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.

Father Dennis Edward O'Brien, USMC

Hello Russ, I don't see John Hill on your list? Was he from a different state?

RE: Cathedral Cemetery Wilmington
Death date on S Cantera is 1949, not 44 as per your request. Misprint or different Sam.

RE: Cathedral Cemetery Wilmington
Next time. I just got back from there about an hour ago. Neither of the 2 in 4D are there. Of the 13 I looked for in 1EC, I only found one headstone.

Thank you for the information on Walter. He is related to my husband and when my husband was a boy Walter would take him to the movies. His mother Helen Seal Wiegand after Walter was declared MIA spent a great deal of money trying to find him just after the war. Helen died never knowing what had happend to Walter according to what was told the family and had told everyone that this was just a marker. I will put a note in the information on Walter. Thank you


I know my Uncle Bruce Russell Brown was also a pilot and is still MIA. you can read his information onhttp://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=Brown&GSfn=Bruce&GSmn=Russell&GSbyrel=all&GSdyrel=all&GSob=n&GRid=56362529&df=all&

I have provided DNA to JPAC in hopes someday they will find him.

Cathedral Cemetery Wilmington
I'm not sure that the first 4 of your requests listed for this cemetery are buried there. There is no record for them at the Diocese grave look-up.

Corp. Water L. Fox
Hello Mr. Picket,
My name is Deneen Behrens. I am the Poppy Chair for the American Legion Auxiliary Unit 2 in Dover DE.
I was wondering if you had any other information on Walter L. Fox.
I am preparing a presentation for our Posts Memorial Day ceremony and I felt that we should include some information on Walter L. Fox.
As a post, we do go to his grave every Memorial Day and Veterans Day for a small service. I personally go more often to give the man the respect that he is due.
Most members of our American Legion Post and Auxiliary Unit only know that the Post was named after him and that he was the first Soldier to die from Delaware during WWI. I have searched the internet but I have come up empty. If there is anything that you may have or if you can point me in the right direction It would mean a lot to me.
Thanking you in advance.
Deneen Behrens
