Bio and Links
Bio Photo We completed a survey of all known cemeteries in McMinn County plus transcribed McMinn County death certificates from 1914-1955.
Surnames we are reseaching: Marvin's lineage = Templin, Click, Bryant, Sisk, Smith, Waddell, Gross. Samme's lineage = Carpenter, Simpson, Hutsell, Julian, Warren
Whenever we go out to fill a request, we try to take photos of a few of the surrounding burials. Never know when you might help someone find a lost relative. We also take tombstone pictures of any veterans we see, as we try to honor ALL VETERANS regardless of when they served.
A big "THANK YOU" to all the Find-A-Grave volunteers who have taken tombstone pictures for us.
We are always working on adding veterans to national cemeteries. Our way of honoring our veterans.
***** When asking for a memorial transfer, PLEASE PLEASE use "Edit" then "Suggest A Correction" instead of posting message here. Thanks*****

Hi, I am requesting that you transfer care of my grandfathers cousin to my care. I have added a picture of him, and updated some birth and death information for you. He and my grandfather were friends and family in the LA area during the 1950's.
Thank you for your consideration in this matter,
Cathy Rampke Finney

Record #: 82597729
Hi there,

The note included for this person's record makes reference to his father, but the spelling for the father is incorrect. The correct spelling is: Paul Harrison Ryan.

Thanks very much for your attention to this request for correction.

RE: Raymond Rothhar
Not a problem. Seems at some point an local volunteers dried up as there were many requests even with some 2-3 years old. Glad I can work on the list. The vegetation on the north side of their stone s a bit obliterating as you can see. I may try to go back when it's cooer and try to delicately trim the excess away.

Re: Sergeant WHITBREAD ( 68872822 )
My thanks to you for transferring your memorial page for RAF Sergeant Dennis Lawson Whitbread over to me. I'd be pleased to re-transfer it back to you after I've added further military service information re: this airman. Just let me know. And, thanks again. Regards.

John Harold James
Mr/Ms. Templin: I'm a staff writer for the Palm Beach Post in West Palm Beach, Fla. We're writing a piece on the February 1956 military crash at what's not Palm Beach International Airport that killed five people, including John Harold James, whose grave at Golden Gate National Cemetery you surveyed. Do you have ANY leads to relatives, friends, associates, or anyone who would have a photograph of M.Sgt. James. We worked the databases for days without luck. It's just too common a name. Thanks in advance for whatever help you can provide. My direct phone is 561 820 4418. Thanks.

I'd like to use the photo you've taken of William E. Bond, Memorial # 3553634 on my family history website at the URL below. William is my father's uncle.

You have 2 memorials, in different cemeteries, with the same name & dates. See 155615282 & 156562551

Just wondering if these are the same folks; didn't see plot numbers to compare.

Please check
