RE: Camp Nelson
Thanks a million, Keith for your offer. When we were there we took quite a few pictures. If you should find some unusual shots to take I would be happy with them. Thanks and Gos bless, Mary Braneff

RE: Camp Nelson
Thanks for the offer, I took some pictures when I was there. The museum is on a downtown street. We had 2 excellent guides. They were both retired school teachers. He called himself the Convertible Cowboy and had taught History 25 years and had explored all the old military sites and roads plus he had a lot of artifacts that he had found in his exploring. The lady was a retired 4th. grade teacher. She works at the museum. Any pictures will be appreciated, thanks Mary Braneff.

RE: Camp Nelson
The museum which is small and not very informative is in downtown Cabot. A lady named Linda Acrey was our guide and a former teacher by the name of R.D. Keever ( The Convertible Cowboy). I think I remember the names correctly. Sorry about taking so long to reply. Mary Braneff.

John Harmon Carter
Keith, I am so sorry to be so long getting back to you. Some time back , a year or two my husband and I took a trip to Arkansas. We went to the museum in Cabot and met with Linda Acrey and R.D. Keever. Linda works as a volunteer at the city museum where my great grandfather John Harmon Carter's picture and a copy of my great grandfather John Harmon Carter's letter dated Dec. 1862 is located. I mailed them to Linda several years ago. R.D. Keever was a history teacher for 25 years and has searched all the woods around Cabot and found trails the soldiers traveled and a lot of artifacts from the war. He took my husband, myself and Linda to the site of Camp Nelson, the original burying grounds and Camp Nelson Cemetery. We also traveled a lot of the old military roads made by the soldiers. It was a thrilling trip and experience to stand in the locale where my ancestor wrote that letter on a cold,snowy day in Dec. 1862 ! Thanks for your help. Mary Braneff

Alta M. Shirley
Keith, Thanks for looking for her headstone. All I have is military record from that includes her name, Alta M. Shirley and home of record, Arkansas. The US Army Women's Museum at Fort Lee reported her death and placed her name on a Bronze Plaque in their Memory Garden. I have checked for an obit on and nationwide grave locator to see if she had a veterans headstone, also with no luck. My fear is that if she had no family, she may be in any unmarked grave. Will contact the creater of her memorial to see if she can help me.

I cannot find the words to thank you for doing this and how it means even more that Bill's headstone is now on his memorial in time for this Veteran's Day. God bless you today and always.

Robert Williford
Hi, I contacted a relative of Robert Williford here in the Cortez, COLO area. His name is Wayne Williford and he would like to talk with you. His phone is 970-565-8807. He said he was about 8yrs old when Robert was lost on the submarine. I tried sending messages to the email address but they were returned to me. Jim Davenport

John Harmon Carter Letter
Keith, I think I recall that you asked me what museum that my great grandfather's Civil War letter was in. It and a picture of John Harmon Carter is at a small Historical Museum called Lonoke County Historical Museum in Lonoke, Arkansas. Linda, who volunteers there knows about it as I met her when I visited Camp Nelson Cemetery. Thanks again, Mary Braneff

Re: Lenora Kelley
Thank you so much for your time and message regarding your search for Lenora Kelley's gravesite in the Oak Bowery Cemetery. As you mentioned it is probably one of the nearby unmarked graves near William's grave. Many thanks!
