Charles R. George, Sr.
Memorial #144350449
Hi, I'm sending this to update Danny Lee Whitt's DOB. He was born Aug 12, 1946.

I created a find a grave record for him as I only recently learned of his passing, but discovered you had already posted one. I'll delete mine if you'll just update his DOB. It would be nice to see a photo of the marker posted if one's available.

TSgt Danny Whitt was my AF supervisor when I was a young Amn 1C in the Combat Mobility Branch of the 374th Aerial Port Squadron (MAC). Great guy who remained my friend since.

He served in Peshawar Pakistan and Incirlik Turkey in the USAF Security Service. Then for several years in the Armed Forces Courier Service as an official U.S. courier.

Thank you for recognizing Danny on Find a grave.

Sincerely and respectfully,

C. Ross George, Chief Master Sergeant, USAF (Ret.)
604MASS / 374APS - 24 Aug 1975-23 Mar 1979

George C Parker
Hi. I was just looking around for some relatives, and I see you have a memorial for a George C Parker, memorial # 22963194 . You have a full birth date for him, in 1875, but the gravestone appears to say 1854. I thought I'd bring this up so you could investigate this.
Thanks for your work on Find A Grave

Thanks for the edits.
On Phillis, though, Sparks was the last name of her first husband, not her maiden name.
Thanks so much for all you do.

Norman Shipp
Updated name for Charles S. Wesley Verplank
Thanks so much for all your work!

I looked at the picture you took of the headstone and it seems that the "S" initial in the name is the last letter of his first name "Charles".

So, his name should be "Charles Wesley Verplank" without the initial "S".

Could you, being the original owner, update the name?

Grupe, Emilio # 126800138
Mr. Williams.

Thank you so much for the service you provide for thousands of families.

In our case a special Thank you is in order. While researching my husband's family we came across your posting for Great, Great Uncle Emilio Grupe. While my husband was born in 1946, his family resided in Manila during the Japanese occupation and he grew up with hundreds of stories including his uncles bravery and unfortunate death.

After we saw your posting we had to learn more. Believe it or not, Aunt Alice, Emilio's wife is still with us. She will be 101 years old in September. We located her children as well as Aunt Alice and immediately had a reunion. They only lived an hour from us all these years.

What brings me to write to you, is on the Find a Grave website you post a letter from The Travelers Insurance directed to the Foreign Affairs, State Department. WHERE did you get this letter? As you can imagine, we are quite interested, as Travelers never made any payment to Alice. I would really appreciate your assistance in this regard. Linda

I am interested in your contribution to my father's info, re the papers regarding his death in the Philippines. I have the family copies of all of these, but I saw you had a reference to cemeteries and memorials in Manila. Is there something there about him? I lived in Manila 1948-50.

I have submitted a change to his birthplace as Baltimore,MD.

Hello Jack, Just found your Memorial #119340654 on James Adelbert Williams. Are you perhaps related to him or know anything about him? I am looking for a James A. Williams born abt 1926 in Michigan to Harry F. & Laurel Emma "Hutchens" Williams. Last I found the family was in the 1940 Michigan Census in Clawson, Oakland County and James A. was 13 yrs. He is my 2nd Cousin and his dad Harry is my 1st Cousin 1x removed. Harry's parents were Fred & Kathryn "Lambert" Williams, and Fred is my Grand Uncle.
Hope you can help me on this family and just maybe we are kinfolk.
Thank You for your time and help!

Hobart Cemetery
Thank you for all of your work on Find-a-Grave. I live in Saugerties and am a cemetery walker. There is no such cemetery as the Hobart Cemetery in Saugerties. I spoke to William Spring's wife just the other day to see where William was buried and he was cremated and she still has him home with her. If you could please fix this problem, I and Mrs Spring would appreciate it
Thank you

Rosa Reyes' memorial from Puerto Rico National Cemetery
Hello, Mr. Williams,

My name is Leilani Belendez and I'm a member of Find a Grave. For the past 3 years I have been answering photo requests and have researched the history of the cemetery and people buried there, especially from the 1910-1950's. I find their information and include it in the memorials for genealogical purposes. You can see an example of what I do in memorial #3238269 for Carmen L. Ortiz.

I took a photo for Rosa Reyes, whose memorial you created on Oct. 7, 2012 (#98452617) and I searched for her information. I found her death certificate and her US National Cemetery Control Form. I wanted to ask you if it would be possible for you to include her information on her memorial if I sent it to you. Would you mind? You would only have to copy/paste it.

Congratulations on your work for Find a Grave, it's truly amazing.

PS Rosa Reyes was the mother in law of Sgt. Sanchez, not his wife.

William Orville Thomson (request)
Dear Jack Williams,

I have a request for you that the maternal grandfather of my aunt's late husband, William Orville Thomson, died in Egypt in January 1969. Can you please, find his record and add it to Find a Grave? His daughter was Patricia Ann Thomson Fullenwider (1928-2011) where her son was Kevin Kyle Mosley (1955-2009), my aunt's late husband. I am appreciated of your works here in Find a Grave.

Yours truly,

I've posted the problem with this search but not sure if you automatically get the message. Here's what I posted:

He doesn't seem to have a marker yet or may not be interred at Vashon Cemetery. You could contact the island funeral home which is the only one here on the island and they have complete records. They may be able to help.
