Richard L. King
I noticed that you are maintaining the listing for Richard Lee King.
Is he a relative? If so, I would enjoy corresponding with you as I am researching this same King line.

Hans August Anderson
Hi, I saw thephoto of the grave for Hans. Thank you. He was my grand fathers grand father. My grand father was George August Anderson and his father was August Anderson. August was born in Sweden, apparently Hans was married before he left Sweden, or August was born out of wedlock. Hans and August both lived in Brooklyn with their families. My mother remembered her father telling her that Hans August described the battle on the Monitor as blood and guts everywhere.
I am curious as to where you got the photo of Hans. I saw it on line as being sold in an auction. I have copies of all of his paperwork.
I have also located a few personal articles about him.

Rudman, Gregory Z.
Don't know if you noticed the number of Rudmans buried in Braddock Catholic Cemetery but there quite a few; several are part of my family tree. Gregory's parents are buried there and I maintain their site here on - Joseph Louis Rudman is her father (Memorial #51546422) and his mother is Josepha Louise Webster (Memorial #51546650). I'd like to link Gregory with his parents if we can.

Capt. John E. Rockwell
Thank you sooo much for adding lots of great information to & maintaining Capt. John E. Rockwell's grave. He is my 3rd great grandfather, and was quite the sea captain in his day. (Mighty handsome, too!). I put in a request yesterday for a photograph of his grave, and Dayle Dooley fulfilled it today! We are truly blessed to have such an incredible Find-a-Grave memorial. Many thanks. I've put in some edits to add links to his wives & daughters. I'd be happy to manage his page, but will certainly understand if you prefer to keep it after all the work you've put into researching his life & career.

Possible advice on a couple vets in my family?
Good afternoon.

Thank you for your work on find a grave on veterans! This is so cool.

I came across your profile for Knut Knutson Jr. in Drammen Cemetery, (Eau Claire, WI) who is a distant relation of mine. I am hoping to link him up with his father, I can send you an edit thru that record, but I was so impressed with your page, I wanted to ask you some questions. if that is ok.

I just recently became interested in the Civil War as I came across several GAR Veterans in Hamlin Cemetery near Strum, WI. My great great grandfather is buried there, his name was St. Clair Jones (1836) was a civil war veteran, as were all three of his brothers civil war veterans. One of them did not come home, William J. (1834) There are 11 other civil war veterans buried in this tiny cemetery in rural, Wisconsin. I am hoping to find out much more about those 12 men to update Find A Grave.

Also, my grandfather Stanley K. Hanson who died in 1997 was a WWII Navy Veteran and I am curious to find out more about his service if I can.

I was wondering if you would be able to give me some advice for good places to start my search on finding more about their service?

I have checked out some civil war veteran sites, but because of sheer number of men with the same exact or similar name, and not knowing their regiments and company, it has been difficult so far. I do know some regiment info for a few of them (the 4 in my family) but not the others. I want to find them too if I can. Any advice would be appreciated. Sincerely, Cyndi
