My Virtual Cemeteries.
As the Graves Registration Officer for Cochise County, Arizona, for the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War (SUVCW), I research Union veterans of Cochise County. This takes me all over the United States. What I find that is not already posted I share with Find-A-Grave. Union virtual cemeteries include:
- Members of Tombstone's Burnside Post, G.A.R.
- Members of Bisbee's Kehoe/Stebbins Post, G.A.R.
- Officers who served at Fort Mason, Arizona Territory, during the Civil War
- Veterans of the Native California Cavalry (a Spanish language Civil War regiment)
- California Volunteers during the Civil War
"Siemsen Kin" Virtual Cemetery.
Deceased members of the Siemsen-Neuhoefel-Lemburg clans that originated in Dithmarschen, Schleswig-Holstein, Germany. To recall Dithmarschen's years as an independent republic (1227-1559) the Dithmarschers used to inscribe 'Ditmarsia Libera Fuit' (Latin: 'Dithmarschen was free') on buildings, boundary markers, pottery, and grave stones. I have included it at the bottom of memorials for those who were born in Dithmarschen. (http://www.answers.com/topic/dithmarschen)
Casillas-Lugo Virtual Cemetery.
"Hey, what about my family?" OK, dear, here they are! Many of them were early Hispanic pioneers of (Alta) California and Arizona (pre-1848).

|Janet||RE: Robert Swan|
Should you care to see them: Upon digging through floppy discs of all things, I found the individual stones for Robert and Sallie Swan. These were placed at the foot of the graves, in addition to the large marker with both names. Glad I still had them.

Thanks for your suggestion. I always try to make the name match the marker, so I settled on moving the "de" so it would not infer with a search.

Thanks for the great bio, Steve. Your "work" is excellent. How do you decide who to research other than Union soldiers?

He is buried in Cienegitas, where the grave marker that appears on this memorial
is also located. Move him there and I will delete my duplicate.
