Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have walked over 100 grave yards looking for confederate generals, Colonels, Navy, and Politicians in order to write a book I hope to someday publish I have also located some of the staff officers of the Army of Northern Virginia. I have always had a strong passion for confederate civil war history ever since I was a child. I did my family genealogy in 5 years going all the way back to the 1700's. I am currently working on locating more and more of the Confederate general,confederate statesmen and staff officer graves. It's my hopes to help anyone on here who might have a strong interest in the Confederacy and I also want to be able to make sure all of the staff officers, Generals, and Statesmen receive the proper respect they deserve. If you have any confederate history questions would be honored to answer any of them.

On the Trail
Col Henry Philip Thomas
Regarding Col H P Thomas, 16th GVI...wasnt there a quote from a letter or newspaper that appeared on his memorial stating that the remains of Col H P Thomas had been removed and reinterred at the request of his son? What was his son's name? And would you mind sending me a copy of the quote? It seems to have been deleted from his memorial.

Best regards,

Col. Thomas Smith Rhett
Rob: the Thomas Rhett you are looking for is NOT the one buried at Saint Helena Episcopal in Beaufort, SC. The Thomas Rhett buried here is Thomas M. Rhett, wife Caroline Barnwell. Sorry! Judy

Sallie Bass Malone Wheeler
Sorry but Sallie nor her husband Col. Wheeler have any headstones that are to be found. They surveyed the Cem. back in 2012 and there are a lot of old graves past the point of no return. It really is truly sad. Sorry

Many things in common
Hi Rob, I just read your bio. on here and had to email you. I feel like we may have met or might know each other from somewhere. A lot of WBTS people on here I am finding out.
I have done and am doing many of the same things you are doing with Confederates and their graves. Maybe not quite as many as you have.
I know there are many of us still around.
I have many pictures of the General`s graves that I have visited over the years. "Generals in Grey" first got me started in the 1980`s. Great book.
Anyway shoot me a line sometime when you get the chance. Sincerely, Eli Chandler

Michael Magevney
Sorry, but Mr. Magevney has no visible marker. He is buried in the J.J. Murphy Plot. There is one overtuned stone that is too heavy to lift which MAY be his, but from the plot map I do not think so.

Lay family in Shockoe
I have added the info you sent for John F. Lay's memorial and I have either linked or sent the links for the children you listed, except for 3 (David, Caroline [d.1870] and Anna), so they are linked to their parents. I do have a question, John Lay (#5098374), with the dates you sent for him as a son of John & Caroline Lay, conflict with the fact he is listed as the son of David & Nannie Lay instead on his memorial. Is the memorial you have a document to confirm he is the son of John & Carolline? Also, I have an "unknown" Lay (#52071705) with a grave marker that is hard to read, Would you know if it might be David, Caroine or Anna Lay's grave marker? Thanks for your help.

Sallie Wheeler - Mt. Moriah
Her grave is also unmarked according to the southernmiddletennesseecemeteries web site. They personally surveyed and photographed also all the Giles Co. Cemeteries as late as 2011.

Jaes Thadeus Wheeler-Mt. Moriah
I have been working on stone photos for Mt. Moriah. On the web site - southernmiddletennesseecemeteries there is a listing for Mt. Moriah Cemetery. It states that when they surveyed the cemetery - there was no stone for James Thadeus Wheeler, however at the top of the web site - there are over 50,000 obits, Col James Wheeler is one of them. Thought this might help you some before you remove the request. Blessings.

Col.G.W. Lemoyne
We went to Brearley Cem. today to take photo requests. The only thing we could find for Col. Lemoyne was his CSA marker leaned up against the back of his wife's headstone. There looked like there had been a marker next to her at one time, but it is no longer there.

Col. Thomas Smith Rhett
I am sorry to report that Col. Rhett is not buried in Saint Helena Parish Church Cemetery. The church maintains meticulous records and surveys of the grave sites and he is not here. Neither is his wife, Eliza Eckley Rhett listed in the records. Since the Colonel died in Washington, DC I think it more likely that he is buried in a Confederate cemetery closer to there.
At any rate, I am closing this request for St. Helena's. Good luck in your research and book.
