In my short time partaking of this hobby, I find myself spending extra time to clean-up around veterans grave markers. I am also seeing a disturbing trend of where a photo request is made, a member here claims it, but does not post the picture. I cannot understand the reasoning behind this trend. Surely upsets the person who made the request in hopes of verifying where their loved one is buried and no photo proof is posted here. I am making an effort to find the older photo requests that have been made, claimed, but no picture posted.|
If you have already set-up a memorial here, I hope you do not mind my putting up an extra picture. Early morning and late afternoon sun light seems to add a nice glow to the markers, so I post those pictures as well. If you do not want a picture I have posted on your memorial, please let me know and I will remove it.
Being a military veteran and proud of my heritage, I would not take kindly to seeing anyone do anything to desecrate the American flag. It does amaze me though to see an American flag on a Confederate soldier's grave. They should certainly be allowed to be proud of their heritage, they earned it.

Sorry Try that method some other time. I found Amy F's death, 23 Feb 2003 - stone just had not been marked when photo taken (if ever).
Tried to locate their Obits? I have not had any luck yet on line. If local, you might try Micro film in the library for the Virginian Pilot. It seems that she was listed as living in Portsmouth at time of death.

When I googled AMY F (wife's name on his marker with open death date) for an obit, she would be 89 now (1924), I did not find her but it brought up an Amy F Landrum who is listed in Newport News, Va. You may want to pursue that in white pages, etc and talk to her if found. I located my birth fathers family at age 60 by checking with a widow who acknowledged "I know about you."
good luck - question never asked doesn't get an answer.

The memorial for Thomas M Landrum was already posted in July of 2009 in Greenlawn Memorial Park and has a photo of the headstone. Your post of yesterday is a duplicate and should be deleted.
Your initial request was for Chesapeake Memorial Gardens (which is over 15 miles away) Since he is buried in Greenlawn that explains why there was no record of a Thomas Landrum when I drove to Chesapeake Memorial Gardens for you yesterday.

Thanks for posting the information and picture of G. T. (Truslow's) tombstone. For my information, the stone only had the inscription "G. T.", how did you find out that the last name was Truslow?? I need to do more research on this relative of mine.
Thanks again for all that you do for Find A Grave.

Hi This is Janice does she not have a headstone?
|LJH||RE: Pvt J Beville|
Thanks for your photo. I'm glad to see it and the many others you've taken at the Old City Cemetery.
