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).

Sure thing. I think it does say that as well.
However, there does appear to be an "h" in front on the ain't.... I attempted a rubbing, but it was too wet of a day :-)
|Tex&Texie||RE: Wellman, Billian, Herd Photos|
It's been educational for me to discuss Fort Marcy and its reburials with a friend -- to learn that the remains of the fort finally fell to treasure hunting no less.
I noticed that the name on the "Billian" marker is actually Bellaire of California so I hope this is helpful in discovering who he really was. The name on reverse of Edwards marker is Michan, although he has been listed in Santa Fe National as Mighan -- seemed like a "C" to me.
I wish more success to those of you working on restoring the lives of these fallen soldiers.
|Tim & Grace||Robert Berry in Togus National Cemetery|
I just posted the gravestone photo for Robert Berry in Togus National Cemetery. The gravestone only shows his service with the 5th Maine, but the Togus admission records has his California service in 1864.
I also just posted a gravestone photo for Corp. Thomas Bane at Togus... 3rd California Infantry.

|Bob Bartell||RE: Delia Diaz|
Thanks Steve - may I ask how you got to take the pictures? - From where you live it appears you had to travel there to get it done.

|Reba Butler||Frank Unkefer|
I am contacting you because of the great picture you added of Frank Unkefer. I am a volunteer for a Museum in Bedford, Indiana. We have over 100 letters written by Silas Henry Mathes who was with the Indiana 15th and the Signal Corps. In one of the letters he mentions a photograph he previously sent home of he and 10 other men from the Signal Corps on Lookout Mountain. He names the men and one of them is Mr. Unkefer from Ohio. From the Signal Corps records this is Frank. We don't have the picture, so I am trying to find one. I would also like permission to use this picture of Mr. Unkefer as part of the exhibit we are putting together with Henry's letters. Thanks for any help.
|Bob Bartell||RE: Delia Diaz|
She is my mother.
Here is the info:
Name at birth: Delia Luisa Gomez
Born: 6 August 1923 in San Lorenzo, Puerto Rico
First came to the states when she was 15 years old. Delia joined the Women's Army Corps during WWII. She met and married John Thomas Bartell in 1947. They were divorced in 1953. They had one child, Robert A Bartell. She raised Bob as a single mother, working as many as three jobs at a time to make ends meet. Late in life she met and married a man she truly loved, Joseph Carmen Diaz. He passed away in 1981. Delia was very close to Joe's family, considering his family hers.
She passed away in Tucson, AZ where she moved to be close to her son.
She truly enjoyed life and people and they all enjoyed her.
Steve - I hope this is not too much info.
Thanks for the information on Edwin Agard and particularly the quote.
If you'd like me to transfer his memorial to you, Id be more than happy to do that. Just let me know.

Steve, I transferred Eugene H Wood to you. I am one of about 5 volunteers that are trying to take pictures and add memorials to the Hampton National Cemetery. We are doing this by sections and hopefully will be completed by Summer. Thank you for your interest in Eugene. Rodney
