Hello,

I believe your soldier is buried in a grave in the Memphis National Cemetery under an unknown soldier marker. I have a photo of an "Unknown U. S. Soldier" headstone I took at the Memphis National Cemetery that I would be glad to add to his memorial. Please let me know if you would like me to do so.

Semper Fi,
Bruce Linz

Hi! In regards to your photo request, can you please call the cemetery and obtain the grave location (Section & Lot numbers) and ask them whether or not there is a grave marker? Please post this information to the memorial or send it to me.

Forest Home Cemetery: 708-366-1900 or 773-287-0772

Forest Home is a huge cemetery with well over 70,000 burials, and the information is needed in order to find someone there and take a photo of a grave. I go here regularly, and since August I have found over 200 graves at Forest Home that had the location information provided. Thank you! Ace

RE: Heinrich Bremer photo request??
Just wanted to let you know that Heinrich's resting in respectable comfort....still. You might remember your photo request led me to his grave that was in a forgotten cemetery that, by chance, had me make mention of it to an older gentleman in the area a few weeks later on another photo request. A few weeks after that, I got a phone call that the cemetery had been mowed and I could clean up the headstones. Well, a year later, the cemetery is still well maintained and even the tips of the wrought iron fence has been freshly painted. Thanks for sending out that photo request - you've restored the respect that all veterans deserve for all eternity!

The Ohio Veterans Home Cemetery is torn up while a major headstone project is being conducted. All the headstones are being lifted, straightened, those that are broken are being replaced and the rows are being made uniform. All the grass was killed off in the spring and new sod is being placed. The project is about 1/2 to 2/3's done at this point. The pictures should be much better next year after all the piles of dirt and stone have been removed and all the sod has had a chance to be replaced. You may want to hold off on your photo request until after this project is complete.

You have him listed in your 27th Iowa Virtual Cemetery, but I couldn't find him in military records. Did he go by a different first name. There are other Connors in 27th.
