Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a 69 yo Viet Nam era Veteran of the US Navy who retired in 2008 after 30 years of federal service working for the Departments of Navy and Defense. Started working my family genealogy 4 years ago and has a lot of catching up to do. I have found treasure troves of information from very friendly people and very distant relatives. I also have found out how fun history can be as I have found in my family tree, a possible Signer of the Mayflower Pact, several patriots who fought in the Revolution and several who fought in the Civil War on both sides of the conflict, possible very distant relations to the Spanish Throne, a "lady" to an early English king, amoungst the riff and the raff. I'm finding that it is easier to find and sort information on those who are long dead than those that have died in the 20th and 21st centuries. I lost my mother in 2004 and she is buried with my father at the Fort Bayard National Cemetery, New Mexico, as is her next younger brother and his spouse. I had not been back to the cemetery to check the headstone since the internment and needed a way to see them ... is perfect. And no, I am not related to pretty much everyone who's headstone photo I have taken, at least that I know of. I am also doing indexing for the LDS Family Search program with over 65000 lines indexed since I started in October 2010. Now that will sometimes blank your eyes and cross your mind. :^)

Thank you for the information about Kenneth Litts not being on the Vets Cemetery Listing. Kenny was cremated and is supposed to be interred there and his wife, Ruby just passed on May 5th and after her cremation they were to put her ashes there too. Thank you for your help.

re: Turman memorial
Jerry - Thanks for your quick response. Although I must continue to search for her second husband, your efforts have helped immensely.

re: Jewel Thomas Clark Turman
Thank you for filling my photography request. This lady was Step-mother to James A. Turman (# 37622331) and second wife of Talmadge DeWitt Turman (1895-1984) who died in Escambia County too. Although her memorial reflects the name of her previous husband, might you have seen a Turman plaque as well? Regardless, thanks again for your photo support.

RE: Llewellyn (Lew) Charbonneau
Yes I agree with you. Lew is my brother in law so I know the spelling is correct. His wife had him cremated but said that there was a burial place in there, She told me that she was going to take his ashes and put them there and that there was a plaque on the front of it. His obit is in Lew Charbonneau. His memorial service was at Lewis Funeral Home on November 14 2015. Thank you for all your help.
