|Bio and Links|
With much of my immediate family growing in and around the Washington D.C area for generations, I was never overly curious about family history. After a friend who was more interested than I found photos of relatives gravesites in other states who were born during the time of Andrew Jackson I was amazed. Even a marker for my grandmother's unnamed infant son which I had seen in home movies had been photographed by someone.|
I am most familiar with DC area's, Holy Rood, Arlington Cemetery, Oak Hill and Cedar Hill Cemetery on Pennsylvania Avenue. I have taken many photos for my own enjoyment and for friends over the years, but realize others are often not so near.

GenealogyBank.com has a brief obit for William H.C. Becraft, Baltimore Sun, May 29, 1841, Obituary: "DIED. At Georgetown, on Friday, the 20th inst., at the residence of his father, after an illness of about six weeks which he bore with christian fortitude, William H. C. Becraft, in the 25th year of his age."
|Jan Bos from Nijmegen, Holland||1Lt Lewis H. Braden|
1Lt Lewis H. Braden was on board of a bomber from the 441st Bomb Squadron, 320th Bomb Group. His plane participated in a bombing raid over Sicily on 17 July 1943. The plane never returned to her base. No remains were ever found. Sergeant Hauber Jr is listed on the Walls of Missing of the Sicily Rome Cemetery in Nettuno, Italy.
You took a picture of his cenotaph. I would like to ask your permission to use that picture for my project about the temporary American GELA Cemetery in Sicily, where over 1,200 men and women were buried between July 1943 and April 1947. If his remains would have been found, he would have been buried at Gela.
I have my project available on a DVD, titled "They stayed behind".
Of course you will be credited
