Born: November 14, 1896
Died: Novemeber 17, 1918
Frank Namon Edens' headstone is not a Veteran's headstone although numerous other graves indicate military with such grave markers. This headstone appears to have been provided by the family of this young Veteran.
Take special notice of the markings at the top of the headstone--an anchor. A second interesting and as of this posting, is yet unresearched, is that this Navy veteran died in 1918-possibly a KIA or, soon after returning home from the war. In either case, a sad time for his family.
Do you notice a third fact pertaining to the date he died compared to the date of his birth?

Gypsy Rose studio is located to the left, just outside the "Sears" mall entrance.
David, owner of Gypsy Rose studio, begins the process of etching my tattoo.
To make an appointment for a new tattoo, touch up or, body piercing call David or, his staff, at Gypsy Rose 1-910-938-1200.
You can visit the studio each day during the week and weekends.
Custom tattoo art is welcomed.
Give them a call and tell them the Old Marine who writes about War of 1812 Privateers and Naval battles sent you.
Currently, my research projects consist of locating "endangered " cemeteries and caring for them In addition, I attempt to locate our "forgotten" military Veterans who were laid to rest decades ago with no one to give them their due respect and recognition.
Semper Fi !

Making money, sadly, is one of the final goals of a shop keeper.
The young lady in the photograph below, possibly from the late 1800s and from New York State, is somebody's Ancestor.
This image is a missing piece of a family's past. Someday, hopefully, she will be reunited with her family and be set on a fireplace mantel or, hung on a wall in a prominent section of a house.
I do not know the lady in this photograph. Printed on the back of the image are clues as to where she lived or, vacationed.
Thank you for stopping by and taking a look at this site. Come again, I will be posting more interesting images.
