You're welcome! The cemetery doesn't have that info. You would have to contact the VA office at 800-827-1000.
|Macso||RE: Survilla J. Warren|
You are very welcome. I'm glad that Survilla has found a family member to care for her. Chris

Thank you for taking the time to find and take this picture
|C & N Rasmussen||Oops!|
Sorry, I meant to say the 5th Iowa Cavalry, not the 5th Iowa Infantry. Don't worry, I put your ancestor, Thomas Hall, correctly in the 5th Iowa Cavalry virtual cemetery. I just misspoke . . .
|C & N Rasmussen||RE: Iowa Civil War soldiers|
My interest is in all Iowa Civil War regiments, not just the 5th Iowa Infantry Regiment. My parents were born in Iowa (although my father's parents were actually Danish immigrants) and I have several ancestors from my mother's side who served in Iowa regiments during the Civil War. My mother's ancestors first came to Iowa territory in 1838. One of my Grt-grt-grt-grandfathers was killed at Vicksburg and is buried at the National Cemetery there. All total, I have eight Iowa Civil War direct ancestors (as well as several other siblings and spouses), who served mostly in the 17th & 30th Iowa Infantry, and the 3rd & 7th Iowa Cavalry.
Because of this, I became interested in documenting the location of ALL Iowa Civil War veteran gravesites. Over 76,000 Iowa men served in the Civil War, with Iowa contributing 49 infantry regiments, 9 cavalry regiments, and 4 light artillery batteries to the Union effort. I've been to several states, in part to photograph the headstones of Iowa CW soldiers, and you can find Iowa CW soldier gravesites in virtually every one of the lower 48 states.
So while there are thousands of CW veterans buried in Iowa, I am only interested in documenting those who served in Iowa regiments. I'll leave gravesites of the veterans of other state regiments to other people, because it will be hard enough for me to document those who served in Iowa units. That's why I ask anybody who comes across Iowa veteran gravesites to let me know their names and the location of their final resting place. Believe me, I really appreciate everybody's help. I'm determined to bring the men who served in these Iowa regiments back together again, even if it's only in virtual cemeteries.

Thank you so much for taking such a great picture of the marker for Henry George Cloos. I also really appreciate your inclusion of a copy of the map that shows where his marker is located.

|C & N Rasmussen||RE: Thomas J Hall|
Sorry it's taken me so long to get back to you, but I want to thank you for letting me know about your ancestor, Thomas Hall. I've added him to the 5th Iowa Cavalry Regiment virtual cemetery as you requested. If you know of any other Iowa Civil War soldier grave sites, I would appreciate it if you would let me know about them.
Also, just as a suggestion, it is customary to use the rank of a soldier on a memorial only when that soldier dies while on active duty. Since your ancestor survived the war and died as a civilian, listing him as Pvt. Thomas Hall incorrectly implies that he died in service. Also, I would add his full middle name of Jefferson to his memorial, instead of just 'J'. Again, this is just my suggestion, since you manage the memorial, you certainly can do with it as you please.
Thanks again for the information on Thomas Hall.
|Loramc||RE: Hiram and Mary Carr|
I'll be looking forward to those pictures if you get an opportunity. You made a note on one picture that William C. Carr may be Hiram Henry Carr's younger brother. However, William C. Carr is actually Hiram Henry and Mary's son.
Again, thanks so much for taking your valuable time to find these. They look fantastic on both Find A Grave and Ancestry!
