RE: Granville B McDonald
The caption contains the link to the page.

But here are 950 photos if Civil War veterans from Illinois, (at 200 per page) with a photo for each:

Some of those soldiers are from the 30th.

I just did a "Ctrl F" search of the first 2 pages (400 men shown, including a few men with more than 1 photo) for 30, and there were a2 hits on the first page and about 9 hits on the second, not counting hits for 130.

I am now in the process of going through the list as it is now (more will be added later) and searching those names to see if they have Find A Grave profiles. (I am going in alphabetical order by their first names). I am starting the H's now.

When I find a match, I copy, adjust, fix up (to a point) and add the photo and link to the original on the Find A Grave memorial, although in some cases somebody else beat me to it :)

Granville B McDonald
Hi Matthew,

I saw that you previously added a photo of Granville to his memorial. So I want to let you know that I added another photo, in case you have a connection to Granville.

RE: Again
I am so sorry. I am having so much trouble with my computer that I can't seem to work for more than ten minutes at a time.

As a matter of fact, I had to restart my computer half way through this message.

Anyway, I will get to it. Sorry again.

RE: Ogden Greenough
You are entirely welcome. I'm glad I had the opportunity to help. While I was there, I also got photo's of the other Greenbough headstones. I hope to get them on today, if you have any use for them. If not, someday, someone probably will.
