Dr. A.M.Fauntleroy was my great grandfather, and I am trying to preserve the heritage of my family -on both sides of the Civil War- for future generations.

Dear Bioengineer,

I have removed one of the headstone pictures for Dr. John M Wheeler. Let me know if this will suffice.

Looking forward to seeing the Dr's photo.

John C. Bates-Oddfellow Cemtery Gatesville, Texas
Hello Dr. Hambrecht,
I am working with the Coryell County, Texas, Historical Commission to obtain a Texas Historical Marker for Dr. John C. Bates, buried in the Gatesville Oddfellows Cemetery.

Thank you so much for the information posted on Dr. Bates' memorial.

We wondered if you have any more information such as where Dr. Bates attended medical school, his parents, or other information relating to his life before the Civil War.

Thank you for any additional information you can provide.

The memorial you sent the message for (122346267) does not match the memorial (121863575) you want edited. For edits to occur, simply submit the information thru the edits tab; no transfer is needed.

RE: Dr. James L. Kearse (#141730225)
Terry, I surveyed and photographed this cemetery about 2 years ago. If William Kearse, Sr. is buried in this cemetery his grave is unmarked. All of the graves that I found are listed. As you can tell from the photos that I have posted for James Kearse there are no other graves next to his. Sorry I couldn't help, Wimsang

Thank you so much for this bio and accompanying photos. I had not seen the Nov 1863 statement before. On a similar note, I just found him referenced in Kate Cumming's book (diary) and so began researching him again. He's my 2nd great uncle.

John Miller McAfee, M.D., and Joseph R. McAfee. M.D., etc.
Dr. John Miller McAfee, M.D. of Marietta, GA was a cousinship to the Dr. Jesse McAfee, of Dalton, GA, whom you have listed on your site; both gentlemen lived and died in GA. Dr. John Miller McAfee (b. Rutherfordton NC) was a Brig.Gen. in the GA Militia; he was designated as a surgeon in the GA Militia records; he died shortly after the Civil War and is buried in Marietta, GA. Cause of this premature death: T.B.

Exactly where Dr. John Miller McAfee medically trained is not fully understood; but it is noted that during his latter educational years, a European physician (who had been on staff of Napoleon) arrived to NC and resided in the household of NC Honorable Robert McAfee, the father of Dr. John Miller McAfee. Research shows that the European physician was involved with training certain medical students and whether he was associated with a NC medical university is not known at this writing.

The European physician is reputed to have been an extremely skillful surgeon and would likely imparted such skill to students. Recently, a GA grave was legally opened which was that of a Union soldier, (a McAfee cousinship), and there, along with the remains, was an amputated arm; it had been removed with a notable skill. The first thought (yet, unproven) was that the removal of the arm was likely the work of Dr. John Miller McAfee who had lived nearby where the Union soldier had been shot by a Confederate sniper high up in a tree, The Union soldier McAfee cousin lingered for three days. This was near the K-Mountain; but, it was not the Battle of McAfee Crossroads. Note; At the Battle of McAfee's Crossroads (plantation of Dr. John Miller McAfee's youngest brother, Robert McAfee), the house was taken and used by the Union General Garrard, and it became a field hospital. Today, there are still bloodstains on the old flooring of the wounded and dying soldiers from the Battle of McAfees' Crossroads.

Additionally, a Dr. Joseph R. McAfee of Grenada, MS was another at-large family cousinship; as was W.W. McAfee, M.D. of the Atlanta GA area. All obits for these McAfee physicians are on; however, little detail re their medical training is noted in the obits. I think that you will find that most, if not all, of these physicians lived during the Civil War Era and may be likely candidates for your efforts re noting Civil War physicians.

Schedule of Property
I'm interested in the source of the Schedule of Property that you posted for Dr. DeSaussure. Can you tell me what Record Group those records are in at the National Archives?
