|Kathy Leach||RE: Leo Dawson|
A transfer would be great - I'll submit an edit request. The info I send was from the Find A Grave volunteer that talked to the Fairmont Cemetery office - I guess that is the info they had - City of Woodlawn Santa Monica Cemetery. Thanks for finding the cemetery.
HAPPY SATURDAY !!!
I just wrote to you about Mt Hope cemetery, Aston, PA. Then I was looking at your virtual work. Excellent, by the way.
Here is another grunt for you. I don't know how many we have here, but if you're interested, I'll forward you what we have.
By the way. Mt Hope is older than our country. We have Revolutionary War Veterans here.

HAPPY FRIDAY !!!
We are three people searching through the cemetery records, etc for Veterans. Recently, we expanded into photographing all of the stones.
Because of the immense work involved, we are looking for volunteers who could help out in many ways. Researching, typing, photographing and eventually physically locating the interred VeTs. If you or any like minded people out there would like to help, please contact me.
By the way. In 2010, there were 450 identified Vets. Today, +/- 850. On paper, 1400 ! in a 26 acre cemetery.
|William Meehan||RE: Thomas Christy grave plot number?|
Best I can see in the Cemetery book was G - 2 - 35
The G was ?able but not range and Lot. I'll have to check when time allows a personal visit.

Please check photos left on Patrick Fitzgerald (120726069), especially the inscription below the dates - it seems to have a lot in common with your biography of him. But birth year in photo is 1836. I found the death record that corresponds to the dates that are on your memorial (120726069), but it is possible that the Patrick in your memorial may not have been indexed or may have died outside of Massachusetts. Thank you for your time. Zoe

I noticed his plot location was incorrect. The correct location is Section F Range 7 Row 6.

Hi. You posted three illustrations to the bio on LtCol Reynolds. Would you have high resolution versions of these illustrations that you could possibly send me?
|Sharon Lavash Hawkins||RE: Muriel V. Sibell|
Hi, I have no idea how I've given you that information when I didn't create the memorials - I don't know who these people are. Are you sure that you got that information from me? :)
|Jim McDonald||Isaac B. Sapp|
Thank you for letting me know about Isaac B. Sapp.
|Mark||RE: Sgt Edward Foote Hinkle|
Karl, Thanks for adding the bio. I am continuing to make further similar Edit Requests for all Lafayette Flying Corps servicemen that I can find on Find-a-Grave. "The Lafayette Flying Corps" by Dennis Gordon shows 269 men on the roster which includes those who were killed or who washed-out of training.
Your virtual cemeteries are outstanding! I like how specific they are for WW1 aviators (Aces, Lafayette Escadrille, Lafayette Flying Corps) compared to my virtual cemetery which is all WW1 Aviators from all nations. However, I have a specific virtual cemetery that you don't: The Kosciuszko Squadron. It is made up of American WW1 aviators who volunteered to defend Poland from the attacking Bolsheviks while the rest of the word retreated from the long struggle off WW1. Highly successful, Poland earned 20 years of freedom and prosperity until the Nazi Blitzkrieg in 1939. The WW1 Kosciuszko Squadron was founded by Americans Merian Cooper and Cedric Fauntleroy and named after the American Revolutionary War hero from Poland, Thaddeus Kosciuszko (pronounced, Kos-CHOO-shko). The naming effort was akin to the WW1 Americans naming their squadron after Lafayette. [There was also a WW2 Kosciuszko squadron made up of Polish pilots who congregated and re-formed in England.]
