Bio and Links
Bio Photo A biomedical engineer and physician who retired from a medical research career at the National Institutes of Health.

For the last 35 years, Jodi Koste, Archivist at the Medical College of Virginia, and I have been compiling a biographical register of physicians who served the Confederacy in a medical capacity. At the present time there are over 10,200 files in the database, but because of duplications through multiple spellings of surnames and given names, I estimate there were about 9000 different individuals who served as physicians. Cemetery documentation often supplies valuable information about Confederate physicians and can help correct spelling errors. Find A Grave memorials have supplied valuable information for the register and to those who use it.

Note: If you wish to know the source of a photograph or document I have added, click on it for an enlarged version and then read the caption.

I will get to his lot and take another view. Can also get the lot card to get the location in the lot and who else might be there. Will send or add when I get it done.

John C. Bates-Oddfellow Cemtery Gatesville, Texas
Hello Dr. Hambrecht,
I am working with the Coryell County, Texas, Historical Commission to obtain a Texas Historical Marker for Dr. John C. Bates, buried in the Gatesville Oddfellows Cemetery.

Thank you so much for the information posted on Dr. Bates' memorial.

We wondered if you have any more information such as where Dr. Bates attended medical school, his parents, or other information relating to his life before the Civil War.

Thank you for any additional information you can provide.

RE: Dr. James L. Kearse (#141730225)
Terry, I surveyed and photographed this cemetery about 2 years ago. If William Kearse, Sr. is buried in this cemetery his grave is unmarked. All of the graves that I found are listed. As you can tell from the photos that I have posted for James Kearse there are no other graves next to his. Sorry I couldn't help, Wimsang

Thank you so much for this bio and accompanying photos. I had not seen the Nov 1863 statement before. On a similar note, I just found him referenced in Kate Cumming's book (diary) and so began researching him again. He's my 2nd great uncle.
