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 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 all who use the register.

Dr. Randal M. Lytle
Memorial Number: 133084729

I just found Dr. Randal Lytle, a surgeon who served in that capacity during the entire war. I hope that you'll add him to your collection.

RE: Alfred Richardson Gourrier
Thank you! Dr. Alfred Hall is my Great Great grandfather and Dr. Alfred Richardson Gourrier is my Great Great Uncle. Thank you so much. I do have other medical ancestors (like Dr. Alfred Hall's Father); however, as William Hall, MD from Charleston SC was before the War Between the States I doubt you have details on him. Thank you for any information you wish to share. Do you have articles or books published?

Alfred Richardson Gourrier
I have been researching my Gourrier ancestors and Dr. Alfred Gourrier was my great great uncle. I have visited his tomb and found some of the information you published on Find a Grave. I would very much like a copy of his biographical sketch. I have another great great grandfather who was a doctor, also practicing in St. Gabriel LA. Dr. Alfred Hall, he is buried at the St. Gabriel church cemetery along the river. Any information you can give me about either doctor would be appreciated. I know Dr. Hall received his medical degree of Tulane in 1858; however, I cannot find proof of Dr. Gourrier's degree. Dr. Gourrier was one of 6 brothers who fought for the Confederacy and returned home. His father was a doctor who obtained his license in England (I have a copy of his diploma) I belong to the United Daughters of the Confederacy and have proven lineage to both doctors among my ancestors. Dr. Alfred Hall was the son of a Dr. Wm. Hall from Charleston SC.
Again, I appreciate anything you can or are willing to share.
