RE: Granville B McDonald
The caption contains the link to the page.

But here are 950 photos if Civil War veterans from Illinois, (at 200 per page) with a photo for each:

Some of those soldiers are from the 30th.

I just did a "Ctrl F" search of the first 2 pages (400 men shown, including a few men with more than 1 photo) for 30, and there were a2 hits on the first page and about 9 hits on the second, not counting hits for 130.

I am now in the process of going through the list as it is now (more will be added later) and searching those names to see if they have Find A Grave profiles. (I am going in alphabetical order by their first names). I am starting the H's now.

When I find a match, I copy, adjust, fix up (to a point) and add the photo and link to the original on the Find A Grave memorial, although in some cases somebody else beat me to it :)

Granville B McDonald
Hi Matthew,

I saw that you previously added a photo of Granville to his memorial. So I want to let you know that I added another photo, in case you have a connection to Granville.

RE: Again
I am so sorry. I am having so much trouble with my computer that I can't seem to work for more than ten minutes at a time.

As a matter of fact, I had to restart my computer half way through this message.

Anyway, I will get to it. Sorry again.

Thank you Matthew for going out and getting the picture of Mitchell Dudek. I had just about given up on getting one. P. Mazankowski

RE: Ogden Greenough
You are entirely welcome. I'm glad I had the opportunity to help. While I was there, I also got photo's of the other Greenbough headstones. I hope to get them on today, if you have any use for them. If not, someday, someone probably will.

Hi Matthew, could you possible give me the dates for Frank Tobin? I think he might be their son but I am not positive just yet. My email is

Re: Charles Sexton
Matt, Today I received a Find A Grave photo request for the above plus three others that you are interested in. Currently we have more snow on the ground than we've had at this time of year in recent memory so your request is going in the pending file. I believe that you are no. 12 in that file so it might be quite a while before I can get to it, but we will make a concerted effort to "get 'er done." -mld-
