RE: James Tackett
I sure wish I did. In fact I am wondering what your source is for James Tackett dying in Poinsett Co, Arkansas? I have found the index for Lucinda but not James.

RE: James Tackett
I don't have any of James Tackett and only one of Lucinda. Are you related to them?

The flat stones are a challenge. I added a note in the photo caption that I did NOT use chalk or anything other than WATER to get the contrast!

Used half the water I carried today scrubbing blue chalk off another nearby marker--many think it will just "wash off in the first rain," but it doesn't. Thinking dark thoughts about that member.

Hi Chris,
I'm pretty sure the I acquired the info from a Mt Hope cemetery transcription I copied from the Independence library. I used this info to help figure out the hard to read stones. The transcription was not a complete one.

I honestly do not know if he has a stone there. Mt Hope is a huge cemetery and I've photographed most of it and I'm sure I've missed many burials. The obit I got from my subscription to Newspaper.com.

Sorry I was not much help.

RE: Thornton Bowman
My pleasure Chris. I was out today getting some information on a Civil War Project I am working on in that Cemetery, and saw your request and he happened to be one of the of the Vets on my list to get a picture of the stone for anyways, So it was meant to be I suppose.

The stone is broken at the base level and laid face up so that it can still be read, and it is in the correct spot where it should be.

I am glad I could help.

Yes, his obituary was recently added. Are you related to him? If so, I'd be happy to transfer his memorial to you.

RE: Asher
They have the numbers on all the head stones, I guess so that they know which one are identified or not. I try to personalize the unidentified in some way.

RE: Allen Asher
According to the cemeteries database, his grave is unknown. They said he shows up as being buried there, but about 1/3 of the soldiers buried there are unidentified. So I took a picture of unknown marker and the block shaped one is the one I was trying to make central point of the picture.

Off the top of my head I don't believe any of my ancestors were in that regiment. If you are not in this area and ever need me to look something up at the library just let me know.

Chris,

The civil war markers on the following URL pertain to the Battle of Peachtree Creek: http://www.civilwarmarkers.com/Civil%20War/Fulton/fultonpg2a.htm

The area is well developed today, and if you go to the following Google Maps link, you can see a satellite view of the area.

https://www.google.com/maps/@33.8130326,-84.3997599,2287m/data=!3m1!1e3


Other URLs that may be of interest to you:

http://www.civilwartraveler.com/WEST/GA/atlanta-battlefields.html
http://roadsidegeorgia.com/tours/peachtreecreek.html

Roadside Georgia's website states: "... the Civil War Sites Advisory Commission Report to Congress in 1993, Peachtree Creek, Atlanta, Ezra Church and Jonesboro battlefields are under the status "Too late to save," in spite of the fact that they are ranked as either decisive or major battles."


We have a couple of battlefields in the northwest metro area - Kennesaw Mountain (national park) and Pickett's Mill (state historic site). Kennesaw Mountain is a few miles from the Marietta National Cemetery and visible from the cemetery when looking west.

http://www.nps.gov/kemo/learn/historyculture/the-atlanta-campaign.htm
http://gastateparks.org/PickettsMillBattlefield - there is an interesting video on this website

From the GA State Park's website: "Pickett’s Mill is one of the best preserved Civil War battlefields in the nation. Visitors can travel roads used by Federal and Confederate troops, see earthworks constructed by these men, and walk through the same ravine where hundreds died. An authentic 1800s pioneer cabin is furnished and open for tours during certain events."

I hope this information helps you. Good luck with your research!

RE: Irwin Dowler
I actually looked him up on ancestry. I sent a edit to have info entered in his bio. It wasn't much, his date of enlistment, unit and that he'd been buried on Jackson Farm in London, KY prior to his transfer to Camp Nelson. You should send that to be added also, or I can do it for you. It's great information.

RE: John Zimmerman photo request
I found it and we are fortunate that it is somewhat readable. Most are not I found in this cemetery. Chicago pollution must take a toll. The stone faces east and I had afternoon cloudiness. I may be able to get a better photo some sunny morning. I am out there frequently. His family may well be buried with him, but his is the only marker it appears. There are markers to the north, possibly related, by they only say Father, Mother, and Brother - not much info. The cemetery would provide information on family in his lot, I think. Bob

John Zimmerman photo request
In the process of loading a photo which had no headstone for John, I realized there are two lot 190s in Section G. The cemetery has done many resubdivisions and created duplicate numbers which are usually designated as "resub". Anyway, I will go back and look in the resub lot 190 for a heaadstone. Sorry for the oops on my part. Bob Lerch

In the cemeteries around here, they place a headstone in the family plot, but depict where the final resting place actually is...There are a lot from WWII. ~Jan

Hi Chris,
I have just updated all the Haughns I had entered on Find a Grave with information from Alberta Genealogical Society Cemetery Database. I will still try to get better photos for you next time I am down that way
