In my short time partaking of this hobby, I find myself spending extra time to clean-up around veterans grave markers. I am an amateur photographer, but am learning some neat tricks to take the best photos I can.|
If you have already set-up a memorial here, I hope you do not mind my putting up an extra picture. Early morning and late afternoon sun light seems to add a nice glow to the markers, so I post those pictures as well. If you do not want a picture I have posted on your memorial, please let me know and I will remove it. At the same time, if you have posted a memorial that I have taken a photo of, I will make every effort to contact you if there is an error on your memorial. It is our duty as volunteers of find-a-grave to get it right for those who are trying so hard to find their loved ones. I have been working on getting a memorial up for all of the soldiers in the Confederate section of the Old City Cemetery here in Lynchburg. If you can help in any way with any additional information or corrections, especially with the memorials I have up for those men, please don't hesitate to let me know.
I enjoy doing the footwork to get photo requests fulfilled if you don't mind doing a little bit of paperwork/phonecalls to find out where your loved one is buried in a given cemetery.
Being a military veteran and proud of my heritage, I would not take kindly to seeing anyone do anything to desecrate the American flag. It does amaze me though to see an American flag on a Confederate soldier's grave. Before you chastise me on that stance, try to get your mind into the world that these men lived in. Do not preach to me about being politically correct or that the hard feelings from the Civil War died off long ago. These brave men died far from home, defending what they thought was right. They earned the privilege of having a Confederate battle flag or a flag from their home state on their final resting place! They gave their lives for the cause. Please do not disrespect them with an American flag on their grave. They fought against that flag, not for it.

Know nothing about him. Suggest you post question on LOUISIANA IN THE CIVIL WAR MESSAGE BOARD. Someone there may help you.
|Peggy Torgerson||RE: Lora White|
yes, I would appreciate that! Thank you for your time!
|Scott Hutchison||RE: Pvt Theophilus Wells|
The 1st Va.Inf.Battalion was nicknamed "The Irish Battalion" because so many Ireland natives were in its ranks.
|Sarah Reveley||RE: William Perry|
He was a Private in Company B. That's as detailed as the school got. (The Battle of New Market is a big deal to VMI - I didn't go there but my ancestor was one of the cadets and I joined in the search for their graves)
This is what VMI archives say:
William Edward S. Perry, Class of 1867: New Market Cadet; Private, Co. B. Genealogy: Born- July 4, 1846, in Bedford County, Va. Father- Oliver H. Perry; Mother- John Claiborne. Pat. Grandparents- unknown. Mat. Grandparents- unknown. Married- Emma Lee. Children- three sons, and one daughter. Names of two children known: Oliver and Sadie. Career- Farmer. Died- October 29, 1880.
Take a look at our website:
I just made a virtual cemetery of all the New Market cadets at http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=vcsr&GSvcid=471006

I see you left a message to the person who shared my GGGrandfather's burial site in Rapps Mill Cemetery. His military record can be found at: Military Records of Individual Civil War Soldiers as John Amos Thomas Reid.
Company E, 27th Virginia Infantry Confederate States Army
I would like to know more about his service. Can you give me some resources?

8 years later I don't recall my source of info. It may have been a regimental history or a cemetery book on Lynchburg cemeteries. However,it does seen that my info came from a postwar roster.

thank you for you service to our country
thanks also for taking a picture for me
|Jeannie Edwards||C.W. Richardson|
Thank you so much for going out there. I was actually trying to see if may be the C was a G. But in the mean time I have found my G.W. Richardson. He was buried in the Blandford Cemetery in Petersburg. He had been in the hospital there, and I just didn't know how far out he may have been buried.
But again, thank you so much.

I notice you have taken photos of some of my relatives headstones. May I use your photos on my Ancestry online tree? Thanks.
