Double Names
Find A Grave states that it should be the last name entered upon the headstone. In order to see the headstone, a visit to the cemetery might be necessary!!!!

Oh, and Cullum rarely lists graduates by their full names, although you saw that here as in most of the others, by Supplement V or VI the full name gets put in the article. It was a space constraint for him, in the title of the entry and in the indexes. I've respected the editorial choice but if the Register doesn't include it itself at some point, I usually make an effort to insert it myself.

Fr. Matthew O'Keefe
Thank you for this introduction to a good man! If a person is a hero, he is not minor in my book. (I imagine you poked around on my site and found the biography of Servant of God Fr. Kapaun, CMOH, among either my Catholic History or my Military History stuff.)

At any rate, I'm surprised that Wickedpedia — which has an article on every Pokemon card put out by humankind — doesn't have an article on him. His connection alone, not accidental, with Mahone, Jefferson Davis during the latter's captivity, and Cardinal Gibbons ought to make him what the good folk at WP call "notable". I stay away from WP like the plague, though, so I'm not going to do it.

You also have me, so far unsuccessfully, hunting for a biography of Fr. O'Keefe that (a) might not be on line, but (b) be in the public domain: he's exactly the kind of American historical figure I like most and am most interested in. If you have a good reference, I mean other than the occasional article here and there, like under his church or the article at Perseus, and other than the book he wrote (which is online at GoogleBooks, and falls under religion rather than history) do lemme know!

▸ I notified Col. Glasgow's memorial keeper, Julia Cruz, as you suggested. It will probably be a long time, though, before I put his entry on my site.

Cullum is sort of indigestible, isn't he? Or at least most of the time, like here…

Thanks for the mention; as a help to your readers, you might want to mark it as being Cullum's Register: military types (and I know it must seem weird, but I'm not one of them!) would be looking for that as an authoritative source for USMA grads.


Best,
Bill

— and that transcription turned out easier than I thought; Page now up at aforesaid URL, or short form, http://bit.ly/Cullum3414. Hope it's useful.

Caught a typo in your Find-a‑Grave page, faithfully reproduced from typo at WPAOG (which is often abysmally proofread: or rather scanned and not proofread at all). savior ▸ savoir, of course.

Gen. Glasgow by the way was the father of William Jefferson Glasgow, Jr., also a West Pointer, Class of 1927, Cullum No. 8150, who died in Japan during the American occupation, Nov. 14, 1947.

Ah, *William* Jefferson Glasgow — he's Cullum 3414, Class of 1891. Wasn't on my To‑Do list (just over my target zone, and not mentioned elsewhere on my site), but I'm putting him on it now, and will get back to you when I get his entries up.

Thanks for the heads‑up on Col. Kennedy —

What I'm doing is, in many cases where needed, providing added information to Find-a‑Grave by referencing the entries in Cullum's Register, which I've been putting online at http://bit.ly/Cullum0. About 2800 of them are up now, and some of the AOG obituaries etc. In the process, I tag those Find-a‑Grave pages that are essentially contentless (e.g., 41695847 Martin Hughes) so that others can find the biographical material.

I'm working my way thru Cullum in something like chronological order, certainly thru the end of the Class of 1890 (Cullum #3384); and sometimes beyond, as needed usually for the purposes of my own site, a large site on American history. Col. Kennedy is Cullum #9489, well past my target zone.

Cullum is online, thru the 1950 Supplement, at USMA in PDF form, although it's hard to find and in several dozen pieces unlinnked to each other. In unmassaged form, Supplements VIII (Col. Kennedy's graduation year) and IX (thru 1950) read as follows:

9489 DAVID HAMILTON KENNEDY (B. Sept. 2, 1909, S.C.; Ap'd S.C.) Class Rank 166

As for George Jefferson Glasgow, either he's not a West Point graduate, or he graduated after 1950; I'm sorry I don't have any information …

RE: Levi Jones
Unfortunately, we're still not sure any details of his service. My grandfather tried to find any records he could and finally gave up sometime in the 60's. I tried on and off for awhile and finally decided that maybe he actually hadn't served but, last year a distant cousin found a typed copy of a letter that he'd written to his parents in October of 1964 while he was apparently a guard at "Camp State Prison" near Columbia. So while I do believe again that he did serve, no one has been able to find any actual records with details.

Anna, if Terry is going to return it that's fine. He can do what he want with the write up. I trust you that it will be returned. If you know him and the memorial means that much to him tell him he can keep it. I mean that in the nicest way!

Hello, I saw where you had sent in edits for memorials managed by Nancie Dubard in the past. Sadly, she passed away in May. If you would like management of any of her memorials please send an edit requesting the transfer and I will be happy to transfer them. Her husband is allowing me to transfer her memorials to me and others who are willing to manage them. I have changed the email on Nancie's page so edits will come to me instead of her email. Her husband says he is not very computer savvy and did not know what to do with the info on F A G.


Thank you,

RE: Bamberg Cemetery surveys
Anna, my daughter and I did a cemetery list several years ago for South End and Denmark Cemetery in Bamberg County. I uploaded them to the Bamberg County Cemetery web page. This was before Find A Grave came along. However, my lists have been used to place names on Find A Grave. There may be some typo's..........I did my best to correctly put the dates in when I was typing. Thank You!
