I live in the Martinsville/Henry County Area of VA.|
I will only transfer memorials if you state your relationship with the person and are within the guidelines for transfer.
I will also transfer any WWII Veteran to any researcher that needs them.
Any photo that I have taken, of a tombstone or marker may be copied without my permission. I took them but the families of these people have every right to use them.
Obituaries will only be added if you send me the source of the article. Otherwise it violates copyright laws and I will not add them.
Use the EDIT tab to send corrections or suggestions. If you e-mail me direct your message will probably go to my Junk Mail and I won't see it.
Since we are all adults on this site...personal attacks are unwelcome and uncalled for and will be reported to the administration.

|Janis Noonan||RE: Sgt Fred Barto|
His veteran's burial card says Horn's Russian Cemetery. It is separate consecrated ground surrounded by a chain link fence on both sides of the road as the numbers of burials increased. St. Nicholas was one of 4 Russian Orthodox Old Believers churches in the USA. http://old.post-gazette.com/neigh_washington/20000625waold4.asp I am not sure when that property became St. Nicholas Cemetery and separate from Horn's as there are Russian orthodox burials in the regular cemetery but they were earlier. The church that supports this cemetery was not built until 1910 or so. I might have a window of about 15 minutes to go the that graveyard tomorrow. I only just started photographing this cemetery. I have a person that will translate the Russian for me. I did take a picture and put it on Find-a-Grave for the father Paul. Janis
Arthur Abraham is buried with his Father, Sargis M. (1896-1986), Mother Olga S. (1906-1984) and Joan Werker (1928-2000). If you add memorials, I will add pictures.

|JP Rayder||RE: Cannone|
In the corner on the bottom right had the marking 1-4 –A-25 St Joseph,that I take it as St Joseph,Row-25, Plot-A-Lot-1 thru-4,this appears to be a religious Memorial and if PFC Stephen Cannone is interned in this Memorial only the Cemetery would know. If I come across his plot I will let you know…JP
|Linda Lee D Roberts||RE: Warren Anderson|
Thanks so much for your email and thank YOU for entering names of my Anderson family members to the listings for Stockbridge Cemetery in Find A Grave.
Stan & Vera Anderson were my maternal grandparents and very important in my life as I grew up in Stockbridge. I never knew my Uncle Warren, because he died in WWII before I was born, but he was my mother Loraine's much-loved big brother.
I have much more info and many photos to post for family/ancestors I have researched over the years, but ran into temporary cable modem problems for my home internet connection last week...

|Angel of Flowers||RE: Gladys Swan|
I want to give you a great big 'hug' for finding Gladys. I found her SSDI file and will enclose it. SSDI has so many errors because I know for a fact her middle name started with a 'M'. It's in the few records I have of my dad's. No wonder I was having problems looking for her. All of the siblings were born in Fairfax Virginia. Somehow Gladys was born in South Carolina. It does have her b/d as July 31st. I know with Albert, her older brother, they have two dates for his b/d. One is Jan 4th & Jan 14th.
My own son who died in March but SSDI has him born in June. I cannot get them to fix it. I heard from their supervisor if the error on any record not corrected within 6 months after the death, the computer cannot change the error.
Again thank you from the bottom of my heart for finding her. I will give you credit for the info. I'm looking to see if someone made her a memorial but so far, I don;t see one. They have her name down as Babb, Swann, & Swan. Maybe Gladys was married twice. I know none of the siblings were ever adopted. It was during the great depression and families were not wanting to add more mouths to feed.

|Chris West||RE: Rodrigo|
I found the memorial by looking at a bookmark I keep that points me to all the memorials in the last 24 hours with a blank surname. The link itself is long (see below), essentially, though, I get there by asking for an uncommon surname with "partial" checked, then filter by last 24 hours, then remove the surname and replace it with two numbers. Using two numbers lets you sneak around the two character restriction on surname searches; I use it often to find double-quote characters where they should not be.
Here's the link I have bookmarked. You can highlight the whole thing and paste it in the address bar in your browser to see what you get (a few dozen memorials). There are other contributors that also look at that page to try to nip blank surname memorials in the bud.
|Blue Ridge||Pvt. Ibanez Santos Jr WW2|
My name is Simon. I am 22. I live in France in Lorraine. I am contacting you about Pvt. Ibanez Santos Jr.
I am currently doing research on the liberation of my region by the 80th Infantry Division of the US Army during the month of November 1944.
This research is performed as part of an academic work (master thesis - second year).
Watching the After Action Reports in the archives of the division in order to establish the number of losses suffered by the division between 18 and 28, november 1944, I came across the name of Ibanez Santos Jr.
He belonged to B Company, 1st Battalion, 317th Infantry Regiment, 80th Infantry Division of US Army.
On november 26, 1944, his battalion attacked at 08:00, in the direction of the small village of Altviller (near the town of Saint-Avold and the place where I live). Light resistance was encoutered.
That's why, I ask you if you have any information about Pvt. Ibanez Santos Jr I can use for writing my thesis and make his Story known. I am grateful for his sacrifice.
Please contact me : firstname.lastname@example.org

Hi Jan, Those last three are all filled. It feels like the end of an era. It has been a pleasure to do whatever I could.
