I enjoy life, spending time on my boat and flying remote control airplanes. I started working on my genealogy in June 2009. I did this for my granddaughter.
I had a second cousin that was a ball turret gunner on a B-17-G Flying Fortress named "Screw Ball." Sgt Malcolm Leon Kearns was killed on Aug 6, 1944 over Germany. Five members of the crew survived and were taking POW. I have located three that died in Oct 2007, Jan 2008 & Jun 2008. I hope to locate the other two.
Talk with your elders and write it down before they die. It will make your children's job a lot easier when they look into their genealogy.
Whitaker Transfers Thanks for the recent transfers of the WHITAKER names to me. Will be glad to update them and if you have others you want to transfer, I'll accept them, including those listed below since they all go back to my Whitaker ancestral lines:

Laura Wesson You have a picture posted of LAURA WESSON. I think its Oakwood Cemetery. She apparently was instrumental in the war in some compacity. I have a friend that is very interested in the history of the war. He's been looking for her grave site/ memorial.
Any chance that you would know exactly where it is so that I can relay the information to him ??
