Bio and Links
Bio Photo Due to spam issues, removed e-mail from being visible. If you need to contact me and don't have my e-mail, please post on my wall.Most memorials I add have been verified by viewing the grave, seeing a photo of the headstone (with GPS if GPS was attached to the photo) or by verifying with several independent sources to document cemetery location. Clarification. The below was added after numerous comments in various groups by people who don't understand U.S. copyright law. I am not a copyright attorney, but have consulted with copyright legal experts and the U.S. Copyright Office on copyright law on copyright issues for other purposes. The new agreement with Ancestry does not allow people to post photos from this website to Ancestry without first getting permission. Both sites make it very clear the copyright holder retains copyright and you need his/her permission to use any photo. Under U.S. copyright law, photos taken after 1977 are covered by copyright without the need to register it, use the (c), circled c, copyright, or any other notice. Using someone else's photo with citation is not a substitution for needing permission. I personally photographed over 95% of the photos I have uploaded, and have permission from the copyright holders for the remaining ones. Some of them have asked me to not to list their names after they were hassled by some people because they would not allow the photos to be used on other sites, especially paid sites like If you wish to use any of the photos on other websites (including Family Search, and any of its affiliates, etc.), contact me and I will let you know if the photo can be used. If a photo request asked for permission to be used elsewhere and I filled it, the original requester or his/her heirs has permission to use the photo(s) in line with what was listed in their photo request. I will consider OOG (out of guideline) transfers on an individual basis as long as the memorial isn't for a person related to me, but please state the nature of the relationship (family, close friend, etc.). I don't do bulk transfers. I reserve the right to not transfer OOG in certain situations. I always do a detailed multi-stage search before, and immediately after, adding a new Memorial to avoid creating a duplicate Memorial. However, on rare occasions, an existing name doesn't show up in a search. If that happens, please let me know and I will remove the duplicate Memorial I added. However, if I added the Memorial first, mine is not the duplicate. Part of this approach includes making sure they are added to the correct cemetery. This includes comparing cemetery records when available to other records, checking obits and death certificates, looking at photos that were taken with GPS-enabled devices, etc. Again, sometimes the research doesn't indicate when a person has been moved from Cemetery A to Cemetery B, or that Cemetery A was later acquired by Cemetery B. I won't add someone based solely on obit or death certificate information as the information may be incorrect. Update 2: With the new SAC/Edit system, we won't be seeing as many e-mails, but I do check e-mail because some will still come through e-mail and I check the Edits tab on a regular basis.I try to get to SAC/Edit requests as soon as I see them. If I haven't gotten to your request within a week, please feel free to post a message on my wall with the ID of the Memorial. I check my Spam folder on a regular basis, but I get enough e-mail that a request can occasionally fall through the cracks. The nature of the Edit/SAC will determine how I handle it. Looking for a variety of names spread mostly across the eastern half of the U.S.Honoring the memory of my Dad who was in the Air Force, my brother who served in the Marines and Army, and for the many relatives who have served in the military over the years.Updated 03 December 2015, still alive and kicking.

Memorial #120741594
Dorothy Smith and Harvey J Smith just might be:
Dorothy Marie Hall Smith and Harvey John Smith.
They were married March 10, 1945 in Arlington, Virginia.
If the same, Dorothy's parents, Walter Lee Hall and Emma Johnson Gray Hall are also buried in Mount Comfort Cemetery.
Also, if the same, Dorothy's sister is also: Blanche June Hall Weaver and her husband Ward John Weaver. Blanche June Hall Weaver was my aunt.
Walter and Emma Hall's children:
Dorothy Marie Hall, Margaret Lee Hall, Laura Elnora Hall, Blanche June Hall, Bertha Mae Hall, Martha Rose Hall, Nancy Jeanne Hall, Walter Hall, Wallace Hall, and Eleanor Hall.
I just happen to be catching up on the research of this part of the family when I found this memorial. Hope this helps in your research, and thanks for putting up the memorial.

Eleanor M. Chavez
The office at the Resurrection Cemetery did show me where she is buried there. I added a photo to her memorial and wrote that she does not have a headstone. The office is aware of the headstone in Calvary Cemetery and can't move it without the okay from family. The son... Gary has been hard to find. I've worked with Mike Maxton, who has her memorial at Calvary and he has the same idea. He has done a good job adding information about this situation. I'll stop by the office one day this week and see if they've made contact with the son or other family member.

I was wrong about the headstone for Eleanor. That is hers, but she is buried in another cemetery without a headstone. Thanks goodness for helpful cemetery workers who help solve these kind of challenges. :)

I've added a photo Eleanor's memorial page. The photo is not of her headstone, as she does not have one. The notes with the photo explain. If you have any questions, let me know.

Kring #143365424
Hello, I was researching another Kring and came across your listing and as I'm new to Find A Grave (and still getting the hang of it) how did you obtain the GPS coordinates for the gravesite for your memorial above?? Did you physically stand at the grave and get coordinates from your cell phone or other device? I was really surprised to see a memorial with coordinates (is this common?) and sure enough, it worked when I clicked on the link. Thanks for the info. Diana

Col Edwin Dennis Patterson, Sr
On 26 Oct 2015, I submitted the 5 Aug 1998 Washington Post obit for Col Edwin Dennis Patterson, Sr. (11 Jan 1926 - 4 Aug 1998) respectfully requesting that it be added at his memorial #119926601. Would it be possible to get the obit posted to Col Patterson's memorial?
