I know very little about my grandfather. He died before I was born. I am searching for the children he left behind. An aunt and uncle I've never had the opportunity to meet. The half brother and sister that my mother lost contact with so long ago. If anyone has any information I would appreciate it.
BAKER, FRED ALLEN

DATE OF BIRTH: 09/27/1913
DATE OF DEATH: 11/08/1966

MOUNTAIN HOME NATIONAL CEMETERY
My Grandfather was married to my gandmother Nellie Tolley and had 2 children with her
Fred Baker and Linda Baker
He had 2 children by another marriage
Phyllis and Billy Baker
He may have had more wives and children as there is rumors he was a Bigamist. I have started Geneology research and can find very little about him. If anyone knows anything or knows how I can locate more information I would appreciat it

My grandfather was KIA in WWII. He was Army Pvt. John B. McGill, and he died November 24, 1944 (the day after Thanksgiving) near Huecheln. He is buried at Henri-Chapelle. I am trying to find out as much as I can about him. We have many of his effects and military belongings, medal, flag, etc., but not as much information as we would like. I am also currently trying to have his grave adopted. I want to do all I can to keep his legacy alive.
I never met my grandfather, but I do feel a close connection to him. He left behind my grandmother, who never never remarried and passed away last spring, and 2 very young sons. My father has almost no memories of him. I am so proud of his service and the sacrifice he made, but I also mourn for a life that he never had the opportunity to live. There is a definite sadness that overcomes me when I think of him or see his picture. I hope to keep his legacy alive for many more generations.

Yeah, I had a tear come to my eye when I posted his Presidential Memorial Certificate on a new Web Site yesterday. It was a true sadness.
My grandfather, John Wallace Rich, has 6 grandchildren and was also a firstborn... He had one child, my mother.

My grandfather died in WW2. I have always felt such a deep sadness when I see his picture. He was so young. He was a man with hopes and dreams for his life. My grandfather left one daughter (my mother) and a child on the way (later to be my aunt). My mother has never stopped greiving for her father. My aunt passed away last year, one day after the anniversary of my grandfather's death.
I never knew him personally but I feel I know him through his letters and by living relatives. Even though he died a young man he left a legacy. He has 8 grandchildren, 22 great-grandchildren & 8 great-great grandchildren.

I am from the next generation.. the grandchildren of the Orphans. I know there are many like me out there who are searching for "who" there grandfathers were. My grandfather was only 25 when he was killed in a B24M Bomber that crashed in Mendocino, California in 1945. In my research I discovered that his plane was one of the first for his base (March Field, Riverside, CA) to be equiped with "Radar".
AWON has the most amazing people, they work together as a group to help all who need direction in there search, they support you, and most of all give you the comfort of knowing what you are feeling. I worried in the begining that I would not fit in because I was a grandchild, and I have both of my parents but they accepted me as a part of their family. I truly feel blessed !
So, if you are here please join !!!
