I'm interested in the men of the 3rd Armored Division who fought during WW II. I'm always searching for pictures of the graves and for wartime pictures of these men.
Thank you all for helping me out with these pictures

Would be happy to have Harlan Ingalls DeGroodt honored at your site. Please give a credit line for the photo to his brother, Richard Lynn DeGroodt, as is noted on the caption.
Thanks for asking,
Hi! Reference your photo request at Elmwood Cemetery in River Grove, Illinois.
I am one of the few people who actually photographs at this cemetery. There are over 70,000 burials in the cemetery, so there is no way that any photo volunteer is going to be able to find the graves unless you provide the plot location. The cemetery lots are also mostly unmarked which makes finding graves here very challenging.
If you call the cemetery they should provide you the grave plot.
Elmwood Cemetery: (708) 453-0273
The cemetery will not provide the grave plot to photo volunteers.
If you then send me the names and burial plots I should be able to provide you photos within a week or two afterwards (depending upon my schedule and Chicago weather).
Just so you know, the Find A Grave Help files also state that it is the responsibility of the photo requestor to provide the burial plot location.
If you have any questions in regards to this information, please let me know.

|Anonamouse||Archie Dustin photo request|
He has two memorials. Find A Grave Memorial# 19871569 has a photo and was the first one. I sent and edit to the owner to correct name spelling. Please note that he died in 1944. However, per cemetery records and the application for his military headstone, he was not buried in this cemetery until Apr 20, 1949. I am trying to clear the photo requests for this cemetery and have indicated yours as complete and removed.

Hi Jan-I filled the request for PVT Richard McBride. He is buried with his parents, Edward and Mary. I can add memorial pages for them if you like or if you want to, let me know.
|Kate Christianson||RE: Sgt. Deway C. Josephson|
Hi Jan, Thanks for responding. I have not heard of the grave application. Can you tell me something about it. If this man is in our cemetery, we want to have him in our records. Anything you can give me, would help. THANKS,
|Kate Christianson||Sgt. Deway C. Josephson|
Jan, My name is Kate Christianson and I am on the cemetery board for Grace Lutheran Church of Winchester, Larsen, WI. I see that you added a Sgt. Deway C. Josephson to our cemeter roster as of 4/16/14. We have no record of any Josephson's ever being buried at Grace. Could you please inform me as to where you got your information so we can do more digging so we can verify the information and update our records. Thank you. Kate Christianson, contributor # 47087454

So sad nobody keeps up cemeteries unless they can pay a caretaker.

Jan, I visited the above cemetery in Neupre, Belgium today as I had hoped to answer your photo request. BUT: They are currently renovating parts of the facility. That is why the stone board with your requested name is not accessible at the moment. Some of the other stone boards can be photographed outside the building, but not all of them, I am afraid. The supervisor told me that they are hoping to reopen the complete facility in summer 2014. Greetings from Germany, Peter.
|Anita Ingalls||RE: Harlan Degroodt|
