RE: Pvt. Charles Ady, Jr
For some reason I am having trouble getting to the information on this person or anyone else. HELP. I used to use these resources all the time, but haven't been able to get at them for a while.

RE: Lightfoot
I am not related but feel free to transfer if you'd like. LIGHTFOOT is my husband 's stepfather's name and we really don't go down that branch because there 's no blood relation. Thanks do much for adding info on memorials.

RE: Clarissa (Benjamin) Van Bergen
Sorry, no, not related. All I know of the Van Bergens is the info that I have posted on their memorials. There is a very nice 1904 Bio book which is where I found most of the info and photo. You might try Googling it to see if it is online somewhere: INDEX TO PAST AND PRESENT OF THE CITY OF SPRINGFIELD AND SANGAMON COUNTY ILLINOIS By Joseph Wallace, M. A. of the Springfield Bar, The S. J. Clarke Publishing Co., Chicago, IL, 1904

RE: Tallman in Tully
Hi Sunnyann!

Thanks for your kind words. It was about -5F with the wind chill the day I took those. I need to get back down there and re-photograph them with some green grass and leaves on the trees. I have a couple showing the arrangement - Most of the Tallman graves are in the front row of the cemetery, in a single line.

Clarks in Hillside cemetery
By the way, Eva M Clark b: 19 Nov 1865 in Peekskill, NY was married to my great uncle (Theodore William Wicht) of Yonkers, NY. Her parents were Benjamine Adam Clark and Mary A Gilbert(s). Benjamine's parents were Benjamine Adams Clark and Emeline F. Lent. His parents were Jacob Dyckman Clark and Abigail Adams. His parents were John Clark and Maria Dyckman. Most of the family members lived and died in Cortlandt and Peekskill area.

Which Clarks are you doing research on? I may have some info on them.

The following is all of the information I have on him and it was taken from the book Hester-Stough Genealogy published in 1905. If you are interested you can read the book online at the following web address:

circuit courts of Indiana by appointment of
the governor.

For many years he was an earnest and prominent
member of the Methodist Episcopal church. The
address of welcome to the members of the southern
California conference at 2 of it's sessions at Pasadena,California, was given by him.

Jan Bos from Nijmegen, Holland
Pvt Charles Anthony Ady
Pvt Charles Anthony Ady was a paratrooper in B Battery 376th Parachute Field Artillery Battalion 82nd Airborne Division. He was killed on 11 July 1943 (today 69 years ago) during the so-called operation Husky. His body were found in an ochard ENE of Scoglitti in Sicily; his parachute had not opened properly. He was buried in the temporary American Cemetery GELA in Sicily, in the neighborhood where he was killed.

He was buried in plot-grave B-20-233, date of burial was 3 August 1943 in the Gela Cemetery.

I am writing a book about that cemetery where over 1,200 young American men and women were buried, who were killed during the liberation of Sicily.

Can I have your permission to use the picture you took of his grave for my book, of course you will be credited.

If you are related or know the family, or may have documentation and his picture, hope you are willing to share.

Hope to have finished the book next year for the 70th anniversary of operation Husky.

thank you

Hello Patti,
As part of the new management staff at Oak Hill Cemetery, we are very interested in finding out much more information about the military veterans interred here. Records are very spotty through the 1950's, but earliest burials here were in 1840's. If you have any further information on Major Kimball, or any descendents, we would be very appreciative. Always happy to help anyone looking for information on our folks here, too.
Thanks, Susan

Thanks for transferring John's memorial. I was so happy to be able to connect him to his wife and daughters in Iowa. This has been a hard family to trace.

Thanks also for sharing your website. One of my Demar ladies married a Boyer and lived in Iowa.
Prather is a familiar Md. name but I do not have connections.

I grew up in Prince George's County and belong to the Genealogical Society.

Thanks again
