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 useful information about Confederate physicians and can help correct spelling errors. Find A Grave memorials have provided valuable information for the register and in turn, 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.

Dr. John A. Graham
We have lots of info on Dr. Graham's family, but no photo of the Doctor. Do you have one in your database?

info re: Dr. John A. Graham
Hi-- I was doing a little research on John A. Graham and found out he attended the University of Virginia in session 33 (1856-1857). Just FYI if you want to add it. -- Jean Cooper

Dr. George Alexander Owen
Hi there,
You added the grave on FAG for Dr. Owen. We are looking into buying his home (historic) and trying to get the home through the process of being registered on the national registry. You reference that he's buried in the Owen Family Cemetery in Powhatan, VA, but I cannot find WHERE specifically that cemetery is located. Do you have the information? Or know where I could find it?

Dr. William Pryor Richardson
Dr. Richardson and his second wife, America Williams Christian Richardson are buried at the Methodist Episcopal Cemetery on Sturgeon Point Road in Charles City County. Even though the gravestones are no longer there, obituaries of the two indicate that they are buried there. He lived at Ballardsville, a plantation that he owned in Charles City County. He turned his home into a hospital during the Civil War. He died there of carbuncle in 1877. My grandmother donated his eyeglasses and some other artifacts to the Virginia Was Museum in Newport News some years ago.

Confederate Doctors
Hi Dr. H.
Just curious, have you ever run across the names Dr. L. Slater and or Dr. Bennett W. Green?
They were New Kent and James City County doctors and both served as Asst. Surgeons one with the ANV and the other with the CSN.
Also, though he served as a cavalry commander and not a doctor, Chesterfield, VA. Dr./Col. William B. Ball was also a physician at the time he served in the Confederate Army.
Forgive me if I'm sharing with you stuff you already know.
take care,
