I'm not from American but have always had an interest in the war between the states and the confederates. I have read about general Paxton. For a man who fought for Southern independence and I'm thinking he had some ancestors fighting the British in the American war of independence, I see he had ancestors who came from the North of Ireland. That part of Ireland is under British Rule. Scottish planters were brought to Ireland in the 1600s and the native Irish were run off their land. It seems general Paxton was descended from the planters and we still have division in the North of Ireland. Wouldn't it be great if all the people could get together and liberate the North from British Rule. Just like the US did and fight for independence like they did for Dixie.

Thank you for recognizing my great great grand father for being a true southern hero in the confederate army. I was searching for members of my family and came across the grave finder site and saw your message. My dad also spent time in the Air Force (23 years to be exact)

Thank you for the flower of my 2nd great uncle's memorial. But, you may wish to review it as he deserted his unit and signed an oath to remain out of the south until after the war was decided. He really doesn't merit commendations for service. Just thought you would want to know.

Thanks so much for answering. I apologize. I mis-read your post on my great grandfather's page. I looked at your address and saw South Carolina. I do have relatives from South Carolina just not that grandfather. I was hoping you had more information about him as I know very little about him.
Thanks so much for all you have done and continue to do for our country. My father was in the army for 23 years and I also have had several policemen in our family.

I was wondering why and how you posted a statement about being a civil war veteran on my great grandfather's find a grave page. He did in fact serve in the Civil War but not for the state you have included. My great grandfather, Christopher Heideman, served from Georgia.
Thanks for letting me know,

On this tombstone, it says that Jane Smith was the wife of Mendel Smith, while in the bio it says that she was the wife of Thomas L. Smith. Was she married twice? Thomas L. Smith is my 4th great uncle through his sister Priscilla Smith who married James Corbett. Thanks in advance for the clarification.
