|Adrienne Dancer||Thank you|
Thank you for your kind message on Stephen Pinkney Dancer's memorial page. (He was one of my great-great grandfathers.) He was at the Battle of First Manassas, the Battle of Seven Pines and then wounded at the Battle of Gaines Farm, losing mobility in his left arm. He thankfully made his way back West, returning to Mississippi and then on toTexas, spending the next 50 or so years living with a rifle bullet in his shoulder. And thank you for your service!

Thank you for leaving a memorial to my GG Grandfather. Did you know, his first and only battle was at Lookout Mountain where he fired off 11 shots before he was captured by Federals. He spent the rest of the war at a POW camp at Rock Island, IL. He stated that food was short and occasionally they would get a piece of mule meat that they made soup from. After the end of the War For Southern Independence he was released and walked back or caught a few wagon rides to MS, where he was from. He later became a circuit riding Methodist minister in AL. and MS. he had been assigned to the 19th or 27th Mississippi Inf. (I think) as part of Col. Walthal's Brigade, Army of TN.
Now, if I just find one of those supposedly "despicable" Confederate flags to place on his Find A Grave page as part of my memorial to him, as he obviously did serve as a Confederate soldier, though my ancestors did not own slaves nor fight for slavery. Obviously Find A Grave does not provide any such flag images.

Thank you Sir for your Memorial Tribute! God Bless

It is time to remove the Confederate Battle Flag from Find-a-Grave and retire it to a place of honor. Please honor our veterans using another, more appropriate symbol.

Thanks for the great honor that you gave my great Grandfather. I had no idea that he was a Civil War soldier. I was born in TN but moved to Indiana when I was only 6 years old and am now only starting to do some reaserch on my Grandmother's side of the family. My Grandmother (Maggie) was the youngest child of Jake Graves.
Thanks again for your input - I really appreciate your comments.

Thank you for the message you left on my Great Grandfather Joseph Benjamin Barrett's site. He and three of his brothers all served in the CSA. Thank you also for your police service to your community. We too are a law enforcement and military family. Our son retired after 20 years as a police officer and is now a Lt. in the Sheriff's Department of our county here in Texas.

Hello sir,my name is Tim Parker. I live in Hickman Co. TN. Just over a month ago I added a Richards-Turman Cemetery in Hickman Co. TN to the findagrave index. There are two Confederate soldiers buried there, William Richards and James IRA Richards. Not many people know about this cemetery. Come to find out, I went to school with the landowner's wife and they are both related to me. Thank you and your daughter for service. Tim

Tony: Thank you for the memorial on Adam's grave. I just found another memorial for Adam in another cemetery. It looks like I put him in the wrong one. I'm deleting the one I posted. Please go to 101949387 and repost your memorial. Sorry for the confusion. Judykay

|William Farmer||Capt. Absolem Junious Farmer|
I'm looking for info on my great great great grandfather Capt. Absolem Junious Farmer. I've been through just about every public record on the fellow and i am now tracking down extremely distant relatives. I am writing a chapter about his death at the Battle of Allatoona pass(it's historical fiction). I thought to ask the people who have left him virtual flowers because they might have info on him. I thought of this because i went and found his grave and it appears that his marker had been redone. So, someone else out there must be interested in his life.
Do you have any kind of info on him or his life that you could give me? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
William Farmer (I am related to him on my mother's side, my mother just happened to marry someone with last name Farmer.)
