|Julius Redmond||USA Vets.|
81 graves have been detected at the Camp Jefferson Davis site. Using a 1893 map, GPS and Divining rods they were located. 113 unmarked graves about 3000 west were detected but most are believed to be Union and Confederate Vets. I also worked with the Jackson County Genealogy Society in exhuming and reburial of six 1848 USA officers from Greenwood Island. In 1848 we had three camps in Jackson County, Jefferson Davis, Lawson and Corrine (Dragoons).

|Elizabeth Needham||George W Croshaw|
His wife Betsy Thurston Croshaw is also on the headstone. Can you transfer to me for a time so that I can update them both - they are Mayflower descendants and I would like to link the other family memorials and names. If, that does not happen then I have to create a duplicate and I would prefer not to do that. Thank you.

|Stevan Rich||RE: Mexican War Veterans|
Happy to! If there are any others please let me know. I think the remaining guys in Mexico City are Civil War vets, but some may have served MW as well.
|Stevan Rich||Mexico Cemetery|
There are various Mexican War vets buried there. I just now transferred Slaughter. May I transfer the others?
|timcdfw||OBD Childress - Lockley Cem|
I think I understand your effort to link all the war veterans...problem is...you have created an ADDITIONAL in the same cemetery for Obediah Childress. Such confusion. I see I am not alone here as well.
Basic rule is...One entry per burial. Keeps this site a great resource.
Perhaps a Virtual Cemetery of all the veterans you want to honor would be a better way to group these?
Thanks, just trying to help out :)
