|Bio and Links|
I am a retired biomedical engineer and physician who enjoys genealogy and who loves trains - model and real.|
For the last 25 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 helpful to those who use the register.

|Lyn Banen||Dr. John D Kent|
Hello, I'm a researcher working to locate the grave of Dr. John D. Kent, of Amherst VA, who graduated Jefferson Medical College of Philadelphia, March 1854, and died in Bedford County, VA, in 1859. The year before attending Jefferson Medical College, Dr. Kent attended the University of Virginia 1852-1853. Before attending medical school he also worked under a Dr. Kendrick, who was his preceptor. Any information you can share would be greatly appreciated.

I thought you may want to add Dr. Minor, Memorial #14328231, to your Virtual Confederate Cemetery. I have posted his photo as well.
|CL Hileman||Dr. James F. Harrison|
I have posted a photo found in the belongings of my great grandmother, the daughter of industrialist C.A. Marwitz of Germany and Norfolk Virginia; from the University of Virginia, a Dr. James F. Harrison, your Memorial # 83346359; it appears he was a Professor as well as a medical doctor. During the epidemic of Yellow Fever in Norfolk, 1855, he was acting Assistant Surgeon at the Naval Hospital, Portsmouth, on August 14,25,30, September 2, and December 7. His wife died 1855 of Yellow Fever.

I will look forward to reading it. It's always awesome to find out about the people whose memory you hope to preserve. Thanks for the update and do send me a message when it is done. Have a great day.
|Rich Ryals||Dr William Christian Warren|
I think Dr Warren was also a Doctor for the CSA.

Let me know if you want any other transfers. Looks like a great project.
|Donna Wilmarth||Dr. James Anderson Agnew|
I have just transferred Dr. Agnew to you. Please let me know if there are any family member of Dr. Agnew that you would like me to transfer.
|BIRDMAN||RE: Dr. Henry Clay Beckham (#142880195)|
I did not save the photo you are requesting. If you have it, go ahead & post it up. It is very unfortunate that the creator of the memorials deleted them. I know we lost at least a thousand from Edge Hill alone.
I am curious as to why or what caused the move to delete them. I know many have a real problem that Find A Grave founders sold out to Ancestry. It rubs me the wrong was as well, but I am thinking of the manyI was able to reconnect with family members with the memorials and photos I have placed on Findagrave.....turncoats or not. I do this for family members, NOT the founders. I hope you have a great day!
