Greetings Nadia, Would you consider transferring my Uncle's memorial to me? He was my Mother's brother who died as an infant. Thanks for all you do for the Find A Grave Family!

Sgt. Miles James

Can you give me some more info on this marker. Is this is actual gravesite or is this just a memorial? Some MOH websites say his grave is unknown or in Norfolk. Do you have any info?

Thanks, K.

RE: Albert Taylor - Pleasant Cemetery Hampton VA
Hi. I really wish I could help, I'm really not sure where he was located. I know the cemetery was not taken care of well. And the pictures shows shrubs or woods in the back of it, so maybe it was along the woods. I wish I could help more.

Thank you so much for taking the time to look for her headstone. I hope it is still there and not damaged or something. Thanks again, Jack Eslick
