RE: Banks and Dawson
That would be pretty neat. It is pretty sad they have no marker, even a temporary one. I am on poverty level income from Soc Sec so that is something I would not be able to help with myself. At least they got buried in a pretty good place and it is understandable they had no markers since the families probably lost everything in the flood and it may have been a burden on them just to buy them a grave. The cemetery may have given them a deal on that too though since it was under such tragic circumstances.

Long FindAGrave text
I did read your mom's bio. Well done, sir! Thought I'd drop a hint I've used. Add a line of ~~~~~~~~ to the end of the text. You can force the display area to widen so all the text isn't a very long column. See my dad's Memorial at 60189638.
Your colleague, Chuck Black

William Lewis Drumheller, Jr
I sent you an edit request for the memorial you created for William Lewis Drumheller, Jr. #45580559. The photo attached to this is actually for his father #24537133. Since you did not create both memorials I felt it easier to just edit the names and link the correct wives. Per the cemetery records, that are online @ ... you can verify the information there. I have submitted edit requests to the other contributor as well. I only found this information as I was creating a memorial for Kirk Drumheller, your William's brother.

Jack Tier
Where did you locate the information and photo for Jack Tier in Shawnee Center Cemetery.

Do you have a family connection? He was my mother's first husband. I knew date of death because we found his foot locker and flight book (the take off for his last flight had been recorded in it) when I cleaned out my parent's house.

Hi there,
I am Walter (Buddy's) grand daughter. Just wondering if you have any more information on him or his siblings, Helen and Ethel.
It was great to see the picture of him. I had seen the one with his squadron, but never the one of him in high school.
My father is Walter Raymond Denton, Jr.
Thank you for this contribution. I'm curious to know how/if you are related.
Thank you,
Amy Dampt

George L Strasser
I noticed that you posted a picture of a George L Strasser who was killed in WWII. I am wondering where you got that picture and if you have a family connection. I am looking for a George L Strasser, son of George E Strasser and Ruby Meriam Kimball Strasser. Might this be the person I am looking for?

Thank you for any information you can provide to me.

Do you know if you photographed the marker at Riverview Abbey Mausoleum and Crematory or River View Cemetery ? Thanks for all you do.

Find A Grave Memorial# 74699515 Wallace Cosper

Can I ask where you sourced the pictures from of Wallace, please?

Wallace was part of my cousin, Raymond Heron's crew. They both died together.

RE: Kenneth Goldman
Thank you James for the Franklin High School graduation photo addition to Ken Goldman's memorial page. He sure resembles my mother's side of the family.
Ken's aunt, my grandmother(Florence Goldman), had the Oregonian newspaper article photo tucked away in her family album but no other photos of him that were identified. He was my 2nd cousin and buried at Calvary Cemetery the year I was born.
Thanks again,
Steve Berg

Catherine Elizabeth Day Germain
Find A Grave Memorial# 59107942
I am writing because I want to bring attention to the errors on Catherine's findagrave information. Her birth date is actually 7 January 1871 in Newcastle, Northumberland, New Brunswick, Canada. She was baptized in the St.James & St. John United Church of Newcastle and their records of her birth is recorded there. I have other sources to verify her birth. Her father was William Day, not John Day. John was her brother and my great-grandfather. Her mother was Catherine Sturgeon. I have copies of these records. Catherine E. Day Underwood was married to Joseph Anthony Germain on 20 Dec. 1919, in Arizona, and he died 20 December 1929 and is, also, buried in the Greenwood Cemetery but I have been unable to find this on It is recorded on his death certificate. He was buried their on 23 December 1929. I would be very happy to have you transfer these site to me if you would like to. Thank you for all of your work! It means so very much to so many, many people!! I love family history and treasure all of this information! Looking forward to hearing from you!

George E. Richards LT, USA Korea
Hi James,
I was wondering, you added some info on 1st Lt George E. Richards, KIA Korea 1953, and was wondering if you would possibly know if any of his family is still in the area or how I would go about finding them? I have a personal question to ask them about him about where he was stationed, if he was on Okinawa prior to going into Korea. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

Thanks for the reply. Please do NOT remove the photo. Copying it and posting it was fine. I was interested in seeing if you were related in some way.

You posted a photo for Mauritz F Johnson who died on WW II D-day in France (Army Air Corp). It looks like the photo I added on I was wondering if you have any relationship to Mauritz Johnson. He is my uncle.

Do you have any information on Arnold A. Wildt? I see you added his picture. I am looking for a good picture and information. I am doing research into the plane crash he was in, in order to get a proper memorial marker at the crash site. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
