Hi Ginny,

You have a nice double headstone photo attached to George Winger #137524038. I was wondering if you would be so kind as to post the same photo to his wife's memorial?

request for memorial transfer
129064071 - Arvid was my great aunt's husband and my great aunt recently passed away couple of days ago. I was able to create her memorial to be linked to Arvid. I would like to overview his memorial as well. Arvid was last in his line and They have no children. He was awesome uncle to my mother and others. Now, Lela is back with him in heaven once again. Thank you.

Dear Ginny Lee,

my name is Erwin de Mooij and I am the content webmaster for the 457th Bomb Group Association website.

At this moment I am working on a virtual cemetery/memorial on the website honering all 339 KIA/MIA/KIS of the group.

I saw your picture of Earl Markwalder's grave marker and I was wondering if I could use it for the memorial. If you made any other photos of 457th BG members would I be able to use these too?

We would greatly appreciate it.

Best regards,

Erwin de Mooij

RE: Hannah (Farrow) Gilmore # 90924421
Many thanks for checking the cemetery records for Robert Gilmore. I'm almost certain he's buried there, but it looks like the sexton's plat book won't be much help in proving it. The mystery endures!

RE: Hannah (Farrow) Gilmore # 90924421
I would be indebted to you if you could find Robert Gilmore's grave. I spoke with family elders who were alive in 1918 when Robert died, and they are insistent that he is buried with or near his wife, Hannah. This has been an enduring mystery in my family for a long time, and I'd like to finally resolve it. Why Robert's name isn't inscribed on the elaborate marble monument is yet another mystery. His children were well-fixed, so to speak, so their failure to place his name on the monument wasn't based on a lack of financial resources. Many thanks for whatever help you can give in getting to the bottom of this.

Hannah (Farrow) Gilmore # 90924421
Many thanks for posting the beautiful monument photo last year. I've been trying to get a picture for quite a long time, so was pleasantly surprised to see it on the Find A Grave memorial during a random check. By chance, is the name of her husband, Robert Hamilton Gilmore, also inscribed on the monument? He's buried with (or near) her, but I've encountered difficulty getting precise lot/plot info. Can you help? If so, I'd be indebted.

RE: Margaret Alexander Martin
I wanted her maiden name on there instead of her middle name. You can keep it on if you would like. As she was married twice her name is actually Margaret Canterbury Alexander Blu Martin. I didn't know how to put both of her married names on there. You can do what you would like I really wasn't sure what to do here. She had 3 children by each husband. I only have the names of the Blu's as she was my great great grandmother my mother was a Blu.

I will update picture as soon the gravestone get engraved with date of death within a month... I would like to maintain all reetz's memorials in Amity cemetery.

August Doc Reetz
I want to say apologizes that I must have to leave message here. I just want to let you know I already created memorial for August "Doc" Reetz. I was not able to locate his grave until I paid visit to Amity cemetery in early April and found his grave nearby other Reetz 's plots. Reetz family are on my grandma's family... I wasn't able to update the information that he is buried in Amity, not in Floral Hill... I also want to say many thank you for update all of reetz's pictures with gravestones I was going to post all pictures that I took as well..
back to the point, We cannot have two memorials on same person. so what we should do? I already added all siblings to Doc's memorial that I created..
