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. Vevion Quisenberry
Just came across your excellent memorial to Dr. Q, #9905895.
George W.E. Row, my great grandfather, whose wife was a niece of Dr. Q's wife, spent several months working at Dr. Q's drugstore in Butler, Texas. A letter written from there in 1871 describes conditions out there at the time, including rampant drug addiction.
While in Texas Row learned how to compound medicines. My family still has his apothecary scales.

Thanks for catching that error. I must have been "asleep at the wheel" to miss it.

RE: Donna Webb
You're very welcome. She is far in the rear of the cemetery among many singles - very few couples or pairs. No trees or decorations.

Dr. Arthur G. Beazley
Thank you for letting me know about the biographical details you've provided for Dr. Beazley on his memorial. I'm glad to have him in your registry, which sound like a very useful source of information. By the way, his death date is off a day at the top of the page (probably my typo). Also, could you do me a favor and put his obituary as the top photo? --because it has his picture. It'd be nice to see it without having to scroll down at all (I've noticed that in FindaGrave, if there is a picture of the person, it's usually at the top). Thanks!

Dr James E Kellum 42331809
Thank You for your research and maintenance of this page. I have been to the Fort Meyers Cemetery, and can not locate the grave as it is in one of the oldest sections. Apparently Sallie and George are within the same area, bot unmarked as well. I would like to get a proper marker in place, CSA and otherwise. Dr Kellum had two other children, Sallie, and James Evan Kellum. (recurring family name), James E was around 10 years old at time of father's death, and was raised in Alva by family friends. The Alva property is now currently Caloosahatchee Regional Park.
I am the direct descendant of Dr Kellum, and have several artifacts passed down as well. I am looking for pictures if possible. He was also in the Mexican American War during its last days as a steward, 10th Ohio iirc, and was an expedition "medic" with "General" Wallace traveling in to Nicaragua on a filibustering mission prior to the Civil War. He is documented relatively well, so being on Gen Longstreet's staff and as an acquantance of Thomas Alva Edison while in Ft Meyers, I was hoping to get a glimpse of a photo if possible. Always searching..

The War document with signature is amazing and greatly appreciated.
Thank You!

Article of Interest

What is your opinion of Dr McGuire's estimate that chloroform was used over 28,000 times in the corp in which he served (2d Corp ANV)? Do you feel this estimate is exaggerated at all or does that number of operations seem accurate to you? I have just read the article for the first time and was surprised by the number but really have nothing to compare it to. Thanks for any light you can shed.

Julia F. Jennings Hewitt Smith is in my family tree and I have been doing some research on her. Julia was born in 1843 to William Henry and Elizabeth Cottrell Jennings. In about 1859 she married Charles F. Hewitt. They had one child, Alice born in 1860. In the 1870 census Alice is listed as being 70 but it should be 10 years old. On Feb 4, 1864 in Henrico Co., Virginia Julia married M. W. Smith. M. W. Smith's parents are Luke and N.J. It lists her as being a widow. If you send me your email address I can send a copy of the Marriage record. I just thought this might help with your research. You can email me at

Dr. William T. McAllister
Would you consider adding my GGrandfather Dr. William T. McAllister to your virtual cemetery? His Find a Grave memorial number is 92304617. William graduated from the University of Virginia 28 June 1848 with the title of Doctor of Medicine. He was 19 years old. Is any additional info. available from the University? Thanks

One other thing about your site. Every other site suggests that Dr Olliphant married Anne Ogle Tayloe and not Virginia Jane Tayloe. Unfortunately the 1890 US Federal Census for Alabama was destroyed in a fire and that would have listed one or the other as his wife.
Do you have any information regarding this marriage?
Thanks for your help
