Peter H. Bunny cemetery
I have located the cemetery of Peter H. Bunn b. 6/16/1855
It is located in RMT. I was there as I had been told many years ago it was a Fisher cemetery however upon trying to clear it out I found Peter H. Bunn, his sister Mary Ballard Bunn Arrington and her infant children. There was another stone I could not get to and didn't take many photos due to it being like a jungle in there. If you need a specific location let me know and I can tell you. From the looks of it I do not believe any extended family has ever cleared the site. The fence around the mother and children has collapsed. If I return to area I will try to take photos of tombstones but honestly it took a couple of hours just to get to one tombstone of which was Peter and a stone S.E.A. Bunn couldn't make much out on it but might be his mother but due to size I really thought it was a child.

Whitaker memorial
Hi Helen
Would you mind terribly, going into the Whitaker memorial and deleting the photo where you are reflected in the monument? I have had the photo touched up and now there are two there. I would appreciate your help!

RE: Hugh Alexander McSwain
Hi Helen --
I do not have any Civil War Service Records for Hugh Alexander McSwain.

Hugh was a Medical Doctor living and practicing in Fayetteville, Cumberland County, North Carolina at the time of the Civil War.

Below is the documentation that I have from my own research:
"Civil War correspondence of H. A. McSwain is published in The War of the Rebellion, Official Records of the Union and Confederate Armies, Series I, Vol. XLVII, Part II, "Campaign of the Carolinas, at page 1348 as follows:

March 8, 1865.
Mr. D. G. McDuffin:
General Joe Johnston wishes to see you at his headquarters at Fayetteville Hotel to inquire of you with regard to the roads and streams between Fayetteville and the railroad to Goldsborough. By
calling as early as practicable you will confer a favor.
H. A. McSwain."
[McSwain #16]
[Note: Need to find out what part of the war this was and who McDuffin was]
"The marker at Hugh's gravesite bears a CSA [Confederate States Army] iron cross issued by UDC [United Daughters of the Confederacy] Chapter, Bethel Heroes No. 636 N.C. Division, which means he was recognized as having served in some capacity in the Confederate Army during the Civil War. [Griffin #62] A 2002 records search conducted through the National Archives failed to turn up any military service records, however."[McSwain #17]
The notes in brackets are notes to myself and the Surname with a number i.e. [McSwain #16] refers to my source document retrieval system.

I have personally visited and photographed Hugh's gravesite. I don't know in what capacity he served other than perhaps treating the wounded or as an advisor from the community. I am quite certain he was well respected. Perhaps that is why the Daughters of the Confederacy bestowed the Iron Cross.

Are we related? Let me know if you would like copies of the photo or other source documents.

Helen, are you related to S/Sgt. Sam A. Cooper Jr. or do you know anyone who is. S/Sgt. Cooper is buried at the Netherlands American Cemetery in Margraten, The Netherlands. His grave is adopted and the adopter(s) would like to get in touch with the Cooper family. Hoping you can help us. Thank you !
