Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born at Manistique, Michigan in my Grandma's home. Our family moved around a lot. Ended up graduating in 1964 at Gladwin, Michigan. After graduation I joined the US Navy from 1964 to 1968. Since retiring in 1989, I became a resident of Conway, Arkansas. My greatest interest would be seeing historical sites. There is a good half dozen right here in the "Natural State" of Arkansas, of battle fields and cemeteries, where their remains are laid to rest.

I got into, the first time, Genealogy back in the middle 80's. After my dad passed away in 1987, I decided to get back into this. Which I am glad I did. It is very interesting of all the history one can come across.

So now am working on my family and my wives side of family, Russell, Miller, Squires, Jenkins and Sysak.

RE: Stanley Rivers photo
You are welcome. I love seeing wildlife in cemeteries. I added this Stanley photo to my "wildlife" virtual cemetery.

You had asked about adding Arlene's photo, she does not have a DOD inscribed, has she passed? And I didn't see a memorial for her.

RE: memorial # 125541766 (Pauline)
I was able to look up the death certificate index for Pauline & John on and fill in that information for their whole dates of death. Pauline's father's first name was Alex according to that index. Hopefully sometime in 2017 her actual death certificate will be available on that site.

I am not related to the Sysak's so I don't have any other information on them. Someone else submitted Pauline's maiden name.

RE: William Vanleer
I am sorry, I have no other info in him. I did not research him. The memorial was created by Tony Turk. He asked me to take over management when he retired. Sorry I can't be of more help.

RE: Howard L Baumgratz
The memorial's were created from a listing of burials in the cemetery. I know there are some volunteer photographers near there though so you should request photo's for each of them.
