Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am Bob, 77 years old, living at the Armed Forces Retirement Home, Gulfport, Mississippi.
I only use my electric bicycle and public transportation. I retired from the United States Navy on Friday May 13, 1977. I have always thought of Friday the 13th as my lucky day, and it still is.
I grant permission to use my photographs in all respectful means.
I add interments when I find them, if they are from your family, I want to transfer them to you because you have more information than I do. If you are maintaining a section of military information elsewhere, I want you to maintain the memorial sites that I posted too. Again you have more info than I do. I will transfer for any or no reason.
I finished photographing the Lord Ridge Cemetery. I was unable to get a complete listing from the City Council. After that, I would have been able to tie in my photographs with the entire "population" of the cemetery. There would have been lots of photos of the headstones that would not be posted because about 90 percent are not available or has been damaged beyond decyphering. I am honored to have been able to post the memorial and headstone photograph of the "Father of his country, Belize" the Right Honorable George Cadle Price.
I am also happy to say that I have photographed every grave site at the US Soldiers' and Airmen's Home National Cemetery (up through October 2010) and the Battleground National Cemetery both in Washington, D.C.I have also Posted every grave site at St. Elizabeth's Hospital (West Campus). I photographed and posted all missing memorials and photos at Bethesda Cemetery, Camden, Arkansas. I did the same for Shiloh Cemetery, Union County, Arkansas. I have also photographed all the headstones at the Kanchanaburi War Memorial Cemetery Thailand (the POW Cemetery from the Thai Burma Railroad, Bridge on the River Kwai fame). I have photographed all of the headstones at Chungkai War Cemetery, another POW cemetery from the Thai Burma Railroad, Bridge on the River Kwai fame.
In December 2012, I photographed Labuan War Cemeteryand Labuan War Memorial, in Malaysia.
I photographed all of the headstones at Clark Cemetery, Philippines and have posted them, through December 2014.
One day I will be honored by my name being included on the Fallen Find-A-Grave Contributors Memorial.
I am also a War Graves contributor.

Although she was a cousin, I never knew her as she lived in Mississippi all her life and I lived in Texas while we were both alive. I appreciate the transfer of her and her husband. I have asked for her children who have passed on to be linked to their parents and the grandchildren who have passed on to be linked to their parents so that the chain is unbroken. Some one some day may look for them and be able to find the complete chain.I hope so.I did know of her parents and grandparents. they all (as well as mine) seemed to originate from Tn,Ky, and Va. Not that there was much difference back in the 1700's.

Many Thanks
Decades from now, or perhaps a century hence, descendants will be grateful for the information provided and they will continue adding to the family tree as more information is made possible and available for research.

As they say *Ancestry research is "never complete"

Greatly Appreciated for all your work on findagrave.
