You commented on the Findagrave page for the above mentioned person about his rank in the Civil War. By chance would you happen to have any further info regarding him? I am trying to find a picture of him especially. Please let me know if you have anything further.
|Garret Kremer-Wright||James Posey Woodside # 7143660|
I read that you have my ancestor listed as having attended the Confederate reunion in Little Rock, do you have a document stating that? I do know, but don't have documentation, that he was at the Springfield, MO reunion in 1898 (I think). I do have him listed as being a Manager of the Confederate Veterans Home in Higginsville towards the end of his life. Thanks!

I am the great granddaughter of James T. Butler through his son Homer Butler then his son George who is my father. I wonder if you have any information on his murder. If so you can email me. Thanks so much for maintaining these records for those of us that trace our roots to the Ozarks. Vanessa Callahan.

Do you have the original newspaper article dated 2012. I cannot get the entire article and would appreciate a copy.
Thank you for posting the information to Thomas Shelton's site.

Hello. My name is Kelly Kirkpatrick and Janetta "Nettie" Wiggs Winn is my 3rd Great Grandma. I saw that you had added a photo on her page showing 4 individuals. Can you let me know who the 4 people are?
|Gregory Laughlin||Feeder Pig Capitol of the World|
I found your virtual cemetery entry for the Feeder Pig Capitol of the World on Find-a-Grave. My father, Robert Laughlin, and I had a feeder pig partnership back in the 1970s (it was really his business, but he gave me a share). Our farm was on Black River, about five miles north of Poplar Bluff. We sold pigs through the MFA Tele-Auction, first at a barn in Ellington, MO and then at a barn near Doniphan, MO. Unfortunately, my father contracted cancer in 1979 and died in 1980, ending our feeder pig business. He made a good living from feeder pigs during the last decade of his life, plus raised Black Angus cattle and row crops.
Thanks for creating the virtual cemetery.
|Sandy Vandertol||Misuse of photo area # 21629809|
Find a Grave, first and foremost a grave indexing database, reserves the photo section for images of the person's grave and a portrait of that person if available. That is the ideal usage of the photo section. Newspaper style article/obituary scans should not be posted, as indicated in the FAQs (although many people feel compelled to do so). Always use the bio area to transcribe any news article or obit item. They are far more suitable for Ancestry.com listings. A great deal of our "complaint" email has to do with members upset that another member has added a scanned obit (or even death certificate) to memorials that they maintain. Others complain that the scanned images take photo slots away that could be used for grave and portrait photos. The Administration team is instructed to remove these items when notified and also when they run across them.

I don't have books left from the first printing. But please check with me again. I make get back to Company C again. Cheri
|Garrett Gabel||RE: Pvt. Thomas Benton Caldwell|
Thanks for the message pertaining to the Caldwell article, interesting material. On another note, do you know anything at all about the burial whereabouts of the two Federal soldiers that were killed by Bushwhacker Jim Jamison that's related in the Monks book by Lou Wehmer and John Bradbury? The book states "about one mile west of Thomasville." My research partner Michael D. Harris and I have done a lot of research on Jamison, Bill Wilson, Anthony Wright, Dick Kitchen, One-Arm Brown, Duke Sumner, and many others, they all hailed from our neck of the woods in southern Phelps co. We plan to publish a book about these men as well as many others in the near future. Michael has a lot of info. on the "Texas and Mo. in the Civil War" message boards online. We went to Texas about a month ago following the footsteps of Jamison and Wilson in their post-war years, Wilson of course was murdered in Grayson Co. in 1869 and Jamison became a marshal in many Texas towns as well as a Texas Ranger before dying in 1906.
