Bio Photo Please check out my WWII virtual cemeteries!

If you have any photo requests available, please make a few, as at the 20 per week rate, it will take me 10 years to get my 60,000 WWII KIA entries completed.

If you see incorrect entries or duplicates (dups usually from the Findgrave crashmaster)...let me know asap!!! If you would like me to transfer a memorial, I will transfer them.

Dear ShaneO,

I'm looking for the gravestones of acquaintances of my grandfather, Gunder Anderson. Both served in WWI and both had roots in Selbu, Norway.

You have posted information for Martin Parelius Borseth, but the post for him does not include a cemetery. Based on the date he was killed, July 19, 1918, he was likely killed in the Second Battle of the Marne (Aisne-Marne Offensive). The nearest American cemetery to this battle is the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery, near Belleau, France.

Would it be possible to temporarily assign his grave to this cemetery? I would then like to request someone search this cemetery to see if his grave exists. If they find it, I can only assume they would post the picture for it. If they can't find it, I would contact you and you could change it back to unknown.

Let me know whether this is acceptable to you.

I appreciate your help!

Bryan Anderson

The Belgium memorial is a Cenotaph Memorial and all the information had been posted in that memorial to shows he is now buried in Denton, MD. I bolded the information so others would not miss it. I also bolded information in his Denton memorial as well. So he does have 2 memorials - a real one and a Cenotaph.

RE: Clayton Lee Adams
If the memorials are merged, who will managed the single memorial? The contributor who created the original doesn't respond when I have asked info to be added to his memorials. The contributor who created the "duplicate" not only recorded the historical info provided by a soldier who saw Clayton's temporary grave soon after his death, but he also added the information about my father. Even though I am a relative, I am not within the Find A Grave guidelines, so it wouldn't be transferred to me. So, for these reasons, I'd rather have the duplicates.

Please copy the obit info to his original memorial -- I had found the obit to add and the memorial that it is attached to was transferred to me (assumed it was the original memorial)

Hi Shane:

I've just put together virtual cemeteries for all the major conflicts on my profile page, so feel free to take a look. I don't have them separated by served or KIA--there's far too many for me to do them that way, and I just don't have the time. I'm adding to them as I go along, so feel free to check back.

Happy Holidays,

Shane I have one I could use some help on. Leander M. Young died in World war II he was from Grand island Nebraska and I found him buried in South Dakota Find A Grave #106389154. I am trying to prove his father Find A Grave #50510757 same name was killed in World War I in 1918 in France. Not used to working on World War I heroes do you have any leads. Thanks . If my hunch is right the son was born the same year his Father was killed. Thanks for any help you can give me. Loren

Find A Grave Memorial# 37233186

A poster (with some very poor pictures) of Mr Rydeen's canteen during WWII is at my local VA Hospital. I also found an article about Mr Rydeen on line (

Was going to post both, but album size is maxed out with the 5 photos that are on his memorial.

Please let me know if you'd like these items for addition to his memorial.

Shane, Shaw appears as part of this crew and is mentioned in several forums as being KIA with this crew on this date. On the USAAF web site state is listed as unknown. That usually means that something may be wrong with the record keeping.
but i feel that this is the same guy.
