To Whom it may concern:
On the page for Thomas Tingey Craven, is mention of one “Frank W. Jackett” as his son-in-law. His real
name is Frank W. Hackett, my great grandfather, He was the “future Assistant Secretary of the Navy” referred
to in the bio. Incidently, he is buried nearby with his wife Ida Craven Hackett.
Frank Hackett was a classmate and close friend of Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr., a hero of the Civil War and future Supreme Court Justice.
My family is proud of our heritage at Arlington and we would appreciate this small spelling correction to your site very much. I look forward to my next visit to Arlington. Thank you for your great site. Tobias Everett

Michael Robert Patterson was born in Arlington and is the son of a former officer of the US Army. So it was no wonder that sooner or later his interests drew him to American history and especially to American military history. Many of his articles can be found on renowned portals like the New York Times, Washingtonpost or Wikipedia.
