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).

RE: FAG 17933308
Goodness goodness. You're right. I thought the photo was a panorama shot of the cemetery and didn't look at it closely. I'm not use to seeing photos of gravestones taken from 50-75 feet away. Will make a separate memorial for Isaac P. of Maine and transfer over at the same cemetery as inferred by the obit. Thanks for looking closer.

As the above memorial, as well as of his wife, have been restructured, you can put the veteran card back on Isaac P. Allen's memorial.

Hello Steve,

Regarding your attachments to the above memorial and also to his wife, they refer to a different Isaac P. Allen and wife Elizabeth than the memorials currently claim. The data has been partially manipulated to refer to a completely different Isaac P. Allen and wife Elizabeth. The current memorial and his wife have been transferred to me and I will be fixing both to reflect the correct identity of the person your attachments refer to. In addition, the memorial is linked to a purported mother, who was not the mother of the person. your attachments are concerned with. Check back in a few days as I have figured out who his parents and wife were. Regards.

I'm interested in an Isaac Patten Allen and his wife Elizabeth Cram Fuller who were also residents of Sam Francisco. However, Isaac Patten Fuller was born at Mass. in 1847, married a wife b. at NH in 1849, was a lineal descendant of Edward Fuller of the Mayflower, and her husband Isaac P. was still living at San Fran in 1922.

The present memorial, and related obituary, concern an Isaac P. Fuller b. in 1833 at Bowdoin, ME, his wife Elizabeth was born at ME in 1845 and they married of record at Bowdoinham, ME in 1869.

Hi Steve,

I took your photo today but think you have the wrong Robert Speddy. I posted the Soldiers' Home record which agrees with the plot and headstone. I sent you several edits to make the memorial agree with the grave but it's not the guy you think.

Best regards,
Wade Davis

Shilling Burials - Smartsville, CA
I believe that Charles Shilling is buried at the Smartsville Fraternal Cemetery, not the Smartsville Cemetery. There are at least four cemeteries in that area but for some reason people have lumped them together even though they are separate and in different locations.
Charles Shilling is listed here but no dates are indicated. I would assume that Alta Shilling was buried at the same cemetery:
