Crow cemetery
Eric, I found 3 civil war vets in Crow cemetery. They are missing birth & death dates. Thought maybe you may have them in your files. Thanks.

Cypress Hills National Cemetery
Hello Eric - I saw you requested the gravesite photo for Jacob Cunningham. It was missing half the plot location. I sent the complete one in to edit so either of the 2 volunteers who go there every week (JP Rayder & Tom) will be able to find it.

RE: Hi!
My great-great-great grandfather was Martin Campbell, Jr. (1836-1918). He enlisted as a Sergeant with the Union Army on Aug. 15, 1863, Company M, 6th Cavalry Regiment. He received a disability discharge on March 27, 1865. He is listed in the American Civil War Soldiers Archives. The Civil War started in 1861 and ended in 1865.

Can you confirm or have info. that his grave site is located in Bowling Green Cemetery, Clay County, Indiana. I am in the area and would like to visit.
Thanks very much.

Indiana Civil War Soldiers
Hi Eric! I ran across your memorial for Col. Warner Lowder Vestal, and have sent edits to add his parents - Jabin Vestal and Charity Lowder Vestal (Jabin is the brother to my 3rd great grandmother - Ann Vestal Atkinson).

Co. Vestal married Frances S. Young in Washington DC on 11 November 1865. ( Source: "District of Columbia Marriages, 1811-1950," index and images, FamilySearch ( : accessed 05 Oct 2014), Warner S Vestal and Franc S. Young, 11 Nov 1865; citing District of Columbia, United States, Records Office, Washington D.C.; FHL microfilm 2079252.)

I've not proven, but I suspect his wife Frances is findagrave memorial #125486980. Her birth and death dates are right, but middle initials of both are wrong though.

I have found some more biographical text for Warner on these links:

and Warner & Frances' deaths are recorded in California death records on this link (page 496):,228687801

Anyway, I also have some relatives who were in the Civil War.

Larkin Bicknell, memorial # 2859427.

Alonzo Greeson, died from battle wounds. He is now interred in the Chattanooga National Cemetery (#71213162) but local library records said there was a local cemetery memorial. I have searched the cemetery for this local memorial and am unable to locate it now (memorial # 79485213).

My 2nd great grandfather - Enos Allen, memorial# 36657558.

and Thomas Asbury Gossett, brother of my 2nd great grandmother, Mary Elizabeth Gossett Turley, a POW survivor of Andersonville Prison who ultimately died from his injuries and disease contracted during his incarceration at Andersonville. (Memorial# 135280871). I found that Thomas wrote of his time as a prisoner of war. The document is posted in Based on this document, I have sent an email to findagrave to see if Thomas Asbury Gossett's memorial will qualify to classify as a 'famous' memorial and am awaiting reply.

I have a small virtual cemetery for civil war soldiers you can check to see if there is anymore you could add to your virtual cemeteries.

If you have time, I would appreciate virtual flowers left on my Revolutionary War ancestor - William Hoit (memorial # 68922225) who was killed in battle at Fort Ticonderoga, and his son Benjamin (memorial # 120139805) who witnessed his father being shot. Thank you.

Hi Eric,

Thanks for the info, I have added it. Let me know if you want a transfer. Have a nice evening!

Eric, I have added the Civil War info to his bio. You can delete the info from the virtual flower section. Anytime you have info to add, please send it to me instead of adding it to the virtual flower section and I will add it to the person's bio.

John Somervill
Hi Eric, I was reading a book by Sharon Carmack called "Your guide to cemetery research" and came across a photo on page 104 showing a headstone for John Somervill, Pvt, Co.A, 25th Indiana Infantry. He is buried in Evergreen Cem. in Colorado Springs, CO. His Findagrve memorial is # 23649841 (the memorial has a photo also).

Martin Thomas
Since there was no record of him in the Old Winchester (Heaston) cemetery, I looked for him at Fountain Park where many graves were moved to. I found a soldier by the name of Martin Thomas died in 1863. Could this be the same one?

Pvt Andrew J Phebus memorial 33688996
Hello Eric

Andrew, his wife Sarah Strieby Phebus & at least 2 children (Mariah & Martin Phebus) are buried in George Mock Cemetery.

Hoby (findagrave member 47183125) took the picture of the memorial stone which is in a tree there

Mock Cemetery (Tippecanoe Twp, Kosciusko Co,IN) is a small family cemetery began by the John Mock Sr, a son of Johann "Hans" George Mock "Mack" aka Soldier George & his wife.

George Mock Cemetery (Turkey Creek Twp, Kosciusko Co,IN) is an even smaller family cemetery began by "George" John George Mock, also a son of Johann "Hans" George Mock "Mack" aka Soldier George & his wife.

The 2 cemeteries are in the same county.

Please update the cemetery for Andrew. It is not too hard to do & if you need help, I could walk you through.

I am a distant relative of Andrew's wife Sarah Strieby Phebus.

Thanks for taking the time to read this.

RE: Benjamin Hays
You are very welcome! There is a center headstone I will be adding plus the other family members in that plot if you are interested. He was hiding in plain site. I've looked and looked for him!

Thank you
Hello Eric,
I sincerely appreciate the transfer of John Henry Stewart's memorial. I have it updated with his family members I have been able to find memorials for, and also added his military history which I found in the book, Centennial History of Grant County Indiana, along with his history as I was able to piece together. It is quite interesting (and long!) if you are interested in reading it. :) With sincere appreciation,
John Henry Stewart, memorial 63471592

RE: Book
I'm hoping to update as many cemeteries and get photos from each as I soon as I get caught up on requests. I've been getting side tracked, the cemeteries are in such bad shape. Most don't seem to be vandalism but maybe the hard winter and then no one picking up stones that have fallen, just mow over and they get buried. Instead of sitting down and crying, I start snapping photos of the ones that are in danger of disappearing. I will start a file of Civil war Stones. I'm amazed at what that D-2 does to the stones. They look like new. I ran into Headstone Healer at Riverside Cemetery the other day and he showed me the difference. Casey is supposed to be at Mc Cormick's Creek SP today demonstrating carving limestone, hope to meet him. We have some grave circles at Riverside. Sometimes there's a big stone in the center with graves radiating out from the center and stones forming a circle. Some are very old. You have any idea why they would do this? Religion, Masons?
