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.

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."


Also note from FAG rules:

"No photos of obituary's are allowed, No bio's in flower sections are allowed. The record added to the right cemetery first may stay and the burial unknown will be deleted regardless of the dates.


     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.

RE: Sgt Clifford E Cadle

You are very welcome. I was thrilled to find that his section was one that got wreaths this year. My father is buried just up the hill, and it was an honor to fulfill your request. Please feel free to use the photos for anything you need.

Private David H VANE

My name's Véronique GREINER, known as Ingrid STEINER, french writer.
I haven't been practising English for ages, so I hope this message is correct.

I have adopted the grave of an American Soldier that used to live in Hastings, Dakota County, Minnesota. This soldier is First Lieutenant Arthur Vincent MARES. He died on August 16, 1944.

So I now have to bring flowers as often as possible on the grave in the American Military Cemetery in Dinozé, next to Epinal, Vosges, France (plot A rang 10 grave 27).

The Association that gave me the certificate of adoption is U.S Memory Grand Est France.
I'm trying to know if he still have family.

My children also have adopted two soldiers, we have found the family of one of them, it has been a very emotional moment for us, especially for me. This family couldn't believe it and they are very happy to know this.

My son's soldier is the Private David H VANE from Maryland, dead on May 21st 1945, I'm searching the family left too and sent twoo letters to twoo odl men in Maryland, the names were matching with twoo of this soldier's brothers, but no answer for instance.

If you or anybody else can help us for Arthur Vincent MARES and David H VANE, it will be wonderful for me and my son.

I didn't mean to delete his wife. It erased her numbers when I was adding his mothers name and then I couldn't get it back.
