Partial listing

 

 

This cemetery is a HUGE one honoring the men and women who have fought and/or served in the military.  (Their husbands and wives or sometimes their children are allowed to be buried with them, whether or not they served.) This is a PARTIAL LISTING of people whom I either have a headstone picture (hd pic), obit (obit), an actual photo ( pic ), or a newspaper article of their life or death (art ) for those listed. I have divided my listing up into three lists so please see the other lists for the other part of the alphabet.

 

I have made an alphabetical listing before the actual transcriptions below. Beside each name I have noted if I have an obit, a headstone photo, or an actual photo for that person. If you have found my name with a note of having an obit on a previous listing I can not guarantee I still have it unless it is noted below. I still have lots of things I’ve not found and added in. But I can not guarantee anyone copies of anything I have, but I will share with you’ll what I have. So if you would like me to share with you, or you share extra data please feel free to contact me. However, please have the respect to not contact me to complain when I don’t have what you request.  I will be trying to update this listing as I have time for, and when I do I will put an “*” beside the newest data entered. (Even if the name has already been there from a listing before if I have * beside I have added data or corrected data there.) I also try and not list anyone that their death is more recent than 6 mths or so, unless I personally knew them. Out of respect for them and their family I try and wait half a year for their mourning process. So most “new” deaths will not be listed. However if you have a family member you want added I will add them in.

 

I hope this listing helps these people to always be remembered. To try and help folks to always be remembered when they have gone on before us is the main reason I do what I do. And helping folks find family or friends in the process is a good plus as well.
