Calvin Rush Civil War
Calvin was a prisoner at Andersonville Prison in GA during the war. Over 14,000 men died there of abuse, starvation, and disease. Its a miracle my GGG survived. Thank you for your acknowledgment that he served in the Ohio 75th OVI.

None to be Forgotten
Hi Tom - deleted those two dups you sent. Just to let you know, I check any records I use against what's already in Find A Grave to AVOID dups but a few years back, not all the memorials would appear when I pulled up the cemetery lists on Find A Grave and so some DID get duplicated. Also a lot of memorials are created using "different" names than the name on the official records so they don't necessarily appear as a duplicate to me. I'm currently entering the entire state of Iowa and it's a real problem down there!Just let me know when you find one and I'm happy to take care of it! - Cindy (None to be Forgotten)

(FYI - I used to live in Winona and then Rollingstone. Am now in St. Charles. I even wrote a book about Winona County Cemeteries!)

Charles Newhouse Headstone
Tom, Thank you so much for finding and photographing the headstone of Charles Newhouse, my great-uncle, and his wife in the Mazeppa Cemetery. I once tried to find the burial site, but was unsuccessful. So, I really appreciate your efforts on my behalf. Again, thank you. Linda Newhouse Oliver
