Regarding William Frederic
Thanks for the information for his bio. Would you be willing to accept a transfer of his memorial? You have done a lot of research on the Frederics, and could do a much better job of maintaining his memorial than I can. Just let me know.

Thanks for your message. So far I've linked Wilma to her parents and added a memorial for her husband Godrey "Gus" Grassl. I be working more on this later in the weekend. Best wishes.

H. C. SAWYER, Memorial #97935735
Hi - thank you so much for your excellent research! I believe we have a match. I had already been doing some investigating to try to prove out the men buried in the two Confederate lots at Linwood, and I have the following: John H. Martin, in his history of Columbus, GA ("Making of a Modern City," volume 2, 1874, p. 173, reports N. C. SAWYER on a list of soldiers who died in Columbus (I had thought all of these had did during 1864, since the list appears in the chapter for that year, but your exact death date proves that to be an incorrect assumption). Also, the local Sexton, R. T. SIMONS, issued a list of Confederate soldiers who had died at the Columbus hospitals and were buried in the city cemetery for Whites (later named Linwood Cemetery); this list was published in the Columbus (GA) Daily Sun newspaper on 11 FEB 1866, and was not complete and may not have been entirely accurate, as the introduction reports that the hospital books had been "carried away and destroyed," probably by Wilson's Raiders in April 1865. The list does include an entry for N. C. SAWYER, Company A, 56th Regiment, Georgia Infantry (no dates were provided with this list). I think it's safe to say that your Neal C. SAWYER is the man buried in Row 7 of the upper Confederate section (a.k.a Columbus Guards Section). Thanks so much for the information you've provided! By the way, I also have a couple of SAWYER connections in some of the kin I have researched locally - I wonder if they could be any of your people? - John, Contributor #46870015

Lieut John Gibbs Sawyers
Hi, My name is Jessika Rutherford and while working on my family tree I came across you note on the flowers you left on Lieut John Gibbs Sawyers memorial about him being murdered. I was wondering if you could tell me where or how you got that information. Thank you so much,

H. C. SAWYER, Memorial #97935735
Hi - I am researching the men buried in the two Confederate sections at Linwood Cemetery in Columbus, Georgia. As far as I have been able to tell so far (and I could be wrong about this), all of the soldiers buried in these two sections seem to have died during the war. Do you have any information that ever places your Henry C. SAWYER in the Columbus area? Is there any reason to think that if he died in Houston County, his remains would be carried to Columbus instead of buried where his wife is? I notice that the units of service don't match either. Thanks - John, Contributor #46870015

You certainly don't owe me an apology. I have appreciated that you are so interested and have information to share.

RE: John Sawyer, Jr. - Grand Trunk Cemetery
“Not a game to see who can find the most graves,” said the person who’s only added 62 memorials in the past 3 years, and yet has hogged management of 367 of them. Why don’t you spend your time adding more memorials instead of bothering other members? Or maybe go out and fulfill a photo request or two for members? In other words, try doing something that might actually help people instead of cluttering up other members’ memorials with guessed-at or assumed information. Stop pestering people, like asking Marianne to have a cemetery listed only under one name. First of all, she has no more ability to change the name of a cemetery than you do. And secondly, the more cross-referenced a cemetery is under however many alternate names it might have, the less chance of the duplication of memorials. Having multiple names listed for a cemetery is a GOOD thing (as long as they are true alternate names of that cemetery, which is the case with Grand Trunk). But you obviously have no idea of how FindAGrave works, so that concept is clearly beyond you. Now please stop bothering us and crawl back into your hole or wherever it is that you believe you’re king of the world.
