Great, I just wondered where the information came from. So many of the soldiers that died during the Civil war are buried in graves that are not identified. I knew Hollywood had records, but I had not heard of Oakwood. I will have to put it on my places to go next time I am in the area. I would be interested in your book when you publish it. The Blackards are my cousins.
Thanks for what you are doing.

Thank you for confirming my suspicions! I will send the memorial creators a request to move him to an unknown / virtual cemetery until his correct burial location may be found.
Thank you again,

Your listing for SGT Thomas Nealy Baines is the brother of SGT William Martin Baines of the same unit. William accompanied him on 15 Oct to the hospital where Thomas died in Nov. The name "Tone" could be some sort of nickname apparently unknown to the family, but is most likely Tom, with the m somehow miswritten or misread as 'ne.'
He is the son of Rev George Washington Baines, early (but not first as some articles claim) President of Baylor University. William and Thomas are both Great Uncles of Lyndon Baines Johnson. We will be hosting the Wm. Baines great-grandchildren on 28 May when we mark his grave in Mt. Hope Cemetery, San Diego, with an Iron Cross. Robyn (Stonewall Jackson Chapter 476 UDC)

I noticed that you have posted several items on find a grave regarding CSA soldiers buried at Woodlawn National in Elmira. I am, currently working on a virtual cemetery with all of the CSA Buriels , so that they will all be listed and photographed when I've completed it. It's quite an undertaking and will take sometime to complete. There are 2739 grave sites, the virtual cemetery is not visible to the public as yet but will be when completed.
