I noticed that you left a photo of the medallion on the Miles Mausoleum at Arlington National Cemetery. Thought you might want to know who these eleven people were.
Lt. General Nelson Appleton Miles Find a Grave #2289
Mary Hoyt Sherman Miles, his Wife, #42202751
Col. Samuel Reber, Son-in-Law, #42202196
Cecelia Sherman Miles Reber, Daughter, 42203174
Yulee Noble Miles, Daughter-in-Law, 42203128
Colgate Hoyt, Mary's Nephew, 42202885
General Sherman Miles, Son, 42203106
Allyn Richmond Wight, Grand Son-in-Law, 42202946
Nanita Yulee Miles Wight, Grand Daughter, 42203669
Nelson Appleton Miles, Grand Son, 42228493
Miles Reber, Grand Son, 42203306
They are listed top to bottom. Colgate is the only one not descended from Lt. Gen. Miles. If you know "Cut & Paste" you may want to add the text between the stars to the photo of the medallion. Don't include the Stars and I want no acknowledgement for this data, Please!

I'm an historian and fellow Find a Grave contributor. Could you transfer John Hood, 58464080 to me? I've written a biography for the men who served as CO of battleship Texas.

Please link him to his parents:

Here's his POW record! Let me know if the link doesn't work.
|Catherine||RE: Hugh Saunders Stevenson|
First, thank you for maintaining his Find-A-Grave memorial. You're doing a great job.
Second, do you have any photos of Hugh's wife? Or other photos of Hugh and his children? His son, Charles, is my grandfather. I would greatly appreciate receiving copies if possible. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Third, didn't know if you knew or not, Hugh was a builder/contractor.
Fourth, the family home in Snow Hill is known as Chanceford Hall. There are many pics of it on Google Images. Good thing, too. After they were taken, someone purchased the house but couldn't hold onto it. His last act was to strip the home of its beautiful woodwork and mantels.
Family Stories about Hugh: During the Civil War, he vowed he would not shave his beard off until the South won, as evidenced by the pictures on his memorial. There is also a family story that he was imprisoned for about a year by the Yanks. Haven't been able to confirm that story though.
