Charles Triche 1793-1886 Thanks for the link to the article ! I wish it had more specific details about him, but it was touching to read, nevertheless ! (He was my great-great-great grandfather.) Very best regards, Brett / Heinz57
Daniel Montz' grave We are going searching in Metairie next week and I'm getting my list together. I noticed you listed the plot as Lake Lawn Mausoleum, this is a separate burial location next door to Metairie Cemetery (they are both huge!) If he is in the Mausoleum, his location should be changed so we are sure to look for him when we go to Lake Lawn on another day.

Lewis T Drane Thank you so much for the additional information for Mr. Drane's memorial. The family will appreciate it, and I have cited your source and my appreciation for your contribution. Thanks again.
Robert Gordon Smith Jr Thanks for the info. Have edited his data and added a card for his Panama Canal service - he was a radio operator on another ship, but was dismissed for absence w/o permission. The possibility exists he may have died at sea and his body was shipped back to Mobile from the first port (N.O.) that it docked at, but can't find anything in the record to support that assumption.
