|Bio and Links|
I found this site while working on my family tree centered around Gene Autry, OK. I was so thrilled to have found pictures of my little sisters graves so far away. When I started my husband's tree, based in Stark, NH, since some of the cemeteries weren't listed, I decided to work on documenting all the graves that I could. I try to gather as much information on each as I can, in case it can help someone locating their relatives. It has become a very interesting hobby.|
I love photographing these old cemeteries and finding long lost relatives for people. After all... isn't that what FAG is supposed to be about?? You are welcome to use my pics in your family trees. After all... the pics were taken for all of you.
The cemeteries in Stark, NH that I have completed are: Percy, Blake, and Stark Village Cemeteries. I still have to complete the Emerson Cemetery in Stark. I have completed Number 10 cemetery in Lancaster. The Colby-Collins cemetery in Warner is also complete.
I will gladly transfer memorials that are not related to us. I will gladly search for your relatives in my area. I will edit my memorials if the suggestions do not contradict the documentation I have on each one. I work hard on researching each grave because I don't believe blank memorials help anyone.
Don't order me to delete memorials because yours was there first, especially if mine is full of information and yours is blank and/or not even associated with a cemetery. Those help no one. No one cares who was first...so get over yourself. Actually don't "order" me to do anything. I'm old and can get cantankerous ... so ask nicely. If you repeatedly ignore requests or suggestions from me think twice before asking me to do things for you. We're all supposed to be working together to make the best listing of memorials possible.
I don't care about how many memorials I put up but I do care deeply about memorials having the most accurate info possible. Otherwise... what is the point??

I linked Abigail Whipple Huntoon to her mother. Thank you for finding her headstone with date of death. I had hit a brickwall on that information. Your generousity has helped me tremendously in my genealogy search of the Huntoon lineage of my family history. I can finally put to rest Besty Gales Whipple's finally resting place.

I was almost sure you had to be related, with that level of commitment. I know from experience it takes more than a couple of minutes to figure some of these things out.. Relatives of the folks in those cemeteries are lucky to have you.

Shirley, I reached the same conclusions, with a difference - I think the two Octavias in 1900 Coos County are the same person, just enumerated in two different spots. I've seen this happen before. It seems like you might be related to these folks - if I have a page or pages you would care to manage, tell me and I can transfer them, or you can make a new one if you like, it doesn't matter much to me. I searched high and low for husband William (6th cousin), and never found a trace after 1870. Same with William's father, Edmund, who apparently married 3? times; nothing after 1880 when he was in Pittsburg. I haven't even managed to convince a couple of relatives that Edmund has anything to do with it at all, since they've never heard of him. Let's say they were not receptive to the concept. Oh well :)

|HollyNH||RE: Bishop & Hooker|
I know of this family! Cora was my Great Grandmother's niece. Her sister's (Bertha's)daughter. I have pictures of Cora when she was little. I have pictures of Bertha Bishop Hooker. Cora's sister had MS early in life and died from it in 1959. The Hooker's also had a son who was the first born, but died by the time he was 2 or 3. I also found out that Bertha had a son, (illegitimate)before she married James Hooker. His name was Rexford Thorncliff Bishop and I can follow him into Vermont and then the trail dies.
I am also a professional Genealogist and know the ins and outs of finding adoption records, etc. Check out www.allaboutyougenealogy.com. I can help you! I would be happy to give you the pictures and what I have on that family.
If you are interested in learning more please don't hesitate to e-mail me at email@example.com. I'd love to hear from you!

|HollyNH||RE: Bishop & Hooker|
Your very welcome. After reading your bio, I love that you have helped so many people. So thank you! Not sure if you are related to the Hookers or the Bishops (or the Gilberts or Browns for that matter) but if you are, we are related! I took these about two years ago when I went to Bishopton (Dudswell) but never got a chance to put them on until now. I have hundreds (well, maybe a hundred) more and hope that I can add to them a few a day or so. If you need any other information, please let me know. I don't live near there, I live in NH, but took the trip for Genealogical purposes. Glad I could help!
All the best,

More than likely his father, like other parents, was upset that they didn't return his remains until after the war .... instead of immediately.
By the time the families were notified about the deaths the soldiers were already interred somewhere. And at that point they weren't sending "any soldiers" back since the war was still raging across all fronts. That is, ALL soldier that died overseas during WW II "were not sent back" to the US until after the war!
In other words, any, and all soldiers, interred in the US who died overseas during the war were not sent home until over a year after the war was over (it started in 1946).
Hope this helps.

When someone "dies of wounds" as Clyde did, it is very hard to say exactly where and when they actually received the wound in battle and how severe that wound would have been. Most of the soldiers (about 90%) that were wounded died within 48 hours of their wound.
I'm not sure where you got the info that he died in Normandy? .... but I don't think that is where he actually died, its possibly, but not likely ....
I can tell you that he was actually wounded sometime after August 15, 1944 which is when the 179th Infantry landed in southern France at St-Tropez as part of what was known as Operation Dragoon during World War II.
Best "guess" (and it is only a guess) at this point is that he was wounded and died taking the town of Meximieux, France which occurred in late August and early September, 1944.
However, if he did die of his wounds at Meximieux, France his remains would have been sent to Normandy for interment there since a cemetery had already been established there for our soldiers.
He could have died at the evacuation hospital set up at Normandy after being wounded in southern France but without knowing his actually date of receiving the wound .... nothing is sure.
I would have to go with my best guess, noted above, in this case and say that he died of wounds received in action at Meximieux, in southern France.
This probably doesn't help alot ... :-)
Guess it helps if I include the link, huh?
Don't know if my email reached you or not. This website calculates the birthdate using the date of death and age, something often seen on old headstones instead of birth and death dates.
Thanks for the information on Edith Noyes Walling. Her memorial has been updated.
