Hello Fellow Gravers!!!
I am working with a wonderful group of volunteers called IWPP (International Wargraves Photography Project). What we are doing is cross-checking the uploads and correcting any errors and duplicates made on National Cemeteries. This is a major ongoing project and if you can find time to help assist us it would be greatly appreciated.
National Cemeteries completed as of 2013:
Arkansas State Veterans Cemetery Cross County, Arkansas
CNMI Veterans Cemetery Marpi, Saipan
Delaware Veteran Memorial Cemetery New Castle County, DE
Delaware Veterans Memorial Cemetery Sussex County, DE
Fort Custer National Cemetery Kalamazoo County, MI

Suggestions & Corrections: Please make sure your Memorial # is listed along with an explanation. If your correspondence is RUDE in any way, it will be ignored. This site was created to help others, not to criticize, harass or bully. Be kind to your fellow volunteers, since we are all trying to achieve the same goal of helping others on the amazing website!
If your correction is not completed within a couple of days do not send a second request. Find A Grave has a thirty day policy to have your corrections honored and as the Guidelines state Have Patience it will get done.
Transfers: For the most part I adhere to the four generation rule (siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren). I will not transfer bulk surname requests so please do not ask Transfer Request Guidelines.
If you do not want the memorial transferred but have accurate information to add, I will be more than happy to add it and credit you with the information.

Cyndi, Thank you so much for the memorial # 467428 of my father, Jack K. Carpenter and all you work at Fort Snelling in MN. I was so thankful to find it and I would like it to be transferred to me if this is the proper way to request. God Bless you, Sharyn Carpenter Herian
Hey you - I checked at the cemetery for these two but there's no listing for either of them. I didn't know if you wanted a photo of the flower bed, so I left them up. Hope you have a wonderful holiday!

Thank you Cindy,
That was extremely kind of you!
Have a Great Thanksgiving weekend.
I will just paste the obit here:
Here is the obit I mentioned in the Edit tab request for Thomas Bolton #94749479:
Class of 1833 -THOMAS BOLTON was born at Scipio, N.Y., 29 October, 1809. He was prepared for college at the school on Temple Hill, Geneseo, N.Y., kept by Seth Sweetser, C.C. Felton, and H.R. Cleveland. He entered college, with his friend Kelly, after the winter vacation, in February, 1830. He had a respectable rank as a scholar, and took a lively interest and prominent part in all that concerned the class. After graduation, he read law a while in the office of John C. Spencer, Esq., Canandaigua, N.Y. He was admitted to the bar at Cleveland, Ohio, in September, 1835. After a business connection of about a year with James L. Conger, Esq., he sent for his classmate and friend, Moses Kelly, and the two formed a partnership in the autumn of 1836, which lasted till 1856, when Mr. Bolton was elected one of the judges of the Court of Common Pleas. This office he held for ten years. After his retirement from the bench in 1866, he devoted himself to the care of a large property. He died suddenly, 1 February, 1871, of neuralgia of the heart. Judge Bolton was twice married. His first wife, whom he married 7 September, 1837, was Elizabeth L. Cone, who died 26 January, 1846. By her he had five children: Festus Cone, born 7 June, 1838, died 8 February, 1839; Thomas Kelly, born 25 March, 1840 (H.C. 1861); Festus Cone, born 12 January, 1844; James Henry, born 20 January, 1846, graduated at Western Reserve, 1866, LL.B. at Harvard, 1869. He married, 1 December, 1846, Emmeline Russell, by whom he had two children: George Russell, born 31 January, 1851, died 9 September, 1859; Charles Chester, born 23 March, 1855.
Judge Bolton was a man of great energy and force of character, peremptory and decisive both at the bar and on the bench, social and companionable with his friends, by whom he was much beloved, but with a certain sternness of manner in the common intercourse of life, which prevented him from being generally popular. The resolutions adopted by the Cleveland bar after his death, and the speeches made on that occasion, showed the strong sense which was felt of his ability and worth.

I am a decendent of Thomas's parents, via his sister Eleanor Bolton Smead.
