RE: Loudoun Rangers
Thank You, My wife and I look forward to hearing from you. I still find this pocket of union supporters a curiosity. But I remember hearing about an area in one of the Carolina's which also held a substantial presence of Union supporters. We appreciate your efforts as a trustee of this cemetery too.

Loudoun Rangers
Thank you for your work on the Loudoun Rangers. I am researching my wife's Harrison family, and just discovered the Find A Grave memorial for James William Harrison. What an interesting situation for these families to fight for the Union cause! My wife descends from a brother of this James W Harrison, named Lewis Cornelius Harrison. I just discovered that Lewis also provided a brief service for the Union cause, enlisting in Maryland, 3 April 1865 @ age 20. I have to wonder if another Loudoun Ranger, Thomas W Harrison is a near relative of these brothers. The photo/sketch which Jen Snoots provided of James William Harrison has the appearance of a possible Mulatto ancestry. My wife is waiting for her DNA results. It may suggest some more idea of the racial sentiments of this Harrison family. There is some suggestion that these Harrison's have a connection to the 2 US presidents.

RE: Capt Simon Elliott Chamberlin
This article in The Washington Post mentions a descendant, who is also a historian. You might be able to track him down by contacting the reporter who wrote both stories.

The date of birth you submitted: May 8 1834 has been changed from May to June.

Two sources have June as the month of birth:

THE CHAMBERLAIN ASSOCIATION OF AMERICA REPORT OF ANNUAL MEETINGS HELD IN BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS, IN 1908, 1909 AND 1910 WITH MEMORIAL SKETCHES OF MEMBERS OF THE ASSOCIATION

and Captain Chamberlin's obituary in The Evening Star Tuesday, April 21, 1908.

RE: Spannaus photos
There are a couple of photo volunteers that are trying to photograph all of the known sites for Woodland Cemetery. We are currently at 47% covered. Photographing the mausoleum was part of that effort.

Glad you are pleased with the results.

RE: Rev. F.A. Patterson
Just a note. The date for Reverand Patterson's death is the same as your Patterson. I have documented that date from the marker and the photo. I So the date is correct. However, I did not personally document his military service. So, I would definitely follow up with the Historical Society of Carroll County GA.

This is documented as described in the memorial.
They may be related but are not the same person.

The above is link to the West Georgia Regional Library.

If you click on the Pines Catatog and request Known Confederate Burials Carroll County, the location in special collections wil be given. The historical society has someone in the Special Collection's Room during the week. They may be able to research your name for you.

It most likely is a relative. The Concord Methodist is down the street from me. I can assure you from my personal survey all marked graves have been entered into Find A Grave. The Carroll County Cemetery Volumes have also surveyed the area every few years since the 1980's. There is no other Patterson with exact initial's.

Hi Edward, You're terrific! Would you contact carlavh@verizon.net and let her know what you found? I'm sure you can transfer the pix to her w/out going thru me. Thanks again, MariaElena

RE: Lovettsville Old Presbyterian
Hi Edward,

All help is greatly appreciated. The request I rec'd indicated he was buried behind the Primitive Baptist Church on So.Church, but there are only 10-11(?)extant stones there with no inscriptions. It does look like it's been leveled at sometime. I called the number on the front of the church and rec'd a call from a woman who said there are no extant burial records and what is in the back is all that remains. So maybe Johnson was buried in the old part of the Presbyterian Church, and the request has the wrong location. Stranger things have happened. Best wishes,

Maria Raymond
