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.

1Lt Theodore J KLeuser
Hi Rick, another Find A contributor shared this information with me and it works!


I think it is because he is not in the United States, so when you try to search
for him in the usual way..... the parameters are pre-set to United States, it doesn't bring him up......however, when you change it to "all countries"
and just type in Theodore Kleuser, he comes up.

1 Lt Theodore J. "Ted" Kleuser
Hi Rick, I am relatively new to entering memorials on

I have been entering the Kleusers of Little Rock, AR, located in Calvary Cemetery, for a family friend. I found an "In Memory" headstone for Lt. Kleuser, the same one that is on the memorial page that you created.

My problem is when I pull up a list of Kleusers, Ted's name does not appear on the list and I can not "find" him when I simply search for him.. I can only access his page through his parents. Is there a way we can get his page to show up with the other Kleusers? I created a page for him until I realized that I could access yours. I have since deleted it.

Bartlett "Bartlett Guinn" Gwinn
Thank you so much for the information you have posted here about the Gwinns. This Bartlett is my 6th ggrandfather. I am hoping that you would be willing to share with me your source for the fact that he was born in Antrim, Northern Ireland.

Thank you very much!

Odell King
Odell Leon King 10/24/1902 - 11/10/1977 # 13579955 was the first son of Edgar King and Oma Austin King. Oma Austin King died at 17 giving birth or shortly after. Odell was raised by Edgar's second wife. Oma is buried at Bluffton according to her only granddaughter. We are trying to get Find A Grave to move the memorial from Young Gravelly to Bluffton Cemetery.

RE: Oscar St.John Armes
I found Dorothea's date of birth, 15 Sep 1883, in the Iowa, Births and Christenings Index, 1800-1999:

I haven't been able to find her date of death, although it was after Oscar's death in 1952 (she's listed as his surviving spouse in his obit

I haven't come across her burial information.

Their daughter Sarah was born in 1907 and died in 1992 ( It appears that she never married.

I'm related to Dorothea -- she is my first cousin twice removed. Her mother's sister Emma is my great grandmother. I am the grandchild of her son Francis Aloysius Drew by his daughter Adelaide Anderson Drew. My maiden name is Moira Drew Masterson.

I'll let you know if I uncover any more facts about Dorothea, Oscar or Sarah.
