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 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.

RE: Robert Rex Roe
Thank you so much for pointing this out to me. Robert Rex Roe is my husband's brother and this memorial was transferred to me recently when I sent a request to link him to his spouse, mother and father. It seems his memorial was created in Ft. Logan National Cemetery (Fort abbreviated) while his wife's was in the Fort Logan National Cemetery (no abbreviation.) Thanks to you I have made the correction.

Many thanks for the picture at Arlington of my great grandfather Frederick Stuehmann's tombstone. I was told many years ago he was buried at Arlington but had very little information on him at the time.

Thank you very much for the notification. That was very considerate. He was a distant first cousin of mine and while I have his obituary, I had not thought to post it. Glad you did.

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

RE: Leo & Celestine Cox

Michael the pictures look sharp. Thank-you.
The flag looks glorious in front of the stones.

I just notice that Celestine, was a PFC?

Wow. I was not aware that she was a veteran.
Thanks to you, and your clear photo, I know now.

I am so grateful you are keeping your talents
sharp and fresh.

You have given peace to others through your work.
