RE: May family headstone photos
Phil,

I'm transferring my memorials to those who would like to have them. I have a lot of them in Westview, Atlanta. If there is something you'd like to have, send a list of memorial numbers and the names and I'll send their care over to you. Do it quickly though...I'm about to only manage my own family members.
Take care,
Grave Whisperer

Yes. Almost every one that died in Vicksburg between the creation of the cemetery and the end of the Civil War are buried in the Vicksburg City Cemetery. Rich - Poor, Black - White, Slave - Free, Yankees - And many,many Confederates
At least Three Confederate Generals
General Green from Missouri Killed in June 1863, and buried in his friends the Marshall Plot, Still there we think. No Grave Stone, has Memorial in Soldiers rest.
General Tilghman killed at Champions Hill, brought to Vicksburg, buried in the Searles Plot, His family had his remains disinterred about 1910 and moved to the Family Plot in Brooklyn, or Bronx, New York
General Bowen died and was buried about 20 Eastward from Vicksburg and buried in a back yard, Disinterred by the Vicksburg Confederate Ladies Cemetery Association and moved to Soldiers Rest.
After the Siege The VLCCA gathered up many that had been buried where they fell and moved them to Soldiers Rest. Thus almost all the Confederates are buried out there at least 95 percent maybe 98 percent.
And I do not mean in Soldiers Rest nor the Cemetery, but in the general vacinity

RE: Levi Holland - 148124946
I have done very little. I checked Soldiers Rest in the Vicksburg City Cemetery and so far as I can determine, he does not have a stone. Also, and mostly, I read the Bio information that you furnished on the F - a - G Memorial. It states he died in St Mary Parish, Lousisina, which is a long way and has no connection with Vicksburg. would seem logical to me that He is buried somewhere around Bisland. If you have information that he is buried in vicksburg, let me know and will look further,

Thank you for the offer but not necessary to transfer, I am attempting to link our large and sometimes confused Fisher family at Find A Grave.
Thanks again,
Bill

Dr. Henry Thomas Fisher Mem. #132499351
Sir,
I am at a loss. I've not asked that any names or dates be changed, only that Henry Thomas Fisher be linked to his parents: Henderson H. Fisher Mem. #31260883 and Rebecca A. Godbehere Fisher Mem. 31260681. I am a Fisher descendant of this line and have carefully researched this branch for a number of years. However, if you insist there is no connection I will not pursue this further.

RE: Olivia A. Morrow, nee Burton
Hi Phil, Happy to hear from you. I have not seen your restoration yet. I do not have family left in Morrow to visit but do need to make a trip to Bunkie in days to come so will make a point of going to see your project.
No, I have not run into Olivia. Looking at her death date, I would not be surprised if she may be in one of the cemeteries in Pointe Coupee.
My ggrandfather, Reuben Adkins, is listed in Pointe Coupee even though, I believe the family was in Washington, La. at the time of his death.
I cannot find his gravesite but have my own theory.
One of the churches, St. Ann's I believe, the original was lost to the Mississippi River...church and cemetery.
There are many Catholic Churches in PC. She is not listed in Find A Grave but that does not mean anything. I see that some cemeteries are still being transcribed.
I will keep my eyes open and good luck to you. Keep an eye for my great grandfather too.
BTW....I have an old letter late 1800's written from Morrow to my GAunt in Upshur county Texas by a MM Morrow. Female...Must be related to you. I will look for it. Barbara
