DO YOU HAVE VETERAN W/NO HEADSTONE?

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) furnishes upon request, at no charge to the applicant, a Government headstone or marker for the unmarked grave of any deceased eligible Veteran in any cemetery around the world, regardless of their date of death.

For eligible veterans that died on or after Nov. 1, 1990 and whose grave is marked with a privately purchased headstone, VA may also furnish a headstone or marker to supplement the graves or a Medallion to be affixed to a privately purchased headstone.

Flat markers in granite, marble, and bronze and upright headstones in granite and marble are available. Bronze niche markers are also available to mark columbaria used for inurnment of cremated remains. The style chosen must be permitted by the officials in charge of the private cemetery where it will be placed.

CORRECTIONS AND TRANSFERS

My belief is that family members, however distant, make the most caring managers of memorials.

I WELCOME all corrections, and with a few exceptions, I am happy to transfer any of the memorials I have created - on to those who have a relationship, or historical interest.

My own ancestors, family, friends, local memorials, and special history interests, I do maintain in my care.

I'd be happy to fulfill your photo requests if you can call the cemetery, obtain the grave locations, and let me know them. -Ken

Mrs William K Vanderbilt
Hi;
I found obits and other things but nothing that tells where she is buried. My best guess would be she is with her husband William at:

Moravian Cemetery
New Dorp
Richmond County (Staten Island)
New York, USA
Plot: Vanderbilt Mausoleum

He has already been connected to your listing for her.

Best

Tom

RE: ah-oh
So then I went to see if I could find more on him on Ancestry and he has another memorial in AZ, with some interesting information on his death. 134504765. Since his interment was 14 months after his death and his partner Gilbert is also found in Conn, I think their bodies were sent home. I sent a note to the manager of the Az memorial and will happily transfer it to him/her but don't want to delete mine until I hear from him/her

LOL, okay so I can believe "Apaches" in Arizona, but NOT in PR. Thanks for the help
Yeah, I go to Discussions and all these posts about transfers and duplicates, what does it matter.

James Holmes
I've taken photos of all the gravestones at St. George's and matched up the ones that could be figured out. The rest are too worn. Sad to say, I don't think anyone can get one of James Holmes.

Rev. Barton
Georgia, you are certainly welcome. I truly enjoy searching for families for this reason. I will check back in maybe two months to see if his name is on the memorial. If not I will inquire about it:)
The older lady that assisted me said so many nice things about your Uncle. She also said he was well respected in the community and had many visitors when he was at RWC in Irvington.
Have a great day!

Reverend George Barton~Grace Epis. Church
Georgia,
I went by the church to take a picture for you but I was told that Rev. Barton was cremated and his name was not yet added on the memorial plaque.
Hope this helps.
Have a great day:)
