Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am an avid history fan and Civil War Historian of sorts. I primarily do research for a book i'm currently writing that will pay tribute to men who fought on both sides. If you would like to contact me about the Civil War please feel free to do so at the email address below. Thank you very much to anyone who leaves flowers on my family members pages. Have a wonderful day.***As a note, when doing research I leave flowers. If I have left a flower for your loved one its out of respect because I looked at their memorial. I usually don't have additional information.

*****Just as another side note, If you come across a Confederate Veteran, don't disrespect them by leaving an American Flag. They didn't fight for it. Thanks!******

John Hudson
RE: Phillip Woolsey Hudson
Will do Anne. The letter was re-printed in the then named Conecticut Courant newspaper in Hartford, which the Hudson family owned and published from around 1790 through around 1860 and I found it through a Google search. It's a letter to his father and is real interesting as he talks about the hardships and shortages in boot camp.

Memorial Transfer Please
Thanks so much for all the work you have done. "Capt. Phillip Woolsey Hudson" is my great grandfather and I would like to add some additional information to his memorial. I don't have a lot about his Civil War service other than very basic information like where he served. I do have a copy of a letter he wrote to his father from boot camp with the Union Army that's pretty interesting that I'd like to add. I was wondering if you could transfer his memorial to me.

John Bland at Hopewell
This person is not at this cemetery in Blount Co AL. There is apparently a Hopewell cemetery in Cullman Co. AL... which is right next to Blount Co. There is a memorial for him at that cemetery with pictures already posted. His memorial # for the correct one is 30693525. Hope this helps you. I will close out your picture request due to this information.

RE: George Simmons
I don't believe that any of those men is the George in Oak Hill Cemetery. But, I have another question that you might know the answer to. Somewhere in Texas is a college or university that has records which were kept by a doctor. Apparently, field doctors were supposed to send names, dates and causes of sickness/death to him. After the war, that doctor ended up in Texas, and there the records remain. Do you know of the place?

George Simmons
I came across the obit listing from the Prattville Progress of George Simmons, who died on the Wednesday before March 2, 1906 (I figured out that it would have been on Feb. 28 of that year). How would I find out if he served in the Civil War? His age was listed as 63 in the 1900 census, and I remember seeing that he had dates on his cemetery slab. The obit said that the family came from Butler Co. AL. No relatives were listed by name. The obit mentioned that he was connected to the local paper, so I wonder if in today's terminology, he might have been a war correspondent?

Andrew J. Simmons
Just thought you might get a chuckle out of this! I took the photo of A.J. and Andrew J. Simmons (A.J. is the footstone, Andrew is the headstone). He was buried by George Simmons. Since there were no dates, I tried to find him on a census. On the 1900 census, Andrew is listed as the brother of George, George being 63, while Andrew is 56 (if my math is right, he would be born about 1854). How young were they when in the military? Even stranger, we find that Andrew is a mail carrier, but he can't read or write! Thank goodness he can speak English!

RE: Betty Smith
Thank you, Anne, I appreciate the fast action :)
You and all the others do a terrific service. I think I would like doing this, but after wandering around the nearest cemetery, I don't know how you all find ANY one! lol

Sidney Smith
Were you the person who requested the photo of Sidney Smith's grave in the Oak Hill Cemetery of Autauga County, AL? I had taken a photo of S.A. Smith's grave with the birth and death dates as had
been requested. I even entered it. S.A. was the wife of B.F. Smith. When I read the write up for his grave site, I realized I had not gotten Sidney's grave, so I removed the photo and created a new image for B.F.'s wife. Apparently, Sidney was a Confederate soldier who went off with the Prattville Dragoons. I can still search the cemetery for Sidney's grave, even though it had not been found at the time of the cemetery project our genealogy society had done several years ago.

Are we related?
Anne, Hi, I'm Timothy Gould, great grandson of Thomie isora Bales married to Howard Marvin Gould..formerly "Gold" a few censuses earlier. I left a family tree of sorts on her dad, great, great grandpa Burl C Bales and noticed you left something and wondered if we were related or if he was someone in the civil war or something.. I'm really researching who his wife was..I know he was married to an Elmira and a Sylvanna A Barry...just not sure who thomie's mother was. Thomie also had a sister, Louanna. I know Burl and Elmira were married in 1887. Thommie Isora Bales and Howard Marvin Gould had three children, one is my grandpa, Bobby, who died in 2009. My grandmother still lives in Byng, Oklahoma. Well, hi from Oklahoma. You can reach me at
