Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Jessie Tipton. I am a graduate of East-Tennessee State University. Until recently (summer 2013) I have been working at the East Tennessee Historical Society where I helped collect and present information for the "Civil War Tombstone Project." The project is still ongoing, and the East Tennessee Historical Society may be able to help with additional entries and other information. Thank you, all contributors! I wish I could have stayed at ETHS, as this project, and that place, were such a good match for me. However, as ETHS is non-profit, I had to find a paying job. I apologize to anyone who has been trying to contact me. I am now working at a law firm where I help look up information for estate law. I would love to get back to this project, even in a new and different way on my own, if I can get through my first year of this new job with success. Thank you, and good luck, my find-a-grave companions!

Thank you for entering Henderson Lady into the Civil War (Union) Soldiers Database at the East Tennessee Historical Society. Do they have any family information on him, such as parents, wives & children? Any information would be greatly appreciated.

James McCarty and CiviL War Data
I see you have posted a comment on the memorial for James in the Flat Hollow Cemetery. He is not interred there. Please see the LeMarr Cemetery in Claiborne County where James McCarty 118949567 and wife 118949748 are interred. I believe you will want your information posted on the correct memorial. I notified the creator of the memorial in Flat Hollow several weeks ago. Changes just take time.

Benjamin L. Marshall 1839-1896
Hi Jessie,

re: Benjamin L. Marshall 1839-1896
(Union Army during the Civil War, 1st Regiment, Tennessee Cavalry, Company DKL/Company L.)

Thank you for adding my 3x Great Grandfather into the Union soldier project at the Historical
Society. It's very much appreciated.

The name 'Marshall' is correctly spelled as shown on the memorial stone, with two letter "L"s and not one.

Would you be kind enough to correct the error in spelling in your data if it's been entered with only one "L"?

If you need documentation (besides the tombstone) to verify the spelling, I'd be more than happy to provide it.

Kindest regards,
