RE: Photo of Wm M Boughan on Ebay

Thanks so much for the heads up on the ebay item!

William Madison Boughan was my 1st Cousin 4 time removed. I too have copied the photo and other info. It finally sold for $90. I know of about a dozen descendants of William -- I do hope one of them got the item.

Thanks again for the info -- just too rich for my budget.

The title "Capt" was from his whaling days, not a military title.

RE: 16th Georgia
Do you have Eias Sanders Dyar's picture? It is on the Civil War talk site, "uniforms of the civil war. He was officer of the 16th, company C. I copied him off Internet, too. Bailey brothers and 3 Sanders brothers,( my 3x great uncles.) Wish I had a copy of Ira Jones Edwards as a solder in that group. I have one as an older man. "Little Grandpa," he was called, about 5'2""! Maybe repeating myself. Thank you for your time! Peggy.

Correction on my gg grandfathers name. had it wrong! I compared census records and matched him up. He's from the Cox-Hardigree family. Nova Lemmons has him in her book. It's a unusual name and a long one! I understand why he signed everything H.J.Cox :) Tania

Lt. H..J. Cox
I'm searching for photos now,I recieved information from the Southern Historical Society on my Facebook page,that he's in Civil War magazine issues. H.J. Cox was in many well known battles. (Including Gettysburg and Fredericksburg.) The 16th Georgia Regiment Co B of Jackson Co are looking into the matter of why H.J. Cox has no marker at House Cemetery in Barrow Co Ga where his wife is buried. She has a marker. H.J.'S obit says hes buried at the House burying ground. I'll find photo's and more answers soon hopefully. Sincerely, Tania

RE: William Webster Vaughn #11371477
I have talked to my source in VA. He said hospital records say he died at hospital in Charlottesville and was buried at confederate cemetery there as was the practice at time. There is a plaque there w/ his name and date of death which is where he got info for memorial. Not likely that he was returned to battle site for burial. Is possible that there is a plague at Ettrell at site of battle memorializing those who died or subsequently died there w/o bodies actually being buried there. He is NOT familiarw/ Ettrell site BUT is very knowledgeable of confederate cemetery at University of VA, SO the one at Etrell must be a cenotaph since there are records of him at hospital. Other than that I do not know. Have never been there. In addition, there are none of the other names of Etrell list in article with him buried at U of VA which gives credence that he was sent to hospital and later died there.

RE: William Webster Vaughn #11371477
I have that he was wounded and taken to Chancellorsville Hospital where he later died and buried in University of VA confederate Cemetery. There is a memorial with his name on it there along with others in his company that had the same demise. I am having the records checked there to be sure. It is very possible that there is a marker at both places as a memorial for those who died as a result of battle. He would NOT have been taken back to battle site to be buried AFTER being taken to hospital. I'll let you know what I find out.

Picture you added
You put a nice picture on Pvt Thomas B. Hobbs's memorial that shows names of some soldiers buried in Washington Confederate Cemetery. Could you please put the same picture on the memorial I created for my relative, Pvt. Benjamin Mathews? He's also buried in the cemetery, and his name is in there. I'd appreciate it! Thanks.

Hello, indeed, his burial record is in the Diuguid Funeral Home's ledger as 1/28/1863. I posted a photo of his grave marker to your memorial if you would like to use it for your book, I would just ask to be given credit. If there are other gentlemen from the unit you are researching and I have posted photos, you are welcome to them as well.

Best regards,

RE: Redington photo
Thanks for the info, I'm about to punch through all of those links you sent. I'm also going to head down to Crampton's Gap very soon. Local guides are available? Have any recommendations on where to find one? Thanks again.
