Hi!! I am trying to help a cousin locate her gggrandfather who died at the battle of Chickamauga on Sept 19, 1863. Do you know if those who perished over those 3 days are all buried together? His name was James Abram Moore and he was from Suwanee, Georgia. She has been looking for a long time, we just discovered our connection on ancestry. I am more into find a grave now so I thought I would find someone from Georgia who may know the history. Thanks so much, Connie Clark (with some Georgia ancestors as well :)

You are very kind and eloquent. Your sincerity is appreciated. I saw where you looked at Levi Miller, another entry I made. Please look at Jefferson Shields in that same cemetery. He looks very much like Dick Poplar.
Thanks! - George

|Eric Brantley||RE: Your Work|
Thanks so much Cindy. I try to add as many as I can. I rolled my truck in the snow storm we had at the end of January so I have mostly been trying to find something else since. I have the rental until this Friday so hope I find something soon. Would rather be working on my findagrave stuff. HA!

Thank you Dixie Home Georgia, and I would like to say the same to you.
It is reassuring to find, with today's "political correctness," some who think the individuals who fought for the Confederacy were not villians, but God-fearing people who deserve our utmost respect.

Thank you for the kind words. I really enjoy finding my Confederate kinfolk and creating any kind of memorial I can to honor them and their sacrifices. You keep up the good work too.
In Their Memory,

Thank you for being so kind, I do have an obsession for the veterans, all of them. All veterans sacrificed so much for us, remembering them is the least we can do. I'm still finding CSA soldiers in Randolph County Ga. that have no marker, sad. Thanks again.

It was my please to add the picture of Thomas Brooks Willingham. No doubt the Willinghams were plentiful and a great asset to Texas.

Thank you for the kind words. If ever I may need assistance, I'm sure I can count on you. Have a great day! :)

Hey Cindy, I can't thank you enough for the kind words. Folks, like you, help make it all worthwhile. You have so much history in your family. I can only imagine the pride you feel. We all have to try and keep the memory of these brave men from fading. It's truly the very least we can do in exchange for what they did.

|Ron Walker||Americus E. Wallker|
Thank you for posting the biographical info on A.E. Walker, who was my great grandfather's (George W. Walker) brother. Most of our family lives in Georgia, and I was surprised that A.E. Walker moved to Mississippi. I have been researching info about Elisha's 9 children and was wondering where you found your info about A.E.W.'s genealogy. G.W. Walker was a Civil War veteran who had 13 children and died in 1917. Any help you can provide will be appreciated

|Keith Giddeon||RE: William Powell|
The Powell Cemetery is surrounded by an iron fence and can only hold about 5-6 burials. To date, I am only sure of W.N. Powell's burial. I know that the cemetery is full, based upon my grandfather's stories. He knew who was there and in which order. However, there are no markers.
I believe W.N's second wife, Annie, may have been buried there, but haven't been able to find her obituary yet.
Feel free to create the Powell Cemetery, and to use any of my photos.
At Google Maps https://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&tab=wl
Type this in the search bar and you'll find the exact location of the cemetery:

|Jean Ferguson||Alban Willingham,my gr-gr grandfather|
WHAT AN AMAZING amount of work you have done! Thank you.
In my Willingham research, I have hit a brick wall four generations removed from my generation.
Gr-gr grandfather Alban Willingham(b.1835,d.1878) married Eliz. Pauline Sewell(b.1842, d. 1928), and they were buried in Lime Branch Cemetery, Cedartown...I have not been able to find Alban's father's name, nor his wife's name.............NOR any information pertaining to either of them.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
