|Bio and Links|
|I live in Maine, and am married with no children, unless you count the four-legged variety. I just adore cats. I LOVE Civil War history, and genealogy and family history too. I'm a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and work (volunteer) as a Family History Consultant at their Family History center in my area (when I am feeling well). I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2011, but I'm doing okay, all things considered.|

Hi,Rebecca, Thought I'd drop you a line and see how you are doing. We both have a passion for our Civil War Vets. When I am flowering them,I come across your name all the time. I pray you are strong and healthy this January. Blessings, Your friend from southern Maine, Susan♥

Rebecca, according to records that I have read, he died of wounds in the 5th Corps hospital at Gettysburg and buried east of the house (which probably was the hospital). In my research of Maine Civil War soldiers, I have found many "memorial" markers in their home towns in Maine, but have found their actual resting places in National Cemeteries.
In 1865 troops were sent out to various battle grounds and preexisting Corps hospitals to find Union graves and to re-inter them at the new National Cemeteries. Some still had primitive headstones, others didn't or could not be read and were unfortunately buried in Unknown graves. I have found that if a soldier was from a well to do family, usually an officer, they could afford to have the body shipped back to Maine or if not, the family would place a "memorial" headstone in their family cemetery in Maine. Is his stone in Maine a Military headstone or a family headstone?

I noticed you left a flower on Adam White's Find A Grave site. Are you related to him?
I am he is my Great Great Grandfather on my mother's side?
I was wondering if you know where in the cemetery his grave is located. I am planning a trip and I would like to visit his and his wife Magdelena's grave.

I only saw Pres. Hinckley once in person. I was a teenager and he was an apostle, in the early 1980s. He was extremely friendly and seemed to genuinely care for strangers he met on the street. I've never seen Pres. Monson in person. I do have a letter from Pres. Benson. My senior year in HS was BOM and our stake seminary had a fancy scroll made up saying that we'd all read it. We all signed it. He wrote back and we each got a copy of the letter.

I saw a flower you left for President Hinckley and figured you had to be a member. Just thought I'd say hi. Take Care & God Bless
