RE: N. Niener vs. N. Milner Pratt
Thank you so much for the information. I will address the issue. With your notation on Johnnie Pratt Jr. photo, I have requested the linking of his wife's memorial to his memorial.

Best Regards,

Thank you so much for getting the photo of Claudius' grave marker. This clears up the name issue. I am quite surprised you were able to get the picture while the government is "shut down". I could not even access the Beaufort National Cemetery website. All I could get was a message that the site was down do to the government shut down. I am hoping that the person managing his Find a Grave site will correct the name now. Claudius is my 3rd gr uncle. The family has a memorial stone for him in NY. His brother my 3rd gr grandfather was captured outside of New Orleans by the Texans from Houston.
Blessings to you,

Thanks so much for taking the time to do the photo's of this great uncle. It's kind of funny because I was in Hilton Head last week vacationing with my girlfriends and we ended up spending Tuesday in Beaufort and I went to the cemetery and took pictures. But yours are much better! I will share them with his grandchildren and great grandchildren!
