Celebrating Their Service - Adding Footnote Pages

I decided to add some Footnote Pages to commemorate the service of my ancestors who were in the military.  Footnote Pages are FREE for anyone to add to the collection.  Anyone can create a Footnote Page and add content (facts, images, stories, videos, links, etc.) to them.  Footnote has "seeded" their collection with persons in the Social security Death Index and the WW II Army Enlistment Records.  If you search for a person on Footnote Pages, there will be a Page for that person if they were in those two collections. 

The Footnote Pages that I had created previously for my soldiers and sailors included:

1)   Frederick Walton Seaver (1911-1983, my father):

2) Lyle Lawrence Carringer (1891-1976, my grandfather):

3)  Isaac Seaver (1823-1901, my second great-grandfather):

4)  Isaac Buck (1757-1846, my fourth great-grandfather):

I added three more today - Norman Seaver (1734-1787), Benjamin Seaver (1757-1816) and Martin Carringer (1758-1835), all Revolutionary War Soldiers. 

Unfortunately, they haven't shown up yet on (I hope that they were submitted, I spent a lot of time entering data and adding a story). When they appear, I will edit this post and add them.

One thing I don't understand is why the Facts for Isaac Seaver don't show on the Footnote Page.  The third image above shows a blank area, but I know that I entered the data at least twice.
