Find A Grave Photo Request.
Well there's about 100 people who have photo requests for National Memorial Park. I have contacted that cemetery many times and they were only willing to look up the locations of only 20 people for me. However, they gave me a suggestion that if I have the individual requesters call in and then relay the info to me, I can map it on the maps I have and find it. The cemetery is huge. So yes, usually photo requesters don't have to call in, but no one wants to do the photo requests on the cemetery because it's so huge and the list is so long. So that's the situation I'm in. But I do want to help everyone with their photo requests, so I'd thought I'd give everyone the option at least. :)

Find a Grave Photo Requests
As part of my Eagle Scout Project I am fulfilling photo requests around Northern Virginia. I would like to fulfill your photo request for the person you listed for National Memorial Park, but I've already asked them to look up the locations of many people there. If you would be willing to call the cemetery (703-560-4400) and ask for the plot information on your request and relay that information to me today, Wednesday, or Thursday, we will go fulfill your request this Friday.

Thank you for transferring the memorial.

I have added the obituary to the bio and the phot has been added.

If you want to delete the photo of the obituary you can do so now that all of it's parts have been incorporated.

I have returned to doing family trees. The last time I did them was in 1997.

I retired 1 1/2 years ago. In February of this year I started to protect myself from virus, bacterias, molds and funguses. Within a week from starting treatment I found that I also had reversed the Alzhiemers I had.(Dementia with a name for it)

By the end of February I had full functions of my brain and was once again seep into Genealogy.

Finding Find A Grave gave e someplace to post all the photos of gravestones I took in Nov 1997.

I already have reached out to a cemetery 2 miles north of where I live and took photos for most of the memorials that are missing stones.

The virtual libraries might be of interest to you and some of your friends. Benton and Linn counties are the focus of my ancestry.

RE: Henry Bort

As I mentioned before I have absolutely no doubt that he is buried at Chalmette National Cemetery. One day after I retire I plan to take photos of all the graves there as time permits. I have the list of all known burials at that cemetery.

If you want I can post a photo of an unmarked grave, and can write in the comments that it is representative only.

Whatever is your pleasure.

RE: Thank yuor checking for Henry Bort
Hi Sheryl,

I have absolutely no doubt he is buried at Chalmette National Cemetery. Most of the soldiers who died at various locations in New Orleans were moved to Monument Cemetery soon after the end of the war. Eventually Monument Cemetery's name was changed to Chalmette National Cemetery.

I would estimate that 80 per cent of those whose remains were moved were identified, however, there are a couple of thousand of unknown remains. Most of the markers are nothing more than a small square stone with a number on top. I have no photos of them. As much as I would like all veterans to be remembered individually, I only take photos of named headstones because I would like to match a stone with the person's actual burial site.

As a side note, Chalmette is adjacent to the Battle of New Orleans (War of 1812) battlefield. It is also the poorest maintained national cemetery I have ever visited. A substantial percentage of the headstone are difficult to impossible to read due to erosion. I would estimate at least 25% need to be replaced.
