“Who Will Remember You”|
May Sarton, the author and poet, wrote a few lines which should haunt all family genealogists if we don't care and don't share our work: "Who will remember you, my darling ones, when I have gone, or who will remember me? It's only in our hearts the dead live on." Genealogy, when it's more than just names and dates, allow the dead to live on and the living to be firmly grounded in the family history they are part of.
I was born and raised in Sewickley, Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, but am now living in California. As far back as I can remember I have had an interest in knowing more about my ancestors, thanks to my maternal grandmother Pearl (Webster) Buchanan who would talk about her Hawk and Webster family connections. She had great heartwarming tales about them all.
My ancestor surnames include the following: Armstrong, Buchanan, Cain, DeLong (DeLange), Doty/Doten, Fish (Fyshe), Hawk (Hawke, Hawks), Jennings, Johnson (Johnston), McCandless, Maitland, Mattox (Mattocks), Moore, Sackett, Sumney, Thompson and Webster. Many of them were born, raised their families and died in the Pennsylvania areas of Butler, Mercer and Venango Counties.
The Armstrong and Fish families originally settled in the New York area after arriving from England. The Delongs/DeLanges, from the Netherlands, also settled in the New York area. The Doty/Doten and Sackett families settled in and around Plymouth and Springfield, Massachusetts and the Webster family (also from England) arrived in Connecticut in the mid 1600s. The Armstrongs, Buchanans, McCandlesses and Moores were from Ireland and the Sumneys from the Alsace area in France/Germany. Any information on any of these families would be greatly appreciated.

Threatening to take it up with Find a Grave? Really? I suggest you read the transfer guidelines before you ask for a transfer of your "cousin" because you didn't get your way (military rank in prefix name field for 72 year old non-career veteran). You'll notice I'm pretty free with the transfers, but not this time - your 50 burial unknowns (see FAQ) don't help your case, nor does your attitude. All the military info you are so bent out of shape over is detailed on his memorial, as has already been explained to you. I spend a lot of time on Civil War veterans in particular, in case you have not noticed.
End of subject.

I denied your request to add a rank to his name because he lived to be 72 years old. He was neither career military nor did he die in the service. The rank doesn't belong in the name field...my grandfathers were in WWII & Korea and lived to be 79 and 82. It would look ridiculous to put their military ranks before their names. That goes for any veteran.
To say his memorial is not kept updated or does not honor his military service is wrong. Have you noted his military service mentioned at the very top? Do you not see his obit, which also mentions his military service? There will be no transfer. Sorry.

I linked his daughter Gertrude Hartman if you were interested.
