Forest Lawn Cemetery ~
Hello George. I just noticed in passing, there's a seven month old photo request at Forest Lawn Cemetery that you could satisfy by putting THIS photo onto THIS memorial too. Happy hunting!

Hi George, just wanted to say thank you very much for posting the photo of him to my memorial. It always adds so much to a memorial to have a photo of the person.

Thank you,

My attempt to get Airey Neave declared famous
I've revised my bio of Airey Neave on, still hoping to satisfy the unwritten rules, and once again submitted an application for their "famous" designation. Most grateful if you're able to take a look and cast a vote! Maybe this time he'll make it.

You created the memorial below and added the photo. I would like to know if there is Hebrew on the back of the monument. It would give his father's name. If you have time, I would appreciate your checking. Thanks,
Roberta from Boston

George, Thank you so much for taking this photo. I'm really glad you claimed it. Your description made me feel as if I were right there, hobbling along, finding it with you. I'll be in Virginia in April and possibly October. We need to go roam a,cemetery together. Good to see you out there. Thanks again my friend. More might be coming. Working on completing Virginia asap for the first book. Take care. Anne

Pvt James H. Wiley
Mr. Seitz,

Thank you for responding so quickly to include the links for Pvt. Wiley. However Catherine Wiley (Find A Grave Memorial# 30412378) is his mother, not his wife.

His first wife was Martha A. Dawson (Find A Grave Memorial# 30412385), daughter of James and Margaret Dawson. They were married on May 15, 1869.

Thomas Talcott
Kind of you — and checking facts is always of benefit! After all, when we started, I had no idea that it might not be right. I was ignorant of something, and now I think I know it, even if it's a negative…

Thomas M R Talcott
Dear Mr. Seitz,

As pretty positively as I can tell, Thomas Mann Randolph Talcott #16660239 was not a West Point graduate, and doesn't even seem ever to have attended the Academy; about this last, I'm a bit less certain.

Only three Talcotts are listed in the 1950 index: Andrew (Class of 1818), George H (Class of 1831), Lawrence T (Class of 1931). Similar results are found online at the official site of the West Point Association of Graduates, at (entering "Talcott" in the "Last Name" field).

He might still have attended, just not graduated — which would have been likely since, born in 1838, he was about the age to graduate in the early years of the War between the States. Many cadets resigned to serve the Confederacy, and are therefore not among the graduates.

So I checked the OROC (Official Register of Officers and Cadets), a yearly printed report, contemporaneous, listing among others all the cadets attending the Military Academy in that year, even members of non-graduating classes, with annotations for those who left the Academy without graduating. I find no Talcott listed in the OROCs in any Class between 1853 (when TMT was 15) and 1861.

As an outlier, I also checked Heitman's Historical Register and Dictionary of the United States Army (1903): no Thomas Talcott is listed; not too surprising, mind you, since he didn't serve as a United States Army officer; but Part III, section 7, includes a list of officers who left the United States Army after November 1, 1860 and joined the Confederate service.

On another offchance, I looked at Freeman's biography of R. E. Lee, in which the Talcott son is mentioned at least twice (index links to the passages in the book) — Freeman doesn't mention that he might have been a West Pointer either.

I'd be interested in the source of the West Point graduate statement; it might just be a commendatory fabrication, or then again there may well be something underlying it.

My bad -- sorry for the confusion about Larkin White! There are four of them buried at Hollywood covering three generations, and I picked up the wrong one.

John T. Wakenight
Good afternoon. Are you any relation to John T. Wakenight? If not, would you please consider passing management to me?

John T. Wakenight was my 3rd-greatgrandfather. My cousin, Charles Sands, is the person who purchased the gravestone for the John. We have lots of info we'd like to add to the bio, which is easier to do if "we" have management level.

Thank you for considering this request.

Best, Robin.

James Hankins
Memorials 29138295 and 29138319
George, I'm James Hankins. While updating my memorials in Henry Co., Va., I found your subject memorials, Jacob W. Ward and Effie L. Ward respectively. My related memorial is Margaret Louise (Ward) Hairfield, Mem 50877094.

Margaret is the wife of my 4th cousin, O.W. Hairfield. I have update information for your subject memorials, and request that you link your memorials as husband and wife. I've already linked Margaret's Find A Grave entry at my location to her parents.

Additionally, Jacob's middle name is Wade (Jacob Wade Ward), born in Kentucky. Effie's middle name is Lee and her maiden name is Jordan (Effie Lee Jordan), born in Virginia. They were married Apr. 26, 1917, Inez, Martin Co., KY.

Lastly, if you'd like to transfer management of them to me, my Find A Grave# is 15003416. If have no issue with you keeping management because technically, they are on my in-law side of kinship. Regards, James Hankins

I have information on a number of your memorials and before I go to all the trouble of sending them, I wish to know if you are one that does add the information coming to you on the memorials. Many do not and it is sad.
