|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.

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!

|Church Volunteer||RE: Dr. Cornelius Baldwin|
The memorial of Dr. Cornelius Baldwin has been transferred to you. Best of luck with your research. Per Dr. Robert Thomas Baldwin, he served in the War of 1812 as an Assistant Surgeon in the 4th Regiment of the Virginia Militia under Col. Beatty (or Beattie) at Norfolk, Va. For his military service, Dr. Robert T. received a bounty land warrant of 80 acres (which he sold). Dr. Robert T. married Portia Lee (Hopkins) on Feb 11, 1830 at the residence of her brother (John Hopkins) in Winchester. They were wed by the Rev. J.E. Jackson of the Episcopal Church; witness by Judge John E. Page of Clarke County. Dr. Robert died on Sept 11, 1863 and his widow moved to Alexandria, Va. Portia Lee Baldwin later received a widow's pension for her husband's service in the War of 1812. Dr. Robert's first wife was Miss Sally Mackey who died in 1827. (Source: National Archives, War of 1812 Pension Files, I have four pages from this file if you'd like copies). The only doctors of the Baldwin family-line that I have Civil War service info: Dr. Col. Robert F. Baldwin, said to have been the son of Dr. Achibald Stuart Baldwin & Kitty Mackey (the sister of Sally). Dr. Col. Robert F. lived in Staunton and d. 1879. And, Dr. Robert T. Baldwin, son of Dr. Cornelius E. Baldwin and Nelly Hite (niece of President Madison). He was said to have served as a Surgeon in the Navy. I hope this helps. Best Regards, C.V.
