|Bio and Links|
I began doing family genealogy over 30 years ago.After I retired from the military, I became very interested in the Civil War. I had visited many civil war cemeteries, and the many unknown soldiers buried in them. Every soldier who died in war for his country should be known and honored. And the families of the soldier should be able to know where he is buried, this has been my goal to provide that information to those who are searching for a soldier.|
I spend a great deal of my time traveling to battlefields and cemeteries, and researching information on a soldier or person. If at anytime I can be of help or if you need more information please contact me. Or if you have more information on a soldier. If a correction needs to be made "PLEASE" contact me. Don't write an other "BIO" in the Flowers and Notes section of the Memorial. Leave a message or email me anytime.
I will tranfer memorials if it is a request made by a relative of a soldier. If you are not related please do not ask. If you have information in regards to a soldiers memorial I will be more then happy to add it.
"The Bivouac of The Dead"
The muffled drums sad roll's all beat
the soldier's last tatoo,
No more on life's parade shall meet
The brave and fallen few.
The neighing troop, the flashing blade,
The bugles stirring blast,
The charge,the dreadful cannonade,
The din and shout are past.
Rest on embalmed and sainted dead,
Dear as the blood ye gave,
No impious footstep here shall thread.
The herbage of your grave,
On fame's enternal camping ground,
Their silent tents are spread,
And glory guards with solemn round,
The bivouac of the dead.
No vision of the morrow's strife
The warrior's dream alarms,
No braying horn nor screaming fife
At dawn shall call to arms,
No rumor of the foe's advance
Now sweeps upon the wind,
No troubled thought at midnight haunts
Of love ones left behind,
Your own proud land's heroic soil
must be your fitter grave;
She claims from war his richest spoil,
The ashes of the brave.
Note: In making correction to memorials, I will make corrections, Birth dates, Death dates, Marriage dates add a spouse or children, if they have memorials, I will not add long Bio's, I just don't have the time. If you have a Bio I will be more then happy to transfer a memorial to you to add a bio, when finished just transfer it back. I spent a great deal of time traveling to battlefields and cemeteries which takes up a lot of my time, I would be greatful for any help you can give me in regards to memorials.

|Perfield Girl||RE: Hale|
oh, duh. thx!
|Carol Page Tilson||RE: Augustus Colvin|
Please delete from Augustus Colvin's bio the phrase stating that his "Last name may also be "Colvine." That's not even possible. His surname never was Colvine. In all of his Civil War records and censuses, his surname never was written or even erroneously indexed that way.
The only reference to the name Colvine in Pennsylvania records was for a Charles Colvine who emigrated from Great Britain, landing in Philly, in 1827. And that wasn't a spelling error, he apparently changed his name. died or returned to the UK before 1830.
|Karl Stelly||RE: Brooks|
You're welcome, sir. Anything to help the cause!
Just wanted to say thanks for all of the memorials you've created for soldiers over the years. I can't tell you how many times I've come across your memorials while researching my great-grandfather's regiment, and just wanted you to know how much your hard work is appreciated. Happy Thanksgiving!
|Joyce Brunson||Thank you|
Thanks so much for the work you have done on soldiers. I was researching Francis Marion Lee who died in Murfreesboro during the Civil War and was so happy to find him on Find a Grave. We are doing a local project on Civil War soldiers from our county and I appreciate your work. Thanks for the time, effort and resources you have put into this project of yours.
|Bob McLellan||Theodore McLellan|
Thank you very much for the transfer of Theodore and allowing me to link him to his parents.
|Nadine F Ostrowski||Lawrence Kearns|
Just wanted to let you know that I found Lawrence Kearns' grave and visited last September. He was indeed in the parish cemetery at St. Mary's in Dunmore, in a place so obvious, we missed it.
So grateful for all of the help and encouragement. Recently found my gggrandmother on my grandfather's side. She died a few days after giving birth to him and her family took possession of her remains and buried her far from her family in Archbald.
|Bruce Banister||RE: Garrett Taylor|
That would be fine. I know it gave me a since of honor when I stood there in front of his stone in Corinth. Thank you
|Carol Nocella||RE: Lost soldier|
Ted, yes, I'm looking for an Andrew Shade, son of Johannes/John Shade and Anna Maria/Mary Gebhart. According to the 1850 census and a guardianship document (at age 13), he was born 1826-1827 in PA. In the 1860 census, he's age 30 giving him a birthdate of 1829-1830, but I think 1826-1827 is probably correct. He had siblings named Henry, Justina, Adam, George, Joseph, Mary Ann, John, Elizabeth and Daniel. Daniel was my gr. grandfather. I've got a note saying that Andrew never married, but I don't know that for sure. Andrew's birth family moved from PA and settled in Montgomery Co. OH about 1830. He's there in 1850. In 1860 Andrew (age 30) is living with elder brother Henry in Bryan, Williams Co. OH. That's all I know.
As I said, online I found a Civil War record for an Andrew Shade; I gave you his regiment, etc. in my previous message. I don't know if this fellow is the one I'm looking for or not. There were a couple of Andrew Shades in Ohio, but none of them were from Montgomery Co. or Williams Co. This military record says he applied for a pension in 1880, yet I cannot find "my" Andrew in any census, death record, or any other record after 1860. So this military record may very well be for another Andrew Shade, but I figure it's worth looking into. It's a real mystery, what happened to "my" Andrew. Thanks...

Can you keep your eye out for an Andrew Shade, born 1826 or 1827 in Pennsylvania, moved to Montgomery Co. Ohio as a child, served with the 128th OH Inf., Co. D in the Civil War. He might be a relative of mine who seems to disappear from all records after 1860. Thanks,
Carol (Shade) Nocella
