|Bio and Links|
I am Bob, 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 am 74 years old. 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.|
I grant permission to use my photographs in all respectful means.
My next project is to photograph in Malaysia and maybe in Manila, Philippines and maybe the Thai Burma Railroad POW cemeteries in Burma/Myanmar.
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 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 have also photographed the headstones at the Kanchanaburi War Memorial Cemetery Thailand (the POW Cemetery from the Thai Burma Railroad, Bridge on the River Kwai fame). http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=cr&CRid=2140732
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, also. http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=cr&GSln=a&GScid=2210970&GRid=18896966&CRid=2210970&
In December 2012, I just completed photographing all of the headstones at Labuan War Cemetery, Malaysia.
In January 2013, I just completed photographing all of the headstones at Clark Cemetery, Philippines and have posted them.
One day I will be honored by my name being included on the Fallen Find-A-Grave Contributiors Memorial:
I am also a War Graves contributor:

Thank you for all of your hard work and all the photos that you took there. I did Danville National in Virginia and it was only a little over 2000 graves so I appreciate your contributions here very much.

Ok, I found her son, too, and have asked for a link. Cannot find death or divorce of first husband. However, did find both of her marriages. Will extract some additional facts from her obit and post those in the bio section.
Do you want her back? Or should I wait to see if a relative claims her since I added the additional information?

I have found her maiden name and place of birth from her obituary. I have been unable to locate an obituary for her son.
Her first marriage was to Leonard Nash in 1910 per the Washington State Archives.

I cannot thank you enough for uploading my great uncles grave. I have now been able to show my grandpa his uncles grave.
I hope to visit it myself one day.
