Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired Huntsville Alabama Police Officer. I have been a student of local history for many years. My main interests lie in Alabama Civil War Units. One of the saddest things about the Civil War was that so many young men left home and were never heard from again. Their families never knew how or where they died or where they were buried. Thanks to the work of many Findagrave contributors, I have reunited many of these brave men,if only in a virtual cemetery. These cemeteries are a constant work in progress and a tedious undertaking. If you have a relative that has not yet been included, please let me know and it would be my honor to add them. I welcome any and all info on any of my memorials and am always happy to transfer your kin folk. If you visit the memorial of any of these brave men, please honor them in any way you see fit. Whether or not you believe their cause was just, does not matter. What matters is that men from both sides fought and died protecting the only way of life they had ever known. "Alas! In how many Southern homes aching hearts waited through weary months for news of loved ones that never came until the suspense was replaced by the real certainty that the absent one had helped to swell the unknown dead of the Wheatfield, the Peach Orchard, or the Devil's Den of a Northern land."--J. Howard Wert. Sometimes I come home from work with a sore back or tired feet or maybe even a headache. Then I think of a 18 year old boy lying wounded in a dark field. He's hundreds of miles from home. He's thirsty,hungry and cold. He's crying for his Mama. Or I think of Robert and Sarah Milling, of Dallas County, who lost their five sons to the Confederate cause in the 20th Alabama Infantry. Suddenly, I don't feel so bad afterall.

Sgt T S Richerson
Thomas Samuel Richeson aka Richerson mustered in at Newburg, Franklin Co, AL, Company A 27th Alabama Infantry.He was killed at Vicksburg 6-27-1863. Sources: 1) Some Alabama Confederate Soldiers who died at Vicksburg files, usgwarchives@net/al/statewide/military/civilwar/other/alabamas94nmt.txt 2) 3) I cannot find his burial in any confederate cemetery or family cemetery. Maybe his remains were unidentifiable. He was born March 18,1840 to Jesse & Celina Richeson at Newburg, Franklin County, AL. Thank you for all that you do.

Thanks so much for accepting the memorials. If I can help you with any research , please ask. I have been doing this as I am trying to recover. gail

RE: CSA families
Thanks for the kind words. I am finding that there
are so many headstones of our fallen Civil War
veterans and even the vets from the Revolution are
in need of cleaning, or the monuments are sinking.
You see much of this in state or county cemeteries
and I wonder why they are so forgotten...

CSA families

Hello Hutch, I am impressed with your strength and determination to help families with or without
answers. My paternal side is from the Carolina's.
I am going thru the Find A Grave civil war lists to leave
a memento for those soldiers that are without a
remembrance. Thank you for your good works...

I have entered some veteran memorials in Oakland and various cemeteries. Due to health, I am active/inactive at times. I only like to keep family. Would you be willing for me to transfer to you? Thanks, gail
