Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching some of the 36,000 + Army Air Forces personnel who died in the line of duty, of non-combat causes during the World War II era in service-related accidents. It is said that more
than 15,500 Army airmen were killed in airplane accidents between 1941 and 1946, within the borders of the U.S. and it's territories. They gave their all and died in the service of their country, but received no purple hearts and virtually no mention in the history books and have largely been forgotten by time.

I have taken photos of probably more than 10,000 names in the Manila American Cemetery in the Philippines, but I do not have time to upload them. Anyone willing to volunteer to upload some of them is appreciated. If you would like to know some statistics about the cemetery, click on my photo I display here.

For corrections, additions, or requests for transfer of memorial, please use the Edit tab, and select Suggest a Correction or Provide Additional Information to make any update requests. It is much easier to handle the issue this way, rather than a personal message.

I am happy to update any memorial, including family links. But I DO NOT like adding census information, copies of death certificates and please do not add long obituaries to the "photo" area. The information can be condensed and pasted into the bio area. If you don't have the time to type out the obituary, just email it to me. I will add it and give you credit for finding it.
I appreciate any information that can "round out" someone's bio.

Robert Hiram Culham
I got a picture for your request for Robert Hiram Culham today. The claim on it was going to expire tonight.
We have been having all time record rainfall here so it is really challenging to get good pictures now. It quit raining just a bit today so I got a picture. I cleaned the stone up. I could get a lot better picture if the sun would come out.
It started raining again about 30 seconds before I got the gravestone cleaned up. I have some area shots too but I have to leave to help with something at church and won't be back until late tonight. I will add a couple more pictures later tonight or tomorrow. If the sun comes out sometime before next summer I will get a better picture of his gravestone.
Are you related to Robert?

Duplicate memorial

I noticed that you created a memorial for Frank Chamberlin, #15414462. There is already a memorial for him which has more details and additional photographs, #32442116. I photographed all of Rose Hill Cemetery in Rifle, Colorado this summer, and I've been working intensively with all of the records, so that's why I noticed the duplicate. I'm too new to Find-a-grave to know how you merge duplicate records, but I thought I'd mention it.

Also, I thought you might like to look at my Civil War set for Rose Hill. It's online at:

RE: Ruth Glanzer
Thank you so much, Tim. The lighting that time of day often doesn't cooperate, but the photos look wonderful. Actually, that time of day is my favorite whether to take pictures or to dream of all things beautiful.

RE: Thank You!
I'm not a descendant of Mortimer Reynolds--my gg-grandfather served with Reynolds in the Civil War--but I can take control of his children's memorial pages if you'd like to pass them on.
Thanks again for all your great work!

We need to add my uncle to your list of air corps accidents. He was LAS on dec 11th 1941 out of Puerto Rico transporting air craft from Florida to PR. How do we get this done?
