Hello, I am writing to ask if you are in contact with the families of Dallas W and Charles J. Eastin. It is possible their dogtags were found and the finder wishes to return them to family.

Robertson
Hi Karen, Are you related to the Robertson's buried in the Cedar Cemetery, Cedar, KS.

I have a photo request to fill and wondered if you know of a James W. Robertson.

I have that he is buried in the Cedar Cemetery, but when my husband and I walked the cemetery in 2008 and took photos of grave stones - we evidently didn't find one for him.

We will be going up to the cemetery again on memorial day - so will look again.

Appreciate your work on find-a-grave.
