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.]

|BobBoston||RE: MOH George R. Willis - Oak Grove Cemetery|
Karl, I want to thank you for your efforts. My Volunteer Phototaker energy takes me to Oak Grove quite often. Yesterday I was informed by workers they they had just installed the MOH marker. I was excited to see it. I had no idea it could be done. Thank you for your persistence. Please keep up the great work.
|Bob Velke||RE: Kearny Cross recipients|
Hi Karl. Most, but not all of the recipients of the cross were listed in GO #48. Yes, I have the list of officers, thanks. So far, I have FindAGrave records for 166 of the recipients of the Medal and 207 of the Cross. Perhaps I should create a virtual cemetery. Thanks for your help.
|Bob Velke||Kearny Cross recipients|
I noticed your virtual cemetery for Kearny Cross recipients. Can you tell me, please, about your interest in this medal? I am writing a book on the subject and would be interested in any information that you might have. In particular, what is your source for the fact that John C. Forbes, Co. H, 57th PA received the medal? Thanks very much.
