Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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 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.

RE: Leo & Celestine


Dear Mr. Walsh,

The photographs are glorious, Thank-you.

Thank-you for showing the picture of the truck
that brought the wreaths. You capture the whole
picture and illustrate the story with your camera.

All parents should dress the kids up with gloves
and a coat and bring them to a cemetery to open
the little minds, to the service men and women, who sacrificed their minds, bodies and hearts for their Country.

I need to remember to salute when I visit
a Veterans grave site, you know, I never even
thought of that and I should know better.

Thank-you for the delightful update.

RE: Leo & Brother
Thank-you.

I did see on the news how wreaths are being picked up in different States for the 100 anniversary of
Arlington Cemetery.


It is wonderful how you contribute your time,
energy, and talents.

RE: Leo & Brother
Wow, this is wonderful news, Michael, all the
markers will receive a Christmas wreath. God
bless all who contributed funds for the wreaths.

The photo's have been saved twice to make sure
I have them. The photos looks so elegant, every
one of them. You are an artist with your camera.
Thank-you!

I will check back time to time as you suggested.

Soon I will mail the photos you took and send them to Leo's, daughter. Just need to find out
how to print the photos, on smaller paper, need
to experiment.

The more I learn from the history channel on TV
the more I appreciate the sacrifices of the veterans.

Tomorrow I will say a prayer at Mass, for your Grandfather, and the Cox brothers.

I have letters written from Walter to Leo, when
Leo, was at the VA hospital. It is a neat gift to have the photos.

Memorial Day: Why No Arlington for Dogs?
May 27, 2011

*****************************************

Michael,

This answered my question.

I can't imagine how hard it is to be in battle
and lose friends and also a dog. A Dog may have
been the thing that pulled a soldier through the war.

There should be a grave spot for Military dogs
(not at Arlington) but at another location.

If you wish to post Leo and his brother's, photo, later, I think it would tie nicely with your crisp clear photo's.

Your photo's tell a story.
Thank-you,

G.C.

RE: Wive's at Arlington

Thank-you for opening my mind.

I need to make plans in the middle of April
to visit. I imagine that is when the Cherry Blossoms bloom.

Ate there any military dogs at the cemetery?

I imagine since the military dogs played a
role in helping the troops, the dogs would
also be considered veterans, in way.

I enjoyed you walking me through about the markers
how when the sun shines when the names are visible. I will remember that when I visit.

Thank-you,

G.C.

RE: Celestine Cox
Celestine's memorial looks elegant.
I like it just the way it is,


Leo's, photo's, are beautiful, the arrangement
says everything, I want everything, exactly as it is.

I am trying to figure why Celestine is at
Arlington. It does not sit right with me,
when soldiers who served should be there.

I am thinking she made his life peaceful, and
I will accept that as why she is there.

Thank-you, Mr. Walsh, there is a sense of peace.

RE: Celestine Cox
Yes, Thank-you, Mr. Walsh, the management
sounds good.

How exactly does that work, please?

Celestine cox, is Mr. Cox's, second wife, and what a fitting tribute to have the couple together on findagrave.

His first wife,Peggy, was born in England, he married, when he was in the service. I believe Peggy (her name) returned to England and died in her homeland.

This is Celestine (Mrs) and Mr. Leo Cox

Thank-you for all you do for the Veterans,
you give joy through your mesmerizing work.

G.C.

RE: Leo Cox


Thank-you, Mr. Walsh, for giving me permission
to copy your work.

I find your photographs soothing. Mr. Leo Cox,
has found peace, people who care and appreciate
his service.

I am going to look up his daughter and find
a way to mail your photographs of her father,
to her.

If you would like to put Mr. Leo Cox's, photo,
with your photography collection, I think he would like that.

The only thing he would like better is probably a beer. :)

You have found a great calling with taking your photographs of veterans and veteran events. I loved the perspective in photo.

Thank-you,
G.C.

RE: Leo Cox
Thank-you, Mr. Walsh.

Your photo is beautiful, as it is with the deep
blue sky as a backdrop. You clearly show everything engraved in the stone. I don't how you could top
the top, it crisp, clear, and so respectful.

I will look again at the photo to see main, T.Y.

Leo J. Cox, enlisted in the army.

I am trying to figure out what his Company's mission, was in the war. Google books (google on-line) has a few mentions in books on his
Unit. I will keep researching on what exactly
they did, bridges? I have been watching the military channel and the war was so nail biting.
