My Virtual Cemeteries.

Union Veterans.
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. (

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).

RE: Seth B. Hickock
Thank you for your prompt reply. That information matches everything I know about him. His father Barzillai Hickok was my 3rd great grandfather. I will delete the record I found in San Diego the month after Seth B's death, although it really did seem like that was him.

Sgt Seth B Hickok
Hi Steve,
I have a question about the source of the death date for Seth Hickok. I have found what I believe to be a record for him in San Diego as of August 1890, just after the reported date of death. He would be a distant cousin and I don't have any personal knowledge of him but I would like to verify the source of the July 1890 date of death.
It looks like you have done a huge amount of work in memorializing these service men. Thank you.

RE: Rodockway Drew
Rocockway's grave is in Sect 1 Lot 46 Space G. I thought I had added an edit to this effect. Sorry. What do you have that shows he is a VET? Please send me a jpg copy and I'll see if the cemetery can get a memorial for him.

RE: Haine Photo
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 :-)
