Bio and Links
Bio Photo I (on the right) am a member of the Sons of Confederate Veterans, Private Lorenzo Leigh Bennitt Camp #773 in Durham, North Carolina. I am a member of the Point Lookout POW Descendants Organization. My wife and I have been doing genealogy together for almost 20 years. It is our passion. Through my genealogy work I have identified over 900 kinfolk (grandfathers, uncles, and cousins) that served in the Confederate States infantry, cavalry, and navy.

My loving wife and best friend Joyce passed away on Christmas Day 2012 after a battle with pancreatic cancer. When I return to taking my trips to libraries, archives, and cemeteries to continue my genealogy research it will be very difficult without my better half. We worked so well as a team. I miss her. Her memorial is #102701133.

Mr Nash

I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your wife. I saw where you had provided information to another member and I wanted to thank you for all your hard work on Find A Grave. I saw on that post where you are the 5th ggrandson of Capt. William Wood. I was just wondering if you are related to Capt Henry C Nash of Co A 16th Georgia Volunteer Infantry? Company A was organized at Madison County, GA and was aka "Madison Greys." Captain Nash was killed at the Battle of Fort Sanders Knoxville TN.

I wanted to let you know that I am researching the 16th and during that process trying to locate the gravesites of as many men as possible. Although I have not yet located his grave, I have created a memorial for Captain Nash. If you are related, I am happy to transfer it to you.

Best regards.

Mr. Nash,

I am so sorry about the loss of your wife. But I wanted to thank you so much for all you do. The pictures and descriptions are absolutely wonderful and such a great help.

If you have time, I do have a question about the Johnson family reunion photo clips. In the picture of Titus Winborne Johnson, would you happen to know which wife is in the picture? (Melinda Campbell or Amanda Nance?

Thank you again for your hard work and contributions to genealogy.

God Bless,
Sharon Gault Baker

Grave of Daniel Nance
I'm working on a volume of grave locations for veterans of Co. L 22nd NC Infantry. Could I have your permission to use the picture you posted of Daniel Nance's grave in this compilation? I will cite you as the source.

Thank you.

Re:Luvania Oakley
Thank you for adding her stone photo. Your dedication is appreciated. Sorry to read about your wife and partner in life. Thanks for all the work you are doing for the Confederacy. Many of my ancestors fought, died, or suffered injuries. My belief is they were fighting not for slavery, but to prevent what we have today, an over-reaching and intrusive Federal government.

Lewis Snider
Hey John. I see you maintain the memorials for Lewis Snider Sr. and Jr. I didn't know that the "Old Buck Wall Place" cemetery even existed. I'm going to have to drive down there this week and find that. Is it difficult to access? On someone's private property?

Those two men would have been my 4th and 5th great grandfathers on my mother's side. (She was a Snider) She passed away in December, but was very much into genealogy. I just got access to her account today. It says you and she were 5th cousins, once removed. I think that makes you and I 5th cousins twice removed.

Do a search for Reuben Wood s Library. He was a lawyer, very prominent in Randolph Co. NC. A son of John wood Jr. from Middleboro, MA 1716-1794.
about 10 pages to work through, but enough to put one of the families together.

On the life of David Wood/Woods in Vigo, he left NC before coming to Indiana and went to Virginia for 6 years. I think I am looking for a different set of Wood/Woods that the one above.
However, the David's were legion. Orange Co. NC had a huge bunch of Wood.
