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

Hello Loren, After claiming the photo request, I had to look into who Robert was. Robert married Corporal Dorothy Bella Hopkins, who was from Wales, in Halton, England July 8, 1944. Robert passes 5 months later. They had a son, Glen R J Young born in 1945 in Pontypridd, Glamorganshire, Wales . Dorothy remarried in 1949, I think to Wilfred Farrell, and became Dorothy Farrell. Dorothy passed in Merthyr Tydfil, Glamorganshire, Wales in 1980. Can't find Glen, except a Robert John G Young who passed in 1996 in Peterborough, Northamptonshire, England, born May 28, 1945. That makes him a good possibility especially if Lieut Robert J. Young's middle name is John. I will have to do some more looking. Not much Findagrave in Wales so I can't hook up the family. Very frustrating. I may write a little blurb to put on Lieut's memorial. Thanks for another good search. Kevin.

134th Infantry virtual cemetery

My grandfather Floyd Albert Roach was in the Supply company of the 134th Infantry during WWI. I don't know if your virtual cemetery is just for those in WWII, but I thought I'd mention him. His Find a Grave # is 77637034

There was another marker in the lot for Beverly Ann Nichols (June 28, 1932 - September 12, 1913)

It was a double marker. Walter Nichols (1894 - 1987) was the other person.
