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: James Andrew Gaunt
Hi Darrell,

Boy did I goof! One of the GAUNT researchers brought my attention to the full name. It should be Andrew Jackson GAUNT.

I am getting forgetful and need to be more diligent in my data.

Sorry if I caused any problem.

Thanks again,
Linda Cashen Gaunt

Thank you so much for the tombstone photo; so many of these CSA soldiers' burials are lost. I appreciate all you do on Findagrave.

RE: Pvt Houston L Todd

Thanks so much for the photo of Pvt Todd's marker. I'm amazed you were able to get this photo and it is certainly beyond my expectations. My gr gr grandfather served in Co D as well as other family and connections from Calhoun County. I am trying to identify the final resting place of as many members of this company that I can.

RE: Pvt John C Williams
Thanks for the photo. It is for the right soldier. I've added information from his service record and changed his unit number to 2.

Glad to have your help,
