Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm addicted to Genealogy so my wife says. I've been doing it for about fifteen years. Taking pictures of all the kin I never got to meet. We were told we were the last of the Reece's "NOT"!! I started out with about ten names and have over six thousand five hundred. I'm really glad there are people who will help you with your research. FindAGrave is another tool for newcomers to Genealogy and Veterans. If you find any errors or would like for us to correct the info that was supplied to us please use the edit tab then the suggest a correction (SAC) bar.

My brother Jim & I are currently working on all the NC Vietnam KIA/MIA's Grave sites. After 8 years of searching, we've located all of the resting places for these brave men & women who paid the ultimate price, over 1900 of them. This doesn't mean we are idle. Now we are looking for their photos. The search for all Vietnam KIA/MIA's goes on.

Lt. Leland McCants
Thanks for your email about Leland McCants III. I actually left my note and offering on another memorial that was already in place for Leland (#23648776, created 12-30-2007),which still seems to be in place as well as the new one you created this month #132844797, with much more information and wonderful photos of the young man I knew in Officers' Candidate School and in Vietnam. Hard to believe we were all that young once! My wife is our primary Find A Grave contact, but I go in every now and then. I know that may not be correct for Leland to have 2 memorials, but honoring him in that way is so appreciated. I came home with a Bronze Star and a Purple Heart, Leland didn't get to come home at all. I've been blessed enough to have a family of my own, a career, and I moved on - I wish Leland had had those life experiences and opportunities too. A life cut too short. May he rest in peace. Tom, I thank you for your service and caring about Leland.

RE: Byrdville Cemetery
FYI .. the guy who originally added it to Find A Grave Kenneth.. listed her as Permella McCants .. but I'm pretty sure the spelling is Permelia .. like her daughter's .. if you ask him .. he'd probably agree to let you take it over .. and then you could fix the name if you know for sure that is the correct spelling ... If I ever find out how to do a tracing (rubbing) .. I'd be happy to go by and see if that would help to read it .. but would have to do very carefully as it is pretty fragile ! ..

RE: Byrdville Cemetery
Hi.. thanks for the kind words .. when I found her marker close to her daughters I considered it a real find too .. then I had to research to be sure the other Permela was actually her daughter.

Unfortunately it is pretty worn and I was unable to read it ! ..

Find A Grave #132844797 and #132835994 are the same person but place of burial is different. Just thought you would want to know.
