Bio Photo I enter records here on Find A Grave for two reasons: First is to help others find the graves of lost family members and second is to remember our War Hero's who have given their all for our country and our freedom. I do this in hope that their sacrifice and their story will not be forgotten.

Carl Basenberg
Hi Dave,

Thank you for the picture that shows the words
written above the names of the memorial! It's
nice to be able to see it. I also appreciate the
explanation of the cross and flower.

I am sorry I have not responded earlier, but my
mom who is 88, fell and broke her left femur bone
in 2 different directions, so my time and care has
gone to her. Today is the first time I have gotten
on the computer to read my emails.

I have reached my brick wall with my 3rd great
grandfather on my Adams branch of the family-which
is on my mom's side. Hope you have gotten further
back in time than I. Carl Basenberg is my dad's
first cousin on his mom's side of the family.

Thank you for being a part Find A Grave, it's a great web

RE: Carl Basenberg
Hi Dave,

Oh thank you! You have answered questions and
explained exactly what I needed to know. Carl
drowned in the Rhine River and his body was never
recovered. I did not know that even if his body
was not recovered, if there was a cross for him,
so now I know there is not and why. Thank you! I now also understand why I can't read the top of the memorial.

Thank you again for your help.

Carl Basenberg
Hello Dave,

Thank you for the photo showing my cousin Carl
Basenberg's name on the memorial. I do not know if
he has a cross in the cemetery, which is really
what I was hoping for, plus there is not a single
picture of the memorial that has the names on it
showing "what the memorial says above the names"
which I think would be nice so all who want to read the memorial can.

Thank you for being a part of the Find A Grave community
and for all that you do!!
