Bio and Links
Bio Photo My work on the Confederate section of Old City Cemetery is my primary goal at this time. This is a labor of love and I will not stop til it is complete. If you take photos in the Confederate section to post a memorial here, please check, double check and triple check before posting. There are a lot of errors in the records and a number of the stones are incorrectly marked. I will be posting memorials for soldiers in the Confederate section based on how their names are written down in the Diuguid records as those records seem to be the first place most people turn to for identifying a soldier. I will also post the correct name of any soldier based on unit records or any other information you may pass on to me with the correct spelling of a soldier's name. A HUGE thank you goes out to find-a-grave member LJH for all of the help in correctly identifying the men!

I put a lot of effort into taking good quality photos. These last couple of years have been a learning experience, but I think I have got the hang of it, finally. I hope you don't mind my posting a photo to your memorial, even though you may already have one or more up. If you do not want my photo on your memorial, please let me know and I will remove it. It is so very important to me to take a good quality photo as I want to make sure the info I put on a memorial is correct on the chance that a family member will find the information and be able to use it. I always spend a little extra time wiping off grass clippings or bird poop, but that is all. Sunny days are best for a good photo, morning shadows really make a stone pop. Photoshop is your friend as well :)

RE: Error
Darrel, I wish I knew the answer but sorry I don't. I have ran across similar problems with some of my own ancestors. The use of initials makes it very difficult to decipher which one is who.

Thanks very much for the headstone image. To bad it does not show his birth and death dates.
