Bio Photo 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.

We corresponded earlier this year. I have an article about him that came out today in a newsletter of the McLennan County Medical Society. Dr. J. M. Willis served as a Confederate surgeon. Contact me if you want me to forward it.

Thank you for sharing information on my great,great grandfather Dr. Sterling Brown Frost on find-a-grave.. I am very interested in his military medical medical service. Are you going to publish your research on Confederate physicians?
