|Bio and Links|
Hello. Wendy and I live in the Memphis area. |
My career in the Marine Corps landed us here. After retiring from the Corps, we settled and are building the next chapter of our lives. Our children and grandchildren remain our first love, but we do have a passion for genealogy and history.
I am an avid military researcher and collector, and Wendy is a member of the Mayflower Society, the Daughters of the American Revolution, and the Daughters of Union Veterans.
In between our full time jobs, we enjoy researching and sharing our discoveries. We have enjoyed the richness and bounty our country has to offer largely due to the work and sacrifice of our ancestors. Thus as a way to honor them, we strive to preserve the history of their journeys. Participating in organizations such as Find A Grave allows us to do just that.
Bruce's family includes the surnames: Doeller, Felthes, Gumtow, Hachman, Hechley, Keis, Koppy, Linz, Paterlick, Probst, Ringloff, Salzl, Schmidt, Streitz, Urban, Wiener.
Wendy's family includes the surnames: Allerton, Burow, Clark, Cushman, Dawson, Dumerce, Eaton, Johnson, Jones, Judkins, Kraft, Miller, Moore, Pearcy, Priest, Rahn, Robideaux (aka Robidoux), Smart, Spencer, Stevens, Stewart, Walker, Weins.
If you have information about any of our families we would love to hear from you. Let's trade stories.

|D. Gould Hall||RE: Anthony McKnight|
Bruce - I just now rec'd an email telling me you left a message last month. Mmmm...wonder why? Anyway, thank you for letting me know about Anthony McKnight not having a headstone. Always sad when someone dies in service of their country and there is no headstone. I wonder if one could be ordered for him?
Thank you for contacting me,

Yes, please. Thank you!!
|Gail Infanti||RE: William Franklin|
Hi Bruce and Wendy, Thank you for your help. Unfortunately, I don't have any pics of either Pvt. Erastus or William Franklin who are buried in Memphis National Cemetery. In doing my genealogy research, I learned about their unfortunate death. My direct line is with their only surviving sister, Elizabeth Jane Franklin Hollen. I learned through a book published, (Biographical History of Central Kansas, 1902, pp.719-720), the history of this family. Erastus and William were two of three sons who died as a result of the Civil War. Erastus died from wounds received. William died as a result of a disease contacted in camp. PTV. Joseph died from war injuries and is buried in Vicksburg National. I would like to credit each of these three "Heros!!" by properly adding info about their families, etc. Their father, Erastus, also served in War of 1812! As I child, growing about 80 miles from Gettysburg and 50 from Philadelphia, the history of the Revolutionary and Civil War has always been very endeared in my hear. There are three more brothers that lived after the end of the Civil War, one for sure of which also served in the Civil War. I am still researching that family. I will eventually update all that info to the Findagrave.com site. Thank you for all you do to assist all of our families who are compassionate about learning of the many who made sacrifices so that we can live with freedom in a great nation!!!

Thanks for checking. If you wouldn't mind attaching an Unknown Soldier Marker and a note explaining that he has no grave marker there to his memorial, that would be appreciated. Thanks! Mary

|Family Search||RE: Joseph Elledge|
I found in his military record that Joseph Elledge was taken to a hospital in Memphis and died there. I read that they buried the Union soldiers in what would become the National Cemetery in Memphis.
Some kind of memorial stone online would be nice... especially with Memorial Day coming up. Every one of these soldiers needs to be remembered by the country they served!
thanks for your help,
