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.

I made the transfer of the memorial. Thank you for all the research you are doing on those who served in the Civil War and were medical doctors.

I have a photo of Dr. Charles B. Addison's headstone in Barnwell, SC if you would like to add it to his memorial.

Dr V Quesenberry
I was at Graham Cemetery in Orange, Virginia today. Unfortunately, Dr Quesenberry does not have a grave marker. He is listed in the cemetery records with the first name of Vivian. Sorry I can not be of any more help. His grave location is Grave 10, Lot 2, Range 3, Division 9. I visited the spot and there is no marker.

William R Whitehead 120221997

I believe I found something that indicates that William Riddick Whitehead (and son William Jr) were removed to Fairmount Cemetery in 1904.

Ref: Records of Burials, Riverside Cemetery: 1876-1963; Denver, Colorado; Denver Public Library online index at

Love the information you posted on William R Whitehead. Very informative.

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.
