We are trying to figure out if John had a brother named William Henry Valentine, born in Franklin County, MS on April 20, 1834, died in Grant Parish, LA on May 18, 1900 (Oak Grove Cemetery).

Sarah was my great grandmother. I am told she was a Phillips prior to marrying Noah. Are you a family member, or do you know any more info on her?
|J Murphy||RE: Major James Yarbrough|
Thank you very much, a transfer would be very much appreciated, & would make everything simpler.
I know she has a photo, I will check with her to see what else she might have & let you know.

Very neat. Well I certainly thank you for taking it, as the Confederacy and Louisiana is your interest you may care to know that his father moved there from Mississippi, supposedly fearing a new railroad would ruin his cotton business. His father's business partner in MS, P S Catchings, signed the Mississippi Ordinance of Secession.

I descend through his aunt, Kate Aby who married A J Turner. It was ever so neat to see a picture of him, is there a story to how you got it?
|Barbara||RE: Cypress Grove cemetery|
Thank you for getting back to me regarding the Confederate Soldiers & Cypress Grove.
NOLA Girl has added them all (see messages she sent to me). Send her a big "Thanks" because the listing I sent her was inclusive of Fla, Ga, Ala, Miss, La, Tx, Ark, Tenn, and Carolinas (think she said 190+ names)with death dates for most of them.

Not finding listed at Cypress Grove or in Lousiana. I hope you will take a look at this -- decision - to add these soldiers to "Cypress Grove" vs not adding. Would appreciate your input from newspaper article (partial) of Dec 1863:
After a description of her visit to the place, she says: "The Confederate graves were beautifully decorated, not one neglected. They presented a glorious contrast to the graves of the Federals, some of which were covered with weeds that made it almost impossible to see the head-boards. Where the Union ladies were we should like to know. In the center of the Confederate burial ground (which is in Cypress Grove) there is a cross about seven feet high, covered with black velvet, and spangled with gold. In golden letters inscribed on the front of the cross, are these words, "To our Southern brothers, by the ladies of New Orleans."
