|Bio and Links|
I am an amateur military historian and genealogist. I am interested in researching the burial locations of U.S. military service men and women, particularly at Arlington National Cemetery in Fort Myer, Virginia, and the U.S. Naval Academy Cemetery in Annapolis, Maryland.|
I am also researching my family tree, particularly the Shewan family members who originated in Aberdeenshire, Scotland and their descendents throughout the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
My Scots great-grandfather, William J. Shewan (1867 - 1947) and his son, my grandfather, William W. Shewan (1895 - 1973) arrived at Ellis Island on July 2, 1911 and settled in Erie, Pennsylvania.
In addition to my paternal line, I am researching other family lines, including:
* Akre (originally Aakre in Norwegian)
Other cemeteries of interest:
* Air Force Academy Cemetery, Colorado Springs, CO
* Barrancas Nat'l Cemetery, Pensacola, FL
* Congressional Cemetery, Washington, DC
* Fort Rosecrans Nat'l Cemetery, San Diego, CA
* Golden Gate Nat'l Cemetery, San Francisco, CA
* Hollywood Cemetery, Richmond, VA
* Oak Hill Cemetery, Washington, DC
* Quantico Nat'l Cemetery, Triangle, VA
* Rock Creek Cemetery, Washington DC
* Soldiers' Nat'l Cemetery, Washington, DC
* West Point Cemetery, West Point, NY
Some of my photo contributions can be seen here.
To all the Find A Grave photo volunteers who have been kind enough to take photos of my family's gravestones at my request over the past year, I thank you most gratefully for your time and effort. With graves throughout the United States, the UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, it would not be feasible for me to visit them all and take my own photos. I am extremely grateful to Find A Grave, and to the photo volunteers, for helping me to research my family.
I give my permission to use any of my photos, providing 1) it is not for commercial use, and 2) attribution is given.

I have been in touch with Inverness Crematorium about Mary Shewan. They were able to confirm that she was cremated in Inverness, but her ashes were buried in Cannich Cemetery and there is a headstone.
If you transfer the memorial to Cannich Cemetery and request a photo from there, I'll try to visit and photograph the grave.

Hello G Shewan,
I noticed your photo request for Mary Shewan, who was cremated in Inverness. You have asked for a photo of her memorial in Inverness cemetery. Have her ashes been buried there? (This cemetery is more correctly known as Tomnahurich Cemetery, Inverness, although, confusingly interments have been recorded on Findagrave under both names - causing some duplication of memorials)
I would be happy to look for Mary Shewan's memorial marker if you can confirm that it is in Tomnahurich cemetery and can provide me with a plot number - it is a very large cemetery. Are there other family members in the same lair - if so what are their names?

Hello. I was wondering if you have a familial connection to Miles Kitts. He was my Great Grandad's half sibling. Thank you.

You posted a grave photo for John R. Redman, Find A Grave Memorial# 49355066. He and his wife Elizabeth Clemons Redman are buried in the same plot—would you post the same grave photo for her at Find A Grave Memorial# 49355048? Thank you THR/Bob

Thanks for your edit request. I transfer out of guidelines if you want custody please ask. I'm even willing to "transfer by surname".

I was writing as I had family experiences with North Shore Crematorium, they are not even named that now. It seems they were bought out by Dignity, quite a few years ago. Shows my age.

|William A. McKay||Permission to use your image|
Hello, My name is William A. McKay, in Newark, Delaware, who has seen an image On Find A Grave which I would like to use.
I am very near the end on a book about Delaware Photographers 1839 to 1900 and beyond. I have a number of images (about 55) of tombstones in Delaware and other states.
I would like to have your permission to use your image of Edwin H. Cooper's tombstone who is buried in Arlington National Cemetery. This image will NOT be in the book! But, it would be on a flash drive that anyone who purchases the book would have access to. I understand your position but the image of the tombstone will not be in print in the book.
Whose who purchase the book, have to sign a document that the book and all items on the flash drive is strictly for their personal use. Another way to look at it is, if any new information comes along, the owner can print off a page and lay it in the book, because no 2nd edition is going to happen.
William A. McKay
|Marie Smith||Thank You|
This is going to be a rare heartfelt message to you.
You originally Created a person here on find a grave.
It is Colin F. Vorder Bruegge. I have searched years without success on what had happened to him after he retired. He was the Commanding General at Walter Reed when I first came to serve at Walter Reed in 1970. I joined the Army in 1970 and found myself surrounded by Generals and I was just a PFC and Sp/4 during my time there. I see you have let someone else take care of the site here, but I had to come and let you know from a girl age 18 during the Viet Nam War him and his wife opened their hearts and even their home to me. Here is a picture you might like to see of him as I knew him
You will never know how much it means to have found his and his wife's resting place and greatly just to be found in Arlington.
