Thank you again to all who continue to visit my angel momma and other memorials. Your thoughtfulness is always appreciated.

If you have time, this Memorial Day, please visit my step son's Fallen Battalion Brothers of the 3/25th Marines who lost their lives in Iraq in 2005. (Virtual Cemetery 10)

May each of you be abundantly blessed!! XOXO


~~ Dear Ancestor ~~
Your tombstone stands among the rest, neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out on polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care; it is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist; You died, and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you: in flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled one hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.

Thomas Aquinas Ashton 33617622
Hi, I am doing research for a book and I found the names of his mother and father if you want to add them to his memorial,
His Mother was Alice E. Ashton she was born 1918 and passed away in 2004. His father was George F. Ashton he was born 1916 and passed away in 1978. He also had. His father was chairman of the history department at San Bernardino Valley College and If I can remember from my research his mother was a teacher, Thomas had six brothers and sisters, and I believe his mother still lived in the same house that they lived in when Thomas was killed.

A&M College Photo of E.D. Fitzwilliam
I would like to ask for more information about Fitzwilliam at A&M. He is listed in the June 1916 as student in the two-year Agriculture program so we believe he started that fall and would have completed the program in 1918 right before he enlisted. We simply cannot find him in any yearbook so a better quality photograph would be great. I am researching all the Aggies and local men (Brazos County) who served in the USMC for the WW1 Centennial. Any assistance would be appreciated.

Hi Kathy,

The information on this memorial needs to be updated. John McLean's wife Margaret's maiden name was Margaret McPherson.

Hey Kathy, hope you are well.

I was researching some of the "Curries" in my family tree.

I saw where you had added Malcolm A. Clark in
Bethel Presbyterian Church Cemetery Find A Grave #141238248.

Malcolm Archie Clark marries twice 1) Mary McNeill on Jan. 28, 1884 in Robeson Co., N.C. (the one you have named on his memorial). 2) Mary Currie on April 5, 1894 in Robeson Co. N.C.

I found an obituary for Malcolm Clark, says he was about 81 yrs old when he died. I believe he was born about 1862. His mother could have been pregnant with him when his father died.

Malcolms' birth is listed as 1862 in both of his marriages.

I have added Mary Currie Clark memorial to this cemetery and linked her to her husband Malcolm A. Clark.

The children born after 1892 that died are Malcolm and Mary Currie Clarks.

Have a blessed day,

Thank you for posting John Poe and Grace Jenkins on Find A Grave. I only have family lore as sources for James W. Cather. Have you had any success with research verifying James W. Cather and his wife as the parents of James Cather born 1807 Pennsylvania? Thank you,

James Price

Please look at the page for Alexander Muszynski number 139176445. I posted a photo of his flight crew that may or may not include Your cousin. 2nd Lt Muszynski was the co-pilot of the "Naughty but "Nice B24 that was piloted by Price . I don't have much info on Al Muszynski after his March 31 1944 letter home from an airfield in Brazil. Since he died on April 17 I don't think he got 21 missions under his belt. Maybe he was teamed up with an experienced crew and it was his first.

His sister is still alive and only knew of the burial in Jefferson Barracks when I showed he the photos and crash report in 2014.

If you can direct me to any sources about the crash and crew please do so Thank you.
