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.

Thanks again for the info. I deleted the duplicate and updated the other memorial for her.
|Stacia Padgett||Dollie Goodman Nugent|
I just posted a picture of the monument of Alonzo & Dollie Goodman Nugent. The birthdate of Dollie is different than you had posted. Not sure which is right. It is in the Stephensburg Cemetery.
|Hume Family by MSB||Donald McConahay|
Updated the dates. Thanks for the info.
Thanks for the info. I made the updates and links.
I could not find the duplicate for Florene.
Is the Emma Sefton Johnson (1859-1937) #51165623 buried at South Park the same Emma B Nation that married Oliver? I photographed them both on that visit to South Park and if they are the same, then I have put Sefton as her maiden name and I need to correct that.

Thank you for making the links.
No I am not family but Dr. Paul Gerard was our family doctor in Elizabethtown, KY and he and my son have stayed very close friends for over 30 years now. We both love the family.
Thanks again, Molly

Hi Vickye~ I made the correction for Pearl's last name. Thank you for your work in the cemetery in Manila - what an amazing story, I had not heard about the sinking of those ships during the war. Thanks again, Pam
