Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am retired from the Navy, and have retired IN 2001 after 35 years in Law Enforcement. A couple of my hobbies are the documentation and photographing of the tombstones of the Woodmen of the World and the associated fraternal associations, and the photography and documentation of the Civil War veterans headstones where ever I come across them. I had ancestors who fought on both sides of the Civil War. My great Grandfather (Fathers side) fought Confederate (Texas Cav) and his twin brother fought Union side (Colorado Cavalry). My great Great grandfather (Mothers side) fought For the Union from Ohio. I actually actively search for both of the above mentioned types of tombstones in cemeteries where ever I happen to be. My wife usually accompanies me and assists me greatly in these hobbies.

If you have a better quality photo then the one I have posted I will not be offended if you post it.

I'll be more then glad to transfer any memorials, except for my family, to anyone who wishes them, just write and ask.

Jim, thank you so much for honoring our people who struggled in this great conflict. This is my Great Grandfather and I would like to write a bio for him. Could you please transfer the responsibility to me?

RE: #65266503 Antonio M. Vigil
Thanks, Jim. We have decided to get in the car and drive out there (from NV) the end of this week. We have so many questions and sometimes it is easier and faster to simply visit -- especially since we also need to go to Wagon Mound and Clayton, NM. Thanks again for doing these memorials! CindyLee

Hello, I found this memorial in Antonito Cemetery (and a duplicate #75165507 in Conejos Cemetery)and wonder if you can tell me how to get dates? I believe this is my husband's grandfather Antonio Montes Vigil. CindyLee

John Ogden, d. Nov 30, 1908; Buried: Greenmount Cem., Durango, La Plata Co., Colo.
Hello -

Thank you for establishing the Find A Grave Memorial (#7496873) for John Ogden, a veteran of the 3rd Wisconsin Infantry, Company K.

I am a direct descendant of one of his brothers, Caleb Smith Ogden (Find A Grave Memorial #54942126.)

I have posted some Edit information for John Ogden - the Find A Grave Memorial numbers for his parents, Abraham "Abram" Ogden and Mary "Polly" Smith Ogden, both interred at Forest Hill Cemetery, Madison, Dane Co., Wisconsin. Also, I have posted the birth date and location for John Ogden, as an Edit.

I also linked the Find A Grave Memorial for one of his daughters, Estella "Stella" Ogden Gonzales (Find A Grave Memorial #121026331) interred at Forest Home Cemetery, Milwaukee, Milwaukee Co., Wisconsin.

You can email me directly,, if you wish.

Jean E. DeLauche

I have additional biographical information on John Ogden, if you wish me to supply it, so you may add it to his Find A Grave Memorial.
