My mother Bonnie Snider Jones (Contributor # 46930360), (Memorial # 121596827) was a six year contributor, and had extensively researched her family history, all the way back to the Mayflower, apparently. I have tried to fill in a few "gaps" in the family burial records.

Thomas Rankin
Ben, Unfortunately the only Rankin I have found who was an officer was N.P. Rankins. I do have 3 sources you might try. Sons of Confederate Veterans National, Broadfoot Publishing or Lynn Salsi. Lynn is with the Laura Wesson Chapter Order of the Confederate Rose. She is the best I know personally. Deo Vindice Gray Eagle

I haven't found his service record but will be glad to assist in your search. The honor of our Confederate ancestors is constantly under attack. It is our duty to defend it.

RE: Ken Schreiner
Hi Ken,

"High Richard.

Yes, I have some pictures and information, most of it provided by a gentleman named Rolland Swank. He is friends with George Wolters, who was another crew member (engineer) on their plane.

If you'll send me your e-mail address, I'll be happy to e-mail the documents that I have".

Thank you so much for your help. My email is:

Hi Ben,

Saw your note(below) on my Uncles memorial. Do you have any information, photos or anything about Ken's service during the war. I'm doing Family Genealogy and I can't seem to find anything.

My uncle "Bob" Jones was the tail gunner on Mr. Schreiner's plane in WW II. Remarkable they all lived through the war.

RE: Rankin and Jones
I'm not related to any of them.

Since you are, would you like for me to transfer them to you??? I'll be happy to do that.

Elizabeth (Lizzie) Fox Rankin Ryan
Someone else sent in her maiden name as Fox, so I've added that to her entry. (I think it was someone else).

I have her connected to both of her husbands, so she will still have the connection to the Rankin name also.

Interesting family history!! Maybe all of their kids can be found and connected to them eventually.

Thomas Rankin

I've corrected the entry so that Susan Elizabeth Close Rankin is shown as his first wife, and Elizabeth Rankin Ryan as his second wife.

I'm trying to figure out how Lizzie Fox got into the mix. Could she have been a third wife do you think??? Or could his second wife's maiden name have been "Fox", and the Rankin was from her husband, Thomas Rankin, and the Ryan from her second husband???

I notice that the parents of Mary Wharton Rankin Jones are listed as Thomas Rankin and Elizabeth Fox.

RE: Geo-tagging pictures
Well It took me a bit to figure out how to get it all to work and to add the info to the memorials but I got it. Thats it very cool! Thank you for the lesson.
