Bio and Links
I was born and raised in the small town of Hurley, Missouri, in north Stone County. After graduation from high school I attended Washington University in St Louis and the University of Missouri Medical School. I became a family doctor and geriatrician. I spent my professional life in academic medicine, serving as chairman of departments of Family Medicine in two medical schools. I have been retired now since 2007. My wife is a nurse practitioner specializing in palliative care. We have four sons and two grandsons. I have had a life long interest in genealogy and have pursued this interest passionately for the past 10-12 years, accumulating much interesting information on all branches of my family (and my wife's also). I have published one book and five articles. I am happy to share information or to help anyone that I can.

RE: Nathan Lee Memorial
I documented the cemetery, in other words I spent many days walking and taking pictures of each stone and loading it to Find A Grave.

RE: Pvt William Blackburn's Grave
I put up the letter the lawyer sent for his fathers claims for money owed to his son. It says he was wounded June 26, 1862 and died from his wounds July 2, 1862. The pay master also stated that he was wounded June 26 and died July 2, 1862. More than likely he was sent to a hospital in Richmond or home where he died. His records are not complete. If you like you can copy the letter I have up on his memorial. If you like I can E Mail you the pay master's letter to. You are right about the dates of the other battles. But that date he was wounded puts him at Mechanicsville, Va.. I got the information from the book 1400 Days The Civil Day by Day by Chris Bishop, Ian Drury and Tony Gibbons and other books.

Thank you Jim. It's the same guy. Last name spelled Blackburne or Blackburn. His military records have it Blackburne. My list has him without the E. Any Information you have about him I would like to have. Thank You very much.

RE: Rosalia Cemetery
By the way, in the USGS dataset the Rosalia Cemetery is listed both in Spokane and Whitman counties, so it must straddle the border. http://tinyurl.com/l4zxas3

RE: Rosalia Cemetery
Using my USGS search app, I found a "Rosalia Cemetery" in the USGS dataset. Here's the link: http://ezgeo.net/searchGNIS?gnis_id=1510483 . I don't think it's in the Find A Grave data. You can do more searching at http://ezgeo.net/shasta .

RE: Rosalia Cemetery
The only cemetery that I'm familiar with there is the IOOF cemetery. http://tinyurl.com/mdmpmko . There don't seem to be any Springers in it, though it's very possible that the record has simply not been entered into Find A Grave. There's also a "Riggs Cemetery" according to Find A Grave, but likewise no Springers. http://tinyurl.com/lft2eap . Ditto for the Holy "Rosary Cemetery" http://tinyurl.com/ka37xvd . Someone would have to go to these cemeteries and look for the marker for you. I'm not sure if you're allowed to enter photo requests here without being certain of the cemetery, but maybe.
