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.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It's the SOLDIER,
not the reporter who has given us Freedom of the Press...

It's the SOLDIER,
not the poet, who has given us Freedom of Speech...

It's the SOLDIER,
not the campus organizer, who has given us the Freedom to Demonstrate...

It's the SOLDIER,
not the lawyer, who has given us the Right to a Fair Trial...

It's the SOLDIER who:
SALUTES THE FLAG,
SERVES UNDER THE FLAG
and whose COFFIN IS DRAPED BY THE FLAG.

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.

Russ,

I completed the transfer. You are welcome to keep him. I am just doing a nearly complete inventory of the grave stones in that cemetery.

Sgt. Burton A. Eyler
Hi Russ,
I saw a fine photo of Burton Eyler's headstone on Ancestry.com. I'll go back to Mt. Zion cemetery and look harder, and take my own image.

RE: The early days ....
I totally understand - sometimes when I submit a spreadsheet - the system does not catch ANY dups - and then it's hours of hand-weeding....sigh...technology! :)
