|Bio and Links|
I am a retired Huntsville Alabama Police Officer. I have been a student of local history for many years. My main interests lie in Alabama Civil War Units. One of the saddest things about the Civil War was that so many young men left home and were never heard from again. Their families never knew how or where they died or where they were buried. Thanks to the work of many Findagrave contributors, I have reunited many of these brave men,if only in a virtual cemetery. These cemeteries are a constant work in progress and a tedious undertaking. If you have a relative that has not yet been included, please let me know and it would be my honor to add them. I welcome any and all info on any of my memorials and am always happy to transfer your kin folk. If you visit the memorial of any of these brave men, please honor them in any way you see fit. Whether or not you believe their cause was just, does not matter. What matters is that men from both sides fought and died protecting the only way of life they had ever known. "Alas! In how many Southern homes aching hearts waited through weary months for news of loved ones that never came until the suspense was replaced by the real certainty that the absent one had helped to swell the unknown dead of the Wheatfield, the Peach Orchard, or the Devil's Den of a Northern land."--J. Howard Wert. Sometimes I come home from work with a sore back or tired feet or maybe even a headache. Then I think of a 18 year old boy lying wounded in a dark field. He's hundreds of miles from home. He's thirsty,hungry and cold. He's crying for his Mama. Or I think of Robert and Sarah Milling, of Dallas County, who lost their five sons to the Confederate cause in the 20th Alabama Infantry. Suddenly, I don't feel so bad afterall.|

Thank you for adding my gggrandfather W.P. Bevil. I have searched for over twenty years for a burial site and have had no luck. I wsh I could give you one to add to your memorial. What you are doing is wonderful and so helpful to people who may not have the time or means to research. Thank you again.

Here is another of the Hinkle brothers, John W. who is buried in Rushing, AR in the Rushing cemetery his Find A Grave Memorial# 13681291 e will provide you with info and photos. I have a photo of him as an old man I can provide you as well.
Hello, Mr. Hutch! I happened upon your Member Page today, and I must tell you that I am most impressed with ALL your work in photographing & transcribing all this info! I don't get out nearly as much as I would like as my dear friend works full-time.
Thanks to my family history work and Findagrave, I have found three of my 2nd GGF's & some 3rd GGF's who have Civil War Military Markers! My, but finding each of those literally made my day.
The saddest thing is that two of these 2nd GGF's are buried within 120 miles of my home, & I had no idea they Served (much less that they had Military Markers!). As far as I know, their stories are virtually lost, & all we have is the paperwork we can locate.
I've been a History buff with emphasis on the Civil War for about 20 years now with many trips to Gettysburg and the many Battlefields/Cemeteries both above & below the Mason-Dixon Line. My, what HISTORY!
Wishing you a most Warm and Wonderful Holiday Season (and a safe one!). Kindest regards, Southernatheart P.S.: May I kindly add you to my Friends List?

Hi Hutch, I'm still staying quite busy with the photos and memorials in the Confederate section here. I just sent you an edit for this gentleman and you were right in his year of death was 1862. Sorry about that...my big, fat cold fingers got me again :)
Hope Santa is good to you...so long as you were a good boy this year :)

Thank you Hutch and same back at you sir. I've spent the past couple months trying to get better photos of the soldiers graves in the Confederate section of Old City. I had three specifically from Alabama that I was going to try and take care of today as the weather here is wonderful, but forgot the wreaths were laid out there yesterday. Might still try. Thinking I need to start a book of some type for the soldiers. Sad to see so many errors in the marking on the stones. Hard enough for family to find the men as it is.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you,
