Thank you so much... I wasn't sure where my grandfather was buried.

Edwin Hefner
After contacting the other member about Edwin being moved to Colorado to be buried with his wife Alice, he transferred the memorial to me. To make things less confusing for everyone else, I deleted the memorial. He isn't buried there and there was never a headstone so it made sense to me. You can update your bio on him. Thanks! Kris

Thank you so much for updating Uncle Bill's info, and especially for adding his memorial to begin with. We now know his final resting spot. Although I never met him, Mom and my Aunts speak very highly of what a wonderful man Uncle Bill was. Again thank you! You are greatly appreciated Richard!

RE: Edward Valento at San Fran Nat'l Cem
Thanks Richard,
This 1920 incident at Santa Rosa Rural Cemetery was the beginning of the end of the Howard Street Gang and the last of California's vigilante neck tie parties. California newspaper articles at the time had various accounts of what happened, but for a fairly accurate version that includes most of the victims, accomplices and Santa Rosa crime scenes, see the Full Text Transcript of the Sonoma County Coroner's Inquisition by Coroner Frank H. Phillips, 12- 27- 1920.
Most other members of the gang; Edward "K.O." Kruvosky, Edmund "Spud" Murphy, Thomas Brady, James M. Carey, Allan Macdonald, to name a few with the longer rap sheets, were tried and convicted soon afterward and appear on the rolls of inmates at San Quentin and Folsom prisons.
Charlie Valento's roots can be traced to a hard working San Francisco immigrant family, many of whom were US military vets. He had his chance in life.

RE: Lola Cluxton
Thanks so much for correcting the spelling. My ancestors have chosen to spell it every which way under the sun, and I've read that boys did this to distinguish "lines" in the family. My great grandfather simplified our Connelly to Conley. Makes it impossible to track relatives sometimes. Thanks again. Have a sunny day.

USCT Cemetery Mgr.
RE: Dade, Early, Kato, McKoy, and Caples

Attention: Richard Juhl

Richard...thank you for your communication regarding the five (5) Buffalo Soldiers and/or U. S. Colored Troops, as to whether or not their rank ought to be a prefix to their name(s).

My thoughts in that regard are as follows:

1. In regard to Memorials where their rank has been recorded on their headstone...that recordation very strongly implies that, most probably, the deceased's nearest and dearest relative(s) inscribed their rank there, and, therefore, would approve of having the rank as a prefix to the deceased's name.

2. In as much as the Memorials of the five (5) Troopers displayed the following information:

A. Seaman George Caples - Janitor
B. Sgt. William McKoy - Laborer for the railroad (Army Non-Com)
C. Corp. Richard Early - Pullman Porter (Army Non-Com)
D. Pvt. Phillip Kato - ?
E. Pvt. Henry Dade - Cook

Therefore, displaying the rank for the first three (3) above would, most probably, be an upscale act, and, perhaps, displaying the rank for the last two (2) above might, also, be an upscale act.

3. Because FindAGrave has a gazillion Memorials therein (which were not created by a relative of the deceased person), I believe and contend that, in the case of Troops who go so far back in history as the USCT, most of the African-American relatives do not even know that a Memorial now exists, and, also, a substantial number of said relatives do not even know that they had a relative who served in the Civil War
(I was in my 50s before it became known to me that I had a gggrandfather who was a Union Army combat veteran and pensioner).

Richard...those are my thoughts in regard to rank as a prefix. Once again, thank you for contacting me, and, keep up your outstanding work.

I am,

Sincerely yours,

Michael James Morton - USCT Cemetery Mgr. (#49120946)

Do you have any information regarding Alma's marriage date to Emil Peterson? I'm trying to determine if this was the same Emil Peterson who was previously married to a different woman.

Donald Lee Fisher
Good afternoon,

Sorry to trouble you again, but I found the application for a flat bronze grave marker for the son of Royal Franklin Fisher and his wife, Wynona T. (Pellman) Fisher stated it was for burial at Crown Hill Cemetery in Denver, CO. I do not find a listing in Crown Hill for him and have not found another cemetery which lists Donald Lee Fisher. According to the grave application, his wife applied for a birth date of 21 Jul 1907 and this was corrected to 21 Jun 1907 by the processor for the marker. date of death is listed as 12 Feb 1962. I also do not find a burial for Wynona, so i am wondering if they were cremated and she simply had his plaque sent to the cemetery for display purposes (if so, where would this be, like side of a building, memorial walk, etc.) or if there are interments not listed for this cemetery?

Thank you for any information,
Steven Snider (#47228634)

Thank you for your kind words. I am happy to have helped.

For additional information on George Woodburne McGregor, he also graduated from West Point, in 1927. Like his brother, he dropped Shillock immediately after graduation.

Tony Hervatin
Dear Richard,

I am researching my paternal grandfather's WWI army unit, Company B, 355th Infantry, 89th Division. According to the History and Roster of the 355th Infantry, Tony Hervatin was a member of this unit. His gravestone confirms this.

I'm not exactly sure where I'm going with my project, but want to eventually publish something. Would it be permissible to use your photograph of the grave of Tony Hervatin (Find A Grave Memorial# 124122753) should I eventually publish something?

Thank you,

With warm regards,

Bryan Anderson
