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.

RE: Almira Hedden Turner
Ted, she's listed as Elmira Turner, created 3/18/2015;
Memorial #143892929.

I added Bethel Cemetery to Find A Grave site and added Margaret Hedden, Almira Turner, the Darrows and Bunstines.

someone had added the cemetery in Wyoming Co. but it is actually Lackawanna Co.

Almira Hedden Turner
I see that you have entered Almira in Evergreen Woodlawn Cemetery Factoryville. After finding her grave and headstone, I have entered her into Bethel Cemetery, LaPlume.

RE: Heddens
If you're on, my tree is public so you would be able to view my records. I think I did a pretty good job with the Hedden family, beginning with Lewis and Margaret Tuttle Hedden, on down to the present. If your parents are George and Harriet, you are my 3rd cousin 1x removed.

I didn't know anything about them until I joined Ancestry about 4 years ago and started searching. My maternal grandmother was Florence Hedden (Franey). Her father was Charles Hedden, born in Factoryville about 1868, son of Joseph Hedden (Almira's brother) and Hattie Higgins. Margaret (Tuttle) Hedden was my 3rd great grandmother. Do you have any records for Almira's siblings Sarah, born 1862 NJ; Mary, born 1839 NJ; John born 1840 NJ?

RE: Almira Turner
Ted, Coming from Scranton, I go up 611 through Dalton and then turn left at the old Darling Meat Locker bldg. (big white electrical company in there now). This is SR 4016 LaPlume Rd. At the end of the road, turn right and travel a short distance. It's on the right side, stone wall with 2 small flags sticking out of wall. Coming through Factoryville Highland Ave. turns into Hickory Ridge, pass Lithia Valley Rd- cemetery would be on left coming from that way. Sign says Bethel Cemetery, it is in Lackawanna County. The graves are right behind the sign. There is one fallen grave which belongs to Margaret Hedden's granddaughter, Julia Belle Darrow and husband, Jerome Bunstine. My sister and our husbands went up a few wks ago to cut down the brambles and week-whacked the grasses, but it's all growing back. I spoke to a woman, Shirley, township supervisor. She told me that the cemetery is abandoned. There is $500 in the budget for grass cutting; when you find site you'll see that entire right side is so overgrown. My sister and I may go to a township meeting Thur, June 9 to talk about getting volunteers to clean it up. I'm assuming you're descended from the Almira Hedden/S.E Winfield line-daughter Christine who married Geo Myers. Have you had your DNA tested? I got my results a few weeks ago.

Would you transfer to me? He was my 4th Great-Grandfather. I am originally from Iowa and now find myself living in Tennessee. I also have Civil War Veterans in my family that I am looking for. Thank you.

RE: Elery Gray
Thanks Ted,

You look great in that uniform. Question: is there a marker for his grave? Or did you work off a list from the cemetery office?
