RE: James W. Tandy, Co. A, 86th Illinois
I'm not an expert by any means when it comes to researching military. But my first question is have you contacted Zachery Taylor National Cemetery here in Louisville...502-893-3852 They are the ones that have the records for soldiers buried in Cave Hill. Cave Hill maintains the grounds but Z.T. manages it. CH was asked to donate burial space during the war...more than once I've been told.

If I can clear some time I'd be glad to check the library's newspaper records. Did he die here in Louisville? Any additional info I might need to know?

And when it comes to Fold 3 I have found very little on my own family.

RE: Barrick Family in Springdale
You're welcome, always glad to help you out.
Had a little trouble locating John & Katherine, after following the map it led me to George W. Barrick 1849-1931, & Emarine V. 1850-1928. Might try to take a run out there & give it another look.
Could these two be family?

Photo Request
It seems Jack ended up being buried with his dad as per Springdale. Here is part of the email:
Jack Barrick (1917 DOD 11/28/1917) He was only 10 days old when he died. When he died, he was buried in North Hill, Section 3, Lot 1349.
When John M. Barrick, Jr., died (DOD 4/19/1930) He was 40 yrs., 8 mo., & 27 days old. He was buried in Hillcrest, Section E, Lot 4851, Grave 1. (At this time, Jack Barrick (DOD 1917) was moved from the North Hill location to be in the same grave as John M. Barrick, Jr

RE: Benda Hindbaugh, Elmwood Cemetery
I added a photo today, about where I think Section F Plot 71 is located. I used a small shepherd hook with a yellow butterfly attached, I borrowed it from another gave,(which I put back after I took the photo) In this section of F there are a lot of single burials and unmarked graves..
I saw the newspaper clipping you added, at least there is something to show she lived, even if she doesn't have a marker...

RE: Kate Poppen & Helena Barrick
Hello Baxter,
It's been too long since I last had contact with you, hope all is well.
The rest of the "Poppen" requests are inside the mausoleum so I will get them in the A.M.

Take care,

Thanks Baxter, Wow, nothing short of a miracle. Thanks for sharing this fascinating story. All is well, Mom and I just read "Killer Angels" about the Battle of Gettysburg. Mom would like nothing better than to be able to give Robert E. Lee a piece of her mind!
Thanks again!

RE: William Swanderman, Co. H, 77th Illinois
Hi, I got your message. Thanks for the kind words!

I do live a few blocks from where William rests. I'm going back to get a better picture as soon as I can. I'll keep my eyes open for an obit, and check some sources around here.

I enjoy history, just never enough time to do all I want to do! Thanks again! Pam

Hi Baxter,
I found you as a reference on One Foot in the Grave page for memorial #40029406 George James Wilkinson. I believe he was Capt Co B 103rd Illinois rather than what is on the memorial. Also, according to records he died Sept 23 rather than Sept 28. Thanks for any help.

W. Parker
Have transfered to you to maintained. I know no more than you, about him. I lived in a comunity next to Parker Florida, growing up. Had heard of the Parkers, along with the Martin Family. Well known families. The reason we list is a hobby so others may find. It makes our day when we get an email saying we have done what we set out to do.

Hi Baxter! Great hearing from you :) I am so glad Capt. Burkhalter was found! The City of Galesburg does a horrible job with their record keeping on their cemeteries. I hope this finds you & yours doing well.
Take care :)

RE: Private William Mills Organ, Co. E, 86th Illinois
Baxter, unfortunately I live in Wisconsin and was visiting Wheatland for research on my family. I doubt I'll be returning.

I read every marker and didn't find any for Organ. There were several that were illegible (including 2 for my ancestors)and at least one where it appeared that a stone had once sat. There were some broken pieces in a corner of the cemetery which I did not investigate (it was very cold and windy the day I was there).

RE: Richard and Terreca Scanlon
Hi Baxter,

I have run into road blocks for both of my G-G-Grandmothers husbands. Flemming may have been in the soldier and sailors home in Quincy, Il for a time. No record of his burial was found there though. He did live into the 1900's. I know his great-grand-daughter and she has told me this, but she never knew him or what happened to him. His daughter didn't want anything to do with him, because of his drinking.
Welch died around 1895. He mustered out as Sergeant in Selma,AL in 1866. When he married my G-G-Grandmother he was a constable for the Peoria, Il Police ( in 1880). By this time they had both been married 2 times each. He may be with one of his other families. I am working on this angle.

In any of your research have you found a John Scanlon (Scantlin or possibly Scanlan) who may have been in the Civil War from the Peoria area and may have died or killed in 1864/65? This is someone I cannot find.
