Edgar A Brown

Thank you for searching for and photographing the grave of Edgar Allen Brown at the Los Angeles National Cemetery. I very much appreciate your taking the time to do this for me. I am hoping to post a copy of your photo in my personal genealogy, if you do not mind. I will certainly give you the credit.

Again many thanks.

Pvt Henry Wilson Memorial# 80802333
I want to thank you for posting the picture on Pvt Wilson's memorial. I had been having trouble getting a photo because I was told some one else was buried in the plot given. It was not until you posted the picture of Henry Lee's tombstone that I checked his plot location, here is what I found:

Lee is listed buried in Plot: 33, 9 RW E

Wilson in Plot: Section: 33 Row E Site 9

They must be the same plot! I had previously researched Henry Lee, he does not appear on the Roster of the 97th Pa. Infantry but does have a Pension card listing him in the 97th. There is also a Henry Lee in the 197th Ohio Infantry. Lee was from Ohio, but married in Pennsylvania and lived there awhile.

Henry Wilson is definitively carried on the rolls of Company C, 97th Pa. Infantry. And listed by the National Grave Locater as buried in Los Angeles National Cemetery at the above site. There is a Henry Lee listed on the National Graves Locater for Los Angeles, but he was born in 1896 and died in 1966-- not the Henry Lee of Civil War age.

One last thing Henry Wilson and Henry Lee died on the same day and year July 12, 1925. I am inclined to believe either the veterans grave records are wrong, or Henry Wilson changed his name name to Lee and he is not the Henry Lee from Ohio.

It may be a mystery we will never solve- but thanks to you I now know the reason I could not get a photo for Wilson!

On behalf of the David Dupont Beveridge family, we offer our profound gratitude for the photo of Uncle Fred's headstone. You have volunteered your time to help us and we are grateful. Because of this, Uncle Fred has now been linked to his wife, Marie. I hope you don't mind that I also posted your photo to her memorial but proper credit was given.
THANK YOU! and God Bless You!

Thanks, Jeff! I really appreciate you taking the time and effort to find this vet's headstone for me and then taking and posting the picture! I never knew where he was buried and did not know he was buried in a different cemetery than my great grandmother until recently. Thanks again! Susan

Photo Request Fulfilled
Jeff - Thank you so much for such a quick response to my request to have a photo taken of my great-granfather's (David Strouse) grave/headstone at the Los Angeles National Cemetery.

This was the first time I have ever made a request for a photo and the speed with which it was fulfulled amazes me.

Thank you again from his grandchildren, great- grandchild and great-great grand child.
Cheers from Michigan!

Ralph Walton and Elizabeth Smith Stewart
I cannot tell you how grateful I am for the picture you took of Elizabeth Smith Stewart headstone. As it turned out I got a twofer as her husband's information was listed as well. Because of this we now know what happened to Ralph Walton Stewart. Most people in the family had his date of death as 1949. But with your picture we now know differently. The other thing I could not believe is how fast you were in getting the picture and uploading it. Thanks for all of your time and work.

RE: Photo Request for Nancy Whitaker
Hi Jeff, Thank you for your offer but I think it would be better to have no picture (or one of the ground next to her husband's stone), than to have a photo of his stone on her page. Thanks for checking with me. I'll remove my request. Catherine

Mr. Jenkins,
You have no idea how much this picture means me and my siblings. Although we were born in Los Angeles, we never visited our grandfathers grave site.
Thank you very much,

RE: Thank you!
Thank you! He was Perry Cullen Glass the first. There are three. Perry fought in WWI. He was poisoned by nerve gas. His doctors in NJ told him to move to a drier climate for his lungs so he packed up his wife and my one year old grandfather and headed west. The car broke down in Hollywood so they stayed there. Great Grampa Perry couldn't work. Grampa Perry supported the family as a child actor in Our Gang and in movies with Jackie Cooper. Great Grampa Perry was only 30 when he passed away.

Thank you so much for taking this picture of my great-grandfather's grave! There's a lot of mystery on that branch of the family so I appreciate it. Do you mind if I add the photo to my family tree? I always make sure to give photographer's credits.
