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.

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.

With your research, maybe you can help me understand better who were the officers and physicians in charge of my great-great-grandfather, who died in a military hospital on January 10, 1864.

I will be glad to enter information you want to provide to his bio. You can send it in an SAC. I do not want to transfer.

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.
