Bio and Links
Bio Photo Retired law enforcement and military (Marines and Air Force Reserves) currently in a nursing career.
I collect WWI, WWII and Vietnam era uniforms, medals, etc as my main hobby but also dabble in autographs and of course work on the family tree from time to time. Most of the memorials I have created are of family or very good friends. But, I also build memorials or write bio's for veterans who do not have a memorial or bio already built - but should have. I live in Tulsa, OK.

RE: Frank Thorngren
Hi Rick, Thank you for getting back with me. I do not have any photo, medals or awards to offer you. My aunt is unable to help me because of her disease.

I would like to know where I can obtain more information about Frank. Can you please provide me with how I can obtain it.

Hi Rick,

My aunt told me that he was accindently shot while he was hunting.

Do you have any military information you would like to share with me about him? My aunt has late stage Alzheimer's and is unable to remember.

I've finally got my family tree maker working! I do have 4 photos of Mary Christine Parker-Blaylock. What email can I send them to?

Have you any info on Lafayette's father Thomas. I am seeing connections to a Thomas J (Jackson) as his father, but without any proof or documentation that can be verified.

Thank you - Vivian Knight #64351164

Rick, thank you for the heads up to your virtual cemeteries. We share some things in common. I am a collector and in the nursing field, too. David

I am glad it was of use! Thank you for the important work that you are doing. I hope to become a productive member of find-a-grave in a couple of years upon my retirement.

Thanks for the feedback.

I may have access to more photo's except my Ancestry tree crashed with the 3.1 MAC update.

I'll get back to you when I get that up and running
