|Bio and Links|
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.

You are very, very welcome. So glad you could add information for him.
|fkelley||McLean Burying Ground|
You've listed several persons who are not buried in this cemetery. This is a small family site with only the four people I have listed. I'm not sure where you got your information but it's definitely incorrect.

James Nicholson McLean
Please correct your listings. Thank you.

|Dawn Marie Beals||RE: Dr. Robert Campbell (#132721787)|
He does not have a marker. This is the stone to the plot where there are numerous graves. His plot is simply lined in brick with no stone. The date is when the plot was created for the family. There is an additional WWI veteran with the same name buried in the plot and a child those are the only 2 with stones.

Very nice work on his memorial Terry, let me know if you find any other physicians that I have that fit into your work, would be more than happy to transfer them to you as long as they aren't my family.

Unmarked, no stone was ever placed on this grave. The cemetery historian will attempt to find documents to submit to the VA for a military marker but that is at least a year away. The cemetery has a full time surveyor, he has a very shiny chrome rod attached to a shovel handle, which he uses to locate missing stones.
|Wallace G Lane Jr||Dr William R. Robinson - Lot 814 Section 73|
The image attached to this memorial is not Lot 814 Section 73 and should be removed.
Dr. William Robinson's grave is unmarked; a military stone may eventually be placed on his grave as part of The Green-Wood Historic Fund Civil War Project.

Thanks for your message. There were a number of physicians at First Street Cemetery of Waco that were Confederate veterans. There were one or two Union doctors also at this cemetery. I believe all have FG memorials.
