The majority of the memorials I have created, were done as a result of taking a photo of the monument. Many times, these old stones are difficult to read, so I do the best I can with what I see.

I inherited a large group of memorials located in Sherburne's West Hill Cemetery. Many of them are incomplete or need editing. I welcome any valid info that you might be able to supply.

If you have additional info to any of my memorials, please use the auto edit tab or suggestion box or email. I will get to them when I can.

Thank you.

RE: memorials/obits
I know you are busy from photos on Facebook for one. That is fine. At least I know they will go on left with you. Enjoy your grands. The others aren't going anywhere! :0)

RE: Floyd Leach
You are very welcome, Diane. You may recall that my Aunt Evelyn Tull Martin was married to Edna Leach Martin's son Robert. Edna is mentioned in the obit. A. Evelyn has loaned this scrapbook to me. It is a gold mine. Daryl

Re Thomas birth years.
Her obit states 1938 and that coordinates with her age at death. Just looked up his obit online and sent it to you. His birth year is listed as 1935. Somebody goofed.

RE Paino
Wasn't sure I had the right one because of the death date on already, but seemed to fit. Perhaps there will be a longer one.
Have enjoyed seeing your family photos on Facebook.
Keep enjoying your summer.

John C Lee Jr

The Battle for Castle Itter in the Austrian North Tyrol village of Itter was fought on 5 May 1945, in the last days of the European Theater of World War II.

Troops of the 23rd Tank Battalion of the 12th Armored Division of the US XXI Corps led by Captain John C. "Jack" Lee, Jr., a number of Wehrmacht soldiers, and recently freed French VIPs defended Castle Itter against an attacking force from the 17th SS Panzergrenadier Division until relief from the American 142nd Infantry Regiment of the 36th Division of XXI Corps arrived.

The French prisoners included former prime ministers, generals and a tennis star. It may have been the only battle in the war in which Americans and Germans fought side-by-side. Popular accounts of the battle have called it the "strangest" battle of World War II.

Perfect! Thank you!!! I have written admin at Findagrave so many times I give up. Something is obviously wrong with the system.

You are welcome!
You have a great weekend with your lovely family. I enjoy seeing your photos.

I saved a bunch of Evening Sun obits from 2012. Just to forewarn you that I may be sending. :0)

Re Holley family
Thank you for the corrections. I added Dad Paris to all 3 children as edits. Hopefully they go through correctly this time.
BTW I spent hours on the Gales in McDonough yesterday adding info from my tree. That Gale cemetery had interested me in the past and sure enough there were links. My Uncle Edward Gale is the connection to them. There is a missing generation on Find A Grave of another Stephen Gale, but I don't know where he is buried. I might do a virtual grave to create the link.
Thank you for all you do.
