|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.

Thanks for adding the image of his bone saw. I just saw it in The Medicine Man in Texas!

Thank you for the book titles.
I found a copy of Physicians and Surgeons of America: a Collection of Biography Sketches online. This is the link to Ogier's page. https://archive.org/details/PhysiciansAndSurgeonsOfAmericaNLM56510380R
I have not yet obtained a copy of A History of Medicine in South Carolina, 1825-1900, but today found a photo in another book: Portraits of Conflict: A Photographic History of South Carolina in the Civil War by Richard McCaslin.
The text in both books is about T.L. Ogier, Sr., but the pictures are different. The photo of McCaslin's book (courtesy of the University of South Carolina, Columbia; photographer George Cook) is the same one that was previously posted on Ogier, Sr's Find a Grave page, which I notice it is no longer there.
What are your thoughts about this discrepancy? Have you seen the photo in A History of Medicine? If so, does it match either of the photos I've mentioned? Could one of photo of Ogier in uniform be Ogier, Jr. who died in 1863?
If you do not answer queries like this, I understand but thank you in advance if you can help me.

Fine job you did on the memorial. Very interesting indeed!
|Jody Gladden||RE: Dr. William David Kersh (#21200428)|
You are very, very welcome. So glad you could add information for him.

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.

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.
