Bio and Links
Bio Photo I originally joined in 2002 while researching family on What a great data pool of info! Since my involvement, I have sadly discovered so many family cemeteries and smaller public cemeteries have been plowed under, paved over or just sadly neglected. Many of our war heroes have no respectable resting place, much less a marker. Many loved ones, many children, have no one left to care for their graves. Please ask your local groups, scouts, churches, civic, etc. to "adopt" a cemetery and take care of it. Monument dealers will work with you on simple markers for these graves. This is our history. This is our heritage. The Veteran Affairs Office will provide free markers for any Revolutionary War, Civil War, Spanish War, War of 1812 and any war on foreign shores. Thank you in advance for you consideration in these matters... and God Bless America!

RE: Pvt. George Shippy
I have him listed in my tree George W. Shippey. I was told by the Genealogy Society in Des Moines, Iowa that he was buried at Civil War Cemetery 2 & 3 Jeffersonville Clark County Indiana, USA. What did you mean by "because I will need to move him or delete him"?

I have no idea, for some reason I got the feeling the stone may have been for a baby...but it is broken and worn.
I wonder if the Medina Co. Veterans office could help or the historical society.

Thanks for contacting me. William H. Dennis may have been in the civil war but I don't know for certain. There were several mem named William H. Dennis listed as being in the civil war. He appears to have died before his wife's 2nd marriage in 1865 so there a possibility that he died during the war.

RE: Macon Barber
Hi Gail!
I am not able to find anything on Macon R. Barber. I do have a Macon S. Barber who was born after the civil war. Quick search shows Jacksonville Hospital in Indiana. Is that what you have also? Do you think Confederate soldiers would have been treated here or just Union soldiers. Thank you. Please let me know if you have any more info and I will search.

Hi Gail. What was your source for Andrew dying at Camp Joe Holt/Jefferson Civil War Hospital? It conflicts with the unit roster's notes.

You do such a wonderful job. Do you have a more exact location for Reeves Cem other than South Reeves Road. Thanks, Bill
