As a lifetime history buff, and having lived near some old cemeteries, it is only "natural" that the two are now combined.
I've catalogued all the Confederate fallen in the Spotsylvania Confederate Cemetery in Spotsylvania Courthouse, Va. I will soon publish a roster/book with these findings and short bios/service records of these men. A copy will be presented to the Spotsylvania Courthouse Museum.
Also, I'm in the process of doing the same for the Confederate fallen and veterans in the Fredericksburg Confederate and City cemeteries.
As Historian of the above cemeteries, please feel free to inquire of any Confederate burials.
Also, I give tours of each.
The Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania County Battlefields National Park Service refers Confederate burial inquiries to me.

|Michael Gaines||RE: James Clark|
It came from a family tree on ancestry.com; unsure of their source.
|David Lacy||Pvt Richard Hammond Key|
An innocent oversight on my part as well, for the same credit needs to be added to the Cenotaph memorial for Pvt Key. Memorial #12464370
|David Lacy||Pvt Richard Hammond Key|
I am sure it is only an innocent oversight that on your memorial for Pvt Richard Hammond Key (31354036) you use in your "(bio by: BigFrench)" a rather long quotation of Phoebe Yates Pember from chapter 11 in her 1879 publication - "A Southern Woman's Story" and do not credit her extraordinary contribution to what we know of the burial circumstances of Pvt Key. I'm confident you will be willing and able to correct this unintentional omission.
|Kathy W. Johnson||RE: Mary Louise Fletcher Garnett|
If ancestry's relationship chart is correct, we are 1st cousins 4 X's removed! We both descend from the Baker family of Frederick, VA.
Thanks so much for the corrections!
|John Curtis||RE: Welford Embrey|
Dan, I appreciate you response and link. Would you believe that I had the record. Have you by any chance been able to locate a birth certificate for Welford? I haven't been able to find anything. One reason I would like to find one is this. I have found a Strother Embrey, born right around 1800. He had someone in the census with the name Wilford. That may have been a transcription error as it could have been Welford. The peculier thing about it is he is the same age as Welford. Coincidence? I would think the government record of his military service would have been correct. Your thoughts?
|John Curtis||Welford Embrey|
Big French, How sure are you that Welford's parents were henry and Louise? I had his parents as Strother and Mary, but after seeing your entry on find a grave I think you may be correct, but now can't figure out where Strother fits into the family. Can you help?
|Gale Kell||George Franklin Elrod|
I'm so sorry to learn that there's no grave or marker for him. His brother , William Boyd Elrod, is buried in the Confederate Cemetery in Savannah. He died in a hospital shortly after being injured in the battle of Gettysburg. He is one of the very few who were identified. A picture of his headstone is shown on his Find A Grave Memorial page.
Another of his brothers who fought in the Civil War (although not in Gettysburg) was Andrew Elrod. He's buried in the Dry Pond Methodist Church Cemetery in Jackson/Banks County, Georgia. He was my Great Grandfather.
A brother, Isaac, fought as well . He's supposedly buried in the Old Dry Pond cemetery, which is near the church.
|Jane Feldmann Cook||RE: Mr & Mrs Eberenz|
Thanks for reminding me about the other two. I just changed the photo for Anna and John Eberenz. Let me know how it looks. I live my life on my iPad so they always look straight for some reason. Jane
|Jane Feldmann Cook||RE: Eberenz Monument pic rotation|
I just tried it again. Let me know if it looks better to you. ( it shows up straight on my computer so I can't check it.) Thanks for your help.
