I am tired of looking up member numbers. No Member Number, No Relationship, No Transfers without these it will not be answered.

When reading "died in Martin Nursing & Restorative in Stuart, FL, Martin Memorial South or Port Salerno Bay Manor"; its physical location is Port Salerno, FL.

Cemetery surveyed: Ashley Family Cemetery (June 2007) This is on private grounds with permission only to enter, no other burial are permitted. These interments are of Florida's infamous and notorious Ashley Gang. There is a movie out about the Ashley gang called "Little Laura and Big John" (1973).

SPECIAL NOTE: Due to the high volume of transfers I will only transfer via the Find A Grave guidelines. When requesting transfers please indicate relationship and your member number. Please use the "Edit" on memorial to add information or requesting transfers.

I recently was slammed by a lady why I haven't made her requests. To everyone out there; I am not attached to my computer. When time allows I will honor all requests.

Here we go again, another harassment from a member who claims that I got into her memorial and placed "bio by and my name. The only one that can do that is the owner of the said memorial. People can be so stupid at times. I do not loan out my name at anytime.

Thank you for stopping by.

Thank you for making the edit in such a prompt manner. Your work on Find A Grave is much appreciated. I will be talking to another descendant of the Whitman family and there may be more edit requests coming. Again thank you.

Burial Unknowns
I like to find the actual burial location for memorials that are listed as Burial Unknown. I'm working now on some that you have created. Instead of bothering you to delete yours I'll go ahead to send to Edit so that all information and any photos are retained. Just thought I'd let you know in case you wonder why your numbers may change.
Regards ... YM

RE: Frank Thorngren
Hi Shirley...thanks for getting back with me.

He served with Hdqtrs Squadron, Marine Air Group 12 (MAG 12) from 12/1942 through 5/4/1944. His unit participated in air operations over Guadalcanal and other islands during that 2 years period. He was not on the aircraft but was ground personnel.

I know he earned the American Campaign Medal, Asiatic/Pacific Campaign Medal with 2 or 3 Campaign stars and the WWII Victory Medal. He may have more but I do not know for sure, such as a Marine Good Conduct Medal (if you have it I would love to purchase it to add to his display I am working on - same for any ribbons or patches you may have that he would have worn on his jacket).

That's all I know about him. His records are accessible upon written request but I am not immediate family so I cannot get them.

I do ask since you are family if you have a photograph of him in his uniform so I can add it to his uniform as well as add it to his Find-A-Grave memorial.

Thanks again Shirley and I hope to hear from you soon.

Annette (Greathouse) Bybee Souder
You made an unknown memorial for her #47018021, but she has a burial site and picture of the stone. She's listed as Annette Bybee Souder. Memorial #117834514. I was going to link her to her parents F: Chester Arthur Greathouse #45265893 and M: Alta Jane Brown #45265939. But I ran into this double entry. One (yours) has the obit and hers has the picture of the stone. Greathouse is in my family tree also. I did the research but I'll let you decide what you want to do. Hope your in agreement with that. Thank you-greg

RE: Robert Short
Thank you. Let me know if you somebody contacts you. I can very easily correct his photo memorial if the dates I used are incorrect.

Maude Bybee Scott
I checked Little Butte Cemetery and the only Bybee I see that I took in that cemetery is Maude Bybee Scott. Sorry it is being so confusing. I will check to see if Find A Grave has a phone number for these cemeteries and then I can call to see where Nettie is. I just checked, either one has a phone listed. My brother might be able to get the number. Linda

Nettie Cherry Bybee
We both have memorials created for this lady. Your memorial was first but I am sure that she is not in the Little Butte Cemetery. That is were you have her. I have her in Ucon Cemetery. I took several pictures in 2 cemeteries that day so I could be wrong but thought all of the Bybee that I took pictures of were in Ucon. I see you are relative, as I am too. Bertha Bybee was my aunt. So you might be closer than me. We could merge the 2 memorial and you can manage it if you want. But we need to have correct cemetery. I do not live in Idaho, do you? Linda
