RE: William Archibald Ellington
Hi George, I don't know about that. I'm in GA for a week; when I get home I'll do some research. On Oct. 10th we are cleaning up the Byrd Cemetery; you are welcome to come by. We are staring at 10 AM and then will go over to Gum Creek Presbyterian Church fellowship hall for a pot luck lunch. Hope to see you. Joyce

RE: Thomas Phillip Jones Stark!
Local churches in Henrico. You have Shockoe cemetery in Richmond. Churches in Richmond took some in. Local families buried some on there land. It's sad that they hardly ever put down where they buried the soldiers after they died. Very rare if they put it in there military records. It was up to the hospital steward where to send them to be buried. Who was to build the coffins. If we new what company built the coffins they might have a record on where they would be sent and name of soldier. But there is no records right now to be found. As for Pvt. Stark he could be buried at Oakwood as an unknown. Headboards were used back then. If you look at my profile I have a picture of Oakwood April 1865 taken by Mathew Brady shortly after the surrender. You can see all those wooden headboards and how hard it would be to copy all those names from them.

No problem. I'm happy to help. I also took pictures of three other Ellington's graves. That were in the family area. If you want them I'll be more than obliged to give them to you. If you don't already have them.

Hello George - My grandfather was Thomas Hershel Ellington, brother of Harvey Ellington. We are doing a tree and hoped you might have information about their grandparents (Mary Lorene Cook) side.

RE: Julia Wagnon Ellington
I am not sure about the cemetery, sorry. I have only seen a copy of her obituary in your Memorial for her. Very odd! Perhaps they changed their minds after the obit was published? But she is not listed in the Ellington Cemetery, either.

Alabama Marriage records have "Nettie Wagner" (Wagnon) and "James V. Ellington", Marriage Date: 28 Apr 1885 in Lee Co, AL. All census before her marriage refer to her as "Nettie."
1910 has her as "Julia A. Ellington." Married 15 yrs. Mother of 3 children, 2 living.
1940 Census has her as "Julia Ellington."
GA Death Index has "Julia Ellington" died in Fulton Co. on 2 Dec 1947. I am sure you have the right person and the right info.

I'll do some more checking around and let you know if I find anything.

Yes I read the complete story on his memorial page. It is a terrible tragedy for his mother and friends.

RE: Thank you for the photo!
George , you might try contacting WSAZ television in Huntington, they were the station that carried Saturday night jamboree.
Glad you liked the picture it was in stuff my late mom had.
