Kirchner photos
Would you mind if I used your photos on my private family tree on ancestry? These are my great (and 2nd great) grandparents. Thank you for taking these photos!

1Lt James B. Christen
1Lt James B. Christen was pilot of a C-47 transportplane of the 36th Troop Carrier Squadron, 316th Troop Carrier Group. The airplane had tail number 41-18606 and was shot down over Sicily by "friendly fire" on 11 July 1943. His plane crashed near Gela, all on board were killed.

He took part in the battle for Sicily (operation Husky, which started on 10 July 1943)

After his death he was buried in the temporary American cemetery GELA on Sicily. He was buried in plot-grave C-32-380, date of burial was 29 July 1943.

I am writing a book about this temporary GELA Cemetery, where over 1,200 young American men and women have been buried between 1943 and 1947. You took a picture of his grave and I would like to ask your permission to use the picture you took in my book, of course you will be credited.

If you are related and/or may have his picture of documentation abut his death, hope you are willing to share.

thank you

Obits in 1933
Go to the local library (geneology section) and they can possibly find old newspaper articles and obits, or go to the local newspaper and ask if they can look in their records (they keep copies of all the daily/weekly print) for that name & date. It's all on computer now... O.K.??

I might also add that the monument was likely placed some years after his death as this style is not common to the period.

According to the cemetery book, William was a War of 1812 Vet. His son Josiah (also buried at Eagle Creek) is listed as a Civil War Vet.

Do you happen to have the photo of this grave showing the entire headstone as I want it for my cemetery book of my family headstones. I live in Florida and this is my grandfather's brother's son. He was best friends with my grandfather.

Thanks so much!
