Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired businessman who enjoys genealogy as a hobby. I find that genealogy and "Find a grave" go hand in hand and its easy to do both at the same time and both are very rewarding.In adding Memorials for those in my family I have added memorials for many non-relatives in hope that it will help others as others have helped me. If I've submitted a relative of yours and you would like it transferred to you, just ask. I live in the Omaha metro area and thats where most of my photos were taken.Researching Bender, Ausdemore,Hittner, German,Ternus, Bockholt, Hatzenbuehler, Kramer, Wickelman and many others. Most of My family came from Germany in the Mid 1800s and settled in the North Eastern Nebraska German farming comunities and spread from there.In my research if I run across a grave of someone in the Military that is Killed in Action they get special attention and i try to find out as much as i can about them and put it on the Memorial. We owe it to these Heros and they should not be forgotten.I authorize anyone to use my photos for any reason."Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you." ~~~Princess Diana

Lewis Jackson Photo
Loren, I wanted to thank you publicly for your thorough and prompt help in figuring out that Lewis's photo was the wrong Lewis. I have a photo from his obit on it's way that I'll get posted. Thanks again for your special attention to our veterans.

Hi Loren,

I just took those photos about 2 o'clock. I'm glad I could help.

Celeste and Aldebert Barber
Pretty straight forward locating the markers. There was an urn marker for Lt. Charles E. Barber between Celeste and Aldebert.

Bessie Brant
Hello! I am about to fulfill your photo request but unfortunately, it is a photo of the area, only. Her grave is unmarked. I believe (from the number plugs on the ground) that her grave is located where the flowers are.

I am sorry this was not a more positive outcome. I am always disappointed when the grave is unmarked, and I had several like that today.

Best regards,

If you can call Holy Cross Cemetery @ (310)836-5500 for the grave location I will get the photo for you! Do not email because they will not reply. I would call for you but since I am probably the only regular active volunteer there I have made many many calls to them for locations and they are very annoyed with me. Please send it to my member page as I go 2 times a week. James

RE: Griffin E Eno
Hi Loren,
You are welcome for the photos. I did not take them, but a friend who lives in Tunisia took them for me so I could upload them, and others.
Glad to help,
Dan Phelan

RE: looking for photos
Wow Loren, I couldn't find much of anything on these guys, and that is unusual. Only thing I saw was a reference to Stanley Kula which said he enlisted from Omaha, that is it. Thanks. Kevin.

Gust Sandin
Hi. Trying figure what do with edit for Gust Sandin. I had purposely left the Aurora memorial unlinked and just referred to his military memorial which has family links. I was trying avoid Mrs Sand in having two husbands named Gust.
