Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been in and out of genealogy for many years now. I am forever grateful to the incredibly hard work of those before me. I've been blessed with many photos, accounts and works of others. Now my job is to connect the dots. :)

My goal on is to memorialize those not already memorialized; ie, if I visit a cemetery and they have no record, I will create one. I especially focus on veterans and children with no memorials. For my own family, I wish to make their memorials as complete as possible with full dates, photos and family links anytime possible.

I am always open to corrections, extra information, etc! I am more than happy to add information to memorials.

If the memorial is your family member, please suggest a transfer via the Suggest a Correction tab. If they are of no relation to me, I'm happy to transfer, especially if you have work you'd like to do with the memorial. I am not one of those "only guidelines" types.

You may also use my photos as you see fit. You can include a credit for them, but it isn't necessary. I do attempt to take the clearest photos that I can, and do spend time photoshopping to make them as legible as possible.

I am a D.A.R. daughter and am working on joining the Mayflower Society.

Be well and God Bless.

Abigail Alden Mowry
When I took the photo of Abigail, I noted that the death date is 1851. I'm wondering if it was just incorrect on the stone, as you have 1861. Gail

William Henry Smith
# 138483772. You placed a photo of his family on the memorial so I take it you know a bit about this family. I also take it you are probably closer to his wife than him. I am thinking that he is probably the son of Ferdinand (C. F.) Smith and Martha A Level Smith. Evidence is showing me that Ferdinand Smith is buried in Dayton Twp, Phillips County, Kansas. Do you know anything about the cemeteries located in Dayton Twp.? Evidence is also showing me that Ferdinand's wife moved to Lincoln County , Oregon with sons' John H. Smith and Samuel Smith. She probably died in Oregon. Do you know anything about the family of Ferdinand and Martha A. Smith?

I think I got them all but if you locate others I have, just let me know. P. S. I went all through grade and high school with Lois, wife of Gary Exline, here in town. I used to see them at alumni events but haven't seen them for a while.

John Hemphill

I think I sent you some confusing information about John Hemphill. I think he did died in Memphis. However, prior to being sent to the hospital in Memphis he entered the convalescent camp in Helena, Arkansas. Helena is about 65 miles south of Memphis (a little shorter by boat). I looked at the muster report you sent and found a similar muster report on 3Fold for John Hemphill going to the convalescent camp. I just wanted to clear that up.

My wife is a very proud member of the DAR, interestingly enough her third Great Grandfather Comfort Walker enlisted in Company D of the 11th Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry Regiment when the Civil War broke out. He died of sickness on November 12, 1862 near Camp Patterson, Missouri.

Semper Fi,

John Hemphill
Here is some information I found.

John Vance Hemphill was a Private in Company D, 33rd Missouri Volunteer Infantry Regiment. He enlisted on 13 August 1862 in Louisiana, Missouri for a period of three years. Private Hemphill died in hospital at Memphis, Tennessee on 25 March 1863. It appears he was left in a convalescent camp on 24 February 1863 at Helena, Arkansas.

Semper Fi,

John Hemphill

There is no marker for John Hemphill in the Memphis National Cemetery. If he is buried there he has a headstone marked "Unknown U. S. Soldier". If you would like I can put a photo of one of those markers on his memorial. Please let me know.

Semper Fi,
Bruce Linz
