11th Texas Infantry
I have a few more grave memorials to add to your listing of 11th Texas Infantry C.S.A. veterans.
These were all in Company E and were from Panola County.First two were brothers and buried at Woodside Cemetery, Grand Saline Van Zandt Co.
Isaac Morris & Elisha Morris
Their father John Morris also served in Company E
enlisted at the age of 45, eventually discharged because of his age. He is buried in an unmarked grave in the old Bethel Cemetery in Panola County. This Cemetery straddles the property line of John Morris and his father-in-law Rev. Isaac Reed.

For what it's worth, I went to the church office this morning to get plot location & any other info on this grave. His name is recorded as Seville Landry. He died/buried 26 June 1911 at 91 yrs. Section A, row 11, lot 20. No others recorded as being buried in there with him. Gustave Landry is the vault owners name & was purchased June 26, 1911. Debbie

Thanks for the 'heads-up' about the duplicate Findagrave entry of Harrison T. Rooks. I have removed the duplicate. P. S. Your entry was much more informative than mine anyway!..Lest We Forget....

William Herndon
Find A Grave Memorial# 153125770

I have no connection to Mr. Herndon and his family and do not know where they might have been buried previously. I entered this information from a transcription of this cemetery done in the late 1990s. I wondered at that time about the dates, knowing that they predate the organization of this cemetery. Sorry I can't be of any help to you.

contribution of yours
I'm trying to do some family research and find you the contributor for WL Ferguson at findagrave. Vivian LA cemetery. I believe this man to be my great grandfather. However the William Lloyd (a calculated relationship) doesn't match any other information I have.
Wondering what you know about that if anything. Thanks for any help. I get stumped on my searches for sure.

Confederate Monument
Re: Confederate Memorial Monument located at Caddo Parish Courthouse in Shreveport, LA.

Caddo Parish Commission is actively involved in public meetings to hear feedback from the community for the removal of monument.

In 2014 it was added to the National Historical Register of Historic Places.

I have already photographed the same which is huge artistic treasure.

Informing and listening for feedback via email,

Lest we forget!

A Collins Thank You
Several years ago, you went to Grove Hill Cemetery in De Soto Parish LA to take pictures of MW Collins (my CSA ancestor) and his family. I was so grateful. And I visit nowadays. Please do a Cemetery Lookup and see what the folks involved with the Grove Hill Cemetery erected for those who served in battle and lie at rest now. Lest We Forget...Marguerite Collins

I'm a great grandson of subject who is in Shreveport's Greenwood Cemetery. You, apparently, posted a photo of John. Since I've never seen a photo of John, I'm interested in the source.

Laura Sullivan
Memorial #15084116
This memorial is not William R Duncle. This is his 1st wife the sister to his 2nd wife who is my great grandmother. He & her sister are buried at Old PineHill Cemetery in Sicily Island, LA. My mother's cousin went to this cemetery when she was going to college and the only thing left of her wooden marker had "Wife of William R Duncle". She told me that cameras were far and few between back then so she didn't have one to take a picture. Would you please correct this. The dates are correct just not the name. Her name was Martha Ann Turner Duncle. I would love to be able to link William Rufus to both his wives and Martha's daughter to her. Thank you, Sincerely, Laura Jane Russell Sullivan

Penny Nelson Randolph
Find A Grave Memorial# 13056431
You created this memorial made out to an Abner Nelson and a Ms. Tracy placed a photo showing a stone with the letter A R N. I am wondering if the stone she found did not belong to someone else. The reason I am saying this is that I am looking for the grave site of Amos R. Nelson who was married to Sarah A S Willett Nelson (Find A Grave Memorial# 19859172) who is buried in the same cemetery. Can you tell me anything about your Abner Nelson?

Thank you

Charles H. Caldwell#1045105
I was wondering if you had any information about his family. I may be a descendent or long-lost cousin. My mother's maiden name was Caldwell. I'm having a hard time tracing the family. I thought maybe any information you had could help me rule in/out Charles.

Thank you for your time.

RE: M.B. Valentine #15421409
Thank you for the good information. I have learned what was thought to be M.B. Valentine on Newt Knights deserters roster was thought to be William Patrick Valentine. The information you shared shows he didn't permanently desert and later was captured and became a P.O.W. I do appreciate your response to my request.

RE: M.B. Valentine #15421409
Is that the same Unit Newt Knight fought at Corinth, MS.? His story was recently told in the Hollywood movie "Free State of Jones". M.B. Valentine is on the roster of Newt Knight's deserters from the Confederacy gang.

Any idea who the 3rd wife was that Joseph Jones married after 1900 when his 2nd wife, Frances Railey died? His 1st wife was Sarah Ann Heard. Mary Francis Jones who m. John Tatum Blunt 1899 DeSoto Parish was his daughter from 1st wife. Oma Jones born 1900 was the daughter from the 2nd wife, Frances.....Just wondering who the 3rd wife was that you mention.....

Find a Grave photos
I am writing a two-volume book on the 8th Indiana. I would like to include photos of the soldiers and their headstones with their biographies. I would like to use some of your photos in the book and will give you credit in the caption for each photo. If you are interested, I can let you know when the book is published. The photo I need is the grave of Nelson Barnes (# 19941092). My research shows that he served in the 8th Indiana Infantry 3 month regiment and the 5th Indiana Cavalry. His pension record shows he died January 14, 1914 in Palestine, Texas. His obituary (The Houston Post, January 17, 1914)does not list his military service. You list him as a Confederate soldier; do you have records to verify this service?

Thanks David...I still count myself as a "rookie" when it comes to how everything works. Should have noticed the name on pictures!! Live and learn something everyday. Sorry for the message.

Memorial# 20060899
Just asking...why are there 3 pictures of the same grave stone for Marcus Mallard on his Find A Grave memorial? Found it interesting and wondered if there is a reason for it.

Always finding something I don't understand on the web site and don't mean any disrespect for a Confederate soldier (have many, many as ancestors).
