Bio and Links
Bio Photo I (on the right) am a member of the Sons of Confederate Veterans, Private Lorenzo Leigh Bennitt Camp #773 in Durham, North Carolina. I am a member of the Point Lookout POW Descendants Organization. My wife and I have been doing genealogy together for almost 20 years. It is our passion. Through my genealogy work I have identified over 900 kinfolk (grandfathers, uncles, and cousins) that served in the Confederate States infantry, cavalry, and navy.

My loving wife and best friend Joyce passed away on Christmas Day 2012 after a battle with pancreatic cancer. When I return to taking my trips to libraries, archives, and cemeteries to continue my genealogy research it will be very difficult without my better half. We worked so well as a team. I miss her. Her memorial is #102701133.

Yes John am well aware of it..sorry about you losing your wife.
He is my my 4th or 5th g-grandfather. If you notice the other one and check her page she has not been active for a long long time (at least since 2010). I tried for over a year with no response. I suppose if you wish you can report it, it would be a shame to have a bare memorial for Alexander.

Pvt John L Martin
Hi John, I posted a photo of the common burial area marker where Pvt Martin is buried in Old City Cemetery, Confederate section. A little tough to see his name as the sun was not cooperating, but he is 5th from the bottom on the marker. One of the people at Old City told me that this large marker was cheaper to purchase than individual markers, hence all the soldiers in Lot 178 have their names listed. If I remember correctly, this marker was put up early in the 20th Century, 1920ish.

Best regards,

Mr Nash

I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your wife. I saw where you had provided information to another member and I wanted to thank you for all your hard work on Find A Grave. I saw on that post where you are the 5th ggrandson of Capt. William Wood. I was just wondering if you are related to Capt Henry C Nash of Co A 16th Georgia Volunteer Infantry? Company A was organized at Madison County, GA and was aka "Madison Greys." Captain Nash was killed at the Battle of Fort Sanders Knoxville TN.

I wanted to let you know that I am researching the 16th and during that process trying to locate the gravesites of as many men as possible. Although I have not yet located his grave, I have created a memorial for Captain Nash. If you are related, I am happy to transfer it to you.

Best regards.

Mr. Nash,

I am so sorry about the loss of your wife. But I wanted to thank you so much for all you do. The pictures and descriptions are absolutely wonderful and such a great help.

If you have time, I do have a question about the Johnson family reunion photo clips. In the picture of Titus Winborne Johnson, would you happen to know which wife is in the picture? (Melinda Campbell or Amanda Nance?

Thank you again for your hard work and contributions to genealogy.

God Bless,
Sharon Gault Baker

Grave of Daniel Nance
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 Daniel Nance's grave in this compilation? I will cite you as the source.

Thank you.
