"A people that takes no pride in the noble achievements of remote ancestors will never achieve anything worthy to be remembered with pride by remote descendents." – Macauley.|
I'm a Homesite Acreage REALTOR in Montgomery County, Texas...working on my Family History when I can...joined F-A-G not long ago and have already had alot of success, I think this is great and would like to applaud all involved!
I am also a Member of the Class of 1979 at St. Frederick CHS (Go WARRIOR'S!) in Monroe, La., and have begun a new project...gathering F-A-G info for all our deceased ALUMNI....and would like to THANK all my fellow WARRIORS for any assistance!!
NO WARRIOR LEFT BEHIND!
...and now I've been vol-recruited by the 75th Ohio Inf (yep, YANKS!), to help get all members of the original CW Regiment located &/or memorialized! This was the unit in which a GGGrand-Uncle, Capt. Thomas J. Wheeler (#22988649) served with until his death in 1863...he died of multiple GSWs inflicted on the first day of the Battle of Gettysburg!
NO WARRIOR LEFT BEHIND!
On 1/19/2011 my father, CMDR Thomas J. Powers passed away suddenly....upon hearing the news I immediately sat and began his Memorial (Find A Grave Memorial# 64427239) which I posted to F/B as I was unable to speak of it on the phone. He was very proud of the work I had been doing on Ancestry & F-A-G, both for the Family...and for the "forgotten" CW Vets! He had just visited "Chancellorsville" the day before his death and purchased 2 books for me there, one was "The Last Days of Thomas J. 'Stonewall' Jackson"! RIP Dad.
NO WARRIOR LEFT BEHIND!

SUMMER 2011...Frank & Jesse James CAPTURED!
In my TREE!!! My Dad died suddenly in Jan, leaving a lot of unanswered ???s on his maternal side as his mother had died just after his birth, and her mother died when she was only 4, and her mother, when she was 22....3 generations all died young in Ark, away from the Old Kentucky Home!!? Then a 2nd cousin of Dads found me thru F-A-G, who provided a lot of new info that sent me up several of his "lost" maternal lines and resulted in several surprises such as his GGG-Gpa was GEN Jesse Cole Lindsay (KY Militia)! I was excited with this till I discovered his sister was the Grandmother of FRANK & JESSE JAMES....making me their 2nd (4x's) Cousin!!! Then also there was my GGG-Uncle, COL John Anthony Lindsay (CSA-Ark), #75652636, who served GEN Sterling Price in the 1864 MO Campaign as his Guide!!! I finally found those REBELS in the woodpile I've been in search of all my life...in SPADES!!! Iiiiiiieeeee!!!
My Dad never knew any of this....DA*N!
Last words of a mortally wounded 20yr old Confederate Officer: "No, I am done for. You can do me no good. Save yourselves and tell Pa good-bye and I died right. I did my duty. I died at my post." ~RIP Sir

Hi: I was looking for photo requests in Centre Co, PA, and saw yours for John Patton. Is he the Revolutionary war patriot buried in the Old Pine Mills Cemetery? Here is the link: http://findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=patton&GSfn=john&GSbyrel=all&GSdyrel=all&GSst=40&GScntry=4&GSob=n&GRid=51003786&df=all&. Also the cemetery has a marker with his name on it. Happy Hunting!

His mother: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=17895119
I am also related to the Powers buried in Wauconda.
By any chance would you happen to have a copy of a book which included Co. B 96th IL Infantry?
That's not the entire name but I forget now what else was included in the name.
It's out of print. I contacted the publisher who gave me his information. I sent a letter years ago but it was never answered.
I think the author's name was Paul Evans.
|priscilla ross-fox||Emerson Powers|
Your place of burial is correct. I don't know of a cemetery at Elgin State and the headstone issued for him states Bluff City Cemetery.
I had a date of birth but can't find it now. Will give you his parents numbers ASAP.

Chronicling America has the Red Cloud Chief in its digital collection http://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/ If you're looking for people before 1922, you can search there for obits or news articles.

I am trying to find out if this is the same James William Wheeler in my family genealogy. But mine was born 1836 in Pa. To Wilhelm Van Lude Wheeler. He served in the 55 th Va. Infantry I think. But he was married to Virginia Lewis in 1882. But died in 1916. Trying to find out accurate info.
|Susan LH||George Carlise|
I tried to email you this information but it came back undeliverable.
You requested a photo of his stone. He was buried at the old city cemetery in Lancaster Ohio. He happened to have married a relative of my sister-in-law. Here is some information on him:
He was married twice. Second wife was Mary Guseman. Married June 21, 1833. They had 3 children: Mary Jane born Jan 1834 - she died September 24, 1902. Anna Maria - born March 18, 1843 - she died May 3, 1855. Ellen M. born October 1847 - died February 13, 1850.
Mary Guseman - Born January 17, 1808 Martinsburg, VA Died - January 27, 1886 Lancaster Ohio.
Now, the information on the cemetery. In 1907 the cemetery was "moved", however, it really wasn't. If the family came and claimed the people, they probably got moved. There is no proof that he got moved. Sorry. Also, this area where the cemetery was, is now a park with a cemetery. Yes, the city does know some people are still buried there
