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.

Thanks for the updated info on Gideon M H Freeman. I made the correction to his memorial. Appreciate your help.
|Dal Mallory||RE: Emmaus Christian Church|
Which Emmaus? If one in Caroline Co., VA it no longer exists, none of the graves are marked.

Thanks for the message regarding the above duplicate memorial. I totally missed it when searching the Find A Grave database, I suppose because I searched for the name as it appears on the stone as per Find A Grave rules. This is an former Stars and Bars memorial, I suppose? In any event, I will delete mine.

You are welcome!
Glad to help.

Depending on relationships and individual personalities, sometimes it is the surviving wife who writes the obit, omitting information that would be meaningful to others. (Am sure you know that.) Happy to transfer management to you.

We were so glad to see your name for the confederate grave photo!
We have missed your findagrave requests this summer. We worry that the stones are wearing and will become illegible. We would love to help take many more of the cemetery photos.
Photos 4 You.
