The William H. Gardner Family Album
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.
