As a lifetime history buff, and having lived near some old cemeteries, it is only "natural" that the two are now combined.
I've catalogued all the Confederate fallen in the Spotsylvania Confederate Cemetery in Spotsylvania Courthouse, Va. I will soon publish a roster/book with these findings and short bios/service records of these men. A copy will be presented to the Spotsylvania Courthouse Museum.
Also, I'm in the process of doing the same for the Confederate fallen and veterans in the Fredericksburg Confederate and City cemeteries.
As Historian of the above cemeteries, please feel free to inquire of any Confederate burials.
Also, I give tours of each.
The Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania County Battlefields National Park Service refers Confederate burial inquiries to me.

Pvt John Frederick Mayer (21137555)

The picture you refer to was not intended to be another photo of J F Mayer, but was intended as a general view of the Stinton Family plot (D-201) where he is buried.

If you still want it removed, let me know.

RE: Pvt David Hamrick edits
If this is the person I believe it is, he is my son's grandfather. He married Nancy L. Powell. Sarah was his mother and Archibald Hamrick was his father. Archibald's father was also a David Hamrick (1781-1869) and the two are often in the same household with Archibald and Sarah so it causes some confusion as to whose child/spouse belongs to whom. David J. (Jones?) Hamrick (the son) enlisted in NC into the 12th and was almost immediately killed at the Battle of the Wilderness. His daughter was Susannah Jane Hamrick who married Benjamin Parker. Her son, Ace Burton Parker married Rilda Davis who had a daughter named Doshie Mae who married Leroy James Shedd, Sr. One of their daughters, Rida Louise Shedd, married David Michael Morgan. Their son, David Roy Morgan, is my son's father. Much of this information was found in family bibles, old letters, etc. I can't cite sources for all of it as I am still working my way back through much of it and have hit a road block after finding the information on David Hamrick's enlistment and death.

Any help figuring out this line would be appreciated. After Archibald's father (David), I believe there's a Samuel Hamrick, but I have yet to confirm that and have found no record of a marriage or where he came from.

RE: Pvt Thomas D Barber Pt II
All the records (marriage and census) I have of his father are for Thomas Barber. No middle name. Not even an initial. But, for this guy, the 1850 and 1860 Federal Census each list him as Thomas D. Barber. A "Barber Genealogy," written by a brother of my maternal grandfather, Bruce Owens, in 1927, lists him as "[Barber] Thomas Davis," and adds that he was "(killed Spottsylvania Courthouse.)"

Hi Dan,
I have the U.S. Census records for 1850 & 1860 showing the parents and names of their children and living in Jasper Co., MS . I also have military papers for the sons, (when Samuel died his father claimed his effects).

RE: Philip Robb pic
I was only given access for a very brief period of time so I quickly took as many pictures as I could. Sorry I could not get them all in better detail. I can tell you the top of his marker is a simple cross over the base. This format was repeated for a large majority of the graves in this cemetery.

RE: Bennett, Stewart marker pics
Happy to help--I saw that Charles H. Stewart shares a monument with his parents, Chas. G. and Elza S. Stewart, and I sent you a link request. Perhaps admin can transfer the parents to your care.

I would have to re-research how I determined he was buried at Fredericksburg, VA Confederate Cemetery. At the time I created his memorial, I was fairly certain he could be buried there.
