Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching some of the 36,000 + Army Air Forces personnel who died in the line of duty, of non-combat causes during the World War II era in service-related accidents. It is said that more
than 15,500 Army airmen were killed in airplane accidents between 1941 and 1946, within the borders of the U.S. and it's territories. 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.

For corrections, additions, or requests for transfer of memorial, 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 message.

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.

I am currently working on the Francis Clemons Walker, Jr., and Harriet Ellen Wadsworth Walker family, and imputing their information onto our website located at They are found in the Olson Family. Unless you have an objection, I would like to place your photograph of headstone of David Thomas Wadsworth from the Panaca Memorial Park into its respective place. The credit will be: "Courtesy of Find A Grave member Tim Cook, 2010. All rights reserved."

Thank you for your anticipated cooperation.

Tim, I don't remember if I thanked you for the photos you posted on my cousin's memorial. But, whether I did or not, I want you to know how much I appreciate it. Take care.

B52 Bomber Crash
Hi Tim,

Jan 10, 1957 B52 Bomber Canada - from Loring Air Force Base in Maine.

My Uncle Charles Samuel Cole was the navigator on that flight. I've been able to find 4 of the 8 killed on findagrave. I've noticed that you added information regarding this crew. I haven't been able to find the following:

Capt Marquad H.D. Myers - I believed buried Tracey, California

Lieutenant Andy Larson - I believed buried New York City

Sergeant Ray Miller - I believe buried Racine, Wisconsin.

Do you have any information on these three men that were on that flight? I have a photo of the crew that I've been able to add to the other men but I'm running into a brick wall on these three.

Thank you......
