The William H. Gardner Family Album

Photo #8

That's me (Bob Gardner) visiting my great-grandparents gravesite at the North Cemetery, Manila, in July 2000. The site had been reconstructed and was different than the photo I had from 1950 (Photo #7).  I used the old photo to show the cemetery staff who helped me locate the site. Contrary to rumors that the cemetery was being encroached by squatters, the place seemed very well maintained. The memorial itself was sponored by the "American Eagles" service organization of which my great-grandfather was probably one of the original members in Manila.
