Bio and Links
Bio Photo Adding memorials is a great way to honor your family & get to know them better. My main goal is adding everyone buried in Lincoln County, WY & Harrison County, IN. Next projects will be Jasper County, MO & Bourbon County, KY & always adding my LOOMIS family from Essex, ENG, Tolland, CT & Grant County, KY & Pendleton County, KY. Probably, my most active line is the LONG line of Boone County, AR, Sevier County, TN & Ottawa County, OK. Spending time with friends & family on FindaGrave is very relaxing.

Capt. George Amussen
Hi Carol -- I'm having trouble contacting you through the "edit" feature, so am asking you here if you would please delete the duplicate memorial for George Amussen in Our Mother of Sorrows Cemetery in Reno, Nevada. Thank you.

Much appreciated,

Hi, Carol -

Please disregard my edit request to link Rose (24725212) and Norman (126129702). Since I created Norman and linked his mom, I forgot it "feeds both ways" and the link is one her page now. I'm still learning so please accept my apologies. :-)

RE: LTC Reuben Loomis
I was a volunteer for my town and we were researching every book, document and newspaper article that had anything to do with Collierville, TN, during the war. There were several battles and skirmishes here as both Germantown and Collierville sat on the M&C RailRoad and both had Union troops garrisoned there and defending from earth fortifications. I think I first read about the shooting of Lt-Col. Loomis in an article published at the time in the newspaper, Memphis Bulletin. He had a bizarre death but his best claim to fame was his action in the famous Grierson's Raid which the John Wayne movie, The Horse Soldiers, was loosely based. And from our research, these same Union cavalry regiments kept popping up as the cavalry regiments patrolled the RR between Memphis and Corinth and into North Mississippi for at least 2 years, maybe more.

LTC Reuben Loomis
You have a Memorial Page for LTC Reuben Loomis who was from Pike County OHIO and served as commander of the 6th Illinois Cavalry. You state he died on 2 Nov 1863 in West Virginia.
The commander of the 6 Illinois Cavalry was a Lt-Colonel Reuben Loomis. There is another Memorial Page for him. Both have confusing info. The photo you posted is a photo of this LTC Reuben Loomis.
Lt-Col. Reuben Loomis was killed in Germantown, Tennessee. He was shot in an argument by a fellow officer. There are at least two articles on the internet about this: one is "A Matter of Honor".
I have some info that says he was born in Massachusetts, but I'm not sure.
I wonder who was the Reuben .Loomis that you say was killed in West Virginia.
The other Memorial Page is found for the Old Du Quoin Cemetery, Du Quoin, Perry County.
