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.

Thank you!
Hi Ted, today I found a memorial that you created for one of my family members that had been KIA and wanted to say thank you. I am also a retired 21 year military veteran so it means a lot to me that his sacrifice is honored. The work you do is outstanding! Best regards, RC

Hi Ted,
I'm Martha Jane Jones from Blountville, TN. My husband is Wayne Arthur Jones and he is looking for information on his great grandfather John Jones, born 1835 in Wales who was married to Catharine Clark from England. They lived in Braddock, PA in 1880 census and Catharine Clark Jones supposedly is buried in Braddock Cemetery.
Noticed that you have Catharine Clark's father Thomas Clark's memorial on Find a Grave. Do you have any information on where Thomas Clark is buried in Braddock Cemetery?
Thanks for your help.

Hi Ted, I was curious about the burial of this gentleman in Old City. He was a local gentleman and his wife Nannie is buried in Presbyterian here in Lynchburg. His name is spelled Albon on her grave marker. If you found some sort of death record for him, might it say whether he was in fact buried in Presbyterian? There is an unmarked grave beside her, no record of who might be resting there. Am hoping you might be able to find some record of his being buried here in Lynchburg or in Amherst. Difficult mystery.

RE: Unknown Soldiers marker
You are most welcome. It's the least I can do. Thank you so much for all the hard work and dedication you have put into trying to give names to all those "unknown" men who died in war. They may be listed as unknown, but they had names. They had lives and families and stories that are worth remembering and honoring, no matter which side of the conflict they gave their loyalty and service to.

The fact that you are working so tirelessly to try to give them back the dignity of their names, and give their descendants the chance to finally know where their loved one is buried is so wonderful.

Thank you again for all that you do, and to all the other men and women working so hard to make sure each and every one of these men is remembered.

RE: Unknown Soldiers marker
Ted, of course you are welcome to use the photos. Please let me know if the versions I have added to the unknown soldier's memorials on Find A Grave are good enough. If you need them larger, I do have the originals on my other computer and could email those to you if you wished.

RE: Facebook page to unknowns
You know what you should do? If you're creating a Facebook page to unknowns, you should put a link to it right here... there's a place in "edit your profile" where you can put a web link to your website, right there under your email address.

RE: Photo
I wouldn't mind photo credit, but that's not really important. Short answer, yes you can use my pictures for whatever you like, my pleasure.
