Memorial Day: Remembering Uncle Arthur

This is a picture of my Great Uncle George's Uncle Arthur. When Uncle George got old (95) he started giving me photos. Previously he had given me some to scan and return. He died right before his 96th birthday, and when I put together some commorative pages including his own service in WWII, I put together this page about Great Great Uncle Arthur who served and died in "The Great War".

No one who knew Uncle Arthur is living today. I only know he was one of my Great Grandfather's brothers. "Enlisted May 24, 1918 Died September 21, 1918" was on the back of the photo.
Uncle Arthur

Thank you Uncle Arthur, and the other "boys" from my hometown in the big photo, and to our servicemen and women everywhere and when.

  1. i'm also going through our old photos and uploading them for relatives to copy...lots of military photos.

  2. This is so nice!

    I just wanted to thank you for stopping by my blog Budget Blonde! It's a new blog and I really appreciate your comment about the headboard!

  3. That Tribute is great !!!!
    He has been very handsome young man. Old photos are so beautiful. I think I'll but some old photos in my blog now in summer too, some day. There aresome pics from our neighbour old summer house and me as a child :)

  4. Hi Kathy,
    Nice Memorial Day tribute to a long-lost relative and war hero. I love old family photos.

    I got the old-fashioned stamp by googling Memorial Day Clip Art ~ email me at and I'll send it to you.


  5. I wish we had more of the old family photos.

  6. That birdbath is fantastic. What a great way to save money and the sky is the limit on how you can decorate/embellish it. It can even be a planter. Thank you for visiting my blog and for leaving the comment.

  7. Hi Kathy,
    Have a great Sunday ~ thanks for stopping by!

    Which New England state?? Massachusetts? As you can see I'm in CT.

  8. HI Kathy!
    I guessed wrong. ;-)

    Thanks for stopping by today.

  9. My husband's great-great uncle was a Civil War vet - a fifer in the Iron Brigade. He is buried in a cemetery within walking distance of our home. We walked there on Memorial Day a few years ago, planning to put a flag on his grave.
    He already had one. The cemetery decorates the graves of all veterans buried there, even those from the Civil War.
    We were impressed. And pleased.

  10. Hi, Kathy... that luna moth is cool. I've never seen one. We probably don't have them out west. Like Fireflies.

    Also, the Orphan Photos is fun. I kept hoping I'd come across someone who might be in my family. I'll keep looking.

    Thanks for having a fun site.
