|E J McHugh||Another German POW|
Have you been able to access the prison records of the German Pows held in America ?? I check with the National Archives in Washington DC and was told that all records of Germans held in America as POws were given to the Government of West Germany. If you have I am looking for a Photo and any info. on Corporal Emil Burmeister. Born Sept 9, 1923 died Jan 29, 1945. He is buried at Camp Butler ILL. (USA).
|E J McHugh||Germans intered in the USA during WW I|
I am researching German POW's who where held in the USA during WWI. So far I am finding little but do know that some where held here in Ohio ( Camp Sherman). It seems that many were at first detainees. They had served aboard German Cruisers but instead of being captured they sought a neutral port. Before America entered the war, the SMS Krown Printz Wilhelm entered the New port News (VA). The men aboard, not sure the #, were held, first as detainees but later POWs.
Do you know if any of these men are buried in America ?? Is there any report of their experience while being held in America ?? Did the 1918 flu take any of them ??

Thank for making the changes. Ich bin Deutsche. Ich bin in der Naehe von Mainz aufgewachsen.
PS. The info for Alfing Gustav is from the Volksbund Deutscher Kriegsgraeberfuersorge. Er is als Gustav Alfing, b. Oct. 21, 1923, d. Nov. 16, 1945. A second source is from a letter to the International Red Cross (found on gentracer.org) Alfing, Gustav ... 4 (originally buried at Camp Butner, now buried at Chattanooga National Cemetery, TN). The 4 after his name is a reference on what page he is listed. The page listing gives him as Gustav, Alfing (in my opinion reversal of names) German, d. 16 November 1945, buried in Camp Butler Post Cemetery, Camp Butler, NC Sec. 6, Grave 52. This letter to the IRC was from the late 1940 before some of the Camps closed and the bodies were reinterred in Post and National cemeteries.

The VA lists "your" Gustav Afling as Afling Gustav (#53067587). The cemetery also lists his surname as Gustav. I have changed it, but will accept any documentation that says otherwise. Please let me know.

Hey, Tom...I just put in the picture of the stone for Livingston and Mary...John's parents...for John. That's the location you gave. There is no marker for John at his parent's plot...sorry.
|Phil||RE: thank you|
I will send a separate email with pictures from google maps so that the location is clear.

Your new friend,

hi, i've tried several times to find this grave. without directions from the cemetery about where it is, i'm stumped. there are a lot of morehouses, and several in the new section. also, we have two feet of snow on the ground now, so flowers are not a great idea.

Thank you for the note of appreciation! I happened on to your site and left rememberances for all of your dearly departed beloved family. It was my sincere honor to do so!
I have visited Germany quite a few times and I enjoyed it so much. I was happy to find you on this site so I could visit in a different way.
Take care and have a Blessed Holiday Season!
