Interesting Quote
Hi Hutch,
In a Civil War book I'm reading ("What This Cruel War Was Over" by Chandra Manning), I found a great quote on p.60-61 that I wanted to add to the soldier's bio on your virtual cemeteries, but I can't find his unit. You might not have them. Here's a link to the AL Archives page on him, Thomas Warrick:
Here's his quote from a letter to his wife:
"I have heard a heap of talk about the Country But I have Seed as much of it as I wount to see if I was Jest free I would com Back to old Coosa in a hery....wountin Give old Coosa for no Country."
Having ridden through Coosa County in the past few days, it is just as beautiful now as ever, and probably not much changed in most places since Thomas Warrick wrote these words.
Thanks if you can find a way to use this, and if not, that's fine.
Also thank you again for the tremendous job that you've done making all of these virtual cemeteries for all of these brave soldiers. I know that it has taken an unflagging commitment on your part to render this service on behalf of all of these soldiers so they will not be forgotten, and will be remembered with their comrades. I know how tedious and time consuming this can be! THANK YOU. THANK YOU.

You Personal Bio.
Dear Hutch,

I contacted FHTerry who "maintains" this grave but have not heard from him; therefore, I am writing to you.

Why is your personal bio on # 15553619 my great-grandfather Dr. William P. Hooper's bio space?

When this grave sheet is opened, under the Birth & Death info is: "Company C 3rd North Carolina Calvary CSA." (BIO BY HUTCH).

Why is your name next to Dr. Hooper's CSA record?

When (HUTCH) is opened...your bio, virtual
cemetery lists, and accomplishments at find-a-grave take up the entire page. Can you understand how shocked I am see "your stuff" here?

Because there is nothing on this page, did you assume Dr. Hooper had no living family, so you can just write what you want here?

Yes, you write about Alabama veterans here and the need to respect and support them, and that is a noble cause. No,I am not complaining about your topic - veterans. I am a military brat, Daddy fought in WWII and Korea. I love all veterans.

Final question: who gave you permission and approval to use this grave page?

I look forward to resolving this problem, and thank you for your service as a policeman and caretaker for find-a-grave.

RE: Adding to your Virtual Cemetery
Thank so much, Hutch. I am so grateful for all of the work that you've done to honor the brave men who sacrificed their all for their homeland, and thank you for including my GG Grandfather.

Adding to your Virtual Cemetery
Hi Hutch,

Hoping you'll add my GG Grandfather to your virtual cemetery of 18th AL Infantry, Co D. James M. Fuller , Memorial # 167584287. I watched a documentary on the battle of Shiloh last night and am reminded anew of all that the brave souls who fought in the Civil War sacrificed and suffered, and how much they deserve to be honored and remembered.

Thanks for all of the work that you have done!

Linda Parrish
Civil War soldier
Dear Sir, I have been searching for my Great Grandfather David Samuel Wingard. He served in the 5th Infantry Company H and was mustered in at Montgomery, Al. in 1861. I believe that his name was given as DS Wingheard/Wingherd/Wingood when he enlisted or at his death. I think his unit was merged with Company I at a later date but am not positive.
He died on Jan. 17, 1863 in Virginia and I believe he is buried in Hollywood Cemetery in a unmarked grave. He died from pneumonia in the Wayside Receiving Hospital in Va.
He was born in Coosa Co. Al. in 1831 and was married to Nancy Lambert Wingard. He had two sons when he enlisted my grandfather Irvin Wingard born 1854 and David Samuel Wingard Jr. born the same year he left for the war in 1861.
I know many years went by before my grandfather ever found out how he died and where he died. I believe one of my uncles who lived in Michigan went to DC and looked at the record on him.
I would like to make a memorial for him in Hollywood Cem. but have no exact place of his burial although I believe it is there in Hollywood Cem.
Is there anyway a memorial can be created for him so his family can be linked to him. I don't want to go against any rules but it would be wonderful if he could be united with his family..
Can you give me any more info on him and if he is in Hollywood Cemetery and if a memorial can be created for him.
Thank you for your time.

Possible Transfer of Find A Grave Memorial# 153167838
Hi Hutch,

Find A Grave Memorial# 153167838

Would you be interested in transferring SGT Wesley Bradford to me?

We've previously discussed changes to his entry.

Thanks in advance,

Peggy Sanders
Cpl Willougby Wesley Gibson
Hello! I'm a descendant of Willoughby Wesley Gibson whose Find A grave memorial you manage. The family legally renamed the Bozone Cemetery to the Gibson Cemetery several years back. I have added the Gibson cemetery and added memorials for Willoughby, his baby daughter and the only other person buried there (Judith Delphne Gibson Patrick). I did this not realizing there was already a memorial for Willoughby Wesley Gibson.

I'm not sure how to correct this duplication. Maybe having you delete the memorial you have would be the answer since the cemetery is now renamed.

And I am willing to administer the Gibson Cemetery since it is one for our family. It is located behind our Great-Grandfather's home site in Choctaw County, AL.

Thanks so much,

Peggy sanders

Wesley F. MOORE: Co. F, 12th Alabama Infantry
I apologize. I have been unable to locate his gravesite over the 25 years I have searched. I know it is Texas. I know he died working the RR in Texas in the late 1870's of heat exhaustion. When I find it I will be happy to add his name. AND THANKS for adding Micajah.
