Bio and Links
Bio Photo I began doing family genealogy over 30 years ago.After I retired from the military, I became very interested in the Civil War. I had visited many civil war cemeteries, and the many unknown soldiers buried in them. Every soldier who died in war for his country should be known and honored. And the families of the soldier should be able to know where he is buried, this has been my goal to provide that information to those who are searching for a soldier.

I spend a great deal of my time traveling to battlefields and cemeteries, and researching information on a soldier or person. If at anytime I can be of help or if you need more information please contact me. Or if you have more information on a soldier. If a correction needs to be made "PLEASE" contact me. Don't write an other "BIO" in the Flowers and Notes section of the Memorial. Leave a message or email me anytime.

I will tranfer memorials if it is a request made by a relative of a soldier. If you are not related please do not ask. If you have information in regards to a soldiers memorial I will be more then happy to add it.

"The Bivouac of The Dead"

The muffled drums sad roll's all beat
the soldier's last tatoo,
No more on life's parade shall meet
The brave and fallen few.

The neighing troop, the flashing blade,
The bugles stirring blast,
The charge,the dreadful cannonade,
The din and shout are past.

Rest on embalmed and sainted dead,
Dear as the blood ye gave,
No impious footstep here shall thread.
The herbage of your grave,

On fame's enternal camping ground,
Their silent tents are spread,
And glory guards with solemn round,
The bivouac of the dead.

No vision of the morrow's strife
The warrior's dream alarms,
No braying horn nor screaming fife
At dawn shall call to arms,

No rumor of the foe's advance
Now sweeps upon the wind,
No troubled thought at midnight haunts
Of love ones left behind,

Your own proud land's heroic soil
must be your fitter grave;
She claims from war his richest spoil,
The ashes of the brave.

-Theodore O'Hara-

Note: In making correction to memorials, I will make corrections, Birth dates, Death dates, Marriage dates add a spouse or children, if they have memorials, I will not add long Bio's, I just don't have the time. If you have a Bio I will be more then happy to transfer a memorial to you to add a bio, when finished just transfer it back. I spent a great deal of time traveling to battlefields and cemeteries which takes up a lot of my time, I would be greatful for any help you can give me in regards to memorials.

RE: Jonathan Browing
Ted,

Thanks. We have been cleaning and restoring the Browning Hill Cemetery in Franklin County , Illinois. This is where Jonathan Brownings parents and wifes are buried. The Cemetery dates back to 1812. Jonathan has a stone here too. I am going next week to see a old Bible where it is supposed to have information in it about Jonathan being killed. The stone here has dates that are not the same.

Jesse Paynes family is buried there to as his widow was one of Jonathans wifes.

Thanks, Dale

John Hamilton 1840-1865 (64)
Hi Ted, thank you for what you have done for our nation's vets.
My 2nd Great grand uncle John Hamilton b. 1840 was captured May 22 1864 after the battle of Spotsylvania and went to General Hospital 21 where he ded May 26, 1864. One of the historical records has him as died 1865, which is what you have. This is apparently some other official date. I have seen it mentioned as mustering out date, but everything else I have seen says he died May 26, 1864 at the confederate hospital for Union soldiers.
thank you

I am related to this soldier. I noticed that he has a memorial from "Veterans Family" and I would like to contact them or have them contact me. Can you make that happen? I am researching the Case family. Thank you,

RE: Old City Cemetery
Hi Ted, you are certainly welcome. I have taken it upon myself to try and put up a memorial for all of the soldiers buried in the Confederate Section of The Old City Cemetery. I am so appreciative when I find people such as yourself who have done so much work to post memorials for the men, that the least I can do is to post a photo and location of their graves in the hopes that one day a family member will find their long lost loved one. Thank you sir so much for all of your work!

Thomas L Rees/Reese
I am looking for a Thomas Rees born in 1831 in NY and died at Andersonville, unfortunately without a date, but after Feb 20, 1864 when he was captured.
I see that your Thomas Rees also has a Thomas L Reese memorial in the same cemetery. I don't want to add a new one if your sure both Thomas' are your guy.
Let me know, Lynne
