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.

Charles E. June
I made two mistakes. I was trying to add a flag for Clarence D. June and I added it to Charles E. June. Twice. Could you deleted them? Thanks, Sorry

Gettysburg relatives
I do love visiting two uncles, Alonzo Cushing and Charles LeClear. I am so very grateful to know where they are buried, and where they both fell.

RE: David Smith 155th PA
I am headed for Gettysburg next week but would like to check out whether the cemeteries on Find A Grave are correct. Three cemeteries in the same location?

RE: David Smith 155th PA
I am sorry there is not a stone, I was looking forward to being able to provide you with one next week. I was happy with John's note, and thought perhaps you could include it for the bio, to me (and hopefully the powers to be) that is proof enough that Davis is there, along with hundreds upon thousands of other unknowns. Anyone who has been to Gettysburg would not doubt it for a minute. Life changing experience.

James Y. Clark
This man is my direct 2xggf. The gravestone is correct with his middle initial being a "Y" but the header on the page from this website is Pvt James G. Clark which is wrong. Can the website administrator please correct the middle initial, making it a "Y" not a "G" as it is presently. Thanks

At the Myerstown Cemetery you have a doupie. yours #19879188 Jan.14,2007 & #14661022 June 20,2007 are the same person, as the wrong date of birth may be the problem. Could you combine the 2 as the other memorial
contributor is inactive. I will add more on him as well! Thanks Harry

RE: Mary Sargeant
Hi Ted,
My pleasure, regarding the sponsorship. Mary is my 8-great-grandmother, and I am gradually trying to sponsor my direct ancestors. Cheers!

John Cobb
Dear Mr. Myers, I noted with delight your entry for John Cobb in Danville National Cemetery. He was the brother of my great-great-grandfather, Perry Cobb. I would like to suggest a correction for the middle name. The initial should be G, not B. I suspect the entire name was Godfrey since his grandparents were John Cobb and Desire Godfrey. I have been looking for information on Pvt. Cobb and it seems, as you indicate, that he is one of the 140+ "unknowns" in the Danville Cemetery. Thank you for your kindness. Best wishes, Natalie J. Woodall, PhD
