Mooney memorial Hi Dee, I am researching my Wingard ancestors and happened to come across this memorial for James Clinton Mooney, Sr. You left a tribute on his page and I thought I would contact you to see if you have any information that might help me find my great grandfather Pvt. David Samuel Wingard Sr. I don't know if you are related to the Mooney family or not but James Clinton Mooney Sr. served in the same regiment [ the 5th Ala Infantry Company H ] during the Civil War as my great Grandfather. My GGrandfather was born in 1831 and was several years older and died on Jan. 17, 1863. He died from pneumonia in Wayside Receiving Hospital #9 in Richmond three days after Pvt. Mooney. I think he was probably buried in Hollywood Cemetery very close to Pvt. Mooney but I have not been able to find which grave he is buried in. I believe it is marked unknown. Do you know any info that might help me find the exact gravesite of my GGrandfather? Pvt. Mooney's gravesite may be in a different section if he died on the battlefield. I know this is a shot in the dark but figured it couldn't hurt to at least try. I would dearly love to be able to get a marker for my GGrandfather and have it put on his grave. This section where I think he is buried is the Soldier's Section D if my information is correct. Please let me know if you know anything that might help me find this grave. It would mean so much to so many relatives of his to be able to link them all together. He is the only sibling that is not accounted for on his parents memorials and their were 11 more children. Thank you so much for whatever you can tell me. God Bless, Linda Wingard Parrish PS. I am a Find A Grave contributor and you might be able to send a reply to my Find A Grave page to send this email back to me because sometimes I don't receive regular emails on my computer I am listed as Linda Parrish on it.. Thanks again LWP
Morris S. Barber Dee, thank you for leaving flowers on my dads grave and my grandparents Martin L. and Pearl James Barber. I loved the butterfly chime and want to know if I can also use on my husbands memorial. I also would love to know if we are related, my mother is still living and is 91 years old. Would love to share with her. Thanks for leaving flowers and beautiful tribute. Look forward to your reply. Again thanks, Rebecca Barber South
Theodore Autry My name is Georgia E Autry Vaughn. I believe Theodore is my grandfather. I'm the daughter of his son George Autry. I've been trying to find anyone who has information about my family. Can you contact me? First through email then by phone which I will provide later.
I see you left a photo of the cap badge of the regiment Robert Smithson enlisted in, nice touch, thanks. I am not a family member but I have recently purchased one of his WW1 medals- the British War Medal, along with this were some documents and a photo of Robert just after enlisting. I will upload this photo later, just wondered if Robert was a family member? I do know a bit about the family having researched the medal- he had four sisters, Mary Anne, Maud, Nellie and Nancy. I also have some information on his parents, John Smithson and Sarah Anne Laycock Rainford if anyone is interested.
Seems Robert succumbed to pneumonia, and there are other WW1 graves in the Blackburn Cemetery where those soldiers also died of pneumonia.
