William H. Rossell (#15561495)
There is an error in the bio on his memorial page; Maj. Nathan B. Rossell was his older brother, not his father. His father was Maj. Zachariah Rossell (I have sent an edit linking William to his father).

Portrait of Forrester Lore Taylor
Dear Russ,
I am attempting to restore Forrester Lore Taylor's original portrait to his Find A Grave page, but was told I could not, because it was already replaced by another photograph last April and that only one portrait photograph is allowed. I don't know why the same criteria was not applied at that time, leaving the original in place. Would you please help me to restore his original portrait? Thanks for your understanding. Best regards, Melanie Taylor

George M. Harris (#28704574)
Your memorial seems to be for the same person as George M. Harris (#28681970), created a day earlier. Maybe the two memorials should be merged?

MOH John Mapes Adams 6404097
Russ Dodge,

The photo that is on your MOH John Mapes Adams memorial is not him. Also the image has been reversed. Probably taken from the photo is identified on Wikipedia as "This photograph is of my Grandfather, William Seach, who was awarded the Medal of Honor for his conduct during the Boxer Rebellion. This is a later photograph taken when he was an officer in the U.S.N. At the time of the Boxer Rebellion he was an Ordinary Seaman. He was born in London, England May 23, 1880 and was 20 years old when his bravery resulted in the Medal of Honor being awarded. He is buried in Arlington Cemetery."
