Hello, if you are a distant cousin & good luck; either way, your help is appreciated in providing information to our past, current and future kinships. Warm regards & God-Speed. |
I was born in Natchez, Ms & attribute this family tree bug to an 8th grade history teacher who assigned me a project to collect 3 generations of my family. With the help of a dear grandmother (the only grandparent I ever knew) the project was completed & a new phase of our relationship began. She joined in my pursuit of better understanding my/our past for 20 years & I fondly remember how she got excited at every new discovery of her family roots; I continue in her memory.
I retired from the Navy Submarine Force as a Master Chief Machinist Mate Weapons (Torpedoman) & did a tour as a Chief of the Boat. My wife of 25 years is a Navy Veteran, our oldest son is a Marine Corp Veteran, & our youngest son is Active duty Navy.
On my paternal side I research the Arnold & Freeman Families & the family surnames they married in Franklin/Amite/Lincoln/Pike/Adams Counties, Ms. On my maternal side I research the Verbeck/Walker/Dungan/White Families of George/Jackson Counties Ms. & Clarke/Mobile Counties Al.

|Sheila Harrison||Sgt John L. Brown 116480003 & 56653187|
Mr. Arnold, I am guessing that you are a relative of John L. Brown. I am working on his record on FamilySearch.org - his number there is K23D-TRM. I was posting information to his record and encountered these memorials. I want to get his record right on FS.org.
Am I correct in assuming that he did actually die in Germany in 1944 as a POW, and that the death date of 11 April 1945 wasn't his actual death date? I see that he was buried in France. Then perhaps you had a tombstone placed at the cemetery in Mississippi?
I'd be interested in hearing a little history about him. My interest is that he connects to the family tree of my best friend for whom I do genealogy. His relationship to John L. Brown is through the Nettles family line.
John's sister, Eva, married Earnest J. Nettles. Earnest descends from my friend, Mark's 2nd great-grandfather, William Jefferson Nettles.
Thanks for any insight you can give me to the details of Sgt. John L. Brown's death.
Sheila Anne Harrison
|Michael Elaine Salisbury||Charles Augusta Verbeck|
You're right, his SS Application uses Augusta as his middle name. I mistakenly thought it was a typo. I've always known Augusta to be a woman's name. But I'm one to talk, since my name is Michael (I'm female). By the way, my parents met in the Navy..she was a wave and he was a pilot. My brother also served in the Navy in the Persian Gulf, escorting tankers.
Well, I'm sorry that I presumed to over-ride the record, so glad you caught that.
Hi Rodney if you can you can transfer Ethel Dunn and husband laforest to me - this is my aunt/uncle they had no children
This is my grandmother, Margaret Sabin George, please transfer management to me

|Elizabeth Yates Johnson||#75959881 - Luta Newman Fisackerly|
Luta is buried beside her mother Eva Hall Newman (#75961136) and father William Sam Newman (#75961102). That data needs to go into her biographical information. I have found this family in both the 1930 and 1940 federal censuses. Luta was not born until 1935, but they list her 2 older brothers, the elder of whom died in WW2, and the next, Prentiss, who was called the nickname "Foots." Luta's parents were MUCH older than her classmates' parents.
|Elizabeth Yates Johnson||Memorial# 75959881 - Luta Newman Fisackerly|
Luta was one of my best friends when we were children. She was also my younger sister's math teacher. Might I please add some biographical notes?
|Beth Austin||RE: Memorial #82076862|
Looks Great! Much Thanks.
|Beth Austin||Memorial #82076862|
I have an obituary I would like to be added to this memorial and wondered if you would mind adding it for me. Thank you so much.
|Kate||Steven D. Hickerson ~ Infant|
Thank you for posting the information and cemetery photos of where my son is buried.
