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.

Thank You, again.

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
Terry

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.
