Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello from New Mexico.
I've been excavating and cataloging pioneer cemeteries for over 30 years. In the 1980s I even published a few works on the subject. Like most of you, I'm also an avid genealogist. While I enjoy finding the graves of famous people, I'm more interested in the common soldier and pioneer. Every one of them has a story.

As for genealogy, I am currently working on the surnames Trine, Minter, Dozier, Shackleford and Marquez. I'm also collecting the names and graves of the Maryland 6th Infantry.

I'm usually "on the road," so my photos come from wherever I happen to be. I've had the pleasure of meeting hundreds of wonderful people who share this love for history. Contact me if I can be of any help to you.

ABOUT TRANSFERS: I am happy to transfer anyone who is not my direct ancestor.

RE: Walsh Family
Hello,

Wow that's incredible. Thanks for making the information available to other researchers. Would you be able to put me in contact with your cousin? I'm actually doing some research in West Virginia right now. My email information is available in my bio.

I also reached out to Doran/Walsh/Gallagher.

Thanks Eddie,

Mat

Hi Eddie,

Was wondering where you tracked down the photos of the Walsh girls. Been doing a lot of research on the family and thought you might be able to share your source with me.

Leah Anna Walsh Kirby # 144269480
Julia Ann Veronica Montague Walsh # 146548224
Mary Helen Walsh # 146549426

Thanks!

RE: Joseph Zeigler
I found a Joseph D. Zeigler on the Illinois Civil War musters. He was a 1Lt in the 114th IL US Infantry, mustered in 9-18-1862. Native of Waynesboro, Franklin Co., Pa., living in Springfield, Sangamon County, IL, at the time of enlistment at age 20. The PA connection helps perhaps.

RE: Joseph Zeigler
It appears the photo may be correctly matched but of course I cannot say for sure. In the 1881 Bios of this county, Joseph's father Henry was stated to be from Franklin Co., Pa. You can read that info here:

I have no other info regarding this man or his family other than what is already posted and the above info but can look around for any other tibits a bit later.

I think the monument is either wrong or the date is not seen correctly. I have walked and recorded many cemeteries and others have seen the dates differently and I then can see the correct year.
