I'm a husband,Dad,Son,brother, GrandPa and a friend. I found this site on accident while I was searching for some death records on Mom, I admire these people and am thankful to these fine folks at Find A Grave. My wife Cheryl, and I love to go graving together, we love the thought of helping to bring some comfort to family or friends of those resting in the cemeteries that we visit. I am a life member of the SCV & MOSB and a member of the Order of the Confederate Rose, and my wife is a life member of the Order of the Confederate Rose, and a member of the United Daughters of the Confederacy. We love to photograph and record the resting place of ANY Confederate veteran we come across as well as install a Confederate flag to indicate his service to the CSA. We also love to reenact at battles of the war of northern aggression and to do living history events to educate the public about this tragic time in our nation's history that is purposely being omitted from our children's curriculum.

RE: John Edward Perlis Simpkins [Send Reply] RE: John Edward Perlis Simpkins J, I just thought you would like to know that I have just today been authorized a Confederate head stone from the Veterans Administration, and after it's delivery I will install it and there will be a marker dedication cerimony with full military honors. If you would like for me to, I will send you the information once the details have been finalized. ===================================== WOW! I am VERY PLEASED that you would think of me and include me in this endeavor. Is there anything I can do to help?
I do so hope you'll be able to post pictures of the headstone! HOW EXCITING!
Will there be any paperwork for the ceremony? I surely would love a copy!
Please let me know if I can help in any way! You've been SO helpful and such a kind friend! I'm here if I can do anything!
THANKS A MILLION!
Most Sincerely, j* (Judith L. Newman - Mesquite, Texas)
