I would like to pick up your photo request but Sparkman Hillcrest (SH) does not like to provide burial locations to volunteers, citing privacy issues. Your cooperation is needed in order for requests to be filled. The volunteers will need you to call SH and request the location. Their phone number is 214-363-5401. Once you have the location, please add it to your request. Thanks.

RE: Sarah Catherine
Please send this request from her memorial page through the Edit tab. That way I have her number and can work better from that. I might be able to help but not until I can see her memorial page will I know. Thanks, Beckie

Sgt. Ben Colecchi
Hi! Thanks for sponsoring the memorial. That was very nice! Fun that you are related, even if it is so distantly! I'd claim any WWII hero I could connect to! Actually, my hero is a sideways GGGUncle. That is how I found Sgt. Colecchi. A friend an I have been working at researching my Uncle and his Grampa, who both served in WWII in the Aleutians. My Uncle was killed during a raid in '43, his Grampa survived and became a career AF officer. Anyway, Sgt. Colecchi served with them. That is how I discovered him. I end up "adopting" WWII heroes, and he appealed to me. Also, the wing pin that he is wearing in his picture . . . those are my favorite type! So another reason to research him. I got a picture of the actual plane he served on and the one that was shot down that last mission. Really fun to see. I wish I could find a photo of my Uncle's actual plane!

Thanks again! I'm way behind with my Find-A-Grave typing! I've been working away at other Aleutians WWII casualties who served with my Uncle and some are very elusive!

SSgt Ben Colecchi
Hi, again! I've got one more pic, so I was wondering if you would consider removing one more of the news articles. I've got so many articles now that I have decided to make a page about him on the personal website my sister and I have. You sure can find some heroic stories of normal young men who did amazing things during WWII! Thanks!

Hi Cindy, I do not have my data on Ancestry, but I do have a web site at with quite a bit of data. I will send you a separate email. Oh, and I was able to review your web site on Ancestry. Thank you for this.

RE: Alice Wissinger Colecchi
Hi Cindy, thank you for your reply. Susanna's last name has been an interesting challenge and I am so glad to learn that Youtsey is the correct name. To date, I have been unable to locate any other information about Susanna. Harrison Wissinger was also an interesting person. For some reason, he used Harrison Berkey on his military records. I have him first enlisted in the 84th Infantry in 1861; wounded at Chancellorsville on May 3, 1863; and deserted at Potomac Creek on Aug 25, 1863. His military pension was therefore rejected.

I've been trying to get Harrison memorial page updated, but no action to date. It would be nice to get Alice connected. I've been unable to locate the burial of children William Henry and Elizabeth Wissinger Smith. Also, granddaughter, Mary C. Smith, who was adopted by Harrison and Susanna.

If you have any additional information on any of these people, I would love to see it.

RE: Sgt Ben Colecchi
Thanks for removing the one! I'm working at typing up some of the news stories so I can make a detailed bio section.

My GGGUncle was with the 36th Squadron up in the Aleutians and was killed on a raid in April 1943. I've been reading through squadron histories and Aleutians campaign stuff and sometimes I find an interesting story that I can't help but follow up on! i.e. Sgt. Colecchi.

Right now I am working on him and a bombardier who served with my Uncle. Between the two, I keep going back and forth between PA and TX! Quite a change, too!

I'll let you know about the other articles, once I've typed some up. ;o)

Ben Colecchi
Hi! Thanks for the obits for SSgt. Colecchi. I was wondering, though, if you would please remove the obit for his mother. As it is on his Mother's memorial already, I would like the room to add another picture of Ben himself on his memorial. Thanks so much!

RE: Emmett Dionisi SR
I will transfer to you I just put it up because I found that death Certificate. I could not send that via this message system

Did you notice they are 2 other people with the last name of Dionisi at that cemetery
