I'm Thor Eric Chester.
I live in Texas.
I am a descendant of the Hill's.
I see you have a memorial here on Find A Grave for him.
Do you have proof of his commission?
From what I've found he was a Cpl.
As for his father, I came across some records where it states he died on Christmas Day and was buried along the road.
Some record I came across said the father was buried in El Paso. But looking at how far a troop could march in one day, and considering they left from San Antonio, I think he was buried just above Fredericksburg. There is an area north of there called El Paso.
That all said, I live in Victoria Texas.
I'm a graduate of Texas A&M.I do like Aggie jokes.
I'm on ancestry and fold3.
If there is anything I can do to help you in family searching please feel free to contact me at the following:
I may be signed in on her under my girlfriends name and ID. That's Judy Turner.
She's really into genealogy. I MEAN REALLY INTO IT...
But that all said, glad to meet you.

Pascual Orozco death cert
Hi, I found Pascual Orozco's death certificate. The official Texas record says death in Van Horn, Culberson, Texas, but that may simply be where he was pronounced dead.

Harriett Johns Roberts
There is a duplicate grave at this cemetery and she has that Harriett married another Johns after Mr Roberts died. Do you know if that's so? Thanks.

Duplicate Memorial AND Cemetery!
I recently began photographing every gravestone in cemeteries around me and uploading them to find-a-grave. I found one stone in particular belonging to Rev. Luther Turner that I photographed, created his memorial. Well, I searched for his name and found you created his memorial prior (Find A Grave Memorial# 117873204), and have some great info and pictures...Thank You for your hard work!

Well, he is the only memorial you have listed in your 'cemetery' because it is a duplicate cemetery. Here is my memorial for Luther: Find A Grave Memorial# 147438423. I would be happy to delete it if you can move your memorial to the proper graveyard since you have such wonderful info and pictures on yours!

Thank you for your time and have a wonderful day!

Nathaniel Enoch Roberts
Hi! I am trying to fill in some holes in my family tree. I believe Nathaniel Enoch Roberts, 1857-1899, is the son of Nathaniel Enoch Roberts, 1829-1869, not Nathan Miles Roberts. The census reports for Nathaniel Enoch (b 1857) show his dad was born in GA. Nathaniel Enoch (b 1829) was born in GA and he had a son Nathaniel. Nathan Miles was born in SC, and I could not find a census report with a son Nathan born in 1857. However, if you have something that shows he's the son of Nathan Miles, could you please let me know? Thank you!

Ida Griffin Harrison
Hi. Clyde Harrison is my father. His father was BB Harrison and his father was William Bartlett Harrison who was married to Ida Leona Griffin Harrison. BB, WB and Ida are all buried in Chiefland Cemetery as are my mother's parents. On Bill Boyd's site I find Ida listed as the daughter of John Harvard Griffin but on the Find A Grave page for him she is not listed as his child. You mention she was your grandfather's sister but I don't know who your grandfather is. Could you help me out with this ID please. I have been emailing with June Tedder Martin who also left you a message regarding Clyde. I am researching Harrisons, Griffins, Whites, Hinsons and Birges. Thanks.

Griffin, David and Jesse Andrews, Twins

Thanks much for your information on the GRIFFIN twin brothers killed at Bashi Creek. I found your post, from my search of my GRIFFIN clan.

By going back, and forth using your comments,on David Griffin I was able to build on Jesse, as well as find the Bethel Cemetery, in Clarke County, Alabama, plus find the wife of William, who is Anne Drinkard. Anne is buried with William at Bethel Cemetery.

James Larkins (62815289
I've been researching a group of Civil War soldiers in Washington State. Samuel Larkins is one of those men. According to his pension record, he and his brother joined the same Company - Co. K, 101 USCI on January 1865. I found his brother's name, James and tracked James to Arizona where he died in 1905 due to Alcohol. From the time he mustered out, he stayed in the Army from Feb 1867 to Jan 1896 where he was discharged at Fort Huachua, AZ. He was a member of the 24th Infantry, 41st Infantry and 10 Calvary. He applied for his pension Feb 20, 1900 in Arizona. Both he and his brother were born in Kentucky; his parents also were born in Kentucky. Prior to going into the war, his brother was owned by Mr. Hopkins in Cadis, Kentucky.

I believe that the man you gave a biography is identify incorrectly and his grave marker is incorrect also.
