Bio and Links
Bio Photo I will be happy to take photos, especially of the brave men and women resting or memorialized at Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery.

My father, Sgt William Edward Crowley, was killed 15 July 1944 when his B-24 collided with another B-24 while on a bombing mission over Yap Island. I was 10 months old. While he is memorialized on the Wall of the Missing in Manila American Cemetery, I arranged a marker be placed in Fort Rosecrans so I can "visit" him near my home in downtown San Diego.

I become fond of the people whose graves I visit and photograph. It's rewarding. There's a serenity about the experience.

My Ancestors I'm researching include:
CROWLEY, FARRELL, WARD (Ireland to Kingston, Ontario, to Chicago);
EDWARDS, BRYAN, ARNOLD, MCCRANIE, NORRIS (Florida, Alabama, NC and Georgia)

Happy Memorial Day
I wanted you to see the history I found on my ancestor Charles Vickers. Please read his page when you get a minute.

I know you honor our fallen heroes so I wanted you to know the success I had in finding out his story.

Hope you are well.

RE: Lena Cadarett
Yes, I had also asked for the transfer so I guess they were done together. I really appreciate the transfer because I've been in touch with Lena's daughter and we've been exchanging a lot of data about our sides of the family. She will enjoy being able to contribute to Lena's bio and linking other family members. Thanks!
