RE: WW II soldiers
Thank you. Glad I could help.

Thank you!

for honoring so many fallen in action.
My great uncle was killed in action in
WWII and still lies in a foreign grave.

You noted a fella who made it home.
He needed a death date, I've sent an
EDIT TAB for him. I also attached a
photo of his headstone paper.

If you wish the headstone pic to be
removed, pick any memorial and let
me know (EDIT TAB msg).

Again, thank you.

Rich, thank you for adding the information to Manuel's bio. He's one of 2,199 servicemen buried first in Fosse#1 in Liege, Belgium and then transferred to the US. I've taken the interest in this cemetery and it's former occupants because my uncle was one and because Max Noel is writing a book about it. Thank you again, Cheryl

RE: PFC Hillard Pleet
Thank you. That is more than I expected. Is it possible to add his middle initial "S" to his page. It is on his gravestone. I almost missed him because I was looking for Hillard S. Pleet.

Rich - My father served with Pfc. Hillard S. Pleet in G company, 35th Regiment, in WWII. I have written a book about G Company and the Luzon Campaign in which Pfc. Pleet is mentioned. Would you happen to have any contact information for Pfc. Pleet's family? I would like to send his family a copy of the book. I know this is a long shot.

RE: harry howard hurwitz
Rich do you know how to look up epidemics in hospital rooms.I have a aunt who died in 1907 age 11 at chicago's Michael reese hospital named bella Brownstein and according to the elder sister she died along with 10 other children of the same illness in that hospital.The death cert says heart respiratory failure upon anethesia from a operation.Also I have a great grand uncle's child Julius Brownstein age 19 that died at the bottom of a Chicago downtown office building falling 5 stories down an elevator shaft.How does one get newspaper articles on these family tragedies???

Hi, I had taken a few pictures while I was in the cemetery and was just checking to see if by chance they happened to have a request.

You mention photo use for non-commercial purposes. If I post to a private tree at and credit you for the photo, is that acceptable or not?

I believe the photos for Ahka and Ctebah Savich are switched according to gender because of notation on their tombstones about Father & Mother.. Could you take a look and change if you agree? Great pictures!
Thanks, Sandi
