Researching 46 Civil War soldiers originally buried on the Ruffin Plantation, one mile north of Meade Station and East of the railroad, outside Petersburg June 1864. Found 35 of them in the City Point National Cemetery, Hopewell. Still trying to identify the other 11.

Pvt. Matthew Bittles
A sincere thanks to you for the nice memorial page you created for Pvt. Matthew Bittles. He has been the focus of much of my family research over the years. I love him and am so glad that he is honored and remembered. This is a tremendous service you are doing in making these memorial pages available. Now Matthew really isn't lost or forgotten. Thanks again.

more info on City Point
The ranger I talked to today also said that some of the re-internments from this area went to Poplar Grove.

City point pictures
You can have all the city point pictures from 2000-3000 if you want them. There is too much to mail though. Low res would be 1-2 gigs, high res 6-8 gigs.

I have 4 more rows to go until I get to 3000 (about 500 graves).

City Point
The VA web site here http://gravelocator.cem.va.gov/j2ee/servlet/NGL_v1 has a more full and accurate listing of who is buried at City Point then the information they submitted to findagrave. Too bad you can only search by last name, not plot numbers.

MATTHEWS, JOHN J. NY.
I found the memorial. The last name was spelled wrong.
