|Bio and Links|
My uncle, Carl Glee Smith Jr is memorialized at Manila American Cemetery and Memorial in the Philippines. His life was lost during Typhoon Cobra, December 18, 1944 when three ships went down, USS Hull, USS Monaghan and his ship the USS Spence. I have attempted to leave notes at each of the memorials for the 793 sailors who lost their lives that day. I also see many other memorials that no one has left flowers or honored them, I am also honoring those as I have time. There are over 44,033 memorials at that cemetery. May God bless the thousands of families who suffered loss during WW II.|
I am attempting to link many of Smith burials in an effort to help those who are just starting their family search venture. Descending from four Smith branches is a challenge. At the present time, I am linking Smiths from several states from Vermont, New York,Ohio to Illinois, Nebraska and Kansas. From Virginia through Kentucky to Arkansas. From Georgia, Arkansas to Texas.
In addition, I am documenting my Jones from New Hampshire, through Ohio, Illinois to Nebraska.
A few of my family lines are Blatherwick, Farrow, Gilbert, Wood, Kelsey, Evans, Blake, Cady, Watkins, Stewart, McCormick, Jones, Stiles, McDermott, Hoffman, Smith, Black, Brazle, Roth, Martin, Cole, Morgan, Oswalt
If you use my personal photos, please give me credit for the photo, this includes family photos posted as well as cemetery photos. Thank you.

|Northern Neighbors||Meant to thank you|
for honoring those World War II veterans listed at Manilla American Cemetery and Memorial. Please visit Modesto Neto if you get a moment. He was my cousin's husband.
For daughter Esther - the gravestone has Sept 20, not Sept 10, but I added in the bio area with a notation of the date on the stone.
|Melvin L. Halterman||MEMORIAL TRANSFER|
Thanx very much for the recent transfer of the Elroy Howard See memorial.
|Wayne Love||RE: Peninger|
Elizabeth's last name was also Peninger. Elizabeth and James were 1st cousins. Elizabeth's father, Peter, and James' father, Henry, were brothers.
Check and see if I got it correct. Thanks

Yes somewhat....I am descended from Caleb and Sally Thomas Stevens. His son caleb married Hulda Norton
|I Do Genealogy||Henry Coffman (Witt Cemetery,KY)|
Henry's full name was John Henry Coffman. Like his brother Harmon (Richard Harmon Coffman), he went by his middle name. He definitely was born in Virginia but there is no proof that I have found that it was in Shenandoah County. The year of birth is probably correct although it could by 1793.
He is my second great-grand-uncle, the brother of my great-great-grandfather. Mine went to north Missouri about 1862-63 but his brother Henry stayed in KY.
BTW -- Harmon, like his brother, never ever used his first name. I only know it because his father, Abraham Coffman (d. 1849 in Elizabethtown, Hardin County, KY) provided full names in the will.

Thank you for your tireless efforts for Find A Grave! I believe that the above Memorial for Edgar L. Grace who died in the Philippines in 1942 is my daughter's Great Uncle on her Dad's side. If so, he was born in 1920, and still has two living siblings. He served his country like at least two of his brothers did (I am still investigating this), and like numerous ancestors. Two of Edgar's siblings earned Purple Hearts. Thanks again for your work!
