Bio Photo Please note, I am no longer able to keep up with updating these memorials. I am not related to most of the people I have listed so if you are a relative or can do a better job updating a listing, please let me know and I will transfer the listing to you

In the past I have visited many cemeteries, and... if I had my camera along, I usually snapped a photo or two. It is possible that you may find someone you know among my listings... an ancestor, an old friend, a character from your favorite book.

RE: Saint Joseph Cemetery
Thank You so Much. I had seen that cemetery on google maps but was under the impression the whole thing was "Ravine Cemetery"

Saint Joseph Cemetery
I don't know if I'm ignorant or just having a bad day, But I am trying to locate Saint Joseph Cemetery. I was hoping you might be able to help me with the location of the Saint Joseph Cemetery Picture that you have for Lucas Co. Ohio.

I live in florida and am traveling through the area in a couple of weeks and would love to stop in there and take some pictures. I have some ancestors buried there.

Thanks for any help.

Soldier's Memorial
Hi! The photo you took of the Soldiers' Memorial in the Spring Valley Cemetery in MN is very poignant. May I use it on memorials of my Civil War ancestors who are buried in that cemetery?

Orin Dority
Dear HistoryMom, You posted a picture of Orin Dority's gravestone. He served in my great great grandfather's Civil War battery. Kathleen Jones of the Toledo Civil War Round Table took biographical data that I had collected on each soldier and added gravestone pictures to the text. She self-published that as a book. We are now making additions/corrections to that and would like to include your photo of Orin's grave. We would like permission to do that, but also was wondering if you had a higher resolution picture (dots per inch)as the one posted may be too low to use. Thanks, Ted

Woodson Perry Brown
Wow, I never expected this. My aunt died in the 90s and she always talked about how she had never seen her first husband's grave. Since she remarried before his remains were sent home, Woodson's father made a decision to bury him there. This created some friction I think. Though, I was not born nor did I ever hear much about this. In 1930, here in Muhlenberg county, KY, this is the family:

William L Brown 37 father
Lelah Brown 36 mother
Robbell Brown 11 sister
Willinell Brown 11 sister
Woodson Brown 9 born 13 February 1921
George F Brown 1 10/12 brother went by Frank?

Frank Brown wrote my aunt (her name was Marie) on 2/25/1949. He told her that the remains of his brother would arrive the following day, 2/26/1949. The burial would be in Toledo Memorial Cem with military honors. He said, "it is a beautiful cemetery close to Syvina, 8 miles from Toledo." He said the cost of the funeral and marker should run about $300.

Woodson had been buried in a Military Cemetery in Saipan, in the Philippine Islands since he was killed in 1943 or 1944. He was a Marine, 4th Marine Division, 23rd Marines, Company A, 1st Battalion. His part in the beech assault was his first I believe and he was killed before he hit land.

Well, this is all the information I have on Woodson. Oh, his friends called him "Pete". I am not sure but possibly he was buried and Frank never applied for a marker. I will contact the VA and see if they have a record regarding is final resting place. My father can sign for the records I believe. It just saddens me to think that a loving husband, brother, and son, who gave his life fighting a war on the other side of the world my be lost to us. I will also try to contact somebody at the military cemetery in Saipan to see if it is possible he may still be buried there. Any ideas you may have are so much appreciated. Thank you so much for the work you have done on this.

Thanks again,
