Happy to be of service.

You are welcome!
Came across this information on Ancestry.com, and will get Doris Tolley to post it on Mordecai's Memorial (This comes from a Public Tree from RonKopp55, and was originally shared on 12 Aug 2012) - Maybe you have already seen this?:
From oral history taken by Jane Theobald with Emily Sinclair Croxall (her grandmother and a daughter of Mordecai and Susan Sinclair) on June 26, 1959:
"Benjamin Albright and Susan McClanahan (her grandparents) had a livery stable and moved to St. Louis just before the Civil War. He bought mules for the army. He caught cold and died of pneumonia in 1862.
Benjamin Albright had slaves in (prob.) St. Louis. When the slaves were freed, they wouldn't leave. They had one slave, "Sukie", who took care of the children.
Aunt Jo's husband, always called Walker, shipped goods in St. Louis and had a business on the docks. While down there he met Mordicai Sinclair and invited him home to dinner. Walker's sister-in-law, Susan Albright, was there on a visit and they met.
Mordicai was clerk of the wharf boats for 25 years and stayed in St. Louis during the boat season (summer), then took his family to Hanover for the winter months.
Mordicai and Uncle Will were mowing hay with a sythe and Mord cut himself across the shin bone and it never healed - became TB of the bone. He then couldn't work and son Charlie had a job in the roundhouse in Wellsville so the family moved there and lived right across the street from the roundhouse.
Mama (Susan Sinclair) kept four railroad men as boarders and Mordicai died there about 1884. The family stayed there about 2 more years. She sold corsets and cookbooks door to door.
They moved to East Liverpool and I (Emily), about 16 years old, and Nellie worked in the pottery (ed. note - as did Fred and George). I took stilt marks off the plates and made $2.50 a week. Got a $5.00 gift for good work."

We visited Grove Hill Cemetery yesterday to fulfill some photo requests, and got the photo of the Sinclair(s) that you requested.
Susan and Mordecai were on the back side of the stone of his parents, Jesse Sinclair and Emily (Milner) Sinclair, so that is why they may have been missed when folks photographed the graves.
The stone is in the old section of the cemetery in row 15 and there are many other Sinclairs in the overall cemetery, but the closest in proximity to Mordecai, Susan, and his parents are the graves of Leroy W Sinclair and his wife Sarah F (Ehrhart) Sinclair, which are also listed on the Grove Hill FindAGrave site. Other Sinclairs that are near are an entire family buried around a large brown stone inscribed "Sinclair", which is the family of Charles and Hattie Sinclair.
There is no stone that we could find of Charles E. Sinclair, the son of Mordecai and Susan. A suggestion would be to further research the Charles E. Sinclair that is buried in Union Cemetery in Steubenville, Ohio, who was born in 1863 and died in 1937??
We have added photos of Susan and Mordecai and also asked the Memorial owners to 'link' up the family members, so the listing for Susan should be up-to-date in the next few days.
Hope all this helps in your research....

Good afternoon Mary,
This is a brief history of 14th Infantry Regiment during WWII. Ian Wilson served with 14th Infantry Regiment in Company C. His service period was 07/13/1942 - 10/12/1945
14th Infantry Regiment is active since 1861. Nickname - Golden Dragons. Motto - Right of The Line.
In June 1943 the Golden Dragons were ordered to Camp Carson, Colorado where the Regiment was assigned to the 71st Light Division on 10 July 1943. The 14th along with the rest of the 71st Division underwent unit combat training at Camp Carson then at Camp Roberts, California and at Fort Benning Georgia. At Fort Benning the 71st was reorganized and redesignated as the 71st Infantry Division. On 25 January the Golden Dragons sailed from New York, with the rest of the 71st Division arriving in Le Havre on 7 February 1945. The 14th then moved some 350 miles (560 km) across France. At Ratzwiller the 71st Division relieved the 100th Division. On 21 March 1945 the 14th took part in the 71st Division's breaching the Siegfried Line and the capture of Pirmasens. On 30 March 1945 the 71st crossed the Rhine River and went into reserve near Frankfurt.The 14th Infantry then participated along with its sister regiment the 5th Infantry in the elimination of bypassed German forces north of Hanau, Germany on 2 April 1945. On 13 April 1945 the Golden Dragons cut the main Berlin to Munich autobahn. On 14–16 April 1945 the 14th participated in its heaviest combat as the 71st Division seized the town of Bayreuth, Germany. Bypassing German strongpoints the 71st Division sped south with the 14th Infantry crossing the Danube River and participating in the seizure of the city of Regensburg on 27 April 1945. From there the 14th made an assault crossing of the Isar River under fire and entered Austria on 2 May 1945. The 71st Division linked up with advancing Soviet Army units east of Linz, Austria on 8 May 1945 and hostilities ceased on 9 May 1945.

Glad to be at your assistance Mary. I will send you information about Ian Wilson's military service.
Best regards to you and your friend Ian's daughter.
Happy to help. We were in the area and was a good way to spend an afternoon.It looks like there is an "MD" after his name. I found his daughter Mary, and posted a photo, but none others. The stones are very dilapidated and vandalized.

|Janet Muff||RE: Mayo Grave Photo|
You are welcome.. I was hoping you might say something so I could ask you if you happen to know which Henry Whitford was married to Lovira and which one was married to Marietta? I have photos to add to their memorials but the stones don't have the middle initial and the memorials don't list dates.. I would like to make sure I put them on the correct page.
