William R Trout 16th GVI
Hi Ed

Would you mind checking your "List of Confederate Soldiers Interred in Soldiers’ Lots, Laurel Grove Cemetery, Savannah, Georgia" for the name of Pvt William R Trout Co G 16th GVI, killed at Gettysburg. Just wondering if he was identified/ removed to Laurel Grove along with others. Thanks for your help.

Best regards
Laura

Pvt James R Cosby #137384252
Ed,

Thanks so much for letting me know about the location of this grave. I have completed the memorial for Pvt Cosby and would appreciate it if you would take a look at it and let me know if I have left anything out that you feel should be included.

Best regards.

RE: 16th GA Infantry Grave Locations
Hi Ed

Thank you so much for this information! Sorry I meant to list the burial locations of the ones I had from your list. I believe M Fissels is the name of the landowner where Albert Allen was originally buried. "Fissels Woods" is one of the named locations at Gettysburg so I assume that M Fissels is the owner of the land.

The quote can be found here. http://www.researchonline.net/gacw/unit57.htm#.VEGM82ddV1Y

In the quote Cosby is named as "J R Crosby" but his name is actually Cosby. Ill create a memorial for him with all the information and send you a link when its done. Thanks again for letting me know where he is. :-)

RE: 16th GA Infantry Grave Locations
Hi Ed,

I forgot to ask....do you happen to know what happened to the remains of the other members of the 16th who were buried near the hospitals at Gettysburg? Do you know if all of them were removed to Laurel Grove North? They are listed as follows:

The following Southern Heroes of the 16th Georgia Regiment were buried at Gettysburg:
M. Fissels East side of woods, across the creek

Albert Allen, Co A, 16th Georgia

Cunninghams place across the creek from Crawfords Wofords Brigade Hospital, McLaws Division, Longstreets Corps

J R Crosby, Co. B, 16th Georgia
A E Oliver, Co B, 16th Georgia
J D Reed or Reid, Co C, 16th Georgia
A B F.
W B Elrod, Co. G, 16th Georgia
7 graves unmarked and unknown

RE: 16th GA Infantry Grave Locations
Thanks Ed. I had three of those but am not able to locate a Find A Grave memorial for James R Cosby. It doesnt show up on a Find A Grave cemetery search of Laurel Grove North. Do you happen to know if a memorial has been created for Pvt Cosby and if so, what is its number? If not, I am happy to create one for him. Carded records include a statement of money owed him by Capt Venable of Co B 16th Regt Inf. The statement contains an abundance of information about him including a physical description, place of birth, and profession at enlistment.

Thanks again for your help and the information!

Best regards

RE: Major Lewis Moorhead
Hi Ed,
Sorry to be slow answering your questions. As far as I know the "Major" in Major Lewis Moorhead's name does not refer to military rank, but is in fact his first name. I didn't create his Find A Grave Memorial nor do I manage it. He died in 1864 at the age of 49. And I don't have any source verifying he served in the Confederacy.
His daughter was an ancestor of my first husband. I've not studied his brother Ira's history.
Sorry I can't be of further help to you.
But thanks for reaching out.
Jeanne

RE: Thomas A. Jeffers of SC
I saw a Thomas Jeffers listed in the 1880 census for Savannah Ga. he was born about 1840 in SC and was boarding with a Mrs. Fitzgerald Pelote and was working as a clerk in a cotton warehouse. Cotton was big business in Savannah so he might have come here for a job?????

Hi..I have 11 Thomas Jeffers in my tree but none from SC.. My Jeffers line was from Illinois and Texas. My southern line has Shiver and Thompson from Kershaw but the Jeffers don't ever appear in SC. Sorry... C J Smith
