Welcome to week #17 of Taphophile Tragics on this blog.    I am looking for feedback, please, so if you are leaving a link, please leave me a comment — in particular, I am curious to know if Taphophile Tragics should continue on a weekly basis, or move to an every-other-week meme.   So please let me know what you think.  Thanks!

My list of links appears on a separate page — I’m sorry, but until I bite the bullet and upgrade to the pay version of WordPress (which, right now, I’m debating), this is how the Linky works.

Samuel Peaslee Jr.jpg


Mr. Peaslee is buried in Linwood Cemetery in Dubuque, Iowa.   The first time I find him on a census, it’s 1920, and he shows on the record with his parents, Samuel C. Peaslee, and Angie Peaslee.   His father shows as being a bank president, and Samuel, Jr. has an occupation listed of being an order clerk in a factory.

This is, of course, after he has served a year in the U.S. Naval Air Force Air Expeditionary Forces, sent to Europe in World War I. Considering the high casualty rate for the AEF (and, in general, for the war), I wonder if he was in for only a year due to injury and was then sent home.


I am following the same rules for this meme that Julie had set up, and have all the information on my page for Taphophile Tragics.   Please include some details of the cemetery in which you took your photographs, and link directly to your post, rather than simply to your blog in general.   I enjoy hosting, and seeing everyone’s posts!  If you have any questions or comments about my hosting (or anything else), please leave a comment or send me an email (Liquidityoftime @ gmail dot com)
