|Pat Gardner||Peter Hauser, #17178642|
His tombstone has G. Peter on it which is George Peter Hauser (Georg Petrus in German). Will you edit the name on the memorial to reflect this.
|Robin Arvickson||Grave of Sanford Snider|
I'm working on a volume of grave locations for veterans of Co. L, 22nd NC Infantry. Could I have your permission to use the picture you posted of Sanford Snider's grave in this compilation? I will cite you as the source, but I need your name. My e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
|Mary Stewart||Re: Family of Yancy B. and Naomi C.|
My grandmother was the wife of Paul W. Ballinger, son of Cyrus C. Ballinger. Paul was dead before I was born. I had been told that he died in WWII, but could never find anything. Finally I was able to locate his death record. He died in Missouri on a train en route to deployment. He and my grandmother had no children. I noticed on his death certificate that he had been born in El Paso, Texas, my home town. Cyrus C. Ballinger and wife, Phoenia Weckerle had several children from 1902 to 1912, but both the parents died before 1919. The remaining living children, including Paul were farmed out to various families and virtually impossible to trace.
One day I took my students to the Historic Cemetery in this town to visit the graves and to hear ghost stories. As we neared the grave of John Wesley Harding, I tripped over a grave site, and there I met Paul Ballinger's parents. I am getting their graves connected and will connect Cyrus C. Ballinger to his parents.
Children of Yancy Ballinger and Naomi Ballinger include:
Laura Ballinger Winston b. 1850 *
Nereus Allen Ballinger b. 1852 (Allen Nevus, A.N., Nevus?)**
Julia Ballinger Winston b. 1855 *
Cyrus C. Ballinger b. 1858
Dora Lacordine Ballinger b. 1861 *
Mary Ballinger Yates b. 1864 *
Caroline Ballinger b. 1866
*buried this cemetery **Family of wife Dora Taylor Ballinger is here, but husband Neurus is not found

The pic of the grave is of a Douglas F Peterson with different birthday and day of death carved into the stone. Do you have a pic of Douglas F Peterson with B: 1-12 1895 and D: 5-27-1947? Thank you.

Thanks for transferring management of Edward's memorial! :) Donna
|Cheryl||RE: Calvin Heagey|
I just figured out the problem. There are two memorials for Calvin Heagey in findagrave. It is the other one that has him buried at Elias Cemetery in Emmitsburg, MD which is incorrect. I must have selected the wrong one when I posted my edit. Sorry.

Thanks for making this memorial, and thanks for transferring it. I'll work on a biography for her.
OK No Problem
|Apollymi||RE: Alex Harvey 36586071|
My apology. The edit was to add mother Mattie Burton Harvey. I was looking at this late last night and saw Mamie and just glancing at my e-mail.

|Carl Ingwalson||RE: Thompson Spottswood|
No. For the past 25 years I have researched his regiment and know more than any sane person would be interested in. After the regiment was mustered in on 09/09/62, Thompson was the first to die although one was discharged due to a preexisting condition and three had deserted. Measles spread rapidly among men closely confined in the barracks at Camp Franklin and several more deaths soon followed that were related to measles they had contracted while in training. Thompson's prior service with the 1st Infantry, a 90-day regiment, no doubt helped secure a commission for him when he reenlisted. He wasn't with the regiment very long, but if I can provide more information, let me know.
