David Hope in the Marietta National Cemetery
Hello again Mrs. Janet,

I wanted to ask if you could turn over management of my 5th great uncle's memorial to me?

Pvt. Gabriel David Lawson Hope (1842-1864)

I would like to put his life story about his Civil War experience on here. I have notes about what he experienced in battle and his time while he was a POW during the War.

Thank You!

Wow, Thanks Janet

No problem about the post length.

Is the source for the exact date, church and minister the Pension File?

All I had to go on was a reference from a 1924 book by a family member that the third son died at "The Battle of Chatanooga (sic)" It confused me for a while as the first son was named Thomas George, but after I found his burial record in England with the 2nd son it started to come together. The first "Thomas George" died in 1823 and there was another "Thomas George" baptized at Manchester in April 1825.

The only reference to a middle initial for this "Thomas" was "Thomas G." on his pension index card on Ancestry. Does the pension record give his middle name or Initial?

His occupation on enlistment was "Ship Carpenter" and on the 1855 New York Census at Buffalo "Caulker" and the 1860 US Census at Peru, LaSalle Co., IL "Caulker" as well.

This is coming together nicely as a younger sister married a "Alexander Barbeau" a Ship Carpenter at Oswego.

Sorry to ramble. I'm off on a road trip to Kingston tomorrow to photograph their father's monument.

Thanks Janet.

Every little bit helps.

As she was born in Erie Co. and they were residing in Buffalo in 1855 It was likely they married there but it's good to get the confirmation.

Now if I can only find a marriage record and hope it has his parent's names or his exact place of birth.

Thank you for all your work on this memorial. Are you a family relation to the Emmick's? Thomas was my 3rd Great Uncle.

Thomas G. Burrows (1824-1863) Chatanooga National Cemetery
Hello Janet,

I noticed you added a note on a flower to Pvt. Thomas G. Burrows (1824-1863) recording that he left a widow Ellen and sons William Henry and Franklin per his pension records.

Do you have a copy of said Pension records or could you point me to where I may locate those? I have read that fold 3 is in the process of digitizing them but I understand the progress is quite slow.

I believe I know who his parents are but its a bit of a circumstantial case at this point and I require more evidence.

RE: Find A Grave Memorial# 65419013
Thank you, Janet, for the editing of John's memorial. Yes, I went ahead and suggested an edit for you to the connection to parents George and America Ott Bruner, as there is no memorial for her name under her second marriage to Ichabod Turley. After much research, the site of her actual grave has been under question for years. Her second husband, Ichabod, was more than likely buried on his own farm with his first wife after his death, but I have been unable to find any documentation. Several family members believe America was buried on the farmland near her first husband, George Bruner, or at Hillcrest Cemetery, when she later owned property in Floyd County. If in either location, it is an unmarked grave. I have not asked the creator of her memorial to make any changes to her last name, as it might confuse other researchers, and there is no memorial to connect Ichabod Turley as a husband. As John's mother, she was, of course, America Ott Bruner.

Best wishes,

Have been unable to pull up your answer to my question.

I understand that they were 2 different men. I know that things get confusing when dealing with mistakes on headstones and records of cemeteries. I have to deal with this with 2 of my older sisters that died as infants.

Waiting to read your reply.

I appreciate the reply! I wish there were more records, but then again we're lucky so many records have been preserved, I guess I shouldn't complain! I'm hoping to visit Augusta and Marietta someday!
