Bio Photo NOTE: if anybody wishes for a memorial to be removed,and you are a FAMILY MEMBER please contact me and it will be deleted, no need to explain. I will NOT contact you.

Born in Manhattan NY, grew up in Brooklyn Heights NY. I served in the US Army 1969-1984, starting out in the Women's Army Corps 1969-1979, the WAC deactivated and merged into the regular army. I was a Combat medic for 14 1/2 years, served two years as a Drill Sgt Ft McClellan Al, ret SFC.

My family was from PA and NY. Grandparents immigrating from Russia/Poland/Germany. My father's rellies settled in Luzerne County PA. My mother's family was from upstate NY, Olean/Portville.

I started my family search in 1995 and because of my Luzerne connections group's help, I found I had more family than just a grandfather. Leads led to others and lots of friends made along the way.

I don't do memorials as a HOBBY I volunteer to take photo's of headstones, because it helps others research their families. Preserves the headstone before it is completely gone from age-honor our Veterans.

I will make corrections, add additional info & family links,transfers when asked. Use the Edit tab, then the Suggest A Correction option & this way I will get the direct link info. I add obits if there is one available or will add any info given to me

PLEASE DONT STEAL MY PHOTOS OR REWRITE A TRANSFER AS YOUR OWN WORK, OR PUT ON OTHER WEB SITES. I will ask Find a grave to remove it. If you want to use a photo, just ask. If I gave you permission to use a photo, please make a note as to PHOTO USED WITH PERMISSION, I have been finding a lot that I don't remember giving permission to use. Photo's used on this site are copyrighted.

I am in Carmel by Brewster. How do you keoland to get an obit pic? I just use what pics the funeral home posts if any. Lots of work to go and add the plots, must have gotten you through the winter. I did that with St. Aloysius as the manager gave me the registry, but Bear Butte both in Sturgis SD is online I haven't had time to get into yet. Hope all is well with you and stay warm

Dear SFC Karban:

I want to thank you for your tireless work as a Findagrave volunteer. What the person who reported you to Findagrave for adding flags to the countless Veterans' memorials you have created must not understand is the years of service your gave of yourself to our country. The years of taking orders, and of following orders. So now, you devote yourself, as always, to helping others. And the respect, and esteem you tried to show Veterans by adding the American Flag to their memorials, is something only you and others who have served can truly understand. So the person..the rule keeper.. tattled..and Findagrave duly removed your flags because they weren't in the spot we are asked to put them. The tiny flags can now be found in the 'flower & msg' area. But know they aren't as meaningful as when you placed them on each memorial. If it had been a family member, making a request to remove one flag, you would have done it in a heartbeat. Thank you for caring Sgt Karban. And thank you for continuing to care by trying to show honor to so many forgotten veterans...the honor we should all have thought to give them. I hope the tattler is proud. But we are all proud of you and what you have done and continue to do for this nation. Fargo

Sgt Rosemary Monroe
Thanks for the pictures you contributed to Sgt Rosemary Monroe's memorial. I came across her memorial while filling in my family tree using find-a-grave. Although adopted, she was in my family and is my 4th cousin (I'm related to her ADOPTIVE family). Also, as a proud mom of a US Marine (my daughter), I am moved when I see other females in the military. Thanks again for your contribution both to Find-a-grave, but more importantly, to the service of this great country of ours!
