RE: Virginia Silvestro‏
The best concise documentation may be the Florida Death Index, 1877-1998 ( Virginia Jay Silvestro born 24 Apr 1915 and died 09 Feb 1982. This lists her full middle name and the birth date that agrees with my records (except Social Security Death Index lists 25 Apr 1915). She told me she was named for her father, Jay, when I asked why she had a boy's name. Thanks, MarGene Fortman

Great Idea
Creating a virtual cemetery for civil war soldiers of any state is a wonderful idea. Makes it easier for families to ressearch

Rev David Elkins
Greetings! I'm contacting you as you originally created the entry for Rev. David Elkins ( This is the first mention I've ever seen of David's wife as Elisabeth Estep. Do you remember where the original information may be found that you cited in the memorial? I'd like to find the source so that I might use it as well. Rev. Elkin is my g-g-g grandfather. Thank you so much!

One of Daniel Cripe's Sons was not added to the list. Jacob Cripe was my Grandfather and his Son. I also believe the name of his second wife was Mary Mohler. I do have information on this that I can formally send you. Thanks Iris Cripe-Eng

I have talked to a lot of family members and this one slipped them.. Lena (Richard's Ex-wife) said she remembered their son (Gary Bruce) going over to help load injured soldiers. Lena had a stroke a few years back and we have decided to side with you , the government doesn't make mistakes that big. So I will not bother you anymore, you are to busy. Thank you for all your help.
Thank you for all you do for Find A Grave You are the best!!

Thought Richard had went to Germany and found that to be true but my sister Bobbie Bell said he could have been on a ship or plane that went to deliver goods or something like that . I am going to talk to his first wife Lena Mae within the week. I am so curious this is a little piece we did not know. Thank you for all your work on Find A Grave
very impressive.
