannie's Facebook page. I sent her a message explaining the situation a bit more and a photo of the marker. I'm so grateful for all of your help! Hopefully, I will be able to locate a family member... I'll keep you updated as I learn more.
Thanks again!
