Please help with
"Veterans Grave Preservation"
we are cleaning up the old cemeteries in the area with hopes of documenting all of the American War Veterans buried here in our towns. With the 150th Anniversary of the of the Civil War and the 70th anniversary of WWII, several memorial events are taking place around the country. Boys and Girls Scouts, High School seniors and anyone interested can sign up for community service and give back a little something to those who came before and paved the way. This is our way of saying Thank You and giving respect where respect is due while taking a historical tour back in time. Go to your nearest American Legion or VFW Post and ask if you can help.
I am sure everyone will enjoy navigating the pages of history. Photos and stories, names and dates, friends and loved ones, you will connect the present with the past in more ways than one.
A pleasure ...

|JHM||RE: HORACE G. KIMBLE|
Thanks Lisa, I can probably add a few comments on Horace's bio, but nothing of real significance. Or proven really, I will try resending the original message I sent you although it looks like I had the address I used, I must look carefully. Again my thanks. Perhaps there will be a family photo or a cousin, that could fill in some blank spots for me, as you have already done

Lara, the email address that I used to write wasn't valid, where can I send you note of thanks and some information on this gentleman, I believe to be my husband's maternal grandfather.

That is so kind of you! I am sorry but it was not me that sponsored their memorials. If you want to send me the memorial numbers I am willing to help as much as I can.
You are awesome to do this!
|Robin Arvickson||RE: Ward Post GAR OB Seaman|
Thank you very much for all your help!! I appreciate it.
|Robin Arvickson||RE: Oscar Seaman|
Did you purchase the picture of the grave? The picture of Oscar himself was put on by another contributor and I'm contacting him regarding that picture. I just want to make sure I give credit where credit is due!
|Robin Arvickson||Oscar Seaman|
I'm working on a volume of grave locations for veterans of Co. M, 15th NY Heavy Artillery. Could I have your permission to use the pictures you posted of Oscar Seaman's grave in this compilation? I will cite you as the source.

|lolo1951||RE: Red Men Cemetry|
Laura, I do not remember if they were side by side - but size, shape, and coloring of stones are similar. My normal methodology for photographing a cemetery is to include a "Family" stone if one is available and then the individual stone - placing both on Find A Grave. I didn't indicate any relationship between Martin Murray or Anna Murray, so nothing was found onsite to indicate there may have been one. I would need to make another trip to the cemetery to find your answer. I am currently out of state for awhile. If you need sooner, I'd suggest a request for photo and include what you are looking for. If you can wait, I will go to cemetery when I return from travel. Good luck with your research - and thanks for being a Find A Grave volunteer.

Hi Laura...Any chance you know where the birthdate for Celia came from? I have a SAR application with her listed with the birthdate of 9 May 1844. I have however, found this application to have other errors on it as well as some correct information, so I am trying to discern which is which.
