Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Ruth (Wilson) Lowell. I was born in Inkerman,(now Baker) WV. My parents were the late Howard and Daisye (Combs) Wilson.

I have been interested in Genealogy since May of 1980. I became very interested when a man knocked on my door one day and asked if he could go over and talk to my dad. That they had told him up at Smith's store that if anyone knew anything about the older people around here my dad would.

The man had a large blue book with Book Of Remembrance written on it. I asked him where he got it and he gave the information so I could order one. It had pages just perfect for recording your family genealogy.

I knew when my mother and dad was gone I would need it. My main list of surnames are Wilson, Coby, Combs, Baker, Hines, Saville, Wilkins, Lowell, Toler, Litton, Parker, Shanholtzer, Teets, Hunter, See and Miller.

Added August 21, 2016. Please do not add death certificates in the photos section as they are generally easy to find, take up limited photo space and may disclose more information than family members are comfortable releasing with the general public.

I do not intentionally duplicate any ones entry, so if that does happen, please let me know and I will delete it, only if theirs has a lower memorial # than mine and the date added is before mine.

S/Sgt Richard TOLER
Hello Ruth,
do you have received my message (29 sept) ?
here a copy, have a nice day :
i'm a french aeronautic searcher (born in 1963)

on sept 3rd, 1944, a B-17 made a crash landing in my village (DAMEREY, in Burgundy), the nine men were captured by Germans, they belonged to 381st Bomb Group 534th Bomb Squadron, one was made prisonner and others can escape;

in 1998 1999 i started my research and in 2000 i found 5 men still alive in the States (it was before internet... with only my phone);
they were reunited again in 2004;
in 2013 and 2014 i had the honor to welcome two families ... a lot of emotions;
the name of the plane was "Sweet Patootie";
i know that Richard Toler had flown aboard this same aircraft (this was on 22 feb 1944 with Lt Henry's crew);
i would be very interested if you have some informations (docs, pics..) about him;
i've found your pics on findagrave;
in 2001 i've made a display about this story;
on nov 5th, 2016 i will make a conference in the village (Sweet Patootie's story);
i'm actually trying to collect a maximum of informations and items to share with people and some witness of this period
i joign the pic taken in 2004 with the 5 vets and article from local newspaper in 2013;

hope to read you
have a nice day,
with my great respect to your uncle who gave his life to freedom

Transfer of Goldie&Ralph Elosser
Hi Ruth, first I want to thank you for creating and maintaining my parents on find a grave. I wanted to ask if you would transfer them to me for maintenance. I have been working on my Elosser side to update as many records as I can. In some cases I have requested to maintain them too. My number is 47752996. Thanks for your consideration.

It is accurate. It is precise. And, unlike some contributors, you have actually been on site. I'm actually to the point that I get excited when I see your name as a contributor.

RE: Wilkins
Thank you. There was a request for a picture of William's headstone, so I have added that to his memorial.

RE: Saville
Hi Ruth,
Sorry for the lateness in my my reply. In my 1st email to you I had typed the wrong find a grave #, but the last name was correct. So I back over my notes I needed to go. Well, I believe you and I may be related thru the Saville family. Abraham Saville #127147590. I need to go back over my notes again & get back to you later today. I had my notes and I understood them last night, today is another thing???
Thank you, Jennifer

Harley Lowell's wife, Anna
Ruth, my grandmother is a cousin of Harley Lowell on his mother (the Rogers) side. I am wondering if you have any idea if Harley's wife, Anna, remarried, or where she is buried. I would like to link the two on Find-A-Grave. Thanks, Judy
