Obituaries are welcome and encouraged. They are a great help to genealogists and serve as excellent biographical place holders until family shows up to write an original, personalized biography.
Send the complete & unedited obituary, along with the date and name of publication, through the "Sugest any other" edit function. It will be placed on the memorial quickly.

RE: Murray at Holy Cross ?
When I went too the Cemetery and use the computor to search the names some of the Murray's had loctation and other didn't. I posted the names and dates given and hoping some family memebers are looking for them. I have to call the cemetery to get the other locations.

RE: Sect F & Christmas Time
yeah I wrote those down. I missed three from that section. They were at one end of the section and I was going to go back to it before I left. When I got home I realized that I had forgotten to go back. It started snowing while I was there. You could barely see the flakes, but they sky was completely gray so a lot of the pictures aren't that bright. Section 2H by the time I went there had so many people there so I wasn't able to get more then the two that I posted. I have them written down. Hopefully I have more success tomorrow :)
Thank you so much for the complement, it means a lot. Keep up the good work with everything that you are doing as well. It is greatly appreciated.
Best wishes to you and your family for the upcoming new year. I hope you have a wonderful holiday as well :)
Thank you for transferring my great-aunt Dorothy to me.

RE: Year End Thanks
Thanks so much Paul, for the kind words. I work in a service industry (Technology) where everyone thinks that money is the only motivator. So wrong, but you get it. I can see the work that you and others put in to bring the stories of the veterans to life, and to put together families again. I'm glad to help, however I can.

RE: 2014 at Bath
Wow! Thank you for the holiday greetings and the compliment regarding the photos.

We try to work in a trip or two during the winter, but it depends on the duration and quality of the thaws that occur. The first winter we did a trip with some heavy snow cover on the ground. The photos were good, but getting around was limited, and the window of opportunity was small with the low sun angle.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your family.

Will do them tomorrow, as the system is telling us we can't do them--it hasn't been a week yet.

RE: World War I Veteran
You are very welcome! It's my pleasure to find and photograph for people… especially veterans and babies… I try to photograph all that I see to document them… the veterans for their service to their country.. and the babies that so often are not even known by their family to have existed. I'm so glad that you documented Mr. Clair.. it was not noted that he was a veteran on his grave. The idea of the photo showing the wider view of the surrounding area is really a great one! I'm going to do that more often… it does add so much to the memorial… especially in such a large cemetery as this one!! If you know of more in Gate of Heaven that you need just let me know.. I live very close and love to get out and walk! Have a Merry Christmas! Blessings, Dana

Hello again. We just added another 22 photos. Not sure if we'll get out again tomorrow. The weather may get colder and snowy towards the end of the week.

Got all in the first one, but didn't get the last name in the second list. I forgot that I had requested a photo for one of the soldiers whose cenotaph I'd photographed (finally found where he was buried after a couple of years of looking).

Let me know when you need more.
