Bio and Links
Bio Photo      I enter records here on Find A Grave for two reasons: First to help others find the graves of lost family members and second to remember our War Hero's who have "Given Their All" for our country!

If you'd like me to fix any of the records that I maintain ... please click on the "Edit" button on the top right of the record, click on "Suggest a Correction" ... Enter your note and/or correction and I'll fix them as quickly as possible.

When requesting a transfer use the edit tab on the memorial and follow the below from F-A-G. Or the request will be ignored.

From F-A-G

"Explain your relationship in the request! Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc) are not required to be transferred. Keep in mind that the original contributor may also be related to the memorial and may not make the transfer. Bulk surname requests should not be made."

     I'm currently working on updating and entered Soldiers and Sailors who "Gave Their All" during World War II. To see more on this project please click on my website below...

     I originally started researching my Family Tree when my oldest son, Chris, came home from school one day and said that they had to write up their family tree as a project. This, of course, led me to many cemeteries and I quickly became interested in them also.

     I've always enjoyed history and the two fell together.

     Again, If I've created a record that someone needs deleted (since some families do not want their loved ones on the internet) or that you want me to update please let me know and I'll be glad to update it for you.

Thanks for the information you have included for my 5th Great Grandfather. Ann Lake was my great grandmother. Their daughter, Mary Polly Runyon, my 4th great grandmother. Thank you for the work you do. I am grateful for you and others. I found my father's grave through and find-a-grave including the picture of the grave. My parents were divorced and I was 12 the last time I saw him. He was a veteran of WWII.

I was entering McLaughlin's into Silverbrook and noticed that Kim has put one of yours in. I am sure if you contact her she will transfer him to you.

RE: Sgt Robert J Singleton

It always feels good to fill in the gaps, so I'm glad I could add a photo to Sgt. Singleton's memorial page and provide an update. The photograph of his gravestone was among others I had taken in that cemetery. Thanks for all you do to honor those in our miliary who have passed on.

Isaac Jester
Thank you friend, btw sent you some links--did you notice his GRANDSON (son of George Henry Jester) was KIA in 1944? Seems the family line was pro military, lol.

AND YOU HAVE TO LOOK UP THE BOTKIN CANDY history, OMG, gave up candy for quite a while, roflmfo!
Surprised with you having been into history you hadn't known it...definitely a good read!

RE: PFC Howard C Shipp
Thank you so much. Funny... family always said it was the Battle he was killed in, so I never bothered to check it out! Thanks for that.

RE: Pvt John W Dunning

Yes. He married Maggie Parsons in 1868. She died in Kennett Square PA in 1898.

The Confederate John Dunning is a more distant relation. He apparently lead an interesting life.

Not sure if you aware of the 'poison candy' case that happened in Dover. Confederate John's nephew was involved in that. If you haven't heard of it just look up Cordelia Botkin.

Charles Dutton and Lillian Dutton
I just wanted to touch base with you and let you know that F.A.G. has merged our Memorials for Charles Dean Dutton and for Lillian Rose Treglown Dutton. None of the information, photos, and flowers on any of the Memorials was lost or deleted. F.A.G. has transferred the Memorials to me, but has retained your name as the original creator of the Memorials. Thank you for your kind offer to transfer your Memorials to me. I have left a special note of thanks and a link to your Profile Page on each Memorial.

Again, thank you for your kindness and willingness to transfer these two Memorials to me.
