Baxter B. Fite III
Private GREEN BURGESS, Co. K, 86th Illinois
Ed, I was just wondering if you could tell me anything about the picture. It is not a Civil War era uniform he is wearing and I am guessing the picture was taken in the 1880's. Perhaps he is in his 30's. I was wondering if there was anything on the back of the picture that might tell you where it was taken and when? How did you come by the picture? Anything you can tell me about it would be of interest. Thanks, Baxter

Dear Mr. Wright, I don't remember whether I have written to you before or not. I don't remember seeing the picture of Green Burgess before so I don't believe that I have, but then again, I'm not getting any younger and I am working on the biographies of all 992 members of the 86th Illinois at the same time.
I have spent the last few days trying to get all of Green Burgess' nine grandchildren linked to their parents. Green, of course, had four children and they are all linked. Could you tell me how you are related to Green?
Could you also tell me how you came by the picture and how you know it is Green? I really believe that there are pictures of Green out there somewhere of him in uniform. Do you have any other pictures of Green or know someone who might? Looking forward to hearing from you. Sincerely, Baxter

RE: transfers
No problem Ed. I am still working slowly on the cemetery. I have about 250 more photos to upload, but as I am currently in East Africa, my ability to do it is very limited. I know of another person who is currently working on the cemetery as well, so if you don't find people that you know is there yet, keep coming back. I will be back in August to Chicago and will probably do some more work at St. Boniface as I have time. If you find any more relatives, I will be happy to transfer.

RE: Thank you
It is my pleasure to assist you and an enjoyable hobby of mine when time allows to volunteer my photos for Find a Grave searchers.

Have a blessed day,
