|Mary (Rutherford) Johnston||RE: MICHAEL & MALINDA MORELOCK|
That would be extremely nice Mike if you could
send me a larger picture !!! I also appreciate
knowing where the Tennessee Virtual Archives is
located. You do have my email address, right ??
I was "very" moved yesterday to see this picture
and to also realize that Michael Morelock most
likely chose the Confederate side. My other
great-great grandfather, "Powell", in Greene Co.,
Tennessee was a Union Sgt. They were neighbors.
Mary Morelock married Samuel Powell in 1878, long
after the "war" (my great grandparents).
Thank you Mike. Mary

Yes, this is the 1st time that I have seen THIS
picture. I have a smaller version with them
both sitting down but believe my copy is from
a tin type which has smudges on Michael's face.
Your picture is much, much clearer. And I
certainly did NOT know that Michael worked at
Bumpass Cove, TN. (not sure where that is) nor what a Confederate Iron Works is ?? I thought
Michael was a farmer ??
I did click on the photo and saw a web site which
states: teva.contentdm......... Is this the
Tennessee Virtual Archive ??? I have NOT gone
to this site, yet.
I have a picture of who I believe is Nathan
Morelock 1805 - 1882 and his wife, Rachel 1805 -
1857 which is old - it appears that it has been
colored by crayon. The paper is a cream colored
somewhat heavier paper. It has been colored or
lightly painted. Nathan & Rachel would be
Michael's parents. It is really getting worn. NOT
Was this picture donated to the Tennessee Virtual
Archives. Is it ONLY on the internet or does
this Archives actually exist in TN?? Many
years ago I knew this lady who lived in Greene
Co., TN. She had many large "framed" pictures
of relatives but I never asked if I could make
or have a copy !! Sad.
I actually still have a "scarf" that belonged
to Malinda. It was given to my aunt (a child
at the time) when the family loaded up and moved
from Tennessee to Kansas !!
Thank you Mike. I would like to go to this TN
Virtual Archive site and also Google "Crayon
Print". Mary in Missouri

MIKE - I "SINCERELY" THANK YOU FOR THE WONDERFUL
PICTURE OF MY GREAT-GREAT GRANDPARENTS THAT
YOU POSTED ON FIND-A-GRAVE OF (MICHAEL & MALINDA MORELOCK). THE PICTURE THAT I HAVE, I BELIEVE, CAME FROM A TIN TYPE. I AM NOT COMPLETELY CERTAIN BUT I MAY HAVE A CRAYON PRINT OF NATHAN MORELOCK & HIS WIFE, RACHEL, WHO ARE "PARENTS" OF MICHAEL MORELOCK.
MY FATHER WAS BORN IN GREENE COUNTY, TN. I
HAVE TIN TYPES AND PICTURES THAT MAY "NEVER"
BE IDENTIFIED !! THANK YOU.

What an unexpected but pleasant surprise when I visited the memorial for Hansford James who was my great, great grandfather.
Thank you so much for the nice contribution to his memorial as well as for my family photo collection.
I would be pleased if you would read my Bio and visit my parents' memorials by clicking on their links.

I noticed that you have posted information about Henry Gilbreath. While I'm not related, I do have a site dedicated to my ancestor, Jonas H. Roe (5th Illinois, Company M), who was my 3g-grandfather and I have transcribed the more than 100 letters and documents known to exist at http://civilwarletters.150m.com/. I'm always looking for any additional letters, photos, or other documents that can add to his life story and was wondering if you have any more information regarding the men of the Fifth.
Additionally, Rhonda Kohl recently created a new website for the 5th Illinois at http://fifthillinoiscavalry.webs.com/ to share and capture additional stories and documents following her book, "The Prairie Boys Go to War: The Fifth Illinois Cavalry, 1861-1865."
Thank you in advance for any help!!
All the best,
Las Vegas, NV

Hi Mike Serpa,
I'm a researcher with the Shapell Manuscript Foundation updating Simon Wolf's 1895 "The American Jew as Patriot, Soldier and Citizen" roster of Jewish civil war soldiers and sailors. We believe William B. Abrams is the W. B. Abrams that Wolf lists in the 97th NY Infantry Company F.
I wanted to ask your permission to use the fantastic picture you have of Abrams, it would be great if we could include an image of him in his record. We would of course give credit to you for the photograph. If there is information you are looking for on Abrams, I would be more than happy to share what we have found.
If you'd rather communicate via email, my contact information is below.

Thank you Mike for posting this so recently; I am a Civil War buff and beginning to write a novel which will feature the relationship between Fletcher and his very famous father, Daniel Webster; having the picture you posted really brings him alive and is the only picture I have been able to find that does that!

Mike - May I use your picture of Serena on my genealogy and history web site (http://rabgenealogy.com/p365.htm#i18233)? I don't charge for viewing it and don't make any money off of it. I will give you a "courtesy of" credit for the picture. And can you identify the child in the picture? Thanks for your consideration. Roger

Where did you get the photo of Richard Surby? He is my great, great-grandfather's brother, and I had never seen a photo of him before. Are you aware of any other Surby photos? He had three brothers who also served in the U.S. during the Civil War. (Benjamin Franklin Surby, Joseph Surby and James Surby). I would love to hear how you came across this photo.

Very interesting. So someone else put the headstone there. I'm just delighted that there are two folks who are helping me! And I'm pleased to know about the museum. Thanks a lot!

|Anonymous||RE: Isaac M. Allen|
Thanks for writing! Isaac's family lived in Portageville when he enlisted. They only lived there for a few years, as far as I can tell, but I guess they wanted him buried where they were living at the time. None of his siblings are buried there, as far as I know. I can't figure out what made them move to Portageville in the first place.
It's amazing how much text they put on the headstone!
I'd love to know why you photographed that particular headstone and where you got the photograph of Isaac. Does the NY Military Museum have photos (that are on the web)? -Barb
