Bio Photo *Honorary member Major General John Bankhead Magruder Chapter #258 Military Order of Stars & Bars (M.O.S.B)*

*Honorary member Rev. Beverly Tucker Lacy Camp 2141 Virginia Sons of Confederate Veterans (S.C.V.)*

As a lifetime history buff, and having lived near some old cemeteries, it is only "natural" that the two are now combined.
I've catalogued all the Confederate fallen in the Spotsylvania Confederate Cemetery in Spotsylvania Courthouse, Va. I will soon publish a roster/book with these findings and short bios/service records of these men. A copy will be presented to the Spotsylvania Courthouse Museum.
Also, I'm in the process of doing the same for the Confederate fallen and veterans in the Fredericksburg Confederate and City cemeteries.

As Historian of the above cemeteries, please feel free to inquire of any Confederate burials.
Also, I give tours of each.

The Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania County Battlefields National Park Service refers Confederate burial inquiries to me.

Please include source(s) for ALL edits. Too many times incorrect edits have been submitted, so I rarely accept non-email edits. THANKS for understanding--

RE: Dr Abraham F Cox YOB
Thank you. Should I post a copy of The Evening Star obit?

RE: Dr Abraham F Cox YOB
I understand your dilemma. According to census records his age was listed as follows: 1850-17, 1860-26, 1870-35, 1880-46. Also his obit from The Evening Star, Washington, DC, Tuesday, Sept 16, 1902, lists his age as abt 68. Thank you for all your contributions. They have been so very helpful to me and I know so many other researchers.
