Thank you for the update. I always thougth it was interesting to have such a nice memorial to the Civil War soldiers but rather unexpected to find it was a Confederate one in Washington state.

Best of luck with your research.

Dr. Beverly Patrick Reese
Dr. Hambrecht, As part of the White Oak UMC Heritage Committee, I have been researching Dr. Beverly Patrick Reese and his connection to White Oak and the Confederate hospital that was active on the grounds. As you may know, the church and hospital wards were burned in June 1864 by Union forces as part of the Wilson-Kautz raid. On the 21st of next month we will be hosting an event to serve as a commemoration of the church's history as it pertains to the Civil War in Virginia, and a memorial dedication to the unknown soldiers buried within the churchyard.

History of the church, and it's service alongside the hospital, is hard to come by. Any additional information you can provide, either pertaining to Dr. Reese or the church and hospital, would be greatly appreciated.

Jeff Lovelace
King Family of Washington, DC
Can you help me locate a husband and wife that passed away in DC? It seems that DC has that 50 year rule about obtaining a copy of a Death Certificate, which is keeping me from finding their burial location. Could you access the Obits in the Library?
Please help me if you can.

I added two photos to your memorial 101212460 for Edward Armistead Semple. I would also like to refer you to memorial 65271916 for Paul Cornelius Lee who was also a CSA surgeon, in case you don't have him in your database.

Dr. Edward Jones Mims 57724849
Hello and thank you so much for your kind suggestion.

I am not sure exactly what you expected me to add to the memorial, so I added the first sentence. If this is not what you had in mind, please, let me know.

I am afraid to give credit for info on Find A Grave because one panicked FAGer told me it causes her problems when someone shares a memorial on Facebook. Her name appears a certain way that distresses her.

I am printing your suggestion to add to my Mims family info.

Bless you for all you do and Happy St. Patrick's Day.

Neil Smith
Bio for Dr. Edward Smith
Thought you might add this to his Franklin Cemetery Find A Grave entry.

"Edward Smith (1796-1874) - a physician and legislator in Brooke Co. - born on family farm which his father had carved out of the forest. He had a limited elementary education but read widely and studied medicine in Baltimore. Afterwards he continued to reside on the farm and practice in the rural districts. Later he moved to Wellsburg and still later to West Liberty, where he stayed until his death. He was a member of the Virginia Legislature at the time of the Succession of that state from the Union. Afterwards he became a prominent Republican and leader in the new state of W.Va. He served in the West Virginia House of Delegates in 1867. He married Catherine James in 1820 and had several children, one of whom became a college president of Ohio."

Mr. Hambrecht, thank you for your interest in Dr. Palmer. He was a direct ancestor of mine and I do not wish to transfer him at this time. However, I will be glad to add any information you would like to his memorial.

Dr. Edward Smith
When I posted the photo of Dr. Edward Smith, I did not realize you had a photo request for his tombstone, if there is one. I live in MO so I can't readily visit the cemetery. However, my children both live in the DC area and we visit quite often. I could swing by Brooke county the next time I go and see if I can find the tombstone.

Why don't you request the photo again and I can use that to remind me. By the way, I'm planning a trip to Shiloh Military Park this April 6 so if you need anything from there, let me know.

Since you have "national" connections, maybe you can help me. When I first visited the Mormon library in Salt Lake City, I found an item that said some governament agency (probably NARA) wanted to make copies of CW soldier's photographs. If we would send them the original, they would make a high quality scan and return the original. I can not find the address in my notes.

I have a relative that was killed at Shiloh, and another in his unit that was killed around Atlanta. We have tintypes of both of them in uniform and would like to send them for copying.

Do you know where this agency might be? Thx, Neil

Dr. Leroy L. Harcum
Thanks for the information regarding Civil War surgeon Leroy L. Harcum. I have found very little about him in the "Compiled Service Records." Could you share your sources? His name is engraved on the Confederate Monument in Heathsville, Virginia. I am researching the names on that monument and would greatly appreciate any help you can provide.

Dr. Joseph Summerell
I am so very sorry it has taken me so long to respond to the SAC you sent me. For some reason it only appeared in my email today. I am not sure what's happening there, but it seems to be happening frequently with messages from Find A Grave. I double checked my email settings, and everything from this site is set to go straight to my inbox, so I am not sure why it's not happening that way.

I corrected the death year on Dr. Summerell's memorial and have given the management of it to you. I can't wait to see the information you have to add. Please let me know if there are any other memorials you would like to have transferred. I know I have at least one other Civil War physician in my local memorials; Dr. Josephus W. Hall (Memorial# 41500524). I have a good bit of info on his memorial, but if there is anything you can add, I would be happy to either include it, or transfer it over to your care as well.

Just let me know if there is anything further that I can do to help.

Have transferred this memorial to your care. This is a part of my wife's family (somewhat distant) and buried next to her family plot at Oak Plains Presbyterian Church Cemetery. Please let me know when you add material. I'm just interested to hear.
BTW, on stone middle name is spelled "Dickson". Don't know if engraver just ran out of room, or what.

I made the transfer of Dr. Joseph William Daniel over to you. I am sure that you are finding that Bernice is an outstanding help when it comes to seeking out Civil War veterans buried in the Glenwood or Washington Cemeteries in Houston, TX. Your work is certainly a labor of love and is very much appreciated.
