William Richard McNutt
Hi, Thanks for your help on find-a-grave.com. I am currently working on William Richard McNutt and would ask if you would please remove the photo of the couple on the memorial. I think this was found on my ancestry.com account when I accidently posted that photo on the wrong set of grandparents. The couple is not William and Opal McNutt.

melody ackman
RE: ruth smith ackman
She is beside the road. Her headstone is white with a big angel sitting in the middle of it. I think it is about half way through the cemetary. You cant miss it. Her and her husband Willam Ackman are the only ones with the name Ackman there. I cant remember who is close to her but if you look closest to the road you should find it

Question about photo of Robert D Randall
Hello Melody,

I noticed you posted a photo of Robert D Randall http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=pv&GRid=40736075&PIpi=76072647

Do you have a higher resolution photo of the tiny thumbnail that you posted?

Just thought I would ask!

Thank you!!

Deb

re: Pvt. Joseph Eugene Cummings
Hello, Melody,

I am a friend of 'soilsister', who takes care of the photo requests for the Meuse-Argonne American Cemetery in France. I live in the U.S., and I have access to research sources here that she doesn't in France, so sometimes when she runs up against a problem she asks me to help out.

We're certain Pvt. Cummings in not buried at the Meuse-Argonne Cemetery. From the info that was posted on Pvt. Cummings's page, it appears bio info was taken from the book "Indiana World War Records: Gold Star Honor Roll." The problem is, that book was published in 1921, and in 1921 the American Battle Monuments Commission started a program of offering families a choice as to whether their fallen soldier should remain in France with his comrades or be brought home to be buried with family or in a national cemetery like Arlington. So all of the cemeteries listed in the Indiana Gold Star book are _temporary_ cemeteries, and if you're working on Indiana WWI soldiers you should be aware that _none_ of the burial info published in there is correct.

The permanent American cemeteries in Europe are described on the American Battle Monuments Commission's website (www.abmc.gov). You can search their database for the name of someone who might be buried over there -- and unfortunately Joseph Cummings's name does not show up. Neither does it show up on the Arlington National Cemetery website (http://public.mapper.army.mil/ANC/ANCWeb/PublicWMV/ancWeb.html) or the VA's Nationwide Gravesite Locator (http://gravelocator.cem.va.gov/) for ntional cemeteries other than Arlington.

I have discovered that Pvt. Cummings's father Daniel is buried in Saint Josephs Cemetery, Elwood, Madison Co., Indiana (see http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=55873921); Joseph's brother John is also buried there. It's entirely possible Pvt. Cummings is buried there. The bio on your F.A.G. home page mentions your mother takes photos in Randolph County -- perhaps she would consider a side trip to Elwood to look for him.
