|Bio and Links|
I am a retired Huntsville Alabama Police Officer. I have been a student of local history for many years. My main interests lie in Alabama Civil War Units. One of the saddest things about the Civil War was that so many young men left home and were never heard from again. Their families never knew how or where they died or where they were buried. Thanks to the work of many Findagrave contributors, I have reunited many of these brave men,if only in a virtual cemetery. These cemeteries are a constant work in progress. I welcome any and all info on any of my memorials and am always happy to transfer your kin folk. If you visit the memorial of any of these brave men, please honor them in any way you see fit. Whether or not you believe their cause was just, does not matter. What matters is that men from both sides fought and died protecting the only way of life they had ever known. "Alas! In how many Southern homes aching hearts waited through weary months for news of loved ones that never came until the suspense was replaced by the real certainty that the absent one had helped to swell the unknown dead of the Wheatfield, the Peach Orchard, or the Devil's Den of a Northern land."--J. Howard Wert. Sometimes I come home from work with a sore back or tired feet or maybe even a headache. Then I think of a 16 year old boy lying wounded in a dark field. He's hundreds of miles from home. He's thirsty,hungry and cold. He's crying for his Mama. Or I think of Robert and Sarah Milling, of Dallas County, who lost their five sons to the Confederate cause in the 20th Alabama Infantry. Suddenly, I don't feel so bad afterall. ********* I'm having some problems with my E-Mail and can't reply or send anything out. Please send me a public message through Findagrave if possible so I can respond back in a timely manner.*********|

|jsellmanjenkins||RE: Hezekiah Hardin|
My husband and I have already discussed this. I emailed the caretaker at the cemetery to make sure we can get approval from them. After that we will start the VA process. I may be asking you for more help. Regardless, I will keep you posted.

|jsellmanjenkins||RE: Hezekiah Hardin|
Hutch, Thank you for the information. We visited the Confederate area of Hillcrest Cemetery in Holly Springs, Mississippi. There were many graves but most of them were marked as "Unkown". By the records we think that Hezekiah is one of these "Unknown" soldiers. Thank you for listing him on find a grave and helping us find his final resting place. It will be my honor to care for his memorial. Joy Sellman Jenkins
I have a question about a grave you posted for Hezekiah Hardin. The number is 126662040. How did you find out that he is buried at Hillcrest Cemetery in Holly Springs. Hezekiah was my husband's great, great, great grandfather. He enlisted in the 25th Alabama with three of his sons, George, William, and Jonathan. Hezekiah and William both died in 1862 in Mississippi. We have been looking for both of them for some time now.
I appreciate your help,

I'm searching my family genealogy and have reason to believe that Thomas H. Lewis is the father of Martha Emma Lewis Whitlow. She was from Daviston and moved to Texas in the 1890's with her husband and their 3 children.
Any information you may have would be helpful.
