Bio and Links
Bio Photo My family is from the Mississippi Delta but I currently live in West Tennessee. I'm interested in old cemeteries and family genealogy.
I'm also interested in the Civil War and tracking down my relatives that fought and died. I have researched the casualties of the Battle of Fort Pillow, April 12, 1864. I've compiled a list of 100 Confederate soldiers and ~580 Union soldiers, both black and white, who were killed, wounded or taken prisoner in that battle.
I have access to service records of Confederate soldiers which can tell a story about the soldier. My main interest is soldiers who were in Mississippi units or fought in Mississippi. Lately, I've had to learn more about the cavalry operations in West Tennessee and North Mississippi.

RE: Dr. Joseph D. Holt (1835-1901)
Hi Steve, I just found the data when reviewing the 1901 Confederate Veteran Magazine. This was done in 1901 and there is no way we can prove it as the gospel. I have no connection to the family nor am I researching the family. It is usually heresay when things were printed by persons, and could be wrong. Heck, on the census data I have reviewed, I know that the information is wrong,l but it was based on what the person told the census taker, and was never verified. These mysteries are all around, I just like to share what I have found. I love history and appreciate you concern about accuracy.

RE: David O Tritsch, Gettysburg Nat Cem
Hi Steve,

That is interesting. My guess is that he is buried at Gettysburg, and the stone at Deer Creek would be a memorial stone. We have several memorial stones at Gettysburg here, but those all have "In Memory Of" at the top of the stone. That would be my guess.

Best Regards,

RE: LTC Reuben Loomis
From the little that I remember reading, LtC Reuben LOOMIS was shot in one place & died some time later in another place. I believe he was shot in a battle in Upshur County, WV and died a week or a month later as a result of this wound. I'd appreciate your research input because accuracy is my main goal and I shall also do more research on my Loomis family. I have 2 Reuben Loomis ancestors and so I've always been interested in this other Reuben Loomis. (always seemed to be only 1 LtColonel Reuben LOOMIS)

RE: Flowers Cemetery - Kilmichael
Steve, his marker is at Flowers Cemetery in Kilmichael. I will look at my pictures to see who his marker is by. It is a very small cemetery and should be easy to locate the marker.

Thanks, I try to track them down with any info that they might have given when they signed up and then I try to follow them on census' before and after the war. It must have been tough for them.
