Hubert N Schutz
Thomas I noticed you added a tombstone photo to Hubert Schutz, memorial #80377971 in 2011. There was already a photo on that memorial from 2010. Possibly your photo was automatically added when you put it on his wife, Gertrude Schutz.

There is no way that I can delete it and it would not be fair to the person that added it first to ask them to delete their photo. So, will you please delete the photo from Hubert's memorial.

Thanks in advance,
Betty Reese

WWII efforts

As you may know, many of our WWII veterans who are buried in Europe, have been adopted by local families. I have met a few of these adopters and find they treat our fallen (or MIA) veterans with respect and dignity. These people help these men be remembered.

I am volunteering with a Dutch non-profit group which is assembling a database of our veterans in 3 cemeteries in Belgium and Holland. This site ( is searching for information and photos of these men.

I noticed you had pictures of some soldiers you are managing who don't have one not posted on this Adopter's website. I would like to ask your permission to use the photos so they can be known to many. Is that possible?

The men I have found are:

Lawrence Murray
Clarence E Haston, Jr
Lewis Baylor
Lawrence V. Abbamonto

Thank you in advance.

August Carl Nissen
Delighted to see your photos of August Nissen and his gravestone. He was a first cousin of my grandmother, Wilhelmina Klumpp (1876-1971). I have four other photos of him in various uniforms plus one as a child. My brother remembers meeting him in Arlington, VA about 1952 when he would have been 80.

RE: Richard Cable
Hi Thomas,

Yes, I will transfer Richard Cable’s memorial to you, but I have a request. Would you please use the Edit tab on his memorial and ask for the transfer using the “Suggest any other correction or addition” link. Doing so makes the transfer process very easy and allows me to keep track of the memorials I have transferred. As a former Lake County high school educator, retiring in 2010 after 38 years of teaching, I appreciate and applaud your dedication to the profession and your service to our country.

Tom, it was my pleasure. When I go to a cemetery, I always look around for military veterans and take their photos, too. I saw 3 more Vietnam Veterans and also got photos for them. I don't know if it is any one that you need or not.

Take Care

Duplicate memorials
From FindAGrave Guidelines:
Before adding a memorial, search the cemetery to see if a record with that name has already been added. If you are adding a memorial for someone who does not have a physical grave or memorial marker in a cemetery (perhaps their ashes were scattered), please do a general search on Find A Grave (do not enter a location) to see if a memorial has already been created for that person. If you find a memorial has been added but has incomplete or incorrect information, instead of creating a duplicate memorial use the tools provided to submit corrections, additions or a transfer request via the "Suggest A Correction" link under the 'Edit' tab on the upper right of the memorial. Never deliberately create a duplicate memorial.
We have sent you several messages to delete all of the duplicates you have created in Chapel Lawn Cemetery. You have not responded.
Please delete them or we will notify Find a Grave. Thank you

Permission to Use Photo
Hi Tom,

I would like to obtain permission to use a photo that you have posted to Find A Grave. I would post this to my tree at for myself and others to view.

The Photo is of an Intent to Naturalize record posted to Pvt Phillip Pitz (Find A Grave Memorial #33520779). This Civil War veteran would be a brother-in-law to my great grand aunt. His bother, Henry also served in the Civil War, but most of his records have his surname as Pitts. It has been a hard road finding information on Phillip. And here you find a record for him in an antique mall. Thank you for posting it to Find A Grave. It has lead me to other documentation for him.

So delighted to see the photo you posted of my Great Grandfather. My Mom has never seen this photo before and we'd love to hear where you found it! Mom says he joined when he was very young, and lied about his age to get into the military. He looks like my son and my older brother when he was young.

Newspaper Article
I enjoyed reading the newspaper article about Green Miller's father and the dogtags. Would you also put the newspaper article on Green's father memorial? His father is listed on the family links on Green's memorial page. Thank you.

Thank you for adding the photos to Green Miller's memorial page. I found his name on the Vietnam Memorial Wall years ago when I was on vacation in Washington DC.

Joseph C Szymczak
Hello Thomas,

Thank you for creating a memorial for my paternal Grandfather, Joseph Szymczak. (mem # 78865976) If his memorial does not hold sentimental value to you, would you mind transferring it to me? It would mean a great deal to me, if I could link him to other family members and add photos.

Thank you for your consideration and for the time and effort you put in to volunteering!
