Hi, I'm a retired police officer for the City of North Charleston in South Carolina. I retired in April 2005 with 33 years in law enforcememt. I also served 4 years in the USAF from 1967-1971. I have a beautiful wife, Roxanne, a beautiful daughter, Stephanie, who served 8 years in the United States Air Force and is now in the USAF Reserves. I have a beautiful grandaughter, born December 1, 2006, and her name is Raena Makenzie and she is the apple of my eye. I love to read and study history of the war for southern independence and World War II.|
Find A Grave is one of my favorite sites, it is very interesting and full of unlimited history. If you have some free time please stop by my mom and dads site and I would like to thank everyone for all of the beautiful flowers and messages left for them, it really means alot to us.

Hi, I saw your posting for William, honoring him as a "True Southern Hero" and "A Confederate Soldier who Bravely and Proudly Fought for Southern Independence".....but I was just curious, as I'am researching this Family Tree, did you know that His Father, James Anderson Talbert was a Big Slave Owner?, so William grew up among enslaved people......It makes you wonder, what it was that he thought he was proudly fighting for.....just a thought. Cheers.

Thank you for your help and work at Find A Grave.
Thank you for taking the time to leave such kind words for my great great grandfather, a Confederate veteran. It was refreshing to see someone appreciate his sacrifice!

Thank you for your kind message on Stephen Pinkney Dancer's memorial page. (He was one of my great-great grandfathers.) He was at the Battle of First Manassas, the Battle of Seven Pines and then wounded at the Battle of Gaines Farm, losing mobility in his left arm. He thankfully made his way back West, returning to Mississippi and then on toTexas, spending the next 50 or so years living with a rifle bullet in his shoulder. And thank you for your service!

Thank you for leaving a memorial to my GG Grandfather. Did you know, his first and only battle was at Lookout Mountain where he fired off 11 shots before he was captured by Federals. He spent the rest of the war at a POW camp at Rock Island, IL. He stated that food was short and occasionally they would get a piece of mule meat that they made soup from. After the end of the War For Southern Independence he was released and walked back or caught a few wagon rides to MS, where he was from. He later became a circuit riding Methodist minister in AL. and MS. he had been assigned to the 19th or 27th Mississippi Inf. (I think) as part of Col. Walthal's Brigade, Army of TN.
Now, if I just find one of those supposedly "despicable" Confederate flags to place on his Find A Grave page as part of my memorial to him, as he obviously did serve as a Confederate soldier, though my ancestors did not own slaves nor fight for slavery. Obviously Find A Grave does not provide any such flag images.
