RE: George Simmons
I don't believe that any of those men is the George in Oak Hill Cemetery. But, I have another question that you might know the answer to. Somewhere in Texas is a college or university that has records which were kept by a doctor. Apparently, field doctors were supposed to send names, dates and causes of sickness/death to him. After the war, that doctor ended up in Texas, and there the records remain. Do you know of the place?

George Simmons
I came across the obit listing from the Prattville Progress of George Simmons, who died on the Wednesday before March 2, 1906 (I figured out that it would have been on Feb. 28 of that year). How would I find out if he served in the Civil War? His age was listed as 63 in the 1900 census, and I remember seeing that he had dates on his cemetery slab. The obit said that the family came from Butler Co. AL. No relatives were listed by name. The obit mentioned that he was connected to the local paper, so I wonder if in today's terminology, he might have been a war correspondent?

Andrew J. Simmons
Just thought you might get a chuckle out of this! I took the photo of A.J. and Andrew J. Simmons (A.J. is the footstone, Andrew is the headstone). He was buried by George Simmons. Since there were no dates, I tried to find him on a census. On the 1900 census, Andrew is listed as the brother of George, George being 63, while Andrew is 56 (if my math is right, he would be born about 1854). How young were they when in the military? Even stranger, we find that Andrew is a mail carrier, but he can't read or write! Thank goodness he can speak English!

RE: Betty Smith
Thank you, Anne, I appreciate the fast action :)
You and all the others do a terrific service. I think I would like doing this, but after wandering around the nearest cemetery, I don't know how you all find ANY one! lol

Sidney Smith
Were you the person who requested the photo of Sidney Smith's grave in the Oak Hill Cemetery of Autauga County, AL? I had taken a photo of S.A. Smith's grave with the birth and death dates as had
been requested. I even entered it. S.A. was the wife of B.F. Smith. When I read the write up for his grave site, I realized I had not gotten Sidney's grave, so I removed the photo and created a new image for B.F.'s wife. Apparently, Sidney was a Confederate soldier who went off with the Prattville Dragoons. I can still search the cemetery for Sidney's grave, even though it had not been found at the time of the cemetery project our genealogy society had done several years ago.

Are we related?
Anne, Hi, I'm Timothy Gould, great grandson of Thomie isora Bales married to Howard Marvin Gould..formerly "Gold" a few censuses earlier. I left a family tree of sorts on her dad, great, great grandpa Burl C Bales and noticed you left something and wondered if we were related or if he was someone in the civil war or something.. I'm really researching who his wife was..I know he was married to an Elmira and a Sylvanna A Barry...just not sure who thomie's mother was. Thomie also had a sister, Louanna. I know Burl and Elmira were married in 1887. Thommie Isora Bales and Howard Marvin Gould had three children, one is my grandpa, Bobby, who died in 2009. My grandmother still lives in Byng, Oklahoma. Well, hi from Oklahoma. You can reach me at

There are two obits in the Prattville Progress where George or GC are mentioned. Would you like them posted?
