Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started using Findagrave for my genealogy research and am now adding the veterans who have passed away from the obituaries in my hometown newspaper.

I am also involved in helping the people in the Netherlands find information about the US soldiers they have adopted who are buried in Margraten Cemetery.

I live in Florida, originally from Pennsville, NJ. My families are Zimmerman, Brandriff, Earl, Harris and Abel all from the Cumberland County area of New Jersey.

Another Child
On the Obituary information for William Hamilton Adams, there is a child named Ned Adams, He had a twin brother named Ted Adams who also died as an infant, I have their certificates. Please add his name to the listing of the children of William and his wife Delia Clarise Adams. William and Delia's son Royale Roy Adams is my Grandfather. Of course he died before I was born in 1935 so I never met him.

We've asked the other contributor to unlink since his is the "cenotaph". In the meantime, we have them both linked.

Arne Knut Hoisholt
Thank you for pointing this duplicate out. Since Arne was a part of my family and I have all of the information regarding his life, college years, a photo, his parents and his wife's families on his site, I am not going to delete my memorial. I did not know about the War Graves memorials when I did this. They have no information on him, in fact, they don't even have his birth date. For future generations of my family and Arne's family, my memorial gives valuable information, whereas, the War Graves gives no information whatsoever. I feel my memorial for Arne is much more important than the one you mentioned. Thank you for making me aware of the War Graves group, I appreciate what they are doing, however, when a family member makes a memorial this should not be considered a duplicate when so much information is included.

Thank you for posting Hannah Wright
Dear Mrs. Laura,

Thank you for putting the lovely Iris on my Aunt Hannah Hand Wright’s grave. My husband, Wooduff (Bud) Hand, Jr. said that his grandmother, Loretta Whilden Hand’s sister, Bessie, lived in Pennsville, NJ.

Good luck on finding the U.S Soldiers in the Netherlands. This is such a kind thing for you to do for those who are unable.

May God bless you in your efforts.

Best regards,

Mr. De Christie
I made the change to Mr. De Christie. Names such as these are often spelled both ways, with and without a space. Thanks for pointing it out to me. You can go ahead and delete your entry. Warm regards.
