I'm sorry I did not get to this, hubby had many other plans. But I see that someone posted photos in June of this year. Hope they help.

Thanks for offering to transfer, but I'm not related. Trinity Valley Community College in Athens has the old Athens newspapers scanned and in volumes. I look for obits and occasionally run across one who has 'fallen through the cracks' and create a memorial for them; probably the grave is un-marked. I enjoy doing this and really appreciate your response!

I have added the bio you sent, and was able to link her to her parents as well. Would you like me to transfer her to you? I'm happy to make transfers out of Find A Grave guidelines as long it is going to someone who will care for it.

I would like to talk to you about Brock. I am with the Barton County Historical Society in Lamar. We have a farm home here in Lamar that was said to have built by him around 1866. Would love to exchange any information about him and his family. Thanks

|The Angel Hunter||RE: USS Enterprise virtual|
I added him to my virtual cemetery. Thank you.
My grandfather was QM1 in the Navy and served on the Enterprise throughout most of the war. As quartermaster one of his duties was to go into Admiral Halsey's cabin each day and wind the clocks. One day an armed Marine (possibly your relative?? smiles) wouldn't let my grandfather in the cabin. So, he went about his other duties only to be called to the cabin later by a half-dressed Admiral asking how he was supposed to run a war if he didn't know what time it was. After grandpa explained he didn't have any further difficulties be allowed into the cabin. Hehe.
These kinds of stories are nice to hear as it shows a lighter side of what was a horrible war for these men.
Fortunate for the Enterprise, it was not in Harbor that day. They were in fact heading in and were radioed to turn around and return to sea. Grandpa told about having to change course, as steering the ship was his main responsibility. He often told about the kamikazes which would aim for the control tower (his station) as that was the best way to sink or disable a ship. He had to stand his post. He stuttered as he told these stories. He is my hero.
