Bio Photo PLEASE NOTE: Currently moving so have not been keeping up with FaG as soon as I am settled into our new place will reply to messages and be back up to speed. Thank you for your understanding and patience!

Nearly all of the memorials I have entered and flowers left are somehow related to our family, if you happen to be related would love to hear from you.

I am currently working on trying to locate the final resting place of all the men who were part of the First Special Service Force, aka Devil's Brigade or Black Devils. In July 2013, the Congressional Gold Medal was awarded, collectively, to the First Special Service Force, in recognition of its superior service during World War II.

Most memorials I have created in CT cemeteries are not family and happy to transfer to family.

Paul Arbogast
I found Paul Arbogast in Greenwood Cemetery in Allentown, PA. I took pictures of his and his wife. There was no military headstone. I will email and post the pictures when I return to California. Chuck

Re: Find A Grave Correction: Lota Metsch
Oh, BTW, I took this photo for you, and got a copy of the obituary.

> Hi Dave,
I obtained your email address from Gen Gathering, Thank you for being a volunteer.
I would like to ask for your assistance for an obituary for my great-aunt Lola Schindler Metsch who passed away 8th Aug 1982 in the Santa Cruz area. I know she married a Mr. Canfield shortly before passing away but believe her obit would be listed under her other married name of Metsch.
Appreciate your assistance

Re: Find A Grave Correction: Lota Metsch
The memorial is all yours.

> This is my grandfather's sister, my great aunt, if you would consider transferring that would be great, if not could you please change her first name to Lola, it currently reads Lota which is incorrect. Also her maiden name was Schindler.
Thanks and have a great weekend!

RE: Find A Grave Memorial# 74359298

My grandmother (Hattie Kellerman Smiley) appears in the list of children for Henrietta. Do you have any other information about this? I've searched many records and cannot find any correlation between them other than her death certificate. We were told that Hattie may have been kind of adopted, possibly by the Kellermans.
Thank you!

Theodore William Pendergraft Jr.
I was looking at the information on Find a Grave for Theodore William Pendergraft Jr. and you list his wife as Beatrice Alice Jesse Pendergraft (1908 - 1982). This was my great aunt and I knew her as Beatrice Alice ... and her father was Jesse.. but I was not aware of that being in her name. Can you tell me where that information came from?

Photographer John's marker today. There was no military marker present other than the small emblem on the corner of the marker.

Nellie B. Coates, Union Cemetery
I am doing family research and Nellie was married to an ancestor of my wife. Do you have any other information on her other than being married to Thomas Coates?
