|Bio and Links|
A retired biomedical engineer and physician who enjoys genealogy and who loves trains - model and real.|
For the last 30 years, Jodi Koste, Archivist at the Medical College of Virginia, and I have been compiling a biographical register of physicians who served the Confederacy in a medical capacity. At the present time there are over 10,200 files in the database, but because of duplications through multiple spellings of surnames and given names, I estimate there were about 9000 different individuals who served as physicians. Cemetery monuments and images of Confederate physicians are appropriate additions. They also help correct spelling errors and should be of value to those who use the register.
Note: If you wish to know the source of a photograph or document I have added, click on it for an enlarged version and then read the caption below.

We corresponded earlier this year. I have an article about him that came out today in a newsletter of the McLennan County Medical Society. Dr. J. M. Willis served as a Confederate surgeon. Contact me if you want me to forward it.

Dr. Charles Duffy, Sr., aged 84 years, died on August 24, 1892 of malarial fever at the residence of his son, Dr. Charles Duffy, Jr. in New Bern, Craven County, NC. His body was brought back to his home at Catherine Lake, Onslow County, NC and buried beside his wife, Nancy Howse Duffy (died April, 1891) and his youngest daughter, Palmetta Duffy (died 1883). There are no markers for Dr. and Mrs. Duffy but there is a marker for Palametta Duffy.

It is good to connect families. Dr. Compton's daughter Nannie Compton McWillie is also in Greenwood Cemetery, Jackson.

The updates have been made to this memorial. Thank you
|Lee White||Dr William Xerxes Moseley (6654951)|
Thank you for getting back to me. I was trying to connect the William and his wife Mary together, but you rejected the request. So, I connected them together via Mary's memorial.
As far as Mary goes, I have sent a message to Find A Grave about Mary's birth year, but they have not put it into the bio section. The birth year on her headstone is indeed incorrect, as she was born in 1949. I will contact Find A Grave again, making the same request so that there is no confusion in the future about her details.
For William, do you know if he was only married once?
