Bio and Links
Bio Photo With much of my immediate family growing in and around the Washington D.C area for generations, I was never overly curious about family history. After a friend who was more interested than I found photos of relatives gravesites in other states who were born during the time of Andrew Jackson I was amazed. Even a marker for my grandmother's unnamed infant son which I had seen in home movies had been photographed by someone.
I am most familiar with Arlington Cemetery, Oak Hill and Cedar Hill Cemetery on Pennsylvania Avenue. I have taken many photos for my own enjoyment and for friends over the years, but realize others are often not so near.

RE: Leo & Brother
Wow, this is wonderful news, Michael, all the
markers will receive a Christmas wreath. God
bless all who contributed funds for the wreaths.

The photo's have been saved twice to make sure
I have them. The photos looks so elegant, every
one of them. You are an artist with your camera.

I will check back time to time as you suggested.

Soon I will mail the photos you took and send them to Leo's, daughter. Just need to find out
how to print the photos, on smaller paper, need
to experiment.

The more I learn from the history channel on TV
the more I appreciate the sacrifices of the veterans.

Tomorrow I will say a prayer at Mass, for your Grandfather, and the Cox brothers.

I have letters written from Walter to Leo, when
Leo, was at the VA hospital. It is a neat gift to have the photos.

RE: Wive's at Arlington

Memorial Day: Why No Arlington for Dogs?
May 27, 2011



This answered my question.

I can't imagine how hard it is to be in battle
and lose friends and also a dog. A Dog may have
been the thing that pulled a soldier through the war.

There should be a grave spot for Military dogs
(not at Arlington) but at another location.

If you wish to post Leo and his brother's, photo, later, I think it would tie nicely with your crisp clear photo's.

Your photo's tell a story.

RE: Wive's at Arlington

Thank-you for opening my mind.

I need to make plans in the middle of April
to visit. I imagine that is when the Cherry Blossoms bloom.

Ate there any military dogs at the cemetery?

I imagine since the military dogs played a
role in helping the troops, the dogs would
also be considered veterans, in way.

I enjoyed you walking me through about the markers
how when the sun shines when the names are visible. I will remember that when I visit.

RE: Celestine Cox
Celestine's memorial looks elegant.
I like it just the way it is,

Leo's, photo's, are beautiful, the arrangement
says everything, I want everything, exactly as it is.

I am trying to figure why Celestine is at
Arlington. It does not sit right with me,
when soldiers who served should be there.

I am thinking she made his life peaceful, and
I will accept that as why she is there.

Thank-you, Mr. Walsh, there is a sense of peace.

RE: Celestine Cox
Yes, Thank-you, Mr. Walsh, the management
sounds good.

How exactly does that work, please?

Celestine cox, is Mr. Cox's, second wife, and what a fitting tribute to have the couple together on findagrave.

His first wife,Peggy, was born in England, he married, when he was in the service. I believe Peggy (her name) returned to England and died in her homeland.

This is Celestine (Mrs) and Mr. Leo Cox

Thank-you for all you do for the Veterans,
you give joy through your mesmerizing work.

RE: Leo Cox

Thank-you, Mr. Walsh, for giving me permission
to copy your work.

I find your photographs soothing. Mr. Leo Cox,
has found peace, people who care and appreciate
his service.

I am going to look up his daughter and find
a way to mail your photographs of her father,
to her.

If you would like to put Mr. Leo Cox's, photo,
with your photography collection, I think he would like that.

The only thing he would like better is probably a beer. :)

You have found a great calling with taking your photographs of veterans and veteran events. I loved the perspective in photo.

RE: Leo Cox
Thank-you, Mr. Walsh.

Your photo is beautiful, as it is with the deep
blue sky as a backdrop. You clearly show everything engraved in the stone. I don't how you could top
the top, it crisp, clear, and so respectful.

I will look again at the photo to see main, T.Y.

Leo J. Cox, enlisted in the army.

I am trying to figure out what his Company's mission, was in the war. Google books (google on-line) has a few mentions in books on his
Unit. I will keep researching on what exactly
they did, bridges? I have been watching the military channel and the war was so nail biting.
