|Bio and Links|
I am a retired Huntsville Alabama Police Officer. I have been a student of local history for many years. My main interests lie in Alabama Civil War Units. One of the saddest things about the Civil War was that so many young men left home and were never heard from again. Their families never knew how or where they died or where they were buried. Thanks to the work of many Findagrave contributors, I have reunited many of these brave men,if only in a virtual cemetery. These cemeteries are a constant work in progress and a tedious undertaking. If you have a relative that has not yet been included, please let me know and it would be my honor to add them. I welcome any and all info on any of my memorials and am always happy to transfer your kin folk. If you visit the memorial of any of these brave men, please honor them in any way you see fit. Whether or not you believe their cause was just, does not matter. What matters is that men from both sides fought and died protecting the only way of life they had ever known. "Alas! In how many Southern homes aching hearts waited through weary months for news of loved ones that never came until the suspense was replaced by the real certainty that the absent one had helped to swell the unknown dead of the Wheatfield, the Peach Orchard, or the Devil's Den of a Northern land."--J. Howard Wert. Sometimes I come home from work with a sore back or tired feet or maybe even a headache. Then I think of a 18 year old boy lying wounded in a dark field. He's hundreds of miles from home. He's thirsty,hungry and cold. He's crying for his Mama. Or I think of Robert and Sarah Milling, of Dallas County, who lost their five sons to the Confederate cause in the 20th Alabama Infantry. Suddenly, I don't feel so bad afterall.|

Back in Jun I offered you some proposed text for Wesley Bradford, Find A Grave Memorial# 153167838. When you have a minute, would you look that over and see whether you'd like to use it?
All the best,

Thanks so much for transferring this memorial to me and for all the hard work you do in remembrance of our Confederate Soldiers.
|JP Calhoun||32d Alabama|
Thank you for doing this for the Alabama units. My great- great uncle is buried at the Confederate cemetery in Oak Woods, Chicago, IL. He died in the Camp Douglas POW camp in 1865. His name was Lewis J. Calhoun of the 32d AL INF. Captured at Resaca, GA
Another ancestor who I'm still searching for is John Rambo of the 17th AL INF. He was killed at the Battle of Rasaca, GA in 1864.
Ironically enough the Calhouns and Rambos didn't actually meet until 100 years later.
|Memory Keeper||Civil War Veterans|
Thank you so much for your work on the many forgotten men of our country.

First, thanks for adding my GG grandfather to your virtual cemetery.
Second, and I should have explained this when I made such a minor edit request on the above memorial. The search engine would not pick the name up even though it would pick up a very similar name. The period after the "A" seemed to fix it.
Thanks for your understanding and please keep the hard work up.
|Jan J. Shultz||Burrell Brewer|
Thanks for the transfer of Burrell Brewer.
