Isaac Henry Sanders Info
Hello, on Isaac Henry Sanders memorial at

http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=13746621

You have him listed as a private but enlisted as a Capitan with Company D. 26 Alabama Infantry and stayed that rank throughout the war.

Here is a little more info on him for you to add.

Born April 7, 1823 in Bedford County, Tennessee and enlisted as Captain in September, 1861. He was 5 feet 10 inches tall. Wounded at Malvern Hill on July 1, 1862 and sent home on furlough. Resigned on August 11, 1862 due to personal problems and the injuries. Re-enlisted February 17, 1863 as private. Was elected 2nd Lt. Company F, 38th Alabama on August 1, 1863 so was granted discharge from 26th Alabama on August 8. When Captain Sydney Smith found out he was still a private in the 38th he requested Sanders back which was granted. Present at Andersonville. Wounded in action at Peachtree Creek, Georgia on July 20, 1864 and returned. Wounded in left upper thigh by grapeshot at battle of Franklin on November 30, 1864 and captured in Franklin Field Hospital on December 17, 1864. Admitted to U.S.A. Hospital in Nashville, Tennessee on December 23, 1864 and upon recovery sent to Camp chase on January 9, 1865. Eventually sent to at Point Lookout Prison where he was paroled on June 12, 1865 at age 42. Resided in Melbourne, Lamar County in 1907 Census and in Columbus, Mississippi in 1911.

East - Lowndes Co., MS
Hi,

I was wondering if you could tell me if you or the person who originally posted Memorial# 9904489 for James East in the Friendship Cemetery had added his dates etc. We are trying to determine if this is the right James or if it is his nephew instead... and the records seem to be few and far between... so any help would be most appreciated.

Thanks,

Patti Smith

I do not believe Thomas W Carter is buried at Friendship Cemetery in Columbus, MS. He is buried in Greenwood Cemetery in West Point, MS (#72243517). If you have information to support him being buried at Friendship, please share. Thank you.

Hiram Moore Tombstone
First let me begin by saying a big thank-you for taking the time to photograph and record the information on the tombstones in the cemeteries. It is such a help to those of us researching our families.

The Hiram Moore you have entered with no date of birth or date of death is also entered on Find-A-Grave Memorial Number 12915873. The stone you show is identical to the one in the above listed number. Apparently someone cleaned the stone after you photographed it and so they were able to read the dates.

Just thought you might want to know about this duplication.

Thanks again for your hard work.

I tried to add this portrait of the general to the memorial, but it was filled with photos of the grave and could not be added. If you would like to remove one of the photos of the grave and let me know, I will add the portrait of him. Or, if you sponsor the memorial, more pictures can be added, and I would add the portrait if you let me know. Thank you.
