George M. Mankin #2987318
Thank you Janet for accepting the care of this memorial from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. George is my wife's 1st cousin 4X removed. Although the stone states his last name is "Mankins" it is not, it is Mankin. Would you be so kind to transfer his memorial into my care? I have extensive information concerning him, his life and family that I would like to add to this memorial. My Find A Grave member # is:47197607

RE: Find A Grave Memorial# 3951415
The one he is currently linked to is an newer duplicate. As I understand it, Find-a-Grave uses the first/older memorial. Please compare the "created" dates. Hope this helps.

Re: Edwin Eleazer Huntington, Memorial# 3951415

Thanks for your note. Since February 2014, there have been two memorials in North Windham Cemetery for Edwin's father, Eleazer Huntington (1766 - 1830), but prior to that, only the one I manage and created in 2011. This happens when an earlier memorial is created with burial location "unknown" and no cemetery initially indicated OR is placed in the wrong cemetery then moved to the correct one later after the duplicate. The person with the older Eleazer Huntington memorial didn't contact me - and just made a black/white version of the color photo on mine and placed on his older memorial of 2008 - thus he was aware of the conflict from the get-go. He refused to delete his. As I think the so-called "merged" memorials by F-A-G are less than satisfactory, I'm willing to delete the one I created for my 4th gr-grandfather ONLY after all links and information on mine are incorporated into or recreated (flowers) onto his. So I suggest you go ahead and link. I'll myself upload today the color photos to his. I can't tell if he is a "batch uploader" of merely names, then places them in correct cemeteries later - or whether this was an honest mistake. From the volunteer photos taken, guessing he lives in Virginia - but there are some photos from Windham Co. - but again, not for this. he may/may not be related and I always bias family in these situations, regardless of F-A-G suggested guidelines. Put the memorial in the hands of those who care most and will best maintain it long term.

Again, only after all information on mine is on his, will I delete mine. Thanks for asking.

this northern soldier is buried at chatanooga. the us govt placed the wrong name on the stone. the dead vet is Thomas routt from Covington ky. I have emailed va to see about replacing the poor guys stone. he died in thehospital there after getting sick. his brother Jefferson routt was in the same division and he was captured at chicamauga and died at Richmond va prison the next year. I have both of their pension requests from their mother and have verified all. thanks for your work, it makes things easier for an old guy like me. dale ashcraft

Thanks for John Lowmiller
Hi is my 3x great grandfather and was married to Delia "Matilda" Ann Steffy. He is not the John Lowmiller you found in Ohio married to Catherine. That John went on to live a long life. Our John has been very elusive so you finally gave me a birth and death date as well as where he is buried! Thanks, Shawn Barnhart-Shuman

RE: 134th NY Rocky Face Ridge Dead
If memory serves me correctly, after the battle the 134th participated in, the armies slowly disengaged themselves from each other over several days. I suppose it is possible the 134th was unable to recover their dead because the confederate forces above them abandoned their positions as, or immediately after, the 134th moved south.

RE: 134th NY Rocky Face Ridge Dead
Hi Janet, Another researcher told me that all three of the mortally wounded members of the 134th were taken to Big Shanty. Something like 80+/- were buried there, most not identified when disinterred. I saw a person-by-person list of the Big Shanty graves, the majority were not identified. It was my understanding that they were re-buried at the Marietta National Cemetery. When I lived near the state capital of NY I used to go to the state museum archives and read letters and diaries. Found nothing referencing burial locations, except one guy who died in Virginia and was "buried near a big Oak Tree". Thanks for all of the information. Paul

Jackson Woods
Janet, thank you so much for posting the picture of the stone for Jackson Woods in Macon, GA. Could you tell me exactly where it is located? Is it in the Oglethorpe Cemetery in Macon, GA or in Andersonville,GA? Thank you so much.

134th NY Rocky Face Ridge Dead
Hello Janet,

My name is Paul Turner, I had an ancestor, James Guffin, KIA Kennesaw Mountain, who served in the 134th NY. I've created a virtual Cemetery for it, 365 names and counting.

I saw your notation that you were unable to find the burial location of any of the 134th's Rocky Face Ridge dead.

I was wondering if you ever were able to determine where the Rocky Face Ridge dead, those who were originally buried at the battlefield, regardless of unit, were ulitmately buried?

Thanks for all of the work you have done.

Paul Turner
