RE: Edits
Hi David - Thanks for your reply. Yes, there will be a number next to the word "Edits" if you have any pending. Even though you don't see a number, the tab is still "clickable" for lack of a better term. There is some info. in the FAQs and on the forums. If you want to scroll through my messages, contributors Connie A. and also Bill and Elaine Schrock have included links to those parts of FAQs. I'll be posting some sort of results of this on my home page in 1-2 days. Hope you have a nice weekend. Take care.

"Edits" tab on home page
HI - I'm doing a quick survey of about 400 people on my friends list just to see how many are aware of the new "Edits" tab on their home page. If you could just shoot me back a brief response, either way that would be great. Thanks.

RE: Bradshaw Crypt
David, They are in a very dark Corridor. One set of stairs leading up to it in the middle of the corridor. There are two Sanctuaries on the East side of the corridor which also divides it. They are four tiers up and their marker is not readable from the corridor. Kathy has a better camera for those and was able to get a readable photo after several attempts. The numbering was askew so we had to take numerous shots to find theirs. It is a labor of love for the two of us. We met while graving and have become great friends. Next time I go I will take several shots of the wall they are in and the surroundings for you. It is odd as they are in a 3 person full body crypt. I think this is the only section with that size crypt floor to ceiling. James

RE: john and eva bradshaw
David, A fellow graver and I searched for the Bradshaw crypts. It took us a good 30 mins to figure out which was theirs as the hall was dark and the marker was dark. They are together in a 3 person crypt along with Maude. My friend took the photo and will post it tonight.

So glad I was able to help you with this.

Same area, however, the entire Mausoleum had to be locked as you can get to MJ via any entrance.

RE: john and eva bradshaw
Oh I forgot, when you add the burial plot do a photo request for both so they will appear on the printout. James

RE: john and eva bradshaw
David, Add the burial plot to her memorial and put the same on his. I am going to FL Sat and will try to find them. If you add them today it will show on the printout tomorrow. I love going into the Mausoleum and it is hard to get into. Since Michael Jackson was placed there it is under high security. It pays to have good friends in odd places. LOL

David, I saw your request as "open" this morning so I posted up the headstone shot from my data base... Apparently, the other contributor let it sit too long and it expired. Happy to help out. If there are others at this cemetery, let me know as I have all but 3 rows shot, inputing as time allows..

RE: Photo Request
Thanks David for the link. It's very interesting and humbling to reflect on the lives of each person who served on this boat - especially the ones who passed in 1939. Amazing the read their stories. Thanks again. Steve

RE: Photo Request
Dear David,
Thank you so much for your message. It is an honor to share and participate "alongside" you in this effort. Often times the memorials for those pictures I've taken at the LA National Cemetery do not have details or pictures. So it was very interesting to see what you have done for Robert's memorial. I was not familiar with this tragic situation, so it was even more interesting to look up and see the information on-line. Thank you again for all that you do to honor those who have given so much. Very best regards,

Hi David,
You're very welcome for the photo. Glad I could help. I am always there so if you find you have another name I'd be more than happy to check it out before you put in a request. :)
Hope you have a great weekend.

Be well..

I have no personal connection. Sometimes I run across someone listed on findagrave I consider a hero or extremely interesting. Then I try to find out more information by searching the internet. It's amazing what I find.

RE: Robert F. Gibbs - Squalus Victim
I added another photo to show the complete grave.
The tombstone has since been restored by the subvets. I understand that it is one of only two such monuments in the country. A state archaeologist was trying to get it listed on the national historical register, but there was some hangup regarding Robert's wife's information and the gentleman retired before he was successful.
Have you seen another monument like it?

RE: Robert F. Gibbs - Squalus Victim
I would like to keep Robert Gibbs. He is buried in my church cemetery and was the brother-in-law of my Aunt Lillian Fortune Gibbs. His nieces are close to me. I will remove the generic cemetery photos. You might like to know that the local submarine veterans hold their memorial service at his grave each year and my cousin donated lots of his personal effects and documents to the South Caroliniana Library at the University of South Carolina. He is not forgotten. Many old folks around town remember "Rob".
Regards, Drew

RE: Photo request
Very familiar with the Sailfish or, as many superstitious Navy men called it, the Sqauilfish. A number of local members of the former 204th Coast Artillery, captured in the Philippines and prisoners of the Japanese, were lost in the transport sinking in 1944 in which the Sailfish was involved. Sad all around. Naquin also was from this region.

RE: Gavin James Coyne
Mr Coyne has been transferred to your capable hands. I think it's a trip that you requested the photo so quickly after I created the memorial. I had taken the picture before the memorial was created and just hadn't added it yet. I linked him to his Mom. And sponsored his memorial.

How is your Dad? Mine has dementia and isn't quite 84. Unfortunately he remembers only the negative. But I had the incredible honor of taking care of Oscar Lanham, a Pearl Harbor survivor for the last two years of his life. He was active in the Sacramento Pearl Harbor Survivors Assoc until he developed three types of cancer. But we attended monthly luncheons and what an experience that was.

Anyway, I can't seem to find any offspring, spouse etc for Mr Coyne so I promise to check on his grave and keep it tidy.

Gavin James Coyne

I added the photo of Mr Coyne's grave to the memorial. I am fairly certain that this is the same Gavin James Coyne that survived the incident that you mentioned. I found a newspaper article where it lists the survivors and their home city and state. How many Gavin James Coynes could there of been from Sacramento, CA at that time. Also serving in the USN at that time? If there were more than one I'll eat my hat. LOL

I'm thinking a bio with the historic info is appropriate. Are you interested in writing one? If so I'll just transfer the memorial to you for management.

Let me know!

Kurtis Davis
Warren Lord Pike (Mackford Wisconsin)
I have been doing some research regarding the organs of my family and have dug up some interesting information liking Warren L. Pike with my family. The land the Warren L. Pike owned in Mackford Wisconsin is where the house I grew up in is located. I know the house was built before the selling or transfer of the property to my grandfather Warren Davis. What I am trying to find out is the Pike and Davis family connected through relations or just a coincidence they both bare the name Warren. Also why it is stated Warren Pike owned the land in the early 1900s when I was always told it was family owned by my grandmother.

Thank you for any help you can provide.

Thanks for the obituary on Dr. Lange. I have added it to his page. My parents lived in the Farragut area and took all their pets to Lange Animal Hospital.
