Bio and Links
Bio Photo In my pre-teen years, my grandmother and I would go for walks in the cemetery close to her home. It was a history lesson for me as she would tell me about the lives of her family and friends buried there.
My goal is to link as many memorials as I can and provide pictures to help future generations find their ancestors. If you find any mistakes please Email me and I will make corrections.

Hi Mike,

Thank you for posting the picture of Sarah E. Ford's headstone. Are you related to her? She and her husband David are my great great grandparents. I have been trying to trace his Ford family.

Captain Curtis S. Griffin
Captain Curtis S. Griffin was on board of a bomber from the 67th Bomb Squadron, 44th Bomb Group. His plane participated in a bombing raid over Sicily on 14 July 1943. The plane never returned to her base. Captain Griffin is listed on the Walls of Missing of the Sicily Rome Cemetery in Nettuno, Italy.

You posted his picture on I would like to ask your permission to use that picture for my project about the temporary American GELA Cemetery in Sicily, where over 1,200 men and women were buried between July 1943 and April 1947. If his remains would have been found, he would have been buried at Gela.

I have my project available on a DVD, titled "They stayed behind".

Of course you will be credited

RE: Brooks Grave Pictures
You're very welcome. Did you see Cora Ellen Brooks was added? I assume she was the daughter of Cora and Nathan. If I'm wrong, I'll de-link her to them.

Best regards.

RE: Cora Brooks
Oh good. I had found a family tree that listed him as buried in Old Tacoma. So if you were related, I was going to tell you about that. Glad you are finding out for sure from the cemetery. Get a location if you can as I go there every once in awhile and would be glad to look for marker for them both. There was a big project down last year to photograph markers but they either didn't find any for them, didn't come across the section they are in or they don't have markers.

Thanks for the info.
