Bio and Links
Bio Photo I began doing family genealogy over 30 years ago.After I retired from the military, I became very interested in the Civil War. I had visited many civil war cemeteries, and the many unknown soldiers buried in them. Every soldier who died in war for his country should be known and honored. And the families of the soldier should be able to know where he is buried, this has been my goal to provide that information to those who are searching for a soldier.

I spend a great deal of my time traveling to battlefields and cemeteries, and researching information on a soldier or person. If at anytime I can be of help or if you need more information please contact me. Or if you have more information on a soldier. If a correction needs to be made "PLEASE" contact me. Don't write an other "BIO" in the Flowers and Notes section of the Memorial. Leave a message or email me anytime.

I will tranfer memorials if it is a request made by a relative of a soldier. If you are not related please do not ask. If you have information in regards to a soldiers memorial I will be more then happy to add it.

"The Bivouac of The Dead"

The muffled drums sad roll's all beat
the soldier's last tatoo,
No more on life's parade shall meet
The brave and fallen few.

The neighing troop, the flashing blade,
The bugles stirring blast,
The charge,the dreadful cannonade,
The din and shout are past.

Rest on embalmed and sainted dead,
Dear as the blood ye gave,
No impious footstep here shall thread.
The herbage of your grave,

On fame's enternal camping ground,
Their silent tents are spread,
And glory guards with solemn round,
The bivouac of the dead.

No vision of the morrow's strife
The warrior's dream alarms,
No braying horn nor screaming fife
At dawn shall call to arms,

No rumor of the foe's advance
Now sweeps upon the wind,
No troubled thought at midnight haunts
Of love ones left behind,

Your own proud land's heroic soil
must be your fitter grave;
She claims from war his richest spoil,
The ashes of the brave.

-Theodore O'Hara-

Note: In making correction to memorials, I will make corrections, Birth dates, Death dates, Marriage dates add a spouse or children, if they have memorials, I will not add long Bio's, I just don't have the time. If you have a Bio I will be more then happy to transfer a memorial to you to add a bio, when finished just transfer it back. I spent a great deal of time traveling to battlefields and cemeteries which takes up a lot of my time, I would be greatful for any help you can give me in regards to memorials.

Re: Harvey S. Curtiss
Hi Ted, You've put together a nice page for Harvey S. Curtiss. #90939447. I assume that because you have a photo, you may be related.

I see that Eileen Bennett has added his parents as Stephen Curtiss and Hettie Peaslee, but we have a Curtiss family journal saying his father was Joseph Curtiss. Do you have any Citations for Stephen such as a bible page, family history, etc. I've talked to Eileen, who added the note, and she does not.

Thank you - Susan Davis

TURNER: Evergreen Woodlawn Cem
Ted, looking over Evergreen Woodlawn Cemetery, you never deleted Almira (Elmira) Turner, since she's buried in Bethel Cemetery, LaPlume. Also, I added UTLEY TURNER not realizing that he was already listed on F.A.Grave. Can you merge his entries? He's buried with his first wife, Roba. I found their headstone and added a picture of it to site. Thanks, Mary Lou
Have a Merry Christmas!

I added Bethel Cemetery to Find A Grave site and added Margaret Hedden, Almira Turner, the Darrows and Bunstines.

someone had added the cemetery in Wyoming Co. but it is actually Lackawanna Co.

RE: Heddens
If you're on, my tree is public so you would be able to view my records. I think I did a pretty good job with the Hedden family, beginning with Lewis and Margaret Tuttle Hedden, on down to the present. If your parents are George and Harriet, you are my 3rd cousin 1x removed.

I didn't know anything about them until I joined Ancestry about 4 years ago and started searching. My maternal grandmother was Florence Hedden (Franey). Her father was Charles Hedden, born in Factoryville about 1868, son of Joseph Hedden (Almira's brother) and Hattie Higgins. Margaret (Tuttle) Hedden was my 3rd great grandmother. Do you have any records for Almira's siblings Sarah, born 1862 NJ; Mary, born 1839 NJ; John born 1840 NJ?

Thank You
Dear Ted, Thank You for taking the time to find our soldiers. I was thrilled to see my great great grandfather name's (Thomas Horan) listed for Cathedral Cemetery, Scranton, PA. You really do not know how I am feeling as are some of my cousin who never knew this about him.

More importantly is the fact that people like you and before you who put a CW marker in the veterans area of this cemetery. It was amazing that was done in first place, never mind going above and beyond that call of duty. Thank You!

As I have learned and read about his service to this country, he was in the Civil War for ONE year. He served with Co. B 136th Reg't PA Infantry but that is all I know about the man except that after the war he married and had a large family and worked the coal mines as a laborer.

I also volunteer my time researching the Civil War Soldiers of Wyoming Co., PA and would be willing to share what I have on them. Please feel free to get in touch with me. Email: Thanks again for all you do. Gina
