RE: Pleasant Boatman
I'm not related in any way, and know nothing about the family. Just doing some basic looking at recent Overton Cty, TN families, and you have the extent of my knowledge. :)

Dave I lost contact with you by e-mail in 2011. Hope you are doing ok. Just wanted to let you know my dad passed away 11-03-2013. L. D. married my mom and dad 03-07-1957, baptized me in 1959 at 7th Street United Methodist Church. I sat down with my dad and showed him the pictures and the e-mails you shared. He was very happy to see those, and I want to thank you so very much. I went through a lot of family history with him, preparing him for who he would eventually see when he went to Heaven. Concerned about you sir. Please reply when you can. God bless!!

Hi Dave! I transferred William Boatman's memorial to you. I attempted to link him to his Father but I believe the memorial number you provided was incorrect. I was able to link him to his Mother and add his middle name though. I'm glad you were able to locate him finally.

Pvt Leonard W. Boatman
Hello,
Just doing some research... according to the memorial site for Pvt. Leonard W. Boatman, he is buried:

Poplar Grove National Cemetery
Petersburg
Dinwiddle County
Virginia, USA

According to Legacy (genealogy program), there is no county by the name of "Dinwiddle" in the state of Virginia, nor has there ever been one. I am informed that Petersburg is located in Fauquier County. Just thought I'd let you know so you can correct that, or let me know where the name Dinwiddle came from.

Thanks,
Kae A. English Griffith, 2nd cousin 5th removed

Dave, I wonder if you know anything about this man's parents. I think his father was William Russell Simon Knight (# 24355887), who died near Tryon OK in 1896, and his mother was Valley Vickers Knight, who died there about 1890. Could you verify any of this?

Many thanks,

Wayne
