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!


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

Delawareans 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 State of Maine:

Mainers 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 received your bio suggestion for my Uncle Austin who died during WWII. Thank you very much. I am curious where you got the information that he died in Australia. As far as I know, the family was told that he died in an accident in Finschhafen, New Guinea. Thanks. Jackie Knight Aubrey

Thank you for all your research
Mr. Picket on this very special day, Memorial Day I honored on my Face book account Lieut Charles Richard Anderson. I wanted someone that had fallen from my home state. Thank you for having his name rank and information. I am thankful that I could honor him, after so many years after his sacrifice. May you have a blessed Memorial day.

Pvt Carroll Heath's Memorial
Hello. I came across an article about Pvt. Heath and found him listed here. While you aren't the manager, you are credited with having written his bio.

As I'm not the best at bio's, I'd thought I'd just send you a link to the article in case you'd like to suggest any additional info be added to it.

Find A Grave Memorial for Pvt. Heath -

Many thanks for all the work you've done here.
