Bio and Links
Bio Photo There is only one tragedy worse than the burial of a fallen hero in an unknown grave. Some heroes are known at the time of interment, but due to erosion and neglect, become unknown at a later date. We cannot permit this to occur.

Legible headstones are best. Next best are precise GPS coordinates, taken at the center of the grave.

As I receive your information on Civil War Memorials I am going to transfer to you for management - best to have these brave souls with the one who knows them best. Keep up all your great work in remembering these fallen heros.

I updated the bio with the military information. I believe John S. McCoy, who is buried next to him is his brother. It appears they both fought at Antietam.

It would be much easier to communicate via email. I hate going through the boards and closed my because people keep requesting changes through the boards.

McConnellstown Cemetery. The memorials were created from a physical inventory done by Debbie Fisher Riley. She is excellent and I can rely on her accuracy 99.9% of the time. I respect the quality of her work.

Her database is located at It is broken into 6 files. I quickly glanced through the files and found him in file number 6. I am enclosing those buried in the same row as him. This shows that he has a physical stone that was recorded by Debbie Fisher Riley.

The question was about a duplication. Without additional research I cannot determine if your research would be a duplication. I would say that the if the individual you are trying to ad does not have a headstone, he would not be on Debbie's list.

Just realized ... How appropriate that I should find you a new man on Antietam Day!

Capt. William H Simpson
Thanks for adding the photo and providing the bio info for Capt. William H. Simpson. He would be the cousin of my ancestor Eleazer Simpson (1846-1926. I was at Norwood Cemetery in July taking pix of anyone I thought might be distantly related & needed a pix for find a grave. If you know anyone that might be buried in nearby Little York cemetery wait a while so I can go thru my over 700 pix from yesterday & add them as well.

RE: Thaddeus S Jones
You are welcome Donald. The true location of the grave is Section 22, Row E, Plot 16. I've already submitted an edit to Find A Grave. He was in the index as T.S.Jones - that's why I didn't find him earlier.

RE: Photo of Thomas Blake
You are very welcome. We are trying to document all Civil War veterans buried in Iowa. I presume that you know about the SUVCW National Graves Registry. My husband adds all the names we find to that. The Iowa genweb is a great source for gravestone photos if you don't find them on Find A Grave. Feel free to use any of our photos.
