I linked William Houston to his father and added the bio to his memorial that you requested. However, his wife's middle name is Scales not Seales as you have indicated in the bio. Her name is Julia Scales Jackson, Scales is also her mother's maiden name. Maggie

|Anne Cady||Charles Hutchins - Arlington National Cemetery|
Can you please remove the scan of the obituary that you posted to Charles Hutchins memorial? You may not be aware, but posting scans of any obits is forbidden based on find-a-grave rules. If you could take a moment and type it up with the source, I'd be happy to add it in the biography field where it is allowed. Thank you.
Extracted from the Find-a-grave rules:
Can I add an obituary to my interment listing?
You should not copy obituary notices from newspapers (or from funeral home notices or web sites) to an individual's memorial record unless you have permission from the newspaper to do so or you are the author of the obituary. .... Similarly, you may NOT scan an obituary and add it as a photograph to a memorial record.

Hello, I added a photo of Stella Bissonnette to her grave profile. The request had been closed when a problem was reported. This turned out to be an easy one to miss as the information appeared on the back side of a marker in the Joseph plot. I added a picture of the front with the Joseph information.

I think his body was left in China. I found two online news articles and a line drawing of his grave from a 1901 newspaper in Maitland, Austraila. One talked of him dying there of suspected pleursy. The second was a muster roll of all men who went. Some died, some stayed an additional 6 months in other parts of China and some simply went missing.
They gave his place of employment as he was apparently a reservist. This unit didn't get much financial support from joint Australian and British higher ups like they were supposed to. The line drawing was from the left and closer unlike the photo in the findagrave memorial.
I run into headaches on cemeteries. Sometimes different sections of what I regard as one big cemetery is carved up into sections for different religions, races, denominations, natioanlities, etc. Each with its own name. Sometimes there are claims the cemetery is for all foreigners.
So I don;t know about the ring roads there. I know one person jumped me and wanted e to new a grave to another cemetery name. I did so as the fastest way of getting rid of them. That cemetery is now a park there. I did see an interesting site online. A British man went over there to vosit the site where his brother died on a British ship attack by Japanese ca 1937. He had the help of a local Chinese librarian and a local man acting as a tour guide. They found a man who pointed out a large old tree which he said stood atthe entrance so that they were able to orient themslves. There were also pictures of a large reburial by British officials and army officers. These bodies had been move dthere from another city on the eve of the war. There were pictures a short time later of coffins stacked around in the chaos when war broke out.
