Just a note to let you know I have found an account of his death in the Cherokee newspaper, and have added it to his page.

Thought you might like to know that I have just 'done' North Sunderland. I have done all of the St Paul's graveyard and part of the cemetery extension nearby. It will take me a while to put them all on here but I will try to put your list on as soon as I can.

I can't have a proper look at the moment as I'm not at home, but as soon as I get back there I will go through your list of names and put the transcriptions and photos on the site so you can see what I've got.
I've been right through the churchyard and the annex and done all the graves, except for a couple that were unreadable.
If you send me the names and death year for the ones you think are buried there, I will check it against my list to see if I've got the details and photo for you.
Give me a few days and I will come back to you!
Not visiting the north east until next year now, but if I go back to that area I can always have a look for some of your relatives.

Dear Mark Bell,
I heard about 'Find a Grave' & I joined tonight.
I was searching in the Hosey Hill cemetery & came across your name.
I've heard your name spoken amongst my Lyons' family relatives..& I wonder if we're 'related'..
During the War, 1942, my Mom had a young girl staying with us to help out with the 6 of us children. Her name was Theresa Bell. One day she was gone & we were never told where she went. When we asked, we were told to 'stop asking questions'..Anyhow, I've always wondered about her. She was so much fun & so kind to us.
I think my Mom said she lived in Cherokee & needed to go to school in Pittsburg.
If by any chance, you know of this girl, will you let me know? I sure would appreciate hearing from you. My Aunts, Bud Rinehart, Edna Donnelly, Mary Mays, all spoke highly of you. Seems that you had called at different times to speak to them about relatives. My Dad's mother was Mary Ellen O'Malley. I 'kind of' remember that my Mom said Theresa was our cousin because her mother was a sister to Grandmother O'Malley.
Sorry this is so long. Hope you don't mind my 'chatter'.
Bridget Lyons VanHouten

Dear Mark, Thanks for getting the great pictures of the 4 members of the 86th Illinois buried in Nashville that I still needed. It is greatly appreciated. Thanks for all that you have done and for all that will yet do for Find A Grave. Sincerely, Baxter
|Gail K||The Hutchison's|
Thank you very much for taking the time to photograph the Hutchison's markers. They are family and we were not able to go ourselves. Much appreciated!

I noticed you took up the request for this interment .
While I was at the cemetery yesterday I was also looking for another interment in the same section as this one and I noticed that James C Armstron is in the same section B but his plot number is 5673 beyond the row of what was put in the database .
|Arleen||Peter Vilutis, Jr|
If you would call the office and get the grave location I will be glad to get a picture for you. I can only go on Sundays and the office is closed that day.

The 86th Illinois arrived at Nashville, Tennessee on Nov. 7, 1862 after participating in the Battle of Perryville, Kentucky and helping to drive the Confederate forces out of Kentucky. The men of the 86th remained there, making short marches in and out of Nashville until August 20, 1863. For much of this time, they were camped "under the guns of Fort Negley." My dad was from Resaca, Georgia, the site of the first major engagement between General Johston and General Sherman during the "Atlanta Campaign" and another Battle in which the 86th partipated in, and most if not all of our vacations included a stop in Resaca to see my grandparents. The drive from Peoria to Resaca alwyas took us through Nashville and for years, I never realized that Fort Negley still existed. When I first found out about the Fort, I contacted a City Managers Office and got a personal tour through the Fort. Now of course, it is open to the public. I made six trips through Nashville last year and at least once a year, I stop at Fort Negley. As I stand on the fortification, I always imagine I am looking down on the encampment of the old 86th.
The 86th Illinois had one of the very first histories published of all of the thousands of Regiments that served during the war. It is not an elaborate history like the ones that were published years later, it is just a simple history. You can find it on Google. Just type in "86th Illinois" and the last name of the author, "Kinnear" and you can read or print off the whole history.
Thanks again for everything that you are doing. Perhaps someday we can meet at Fort Negley or the Nashville National Cemetery. Take care and keep up the good work that you are doing. Sincerely, Baxter
