RE: McCaskey

I have not forgotten you. I haven't had much luck in finding anything on Brosnan and Levins. It is much easier researching the Union soldiers, sailors and marines from online pension records, 1890 soldiers census etc. I have my tail between my legs so to speak.

BTW, seeing your Findagrave name is Knighttemplar, if you are a freemason, my father was a very active freemason in England. He was a member of Socrates Lodge in Huntington and regularly visited St. Ivo Lodge in St. Ives. He even had a lifetime membership in Mother Kilwinning Lodge in Scotland. He made many freemason friends in England from his law enforcement profession associations. I myself never asked to join.

Best regards,

RE: McCaskey
Thank you Maurice,

For the Breedlove Smith info and Maher followup. Do you have additional info on William Crawford that will point me in the right direction?

My main interest is the USS Kearsarge and finding their grave locations. My virtual cemetery for them is open to public viewing from my Findagrave home page. I have found a majority of them. My main interest of Civil War graves search is the 69th Pennsylvania Infantry, 20th Maine Infantry and 6th Wisconsin Infantry. These regiments were the center, left and right of the Union line at Gettysburg. These virtual cemeteries are private from public viewing.

I only searched up CSS Alabama crew because of my interest in the Kearsarge. Never really got serious about them. Do you have other Alabama officer/ crew graves that you are looking for? My resources online are primarily US biased. Would enjoy seeing if I could turn something up for you. I'm always interested in helping out.

I contribute regularly to my friend Bob MacAvoy's NJ Civil War graves database. We have over 41,000 NJ CW graves. It was Bob who located the grave of Alabama's Miles J. Freeman. I live in New Jersey.

BTW, I lived in England for 5 years. Four years as a kid when my father was stationed at RAF Alconbury near Huntingdon 1969-1973. Also one year in Lowestoft while I attended a wooden boatbuilding school 1986-87.

RE: CSS Alabama McCaskey
Dear Mr. Maurice Rigby(?),

Thank you for your info for Benjamin P. MeCaskey/ McCaskey. What info do you have concerning the Gunner William Crawford being buried in the US? I need a lead to finding him perhaps.

BTW, I have a burial record for Michael Mahrer/ Mars in Cathedral Catholic cemetery in Savannah, GA taken from Also have you ever found the burial location for William / Winchester Breedlove Smith? He died Dec. 1914 in New Orleans. His mother Urilda Breedlove Smith died Dec. 1904 in New Orleans. I have their obits but neither state a cemetery. Urilda's husband Isaac Wightman Smith died 1850 in Italy. Her father James W. Breedlove died 1867 in New Orleans and was buried at the now defunct Girod St. cemetery. There is a chance that Urilda and her son Breedlove were buried there too, I'm guessing.

Best regards,
