Myron L. Boyington
He was my maternal Grand Great Uncle. We just returned to Texas from visiting the Battle Field at Gaines' Mill to photograph the probable unmarked grave and get an overall feel for the site before making an entry to find a grave for the family. During the visit I had the pleasure to personally talk to Bob Kirck, National Parks Historian at Richmond as well as visit Cold Harbor and the Killingfields at Gaines' Mill. When I attempted to enter my info on find a grave, I discovered that you had already set up an entry for Myron. I would like to request that you released the maintenance of his info to me as a direct relative with more family details to post.

Alfred B Smith
Please remove the Veterans Card on the Alfred Byron Smith memorial #30726697. This was for another soldier. According to his pension records, Alfred Byron Smith only severed in the 9th Pennsylvania Reserves. He enlisted in the 9th Pennsylvania Reserves, Company G (AKA 38th PA Vols) on July 11, 1861 and was mustered into state service on July 15, 1861. He was mustered out on the completion of term on May 12, 1864.

Hi Dennis,

I wanted to thank you for adding photos of my gggrandfather's enlistment during the Civil War. I have been to Greenmount Cemetery, and hope to visit there again this fall to honor his memory. My sister and brother and I are planning a trip to Gettysburg. His unit was present on Cemetery Hill during that battle.

Benjamin Franklin Bennett - CW vet
I have added a detailed obituary that indicates Bennett enlisted twice. He also suffered long-term effects of illness from his service. Could you please delete the veteran's card and re-load it in the category of "Other" instead of "Grave", "Person", or "Family" so that his marker photo will rise to the top of the page? Thank you for your help with this memorial.

James is the brother of my great great grandfather. I would like to take over management of this grave, since he had no descendants. I have 2 letters which James wrote to this great great grandfather confirming that he was in the 11th PA reserve unit Co A. They were stationed out of Washington DC which they called "Washington City". He describes where they are and what they are doing. He was on "Picket duty". Unfortunately he was only 20 when he was killed. Would you have any interest in copies of these letters? If you do, I would need a USPS address which you can send to my normal email Annette Gauthier

FAG memorial #86536610 for Alexander Van Horn
I am the G≤ Grandson of Alexander Van Horn (Jr) of Co I, of the 11th PA RES INF and also a member of the SUV. Do you have any proof that Alex is buried at Cold Harbor? Information I have shows the Cemetery was established 1865-1866 three to four years after Alexander was killed. Their records show that remains were collected from the surrounding area butI could not find any information of Alexander Van Hornís name recorded at that cemetery, maybe in the unknown graves?. Would appreciate any information you may have.
I am planning on putting a memorial marker at his daughterís grave site and not sure how to mark it as him being buried at Cold Harbor or listed as remains not recovered?
