Do you know if there is a headstone for Cecil Genell Loftis in this cemetery. This is my mom's sister that died about age 10. Thank you. Barbara Loftis Martin.

Capt Edwin INGRAM 1843 obit
Thank you for posting the obituary: I tried to transcribe it; but, still struggling with some words.

12 [Jun? 1843], died:
A Man? of the Revolution.
Died in Montgomery county, NC, on the 12th indstant, in the 93d yr of his age,
Capt Edwin INGRAM,
a soldier of the Revolution.
Few persons lived more beloved or died more lamented than the subject of this notice.
Devoted to all the duties of life
--a ideal husband, and affectionate father, a benevolent neighbor
--love of country was his ruling passion;
and next to the ferver of that piety that glowed in his heart was the order of that patriotism which constantly burnt in his bosom.
His service to his country during the Revolution were of the most efficient character.
At an early period of the struggle, he voluntarily left a home blessed with every comfort that heart could desire, and, tearing himself from the c...of the most um...and accomplished companion, went forth the brave the hardships of "the tented field."
At first he enlisted as a common soldier, but soon rose to the rank of Captain, which he filled with distinguished ability.
He was in the regular army but a short time, for the action of country in which he resided was constantly filled with Tories, and to their subjugation his forts? were contherd? Many were the families in the western part of the State who regarded him as the vigilant protector of their property, and the guardian angle of the firesides.
He served under Gen. MARION, and was on his way with him to join GATES when they heard of that officer's defeat at Camden.
Kind in all the relations of life, neither the losanguiscal? field of mortal strife nor the savage cruelties of Tory warfare could chill the sympathies of his nature? or contract the benovolence of his heart.
After the eulobrated Flora McDONALD had been plundered of her property in the neighborhood of Fayetteville, she removed to Mountain Creek in Richmond county. The subject of this notice gave her such aid as was in his power, furnished her with a horse, and naibied? her to Charleston; whence she departed for Scotland.
For sousn thau abuact men to be war, she vrestoern part of the State was infusted with a clae of peruns, who setting the civil authorities at defiance, plundered the wixah and unprotected with impunity; nor, indeed, were the possessions of the most powerful at all secure against the malnudations of their daring villaicy. To the extermination of these lawless depredatros etc, INGRAM devoted several years of his life, as well as the greater part of his property.
For his services the Legislature voted him a gratuity of five hundred pounds, which, on accounty of the embarrassed condition of the State, he refused to accept.
His life was a continued secxe? of patriotic exertion for his county, and active benevolence for his fellow men.

Kelly, did I answer your question about Nimrod Mitchell? I was looking through my public messages and I am not sure. If I did not, please feel free to ask again.

Thanks for you help.

I was hoping that you had information regarding this person. I believe that this is the son of Marshall Marcus D West and Mary E. Henderson. Dates seems to fit etc. and some of his uncles and Aunts are buried at Jones Cemetery in same area.

Anna Maria Ansel
Anna Marie Ansel:

I find 3 different years for her Birth.
Grave headstone read 11/19/1843.
Death Certificate read 11/19/1844.
1860 Census(When researching her Brother: Gov. Martin Frederick Ansel) reads 1845.

Her Grave is in Wahalla, SC - Saint Johns Evangelical Lutheran Church graveyard. #85577992

I am a descendant of their Sister ( Caroline Margaret (Carrie)Ansel who married John Henry Ostendorff on 2/27/1868)

I am more inclined to believe the date of 1844 is correct. I have found information that her older Brother ( John Jacob Ansel, Jr.) was born 5/15/1843.
If "1843" was correct that would be ONLY 6 months between them

Hi Kelly, he is not in the Confederate section of Old City. The Diuguid records state that he was removed and sent to Atlanta. Sorry.

Elijah Edmonds
My GGGrandfather is Elijah Edmonds, I'm doing research on the family. First. Thank you very much for all the information you have on his family line. Are you related to him? If so would you be willing to share information? Second, may I ask where you got his birthdate? Is it on his headstone? When I reference his death certificate it shows that he was not yet 73. He was 7 days shy of his birthday. So his birthday should have been the 22nd of the month. I am trying to make sure I record my information as correctly as possible so I am interested in knowing if there is another source for this date. Thank you so much and I look forward to hearing back from you.

Hi Kelly, I just sent you a couple of edits for this gentleman, before I looked at the Diuguid burial records. Their records state that he was removed and sent to Atlanta. If the weather cooperates this weekend, I am going out to Old City to see if there is a grave marker for him. If so, I will get a photo and post to your memorial and will let you know what I found.

Best regards,

Seaman First Class Paul B. Wilson
Seaman First Class Paul B. Wilson is listed on the Walls of Missing of the Sicily Rome Cemetery in Nettuno, Italy. He was lost in or near Sicily in July 1943.

You took a picture of his cenotaph, the Wall of Missing listing his name, or any other picture or documentation. I would like to ask your permission to use that picture for my project about the temporary American GELA Cemetery in Sicily, where over 1,200 men and women were buried between July 1943 and April 1947. If his remains would have been found, he would have been buried at Gela.

I have my project available on a DVD, titled "They stayed behind".

Of course you will be credited
