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. It 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.
The Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania County Battlefields National Park Service refers Confederate burial inquiries to me.

Hi there, I recently purchased the book: "Red Clay to Richmond" and found this info on page 399.

|Ernest "Dusty" Kobs||RE: Jason Ridgell|
Howdy Sir, The info I have on Jason Ridgell is that his mother was Sarah Godwin and father Joel. I do know that his father died in Dale County, Alabama abt 1858 so it makes sense that Jason would be there in 1860. Keep me posted on your progress!Dusty firstname.lastname@example.org
|Andrea Hooe Raum||RE: Hooe clan|
Hello! My father's family are Hooe's, descended from the Virginia Hooes. After joining Ancestry and seeing numerous trees with erroneous information recorded, I waded in to try and create a comprehensive tree with documentation. Find-a-Grave has been a remarkable resource in this endeavor.
|Denise Roffe||RE: Mary Patterson|
Thank you! Would love to investigate in Fredericksburg. If I ever make it up that way, I'll let you know! Always nice to meet another Findagraver. :)
|Suzannah McCuen||RE: John Pilkinton|
I'm afraid I'll be unable to "bury" him at Spotsylvania or Chancellorsville and that he, like many others, will be left as "unknown site of burial". So I just posted his memorial in that void. At least that way he is remembered and some information on him shared although place of his burial (if he was buried) is unknown. Thanks for the work you do. I understand that you want to keep the record accurate - I try to do the same for the state hospital cemeteries I research. Thanks for letting me know what information you have.
|Barbara Law||RE: Henry Wiggins|
When I put that up over a year ago, he did not come up as having a page in the cemetery. I checked before I put it up. Don't know why that happened.
He is my husbands Great Great Grandfather.
Could you please transfer your page over to me?
I would greatly appreciate it.
My number is: 47906626.

Not since November 2012.
|Donna McPherson||Montgomery & Maury|
The Montgomery and the Matthew Fountaine Maury are my family. So thanks for the info.
|Jim Longest||RE: George Trice|
The applications are coming on line on both Ancestry.com and FamilySearch.org. I first found one for my Great grandfather, William Jackson Harper (Co I, 26 Va Infantry) about a week ago and have since found several others.
