Bio and Links
Bio Photo There are over 98,100 souls buried in Oakwood Cemetery in Richmond, Va. and 11,800 Confederate soldiers give or take a 1,000. The picture on the left Is the Confederate section Oakwood Cemetery taken in 1865. ***IF ANYBODY HAS INFORMATION OR PICTURES ABOUT SOLDIERS BURIED IN OAKWOOD CEMETERY CONFEDERATE SECTION IN RICHMOND VA. AND HAS PROOF THAT HE IS PLEASE CONTACT ME.*** Please DO NOT WASH HEADSTONES!!! You can destroy them by using any kind of soap, bleach, Ajax. I came across a marble stone over 200 years old a few years ago. I went back and somebody had cleaned it. It was all pitted and the details were almost gone and the stone turned gray. Reason you do not clean them. There are chemicals in all modern cleaning materials. They will eat them away faster than the weather. SO LEAVE THEM ALONE!!! If you can't read them DO A RUBBING with paper and pencil. Post the headstone and the rubbing together. I also found out you can use thin aluminum foil using a soft brush and brush lightly over the letters. I'm starting to see where people are rewriting history to fit there agenda.//// F. A. Q. How do I get a relative's memorial transferred to me?
First, Determine if you really need the memorial transferred to you for management. Transferring of management should only be requested If you have extensive changes to make to a memorial. You can add photos and suggest corrections without having to request management. Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a management transfer request. With hundreds of thousands of contributors, we have many overlapping family trees and it would be impossible for all contributors to manage their entire tree. Also, the goal is not to "own" every memorial of those to whom you are related. The ultimate goal should be to have meaningful, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away, regardless of who created the memorial or who maintains it.

RE: Pvt. William G. Ramsey
The records I looked at stated that William was held in Libby Prison in the city of Richmond, Virginia. His parents were Richard Ramsey and Sarah "Sally" Rector. I located their memorials and will send you an edit to connect them to their son. William was my 3rd great grandfather's (Henry Ramsey) 2nd cousin. Henry also joined a Kentucky Union regiment at the age of 18. He was wounded, captured and released at Richmond, KY in 1862. A year later he was seriously wounded at the Battle of Chickamauga and eventually sent home to start his family. He could have easily ended up like his cousin. A family tree sometimes rests on the fortunes of a soldier. Thank you for your time and efforts on veteran's graves and the cemeteries they rest in. I have been appalled at the condition of many stones of Civil War veteran's in my family alone. They need to be remembered.

Would really appreciate any help.
