Hello Kathy, I recently saw the marker you added for Myra and wondered if you have any information on her husband, William Jasper Everett, as to a date of death and where he is buried? I haven't had any luck in finding records on him after her death.

Correction-Date of death on the casualty list is the 21st rater than the (18th) as listed on his war records.
Read the on line account of the battle of Champion Hill as written by Samuel Hawkins Marshall Byers, Regimental Adjutant, 5th Iowa Infantry. The title is "With Fire and Sword."
|Sandra McCarrick||RE: James H Roland|
Many from Champion Hill were not identified and are buried as unknowns at Vicksburg. The only information I have is that the Union Soldiers bodies were recovered and moved there. James body was not returned to Iowa so I think it fair to assume that he is in Section G at Vicksburg National Cemetery. His name is spelled differently on several records, one in particular is the Union casualties listing at Champion Hill. It is spelled Rowland. The name did change spellings over a period of years from Rouland to Rowland then Roland. At any rate we would be related somewhere along the line.
I just found a hand written Casualty list on Ancestry which must be a new entry. It lists his date of death as the 21st rather than the 21st rather than the 18th. Many discrepancies with records are to be found when researching. I am going with the date listed on the copies of his records obtained from the National Archives but those may also be incorrect. No way of knowing for certain.

I have spoken to Syd Champion, a fifth generation family member who owns the Champion Hill property where James H. fought and died. He informed me that after Vicksburg National Cemetery was developed the bodies of Union Soldiers were removed from the battlefield at Champion Hill and were given full military honors with their burials at Vicksburg. Very few were identified which is very sad. James was the brother of my great-grandfather William Roland who also served in the Civil War.
I will be going to the 150th Civil War reenactment with our reenactors group next year. Mr. Champion has agreed to give me a personal tour of the property to which I am looking forward to doing.

Thank you for the information on Andrew Corsini. Would you like me to take the memorial down, or add a correction, or better yet, would you like me to transfer ownership to you and you could put in a clarification? Please let me know. Thanks, Susan
Thank you for the info on George and Mary Adell Adams. Do you the names of their parents?

Right, that was what I found. We're related through William and Andrew/ their parents' line. Now if I can just find Andrew's grave! ;-)
