I am fairly new to Find A Grave, but have been researching for over twenty-five years. |
If you find I've contributed an entry on one of your ancestors, chances are I have additional information. Please feel free to email me or request a transfer to your ancestor.
The photos submitted to Find A Grave by me regarding the Collinsville Veterans are posted through the joint efforts of myself and Gene Beals, who passed away in 2013.

|Jan Bos from Nijmegen, Holland||Pvt Charles Anthony Ady|
Pvt Charles Anthony Ady was a paratrooper in B Battery 376th Parachute Field Artillery Battalion 82nd Airborne Division. He was killed on 11 July 1943 (today 69 years ago) during the so-called operation Husky. His body were found in an ochard ENE of Scoglitti in Sicily; his parachute had not opened properly. He was buried in the temporary American Cemetery GELA in Sicily, in the neighborhood where he was killed.
He was buried in plot-grave B-20-233, date of burial was 3 August 1943 in the Gela Cemetery.
I am writing a book about that cemetery where over 1,200 young American men and women were buried, who were killed during the liberation of Sicily.
Can I have your permission to use the picture you took of his grave for my book, of course you will be credited.
If you are related or know the family, or may have documentation and his picture, hope you are willing to share.
Hope to have finished the book next year for the 70th anniversary of operation Husky.

As part of the new management staff at Oak Hill Cemetery, we are very interested in finding out much more information about the military veterans interred here. Records are very spotty through the 1950's, but earliest burials here were in 1840's. If you have any further information on Major Kimball, or any descendents, we would be very appreciative. Always happy to help anyone looking for information on our folks here, too.
