RE: Christine Lundmark's memorial page
I would like your personal advice. As you know I am new to making entries. My wife and I traveled to France, spent the night in St. Avold and specifically went to the American Battle Monument Commission Lorraine Cemetery to make photos of the graves of 36 men who served with my father. The assistant director went with us, placed flags, and sanded the writing on each cross so it would stand out. My father was with some of these troopers when they were killed and was close to many of them. I have his stories about them and I have researched their date/place of birth, family connections, descriptions of their service in Europe, and sometimes as far back as 1940. I started entering names and info and I suddenly received a message asking me to stop. The writer seemed upset. She also asked me to spell names correctly. She has photographed most of the crosses--I looked and some cannot be read as they are washed out--and it looks like she is just doing a blanket overview of the crosses. I thought findagrave would block duplicate names cemetery. The director of the cemetery was looking forward enthusiastic about me adding all the personal info.
Is it unethical for me to continue to create my own site/info?
I wrote to her and asked her to release the 36 to me but have not heard anything. I doubt that she will. The tone of her message was less that polite.
It is my fault for taking my time getting all the information together. I should have put them on immediately and then researched. This is my way of honoring these men--some of whom held me as a baby.
The director at the Epinal Cemetery and I know each other well. He spent 5 years entering all of the approximately 5000 crosses. And he wants to work together. We will coordinate and add personal stories/info--I expect to see him on Memorial Day in May.
I strongly suspect the person at St. Avold must live near the cemetery. 12,000 takes a lot of work.
I hope she responds. My principal question to you is it unethical for me to continue with the 36 if she will not cooperate?
Thanks for your advice.

RE: Christine Lundmark's memorial page
Did I send you a thank you note? I cannot tell if it went through. I gave you some instructions on how to find your ancestor(s) grave stones in that section of the cemetery.

RE: Christine Lundmark's memorial page
Thank you very much. I am new at adding graves and information. At the moment I am working on 36 troopers from my father's wwII unit KIA and buried at the Lorraine Cemetery in St. Avold, France. My wife and I spent the night in St. Avold, my third trip I believe, to catch the morning sun on the graves. In fact, if you look at Mylem Shamburger, France, one I completed this week will come up.

This is how I found my two relatives. fortunately, Christina Lundmark was #1 by the road and there were two gravestones next to hers that were mounted. So using those two we found her place--in the snow. On a later trip the cemetery associate and I, and my wife, went with a shovel and started uncovering stones. We would get a name, he would call it in, they would give us the grave number and row and slowly we triangulated to find his. I probably know it is a perpetual care cemetery so they, by law, must raise and mount the stones at their expense.

Grandmother was not as easy. He called the union worker who brought a probe. No stone under the ground. dug down at least a foot with no success. The following is true, though strange. The night before I had a dream my wife was standing about the middle of the grave. Her foot fell in and Christina grabbed her foot. I asked the man to try the probe there and he hit the stone 8 inches under the soil. I suppose it slid down there when the grave collapsed.

I feel certain they can help you find the grave(s) by triangulating.

For what it is worth, Christina and Charles emigrated from Sweden to Chicago. Charles died in a construction accident in 1903. Christina was murdered in 1913. We found the long newspaper article about that. Dad told me his mother used to take him to the grave when he was growing up.

And, if you are from Chicago, my great-grandparents Teske emigrated from Prussia to Chicago in 1882. They lived at 1222 Oakdale all their lives in the USA, dying in 1932 and 1935. My grandfather was born in that house, as was my father. Later my grandmother and my father lived at 1225 Oakdale. he came south in 1940 with the Chicago Black Horse Calvary (106th Cavalry Regiment, National Guard), fought in WWII, married before the war, and declared he was not going back to Chicago's cold winters.

Thank you again for your help. Let me know if you locate your ancestors' graves.

Check your edits. I may have sent in the correction but I am pretty sure it was in Section 113.

Hello, I see that you have added a record for John W Sheehan- he is my ggrandfather, and I also have a listing for him. Is there a way to link the two? Or would you like to transfer the above record to me. His other listing is 110249741. Thanks. Sally Edwards

PS I did not have the grave site listing for his second wife- thanks.
