Bio and Links
Bio Photo I began doing family genealogy over 30 years ago.After I retired from the military, I became very interested in the Civil War. I had visited many civil war cemeteries, and the many unknown soldiers buried in them. Every soldier who died in war for his country should be known and honored. And the families of the soldier should be able to know where he is buried, this has been my goal to provide that information to those who are searching for a soldier.

I spend a great deal of my time traveling to battlefields and cemeteries, and researching information on a soldier or person. If at anytime I can be of help or if you need more information please contact me. Or if you have more information on a soldier. If a correction needs to be made "PLEASE" contact me. Don't write an other "BIO" in the Flowers and Notes section of the Memorial. Leave a message or email me anytime.

I will tranfer memorials if it is a request made by a relative of a soldier. If you are not related please do not ask. If you have information in regards to a soldiers memorial I will be more then happy to add it.

"The Bivouac of The Dead"

The muffled drums sad roll's all beat
the soldier's last tatoo,
No more on life's parade shall meet
The brave and fallen few.

The neighing troop, the flashing blade,
The bugles stirring blast,
The charge,the dreadful cannonade,
The din and shout are past.

Rest on embalmed and sainted dead,
Dear as the blood ye gave,
No impious footstep here shall thread.
The herbage of your grave,

On fame's enternal camping ground,
Their silent tents are spread,
And glory guards with solemn round,
The bivouac of the dead.

No vision of the morrow's strife
The warrior's dream alarms,
No braying horn nor screaming fife
At dawn shall call to arms,

No rumor of the foe's advance
Now sweeps upon the wind,
No troubled thought at midnight haunts
Of love ones left behind,

Your own proud land's heroic soil
must be your fitter grave;
She claims from war his richest spoil,
The ashes of the brave.

-Theodore O'Hara-

Note: In making correction to memorials, I will make corrections, Birth dates, Death dates, Marriage dates add a spouse or children, if they have memorials, I will not add long Bio's, I just don't have the time. If you have a Bio I will be more then happy to transfer a memorial to you to add a bio, when finished just transfer it back. I spent a great deal of time traveling to battlefields and cemeteries which takes up a lot of my time, I would be greatful for any help you can give me in regards to memorials.

Darrell Landrum
Pvt John M Teague
Seems to be a discrepancy in when this gentleman was wounded and buried. Possibly 1861 when he was wounded?

Pvt Silas E Arrington
Hi Ted, I can't find anything which shows Pvt Arrington is buried in the Confederate section of Old City. Could he possibly be one of the many soldiers who's body was shipped home for the family to bury?

RE: Augustus Colvin

Please delete from Augustus Colvin's bio the phrase stating that his "Last name may also be "Colvine." That's not even possible. His surname never was Colvine. In all of his Civil War records and censuses, his surname never was written or even erroneously indexed that way.

The only reference to the name Colvine in Pennsylvania records was for a Charles Colvine who emigrated from Great Britain, landing in Philly, in 1827. And that wasn't a spelling error, he apparently changed his name. died or returned to the UK before 1830.

Thank You

Just wanted to say thanks for all of the memorials you've created for soldiers over the years. I can't tell you how many times I've come across your memorials while researching my great-grandfather's regiment, and just wanted you to know how much your hard work is appreciated. Happy Thanksgiving!

Thank you
Thanks so much for the work you have done on soldiers. I was researching Francis Marion Lee who died in Murfreesboro during the Civil War and was so happy to find him on Find a Grave. We are doing a local project on Civil War soldiers from our county and I appreciate your work. Thanks for the time, effort and resources you have put into this project of yours.

Lawrence Kearns
Hi, Ted,

Just wanted to let you know that I found Lawrence Kearns' grave and visited last September. He was indeed in the parish cemetery at St. Mary's in Dunmore, in a place so obvious, we missed it.

So grateful for all of the help and encouragement. Recently found my gggrandmother on my grandfather's side. She died a few days after giving birth to him and her family took possession of her remains and buried her far from her family in Archbald.

Thanks again!

RE: Garrett Taylor
That would be fine. I know it gave me a since of honor when I stood there in front of his stone in Corinth. Thank you
