Pvt Louis Smith
I visited Frankilton Cemetery in Henry Co Kentucky today researching my wife's great grandfather's family (Roberts). While I was there and took some shots to post on I took one of Pvt Smith and saw the info you posted on him regarding the "Orphan Brigade." My wifes maternal great grandfather was also in the Orphan Brigade. Here is a blurb...thanks for the info!

Notes from the Orphan Brigade web site
THOMPSON, Alexander A. Born in West Point, Hardin Co., ca. 1845; family of William "Curly Bill" and Louisia Thompson (family from Taylor Co.). Enlisted 18 August 1861 at Camp Burnett, age 19. Fought at Shiloh (where he was wounded, 6 April 1862), Murfreesboro (where he was again wounded, in the knee), Rocky Face Ridge, and Resaca (where he was wounded in the ankle, 15 May 1864). Detached for service in the pioneer corps, July-August 1863. Absent wounded at Montgomery, AL, May-August 1864 and at Macon, GA, September-November 1864 and January 1865. Returned to duty, 13 February 1865, and took part in the subsequent engagements of the mounted campaign. Died 21 July 1930 of uremic poisoning; buried in the Perkins Cemetery, near Bloyd's Crossing, Green Co. Kentucky Confederate pension file number 1958.

Alice P.
Pioneer Cemetery, Spencer Co., KY
I noticed you had taken a picture of the Pioneer Cemetery in Spencer Co., Kentucky. There are only two people listed in this cemetery but in your picture I see lots of tombstones. Is this cemetery the same cemetery as Old Taylorsville Cemetery or are they two separate cemeteries? I am trying to locate a Joseph Eggen, died Dec 3, 1896 and Elizabeth Taylor Eggen who died June 28, 1857. Joseph's obit said he was buried in the old cemetery next to his wife but I am not sure where that would be. He lived in Taylorsville and his funeral was held in the Presbyterian Church in Taylorsville. Do you have any information that may help me?
Thanks so much,
Alice Price

UPDATE on memorial
SIMPSONVILLE, Ky. (AP) When Mary L. Bailey's grandmother would take her to a Simpsonville cemetery to decorate their relatives' graves, the older woman would point out where a group of African-American soldiers in the Civil War were buried after being killed in a Confederate ambush.

On Sunday, Bailey, 80, returned to the site for a ceremony to dedicate a memorial to those solders, slain months after they turned from slaves into Union soldiers.

"I think it's beautiful," she said afterward. "Because we are honoring something that needed to be done."

The memorial, on U.S. 60 west of Simpsonville, features 22 headstones, a sitting wall and a historical marker.

Area residents like Bailey had long passed down the story of the soldiers who were gunned down by Confederate guerrillas as they herded cattle from Central Kentucky. The soldiers were then buried in a mass grave in what is now the United Brothers of Friendship Cemetery.

But it was only early this year that archaeologists confirmed the probable location of one, and possibly two, mass graves, said Jerry Miller, project manager for the Shelby County Historical Society.

The memorial is alongside U.S. 60, instead of up the hill in the cemetery itself, in part so it can be seen by passing motorists, he said.

Grants from the Louisville Civil War Round Table, Shelby County government, Kentucky African American Heritage Commission, and Kentucky Historical Society helped pay to investigate the solders' likely burial site and build the memorial.

Members of those groups spoke at Sunday's ceremony, and the 12th United States Colored Heavy Artillery re-enactment group and the Boy Scouts also took part.

"It is our belief that this story deserves to be told, and that their sacrifice . should be remembered," said Art Boerner, president of the Louisville Civil War Round Table. "We are standing on hallowed ground."

The slain soldiers were members of the Fifth U.S. Colored Cavalry, formed after President Abraham Lincoln issued an order in 1864 allowing enlistment of slaves in border states.

John Graham of the Shelby County Historical Society read from battlefield reports and newspaper articles about the exploits of the black soldiers, as well as an account of the Simpsonville killings that blamed the soldiers' white commanders for not being present.

During an October 1864 attack by 400 black soldiers on a salt works in western Virginia, "the Negroes rushed upon the works with a yell, killing and wounding a large number of the enemy," Graham read from a commanding officer's report.

"The men could not have behaved more bravely," the officer wrote. "I have seen white troops fight in 27 battles, and I have never seen any fight better."

"Kentucky sent 24,000 African Americans to fight in the Civil War. Only Louisiana sent more," said J. Blaine Hudson, chairman of the Kentucky African American Heritage Commission and arts and sciences dean at the University of Louisville.

He said some were present at Appomattox, when General Robert E. Lee surrendered to the Union's Ulysses S. Grant.

"We do stand in the midst of a piece of Kentucky's history," Hudson said.

According to Cave Hill's database, Elijah Bayse is not buried there. The only Bayse is a Myrtle Bayse.

RE: Re: John McGuire
Thank you so much! I'm going to visit a relative in August who knows some war stories about Him and his brother Joseph (my g-g-grandfather). So far he's told me they never stopped fighting the war the rest of their lives! Every time they were together it would end in a fist fight. Joe was a confederate. Feelings ran deep for a long time.

Civil War Soldiers
Just recently family members of Jacob Heilman placed a civil war military marker for him. He is buried in the Eminence Cemetery in Henry County, Kentucky. His brother, John Heilman, is also buried in Henry County at Lockport. We show the cemetery listed as the Heilman Cemetery. They came to the United States about 1850 with their Mother and we believe their step-father. We have not been able to find when they came across the ocean. They both enlisted in Oct. 19, 1861 even though Jacob was only 17. John lost his leg in a battle in Georgia. He died in 1879 when he drowned in the Kentucky River at Lockport. It is said he tried to swim the river with one leg or that it was actually suicide. I would be very interested if you have any information on either of them. Jacob is my husband's great-grandfather. My Mother-in-law, still living, is Jacob's grand daughter.
