|Bio and Links|
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. 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. ********* I'm having some problems with my E-Mail and can't reply or send anything out. Please send me a public message through Findagrave if possible so I can respond back in a timely manner.*********|

Dear Sir, please add my GGgrandfather to the 12th Ala Virtual Cemetery. His name is Williams "General" Bailey Find A Grave #24807662. He signed up as soon as he turned 17 to fight along with his brother James Earnest Bailey who died at Chanselorsville and was entered into the Roll of Honor. Today is Memorial Day and the CSA soldiers should be remembered.
Thank You Sir

John Morgan Stacks is my 2nd G Grandfather your memorial # 114740650 has him buried at a different cemetery than what is shown on his death certificate. There is another memorial # 41882944 that reflects his burial at Mcdade Cemetery, Townley, AL. Will you either transfer your memorial # 114740650 to me so I can delete it or if you prefer to delete the memorial yourself.
My Find A Grave ID is Freda #47730502
Your dedication to honoring the Civil War is impressive.

This is my gr-gr-grandfather (# 134041785) who died at Antietam on 17 Sep 1862. Would you transfer his memorial page to me? I will see that he is linked to his family, and will write a bio for him.
Thank you for all the memorials you have created!

I was doing some research this evening and found my great great great grandfather's memorial that you created, James W Robertson. Apparently he was a confederate soldier. I had no idea. Thank you for honoring him. I was wondering if you would mind transferring the memorial to me. His wife's name is Martha. I was just about to look for hers as well. I saw a picture of her headstone on his page.

You are Welcome.
I think that it's great you are doing this.
Sure Hutch you can transfer it. If you find any more info can you forward that as well. Thank you very much for honoring all these soldiers. It was a break thru for me to find him and that Lucy claimed the pensions. God Bless you for doing this. Debbie
