I am Andy
I am the Author of www.remember-our-heroes.nl
My sons and I adopted 3 graves at the cemetery of Margraten , Netherlands and 4 at Henri Chapelle , Belgium
Graves of soldiers who died in WW2.
I take care of these graves and made a website about these men.
These men are fallen but will never be forgotten
I also started to write stories on my website about the men of the 401st BG that didn't make it back home.
I created a virtual cemetery of them.
Complete stories can be read on my page http://www.remember-our-heroes.nl/us_401stBG.htm
I also want to be a photo volunteer , so if anyone would like a picture from the American cemetery's in Margraten ( Netherlands ) or Henri Chapelle ( Belgium ) or Ardennes cemetery Belgium , don't hesitate to ask.

You're very welcome, Andy, and thank you for what you are doing to honor our heroes. I'm happy to have helped someone from the Netherlands since I am 1/4 Dutch. Also, Ancil's wife was inscribed on the other side of his headstone, Her name was Helen Elaine and I have already made the connection.

Hi Andy, I noticed someone already tried to find the gravesite you requested for Matt Kotula at All Saints Cemetery and the church had no record of him there. I did a search on Ancestry.com, and it looks like Matt is actually buried in Ft. Snelling National Cemetery in Minneapolis, MN. I'll copy and paste the info for you:
Matt M Kotula
M SGT US ARMY AIR CORPS WORLD WAR II
20 Jun 1917
16 Jan 1997
Service Start Date:
9 Jun 1941
21 Jan 1997
Ft. Snelling National Cemetery

Hope that helps!

I checked with the church office after walking All Saints Cemetery and they have no record of him being buried at All Saints in Lakeville. Sorry

Keep up your good work,

Sunnyslope has the worst property management team there and must hate Genealogy, because like the person trying to fulfill your picture request said, "Manager of cemetery states for privacy of family they refuse to allow persons to photograph the headstones even when requested on the Find A Grave site. Requires proof of family relationship be faxed to office then they will allow the family member to come and take photo. Refuses to tell me where anyone is buried specifically."
But the Corona genealogy society did a walk and had documented, photographed and made a book of results.
Here is the link to the page on that page is a link to request pictures.
Rosalind & Yale Markson
I am uploading photos to both of their memorials.
