Are you in contact with, or related to this family?
The residents of Mons, Belgium are making a monument to the American soldiers that died defending them in September 1944 (where his father was KIA) They would like to let all living relatives know of this.
Thanks in advance.

I believe that I "borrowed" that picture from an eBay auction some time back, although I am not certain. I do not own it though, I can say that much. Have you looked for his VA burial card? His personnel file?

I wanted to send a huge thank you your way for the wonderful biography you made for Milburn Moffitt's memorial. Milburn's brother Robert, who also served, is my great grandfather. There is an old family picture that was taken of my great grandfather and his whole family right before they were shipped out. In that picture, 4 of the brothers are dressed in military uniforms; Milburn, Robert, James and Arthur. I saw that you mentioned James in the bio but not Arthur. I can't find any proof that he served besides the picture, and I didn't know if you could? Also, do you know if James was shipped overseas as well? You can see the family picture on William Moffitt's memorial (64472143). If you can help me here I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks so much again!

I have transferred Joseph to your care. He is interred in the Miller Cemetery, as you know, which is where many of my family are buried.I have a deep connection with Washington County.
I am glad that you will be taking good care of him.
Also, thank you for your service to our great country!!!!

Dear Mr. Jackson
Thanks so much for taking a picture of the Mason grave marker.
I spent 30 years in the Air Force but am now working for a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces. In March, I am giving a presentation on Charles B. Mason and his court-martial.
After serving as a volunteer during the Civil War and being a POW for almost a year, Mason was discharged. Within the year, he reenlisted, in the regular Army but under the name John A. Mason. In 1881, while guarding the prison where Charles J. Guiteau, President Garfield's assassin, was being held, he fired a shot through a window in an effort to kill Guiteau. Mason was convicted by court-martial but after less than 2 years, President Arthur pardoned him. In his dealings with the pension authorities and veterans health system he returned to the name of Charles B.
Thanks, again for your help. Jim Young
