Bio and Links
Bio Photo      I enter records here on Find A Grave for two reasons: First to help others find the graves of lost family members and second to remember our War Hero's who have "Given Their All" for our country!

If you'd like me to fix any of the records that I maintain ... please click on the "Edit" button on the top right of the record, click on "Suggest a Correction" ... Enter your note and/or correction and I'll fix them as quickly as possible.

When requesting a transfer use the edit tab on the memorial and follow the below from F-A-G. Or the request will be ignored.

From F-A-G

"Explain your relationship in the request! Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc) are not required to be transferred. Keep in mind that the original contributor may also be related to the memorial and may not make the transfer. Bulk surname requests should not be made."

     I'm currently working on updating and entered Soldiers and Sailors who "Gave Their All" during World War II. To see more on this project please click on my website below...

     I originally started researching my Family Tree when my oldest son, Chris, came home from school one day and said that they had to write up their family tree as a project. This, of course, led me to many cemeteries and I quickly became interested in them also.

     I've always enjoyed history and the two fell together.

     Again, If I've created a record that someone needs deleted (since some families do not want their loved ones on the internet) or that you want me to update please let me know and I'll be glad to update it for you.

I added photos to his Find A Grave page. Did not see your note re: there being a flat marker until after I took the photo. When I found the gravesite, I did not see a flat marker - will be going back to the cemetery soon & will double check the area again

Best regards

My Dear Mr. Pickett,

Thank you, thank you, thank you for putting this information on the Internet. I spent the bulk of the Spring and Summer registering my Uncle Herb in Washington at the Library of Congress with the Veteran's History Project.

Your information is accurate. Although I never met my Uncle, my mother was his closest sibling and adored him as did his other siblings. So this is for her as well.

God bless you for doing this noble work!

I found Henry's parents. I was so excited to see HENRY O'HARA that I didn't notice the dates. I will go back to St. Lawrence O'Toole and look around...I'm sure Henry, jr. is near them.
Could you please attach his parents: His father, Henry 132413609 and his mother, Mary 132413696. I'll get back to you...
