Bio and Links
Bio Photo Researching some of the 36,000 + Army Air Forces personnel who died in the
line of duty, in non-combat missions during the World War II era in service-related accidents.
They gave their all and died in the service
of their country, but received no purple hearts
and virtually no mention in the history books
and have largely been forgotten by time.

Please use the Edit tab, and select Suggest a Correction or Provide Additional Information to make any update requests. It is much easier to handle the issue this way, rather than a personal email.

If you choose to send an email regarding any memorial here, please be very specific who you are
referring to: Name, death year and cemetery name (if possible).

I am not related to anyone I have added here in the military category. I added all my ancestors nearly ten years ago.

I am happy to update any memorial, including family links. But I DO NOT like adding census information, copies of death certificates and please do not add long obituaries to the "photo" area. The information can be condensed and pasted into the bio area. If you don't have the time to type out the obituary, just email it to me. I will add it and give you credit for finding it.
I appreciate any information that can "round out" someone's bio.

From time to time I get emails asking me where I obtained the names of linked family members, etc.
I add information from update requests "at face value." I do not keep logs of who sent them to me, or when. If I don't see a conflict, I assume the info is accurate. The information I add is only as accurate as the source material, which, of course, can be flawed.

A 1945 accident
Ran across Robert Lloyd Laird, #896982, who died in an airplane accident in Arizona in 1945. Didn't find him in your 1945 virtual cemetery so thought I'd let you know.

Re: Transfers
It sure would be great if every Find A Grave member would adopt your line of thoughtful consideration. Your promptness exceeds the vast majority by far. Also your willingness to transfer memorials to a fellow member is amongst the best I've encountered.
Cooperation being the key to making every memorial a much more meaningful one and ultimately leading to a genealogical success story honoring our ancestors.
Your excellent cooperation is very much appreciated!

Joseph Hartman
Hi Tim- I've transferred Joseph Hartman to you as requested. He is not a relation of mine. I entered him as part of finding the WWII KIAs. When you finish working on him you can either transfer him back or keep management. ....Mary

Thank you doesn't say half of how how much your edit means to me. Your hard work on behalf of those who served, perished, or were forever altered is so very much appreciated.

RE: Clayton & Leonard Jolley--Belmont
Your more then welcome. There was three other people in the area that shared there last name. I added memorials for them. They are the following people.
Winnie C Jolley 1862-1946
Linnaeus C Jolley 1849-1934
Esther Muriel Jolley 1907-1929

I hope this helps with filling in some blanks.
