*Honorary member Rev. Beverly Tucker Lacy Camp 2141 Virginia Sons of Confederate Veterans (S.C.V.)*

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.

Depending on relationships and individual personalities, sometimes it is the surviving wife who writes the obit, omitting information that would be meaningful to others. (Am sure you know that.) Happy to transfer management to you.

RE: Janzegers marker pics
Not sure why the request but it has been completed. I must not have understood your first request.

Sorry

What exactly does this mean? Several times I get an email request from someone that asks a question about a grave I have posted and I am unable to answer the question because of "no reply".

RE: G. Amans headstone
We were so glad to see your name for the confederate grave photo!
We have missed your findagrave requests this summer. We worry that the stones are wearing and will become illegible. We would love to help take many more of the cemetery photos.
Take care,
Photos 4 You.

RE: Capt Thomas W Wilson
BigFrench, will research if I find anything will certainly be in touch. What I know he was the son of Thomas Wilson and Rebecca Williams, my GGGG Grandparents.

Thanks for all your work and dedication to "The Cause".

Capt Thomas W Wilson

Hello BigFrench, love the name. I am inquiring about Capt Thomas W Wilson killed in action in the Battle of Spotsylvania Court House, Va. I am related to him, can you give any more information about him. Actually on Find a Grave does have a lot of his history.

Thank you

Ann Wilson Fisher
