RE: Noah William Drake
Thanks so much for the reply that helps a lot to understand the relationships. I recently found a lovely picture of Frederick and his lovely wife Mary Ellen tending to their chickens, I have posted it on Ancestry. Thanks to your pictures of her I was able to identify the photograph. If you would like a copy, please let me know.

I will look for the ship that they came over on, it shouldn't be too hard to figure out.

I did know of Mrs. Connoly passing, I am in touch with her son Carl. I am very sad to hear the news of Agnes Marie passing though.

My love and best wishes for a very happy new year.

Noah William Drake
I wonder how Noah came to be thought of as Irish? The Drake line is German as we well know and if his father removed the kids to raise them then I wonder if the Iraih streak was a nod to his Mother?

I would love to hear your thoughts on this.

Hi, I just wanted to let you know that your Mother has 2 headstone photos your father did too but I deleted my photo. I didn't realize there was one before I uploaded mine. Take care!

Helen Fairchild
Since you sponsored the page for Helen Fairchild at the Somme American Cemetery in France, I thought you would be interested to know that I just discovered she also has a marker in the Watsontown, Pennsylvania, Cemetery. (See Find A Grave #125985607). I am working on trying to find out where her parents are buried so we can link them.

just a hello
I came upon your site while looking for your memorial for Maj Annie Fox. I enjoyed looking at your site and would like to invite you to mine. Specifically the 1-8 Jumping Mustangs. I have created a virtual memorial for as many of the KIA of that unit who died in Vietnam Nam during 1965-1971.

Happy Holidays

RE: Comrades
Hi Grace,
Thank you for your service as well. The least we as veterans can do is to remember and honor those who have already left this world - and are hopefully saving us a seat in the next one.
All The Very Best,
Jami (Sgt G)
