Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired businessman who enjoys genealogy as a hobby. I find that genealogy and "Find a grave" go hand in hand and its easy to do both at the same time and both are very rewarding.In adding Memorials for those in my family I have added memorials for many non-relatives in hope that it will help others as others have helped me. If I've submitted a relative of yours and you would like it transferred to you, just ask. I live in the Omaha metro area and thats where most of my photos were taken.Researching Bender, Ausdemore,Hittner, German,Ternus, Bockholt, Hatzenbuehler, Kramer, Wickelman and many others. Most of My family came from Germany in the Mid 1800s and settled in the North Eastern Nebraska German farming comunities and spread from there.In my research if I run across a grave of someone in the Military that is Killed in Action they get special attention and i try to find out as much as i can about them and put it on the Memorial. We owe it to these Heros and they should not be forgotten.I authorize anyone to use my photos for any reason."Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you." ~~~Princess Diana

Happy New Year, Loren. I know it's a bit far from Omaha, but maybe something can be found to locate the burial location for Flt. Off. Darrel D. Copple Memorial# 141162683

Hi Loren i saw your post on shanes page and it got me interested. I was able to locate some info on the unit which had high mortality from Spanish Flu in Oct 1918. The 88th Div did not arrive France until August 1918 and wee to relieve the 29th. While waiting to take their positions in the trenches they were hit by the flu and lost over 500 men many more were incapacitated, almost sure your man was a flu victim.

RE: Kenneth Wallenstein
You are welcome very much. I photographed the cemetery last year but have not had time to put all of the photos on here yet. Let me know if there are any others in my area that you would like and I will do them first. I hope you enjoy your day.
