He is my 2nd great-grandfather on my mom's side. Where did you obtain the photo and how are you related? Thanks for uploading it! Always nice to match a face to a name.

Olive Lorene Gaither Stone
Thanks so much for the photo. I was able to locate her grave by photo background. I cleaned the stone today and will upload the picture later. It's very clear now. She would have been my aunt. My mother was Zelda Lois Gaither. Mom was 11 when Olive died. Is Olive in your family tree?
The last living brother just died, Lee Gaither.

Pvt. Isaac Ballinger
Thank you. I didn't have any info on him. I have the soldier who was executed Pvt. Joseph H. Adams, Co. K, 12th Va. Infantry. I did find that he was buried in Sec. D but not the row or grave number. If you find info on him why he was executed please let me know and any info on where he's buried. Thanks again, Mike.

RE: J D Brooks, Oakwood Cemetery
No I'm not the man from Georgia. I live 10 miles from Oakwood. I have Sgt. Thomas Nealy Baines great uncle of President Lyndon Baines Johnson # 86080177. Pvt. James R. Phillips boy soldier 11 years old # 9740576. Scott has his memorial. People put names in Find A Grave never do research on the person so sad. Some people think this is a game on how many people I can put in with out the historic background of a person. Just to say look how many people I have. I know there was 40 some North Carolina soldiers buried in Oakwood in the late 1870's I got the news article but have to look it up. I have looked up over 75% of the names now. I'm working on the Smith's right now. There is about five 15 year olds buried there and around ten 16 year olds. The oldest is around 64 years old. There are two civilians buried there. I have many more stories to many to mention. I did fix Jordan Brooks memorial with more information about him. A bus tour is a great idea. I will look and see what else I can find for you. I think they will never know how many soldiers are buried there and who they are. Out of all the soldiers I looked up only one said buried at Oakwood Cemetery. I have a couple I found in newspaper articles who are not on the list. I hope to finish this part of my research by the end of the summer. Then I'll start on the ones I couldn't find at the NPS and Va. Library.

Hi Lisa, I was recently walking the grounds at Spring Hill cemetery and came upon the marker for both of the children. I posted a picture on both of the memorials you have for them.

B.J. Waters
RE: Seven Pines Nat'l Cemetery
Hi Lisa, and thank you for correspondence. Yes, I am related to Alvin Waters, he was my great-great granduncle, my great-great grandfather's brother (Edwin Waters) who also fought in Virginia in the Civil War. The information on Alvin's Find A Grave memorial is all that I know about him. My father never talked about family history, and all that I know about his side of family I had to find out on my own. You have definitely spiked my interest, though, and I will order a copy of Alvin's military record to see if there is anything you can use. I certainly wish I had photos! Unfortunately, I don't have any photos of him or his brother.

I'll let you know when I receive the records.

Best Regards,

RE: Alamance Church records
Hello Lisa,
Was your Aunt ever able to have a chance to look at the books at the Alamance Church to see if John Hobbs died in 1849 instead of 1839 as carved on his headstone?
Thanks so much for whatever information you can provide.

Hi Lisa,
Thank you "so very much," for this photo of Elizabeth. I do know she & Wm. Wiley Sr. lived
on next farm from "my John Wiley Sr. & wife Sarah. I believe my John may have been one of their children. I haven't been able to prove that only dealings of property between Wm & John.
I really appreciate all your hard work and efforts in getting this photo for me.
God Bless and again thank you,

RE: Alamance Church records
Hi Lisa,
Thanks so much for your reply about John Hobbs and the Alamance Church records. If the fire was before 1849, then we may be in luck! It would be wonderful if your aunt could check the records for his actual death and burial dates. I believe John Hobbs actually died in August of 1849 as his widow, Catherine (Caty) Coble, filed papers on his estate about 7 August 1849. He died intestate.

If your aunt would need any more information, please let me know.

Best regards,

Grave of Moses Job

Thank you so much for the picture of the grave of Moses Job. I live in Erie, PA and am working on a second volume of grave locations for veterans of the War of 1812. I wanted to include Moses in this book, but I needed a picture of his grave. I'll cite you as the source. Thanks again.

Transferring memorials
You can transfer to me, but I would rather you learn how to link, as it is the feature which makes Find A Grave the very best cemetery site. You can link each person to their spouse(s) or parent(s) by pressing "edit" next to "family links" and typing the 7 or 8 digit memorial number of the family member in the appropriate box and then pressing "save changes". If you know how to "copy and paste" the memorial numbers you won't have to write them down. Didn't mean to harrass you since your computer was down, but I have to document in order to have a member declared "inactive" if they have lost interest or died. If you can't figure it out, you can transfer to me (#46983562) and then I can transfer back if you like. Debra
