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.

Hi BigFrench, I'm not the creator of that memorial or maintain it. I just do a lot of research on a few of my ancestors and I came across Mr.Putnam's memorial. I'll let that creator know your information. Hopefully they will do correct info as burial unknown. Thanks again for your sincere interest. Take care, Tania

Thank you so much for your hard work and research for Mr.Cross. It is very important what you discovered because many of us descendants will drive across many states to visit an ancestors grave site. That can be very misleading having so many of our ancestors in wrong burial location. Burial unknown is the best and honest option on these type of memorials. I appreciate what your efforts and information very much! Tania

Dan, If you would like to keep the family together, I will gladly transfer the Kilby memorial. Martha
|Anonymous||William B Settle|
I took a picture of his gravestone and was looking to make sure I had the dates right when I found your memorial for him. He has a death record that gives his birth and death and the locations of each. It also has his father and mother listed as Turner Settle and Elizabeth Grigsby. The certificate states that he was to be buried at home. So they either changed their minds or had him moved to Fairview at a later date. I added the correct date and the location of his birth in an edit. Thanks, Martha
|David Smith||RE: William T. Haner|
Happy to transfer mgt to you. I am working on a LONG term project updating Find A Grave to Spring Hill Cemetery's directory. Did you previously contact me? I got an email and apparently deleted it. Very sorry if it was you. Spent my first 57 years in Calif, never surfed and followed my kids to VA. Coincidentally my family roots go back several generations here. Dave
|Colapop||RE: Pvt Nathan C Herring, Jr|
Nathan was my GG Uncle. The information comes from
notes in a Herring Family Bible that I now possess. I believe the notes were entered by my Great Aunt Jessie, daughter of J. O. Herring, Nathan's brother.
J. O. served in the NC 38th INF. Company C (joining after Gettysburg) His brother Lucien also served.
I feel sure that the information that I provided is accurate.

Thank you so much for your bio on my ancestor. Hardly any information was available about him. He is one of 6 brothers who fought in the Civil War. Only one survived.

|Lakegirl317||RE: Captain Washington Shooter|
Frank Ford is the the grandson of Henry P Ford, who was 1st cousin to the Shooter brothers. I am Robin Hayes Gough, great great-granddaughter of John Neil Ford, who was 1st cousin to the Shooter brothers.
Therefore, Frank is 1st cousin, 2x removed to Washington Shooter and I am 1st cousin, 4x removed to Washington Shooter.
I hope this is what you are looking for. If not, just let me know. On behalf of the family, we appreciate the work you do.
As a side question, do you ever conduct research in the area for folks? My great grandfather, John D Hays (Hayes), Sr went to fight in the civil war up in VA and the last account I have of him was in February 1865. I can't find where he ever returned home. He is not buried in the family cemetery (Elvington Cemetery in Lake View, SC) with his wife and no one seems to know anything. It would mean a great deal to me to find out the rest of his story. My direct contact information is Lakegirl317@gmail.com.
Thanks again for the work you do for so many veterans. God bless you.
