Find A Grave Memorial# 27725270
Barney Maxey was my 2nd great grandfather. If he is not related to you would you consider transferring him to me?

Many thanks.

David, Thanks so much for taking such quick action on William's transfer. Also I noticed that you added another photo, which I had never seen. In his later years Robert Benjamin Whitton [Ben] looked very much like this picture of his daddy. Ben was my uncle.

Thanks again and please continue all your hard work. It is greatly appreciated.

George B Gray
Could you tell me where you found the information that you have listed for George B. Gray on the info at Springville cemetery, Coushatta, Louisiana. You have information that he was a Confederate Soldier in the civil war in co. I 3rd La. Infantry as a Pvt.

All our military records show that he was a Union pvt from Maine in the 7th infantry Co. B. from 1861 to August 12, 1862 after he was injured. He did live and die in Red River Parish and he is buried beside his wife Helen Irene Gray and two of his sons, Isaac and William. I do have a picture of his marker that I took and I attended the funeral of Helen Irene Parker Gray in 1949.

Thanks for your help.

Betty Crain,

Well, I don't know where the other middle name came from. Everything I see now is entirely consistent with this being the individual I was looking for.

Sorry to bother you.

John H Carlton

I cam across the memorial above in Caddo Parish, LA. I think he many be the relative I've been searching for with the same birth date and a death year that matches. The one I'm looking for has several relatives in the Keatchie cemetery. Sisters and their families. They are descendants of Henry E. Carlton and Mary Thomas Eads. Mother died in 1851 and Father died in Aug 1862. I see he is on furlough in Aug 30, 1862. Possibly a death in the family

I see someone has noted that he had a son Henry and if this is the one that is his father's name.

Wondering if you might have any more information. I had him as James Julius Carlton instead of James H. Carlton. But names were fairly fluid in the days before birth certificates.

David, Thank you very much for the transfer of the memorial and I appreciate you very much searching out Confederate Graves that our ancestors can be properly remembered.

Added by Tom Hough on Aug 28, 2014 12:52 PM

I searched my sisters name and her husband but to no avail. I see that her husbands father is at this cemetery so I am pretty sure that this is the correct one. Looking for Donald G and Terry L Shires. but you people in their 50's. Im not from this area but Illinois and the trip I had to make to bury her is pretty much a blur. If you can help I sure would appreciate it. Thanks Kathy

Mr. Hill,
The memorial for Mr. John J Dial has been abandoned or the creator of the memorial is inactive. You are the only "Friend" connected to the memorial. I apologize for bothering you but was wondering if you might be able to add some of this information to Mr Dial's memorial?

I am not related. I just thought "The Father of Dialville" should be remembered.

Thanks for your time.


Henderson Times, Dec. 4, 1928
Prominent East Texan Dead
Mr. & Mrs. John L. Slover of this city were recently called to Dialville on account of the death of Mr. Slover's great-uncle, Mr. J. J. Dial, for whom that town was named. Mr. Dial was one of the early settlers of East Texas, and was widely & favorably known. Upon one of many floral offerings at the funeral was the following wording
"Father of Dialville."

Hi David,
I sent this message thru Edit and have not heard from you on this matter. Hoping to hear from you soon.
This memorial is a bit confusing so I was hoping you could help. I saved your headstone picture but could not make out a name or any info. Joel Manuel created a memorial for Francois LeDoux in 2001. The birth and death dates are very similar except for the headstone that Melissa posted with his dates. Please check the other memorial and let me know what you think.

Peter McKittrick
I am researching the Pointe Coupee Artillery and McKittrick is listed as "Peter E. McKittrick" on his Vicksburg parole document. He signed the back of it "P. E. McKittrick". This is the only record of his serving in the PC Artillery. Many previous muster rolls were lost. I can find nothing else about him at all. What I presume is his brother Benjamin F. McKittrick was killed serving in the PC Artillery at Fort Pemberton.

James H Burnett
Do you have information on a James H Burnett that I believe was a confederate soldier and is related to the Burkett family buried in the Gilgal Baptist Church cemetery in Claiborne Parish, Louisiana. He may have died during the War between the states. There is a memorial for him but the headstone linked to it is a James Burnett from Illinois. I would appreciate any information you might have on him.

Scottsville Cemetery
I recently visited the Scottsville Cemetery. I would like to find some information about the church and if possible be guided through it. Can you tell me who I may contact about the church?

Ruth, Louisiana
David, I would guess that with your record of accomplishments related to cemeteries, graves and Find - A - Grave, that you might be aware of a small town in the Lafayette, St. Martinville area that was known as "Ruth." I do not find it on a census and yet it was supposed to exist circa 1850 - 1860 and perhaps more recently.
