|Bio and Links|
My uncle, Carl Glee Smith Jr is memorialized at Manila American Cemetery and Memorial in the Philippines. His life was lost during Typhoon Cobra, December 18, 1944 when three ships went down, USS Hull, USS Monaghan and his ship the USS Spence. I have attempted to leave notes at each of the memorials for the 793 sailors who lost their lives that day. I also see many other memorials that no one has left flowers or honored them, I am also honoring those as I have time. There are over 44,033 memorials at that cemetery. May God bless the thousands of families who suffered loss during WW II.|
I am attempting to link many of Smith burials in an effort to help those who are just starting their family search venture. Descending from four Smith branches is a challenge. At the present time, I am linking Smiths from several states from Vermont, New York,Ohio to Illinois, Nebraska and Kansas. From Virginia through Kentucky to Arkansas. From Georgia, Arkansas to Texas.
In addition, I am documenting my Jones from New Hampshire, through Ohio, Illinois to Nebraska.
A few of my family lines are Blatherwick, Farrow, Gilbert, Wood, Kelsey, Evans, Blake, Cady, Watkins, Stewart, McCormick, Jones, Stiles, McDermott, Hoffman, Smith, Black, Brazle, Roth, Martin, Cole, Morgan, Oswalt
If you use my personal photos, please give me credit for the photo, this includes family photos posted as well as cemetery photos. Thank you.

Thanks for the info. I made the update to his bio.
|Molly Lindsey||RE: Gerard memorial|
Thank you for making the links.
No I am not family but Dr. Paul Gerard was our family doctor in Elizabethtown, KY and he and my son have stayed very close friends for over 30 years now. We both love the family.
Thanks again, Molly

Hi Vickye~ I made the correction for Pearl's last name. Thank you for your work in the cemetery in Manila - what an amazing story, I had not heard about the sinking of those ships during the war. Thanks again, Pam

|gisele kurtz mitchell||RE: McMaster Memorials|
No, i'm not related, the info i have is from the interment records... The caretaker is really helpful, & is never put out or "annoyed" by my "digging/looking to connect" the dots! Unlike the Catholic section of Fairlawn which is taken care of by the church, & VERY POORLY, I might add!! Why that costs money, to quote their office people!??? Really? & they dont have time to look up stuff...& then there are the cemetaries that charge, or unless you are related, (how do you prove to some office person that this is your "grandma/etc"?? No info available! & I always introduce myself & explain I am VOLUNTEERING to get a photo for a family member! Sorry for the rant... I just want to take every opportunity I get to expose these people/cemeteries !! Aren't you sorry you asked?... Oh yeh, I forgot to mention the family plot is right behind the caretakers building i will get a photo for you next time I am out there!
I have added the information and linked him to his parents and wife.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving.

Dolly was the Mother-in-law of my grandma, Zola.
|Amy Heywood||RE: Memorial Z. Allen|
There is nothing to add for my Grandma, but my Mom says my great Grandma is buried there too. Her name is Dolly Etta Hardage. I don't know how often you visit that cemetery, but I couldn't find her on findagrave. I live in Phoenix, so I don't get to Grants Pass, but once a year or so. You don't need to go search for her, but if you happen to be there and want to look, that would be neat :)
|Amy Heywood||Thank you|
I just found a picture of my Gramma, Zola Allen's, headstone. I wanted to say Thank You so much for adding this!
