Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have walked over 50 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.

Lilian Astin 81781021
Dates don't add up. Should that death date be 1964?

Re Dr James Power Smith

Just so that you know, you have duplicated his memorial, I noticed that I had posted his memorial on 11/29/13. See Find A Grave#93888603. I went ahead and posted the same pic to your site. That said you should have the site manager GRAVES transfer the site to you or have him post your BIO data to his memorial.

Good luck

Haywood-Short Staple
Rob, If you created this cemetery, could you change it to Hagood-Short Staple, its correct name. For reference, go to
It is also called the Hagood Family Cemetery depending on the obits you find. It is listed Hagood-Short Staple in the Barnwell County Cemeteries Book. Short Staple was the name of the Hagood family plantation.

Confederate Graves
Also, I have a virtual Confederate Cemetery you might want to look through. Mostly GA, but a scattering of other southern states also...

RE: Astin Plantation
Hi Rob,
If the Astin Cemetery is supposed to be on the Astin plantation/homestead then I have located the land, just not the cemetery. Well I think I have...according to the maps on the county tax site and Google map, I have. The problem is that the house number listed on the tax site is not on a house or mailbox on this road. The 2 consecutive properties numbers are 8000 and 7250. The cemetery info from the historical site show the address where the cemetery is as 7600 (or something close to that). The house at 7250 is an old farm house with several barns. I took a picture of that house and will send it to you your email address.
Did you get the link that I sent you about the Astin cemetery? or do you have a nother email address you want me to use?

Hi Rob

Had a good look for this grave at Budock but coudn't find it, didn't check inside the Church as it was locked. - Since coming home have searched the database and found what I think is the same person you are after buried in Falmouth Cemetery nearby - see Findagrave nominal number 26037685 With some photos - hope this helps
