I know not how to light the path of the future, but by the lamp of the past. P.Henry|
One should appreciate, or even study the past. It will always be there and grows larger every day. The study of time can be abstract. It does not need to be quantified or even orderly. Because it is all-encompassing, there is something for everyone. G.Seitz
I had added some whiny drivel here about the site removing photographs for months. Well, on March 23rd 537 of them magically reappeared. I confess not understanding and being well on the way to not caring. But that is not my nature.
My home is circa 1784. Its situation is such that it fell in the line of battle during the conflict between the States. When my father died, I was too early at the cemetery for the appointment concerning the necessary arrangements. To pass the time I paid a visit to the antique shop close by. Displayed there was a book which possessed a title that gave me the idea that my home may be mentioned within. Upon opening it, the pages fell directly to a description and photograph of my old place. It was not intended for the purpose, but the volume became a much worn field guide as I sought to visit and photograph other antebellum homes in the vicinity. I pursued that objective with interest and vigor. This caused me to notice the old churches en route and I began to photograph them. Behind the churches were cemeteries. Cemeteries that I found to be serene and sublime, full of lore. In turn they led me here and I stayed.

|Tim Burgess||Pvt. Charles Chon, CSA|
Dear Mr. Seitz, I found the website you mentioned of the Chinese Confederate Soldier, Pvt. Charles Chon killed at the Battle of Franklin, Tennessee. The photo on Find a Grave may be in error. The website has the image but the caption states it is Cpl. Pearce of a Connecticut Regiment. Thanks, Tim Burgess
|John Horn||Virginius Despaux Groner|
May I use the image you posted in findagrave to illustrate a history of the 12th Virginia Infantry? Groner commanded its brigade at various times.
PS Groner had been one of the couriers bearing the order to fire on Fort Sumter at the war's beginning.
|John Horn||Allen Washington Magee|
May I use the photo you posted at findagrave.com of Allen Washington Magee to illustrate a book on his regiment?
Some details about Magee are in "War Talks of Confederate Veterans."
|Tim Burgess||RE: Charles Chon|
Thanks anyway for the speedy reply. Sincerely, Tim
|Tim Burgess||Charles Chon|
Mr. Seitz, could I have your permission to use the image of this Confederate Soldier for my research of the Confederate Dead from the Battle of Franklin, Tennessee. I have been gathering theirs names, units, ranks, biographical material and images for the past 30 years.
Thank you for your time and attention to my request. Sincerely, Tim Burgess
|Linda Simpson Davidson||RE: Joseph Leith|
George, why not add all of your wonderful contributions to the memorial that was created first (including the full name)....or contact the owner of the memorial that was created first and see if she would remove that one.
|John Horn||Leroy Summerfield Edwards|
I'm illustrating a history of his regiment and would like permission to use his photo. If you can't give permission, please tell me where the photo is available.
|Jeff Lovelace||New Release|
My new WBTS book has been released by the Olde Buncombe Genealogical Society. It is now available and I wanted you to read it. You can find it online at OBCGS.com. This represents 12 long years of work, writing and research, so it's a long awaited victory. The book is titled, Mountain Conflict; The Union Army Finally Reaches Asheville. Be sure to pass it on to your comrades and friends as well.
|Seedlings||RE: Joseph Miller Long|
Thanks for the clean up of my great grandfather's picture. i would be happy if you would take down the one with holes in it and leave the lovely new copy. You might say that it is from a family collection.
As to his war service, I can find not record of his serving int he military although I did find where he signed up in Iowa in 1863 where he was listed as farming with his brother James and David.
|Louis du Mort||RE: Bub|
Had I seen the name 'Bub', I would have assumed he was a trucker before he was a biker. Turns out, he was both!
What a bummer that his three sons died at birth.
Thanks for shooting this my way.
