Lt George L. Korty, Lorraine American
Thank you for your pic of the marker for young George Jr.. He was our next door neighbor in Chickasha. His family moved to Chickasha c 1940 from the St. Louis area. I believe that his father, George Sr. worked at the time as a salesman for Alice Chalmers. George enrolled in the U of OK and graduated about 11 months before his death on 5/12/44. George's father had converted his one car garage into a coop for about 30 chickens and also raised strawberries in barrel and used to sip his bourbon in the back yard. George's younger sister Pat never married. His mother hung a gold star in the front window. I visited her before I joined the Navy in Dec of 1950. George's father had passed at that time and his sister was living in Houston.
George Jr. was about 6' tall, nice looking and had great smile. Both my sister and I have fond memories of him and his family.

Gorace J. Gillespie
Dear mister Beach,

my name is Erwin de Mooij and I am the content webmaster for the 457th Bomb Group Association website.

At this moment I am working on a virtual cemetery/memorial on the website honering all 339 KIA/MIA/KIS of the group.

I saw your picture of Gorace J. Gillespie's grave marker and I was wondering if I could use it for the memorial. If you made any other photos of 457th BG members would I be able to use these too?

We would greatly appreciate it.

Best regards,

Erwin de Mooij

Thank you for putting the picture of my Great Uncle Arthur Morton Barney's marker on FindAGrave. I've put a picture of him and his wife on his page. His middle name is Morton, because that was his paternal grandmother's maiden name.

Not a problem at all ... ABMC had both of their records a little messed up when they were added.

Sgt John Montgomery
Hi Michael, You put a photo of a headstone on the wrong Sgt John Montgomery record. The record that you have it on is from Maryland with a middle initial of " E ":

The photo should be on Sgt John Montgomery from Oklahoma with a middle initial of " Q ":

It's an easy mistake for sure. :-) Can you please make the change when you can? John Q Montgomery has been added to my below noted webpage as well. :-)

Thanks My Friends,
Russ Pickett
( He is also noted on the above webpage )

RE: Elmer Tharp
Thanks so much, I respect what you're doing on military with Oklahoma origins/connections. (I hope I'm remembering that correctly.) Though I was born in southwest Missouri, some extended kin and neighbors moved to Oklahoma and it's a state I've traveled through many times "going home" to visit, and my folks had a little ole fishin' cabin near Grand Lake. Again, thank you and hope your project goes well! Vicki Peterson

Thank you for the picture of the stone for my uncles grave in Saint Avold Cemetery in France. His birth date, btw, is 10 Jun 1917. He was 5 years younger than my father, one of 12 children, with only one of them still living.

This is the student website I supervise on the 192nd Tank Battalion. (I'm a teacher.) There are also pages on the 194th Tank Battalion and 17th Ordnance. Most of the work is done on the website, at this point, so I pretty much just do updates on it.

Hi Michael.
I'm working on a book for my niece who is related to the Weatherford family from Garvin and Stephens counties in Oklahoma.

May I use your photo of Wilburn in our online public family tree at We always tag the photos: "Photo courstesy of ...".

If not, may I use it in the book I'm making for my niece?

Thank you!

Cpl Doyle D. Bertram
Cpl Doyle D. Bertram was a soldier in Company A 180th Infantry Regiment 45th Infantry Division. He was killed in Sicily on 14 July 1943 during the so-called operation Husky.

He was first buried in the 180th Regimental cemetery # 2 on 17 July 1943. After two weeks his remains were exhumed and reburied in the temporary American cemetery GELA on Sicily in grave F-64-767 date of burial was 7 August 1943.

After the war his remains were exhumed and buried in the Sicily Rome Cemetery in Nettuno, Italy.

I am writing a book about this GELA cemetery, where over 1,200 men and women were buried, who were killed in Sicily in July-August 1943.

Can I have your permission to use the picture you placed on the website, of course you will be credited and notified when the book is finished.
If you have more pictures, documentation, hope you are willing to share

thank you
