|junebug||Theodore Jones # 22589|
Mention of William Tecumseh Sherman and Battle of Antietam
(use/ don't use / edit as you wish)
About # 22589 , Theodore Jones, a descend wrote the following
(I've included what you already had on this memorial, as well)
Civil War Union Brevet Brigadier General. Served in the Civil War as Colonel and commander of the 30th Ohio Volunteer Infantry.
Theodore Jones was a Lieutenant-Colonel in 1861, after which he became Colonel. He was taken prisoner at the Battle of Antietam (also known as the Battle of Sharpsburg (Maryland)) which was fought on September 17, 1862. Jones was confined in Libby Prison for two weeks.
Later, Jones was with General William Tecumseh Sherman in his well-known "March to the Sea," a name commonly given to the Savannah Campaign, which left from the captured city of Atlanta, Georgia (on November 15, 1864) and ended with the capture of the port of Savannah (on December 21, 1864) - destroying military targets, industry, and more as they made their way. Operating so deeply within enemy territory without supply lines was considered an amazing feat among the annals of war.
He was brevetted Brigadier General, US Volunteers on March 13, 1865 for "gallant and meritorious services".

I have attempted to become a member of the forums. I have been accepted, but never received the email to initiate my membership (yes, I checked my junk mail). Help?
I would like to comment on the post under general help: F. A.G. App - Easier to steal photos than ever. Particularly focusing on the issue of captions on photos not appearing on the Find A Grave app.
I sent feedback to the app's 'help' and received a prompt reply (great customer service);
"The app was designed for the caption to appear along with the citation for the contributing member. A bug is preventing the caption from appearing. We are working to correct this problem."
I'd just like to pass this info along...

Wanted you to know that there is a picture of JWG posted now. The young man that posted it, tells the Goodenow Family Association on facebook he is the 4th Great Grand newphew of Captain John Wesley Goodenough, and "Amazingly, a complete stranger found this photo of him in a 19th century photo album owned by a relative who acquired the photographs through a Philadelphia photographer who came to his town in New Jersey in the late 1860s or 1870s."
Is there a way to get a response from an administrator when you have tried for months to get a response from a contributor? No one seems to be minding the store! Find-a-Grave is a wonderful concept, but seems to be dying on the vine!

Hi Russ, Thank you for all the great work you do on FindaGrave! I was very interested to read your bio on Stephen Wheeler Downey. My great great grandfather was also in the Potomac Home Brigade.
Would you please link Stephen to his parents back in Maryland:

This person is no longer in here.
Please remove this person from Find A Grave.
Could I please get Find A Grave to take over my Mem's.
Most of them I have given to other people.

Bernice (#46530900) member:
She posting obits on memorials without my Family permission of maybe even the newspaper. I asked her to remove the memorial and this was her reply on my Family.
RE: Dylan Owens 119473805 memorial!
I will gladly delete my memorial for Dylan after you have added one and will get the credit for it. Let me know when you have done so.
She even posted the picture which is not hers., she took this picture from the obit as well or from the funeral home. I read findagrave rules about posting and she is not following the rules. I don't want credit I wanted it removed. I did post a memorial for Dylan Cole Owens as she requested!!! 125714189
He wasn't in the ground two days and she posted his obit which included the living! Against the law!
|Ken and Debbie Donahue||Forum Access|
I seem to be encountering some resistance with registering and logging into the Find a Grave Forum. I have completed the registration process and have been waiting for about 5 hours now for the e-mail that was supposed to be sent so I could complete the registration confirmation and participate in the forums. I have found no other way to get help other than addressing you directly.
|Winnette||James Edward White, his father, his grandfather and great grandfather|
Will you please advise how Donald Rich is now managing the memorials that I created for my Mother's family? He is not even kin to them. How do I get them transferred back to me. He could have so many others, too.
This breaks my heart. Of all the heartache I have experienced with Find A Grave, this has to be the worse.

|Neece||Civil War Veterans|
Is it possible to search the FindAGrave database for Civil War Veterans buried in Washington County Oklahoma?
