In Find A Grave, only one grave is shown. Do you have any other information on the Barlow Cemetery, Bedford County, Virginia, USA or suggestions for me to look on computer?

RE: Montgomery Cemetery in Pullaski Co. Va.
The Montgomery Family Cemetery is mistakenly listed as the Highland Emmanuel Cemetery on Find A Grave. The Montgomery family, to my knowledge did not attend the old Highland Methodist Church (sold and renamed in the 1990's to the Emmanuel Church and now a residence) The Montgomery family owns a lot of property in the area of Highland Road, and started a cemetery next to the old Highland Methodist Church off of Highland Road.

James Albert 'Jimmy' Brown
Is this the SSgt. James A. Brown, ser. no. 6994332, Bronze Star recipient, who served in the 455th AAA Bn., Patton's Third Army in Europe??? He lived at 2606 Bowman St. NW, Roanoke, VA. in his later days, I believe. I am the historian of the unit and am trying to determine if this is our 'lost' member.

Thank you for entering her information onto this site. Would you happen to know if the list of all interred at this cemetery is current?

The reason I ask is I was told that her parents, Mae & Lillard Lester, and at least one of her brothers, Quinten, is buried there also. They don't seem to come up in my search.

Thanks once again for Jean's information and any help you can give me with the rest of our family.

John Ginn # 32269170
Is this the John H Ginn who served as a Private in Company D "Danielsville Guard" 16th Regiment Georgia Volunteer Infantry? Company D was organized at Danilesvile GA and I noticed this John Ginn's mother died in GA.

If you are kin to him, and were aware that he served, then you are probably aware of the history of this Regiment. If not, feel free to contact me for a full account of their engagements. It seems this Regiment was involved in most every major battle of the Eastern theater (and some of the west) usually in the worst possible places.

If this John Ginn is the same as John H Ginn, he enlisted Aug 5 1861 at Danielsville Madison County GA by Capt Montgomery for the "war." He was hospitalized in Richmond for Rheumatism in 1862. He was wounded near Fredericksburg Dec 11-13, 1862 and he was killed at the Battle of the Wilderness May 6 1864.

Appears on a list of casualties, in McLaws Division, in the battles before Fredericksburg Va Dec 11-13, 1862
List dated near Fredericksburg, Va Dec 18, 1862
J. H. Ginn
Co D 16th Regt Ga
Remarks wounded slightly

Appears on Company Muster Roll for May & June 1864 dated Dec 15 1864
J. H. Ginn
Pvt Co D 16 Regt Georgia Infantry
Remarks: Killed at Wilderness Va in line of duty 6 May 1864.

Name Appears on a Register of Claims of Deceased Officers and Soldiers from Georgia which were filed for settlement....
John H Ginn
Co D 16 Regt Ga
By whom presented: Celia Ginn, wife
When filed Aug 23 1864
Where died May 1864

PLease let me know one way or another. I am compiling a virtual cemetery of the entire 16th Regiment and so far have located and linked over 640 of its members. Also feel free to contact me if you'd like more information.
