While searching for a different Charles Harness, I came across you memorial for Pvt. Charles McCamez Harness in Maple Hill Cemetery....or to be truthful, I came across all three of your memorials for him.

You probably don't realize there is more than one. Sometimes that stuff just happens!

I thought you would want to know so you could delete two of them and have just the one nice memorial.

Pvt Howard Mosier
Hello John Franklin Horrighs
I was wondering where you got the information on Pvt Howard Mosier from. Are you related to the Mosier Family? Any information on where Elizabeth Mosier is buried? I see it states Iowa, but where and what cemetery?
Daniel and Elizabeth Mosier were my 5th great grandparents and their daughter Minerva Mosier Boots Howard's sister was my 4th great grandmother.
Please e-mail me at

Thank You for creating this memorial

Hello - I just returned from the Westville Cemetery and found the stone for O. H. Smith and Angeline Smith. She has a memorial with photo already - see #101795223. I have also added photos for both.

RE: Capt. John M. Shaw
I added this memorial while transcribing a cemetery, however it is now maintained by someone else. Only information I had was what was on stone.

Wiliam H Hill update
Thank you for your SAC on William H Hill. He has turned into quite a case study in what happens when young people tried different means to enter Civil War service. The various researchers have come up with various thoughts along the same lines. I've updated William's memorial once again, hopefully about the last time (just kidding, sort of!). I'll use the 1846 DOB in Brooke county, West Virginia for the memorial, but as I noted that location isn't indicated as a residence in the obits of his parents. That would be an easy omission, however.

His memorial has become rather complicated, but perhaps others will now have a better idea about his life.

James Baldwin
For whatever reason, I have received about 20 e-mails regarding a photo request for James H. Baldwin at the Oak Hills Cemetery. And, they keep coming. Do you have any idea why this is happening?

RE: Honoring Union Veterans
John, Sorry about the delay in my writing. You and I have very similiar backgrounds, at least in our interests. I started re-enacting (Confederate) in 1979 and started doing both sides in 1985. At that time, I became the unit Historian and started researching and searching for the men who served in the Union unit that we chose to portray, the 86th Illinois. Though my re-enacting days have stopped, at least for the Civil War, I still do some WWII events here and there, I still continue my search for information about the 86th and the burials sites of the men who served in it. Of the 992 men who served in the 86th Illinois, to date, I have located right at 900 of those men. About 50 of those men seem to have practically disappeared after the Civil War. The other 40 or so, I have some pretty good leads on and hope, given the time, that I will find them or that their descendants will find me. Good luck in your pursuit and Keep up the Good work. I am sure you have read my favorite poem, WHEN THE BOYS IN BLUE ARE GONE. We all must continue to tell their story for them. Take care and good hunting!! Sincerely, Baxter

Re: Amsi Mervin Conklin
I thank you for sharing information about my 3rd great grandfather. The cemetery office has no record of him buried there but I have an order for a military headstone for him which was supposedly sent to Oakwood, it is so mysterious where he is buried. Oakwood was opened in June 1872 2 months after his death. I have left him in Oakwood because of the Headstone order. I understand there is another cemetery in Parson,Labette,KS which is older & he may be buried there but I have yet to learn the name of the cemetery, this information came from a volunteer who tried to get a photo of his grave, she was supposed to go back to the courthouse & check the records for this cemetery but she never got back to me.
