|Nick OBrien||RE: Civil War Veterans|
Since Charles Ruby is a relative, I would prefer to retain management of it. But I will gladly include any new info you may have, and with proper credit. :) He had a brother, John W. Ruby (25903613), who died in the Battle of Stones River at the end of 1862, but he was buried in Macon County, which might be out of your scope. He had several other brothers who fought, but they all lived to tell about it except John.
|Nick OBrien||Charles Ruby|
Thank you for the Civil War info! Are you a relative, or are you canvassing Civil War veterans in general?
|Fran Wallace||James Hannon|

Thank you for the addition military history. It has been added to Charles' memorial.
|John Fisher-Green||Joseph Demory|
Just making sure, for Joseph Demory this is what I added:
Note: PVT, Co. C, 71st Illinois Infantry, Civil War.
If this isn't the correct information please let me know.
Thank you for sending me the additional information.
|D. Gould Hall||Isaac Gillen memorial edit|
Please accept my apologies for not responding to the edit for Isaac Gillen. I have sent you a note regarding that one.
|D. Gould Hall||Memorial #136992432|
You have entered a memorial for Corp. T.M. Berry at Mt. Hope Cemetery. I believe he is the same as my Thomas M. Berry as the company he served in and the year of death are a match. However, according to his Veterans Headstone request card, he died on 2 Dec 1889. Where did you get the date of 12 Feb? I would like to link him to his wife and children, but want to be 100% sure this is the correct person.
