Bio and Links
Bio Photo American ancestry traced back to Spotsylvania, Rappahannock, and Augusta counties of Virginia in the early 1700s. Ancestors fought with the American rebel patriots of the Revolutionary war, one great great great grandfather fought at the Battle of New Orleans, and great grandfathers of both my parents' families fought for Virginia in the Confederacy -> 50th Va Inf., 8th Va Cav., 5th Va Inf, and another, unknown cavalry unit.

My father, Paul E. Deatherage, served with US Navy Patrol Bombing Squadron VPB-119 in the Philippines during World War II. He was the only member of his deployment crew to survive the war.

Baker Family
Hi Dave,

I think we are related. My great-grandfather George Washington Baker is the brother of John Baker, to Charles Raymond, Arthur Lloyd, and to your mother June Eva Baker.

RE: Tablets of the Missing - Manila
Actually, another FindaGraver told me who to email at the cemetery, and they were happy to photograph the sailor's name on the tablet, and email it back. Send me the name on the memorial, and I'll search and find the email address for you.

Request to use a photo
Hello Dave, I recently created a memorial for a cenotaph which was placed in the hometown of a soldier who died in The Philippines. He was Robert I. Suhl, memorial 56763741. I saw that you placed a great photograph of his unit on that memorial. May I please use this photograph on his cenotaph memorial (memorial 143944709 ) Lower Cemetery, Phillipston, Ma. ? I have noted on the memorial his actual burial place and linked to it directly.
Thank You for your consideration. James
