|Bio and Links|
I am a retired Huntsville Alabama Police Officer. I have been a student of local history for many years. My main interests lie in Alabama Civil War Units. One of the saddest things about the Civil War was that so many young men left home and were never heard from again. Their families never knew how or where they died or where they were buried. Thanks to the work of many Findagrave contributors, I have reunited many of these brave men,if only in a virtual cemetery. These cemeteries are a constant work in progress. I welcome any and all info on any of my memorials and am always happy to transfer your kin folk. If you visit the memorial of any of these brave men, please honor them in any way you see fit. Whether or not you believe their cause was just, does not matter. What matters is that men from both sides fought and died protecting the only way of life they had ever known. "Alas! In how many Southern homes aching hearts waited through weary months for news of loved ones that never came until the suspense was replaced by the real certainty that the absent one had helped to swell the unknown dead of the Wheatfield, the Peach Orchard, or the Devil's Den of a Northern land."--J. Howard Wert. Sometimes I come home from work with a sore back or tired feet or maybe even a headache. Then I think of a 16 year old boy lying wounded in a dark field. He's hundreds of miles from home. He's thirsty,hungry and cold. He's crying for his Mama. Or I think of Robert and Sarah Milling, of Dallas County, who lost their five sons to the Confederate cause in the 20th Alabama Infantry. Suddenly, I don't feel so bad afterall. ********* I'm having some problems with my E-Mail and can't reply or send anything out. Please send me a public message through Findagrave if possible so I can respond back in a timely manner.*********|

|Chance Hudson||Pvt. William Gillespie Stuart|
My 4th great grandfather William Gillespie Stuart was a Private in Company K, 2nd Alabama Infantry. There's no marker but I found his muster roll. He's buried in Cedar Hill Cemetery in Scottsboro so if you like you can add him to the virtual cemetery for the 2nd AL Inf. The person who manages the memorial hasn't transferred him over to me yet.
|Nancy Cornelius||JH Wood|
Wondered if you know how I can get the dates of a J H WOOD find a grave memorial #67760541. This fellow is in the Wynnville cemetery in Blount Co. AL. I ran across this stone today and posted a picture, but it has no dates. Co E 45 AL INF is the inscription on his marker.
Thanks for your help.
|Chance Hudson||RE: Cedar Hill Cemetery Confederates|
Hutch, I am very grateful and I understand the fact that you have to work. I had thought about checking every male born between 1825-1844 buried there. I know a good deal that served but do not have a markers too like you said. I will take your advice and do some more digging and list compiling. I just didn't want to start that without looking for an easier route first. Thank you on behalf of Camp Col. Snodgrass #232 and the entire Sons of Confederate Veterans for what you do for our boys.

|Chance Hudson||Cedar Hill Cemetery Confederates|
I'm asking on behalf of the Sons of Confederate Veterans Col. Snodgrass #232 camp of Jackson County if you could somehow give me a list of every Confederate soldier in Cedar Hill cemetery in Scottsboro so that we could make a project out of decorating each grave with a battle flag and properly honoring our southern boys. I know this may be a lot to ask but you've compiled such impressive lists already that I know only you to ask this of. My email is displayed publicly on my profile and you can also reach me via a public message on here. Thank you.

|Jack||Norman Russell Stewart|
I am brand new to this site. I found the memorial page for my great great grandfather, Norman Russell "Snap" Stewart. He is buried at Beauvoir in Biloxi, Mississippi. All those "field trips" in school to this historic place, roaming the cemetery and passing by his headstone (I remember always searching for a Stewart, found this one, but never knew he was my grandfather) and discovered years later he was my ancestor. I've done some research on my family and have recently been linked to Norman Russell's "call to muster" card and other info while serving with Company D, 6th Alabama Infantry. When visiting Beauvoir (pre-Katrina) I was able to photograph his headstone and obtain a Bill of Sale for Items for his funeral.
Do you know how I may access his page so that I can update and add dates to this page? I read the original contributor for this page has passed....thanks so much for any and all help.

Thanks for your help!
|Nancy Cornelius||ER TAYLOR|
Hutch, Need your help with this CSA Soldier. I recently found a stone for this gentleman at Macedonia in Jackson Co. AL. Did not know if you followed his division or not but he was in Co B of the 38 Ala Inf. There is no memorial for him posted at this cemetery. He is next to a Nancy Taylor who's dates are 1834-1897. There are no dates on his military marker. I will try to look her up and see if I can find him, but knew you had done a lot for the civil war vets. Would like to complete his memorial if I could. Thanks for your help. If you want this memorial I will be glad to transfer.
|Darrell Landrum||J Brooks|
Hi Hutch, well I am finally getting back out to Old City with a new camera this time. I think I took a fairly good photo of this gentleman's grave marker and posted it to your memorial for him. Thank you for having the plot on your memorial, made it very easy for me to find.
Thanks for all the hard work compiling the burial information of our Confederate ancestors. My grand dad and his two oldest sons marched off to war with Co. K. of the 43rd Al. They all three made it home to Tuscaloosa Co. and subsequently moved to Texas. I have never been able to find their graves out in Texas,
but appreciate your efforts for those fortunate to know where their kin are buried.
Thanks again for all your efforts.
