Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired Lutheran minister living in metro Chattanooga, TN (Hixson). The Chattanooga National Cemetery is my favorite place to go for Find A Grave and I feel honored to be a data manager for it. Where you see "(jsims)" it is data that I have entered on a given memorial that I do not manage. In addition to having two family members at Chattanooga National, I simply consider it sacred ground and am pleased to help in honoring the memory of all the veterans there. I will gladly consider the transfer of "ownership" for any memorial made by the request of a family member.

Some of my friends have asked me why I research and memorialize "Yankees" and especially USCT. I have also been asked why should I or anyone memorialize the German POWs in Chattanooga Natl. To all who wonder, I direct you to the hymn, "In Christ There Is No East or West."

I give general permission for the use of any photographs that I have taken in non-profit heritage projects or family trees. It would be "nice" to hear where this happens and to be given credit.

RE: John Huard
Hi John

The mistake was mine. I misread the field. I have updated his birthplace to Minneapolis and added his death info. Thanks for adding to his page

Thank you very much for your response & transfer. I appreciate all the hard work you've done; the information has enabled me (and I'm sure others) in filling in gaps in our family trees.
