I'LL Volunteer to get the photo.
Hello All,
WEE talked me into this...and I've been having a great time taking headstone photos from France, Japan, Hong Kong, Australia, Easter Island, Saigon, Africa, Iceland, Greenland, and all over New England. Rather nice hobby, now that I am retired.

Suggestions are appreciated.

Re- Sergeant ( Obs. ) William W Johnstone
Grateful thanks Bob for taking the photo of William's grave- he was my late father-in-law's brother. The family have never managed to get out to Germany to see his grave, so this is a great comfort for them.
Many thanks again,
Carol Johnstone.

RE: (#47118595) Margaret
The Margaret # is a member's number not a memorial. Her actual memorial is # 100664412.

Bob, the 2 memorials in question are # 81939658 at Pines Cemetery & # 127556546 at Fairmount Memorial Park. (I submitted my edits to the Fairmount memorial because Edgar's wife is buried at Fairmount)

The memorial # 81939658 is "managed" by Margaret member (#47118595) but sadly Margaret has passed away. My dilemma ~ is somebody else managing those memorials? i am not sure who I should pose my questions to. I think Edgar WAS interned at the Pines Cemetery originally & may have been moved to the Fairmount Memorial Park but how do I find out?

On a side note as I see you enjoy taking pics of headstones in unusual far off places.......I have one for you. Its Edgar's brother~Rev. Howard Bigelow. Howard's memorial is # 162771716.

Howard was killed by an elephant in the Congo 1951. I posted excerpts from old newspapers to his memorial. The original news articles are a lot longer & do give a lot more in-depth info. The location of the cemetery used to be in a place called Costenmanville (pre independence from Belgium) now its called Bukavu, Sud-Kivu, Congo, Democratic Republic of (DRC) =)

(#47118595) Margaret
Hey BobBoston I have a question for you. For some reason you are my go to person for answers.

I have found a memorial I believe is a relative that I want to make edits to AND there appears to be two memorials for said relative. When I go to public message the two members one of the individual's #47118595 profile says she has passed away. How would I find out if anyone is managing her memorials?

ps. The 2 different memorials are in 2 different cemeteries but in the same town~Spokane.

I would like to thank you so much for the photo of the gravesite of my uncle who I never met. His brother my Dad was only in my life for two years as he passed away when I was two. We have been doing what we can to do the family tree thing. Of course it would be great if I could get over there myself but that is not working out at this time.

Thanks again from me and my family.


P.S. We are volunteers for find a grave where we are in Canada.

Aberdeen Proving Ground Cemetery
Hi - Just saw the photo you posted of the cemetery Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland. Do you know any history behind this cemetery? I find it interesting that most of the graves are of infants & children who lived short lives. Was this a special burial place for children of men/women in the armed forces? Thank you. Gwen <><
