|R.||RE: Alexander Weber|
Actually, I can't add any information to Alexander's memorial, as I'm not the manager, just the photographer. You'll need to contact the manager for his memorial (via the "Edit" tab, located in the upper right-hand section of his memorial, just above his photo. Links to his parents can be made via the "relationship" option; any information to be added to his bio should be submitted via the "Suggest any other correction or addition."
You could also request a transfer so you could add the information yourself. While he's out-of-guidelines and therefore the manager is not required to transfer him to you, Graves is a good person to work with and usually very willing to make transfers to family of all sorts.
Have a lovely week!

Hi, Amanda Caroline Huitt Lowe was my GGGrandmother; I am still trying to figure this out. Love your website; agree with you that John was the son of James. John B. Huitt had 4 slaves on the 1840 AR census, 2 female. When he died, Amanda was 15 and was given a guardian, John Cole, the very same Probate Judge and County Doctor. She was never a Cope, I just found this out. But wonder why she didn't go with family, she was 15; she could have stayed with Charlotte or Elizabeth, and John's other wife Martha didn't take her. I have more on this subject and would like to talk with you. Sent you an email, not sure you got it. Thanks again for your wonderful website and all you do at F.A.G. It is surely appreciated.

Thanks ..at least that provides me with the information as to why you had entered the one "l" in her name. Guess more research is in store. I appreciate your help with my query. Have a good day.

|Nick Lackland||Finding a grave|
I was wondering, if you could help me find a grave or how do I go about finding one if I went down there? I am looking to visit a friend. I didn't get to go to the funeral and I was wondering if you could help me?

Raymond was my first cousin and still has one sister living. His mother, my father's sister, had already died when the war happened. It was only in the past couple years that I found out he was buried in a cemetery for American soldiers in Belgium. My father had not told me that before and he died in 1984 around the time I first started on my Johansmann history.
I want to thank you so much for telling the story of what happened and for sharing the pictures you have. I had the obituary that was in our local paper but had never seen the battle scenes before. When I saw the body of my cousin next to your family member and read about the brutality of the German army I wept so deeply for what these young men and our families suffered in the loss of these young men. I have letters Raymond wrote to our grandmother and he was always so positive and joyful. He never said anything to make her worry.
Your work is so deeply appreciated.

You are welcome. I make mistakes myself more often that I would like to admit. When I enter I do it so fast sometimes then I get interrupted and forget to go back and check to see if it is okay. Have a Merry Christmas!

Regarding your photo entered for Thomas Wilson 1851-1932. In checking the tombstone it doesn't look like the dates match the information for this person. Also, the wife listed on the stone is Lucy B 1871-1943. Thomas' wife was Frances 1858-1916. Are you certain your photo is correct for this person?

Thank you for the wonderful tribute to my Grandpa Floyd, and yes, you may call him Grandpa Floyd (he would have liked that). He was a wonderful grandpa who told us many stories about his life here at home and abroad. My only regret is that I wish I would have video taped him telling them. I will be updating his bio and adding photos as time allows.

We need to honor him and all those who gave their lives for our country. It is still going on today...can't remember who it was that said, "Men make war while women weep"....but 22 is too young to die!

Hello, You are very welcome for the tribute. I honor the Greatest Generation all. Your mother was beautiful and he was a very handsome young man. Gone to soon for sure.
In regards to the Coast Artillery Corps, I am not an expert, but I believe the names of some of the CAC's were eventually changed to the AAA AW BN designations. My uncle was in the 778th AAA AW BN (SP) but entered the service into a CAC unit.
I have a book that has a bit of history on the 197th.
"Constituted 21 May 1942 in the Army of the United States as 2d Battalion, 509th Coast Artillery (Antiaircraft) and activated 10 November 1942 at Fort Bliss, Texas. Reorganized and redesignated 20 January as the 197th Coast Artillery Battalion (Antiaircraft) (Automatic Weapons). Redesignated 13 February 1943 as the 197th Antiaircraft Artillery Automatic Weapons Battalion. (Departed New York Port of Embarkation for overseas service 4 January 1944; arrived in England 8 January 1944 and landed on Omaha Beach, Normandy, France on 6 June 1944. Returned from overseas and arrived at the New York Port of Embarkation on 11 April 1946. Inactivated 12 April 1946 at Camp Kilmer, New Jersey.
Consolidated with 1st Battalion, 10th Coast Artillery and redesignated 28 June 1950 as the 10th Antiaircraft Artillery Battalion.
World War II
Normandy (with arrowhead)
French Croix de Guerre with Silver STar, World War II, Streamer embroidered Normandy Beachhead (197th AAA AW BN cited for action on 6 Jun 1944; DAGO 43, 1950
Coat of Arms
So my thoughts are that since he has what I think is a military marker approved by the military, they may have used his initial designation of entry as his unit...the Coast Artillery Corps.
And in case you don't have this...here is his partial enlistment information. Have you sent for his Individual Deceased Personnel File? If not, google it.
Good luck with your biography of this hero. Best regards, Andi

My pleasure, it's the least I could do for what Mr. Cash and many others did for me. Thank you for your time and effort to keep our family history alive. So many people are unappreaciative. I do appreciate all you do. Thanks again and God bless.

The possible stone with an "A" on it is Ella's marker. Just FYI

|Susan Ing||RE: Thanks again|
I put in all of the Burgdorf's buried there from the cemetery web-site and photo's only on the ones in that lot. Only 3 of them had personal markers. Sadly though, not Clara and her baby
Added by Susan Ing on Jan 11, 2011 2:02 PM
|StefanieB||Clara Burgdorf - possible photo|
We found what we believe to be Clara's stone in the cemetery today. It's extremely weathered, but the Burgdorf name and an "A" at the end of the first name are legible. Another clue we think it might be her stone: it's next to August & Wilhelmine Burgdorf's marker.
If you like I can send it to you for your review prior to posting it.
