Find A Grave Memorial# 8644150
I found this short obituary on this gentleman. Maybe you will add to the memorial. Thank you.


Article from The Daily State Journal, Alexandria, Virginia, Thursday, 5 January 1871 reads...

Colonel Walter Harrison, also ceased to live about the same time. He was a son of the late Phillip Harrison, Esq., an eminent chancery lawyer. Colonel Harrison was a gentleman of attainments and author of "Pickett and his Men." He was about 47 years of age at the time of his demise, which was caused by dropsy of the chest.

Darrell Landrum
Major Lindsay Shumaker
I found a grave for one of his children in Green Hill Cemetery in Danville and posted a memorial for him. From what I read on your bio for Major Shumaker, would it be possible that he is buried in Lynchburg with his wife? There are no other Shumaker grave markers where the young child is buried. One would think that a gentleman of his status would have a prominent stone.

Thinking out loud,
Darrell Landrum

Capt. John Chamberlayne ~ Hollywood Cemetery
Hello Ms. Hill. I made an interesting discovery with a CSA Captain Chamberlayne buried in Richmond City. Via a photo request, I was asked to get a good picture of his gravestone which was now covered in ivy, and in trimming down the ivy I found another stone in the growth, immediately beside him (you can see them together HERE) and she's the right age to be his mother. Do you have any idea if Martha B. Chamberlayne 1802-1883 could be Capt. John Chamberlayne 1838-1882's mom? If you think so, and if you'd like to link them, she is #92987131. Rich.

Walter Emmett Winn

My daughter-in-law's ancestor is Henry Jasper Winn, brother of Walter Emmett Winn. My question is regarding the name of the cemetery. Is it not St. Andrews Episcopal Church Cemetery in Praireville, Hale County, Alabama. It is through an online database that I found where both these men are buried and the name of the cemetery was the St. Andrews Church Cemetery. This cemetery is a historical site. I am thinking that the name you have for the cemetery and St. Andrews Episcopal Church Cemetery are the same cemetery.

Thanks for your help.

Maj Timothy H. Kellogg & James Keith Boswell
Hiya again: Would you be so kind as to consider transferring Maj Timothy H. Kellogg's bio page to me? I have more info to add and someone I know is a direct descendant of the Major's father-in-law with family details to add.

I'll be bringing another jar of jelly to "Preserves" James' grave the next few days.

Could you please provide sources for the information you offer on this man? Do you have any sense of why he might have been reinterred in Virginia? Thank you. Emily

I am Kay Marshall with Spring Hill Cemetery in Lynchburg, Va. I cannot locate this gentleman in our records and was hoping you could give me further assistance. I checked the Early lot and he is not there.

Thank You,

Lieut. Richard Chandler Wortham
On Find a Grave you have him listed as being born in 1941, since he was a Confederate soldier, I assume this is a typo and that he was actually born in 1841.

A. P. Hill Statue

Would you happen to know when Hill's statue will be returned to the monument? I need to go there for a photo, but don't want to go if the statue is not restored completely.

I enjoy your web site on Hill. It is very well done. Thanks.

If you need any Hill material from Gettysburg let me know. I would be more than happy to help. I live here and it would be easy for me to get whatever you might need. He is also my favorite officer.
