Bio and Links
I am originally from Davenport, Iowa, Class of 64. Right now, I live in Kingsport, TN. I recently was transfered from Ft. Polk Louisiana. I am assigned to Holston Army Ammunition Plant in Kingsport. My vacations have been taken in Iraq and Afghanistan and Kosovo. Alex Haley in his "Roots" really got my interest in family history going. I had so many questions for my grandfather when I was young but I was intimidated. He had such a stern appearance. With the dawn of Ancestry.com, research into my German roots has really taken off. Now the curtain is being pulled back and we can see into the past.
I am still trying to settle in. If you have a photo request for the national cemetery in Johnson City, TN, I think I can find the place.
Enjoy. Believe me folks, the USA is where everyone wants to go for freedom and democracy. It is a resource we all need to protect and our flag is a symbol to the world for that freedom.

Warren Adam Viator 73777218
Mr. Koenig,

I seen you have Warren and his wife being buried at Memorial Park Cemetery in New Iberia, Louisiana. I'm holding his obituary in my hands that was printed by the local newspaper "The Daily Iberian" and it states as follows: Services for Warren Adam Viator, 90, will begin 9.am. Thursday at Evangeline Funderal Home Chapel with Deacon Ken Waguespack officiating. Interment will be in Broussard Cemetery at Bayou Petite Anse.

Bayou Petite Anse Cemetery is in Iberia Parish but it's in the community of Derouen that lies between New Iberia and Delcambre if your not familiar. I have myself many ancestors buried there since I'm part of that family. If this is your relative as I can gather and you don't have a copy of his obituary just let me know. It also has a picture of him in the obituary.

RE: Florence Warren
Your suggested change showed a Jane Addams as her father.

You're very welcome! I will head over and put the same photo on his wife's memorial if you'd like.

RE: Hugh Henry
The stone in the picture isn't actually on his grave. It's a quarter of a mile west on the site where the church stood. I couldn't find the actual cemetery. It's apparently on private property that is fenced and overgrown.

Hi Gary - Yes, John's stone reads year of death as 1908. I tried taking photos on two days at different times of day to get the best light, but his stone is rather worn. Thanks

Re: Isaiah Bloch
I couldn't help but take a slightly more artistic shot of his grave with the tree in full bloom. You'll have to ask the creator of the plot to add the updated information about dates and marriage to Amelia Bloch to his memorial.

P.S. - Sorry for the previous message sent by accident.
