Private Eldort A. Brauer
Private Eldort A. Brauer was a Ranger with Company E of the 1st Ranger Battalion. He drowned during the amphibious landings at Gela (Sicily) on 10 July 1943. His body washed ashore. He was first buried in a fieldgrave behind the invasion beach and reburied in the temporary American GELA Cemetery in plot-grave A-11-131, date of burial was 27 July 1943. After the war his remains were repatriated and buried in the Rosehill Cemetery in Rocky Hill, Connecticut.

I am writing a book about the temporary American GELA Cemetery and hope to finish it this year (2014). Over 1,200 men and women were buried in this cemetery between July 1943 and April 1947

You took a picture of his grave. I would like your permission to use the picture for my book, of course you will be credited and notified when the book will be finished

thank you

Requests for your photo
Thanks again for the photo you added for Rachel Starr Denison Avery. I noticed that the stone mentions several other people, and I hope you can add the same photo to them as well:


I really appreciate it.

RE: Re: Jeff Jensen
That's sad about the records. Did you find the memorial (way in a back corner of the older section) for the actress with the verse, "She walks in beauty like the night..."? I used to live off Library Lane, on Elm Street, and, at the end of Elm, there was a path through the woods that came out near there. We spent a lot of time, as teenagers, taking photos there. Little did I know that that foretold this obsession! LOL

Jeff did, indeed, leave us MUCH too soon. And, worse yet, he committed suicide. It was a terrible time in our lives. So your kindness meant a lot to me. I hope you're able to do all you want there. Too many of these older cemeteries fall into obscurity.

Oh, there was another favorite spot for us - a plot (I wish I could remember the family name) that was surrounded by shrubbery, so that it was like a secret garden. And, buried by his master, as "Beloved Welsh Corgi..."

Have fun! :-)

Re: Jeff Jensen
Laura - I can't thank you enough for taking these photos! Jeff was a dear friend who died much too young.

When I still lived in the area, we spent many hours visiting this lovely cemetery, but it has been a LONG time since I was there. I hope you enjoyed visiting it. The older section has many interesting memorials, including, as I recall, one for a "beloved Welsh Corgi"! :-)

Thanks again,
