Bio Photo Updated: December 2014

Chief Petty Officer, US Navy, retired.

Enjoying the fruits of my labors - children and grand children - to the best of my abilities.

Recently purchased an RV and traveling around North America.

If you have a problem with something I posted, please email me or click on suggest a correction instead of posting it on my contributor page. I will address the issue as quick as I possibly can.

The purpose in life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

One can tell the morals of a culture by the way they treat their dead. ~ Benjamin Franklin

To Err Is Human, To Correct Divine. If you come across any errors or have additions to the memorials I maintain, please let me know. I strive to provide accurate information and will be happy to make any changes necessary.

So many questions, yet, so few left to ask.


The wise man must remember that while he is a descendant of the past, he is a parent of the future. ~ Herbert Spencer

Our most treasured family heirlooms are our sweet family memories. ~ Unknown

Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. ~ Anonymous

"There are things that we don't want to happen but have to accept, things we don't want to know but have to learn, and people we can't live without but have to let go." ~ Author Unknown

"Lest they be forgotten."

"May they live forever."

"When an old person dies, a library burns..." African proverb

Life is not a journey to the grave, with the intention of arriving safely, in a well-preserved body. Rather to slide in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming.."WOW, that was a Great Ride!"

RE: Heinrich Carl

I got the information from my cousin, Ned Benson. He has a website where he has every member of our family tree listed with parents, children, burial information and alot more. This is the link to Heinrich's page

I can;t confirm if they are unmarked or not, but my cousin has done alot of research on the family and would probably be able to tell you more. His email is on the website if you want to contact him.

Jesse Warren
The information you have on Jesse Warren is incorrect. The Jesse Warren who was the son of Robert Warren and Judith Anderson was born 1747 Northampton County, North Carolina and died 1786 in Northampton County, North Carolina. This Jesse married Elizabeth Liles

The information you posted is for Jesse Warren son of Robert Warren and unknown wife. This Robert was the son of Allen Warren and Anne Hart.
This Jesse was born abt 1747 in Prince George County (later Dinwiddie County). He died 10 Feb. 1827 in Hancock County, Ga. and is buried in the Harper Cemetery.

If you wish more information or sources, please email me

I have photographed all of the 14000 Union headstones in Andersonville National Cemetery and have them on disk. I have the photo of Pvt. Keplinger which I can post now, however I will have to go to Andersonville for the rear but it will be a blank stone with no information or markings on it.

Kathy was my neighbor but I never met her.
I only found about her death from a neighbor.

RE: Duplicate Memorial

Thanks for being so understanding. Some people get upset when I bring it to their attention, but I'm just trying to prevent duplicate records. Even though I search before adding, I sometimes add duplicates as well. Thanks again!

re: Duplicate Memorial
I have deleted duplicate memorial. Thank you for bringing that to my attention, it is much appreciated. I am always careful on ensuring I don't add duplicates, don't know how this one escaped me!

Made most of your edits to the biographical section.
I leave the memorials reading like the tombstone and don't use estimated dates. But I did put it in the bio. section.
