Bio and Links
Bio Photo I began doing family genealogy over 30 years ago.After I retired from the military, I became very interested in the Civil War. I had visited many civil war cemeteries, and the many unknown soldiers buried in them. Every soldier who died in war for his country should be known and honored. And the families of the soldier should be able to know where he is buried, this has been my goal to provide that information to those who are searching for a soldier.

I spend a great deal of my time traveling to battlefields and cemeteries, and researching information on a soldier or person. If at anytime I can be of help or if you need more information please contact me. Or if you have more information on a soldier. If a correction needs to be made "PLEASE" contact me. Don't write an other "BIO" in the Flowers and Notes section of the Memorial. Leave a message or email me anytime.

I will tranfer memorials if it is a request made by a relative of a soldier. If you are not related please do not ask. If you have information in regards to a soldiers memorial I will be more then happy to add it.

"The Bivouac of The Dead"

The muffled drums sad roll's all beat
the soldier's last tatoo,
No more on life's parade shall meet
The brave and fallen few.

The neighing troop, the flashing blade,
The bugles stirring blast,
The charge,the dreadful cannonade,
The din and shout are past.

Rest on embalmed and sainted dead,
Dear as the blood ye gave,
No impious footstep here shall thread.
The herbage of your grave,

On fame's enternal camping ground,
Their silent tents are spread,
And glory guards with solemn round,
The bivouac of the dead.

No vision of the morrow's strife
The warrior's dream alarms,
No braying horn nor screaming fife
At dawn shall call to arms,

No rumor of the foe's advance
Now sweeps upon the wind,
No troubled thought at midnight haunts
Of love ones left behind,

Your own proud land's heroic soil
must be your fitter grave;
She claims from war his richest spoil,
The ashes of the brave.

-Theodore O'Hara-

Note: In making correction to memorials, I will make corrections, Birth dates, Death dates, Marriage dates add a spouse or children, if they have memorials, I will not add long Bio's, I just don't have the time. If you have a Bio I will be more then happy to transfer a memorial to you to add a bio, when finished just transfer it back. I spent a great deal of time traveling to battlefields and cemeteries which takes up a lot of my time, I would be greatful for any help you can give me in regards to memorials.

Lawrence Kearns
Hi, Ted,

Would you consider transferring Lawrence Kearns to me? As you probably remember, he is my great, great grand uncle. The cemetery was finally able to track down his marker this week. So delighted!

Thanks for your consideration!

Kind regards,
Nadine F. Ostrowski

Delancy Cole
I have created a biography for Delancy's widow here in Peekskill where she is buried
Eliza Conklin Cole and in my search for her husband who rode off never to return and never found located his death after capture and death and burial in the cemetery where you located him.
I wonder if we can merge our memorials so that he and his wife can finally be reunited?

David Niblo memorial 42515365
FYI, I posted a photo to the memorial you created for David Niblo (42515365) and requested from US Veteran's Affairs that they delete the memorial they had created for D H Niblo (3007545) as it is a duplicate and yours is more complete.

Michal H. Berkheimer Mem # 51431847
Hello, My name is Charles E. Harris. Michael H. is my GG Uncle. I am originally from Latrobe PA area. An Army Vet, retired in 1976 (27 yrs). I found another Mem for Michael #84298380 created by a person by the name of Linda Rose. He was born 12 Jan 1832. He died 8 Apr 1914. His sister Sarah Ann Berkheimer is my GG Grandmother 1829-1911. She was living in Latrobe but was staying with a Daughter and died at the town of Kreger PA. The funeral was held at her home Church in Latrobe. I cannot find where she is buried. Information which I have points to the fact they were full blood Shawnee Indians. Sarah was married to William C. Payne 1821-1898 who also served with Co C, 84 PA Vol Regt. He is buried in Machesneytown Cem near Latrobe PA. The Father of Michael was Lewis Berkheimer 1805-1887. The Mother was Anna Mary Hysong. Children were: Sarah Ann, Michael, Jacob, David, Margaret, Mary Ellen, and William. I also have some dates on them and I have an old picture of the Payne Family minus William Jr and William Sr.
