|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. There are two that I hope I never add another name to. 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 16 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, Hutch! I will be honored to maintain his memorial!
I will add to it, now. Please let me know if I can ever repay the kindness!
Thank You for your efforts in connecting all these families. What are we if we don't have family and a history to go with it?
I can tell you: we'd be nothing special.
I'll be happy to help YOU in any way that I can. You've done fantastic work, and a lot of it, here. Please let me know if I can return the favor in any way!

Thank you for all the hard work you've done and information you've provided on Find-A-Grave! It's amazing!
I was so pleased to find this great-great uncle of mine. Ossian Tigner Brown was my great-great grandfather's brother. My great-great grandfather was Emory Seals Brown. Their parents were Dr. Charles Anderson Brown and Miss Mary Mulkey (Brown).
Would you entertain the idea of transferring his memorial to me? If you'd rather not, I'll be happy to provide information for you to add to the memorial.
Ossian Tigner (known as O.T.) Brown became a Lawyer in San Marcos, Hays County, Texas. He married and had four girls (that I've found, so far). His and Elizabeth Belvin Brown's family home, located at 716 Belvin Street, (the street having been named after Elizabeth's father) can be seen, online, if you'd like to look, at:
as it was and may still be a Texas Historical Site in San Marcos. This is one of the better pictures I've seen of their house. It was lovely.
Please let me know your thoughts. I would love for you to see the memorial after everything I have compiled is added!
Thank you so MUCH for the photographs of his gravestone. I was very proud to see it!
Please let me know your thoughts....and, THANK YOU, AGAIN! :)
