RE: Harkins Grave Marker
I will check with the Sinai Temple which has burials at Greenwood Cemetery but they keep their own records. I don't know what the VVMF is.

No that's fine. I will put any info on this memorial that you want on there and can not get it on there yourself.

I am happy to make the transfer and I am aware of the wonderful job you and your classes are doing. I am with the Portage Historical Society and I'd like to make a copy of any and all Portage servicemen you have information on. Thanks again. We still are not done with reading Calvary Cemetery. It is huge.

HI Tom,

I appreciate what you are doing and I thank you for your service to our great Country.
I would rather hold on to the memorial until family steps forward as there is some in the area here.

Keep up your great work and please take care

RE: Ramon P. Cancel
Hi Thomas,

The information I put on his memorial is this, A
bridge over the Deep River in the Lake Station
neighborhood where Ramon grew up was named the PFC Ramon Pena Cancel Bridge.

Hope that helps or perhaps contact his parents about it. If you do would you ask them where his is buried? and what school he attended and graduated from?

RE: Jim Grover Pardy Jr.
Wow, this would be absolutely wonderful. I have quite a lot of information on him but I'm always open to more -

but I don't have alot of military info for his father in World War I though. His name was James Grover Pardy Born May 18, 1982 in Colman South Dakota and he died Sep 26, 1986. If you have access to this type of information I would sure appreciate it.

My email is

Jim Grover Pardy Jr.
I want to thank you sooooo much for posting the picture of my uncles funeral on the website for us. He was only 20 and the oldest of 11 children when he died. He was also the first of his unit to die in World War II. He was on a mission in Belfast delivering somethig on his motorcycle and was hit by a truck. His first burial was in Belfast, then somewhere else and then now he is in the cemetery in Cambridge England where many of my relatives have visited him. He came from a very small town in Madison, South Dakota. His unit went on to very intense fighting in North Africa and many did not survive. One of his friends had sent my Grandma this picture of his funeral so she could have it. She never got to Ireland or England to see the grave. She lost her next holdest son Jack 3 years later to the war... so sad. I thought you might want to know a little about him. Again, thank you so much... Kathryn Koch

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.
