|Bio and Links|
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.
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.

|Natalie Woodall||John Cobb|
Dear Mr. Myers, I noted with delight your entry for John Cobb in Danville National Cemetery. He was the brother of my great-great-grandfather, Perry Cobb. I would like to suggest a correction for the middle name. The initial should be G, not B. I suspect the entire name was Godfrey since his grandparents were John Cobb and Desire Godfrey. I have been looking for information on Pvt. Cobb and it seems, as you indicate, that he is one of the 140+ "unknowns" in the Danville Cemetery. Thank you for your kindness. Best wishes, Natalie J. Woodall, PhD
|Leeann Stebbins||George W. Canterbury|
First let me thank you for all the hard work you do on Find a Grave for the veterans. I am contacting you regarding my great-great-grandfather's grave, George W. Canterbury-
# 96771386. I would like to have his last name corrected to "Canterbury", and also his date of birth to Nov 7, 1828. The date of death is correct. Once these corrections have been made, I will add his wife, and link his children. Thank you so much!
Thanks..I made a memorial for him.

Thank you so much for adding the memorial for William Lucas. I have looked for his burial place for many many months and just discovered the Stones River Cemetery. He is a brother to my great grandfather. If you would consider a transfer, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you again for taking the time and adding memorials. Karen

Thank you for transferring his memorial. I will honor him.
|Karl Stelly||RE: James Gallagher|
Yes, it looks good now. Thanks for the help!
Hi Ted, I've submitted the dates via the memorial and sent you an email explaining the issues. Thanks for your reply!

After taking a picture of the PA Monument at Culpeper National Cemetery for someone I decided to check all those listed on the plaque that names PA Civil War dead. According to this plaque Franklin served in H co 63rd Infantry. This may help you find more information about him.
|Blakesley Richard||Peter John Finger|
Ref. mem. #1081681512
Peter is my 2x great grandfather, I found a web site listing of people buried in Yorktown Cemetery, but not his name. Could you tell me the source of your information about his burial ? I plan on going there in Feb. If I find his grave I will photograph it & add it to the memorial.
Many Thanks for your work
