Picture of headstone and spousal info
Mr. Martin,

I found out that my mother's headstone (she is Lucy on the headstone for Michael Martin) was posted on the internet and, frankly, am appalled. It is also illegal because I am the heir to the gravesite and neither St. Charles nor myself authorized the picture (the cemetery has rules against unauthorized pictures, particularly, as it is private property).

Like many people, I view taking pictures of a headstone as being disrespectful and an invasion of privacy. I am asking that the headstone picture be removed.

I was also appalled that a woman was listed as his spouse. I don't know his history but perhaps this is a woman he divorced (maybe your mother?). I think he may have left his family. Absolutely inappropriate to list his former wife. I will ask that information be removed.

In any event, he and my mother loved each other very much so I am fine with Mr. Martin's picture staying. Please do remove the spousal reference-it is incorrect and disrespectful to the marriage between he and my mother.

Ivan Broz
Hi Robert,
I am the Historian for the 505th BG of which Ivan Broz served in the 482nd Squadron on Tinian in the Mariana Islands in 1945.

My only suggestion is that he was a member of the Army Air Force vs Army.

Thank you very much. Your entry is very helpful for our records.

RE: Sophia (Trojanowski, Martin) Mease
You're welcome! So if Sophie is your aunt, then my Grandfather (Richard Martin - Sophie's oldest son) is your cousin. Right? That's cool. Do you remember much about Sophie?

RE:Kenneth Jones
Hi Bob,
I hope you don't mind, I transcribed the obit that you posted for Kenneth Jones at Clarion Cemetery, Clarion Co, PA. I gave you credit for it. It always looks nicer under the bio section. If you want, you can delete the photo copy.
