Bio Photo There is a word for men that lose their wives, wives that lose their husbands, children that lose their parents.

There is no word for a mother who loses her child...


If I have created a memorial for a family member of yours, don't hesitate to request a transfer.

Any photo I have posted on Find a Grave is intended to be used.... Please feel free to use them in personal use and documentation.

Searching means finding the other entry, even though it may contain an error and working together means sending an edit.

Links, Corrections, Transfers and/or additional information
If you will please use the "Edit" tab located on each memorial, I will be more than happy to correct, edit or add information to a memorial that is meaningful. I will not add all of the information from the past ten census records that have been released or any distasteful or disturbing messages.

Find a Grave does not require that I search the entire Find a Grave system globally, only the individual cemeteries in which I am adding to. Please do not move your Burial Unknown into the correct cemetery based on the information you found from my memorial & then demand that I delete my duplicate. For further information on this, please refer to how Find a Grave handles duplicate memorials.

Lastly and most importantly
There are so many absolutely wonderful people that use Find-A-Grave! I am very appreciative for all of the suggested corrections, additional information and photos that have been provided. Please don't allow the rude, abusive and sometimes rather bizarre behavior of individuals to curb your enthusiasm or your want to help others.


"Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!"

- Hunter S. Thompson

RE: vadm Edwed Holmes Martin
I saw several Handley memorials in Fort ROSECRANS< BUT NO albert or Lillias. I will see whether I can match the names in, but without more detail I have small hope.

RE: vadm Edwed Holmes Martin
Thanks. The Handley names are unfamiliar to me. I will check my "1953 classmates" virtual cemetery, although I am pretty sure that he is not my classmate, I have quite a few classmates in Fort Rosecrans, as many retired to Coronado and La Jolla. Ed was my Late first wife's first cousin but a year behind me at Navy. He started his flight training at Pensacola well before I did, as I delayed for a year's sea duty first in a destroyer, while he went right away after graduation He did very well and his six years "in jail" in Hanoi did not set him back at all.

Ed was my first wife's first cousin and a class (1954) ahead of me at USNA. He gave our daughter ger first baby present, a hooded blanket. A Naval Aviator he was four or five years "in jaul" in Hanoi. After his liberation he rose to be Commander 6th Fleet and subsequently Deputy Chief of Naval Operationd for Air Warfare.

Hello Linda,
Thank you very much for the transfer of Gwen's memorial. This really means a lot to me! I will request a photo of her tombstone so that you will get credit when it is posted. I sincerely appreciate your thoughtfulness.
Best Regards,

RE: Francis John Leonard, USN
Linda, I changed it to unknown. Rather than do a request photo, I have 3 memorials I just created for a son and his parents at Holy Cross (Jerry H. found their obits- he's great!) that I think you would be the right person for. "There is no word for a mother who loses her child". I know you take beautiful photos and this family deserves it. Memorial # 145766659. Let me know if you'd like to do it--I'm in OC and don't know when I'll be down to SD next. All the best, JD.

Great photographs! Thank you. SMSgt Lloyd Golladay was a veteran of 3 wars, World War II, Korea and Vietnam. Very few veterans can lay claim to such an accomplishment. Again, thank you. Walter D. Golladay, Family historian and Marine veteran.
