Bio and Links
Bio Photo My main interest is in the Confederate Section of Old City Cemetery here in Lynchburg. With there being more than 2,200 soldiers resting there from all of the states of the Confederacy, the labor of love will continue for quite some time. So many of these men left home to never be heard from again. I am often times humbled walking around in this section. The staggering number of young and old men whose families have no idea where they are. I get the greatest feeling of elation when a current family member finds one of these men and the circle is closed when they are back with family. I owe the greatest debt of gratitude for member LJH who has helped me numerous times in correctly identifying the men.

*Please do not post death certificates on any of my memorials.*

If you are a family member to anyone of the memorials I have posted, I will not hesitate transferring the memorial over to your care. That is why I do this. All I ask is that you please use some tact when requesting a transfer or making a suggestion for an edit.

If you have a better quality photo of any grave marker than the ones I have posted on my memorials, please post it. If not, please don't post it. Thank you. I put a lot of effort into taking good quality photos. These last couple of years have been a learning experience, but I think I have got the hang of it, finally. I hope you don't mind my posting a photo to your memorial, even though you may already have one or more up. ***If you do not want my photo on your memorial, please let me know and I will remove it***. It is so very important to me to take a good quality photo as I want to make sure the info I put on a memorial is correct on the chance that a family member will find the information and be able to use it. I always spend a little extra time wiping off grass clippings or bird poop, but that is all. Sunny days are best for a good photo, morning shadows really make a stone pop. Photoshop is your friend as well :)

RE: C Burkhalter
It's interesting that he is buried beside PCP since both men are hard to locate in service records. Puzzles all around! I'll let you know if I find more. Glad to help, Linda

I have been away and just got back last night. Emails galore, love them when they are about genealogy. I appreciate all the notes to me and for your efforts. My family is in Virginia graves and I am in Utah now so all the help I get I am appreciated for.

RE: Thomas Hyatt
Hi Darrell, I am working from a Roster of CO B, 35th Regiment, and he is the only Hyatt on the list. Since there is other info that links hims to this CO and Regiment, just disregard what I sent. Sometime the info on the roster isn't entirely correct. J

RE: Gail Phelps
Afternoon! I finally found Gail's photo and added it to her record.

I'm glad I kept it for all these years.

Thank you (and Edie) again for your help.

Have a Great Day!

Darrell -

Thank you so much for your help! It is truly appreciated. I live in Maryland and am unable to travel so the only way I can get pictures of these graves is through generous people like you. Thanks again.
