USA Vets.
81 graves have been detected at the Camp Jefferson Davis site. Using a 1893 map, GPS and Divining rods they were located. 113 unmarked graves about 3000 west were detected but most are believed to be Union and Confederate Vets. I also worked with the Jackson County Genealogy Society in exhuming and reburial of six 1848 USA officers from Greenwood Island. In 1848 we had three camps in Jackson County, Jefferson Davis, Lawson and Corrine (Dragoons).

George W Croshaw
His wife Betsy Thurston Croshaw is also on the headstone. Can you transfer to me for a time so that I can update them both - they are Mayflower descendants and I would like to link the other family memorials and names. If, that does not happen then I have to create a duplicate and I would prefer not to do that. Thank you.

RE: Mexican War Veterans
Happy to! If there are any others please let me know. I think the remaining guys in Mexico City are Civil War vets, but some may have served MW as well.

W.A. Miles-Gum Springs Cem
Why is it necessary to have 3 memorials on the same person in the same cemetery? And why do you have 2 different DMWV accounts to effect the same purpose? I was about to submit a bio/obit on Mr. Miles, but held back when I saw 3 mems on him. You made a duplicate to say he was in the Mex War, and you made a duplicate to say he was in the Civil War and this on top of the original you already had. Anything said about this man can be said on ONE memorial.

Please...Please read the FAQs (to the left) under "Help with Find A Grave" and delete two of the mems on him! And you should combine your DMWV accounts as well. My Goodness, I am so confused!

Added by Elaine on Jan 06, 2013 9:34 PM

From the amount of duplicates you have created, it doesn't appear you understand the purpose of Find A Grave. Reading the FAQs (site policies) is highly recommended. Site admin AJ once made this statement:
"The FAQs *absolutely* detail site policy and all members are expected to follow them and abide by them."
Duplicates are simply not allowed and you should delete all that you have created else your account be in jeopardy.

Mexican War Vets in SE NM

The only information I have concerning the following Mexican War veterans is what is given on their headstones or which may appear on FindaGrave. I thought you might like to add them to your virtual cemetery.

Hello there,

We added a photo of Pvt J F Branch today. Is this your family? Or is this a project? I NEVER walk past a Vet without taking a photo, just to be sure one is posted of them:)
