.....or that's the way I look at what we all do here, at least. And while all of us are not professional genealogists, we're all here to document history, for ourselves and others....

That said, accuracy is of the utmost importance here, in my opinion.

RE: PVT Thomas C. Tulley info
Well, I browse various cemeteries in Ohio and Indiana for graves of men that lived from about 1830 to 1910. When I find one I download the National Park Service records (www.nps.gov) which will sometimes show a Regiment and Company for that man. Then I download www.google.com amd type in the roster for that respective regiment, which is on www.civilwarindex.gov. Then scroll down to the respective company and look for the soldier's name and rank. Privates are in alphabetical order, higher ranking soldiers are not. Once I see the soldier's name that matches the Find A Grave memorial, I jot down the man's rank, date of enlistment, date mustered out, where he was captured, wounded, or killed on notebook paper.
Then I can upload the data to the Find A Grave memorial.

RE: Pauline Montoya stone pics
They used to fill the letters in with black, from the early 1980s into the 1990s, but then ones from before and after that are just the carved stone. And in a lot of them that were colored, it has worn away.

You are welcome. Those white-on white stones are tricky!

Thanks for the message!

I have a book titled "The Zehrbach, Zearbaugh, Cearbaugh Family History".... it's my husband's family and we got the book at a family reunion in 1994. If you're interested, I've posted more complete information on Jeanette and her ancestors (and more complete source info) at the following link: http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Zehrbach-37

Now that I'm retired, I've found the time to work on our family lines.

Enjoy,
Peggy Mac

Hugh Smith, d. Sept. 13, 1859
You have a listing for Hugh Smith, who died on Sept. 13, 1859 of alcohol poisoning. I have learned that he was a lawyer, and was born on August 13, 1820.
Do you have any information beyond that?

Thank you.

John Fayette #62630032
I have just run across your entry on John Fayette and his parents. I am very curious if you have documentation for his New Orleans birth, and origins of his parents. That fits with the family oral tradition of his origin, but in the 1900 census he cites California as his place of birth. My wife is a Great Granddaughter of John and Carlotta. I have some other information that supports the California origin, and would like to communicate more with you about it.
