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

Thank you for the Lastovica edits
While trying to look up how it was that these indeed his parents, I came across the obituary for his brother. Thank you so much, Loren, for sending.

To get your request for a photo of this grave site at Live Oak Memorial Park in Monrovia, California it would help if you could call the cemetery and obtain the grave location and add that information to your request.

They are very busy but they do respond to requests but you might have to leave them your email or telephone number so that they can contact you with the grave location at a time to suit their work schedule.

Their number is (626) 359-5311

Kind regards

RE: George F. Fowler
I believe Alexander Michael was Margaret's second husband and may have died in a camp in the US of influenza. He may have been heroic to the young George, however. George's father "Floyd" was called "Sailor Fowler" in one article I found, so may have been in the Navy at one time. Seems he deserted the family in 1913 or so. So, Alexander may have been more of a model for George. Thank you for checking, I thought of you first because the requests I have filled for you were for soldiers killed in action. Their ultimate sacrifice should be remembered with more than just a name on stone rarely seen. Thanks, Kevin
