|Bio and Links|
I am an amateur military historian and genealogist. I am interested in researching the burial locations of U.S. military service men and women, particularly at Arlington National Cemetery in Fort Myer, Virginia, and the U.S. Naval Academy Cemetery in Annapolis, Maryland.|
I am also researching my family tree, particularly the Shewan family members who originated in Aberdeenshire, Scotland and their descendents throughout the the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
My Scots great-grandfather, William J. Shewan (1867 - 1947) and his son, my grandfather, William W. Shewan (1895 - 1973) arrived at Ellis Island on July 2, 1911 and settled in Erie, Pennsylvania.
In addition to my paternal line, I am researching other family lines, including:
* Akre (originally Aakre in Norwegian)
Other cemeteries of interest:
* Air Force Academy Cemetery, Colorado Springs, CO
* Barrancas Nat'l Cemetery, Pensacola, FL
* Congressional Cemetery, Washington, DC
* Fort Rosecrans Nat'l Cemetery, San Diego, CA
* Golden Gate Nat'l Cemetery, San Francisco, CA
* Hollywood Cemetery, Richmond, VA
* Oak Hill Cemetery, Washington, DC
* Quantico Nat'l Cemetery, Triangle, VA
* Rock Creek Cemetery, Washington DC
* Soldiers' Nat'l Cemetery, Washington, DC
* West Point Cemetery, West Point, NY
Some of my photo contributions can be seen here.
To all the Find A Grave photo volunteers who have been kind enough to take photos of my family's gravestones at my request over the past year, I thank you most gratefully for your time and effort. With graves throughout the United States and Canada, it would not be feasible for me to visit them all and take my own photos. I am extremely grateful to Find A Grave, and to the photo volunteers, for helping me to research my family.

|Dear Cousin||Mary Shewan headstone|
You had asked for a photo of Mary Shewan from Oak Woods Cemetery in Chicago. I added the photo but next to her was a stone for Katie Irvine, made in the same style as Mary's. So I added Katie Irvine and her photo to Find a Grave. They might be related. I also took a photo of both of the stone together if you need it. Gary

With a few remembered names from my mother, plus your ancestry lists, I've found more of my ancestors ― thanks shared-ancestry-cousin!

|Sandra Walczak||RE: Thank You|
The cemetery had him listed in the Pieta section. But the stone did not have his death date.
|Diane Rawa Bronakowski||RE: J. E. Southworth|
Your are very welcome
|Donna Holmes Bonaccorso||RE: Shirley Swance Shewan|
You're most welcome. I was wondering if you had any information or dates on Harry E Swance and Opal Luella Holmes Swance (Shirley's parents)?
I have scanned a couple of photos from the Minto Township history book that have Shewan's in them. Let me know if you want me to email them to you.

Thank you so very much for adding my mother's and father's headstone from Arlington National Cemetery. Living in CA, I do not get to East Coast often enough...and, when I do, I never can make the trip to Arlington to get the photos myself.
