photo of my birth father's headstone
Hello rommy

My name is Sadaqah. I just want to show my appreciation
For you taking a photo of my late father's headstone.
Pvt Gregory Cornell Allen is my birth father. He passed away when I was a year and nine months old. That was October 26,1977. I'm turned 38 years old last month on the 15th. What made you decide to upload the photo? Did you know him personally? Did someone request the photo? If so who? Did that person know him personally? I'm searching for his surviving relatives. Get back to me as soon as you get this message. Thanks again.

Thank you so much for posting all the Oxtoby graves. I knew they were buried in McHenry County, but I didn't know which cemetery. It's always great to be able to add one more piece of information onto our family pages! Thanks again.

Ralph Ausin Bard
I have just submitted an entry for Ralph Ausin Bard (#123045163), interred in the Lake Forest Cemetery, Lake Forest, IL, as a "famous bio." (He was an official of the U.S. Navy Department in World Ward II.) I would like to invite you to add your photos of Bard's grave to that entry. If I hadn't stumbled upon your entry for Bard, I wouldn't have known for sure where he was buried. I obtained the plot information from the Lake Forest Cemetery.

Cordially,

Michael Walter

RE: Wallace C Winter in Lake Forest, IL
bit of confusion concerning birth location and paternal grandfather's between Yale Universities Obituary and in case of grandfather U S Census 1850, And Wikipedia's story on the Yale football star Wallace Winter whose 1st son was a WW I hero.

This was passed to me by Dennis Find A Grave #46782277 along with corrections for Wallace's father Edwin Wheeler. The middle name is apparently Charles, I would guess that Marinette, Wisconson is the birth location instead of Hudson where he lived four years later.

The grandfather may have two given names Johnathon & Charles

~ ~ ~

His [Edwin's] son Wallace's obituary in the Yale Obituary Record shows that Edwin's parents were Charles & Almira Winter:

Also, Wikipedia on Google has a bit about Wallace Charles being a football hero at Yale, and mention's his 1st son an aviator in WW I. You have listed his other two sons.

When a bio is added I normally remove the note in flower.
