|Laura||RE: 16th Georgia Infantry Regiment Virtual Cemetery|
Thanks so much for your reply. My connection to the 16th GA Infantry is actually through my husbands gg grandfather William Walker Fitts who was in Co D "Danielsville Guard." He was killed in the battle of Spotsylvania at the Bloody Angle. We were lucky to have the opportunity to go last April and visit many of the battlefields where the men of the 16th GA fought including Cramptons Gap (South Mountain), Antietam, Gettysburg, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, The Wilderness, Spotsylvania, and some of the 7 days battle sites near Richmond. It seems that the places where they fought were always the places that saw the heaviest casualties and the worst engagements and it was very moving to follow along the footsteps of the Regiment and see the places in person. We stood in the Wheatfield and the Peach Orchard at Gettysburg; the Sunken Road at Fredericksburg; the Bloody Lane at Antietam; and saw Cramptons Gap where 500 Georgians tried to defend against the approach of 15000 union soldiers. At Spotsylvania where my husbands gg grandfather was killed, we were lucky to hire a very knowledgeable guide who was able to research and then show us almost precisely where the 16th GA was at the Bloody Angle and where WW Fitts died. He is not in the Confederate Cemetery and his burial is unknown. Since many of the dead were left in the trenches and the ground turned over them, we assume this was his fate. So far, I have been able to locate Find A Grave memorials for 192 members of the 16th. Here is the link to the Virtual Cemetery for the 16th GA Infantry Regiment http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=vcsr&GSvcid=394293

Sent you a previous message about Soloman M Swindle, but noticed your last name Fitzpatrick. There is also a Nathaniel Fitzpatrick listed on the roster for Co A 16th Georgia Infantry. Company A was formed in Madison County, GA so was also wondering if this might be one of your ancestors. If so, do you happen to know where he is buried and is there a link to his memorial? Here is the info I have from the roster about him: "Fitzpatrick, Nathaniel-4th Sergeant July 11, 1861. Appointed 2d Sergeant September 14, 1862. Captured at Knoxville, Tenn. December 3,1863. Released at Rock Island, Ill. May 28,1865."

I see that you may be related to Soloman M Swindle? b. 31 Aug 1842 d. 30 June 1926
Find A Grave Memorial# 50130415
Father of Lula Jane Swindle Fitzpatrick (1882 - 1957)
I sent a message to the Manager of his memorial asking if he is the same as SM Swindle listed on the roster of Co D; 16th GA Infantry CSA as follows:
"Swindle, S. M.- private August 5,1861. Captured at Gettysburg, Pa.July 2,1863. Exchanged at Point Lookout, Md. February 18, 1865. Furloughed for 30 days. (Born in Georgia.)"
The contributor replied by transferring management of the memorial to me.:-) I was just wondering if you know if your ancestor served in the 16th GA? I have created a virtual cemetery of 16th GA Infantry. My husbands gg grandfather was from Ila GA; served in the 16th; and was killed at Spotsylvania. I also have TONS of info about the Regimental history, movements, and battles if you are interested. Also, would you like for me to transfer management of S M Swindles memorial over to you?
Here is the link to the roster http://www.researchonline.net/gacw/rosters/16infd.htm

I was wondering if you are related to the Mallory family buried in Long-Mallory Cemetery. I'd like to know more about them, since they are buried just next to my property.

This is not my memorial. Winnette did the spouse thing and I cannot change it. Winnette has been suspended, so you will have to email Find A Grave to make the change.
|Jeff G.||Thank You.|
Thank you for the great photo you took of Lawrence E. Teel's headstone at Nancy Hart Memorial Park in Hartwell. It will be a nice addition to the family tree. I appreciate the time and effort it takes to do this for people.
