Please check out my WWII virtual cemeteries! |
If you have any photo requests available, please make a few, as at the 20 per week rate, it will take me 10 years to get my 73,000 WWII KIA entries completed.
If you see incorrect entries or duplicates (dups usually from the Findgrave crashmaster)...let me know asap!!! If you would like me to transfer a memorial, I will transfer them.
MY GOAL IS HONOR AS MANY AMERICAN VETS THAT GAVE THEIR LIVES, AS I POSSIBLY CAN, ESPECIALLY WWII, AS IT WAS THE WAR THE CHANGED THE WORLD!!!
ANY WWII KIA'S, YOU MAY COME ACROSS, PLEASE CONTACT ME SO I CAN ADD THEM TO MY VIRTUAL CEMS.

Do you know where I could look to possibly get more info?
|pamela carnot||RE: Edward P Carnot|
A Mt. Nebo in Fl., but I don't know which one. Picture was given to me.
|John Dowdy||Donald Robinson Hill|
His memorial lists a Ruth Nitschke Campbell as his spouse. She does have presence at Florida Memorial Garden , but associated with another soul, probably her subsequent husband.(Colonel Robert J Campbell 1918-1989).
So wherever you got the info that Donald Robinson Hill was interred at Florida Memorial, they need to do a bit more research because he is not there under that name. Maybe the originator of the memorial, Hungrycoyote” (Member # 48940094) needs a touch.
|John Dowdy||Donald Robinson Hill|
Shane i believe these memorials are the same person. 170088736 probably died in Florida but buried in Massachusetts 171369989.
OK to use Arthur's gravemarker photo that you took on his page in the Kenora Great War Project, credit given to you?

|valdersviking ||Lt George Goddard and his crew #4429616|
George and his crew have been remembered and honored by the Czech villagers for 70 years. Memorials have been dedicated at the crash site for their fallen airmen.
Their World War 2 story was chronicled in the book; "Miss Fortune's Last Mission" by William J. Boyce/John H. Torrison with John DeMers (Bright Sky Press)
www.missfortuneslastmission.com for more information, photos and videos.
I hope that you will add this information to their Find A Grave page. Bill, John, and some of the crew's families visit their grave on Memorial Day 2015. I would be happy to sent you a copy of our book. Thank you
|John Dowdy||DOG TAG FOUND IN HAWAII|
thank you for responding John, I will send you a picture of it and here is the information you requested...
Shane a lady reached out to me she found this 44th BG fliers dog tag on a beach she wants to try to find descendants to give it to any help?
FORREST E. BARTAY
It was found on the beach in Hawaii. Sand Island beach park on August 12, 2016.
I did look up his name and I did not see any surviving next of kin, so I just want to have it go to someone and someplace that it will be valued and appreciated. And maybe this dogtag might have a bigger story than meets the eye, so I am also curious but don't know how to look it up.
If you would like me to send it to you, I can surely do that. I would ask if you would kindly share any interested facts that you find so that I can have stories to tell the grandkids.
|jeffvilardo||RE: WWII KIA's|
Here is a virtual cemetery for the men who's name is inscribed on the memorial in Mt. Ephraim:
One man, James Busey was accidentally added. Actually, his father, Samuel was inscribed on the memorial as he lived in Mt. Ephraim and was the point of contact for his son. Somehow things got mixed up. James was from the Washington D.C. area.
I also wrote and posted stories for several of these men on Facebook:
and one more that I posted later on:
I have tried to put together a life story of sorts for each person and post it on Facebook on the anniversary of their death. Still a work in progress.
|Kathie Rodgers||RE: Edward Novak #154179232|
Yes that is the same Edward Novak listed on the memorial at Greenwood Cemetery. I have found out that the memorial is everyone from the area who died in the war but not necessarily buried there. So will you be deleting the other Edward Novak from Greenwood. There is another Edward Novak who served in WW II and is buried in Swan Lake but he survived the war. I was walking Greenwood today and found a headstone I didn't know if you had I will upload if you don't the inscription told of this person being captured at the Battle of the Bulge and died somewhere in Germany. It's for PFC. Charles A. Lubke do you have a memorial for him?
