Bio and Links
Bio Photo Recently, I became interested in my family lineage and have been striving to fill in the blanks. Someone pointed me to to find where a distant relative was buried. I submitted a request and within a couple of days, I had a photo of the marker that showed me that the relative was awarded the Bronze Star and Purple Heart in WWII. With this information, I was able to determine where he served and other information about him.

Since a FindaGrave contributor made the effort to acquire the photo that provided me with so much information, I felt that I needed to pay it forward in order to help others in their searches.

Hopefully, my efforts will help others who will volunteer and the Find a Grave community will grow.

Thank you much for the picture. I think it would be nice keep it even when one could be taken once the final picture is taken months from now. I happen not to have known her. I appreciate your sentiment. I'm sure many are missing her greatly.

Thank you so much for the diligent work you did to locate my relative's stone. It must have been a tedious job and your efforts will be recognized in my Ancestry Tree.

RE: Abigal Hodge Davison

No I haven't, but my fiancee grew up in Crawford Co. I will ask him. He was visiting his Mom there last week and brought home the Hatch transcription for me to work on.

George Austin Byrne
i am working on a 4th cousin's family, George was their son.

you posted a picture for margaret kennedy to george austin byrne Find A Grave Memorial# 450105

her stone says "his wife" but onyl has name as margaret kennedy, and there is a record for her Find A Grave Memorial# 450187 as margaret kennedy byrne

he was a 2d Lt US Army, and the note on her stone has Major, US Army. not sure if that is supposed to mean she was a major, or if her spouse was a major and she is in the cemetery due to his service.

census records up to 1940 and 1942 WWII draft record have george as single.

when you took the pic was stone for george actually next to her? perhaps a kennedy stone was on the other side?
