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!

A Delawarean by birth, A Soldier & Christian by choice, and a proud American patriot!


I've completed the following States displaying World War II Soldiers & Sailors who died during the war:

Delawareans Who Gave Their All - WW II

Mainers Who Gave Their All - WW II

Marylanders Who Gave Their All - WW II

New Hampshirites Who Gave Their All - WW II

Vermonters Who Gave Their All - WW II

I'm currently working on the District Of Columbia and the State of New York:

District Of Columbia's Who Gave Their All - WW II

New Yorkers Who Gave Their All - WW II


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.

Hi Russ, I just found a cousins memorial page that was not on your list of those who gave their all. Please add "Find A Grave Memorial# 9207275". Thank you, Charles Riend

BERNHARD is in fact the correct spelling despite what some other sources may say. One can see this in the birth/baptismal records of the 1st Lutheran Church (Norwegian) of Portland

RE: Pvt Paul Otto Miller
I just saw the grave photo and the obit on my uncle's page. I want to say THANK YOU to those who memorialized him. He died so young and was taken so soon after he signed up. His brother and sisters have passed on but would be very happy to know his memorial is here.

Stronge, Robert Millar; 2nd Lieut.
Re: Memorial #3638401
Thanks so much for what you do! After 19 years of research I had almost given up hope of learning the fate of my father's American cousin, 2nd Lieut. Robert Millar Stronge who was lost during WWII. Thanks to you I can now inform my father that Bobbie was lost over Spain in a C-47 crash in 1944.
Thank you for this closure. Please keep up this invaluable work.

Blanche Lockwood Foulk Holston,43082798;and Albert Hathorne Foulk,42376117. They are interred in Odd Fellows Cemetery Milford, DE. I would like to have all siblings together in each of the memorials and not two separate Sibling accounts. Would appreciate your help.

This should read Robert T. INGRAM. He is the son of Sallie LYNCH and her first husband. Thank you for the great work you do, especially for honoring our military veterans. May God bless you!

But you have the wrong Swamp Church. His obituary says Swamp Lutheran Church, West Cocalico Twp. (i.e. Swamp Church Reinholds).

Hi Russ,

No problem, I just corrected the memorial to reflect the stone info.

Lots of corrections at Beach Ridge!

Thanks again,
