Cold Springs Cemetery Garrison, Texas
As I was scanning the area with Google Maps to figure out where the cemetery was I spotted a Funeral Home in Garrison. I will contact them for information on the cemetery.

S2c Guy G. Jackson
I am no relation to S2c Jackson. My father was one of the Marines serving in the USS Nashville's Marine Detachment who was wounded in the attack, but survived. I have been researching the final resting sites of the soldiers, sailors and Marines killed or who died of their wounds in the attack since 2010. I am sharing the information with Steven Bustin, author of "Humble Heroes: How the USS Nashville CL-43 Fought WW II." Mr. Bustin's father served, as a Gunners Mate, for three years onboard the USS Nashville. He also maintains the websites that relate the ship's history. As a retired US Marine I believe that remembering these men is important.

RE: Memorial Sponsorship
I'd appreciate it. Charles was the only child of my Mother's youngest sister.

Thanks!

S2c Guy G. Jackson
Seaman 2c Guy G. Jackson is buried in the Cold Springs Cemetery in Garrison, Texas. Is there a point of contact to find out where his gravesite is? He was killed in the Kamikaze attack on the USS Nashville CL-43 on December 13, 1944 during the Liberation of the Philippines. I posted this information on your find a grave site.

RE: Joel Busby
Thank you! That would be much appreciated. He is my uncle, that I never had the opportunity to know. I have his medals, etc as my Mother, the last surviving member of this family nucleus, died in 2012, at 94 years.

I'm new to this. I realized, when my Mother and last surviving brother died within 19 days of each other, that I'm the only one left to be sure future generations know the families of which they came from. Overwhelmed isn't strong enough to express how I feel at this time!

I appreciate your volunteerism and willingness to share.

RE: McKnight cemetery marker info
Well, thank you for helping me -- last month or whenever it was!

Looks like all of the "Seven Brothers & Two Sisters" Alexanders are linked up now on FindAGrave. Awesome -- absolutely awesome.
Thank you for not giving up, when I sent you that link information for somebody's parents, and somehow it got scrambled via the EDIT tab method -- and then FindAGrave tried to make somebody his own father (or something like that) on the memorial page. Do you remember that? Wow, was that confusing. Good thing you didn't give up, and that you were able to figure out that the info would update correctly if you typed it in by hand! That was pretty strange -- I know the Alexander family is complicated, but when somebody is his own father -- that is getting to be too much!!! What is that called -- um --parthenogenesis or something like that. LOL! Computers are great when they work -- and when they don't work -- oh, boy
-- they are nothing but entertainment.

If you liked the first booklet --

1) "Early Family Burial Grounds of Mecklenburg Co", DAR, 1900:
https://archive.org/stream/earlyfamilyburia00daug#page/6/mode/2up

then perhaps you would like this second one as well --

2) Historic Rocky River Church (1751-1958)
https://archive.org/details/historicrockyrivblum

I have been using these books to track down a few missing people.

By the way, there is a cemetery (which used to be in Mecklenburg Co but is now in Cabarrus Co) that was moved, back in 1979, called McClure Cemetery. It was thought to only have about 13 graves in it in 1979, but then when an excavation team took a look at things, there were a total of 173 graves. If you are looking for any missing graves in the area -- then this cemetery could be a possible spot to investigate further. More info about the original McClure Cemetery is here on its profile page:

McKnight cemetery marker info
Hi,

I found a booklet with some inscription info about two McKnights in Mecklenburg Co, NC, on page 30. I just thought that you might be interested in the DAR booklet:
