Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am 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.

Lt. Richard Dwight
Transfer has been made.
You've impressed me today! Most people don't bother reading bios!
I'm not sure how I acquired this memorial. Looking back, it appears that I entered and linked children to him. Upon doing that, I usually send an fyi to the creator of the parent's memorial, in case they are relatives and have been searching for these children. Sometimes after doing that, I get a transfer even though I haven't asked for it.
That may have been what happened here.

In any event, this is not a relative of mine and I'm happy to transfer him to you.

Thank you
Thank you for this research and for posting this. Dr. Tanner was the Surgeon General at Moore Hospital at Manassus Junction at the same time that my great-great grandfather was admitted for pneumonia and died a few days later. While this is sad, it does confirm for me that there was actually a Moore Hospital at Manassus Junction, VA and helps me confirm the military record of my ancestor.

I added a photo, courtesy of Grant County Historical Society for Dr T J Groves. If you'd like to rotate the order of the photos that would be fine. Diane

Dr. George W. Ridgell (79101517)
Family information indicates Dr. George W. Ridgell (1831-1878) was a physician in the Confederate States Army. I don't know in which unit he served. He was born in Alabama, lived in Arkansas, and died in Texas. Do you have any information on him? Thanks.

If you haven't found the memorial for Dr. John Dabney Stuart #129694276, I thought you might be interested in looking at it.

I hope your project is going well.
