John Ginn # 32269170
Is this the John H Ginn who served as a Private in Company D "Danielsville Guard" 16th Regiment Georgia Volunteer Infantry? Company D was organized at Danilesvile GA and I noticed this John Ginn's mother died in GA.

If you are kin to him, and were aware that he served, then you are probably aware of the history of this Regiment. If not, feel free to contact me for a full account of their engagements. It seems this Regiment was involved in most every major battle of the Eastern theater (and some of the west) usually in the worst possible places.

If this John Ginn is the same as John H Ginn, he enlisted Aug 5 1861 at Danielsville Madison County GA by Capt Montgomery for the "war." He was hospitalized in Richmond for Rheumatism in 1862. He was wounded near Fredericksburg Dec 11-13, 1862 and he was killed at the Battle of the Wilderness May 6 1864.

Appears on a list of casualties, in McLaws Division, in the battles before Fredericksburg Va Dec 11-13, 1862
List dated near Fredericksburg, Va Dec 18, 1862
J. H. Ginn
Co D 16th Regt Ga

Appears on Company Muster Roll for May & June 1864 dated Dec 15 1864
J. H. Ginn
Pvt Co D 16 Regt Georgia Infantry

John H Ginn
Co D 16 Regt Ga
By whom presented: Celia Ginn, wife
When filed Aug 23 1864
Where died May 1864

PLease let me know one way or another. I am compiling a virtual cemetery of the entire 16th Regiment and so far have located and linked over 640 of its members. Also feel free to contact me if you'd like more information.

Need Parents added
I noticed that my Aunt Clara Board - ID#98721614 does not have her parents listed (my grandparents). Could you add those for me. I have the ID numbers.

Father ID# 55797808 (Thurley Crawford, Sr.)
Mother ID# 55510347 (Martha Ann Light Crawford)

My Aunt Clara also has several siblings that have passed. If you could transfer her grave over to me I'd appreciate it that way I can add her siblings that have passed. Please let me know on this.

Thank you.

Saying hello to family
My name is Angela Dawn (Sheffield) Stewart. Thomas Ross Shepherd and Hattie Eva (Kersey) Shepherd were my grandparents. My mother is Alva Elaine (Shepherd) Sheffield (Lonnie W. Sheffield,Sr.), next to the youngest of the living children. I just wanted to say hello and let you know I'm on find a grave too. I also wanted to thank you for putting these up of my grandparents. I loved granny dearly and wish I could have known grandpa. If you'd like to visit our website, I'm doing mine and my husband's genealogy history at the link below. I am also on as ads35298. If you'd like to exchange information, please let me know and I'll be glad to chat with you. God bless and have a great day!

You have posted quite a few Brown obits that are in my line back to the Paynes from Franklin County.
Do you happen to know where Milton H. Taylor is buried? His dau. Martha Ann was 2nd wife of Ace Alexander Brown.
Did not find him on findagrave, but I'm sure it would be Franklin County, GA.

Many thanks for any help you can provide.

Randy, do you know my husband? He never mentioned you and being Robert's wife of 18 years, I'm not familiar with you either, nor do I appreciate someone using MY WRITING
and my picture of Robert without my permission. THIS WAS NOT created by you. This obit took me hours and many tears. I've been through enough with his death and wish for his memory and for our family to be fully respected.

RE: Randy Shepherd on Find A Grave
Well, I'm glad your still with us on this earth, thought for sure you might had made an exit. I been e-mailing Find A Grave asking to maintain your records at wood lawn and they never did respond.

Did you break a scared rule ? I would contact them again and ask. Somebody must had complained about something. Let me know what you find out.
