Bio Photo 8/18/2014: I think I need to take a break from this site. For any of us who have been on this site for a while, I am sure you have noticed the same things that are causing my frustrations. Too much pettiness, too many people looking to have the most memorials and too many pop-up advertisements. Sad really as this seemed like such a great idea when I first signed on.

RE: Lowell Hudson
I have made the connection to parents and sent edit with parents links for John Holland Hudson. I am related to Hudson's in that area but can't find a connection to these Hudson's.

RE: Joseph Creasey
Thanks for much, Darrell, for offering to put your picture on the page I made for Joseph Albert Creasey. (I have many Spring Hill pictures that are too large to post.) I should have looked for another listing for him before I posted. Probably, his Find A Grave listing should by spelled "Creasy." He was a sister of Mary Jane Creasey Hall, my great-grandmother. Her name was usually spelled "Creasey." Their sister Minnie Drewry is also buried in Spring Hill.

RE: Lowell Hudson
I sent a request to Find a Grave to combine the two cemeteries links together to prevent mistakes and duplications.

Are you going to be creating the memorials for his parents or did you want me to do so.

Darrell - Just a "Thank You" for this memorial you added only 10 days ago. He's a cousin, and others had him confused with another Wm Grant d. 1863, buried in Alexandria (from US Army). You've brought him home.

RE: Alex Jarnard
Know nothing about him. Suggest you post question on LOUISIANA IN THE CIVIL WAR MESSAGE BOARD. Someone there may help you.

RE: Pvt Theophilus Wells
The 1st Va.Inf.Battalion was nicknamed "The Irish Battalion" because so many Ireland natives were in its ranks.

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

Pvt. John Amos Thomas Ried
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?

Thanks, Terry
