I am a retired Huntsville Alabama Police Officer. I have been a student of local history for many years. My main interests lie in Alabama Civil War Units. One of the saddest things about the Civil War was that so many young men left home and were never heard from again. Their families never knew how or where they died or where they were buried. Thanks to the work of many Findagrave contributors, I have reunited many of these brave men,if only in a virtual cemetery. These cemeteries are a constant work in progress. There are three that I hope I never add another name to. I welcome any and all info on any of my memorials and am always happy to transfer your kin folk. If you visit the memorial of any of these brave men, please honor them in any way you see fit. Whether or not you believe their cause was just, does not matter. What matters is that men from both sides fought and died protecting the only way of life they had ever known. "Alas! In how many Southern homes aching hearts waited through weary months for news of loved ones that never came until the suspense was replaced by the real certainty that the absent one had helped to swell the unknown dead of the Wheatfield, the Peach Orchard, or the Devil's Den of a Northern land."--J. Howard Wert. Sometimes I come home from work with a sore back or tired feet or maybe even a headache. Then I think of a 16 year old boy lying wounded in a dark field. He's hundreds of miles from home. He's thirsty,hungry and cold. He's crying for his Mama. Or I think of Robert and Sarah Milling, of Dallas County, who lost their five sons to the Confederate cause in the 20th Alabama Infantry. Suddenly, I don't feel so bad afterall.|

|Jamie Fisk||John Thomas d. 1909|
You had entered the following information before transferring to me today.
Company F 34th Georgia Infantry CSA. Enlisted as a 2nd Sergeant at Trenton, Georgia in 1861. Discharged from service May 3,1865. His military pension was applied for in Jackson County, Alabama August 12,1909 by his widow, Martha Thomas.
I could not find his pension application by Martha on Fold 3. Where did you find it? I would like to see what else it might have about his life. Thank you! Jamie

Thank you for transferring the memorial for John Thomas to me. Also, I appreciate the information you entered regarding his military service.
|Darrell Landrum||PM Buncomb|
Hi Hutch, I posted a memorial and photo for this gentleman, but am not sure I have his name correctly spelled. I went with what is in the Diuguid burial records. His memorial is 125160558. Fairly certain he was with the 15th Alabama. Any help is always appreciated.
Your story was amazing and I love the kindness you show to those who add information~ I appreciate you transferring John Jackson Butler to me~ I will tend him with care ~~ blessings to you

i did enjoy your heartfelt story very much. It has made this convoluted and arduous search for ancesters so much more real.
|Betty Chambers||Abner Palmer|
Thank you for transferring the Abner Palmer memorial. And thank you for all the hard work that you have put into this project. I look forward to exploring.
|Donnie Stanford||Jesse M. McMunn|
You have a Jesse M. McMunn, memorial #62845031, in Limestone Church Cemetery. He is buried in the Whitaker Cemetery, in Madison County, Alabama. His memorial is #27220176. He is listed as O.M. McMunn. His tombstone has Jesse M. McMunn. If this is the same person can you remove him from Limestone Church Cemetery? His obituary said he died in Madison. His wife is buried in Limestone.
Thanks, Donnie Stanford, Son of Confederate Veterans, Thomas H. Hobbs Camp 768.
