Bio and Links
Bio Photo This is the officially authorized Contributor Page of the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War. We have joined as a contributor so that we can create and oversee a repository for memorials of Union Veterans who are not already managed by other Find-A-Grave contributors. We appreciate and welcome transfers from anyone who desires to place a memorial to a Union Veteran in our care.

We also welcome any biographical information that other contributors might wish to send us concerning the memorials in our care.

We will transfer memorials to other contributors in accordance with Find-A-Grave guidelines and are willing to consider the transfer of any particular memorial to any relative of that deceased soldier. If you wish us to transfer a memorial to you, send us a request through the Edit feature on the memorial you wish to acquire with an explanation of how you are related to the deceased veteran and why you desire a transfer. We reserve the right to deny requested transfers that are outside of Find-A-Grave guidelines for any reason.

If YOU are a member of the SUVCW or its allied orders and are interested in helping us with this project, we would appreciate receiving an email from you.

The Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War is a fraternal organization dedicated to preserving the history and legacy of heroes who fought and worked to save the Union. Organized in 1881 and chartered by Congress in 1954, we are the legal successor to the Grand Army of the Republic.

Oops, Shelia caught my typo/mistake--of course, he was born in 1837 or 1838 (not the 40s). No birth record is available in Jackson county for those years though, so I didn't send an edit. You could always add it to the bio as either year being possible, since it's just based on census reports.

Walter "Watt" Sorrels
Co B 81st ILL INF Unfortunately, his marker has no inscription. Death date on his pension card, born about 1847 in Jackson county. One of his sister's obits calls him Watson, but all other records including his military record give it as Walter. I will get a photo of the plot for you this weekend.

George Swetland/Portland Cemetery

George is already listed on Find a Grave. The name is spelled Swetland, someone put it down twice, under George Swetland and George Sweetland, the Sweetland is wrong.

Sincerely, Ron Kinney

You are quite welcome.

There was no mention of his military service on the pillar, by the way.

RE: John Vitty
Understood. But those are all unknown persons, right? So how can we say that John Vitty is there? Arlington National has no record for him.

RE: Charles Wesley Whitney
Yes, Charles is my 2x great grandfather.
I live in the same county in Indiana as he and his
family did and descendants still do.

RE: Charles A. Schmitz
I believe the memorial was merged, but it was removed from my memorial page. Would you please transfer it back to me so I can maintain it with the rest of Charles' family? Thank you kindly.

Always glad to help. I have photographed ALL of the 14000 Union graves at Andersonville National Cemetery and have the Historic Sites records here at my fingertips.
