Sally Ann O'Cain Satchwell
My mother-in-law, Nancy Biggs Kieckhefer is related to a Sally Ann O'Cain. Sally was married three times; first married to William O'Cain. Second and third marriages I am not sure of. Is it possible that your Sallie Find A Grave # 63563397 b 1813 d 1886 is the daughter of William O'Cain b 1790 d 1850, Find A Grave # 73870143? I believe my ex-wife is related to her. I am the contributor for the recent post to her memorial including inscription on the reverse of the photo.

Thank you Ray Gurganus, for the perfect photo of my 3rd great grandfather & grandmother's headstone you took for me. It provided very important information regarding my ancestry and I appreciate it so much. You're wonderful!!

Casper Bagrowski
Thank you so much for adding the two pictures to Casper Bagrowski's Memorial site. He is my 1st cousin 1X removed. I never knew him but did grow up with his two boys. I do have one question about his death date. Find a Grave - 4/17/1946. On Ancestery the information has his missing in action as 2/16/1945 and his release date as 2/17/1946. I'm afraid I do not know how one determines an official death date or the death date to use for Find a Grave and for our Family Tree. Would you know how this is determined? If it is 2/17/1946 could you correct this? According to family information his birth date is May 27, 1916. Would you be able to add that to his site?
My uncle is also at the cemetery in Section J, Lt.Paul A Zink. From the pictures of the cemetery it looks beautiful. Nice to have pictures for the family.
Thank you so much for your help.

Thank you so much, Ray, for photographing the Garfield monument. I hope it wasn't too difficult to find!

John S. Paine
Per your edit on memorial #92102445.
The edit states that John S. Paine
should read son of Stephen Paine and
Hannah Samson.
I did find in the vital records a marriage
of Stephen Paine to Hannah Samson in 1787.
The death register of John S. Paine says
the names of his parents are Stephen Paine
and Hannah Sherman.
This memorial was transferred to me, and will
require that I do further research. I have
checked 3 "Paine" genealogy books, but they
did not have the information that I need.
