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.

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.

Willaim O. Barnard in Monticello, Iowa
Thank you so so much. Having these pictures is very important to me and my family. William O.Barnard was our missing link between Rochester, NY and Kansas. We could not find who moved and when. This is our proof that one generation made it to Iowa, while the next moved to Kansas. Your efforts are greatly appreciated. Your pictures are perfect and so clear. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Janeva Bledsoe, my mother was the Barnard and the great granddaughter of William O. Barnard.

Thank you!

Thanks for picture of Joshua. I have created a memorial for his wife. Could you add the stone "Mother" to her memorial, Find A Grave Memorial# 169052268? It is alleged she died Died 2 Nov 1892.
It would be nice to be able to read her stone. Does the cemetery have a policy for cleaning the stones?

I have updated his Memorial. I found their date
of Death as 20 August 1942, (from 2 newspaper accounts) as wells as from 2Lt. Boguard's Headstone Application. They were with the 483rd School Squadron. I added the headstone app photo to Lt. Boguard's Memorial, & a snippet from the Univ. of Mich. I added the text of the Newspaper Articles to Lt Sonnenberg's memorial. Thanks for all you do at Find A Grave. God Bless. Patti

I am a Vt Civil War buff, and am presently working on a project to identify the last resting places of many of our "old soldiers" that had ties to Vt. J.P. Eddy is one such patriot. May I use the photo that you contributed to his Find A Grave Memorial page, to post on the Vt. (

You would receive credit for this.
