On findagrave the pic said to be Dwight is not him. This pic is John Wonsetler the husband of Dwights sister Lydia Kee. A pic of Dwight can be seen in the book "The Story of a Thousand" the history of the Ohio 105th.

Joseph Valentine Morgan
Here's additional information & a correction for Joseph Valentine Morgan # 42655960 at Rockville Cemetery. He is the son of Joseph Francis Morgan # 20777288 & Ellen Leigh Edelen Morgan #20696106, both at St. Aloysius Gonzaga R. C. Cemetery, Leonardtown, St. Mary's County. It looks like the Jr. & Sr. were mixed in the citations at Rockville. His birthdate matches with the known children of this couple at Leonardtown. He descends from a number of major Southern Maryland Catholic families.

His grandmother may be at St. Aloysius as well & his grandfather at Old St. Joseph's, Morganza, St. Mary's County, but I'll not link them until I find out for sure.

Thank you !

Nicholas Nimrod Pumphrey
Hello Gary,
I attached some files from the National Archives on the military service of Nicholas Nimrod Pumphrey, M.D. to my family tree.You are most welcome to peruse them.
They show that he definitely died in Camp Anderson, which was about 6 miles north of Little Rock, Arkansas, on 16 April, 1863. Other records show that at one point, he was relieved of duty in 1862 due to illness. His death due to fever a year later is tragic, but very common under the circumstances. It is nearly certain that he would have been buried close by as the Union forces were arrayed not far from Little Rock that year, in their campaign to capture the city for the Union side. Even though he was an officer, the command would have no resources to ship his body back to his family.
In addition, Pumphrey's family, (his wife, Lydia Orr is our 2x Great Aunt) had relocated with their children during the War away from Independence, Missouri to Council Bluffs, Iowa.
An incidental note but interesting to our family history is that Nicholas Nimrod Pumphrey was the only person on that side of the family who fought with the C.S.A. His brothers in law (Orr family) all joined the Union Army.Even his cousin Lot Pumphrey fought for the Union side.
Another curious note is that his parents Nicholas and Cassandra were closely related....kind of like first cousins.
Anyway, you might want to update the Find A Grave record for Nicholas Nimrod Pumphrey. Record # 171565900.
