|Mary Alice||RE: Mary Kesterson|
I'm sorry, I just found your question on findagrave.
John and Della Shouse lived in Jefferson Twp so I think the death record is the correct person. I haven't researched the Kesterson family, but I don't think the different spellings are unusual. The census records come up with all kind of unusual spellings 'cause people couldn't spell very well back then. :-)

You are VERY welcome. If you see some I missed, just yell

Hi, John....I apologize but I just found your email. What Marlings were we discussing? Have I already transferred them to you? If not, please just tell me who they are and I'm happy to transfer.

Hi, I don't know who Mancel's father was. I got the date of his birth and death from the Social Security Death Index. You might ask Mick's wife, as Mancel's wife was her sister. I do have her obituary, but no mention is made of her husband. If you find out that I have erred in what I have down, please let me know. Also, you have Bob Wever in the wrong cemetery, he was buried at Talbott, not Fairview.

The picture of Oakwood Cemetery was taken in 1865 after the war. The union soldiers were buried in mass graves at Oakwood with no markers along with USCT. All Union remains were removed from Oakwood Cemetery in 1866. Please do not re write history you will confuse people. He is buried in one of the National Cemeteries. Richmond National, more than likely. Seven Pines, Fort Harrison, Cold Harbor or Glendale National Cemetery. Even what you have about Libby Prison does not mention where they are buried.

John my source was the family heritage book from Monroe or Lawrence County. I found at the Ft Wayne genealogy library. Could also be found in Bedford, IN or Bloomington, IN. I talked to Julius Blackwell's daughter in 2011. She was going on 100 then. I live in Michigan but most of my heritage is in Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee, Virginia and east coast areas. I have posted on ancestry.com several trees that might help you also. Good Luck.

Maybe you can start a memorial for the dead for Libby Prison. There's none on Find A Grave. Not being mean just up front about the history of Oakwood.

Cemetery notes and/or description:
Shockoe Hill Cemetery is now generally inactive. Within its grounds are buried such luminaries as or longest-serving United States Supreme Court Chief Justice, John Marshall, and his wife Mary Willis Ambler Marshall. The cemetery, established in 1822, was the second municipal graveyard to be opened in Richmond when the grounds of St. John's Churchyard, the city's oldest cemetery, neared its capacity for internments. Revolutionary War heroes such as Peter Francisco and Major James Gibbons, as well as Richmond's first mayor of 1782, Dr. William Foushee, are buried here, along with 220 Confederate and 577 UNION SOLDIERS of the Civil War. Many other notables such as Elizabeth Van Lew, the Union spy who operated a safe house during the Civil War; Elmira Shelton, said to be Edgar Allan Poe's fiancÚ and inspiration for the Lost Lenore of his poem "The Raven"; Jane Stanard, an object of desire referred to by Edgar Allan Poe in his poem "To Helen", Poe was known to spend many hours pining at her grave site; 1830's Congressman John Mercer Patton; 1840's Congressman John Minor Botts; and 1805-1808 Virginia Governor William H. Cabell are interred here. This cemetery is on the Virginia Landmarks Register and National Register of Historic Places. Maybe he is buried here. But not at Oakwood. Also Hollywood Cemetery had union soldiers buried there. They to were removed from the cemetery. I hope you find him. But your history is not quit right. I live in Richmond and have done the research on the soldiers buried at Oakwood and know the history very very well. I know the History of the City of Richmond. I know where they buried all the union soldiers after the war. I have the names of all the soldiers buried in Oakwood all are Confederates. Like I said there are no remains of union soldiers buried in Oakwood Cemetery in Richmond, Va. *They removed them in 1866* They are in the National Cemetery's around Richmond all union soldiers. Show me in the records that this soldier was buried in Oakwood. If the book says that they are still buried in Oakwood then the book is wrong. See in his memorial the last picture I put in. It is the history marker for Oakwood Cemetery put up by the National Park Service. No mention of union soldiers buried in Oakwood.
