I deleted the wrong photo. Sorry for the error. I do not keep photos once I do a cemetery so I have none to add to James Miswick. Judy

Charles Wozniak #26210860
We meet again. Could you please link Charles to my great-grandparents Marion Wozniak #84770451 and Antonia Rose Filipiak Wozniak. He is their son, my great-uncle. He was known to me as Uncle Charlie and of course, Aunt Florence. Uncle Charlie worked at the GM Plant in Flint for many years. They had a cottage on the shore of Lake Huron. My family and I visited there in the summer of 1964. They were sweet wonderful people. The last time I saw them was in April of 1973 when my grandpa Stan passed on. Thank you for your time and consideration.

I don't think there were any women in that cemetery, at least none with markers.

RE: Nine Parnters Cemetery
I haven't found Barbara's stone yet, and won't be going back to Nine Partners until the spring. There's a whole part of the newer section of the cemetery I haven't photographed yet. If you remember, look at Nine Partners again in the late spring of 2013 and see if I found her or not.

Holy Cross Cemetery
Hello Amber,

I don't have a vehicle so I don't go to Holy Cross very often as it is on the other side of town. Additionally, I will be moving out of Grand Rapids at the end of the month. Sorry that I can't oblige you, as I love taking photos for 'Find A Grave'.

Best Regards,

Mike Cronk

RE: Botwinski Family
You are welcome. And yes, there are two more graves with her - her husband, Joseph and an infant, John. I searched Find A Grave and since they were not listed, I created a memorial page for them and uploaded photos. If you go to Shirley's memorial, there will be links to the new ones.

Reuben Smiddy
Reuben Smiddy was an orginal member of Company B of the First Tennessee Infantry-the first federal unit formed in Tennessee. An observance will be held at 6:00PM on Monday August 1, 2011 to honor these brave men.



It should come as little surprise to those who are familiar with the history of our area that the first federal units in Tennessee (for the American Civil War) were formed in Campbell County. Campbell County is the Volunteer County of the Volunteer State.



East Tennesseans have always been fiercely patriotic having descended from hearty frontiersmen who had dared to cross the mountains from North Carolina in to what is now East Tennessee before the American Revolution. Here they established the first completely free and independent government in the New World, known as the Watauga Association, in 1772-four years before the signing of the Declaration of Independence. They crossed back over the mountains under the leadership of John Sevier and played a pivotal role in securing American's independence at the Battle of King's Mountain.



Talk of succession in Nashville, resulted in Union Meetings that were held all over East Tennessee and two conventions-one before and one after Tennessee seceded from the Union. Word was sent to Nashville from the second convention, that East Tennesseans desired to succeed from the State of Tennessee. Governor Isham Harris responded by sending General Zollicoffer to occupy East Tennessee.



Resistance quickly turned to action in early August in that the first federal units in Tennessee were quickly formed within little more than a week. All were a part of the First Tennessee Infantry.



The first unit, Company B, was formed at Jacksboro on August 1, 1861. The second unit, Company A, was formed at Jacksboro the next day. The next week more units were formed at Clinton, Maynardville, Tazewell, and Kingston.



Campbell Countians no doubt played a pivotal role in preserving the union. Strategically situated, Powell Valley was a major supply route vital to the military success of the Confederacy. The combination of a hostile population and federal units composed of exiled union sympathizers was a constant disruption to communication and the transportation of supplies for the Confederacy.



Company B was in North Georgia involved in the campaign for Atlanta on August 10, 1864 when Major General John McAllister Schofield of The Army of the Ohio issued the following order: "The term of service of the 1st Regiment East Tennessee Infantry having nearly expired, the regiment will be relieved from duty with the army in the field on the 11th inst. (instant)., will move by rail, if practicable, to Knoxville, Tennessee, and will there be mustered out of service. This gallant regiment, first among the patriotic men from East Tennessee to take up arms in defense of the Union, has gained an enviable reputation by its three years of faithful, and efficient service, and, especially during the present campaign, has won, together with its comrades of the XXIII Corps, enduring fame. To Colonel Byrd, and the officers and men of his regiment, I tender a soldier's appreciation and regard for soldierly fidelity and gallantry, and bid them farewell, with the hope that they may soon find in their homes in Tennessee the peace and prosperity for which they have fought so long and so well."



Our ancestors stood strong for the Union. One hundred fifty years later it is our time to stand strong for them. A sesquicentennial observance to honor the original members of Company B will be held on the courthouse lawn at Jacksboro at 6:00PM on Monday August 1, 2011. Descendants and other relatives will have the opportunity to answer roll call and sign in for their soldier. For more information, please contact Joe Stephens at the Campbell County Historical Society in LaFollette at (423) 566-3581 or JoeStephens10@hotmail.com.

I should have added that this is on the back of all the military headstones. At Knoxville National I have also included the row number in the caption for the photo.

RE: Orlena
Hi,I hope you are feeling better.We had it too.
I went to the cemetery but the only one I could find is John F. A lot of the old stones were replaced with new ones and some were just gone.I was shocked at how many were gone! I was there several years ago and took photos of all the old ones and will go through them.I'll go back and look again too when the weather warms up,we just go a few inches of snow.
