Bio and Links
Bio Photo Retired military. Genealogy is a passion but I slow down when football season arrives. Willing to help others as much as possible. I focus on my Stewart roots (West Virginia and Pennsylvania) and the Marshall family on my mother's side (Virginia).

I photo document cemeteries as a hobby and have completed ones in my area of James City County, Charles City County, Williamsburg and York County, VA. Have also worked on cemeteries in Surry, Sussex, Isle of Wight and Southampton Counties, VA and Hampton National Cemetery in Hampton, VA and Richmond National Cemetery in Richmond, VA. Recently completed Mount Calvary Cemetery in Richmond and am now working on Riverview Cemetery in Richmond with a friend.

I have also photo documented several cemeteries in the Hilton Head Island, SC, Kitty Hawk (Dare County), NC, Leavenworth, KS and Bellevue (Douglas and Sarpy counties), Nebraska areas while on vacation.

If I have added a memorial for one of your family members just let me know your Find A Grave member number and I will transfer it to you.

James Francis Goble - #99241850
I'm pretty certain this was the first husband of Katherine Coleman Goble Johnson, a notable groundbreaking African-American physicist and mathematician who worked for NASA's aeronautics space program back during the early 1950's through the late 1960's/early '70's. Together they had three daughters, Constance, Joylette and Katherine. James Goble died of an inoperable brain tumor. Katherine is still living and will be 99 years young later this month. :)

Charles Wing Civil War 3097233
Thank you so very much for the permission to use the photo of Charles Wings stone. Yes, indeed, it is a free site. If you are interested in the Civil War, I'm sure you would enjoy this site There are 50 thousand pages plus on Vermont's contributions to the war.The webmaster,Tom Ledoux, is a retired Naval Officer, and this is a passion he has worked on since before his retirement.Myself, along with several others, research and contribute to the site. It's fun, rewarding and educational.
Again, Thanks and God Bless America--and the Grand Army of the Republic!

Charles Wing Civil War 3097233
May I use the photo of the grave marker that you have contributed to the Find A Grave for Charles Wing, to post on the Vermont Civil War site? ( www.vermontcivilwar.org) I have been searching for him for a couple of years, and am so excited to locate his beath & burial! He is a Native Son of Vermont, and served in the 11th Vermont.during the Civil War.
Thank you for your consideration.

Civil War Gravestones
Thank you so much for documenting Civil War gravestones that are sometimes difficult to read. The photo of my second great grandfather's gravestone, that of John Friedrich Gustavus Trainer, is beautiful...and so legible! It confirmed records that I found of his burial. You are providing a wonderful service! Thank you for all you do!

Thank you for sending information on him. We appreciated it and will incorporate it into his memorial. We beiieve it is for his father by the same name. The son was a best selling author in the 1950s. He wrote the book "Little Squire Jim." Hugs.

Thank you!

I was so surprised to check the hint in Ancestry and find your photo of my father's grave! And you placed one of the cemetery, too. It brought tears to my eyes--thank you so very, very much! I live far away and can't get there very often. Last time I couldn't find my Mom and Dad's graves for a while and ended up stumbling around the cemetery sobbing. I finally found them. Now I know I can see my father's grave any time, thanks to you. You
are giving families a precious gift. Bless you.

RE: Transfers
It appears that I contacted the perfect person, Colonel (retired). Thank you so very much for pointing me in the right direction. I'm hoping that a portrait and minimal military particulars will fall under the Freedom of Information Act. I'm looking forward to see long Crystal in her full uniform. Thanks again!

RE: Transfers
Hi Ron.

Might I impose on your military expertise? I have a second cousin, Crystal May Stafford, who achieved rank of Colonel in the Army Nurse Corp in Vietnam. Her memorial has just been transferred to me. To enhance the memorial I would like to obtain a copy of her portrait in full uniform to pay tribute to her military accomplishments. I don't seem to be having any luck finding where I could order a copy of the photograph. Would you happen to know that information?

My best,

Lynne

Hello, Ron...yes, it certainly could be an error since family cemeteries can be a little confusing. There is no death certificate on Ancestry...frankly I can't recall now how I chose the cemetery designation. I will be happy to relocate him next to his family members and since you are a descendant would you like a transfer of this memorial into your keeping?
