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.

Civil War Soldiers
Hi Hutch,

If you ever need help locating a civil war soldier in Columbus, Georgia or the surrounding area. Columbus, Georgia is right on the border with Alabama. I would be glad to help.

Take care,
Sandy M. Guthrey

Union Soldiers - 1862
Hutch,
I have recently been given an assignment that might be just up your ally. So without doing the possible research that might have already been compiled by you on Find A Grave, I'm looking for approx. 180 soldiers that fought and died here in Huntsville and are buried in Maple Hill Cemetery. I have a list of 38 soldiers that DO have markers in Maple Hill. Are you able to help in this matter or possibly point me into the right direction to find the lost soldiers?
Susan

Henry W Lott & Theophilus Floyd
Hello, I was also wondering if you could possibly add Henry W. Lott (87398477) and Theophilus Floyd (52718140) to your virtual cemetery for the 39th Alabama Infantry (Company H). They were brother in laws to the Bounds soldiers you have included and also served in that same regiment. Thanks very much again for your consideration!
