|Bio and Links|
I was born and raised in Western New York State. Our family has now lived in North Carolina for the past 20 years. I have been doing genealogy since 1957 when it started as a school project. I was excited to find that my ancestors, Francis Cooke and his son John came to America on the Mayflower,and that I had several ancestors fight in the American Revolution. Not only do I enjoy collecting names and dates, but I like to collect the stories to make the people come alive.|
I also enjoy helping others in their genealogical research. That is why I volunteered to photograph the gravesites in my area.

|Jan Bos from Nijmegen, Holland||S/Sgt Lawrence E. Rider|
S/Sgt Lawrence E. Rider was a crewmember on board of a B-25 Mitchel bomber. On 5 July 1943 the bomber took part in a bomb mission to Gerbini airfield in eastern Sicily.
The plane received a direct hit by German FLAK and crashed against the slope of a moutain, killing all on board. One of the crewmembers was Sergeant Rider, your uncle.
he was buried in grave I-101-1204 in the temporary American GELA Cemetery in Sicily as a group burial. After the war the crew's remais were repartiated and buried in grave E-246 in the Zachary Taylor National Cemetery, KY.
I am writing a book about the temporary GELA Cemetery and hope to finish it this year.
You posted a picture of your uncle on the site findagrave.com
Can I have your permission to use the picture for my project, of course you will be credited and notified when the book is finished.
Doy you perhaps have a group picture of his crew or of the airplane ?

Thank you so much for your time and the photos you posted. I really appreciate it.
|Heather Hawkins Rehn||Rena Adams Goode Hughes|
Thanks for taking and posting the photo of her gravestone. I had seen two different birth years for her, so I wanted to see what was on her stone to know which was correct. I really do appreciate it!
|Lanie||High Shoal Cemetery|
Thank you for adding the Givens family grave photos from High Shoal Cemetery. I really appreciate your doing so! I can now identify her mother from the grave info.

All done. I filled in the stats & made some further connections. I'm not only a member of this church, which the cemetery belongs to, but I am related to the lions share of those buried in the older sections of the cemetery via. direct and collateral lineages. Hope your trip up north yielded some Great Genealogical Gleanings.
The Best to You and Yours, Butterfly~Kisses
