Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello, my name is Karl Stelly. I'm 61 years old, and I'm originally from Lafayette, Louisiana. I've lived in Baytown, Texas, Tulare, California, Great Falls, Montana, Killeen, Texas, Manassas, Virginia, and Louisville, Kentucky. I moved to Gettysburg with my wife about 10 years ago. I enjoy roaming the battlefield and photography, and studying the history of Gettysburg and the Civil War. I have quite a few photographs of Gettysburg and other Civil War battlefields and other historic sites posted on Google Earth. I use the name "Seven Stars" on Panoramio and Google Earth. If you see photos there by "Seven Stars," that's me!

Feel free to use any of the headstone or grave photographs I have taken for your genealogy work, projects, etc. There is no need to ask permission first. I have no problem with people using my photos on other websites. Just give me credit for taking the photos, is all I ask.

**** NEW !!!! ****

I have recently created Virtual Cemeteries for each individual State Plot in the Gettysburg National Cemetery. This enables people to have very handy listings of all the known burials within each State Plot at Gettysburg. I have also included a Virtual Cemetery for the United States Regulars buried in the National Cemetery (at least all the KNOWN ones). Enjoy!

Karl,

Thank you so much for all the hard work you've done there in Gettysburg! I was last in the area in 2007 and have a cousin that lives on a beautiful farm close by. I'm hoping to make another trip out that way this coming Spring/Summer. It would be nice to meet you!

I'm wondering if you would consider transferring the above named individual's memorial to my care? His memorial # is: 47503871.

Lanny's father is my 2nd cousin who I am in regular contact with. He is retired Army, living in Alabama now and was serving in Germany at the time of his son's death. Should this be possible my contributor # is: 47064561

Thank you for your time and consideration.

All the best to you and yours!

RE: CPL Joseph Batallie
Karl, I have been overwhelmed with helping other reseachers, please forgive me for not responding right away. My family married into the Bataille family years ago. I could never locate Joseph, but had the rest of his siblings. Every once in a while
I check to see if I can find what I missed over the years. I lucked out by finding your memorial, which you did a fantastic writeup detailing all about his
life
Your time & effort was very much appreciated.
Many thanks again, I apologize for taking so long
to formally thank you.

Thank you so much for updating Joseph's Memorial.His sister,Mary is a big part of my own family. I was so excited when I found Mary's brother, Joseph
However it was so sad to read how he died.
Why does the stone read Battle?

Sam Grossa- memorial photo
Dear Mr. Stelly,
I copied a photo, accredited to you at the West Virginia, National Cemetery near Pruntytown , West Virginia, to my grandson's, great grandfather's Find A Grave, memorial #154284929. The photo shows the area where Mr Grossa and his wife are buried. I gave you credit in the remarks section, but it doesn't show on the memorial page. I hope this is ok with you, if not would you please post this photo to Mr. Grossa's memorial page. Thank you so much for the beautiful photos you have taken at this cemetery.

Bill
