Please do not assume, 'of anytown, anystate' means birth city and state.

Full time Student, 4.0 (summers too) so I'm slower with edits than usual. I'm knocking out the oldest edit's/SAC's and transfers a few at a time, while trying to keep the newest ones updated, too. Thank you all for your patience. You guys are the best!

Please be respectful in understanding that not all suggestions are necessary. Chances are that I already know the info, but have chosen not to include it for various reasons.

Military ranks are included in the name title when the full rank is among the choices in the drop down menu. Example: Sgt 1st Class should not be listed as Sgt; 2nd Lt should not be listed as Lt., and so on. If the full rank name cannot be placed in the title (as I wish they could be) then the full rank will always be in bio section.

On the other hand, I will gladly accept any pertinent information you submit. (citing source)

Please use the "Edit" feature to submit corrections. I'm far too busy to look for memorials, so that method helps to expedite your request. Thanks.

Need a memorial transfer? You'll need to use the edit feature on the memorial in question. Please allow 30 days.

Corrections and Transfer request submitted on this page will be ignored.

Cpl Ethan Jacob Martin
I have two pictures of Ethan's marker but there isn't room on the page to add them. Is there someplace I can send them to you so you can work with them?

Thanks,

Jamie King

Dear Elizabeth,
Would you please turn Lily over to me. She and I are cousins. Our Great Grandparents were brother and sister. I am really sad that she is gone. She was such a lovely person.

Cameron J Stambaugh

Here is another obit if you care to add it to your listing of Cameron,



Family grieves Local soldier killed in action Cameron Stambaugh dies in Afghanistan
Mitchell Stambaugh knew the moment he saw the news. Six service members had been killed by a roadside bomb Sunday in eastern Afghanistan. None of the names had been released, but Mitchell knew. One of them was his 20-year-old-boy, Cameron Stambaugh. Since Cameron deployed in February, the Stambaughs' relationship had become a modern, military family one - Facebook, text messages and worry. Mitchell texted Cameron. "Please tell me you're OK." Cameron didn't respond. Sunday came and went. Mitchell Stambaugh worked night shift at P.H. Glatfelter. When he drove home, a silver SUV waited for him in the driveway. The somber faces of the uniformed men inside confirmed it. "I didn't want to believe it," Mitchell said, "but I knew." The soldiers' deaths were the worst one-day loss of life for Fort Bliss, Tex., soldiers since the 507th Maintenance Co. lost nine at the outset of the Iraq war in March 2003. Sunday was a violent day in Afghanistan. Roadside bombs killed seven American soldiers, 19 Afghan civilians and seven Afghan policemen. All six U.S. service members killed by the bomb that took Cameron Stambaugh's life were military police men. The family In Hanover, Pamela Smith, Cameron's mother, said she'd had a premonition. Smith said she saw it in a dream a month ago. In the dream she'd been sitting in a car. Cameron, who'd been in Afghanistan since February, opened the door and got in. He wore his uniform and a white shirt. "Mom, I'm in Salem," he said. She believes it's a biblical reference. "I knew something terrible was going to happen," she said. "I prayed for him." She was at work when a friend called her and gave her the news. "I know he's with God now," she said. Mitchell called Cameron's brother, Jeffrey Stambaugh, on Monday morning to tell him the news. The U.S. Army, in a paperwork snafu, didn't recognize that Jeffrey was Cameron's brother, Mitchell said. So Jeffrey went about business as usual while his family worked to bring home not only Cameron's body, but Jeffrey. Fort Hood public affairs did not respond to a request to contact Jeffrey. "He said he just lost his best friend," Mitchell said. The family will leave this morning to visit Dover Air Force Base in Dover, Del., to pick up Cameron's body. The death has split Mitchell in two. He is proud of his son's service. "He's a true hero," he said, his voice breaking. "He gave his all. He paid his all." But "I regret him being over there," he said. "Absolutely, we should not be there. It's senseless. The people over there just live to kill. They're probably celebrating." The pact Mitchell had been dreading the day for years. As boys, Cameron and Jeffrey made a pact to join the military. The Stambaughs were fighting men, Mitchell explained. Mitchell's father was a World War II veteran. But the gung-ho attitude came from Jeffrey, Cameron's younger brother by 10 months. "Jeffrey called the shots," Mitchell Stambaugh said. "Cameron was always more of a follower." He was quiet, but confident, Mitchell Stambaugh said. Inquisitive. "He could get into your head without saying a word," he said. The family hunted for deer and small game. On a hunting trip in Fairfield when he was 12 years old, Cameron shot his first deer. They fished from the family boat. Then the Army changed him, Mitchell said. He noticed when he saw the boy when he graduated from basic training. Cameron called him sir. But he was as inquisitive as ever. Cameron had been raised a staunch Lutheran, but while stationed at Fort Bliss, Tex., he went to the mosque. "He was studying Muslim," Mitchell said. The last time he saw Cameron alive was the day after New Year's, weeks before he was to ship out for Afghanistan. "I could tell he was scared," Mitchell said, "but he said he was ready to go. He was only a kid." Two weeks into his time in Afghanistan, Mitchell got word that Cameron had been wounded by shrapnel from an improvised explosive device. He feared for his son's life. Some of Cameron's friends died in the war. He told his father over text messages and Facebook. Every shred of bad news, "hit me like a kick in the gut," Mitchell said. Two weeks ago, the two were talking on Facebook. Mitchell asked his son how it was going. Not good. Two of his friends had left the base in Kandahar on an MRAP. You could hear the explosion at the base. The vehicle had been blown into three pieces. Cameron was the first to arrive at the scene. On Saturday, Cameron sent his father a picture on Facebook. In the photo, Cameron the boy had transformed. Muscles rippled across his chest and arms. Mitchell told his boy he was looking good. They said they loved one another. It was their last conversation.

RE: Eternal Rest - Estelle McNeir
The person who notified me was under the impression that they were both cremated and they held the husbands ashes until they could be placed together in their plot in Monticello Memory Garden. Thank you for your help.

Eternal Rest - Estelle McNeir
I received this message when I requested a headstone photo. Since you set up this memorial, I was wondering if you had any thoughts?

I found her husband is buried in Monticello Memorial Park (Memorial# 133258017), the office has a record and pointed me to the plot but there is no marker for him. They also have a record file for her but no burial info, the manager said he assumed that cremains were not buried yet. It appears that they have one plot and that her cremains were to be buried on top of his full burial.

There is no such place as Eternal Rest Memorial Gardens in Charlottesville or Albemarle county that I can find. I assume that the funeral home in NC put the wrong place in the obituary.
