RE: Phillip Greenwall
BTW, I'm back to believing that the Library of Congress photos indexed as Morris Greenwall are probably him. My alternate ID, Lt. R.W. Greenwell of Baton Rouge was 43 years old but only 5 feet 7. When enlarged, Morris doesn't look all that old, and he also looks closer to six feet. There are two pics of Henry that strongly resemble Morris, but Phil not so much.

RE: Morris Greenwall
Good luck with it. It would be great to have his obit and know where he was buried.

RE: morris greenwall
That would be great to have his obit. I've looked at all 3 of the brothers's service records on Fold3. Morris was listed as AWOL from the Louisiana Zouave Bttn in July 1864. In April 1864, two conscription officers in Texas were looking out for him, with orders to check up on his status for possible conscription. One wrote to the other that Greenwall's service as a detective for the Bureau of Conscription ended in January 1864. Meanwhile, Morris made two trips to New York by boat and even applied for a passport in Oct 1864. I suspect he was on secret missions.

RE: Phillip Greenwall
Thanks for your reply, Hollace. I had read the book quotes from Handbook of Texas Online. I guess there's no record of where Morris might be buried. I no longer believe the photo is Morris because of the apparent age difference. I've posted a lot about Morris here

Phillip Greenwall
Re Phillip Greenwall (# 12385948), does the Dallas Newspaper article mention his brother Morris? Morris was a secret special detective for the Confederate States and was photographed by Matthew Brady at the end of the war. He later moved to Melbourne, Australia, then died in San Francisco in 1885. He had come back to the US to sue actress Lily Langtree for breach of contract.

RE: Emanuel Hebrew Rest

I completed that cemetery back in 2008. You can find it on Find A Grave under the name, Hebrew Rest. I believe everyone is listed that had a headstone prior to 2009. I am working on having a few duplicates removed and adding information in my spare time.

Please feel free to forward any information and I will be happy to add the updates.
