My Virtual Cemeteries.

Union Veterans.
As the Graves Registration Officer for Cochise County, Arizona, for the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War (SUVCW), I research Union veterans of Cochise County. This takes me all over the United States. What I find that is not already posted I share with Find-A-Grave. Union virtual cemeteries include:
- Members of Tombstone's Burnside Post, G.A.R.
- Members of Bisbee's Kehoe/Stebbins Post, G.A.R.
- Officers who served at Fort Mason, Arizona Territory, during the Civil War
- Veterans of the Native California Cavalry (a Spanish language Civil War regiment)
- California Volunteers during the Civil War

"Siemsen Kin" Virtual Cemetery.
Deceased members of the Siemsen-Neuhoefel-Lemburg clans that originated in Dithmarschen, Schleswig-Holstein, Germany. To recall Dithmarschen's years as an independent republic (1227-1559) the Dithmarschers used to inscribe 'Ditmarsia Libera Fuit' (Latin: 'Dithmarschen was free') on buildings, boundary markers, pottery, and grave stones. I have included it at the bottom of memorials for those who were born in Dithmarschen. (

Casillas-Lugo Virtual Cemetery.
"Hey, what about my family?" OK, dear, here they are! Many of them were early Hispanic pioneers of (Alta) California and Arizona (pre-1848).

Winfield's memorial
Hi Scott,

Thank you so much. I'm not sure about how to get the marker. Can you direct me on where to start?

Winfield Scott's family
Hi Steve,

I finally found the mother of Winfield Scott Fritz!

Susanna Faust Fritz. Her memorial # is 142815175 Vine St. Cem., Hazleton Luzerne Co., Pa

Can you please attached her to her son Winfield Scott's memorial #65816602 at Lone Mountain, Cochise Co. Az.?

Also, I was wondering if you know if his tombstone is in a cemetery or at some other location? I thought I remembered reading it was some kind of memorial temporary grave-sites, but I can't find where I read that. I was hoping you might know! If there is no stone a few of us descendants may put together some kind of lasting memorial for the 4 murdered victims. I'm in So. Cal. so a trip there will be a bit easier then everyone else!

I look forward to hearing from you again.

Duplicate: Eleazer Huntington (1766 - 1830) - North Winham Cemetery

Thanks for your note alerting me. Since February 2014, there have been two memorials in North Windham Cemetery for Eleazer Huntington (1766 - 1830), but prior to that, only the one I manage and created in 2011. This happens when an earlier memorial is created with burial location "unknown" and no cemetery initially indicated OR is placed in the wrong cemetery then moved to the correct one later after the unwitting duplicate. In 2011, I checked to see none was there prior to my creation. The person with the older Eleazer Huntington memorial didn't contact me in Feb 2014 - and just made a black/white version of the color photo on mine and placed on his older memorial of 2008 - thus he was aware of the conflict from the get-go. He refused to delete his. As I think the so-called "merged" memorials by F-A-G are less than satisfactory, I'm willing to delete the one I created for my 4th gr-grandfather ONLY after all links and information on mine are incorporated into or recreated (flowers) onto his. That process is slow but underway. I can't tell if he is a "batch uploader" of merely names, then places them in correct cemeteries later - or whether this was an honest mistake. From the volunteer photos taken, guessing he lives in Virginia - but there are some photos from Windham Co. - but again, not for this. He may/may not be related and I always bias family in these situations, regardless of F-A-G guidelines which are merely suggestions and not rules. Put the memorial in the hands of those who care most and will best maintain it long term.

Again, only after all information on mine is on his, will I delete mine. Thanks for calling this duplicate to my attention.

Find A Grave Memorial# 3951415
I am conflicted about what to do about your edit of Edwin Eleazer Huntington - Find A Grave Memorial# 3951415. Someone already submitted a family link for his father (Find A Grave Memorial# 78574777). Not sure if I should change the father to your suggested edit (Find A Grave Memorial# 28237725). Why are there two different memorials for Eleazer Huntington, III?

Hello Steve,

I have found some information you have left on Wayman family memorials.

Daughter of William Henry Wayman (1840-1887) and Matilda Parris (1842-1915). Grand-daughter
of Thomas G. Wayman (# 64365736) and Mary Kelly (#64365868)

Because I have yet to verify all the children and grandchildren, I'd love to get in touch with you further.

I am not direct in the family line, it is my late husband's linage, but I still research for our children and grandchildren.

Thank you
Gaye Hill wife of
