The children are correct.

Find A Grave Memorial# 37381593

Note 1: Anthony L and Benita Burge: Descendants of: Christopher and Telitha Stockstill BURGE " published by Anthony Burge , 2004 Anthony's spiral-bound genealogy book. It is an exhaustively researched account of this Burge line who settled in Louisiana after coming from Mississippi circa 1840's. The first 109 pages are Dedicated to the history of Christopher and Telitha, and their down-line, with insightful stories, documents, and photographs. Then there are 311 pages outlining their many, many Descendants (way-to-go Alonzo!). I just want to verify that Anthony's conclusion of many years of research are to be congratulated. An excellent reference, and a cherished family keepsake, this book has it all. Currently available for $35.00, and a research CD for $30.00

Singer, LA 70660

Joshua (John Nathaniel "Joshua" Burge) is said to have lost his life serving with the CSA at The Battle of Pleasant Hill in Louisiana during the Civil Wary. When a group of men came down the road near his house, he stopped them and asked where they were going. They told him they were going to run the Yanks out of Louisiana and asked him to come along. He agree to go and went into the house to get his gun. His wife Elizabeth McCorguodale Burge asked what he was doing and he told her that he was off to war. Most likely,, these men were part of the Second Texas Infantry. The wee going to join other forces to drive the Federals out of Louisiana.

He never returned home from the Civil War as he died at The Battle of Pleasant Hill was fought on April 9, 1864. 1,600 Confederates and 1,300 Federals died that day. The Federals lost the Battle of Mansfield but won the he Battle of Pleasant Hill. In the long run, however, the Confederates won as history indicates.

During the burial of the dead, a Federal soldier found a Masonic pin on Joshua and took personal belongings from his body. He kept the belongs thru the rest of the war and returned them all to Elizabeth after the war.

This maybe incorrect.

I am studying the following

He never returned home from the Civil War as he died at : The Battle of Pleasant Hill was fought on April 9, 1864, during the Red River Campaign of the American Civil War, near Pleasant Hill, Louisiana, between Union forces led by Maj. Gen. Nathaniel P. Banks and Confederate forces, led by Maj. Gen. Richard Taylor.

I think that based upon this well researched book he may have been John Nathaniel "Joshua" Burge son of Christopher C. "Kit" Burge and
Elizabeth Talitha Stockstill

as soon as I dig further I will get back to you

Annie Hollingsworth McDonald
Greetings:

I am so glad I stumbled across your posting. Your Annie was the d/o Mary Catherine Marsh and William James Hollingsworth. I believe Wm James Hollingsworth was born in the Gray's Creek Township of Cumberland County, NC. I know for a fact Mary Catherine Marsh was born unto Azor (Asa) and Elizabeth M. (Betsy) Marsh in the Gray's Creek Township of Cumberland County, NC.

If you enjoy family research. Your William James Hollingsworth MOST LIKELY descended from Valentine and Anne C. Hollingsworth of Welch Tract, DE. Valentine & Anne were the immigrants.
John Hollingsworth - of Valentine m. Catherine Tyler. Both left Quaker Faith and took Baptist Oath abt 1711.

Rev. Stephen Hollingsworth - distinguished NC Baptist Minister(of John, of Valentine) was among first patents (1735)of what is now Cedar Creek, Cumberland, NC. (east side of Cape Fear River) Catherine Tyler Hollingsworth Edwards died 1755 there.
Another patent on the west bank of the Cape Fear River was awarded to a Hollingsworth. I haven't gotten to the research of to whom this belonged.
You can google Valentine Hollingsworth for a wealth of information.
Hopefully, this will help you. Blessings. Cathrine

Julius & Julian Thompson family graves
Hello, Thank you for looking for the graves of my family. I have talked to Julian & his wife Agnes' daughter who is still living and she said that her father has a stone and is buried there, (maybe she is talking about the large Thompson stone? and she told me that her mother Agnes, and her brother Julian(who just passed away this past year) do not have markers. Could you please take photo's of the Thompson Marker and lot for me please? Maybe there are names on the large marker engraved in? Thanks for your help!

RE: Smith Cemetery

No, I know nothing of the area, but there is a person in my family tree that's supposed to be buried in a Cemetery of a similar name, so I was trying to determine whether this is the correct Cemetery. Thanks for responding. :-)

Hi there ::waving:: I see you've established a Smith Cemetery in Columbus County, North Carolina. I'd like to ask whether this location is classified as being located in Bug Hill Township? Any info you have is appreciated.
