Thank you for your time and effort!
|sandlotball||Cypress Hills National Cemetery|
The photographs you're taking at Cypress Hills National are the finest I've ever seen of these soldiers tombstones and the surrounding area in which they are located.
Your time and your talent is greatly appreciated and is a wonderful honor to our veterans.

Thank you so much for taking the time to go to the Cemetery and take the photo. I really appreciate it.

That's terrific Patrick. Thanks.
It's remarkable the extent to which some of these stones have deteriorated in less than a hundred years.

Patrick - I've been looking over the photographs you uploaded today of 7 soldier's tombstones. Thank you for taking such clear, sharp pictures. It's gives an opportunity to decipher the inscriptions.
Your photos - and their high quality - are tremendously important as virtually every single request of mine at CHN involves clarifying or verifying names, proper spellings & correct locations of the soldiers buried there.
The VA records for the cemetery are poor & incomplete due to it's age - and the findagrave database is a disaster. A name by name clean-up is ongoing and every photo you post is solving a record problem.
The William Downs tombstone is bad: lines 4&5 (after New York & before his death date) are indecipherable. Any ideas ?
John McCabe's tombstone is even worse. The 3rd line appears to say New York & the last his death date, but lines 4&5 look to have completely melted away. Were you able to make out anything ?
Thank you for taking these photos Patrick, and thank you also for taking such well framed & sharp ones also.

Thank you so much Patrick for the photo. However I can't tell you how disappointed I am that there are no names or dates on the gravestone.
I've reached an impasse in researching my grandfather's sister's family and I was hoping the photo would yield some clues to follow-up on.
I do greatly appreciate your efforts though.

Hi Pat - Nope! I have never seen Margaret there. I have walked the cemetery a few times. I never get there when the superintendent is there, so I have not asked if he has a written record.

Patrick - Thank You so much for the photographs of William McConnell & Thomas McLaughlin's tombstone. Thanks not just for going and taking them, but for taking the time to take an excellent image of each grave, framed in it's surroundings. You even took along the flag. Nice touch.
It's great to see how you've honored these soldiers memories.
