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.

Pvt. Thomas McGonagle
Thank you Ted for transferring Thomas McGonagle's memorial to my care and for completing my requested edits. (All within a half hour of my message to you!) I greatly appreciate all your work on Find A Grave honoring our soldier ancestors. And again thank you for creating the beautiful Find A Grave memorial for my own ancestor Pvt.Thomas McGonagle who died in the Civil War at the Battle of Stones River.

Warm regards,
Mary Anne

William A. Hill #19037906
I ran across a small obituary for Pvt William A. Hill in the Harrisburg Telegraph of 11/14/1916. I thought you might like to see it. It gives a little glimpse into this veteran's life after his service in the Civil War.

Has he already been added to F-A-G? I wanted to make sure he wasn't one of the unknowns with a serial number? thank you.

Pennanas Lamb
Thank you for your information about P.Lamb and also Pennanas Lamb. I did find out he died in the General Hospital 21 but I wasn't sure where he would have been buried. I will add him to the Richmond Natl. Cemetery. Thank you.

Good morning Ted,

I just saw this and may have responded previously, but don't recall. I would be happy to handle the page if you would like to transfer it. Thanks.

Franklin Benjamin Clary # 87896927
There is a headstone and F.A.G. Memorial# 12498915 for this same person. I sent a suggestion to the contributor that maybe hers is just a "memorial" and he's buried in Gettysburg, but have not received any reply. Even her inscription is incorrect. She has "Died at Gettysburg", and it actually says "Fell at Gettysburg" and "In Loving Memory", which makes me believe he is in Gettysburg National Cemetery. So, my question is: Are you sure he is buried in this cemetery? I was not able to find him listed in the U.S. Dept. of Veterans Affairs National Cemetery grave site locator. Thanks, Lori
