|Baxter B. Fite III||RE: Corporal Joel Thompson Martin, Co. A,86th Illinois|
Marjorie, Thanks for the message. I just thought I'd try. I'd love to add his biography to his Find A Grave site. Like I said, I've been working on the history, service records and family history on the 992 men who served in the 86th for over 30 years now and already have tons on the Martins, just thought it'd be nice to add it to his Find A Grave site so all could see it.
I continue to be amazed at the number of Find A Grave Contributors who have decided that biographies are not appropriate for Find A Grave when the Creators of Find A Grave set up the sites so that biograhies could be added. I love Find A Grave for the fact that it's free, and in one site you can see pictures of not only that individual, but pictures of his tombstone and all sorts of biographical information, plus have direct links both to his parents and the past, but links to his children and descendants. I LOVE IT!! I have heard from descendants of the 86th almost daily for over 5 years since I started adding all of the photographs and biographical information that I have on each of the 86th. Most tell me that they have never seen so much information or so many photographs of their Civil War ancestor and their mess mates in one place before. I love writing about these guys and telling the story of their service and sacrifice to this country. I just always hope to see it make their Find A Grave sites. He served his country for almost three years and was almost certainly in the ranks on that fateful, June 27, 1864, when Captain Jo Major led approximately the 45 remaining men of Co. A in the assault on Cheatham Hill during the Battle of Kennesaw Mountain, Georgia. By the time the assault faltered, through no fault of their own, the Eureka company had suffered over 50% casualties, the highest among the companies of the 86th, having 11 men killed in action, 9 men wounded and 6 others were wounded and captured. Three of the wounded and captured would not survive the war. I have sat at the breastworks on Cheatham Hill many times over the years and like to see these men remembered for what they did there.
If you ever change your mind, I'd love to see you add a biography to Joel's site, especially remembering his service to this country and his family. Thanks for all you are doing for Find A Grave. It is and always will be GREATLY APPRECIATED!! Sincerely, Baxter

Dear Marjorie, My name is Baxter Fite and I have been the Historian for a Living History unit, which portray the men who served in the 86th Illinois during the Civil War, since 1985. During this time, I have put together thousands of biographical information about the unit and the men who served in it. With the help of countless numbers of people, I have located the final resting place of 907 of the 992 men who served in the 86th. If you ever want a real challenge, I need help locating the final resting place of the last 85 or so. Check out my Virtual cemetery for my missing from the 86th.
Another lady who had the set up the site for Ezra Keller Conrad, who also spent his final years in Webster County, Nebraska, transferred his site to me, allowing me the HONOR of writing his biography. I have some work to do on it yet, but, would you take a look at it?
I would love to do the same for Corporal Martin if you wouldn't mind transferring him. I would be glad to transfer him back to you after I am finished if you are related to him, but, as I would on these biographies, I try to locate descendants with an interest in managing their sites after I have done what I can do and I hope to do the same with Corporal Martin.
Well, I had better close for now. Thanks for all you have done for Find A Grave and Thanks for considering this request. I would really love to work on a nice biography for him and his family. Thanks. Sincerely, Baxter B. Fite III (Find A Grave Contributor # 47203738)
Apparently surveys were done back in the 30's and 40's which recorded her burial here.

William's name is at the very bottom. I will try to get a better image of it.

Austria and Germany was pretty much considered the same back then and is often interchanged. I used Germany as this is what DC shows.

Not related. Information on memorial came from his death certificate which I added today.
