Born in Arkansas. Retired from the US Navy. I reside in the White Mountains area of Arizona (Apache country) and my particular interests are in the Old Western Lawmen, Outlaws, and Cowboys and Indians. I also enjoy the history of early American Wars; Civil War; War of 1812; Revolutionary War and the French-Indian War. If you find any mistakes in my entries I will be more than glad to correct them. If I have entered members of your family that you would like to have control, just ask.
I am a member of the Sons of Confederate Veterans and the first Commander of Camp 2233 in Show Low, AZ.
I am also a board member of the Wild West History Association.
Please check my website for interesting stories on Old West historical characters, Civil War stories and get a preview of my books.
RE: Peter Shaver of WV Concerning our discussion last year on Peter Shaver, I received information from a down line grandson of Peter's who said that Peter died in 1791 and not in 1781 as is on his marker. He said he did die in an Indian massacre, but that it was not the Tygart Valley Massacre that is referred to. He is so far removed from Peter, so who knows? I am still researching the dates whenever I get a chance.
Bonnie Lou Stephens Alcorn Thank you for setting up my mother's information for the Pinetop, Arizona graveyard. She died when I was 5 years old and it is wonderful to see her headstone. Thank you so much. William
Brigham Young Peterson JR I have viewed the photo of Bringham Young Peterson Sr's headstone with his spouse. I accepted a request for Phoebe Turley Peterson upon locating the marker the name of her husband was the same as your Bringham Young Peterson except this one is listed as a Junior with different dates than "his father?" both are buried in St Johns City Cemetery, Arizona. I am attaching the full photo of the headstone to Phoebe Turley Peterson if you wish to view..The date of his birth was 17 April 1918 which I noticed was missing from the list of siblings birth dates. Hope this will help. Don
Sam Battaglia Hi, I read your bio on Sam and wondered if you had anything further in regard to his parents and/or siblings? I'm especially interested in his brother Anthony who was shot and killed in his driveway in La Grange Park, Il in 1975.
Louie and Wanda Apple Hi Tom, you do not have to be the person over the memorial site to remove the picture of the cemetery sign. You remove the picture the same way you put one on there. No one had to give you permission to add a cemetery sign did they? Go to their Find A Grave site, select the cemetery sign you put on their and choose to delete the selected picture.
If someone wants to see what the sign at Brearley looks like their is one on the main page.
