|Bio and Links|
I am a fifth generation Oregonian but currently live in Winchester, Virginia. I am active in the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War and work to repair, replace, or mark the graves of Civil War veterans buried in Oregon. In 2009 we completed renovation of the Grand Army of the Republic Cemetery in Portland including the replacement of a bronze statue stolen more than forty years ago. In 2007 we completed renovation of the G.A.R. burial plot in the Eugene Pioneer Cemetery.|
The picture is of my son Andrew and I at the Portland G.A.R. Cemetery for the dedication ceremony on May 30, 2009.

Thanks so much Randy for the photo! :)
|Kathy Gatlin||RE: Andrew Jackson Sutton|
It is Sutton
I'm remiss in also thanking you for the photo of Addison Geho's grave. For some reason, I received noticed that you'd posted a photo of William Pyers' grave, but didn't receive anything from Find A Grave re: your posting of the photo for Addison's.)
Weird glitch, but I just wanted you to know how very much I appreciate your help. Your photos are simply beautiful!

I am very impressed with the work that you've done to insure future appreciation of the precious monuments. I have a great grandfather that fought and survived the Civil War and he is buried in Pendleton, Oregon. My grandmother was very careful with precious paperwork and even was able to give me a newspaper obituary of him stating that he marched with Sherman to the sea. Thank you so much for all that you have done and continue to do in your Find A Grave efforts! A grateful friend,

We can't thank you enough for trying to find the tombstone of Thomas Rees -- it takes a lot of effort and diligence to look for a tombstone and never discover it. Thanks for your time and patience!!

I noticed that you have a "Virtual Cemetery" for members of the 1st OVI. I am working on a memorial for a man whose records indicate that he belonged to that unit, but his grave appears to be unmarked (# 124630340). Are you aware of any individual or group who/which will spearhead the effort to get his grave marked?
I understand that the VA has recently become more intractable about such matters, insisting that it must be pursued by a family member -- which is quite difficult, since his obit stated that he had no relatives.
Any suggestions that you might have would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks, and have a great day!
