Estate of Mary Crump plot
Are there other graves marked or unmarked in this plot? If so any chance of them being added in the near future? Thanks

RE: William Kroesen
William's grave is unmarked. I took pictures of
Cora and Jane's markers and also an overall picture of the lot. William is buried between Cora and Jane and as you can see there is no marker. Looks like he is entitled to a military marker. Suggest you contact the cemetery and get the paperwork started for that.

Photo Copyright
I am a Great Grandson of Capt. George Jeremiah Shepardson. I was excited to find the photo you posted on his Find a Grave website. I would like to use the photo on my Ancestry Family Tree and on my Wikitree Website. Is it copyrighted? Can I get permission to use it?

I have two large oil portraits commissioned by Capt. G. J. Shepardson. One is of his father and the other of his infant son (my grandfather). I would be happy to share photos of them if you have any need.

Thanks. Dick (Richard D. Shepardson)

I just completed your edit for Charles Fenton and wanted to tell you that I love the photograph of him and his medal that he received. How special that you can share these.

If you would like him transferred to your care...just send me an edit with your contributor's number.

Good luck with your genealogy,

Hi, Could you please send your correction information again. I think I accidentally responded to your request when I was trying to respond to another. Thanks

RE: Pvt J W McCullough
Thanks to you, I may have lived to see another picture of a veteran of the 86th. I would love to know a little more about the picture, but, under the circumstances, we would probably never learn more about the picture, where it came from, etc. I know little about the McCulloughs. I can't even find him for certain in the 1850 or 1860 census. I don't know who his parents were, I don't know if he had any brothers or sisters. When he enlists, it is recorded that he was single. After his death, Burkhalter talks about a wife, perhaps just a mistake, but, who knows at this point. Perhaps he did marry in the three or so weeks before they left for the war. I do have several records of marriages of 86th Illinois vets during this time. I doubt McCullough left any children, but, there again, who knows and not knowing about brothers or sistersand not being able to identify the family, I was questioning whether there are any descendants of the family living. I definately know of vets of the 86th, who do not have any living descendants today. The family just died out.
I am thrilled you found the picture, but, I wish it was in the hands of some family, who could tell us more about it and HIM and how they came to have it. Unfortunately, probably most pictures of Civil War vets have gotten out of the hands of family now and those stories are lost.
I think I will pass on bidding on the picture. Not the best of times for me the last few years, job wise, and at this time of the year, I have grandchildren to think about. Thanks for locating this picture for us though. At least we got a copy of it for his site. I tried to go through the rest of his pictures and do not find any other pictures of vets of the 86th.
Well, I 've got to take my son to work. Thanks for finding the picture and thanks for letting me know about it and getting it for McCullough's Find A Grave Memorial. It is GREATLY APPRECIATED!! Keep me and my work in mind. Baxter

RE: Pvt J W McCullough
Jeff, Thanks for letting me know about this. I never would have believed that I would have seen a picture of J. W. Mucullough. At the time he enlisted he was recorded as being single. However, Capt. Burkhalter stated he had a wife in his diary. So perhaps J. W. married sometime between the time he enlisted and the time they left Peoria for the war. I know of several 86th men who did.
I am not a current buyer on ebay and currently do not even have an active address with them. Would you consider writing the seller and see what you can find out about how he came to have the picture? If you do contact them, you can give them my email address.
Thanks for the email. Baxter

James W or F Wilson
I just did some research on Shockoe & Hollywood Cemeteries, and Libby Prison and now realize they were/are all in Richmond! I'm guessing that's why the family of my James Wilson (CSA) disinterred his body at Shockoe in preference to Hollywood. I'm cautiously optimistic, thanks to you. (Three of five brothers died in the war.)

My husband's roots are in VT, so we plan to find the resting place of his 14th VT family member next spring.

Looking forward to visiting Richmond soon. Can't thank you enough!
