|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.|

Better news. I ran across additional documentation. People interpreted the number wrong. The 7 was actually a 1. His infantry was actually the 10th, not the 70th. No wonder we couldn't find a 70th. Hope this helps in the search. Thanks again for your help!

|Lynne Belcher Burgess RN||RE: Transfer|
I've just come across Civil War Widow Pension papers on George Washington Martin (82156274) who you were kind enough to transfer to me yesterday. It does not match the memorial data you have listed. My GW Martin was a private in Co. K, 70th Ga. regiment. I'm so sorry I didn't have this info before now. Please advise on what you think would be best to do. Any chance you have data on my GW's death during the war? I have no idea about researching this sort of thing.
