Wallace Cemetery Hi David....I see you posted the photo for the Wallace Cemetery and was wondering do you also do Headstone Memorial photo's. There are 3 Headstone Photo Requests for this Cemetery, 2 submitted in 2014 & one in 2015....It would be nice if these Photo Request could be addressed before they age any longer. I'm specifically interested in the Headstone for Archie Boone Memorial #132935889...Any help you could provide would be great. Thanks so much...lookyloo
RE: Memorial #19812950 Hi Dave, I just got my answer from the Texas State Library and Archives Commission! Here's what they sent to me today...
"Your request for information was received by the staff of the Texas State Library and Archives Commission.
Confederate pension application number 21816 for W. J. Hicks of Cass County contains a deposition of William Allison dated February 17, 1911. Allison’s deposition indicates W. J. Hicks enlisted in Company D of Good’s Battalion for the year 1864 at Mount Pleasant, Texas. Hicks’ pension application also contains a deposition of C. W. Wright dated February 18, 1911. Wright’s deposition indicates W. J. Hicks served until June of the year 1865.
Should you wish to continue your research on Good’s Battalion, you may wish to contact the Historical Research Center at Hill College’s Texas Heritage Museum in Hillsboro, Texas. Their holdings include a number of unit histories. Contact information may be found on their Web site at:" www.hillcollege.edu/museum/research-center.html
Thank you so much for trying to help me. I really appreciate it!!
Darling Swain Hi David - Finally found the true identity of Darling Swain, wife of Andrew Gardner Swain #11038392 who you wrote the great bio for. Turns out she is Anna T. Hyde, daughter of Robert Hyde and Anna Keith. But another thing you should note was her oldest sister Alice Hyde married Quentin Horr who was in the Confederate Army out of Texas. Was in the 7th Texas Infantry, Company D. Sent an edit for the Darling memorial. Thanks for all your help. Bill.
A biography has been added to the memorial of this Confederate physician. As you can see, he practiced medicine in your area. I found this Confederate to be especially difficult to research because he does not have a Compiled Service Record filed under G&S or under the regiments in which he served. There is one card in the Misc folder which I added to his memorial. The rest of what I found about his military service is in the Arkansas volume of Confederate Military History. This is probably because he served in the Trans-Mississippi and that volume has a nice appendix with information on physicians in that department. If you have any more information on Dr. Fisher, I hope you will share it with me.

RE: Memorial #19812950 Thx Dave, yes, I have a copy of his pension application, but it does not list his unit. I think I'm going to request his records (if there are any) from the National Archives in D.C. That's what our local librarian recommended yesterday.
