S/Sgt Lawrence E. Rider
S/Sgt Lawrence E. Rider was a crewmember on board of a B-25 Mitchel bomber. On 5 July 1943 the bomber took part in a bomb mission to Gerbini airfield in eastern Sicily.

The plane received a direct hit by German FLAK and crashed against the slope of a moutain, killing all on board. One of the crewmembers was Sergeant Rider, your uncle.

he was buried in grave I-101-1204 in the temporary American GELA Cemetery in Sicily as a group burial. After the war the crew's remais were repartiated and buried in grave E-246 in the Zachary Taylor National Cemetery, KY.

I am writing a book about the temporary GELA Cemetery and hope to finish it this year.

You posted a picture of your uncle on the site

Can I have your permission to use the picture for my project, of course you will be credited and notified when the book is finished.

Doy you perhaps have a group picture of his crew or of the airplane ?

thank you

Thanks for taking and posting the photo of her gravestone. I had seen two different birth years for her, so I wanted to see what was on her stone to know which was correct. I really do appreciate it!

RE: Jonathon/Innocent Phillips
Hello Gary,

All done. I filled in the stats & made some further connections. I'm not only a member of this church, which the cemetery belongs to, but I am related to the lions share of those buried in the older sections of the cemetery via. direct and collateral lineages. Hope your trip up north yielded some Great Genealogical Gleanings.

The Best to You and Yours, Butterfly~Kisses

Thank you!
You are so helpful! And successful! Your Mountain Creek grave hunting and the photos you share contribute greatly to family history. Sometimes, these old stones provide that last bit of information we need. Thank you again, for all your wonderful help.
