Bio and Links
Bio Photo I retired from the US Army in 1996 after 27 years as a soldier. I worked for another 16 years on Fort Polk with JRTC (Joint Readiness Training Center). I feel privileged & honored that I had the opportunity to serve with so many selfless soldiers, both active and retired. I will always remember these great Americans, many who were significant in my career as friends, comrades & mentors. Thank you all for your service both as soldiers and citizens of our great American. I have always had a desire to trace my family heritage; now that I am completely retired I have the time to pursue this goal. I have been able to find many of my distant ancestors burial places because of the selfless efforts of these volunteer individuals who for over a decade now have been going to cemeteries, talking picture, notes and building virtual memorials. I DO APPRECIATE ALL THE WONDERFUL SERVICE YOU ALL PROVIDE. THANK-YOU SO MUCH...

Perhaps it would've been better if Jesse HAD been lynched. I'm told he beat his wife also. Should've been prosecuted for murder, at the very least. Tragic, tragic story.

RE: Grace Foreman
If I follow my line correctly, Jesse was father-in-law to a maternal great aunt of mine. Just stumbled on this and am mortified. Poor child!

RE: Appreciation
Thank you for the kind words. I guess I figure, I started doing this before it was so popular so I sucked up everyone's relatives. LOL
I love that it has connected loved ones with their families. I also do NOT mind transferring to those families, not a bit.
If you ever want relatives, all you have to do is ask. I know family can add a lot more to these memorials than I can just by searching out what little bit of info I can find on the net.
But you made my day, since this is the reason I did it in the first place. I have transferred thousands and will probably transfer thousands more. I love it.

RE: Lillie Stricker 71329623
Thank you too. You know I do what I do so that a loved one can come along and take over.
Most of my memorials are not my relation. Just saying, if ever you want to take over management of anyone, just let me know.
No fooling, just look at my transfers, over 2000. And I don't mind at all. It means family is finding them. I am thrilled.

RE: Lillie Stricker 71329623
Oh, good. Sometimes I wonder when I try to research, whether I got it right or not.
Thank you for the information.
I would like to transfer to you for the proper dates and bio.
I will remove everything except the name and you can take it from there.

Thanks for providing the complete obituary for Denver. I have added it to his memorial and removed the two previous partial obits. Sorry it has taken me so long. If you would like management of his memorial, I would be glad to transfer to you.

Were you able to see the death certificate and did this answer your questions?
