Joseph Valentine Morgan
Here's additional information & a correction for Joseph Valentine Morgan # 42655960 at Rockville Cemetery. He is the son of Joseph Francis Morgan # 20777288 & Ellen Leigh Edelen Morgan #20696106, both at St. Aloysius Gonzaga R. C. Cemetery, Leonardtown, St. Mary's County. It looks like the Jr. & Sr. were mixed in the citations at Rockville. His birthdate matches with the known children of this couple at Leonardtown. He descends from a number of major Southern Maryland Catholic families.

His grandmother may be at St. Aloysius as well & his grandfather at Old St. Joseph's, Morganza, St. Mary's County, but I'll not link them until I find out for sure.

Thank you !

Nicholas Nimrod Pumphrey
Hello Gary,
I attached some files from the National Archives on the military service of Nicholas Nimrod Pumphrey, M.D. to my family tree.You are most welcome to peruse them.
They show that he definitely died in Camp Anderson, which was about 6 miles north of Little Rock, Arkansas, on 16 April, 1863. Other records show that at one point, he was relieved of duty in 1862 due to illness. His death due to fever a year later is tragic, but very common under the circumstances. It is nearly certain that he would have been buried close by as the Union forces were arrayed not far from Little Rock that year, in their campaign to capture the city for the Union side. Even though he was an officer, the command would have no resources to ship his body back to his family.
In addition, Pumphrey's family, (his wife, Lydia Orr is our 2x Great Aunt) had relocated with their children during the War away from Independence, Missouri to Council Bluffs, Iowa.
An incidental note but interesting to our family history is that Nicholas Nimrod Pumphrey was the only person on that side of the family who fought with the C.S.A. His brothers in law (Orr family) all joined the Union Army.Even his cousin Lot Pumphrey fought for the Union side.
Another curious note is that his parents Nicholas and Cassandra were closely related....kind of like first cousins.
Anyway, you might want to update the Find A Grave record for Nicholas Nimrod Pumphrey. Record # 171565900.

Edward and Sarah Owen
Gary, I just sent you SACs on Edward and Sarah, but wanted to ensure you got this information. You have them in the wrong cemetery. They are buried in Riverside Cemetery, Bellevue, Eaton, Michigan, not Spaulding. Let me know when you correct this and I will add photos of their markers plus provide you with burial information. Thanks.

Memorial 43300971
Hello, thank you for the work that you do! I am friends with the grandson of Peggy Ann Wilt. He and the obit of her daughter cite her maiden name as King, not "Gray" Can you please change the name as written. We do not know how "Gray" became associated with her name so if you do, please share that information, preferably on the Memorial site.
