William McDermott at Holy Cross
Hi Tom,

The William McDermott at Holy Cross Cemetery in Colma, CA is not the gentleman you are looking for. This William is a 6 year old boy.

But, my curiosity was peaked, and wondered if you have seen memorial #91347100, Dr. William Patrick McDermott. I am not sure if this is the William McDermott you are looking for, but he was in the Civil War, but his pension record only had California Infantry listed.

Good luck with your search.

RE: John C. Van Duzee
Hi Tom,

You're correct on the birthplaces for the Van Duzee brothers and I made the appropriate changes on the captions for their gravestone. I also made the same changes on my Ancestry tree. The Van Duzee boys' mother and father married 21 Nov 1835 in Exeter, NH, and by the time the Civil War started they were back in Exeter after stays in Pittsfield, NH, and Woodstock, VT; hence the confusion. Thanks for bringing this to my attention.

Owen Gaffney 1877
F.Y.I. ....
Owen is in the mass grave with 40,000 deceased at Holy Cross cemetery in an area called Calvary. There are no markers to identify graves .... just a very large section with one monument identifying it. I've already claimed the Find A Grave limit of 21 requests so I can't send you the photos I usually upload to the memorial pages.

GOODRICH - Fairlawn- OKC
Well sorry to say there is no marker of any kind...sad if he is the civil war vet you are looking for...but..I did go through the records & discovered a Lydia, & a Grace, that were not on here. I added them, & thought they might help validate that you have the right guy. About the Marker, we had a gentleman (who has himself passed) working Fairlawn cemetery trying to get all the missing military markers ordered & set...apparently the law had changed, (as you probably know), that the cemetery caretakers can no longer state, & order a military stone for the soldiers, but that family has to be found & get their approval first! (maybe it was a "North" & "south" thing), family secrets? who knows, anyway, maybe you can help get him a marker through your research. If you need anything else, feel free to holler...good luck, G

RE: Ezra Hicks stone misplacement
Hi Tom -

Are you able to "donate" your photo requests this week to a project at a National Cemetery ? (at CHNC, where the Ezra Hicks stone is).

Hannibal Bickford, Gig Harbor Cemetery, Gig Harbor, WA
When documenting the old Gig Harbor Cemetery - I searched the plot areas well - uncovering many - but sadly never a stone for Hannibal Bickford...

Of the 39 graves that I found no stones - - he was, of course, one of those... so entered what I could on his memorial page....

Since then - - 19 stones (made well after the burials) were recovered - - - but sadly - - again - - Hannibal Bickford was not included..

So - - perhaps he never had a stone - - just don't know..
