You are most welcome for the photographs. Please, feel free to use them any way you wish. I'm glad I was able to assist you.
|Carol Robertson White||Joseph Birtley Wright|
Left a photo and bio on your memorial for the following: Joseph Birtley Wright, a minister and native of Randolph County, Missouri, was a resident of Pettis County when he enlisted in the Confederate army on January 1, 1862, in Springfield, Missouri. He served as a private in Company G, 5th Missouri Infantry and participated in several actions, then was promoted to chaplain of the 1st Missouri Cavalry in 1863. In 1864, he is listed in official records as chaplain of General Francis M. Cockrell’s First Missouri Brigade.
“Lizzie accept this as a token of esteem and fidelity from J. B. Wright” is written on the back of the photograph. No further information is available on the identity of Lizzie.
The 1st Missouri Cavalry was organized on December 30, 1861, with the majority of its members transferring from the Missouri State Guard. They fought at Pea Ridge and Vicksburg, where they surrendered on July 4, 1863; in September 1863 they were considered exchanged and re-entered the Confederate army by consolidating with the 3rd Missouri Cavalry.

You photographed her tombstone at Staley Mound cemetery, but her death date is unreadable. If you have the opportunity to go back there, do you think you might try to clear away enough of the growth to possibly give me a clue as to when she may have died? She is part of my husband's family that originated in Ohio. Unfortunately I haven't found her marriage record to Josiah, so I am still clueless as to her maiden name.
I've put through request for another photo with the request to see if the death date can be seen in case you want to go shag that photo request.

I just now added my photo of Nathan Carey's grave at Fairview Cemetery in Kearney to fulfill the photo request I had claimed for "micosay."
After I had added the photo, I later noted that you had also added two photos yesterday.
I am going to leave my photo on his memorial as it was taken to fulfill his photo request which I had claimed several days ago. Micosay is a friend of mine for whom I have been taking photos while he is sick.
Let me know one of these days when you are going to be here in Kearney, and I will catch up with you guys to say hi.

If you would like me to transfer Kay to you, I would be happy to do so.
