I'm a Homesite Acreage REALTOR in Montgomery County, Texas...working on my Family History when I can...joined F-A-G not long ago and have already had alot of success, I think this is great and would like to applaud all involved!

I am also a Member of the Class of 1979 at St. Frederick CHS (Go WARRIOR'S!) in Monroe, La., and have begun a new project...gathering F-A-G info for all our deceased ALUMNI....and would like to THANK all my fellow WARRIORS for any assistance!!

NO WARRIOR LEFT BEHIND!

...and now I've been vol-recruited by the 75th Ohio Inf (yep, YANKS!), to help get all members of the original CW Regiment located &/or memorialized! This was the unit in which a GGGrand-Uncle, Capt. Thomas J. Wheeler (#22988649) served with until his death in 1863...he died of multiple GSWs inflicted on the first day of the Battle of Gettysburg!

NO WARRIOR LEFT BEHIND!

On 1/19/2011 my father, CMDR Thomas J. Powers passed away suddenly....upon hearing the news I immediately sat and began his Memorial (Find A Grave Memorial# 64427239) which I posted to F/B as I was unable to speak of it on the phone. He was very proud of the work I had been doing on Ancestry & F-A-G, both for the Family...and for the "forgotten" CW Vets! He had just visited "Chancellorsville" the day before his death and purchased 2 books for me there, one was "The Last Days of Thomas J. 'Stonewall' Jackson"! RIP Dad.

NO WARRIOR LEFT BEHIND!

SUMMER 2011...Frank & Jesse James CAPTURED!

In my TREE!!! My Dad died suddenly in Jan, leaving a lot of unanswered ???s on his maternal side as his mother had died just after his birth, and her mother died when she was only 4, and her mother, when she was 22....3 generations all died young in Ark, away from the Old Kentucky Home!!? Then a 2nd cousin of Dads found me thru F-A-G, who provided a lot of new info that sent me up several of his "lost" maternal lines and resulted in several surprises such as his GGG-Gpa was GEN Jesse Cole Lindsay (KY Militia)! I was excited with this till I discovered his sister was the Grandmother of FRANK & JESSE JAMES....making me their 2nd (4x's) Cousin!!! Then also there was my GGG-Uncle, COL John Anthony Lindsay (CSA-Ark), #75652636, who served GEN Sterling Price in the 1864 MO Campaign as his Guide!!! I finally found those REBELS in the woodpile I've been in search of all my life...in SPADES!!! Iiiiiiieeeee!!!

My Dad never knew any of this....DA*N!

Would you turn over maintenance of Alonzo Vincent's record? He is my great uncle and I am working with his great granddaughters.

Thomas Jeffers, Marshall cemetery, Clark county, Ill.
I don't believe this Thomas Jeffers is the one in Co.G. See 91318757 Thomas Jeffers in Dawin cemetery. There is a picture of his stone. thanks, Kay

RE: Larry Bordelon
Vince, he found out on June 10, 2014 that he had a mass in his liver. He just thought he was in so much pain from falling off a ladder. VA wasn't on top of things. He refused chemo and was doing natural stuff and oxygen ozone therapy. In January this year the tumor was so big it grew into the vena cava. He passed on February 22, 2016. It was all so sad and I am still not believing it all. I miss him terribly. I made a page for him here.

Ira H Shaw
Hi Vince, just wanted to thank you for photo of tombstone of my 3rd g grandfather Ira H Shaw (memorial #67185375). Volunteers like you make the Find a Grave website simply the best! I don't have his exact birth date but it should be ca 1806 and I was wondering where the birth date of 1820 on Find a Grave came from. If you have any info I would very much appreciate it! Sincerely, Jane Hodgson

Clara R Starkey
Hi Vince,
I can find only one Clara R (Rosetta?) Starkey who died in Leicester England UK. She died in late 1961/early 1962. Is this the one you are looking for?

I live about a 10 minute walk from Welford Road cemetery.

Regards,
David.
