Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired Huntsville Alabama Police Officer. I have been a student of local history for many years. My main interests lie in Alabama Civil War Units. One of the saddest things about the Civil War was that so many young men left home and were never heard from again. Their families never knew how or where they died or where they were buried. Thanks to the work of many Findagrave contributors, I have reunited many of these brave men,if only in a virtual cemetery. These cemeteries are a constant work in progress and a tedious undertaking. If you have a relative that has not yet been included, please let me know and it would be my honor to add them. I welcome any and all info on any of my memorials and am always happy to transfer your kin folk. If you visit the memorial of any of these brave men, please honor them in any way you see fit. Whether or not you believe their cause was just, does not matter. What matters is that men from both sides fought and died protecting the only way of life they had ever known. "Alas! In how many Southern homes aching hearts waited through weary months for news of loved ones that never came until the suspense was replaced by the real certainty that the absent one had helped to swell the unknown dead of the Wheatfield, the Peach Orchard, or the Devil's Den of a Northern land."--J. Howard Wert. Sometimes I come home from work with a sore back or tired feet or maybe even a headache. Then I think of a 18 year old boy lying wounded in a dark field. He's hundreds of miles from home. He's thirsty,hungry and cold. He's crying for his Mama. Or I think of Robert and Sarah Milling, of Dallas County, who lost their five sons to the Confederate cause in the 20th Alabama Infantry. Suddenly, I don't feel so bad afterall.

Civil War soldier
Dear Sir, I have been searching for my Great Grandfather David Samuel Wingard. He served in the 5th Infantry Company H and was mustered in at Montgomery, Al. in 1861. I believe that his name was given as DS Wingheard/Wingherd/Wingood when he enlisted or at his death. I think his unit was merged with Company I at a later date but am not positive.
He died on Jan. 17, 1863 in Virginia and I believe he is buried in Hollywood Cemetery in a unmarked grave. He died from pneumonia in the Wayside Receiving Hospital in Va.
He was born in Coosa Co. Al. in 1831 and was married to Nancy Lambert Wingard. He had two sons when he enlisted my grandfather Irvin Wingard born 1854 and David Samuel Wingard Jr. born the same year he left for the war in 1861.
I know many years went by before my grandfather ever found out how he died and where he died. I believe one of my uncles who lived in Michigan went to DC and looked at the record on him.
I would like to make a memorial for him in Hollywood Cem. but have no exact place of his burial although I believe it is there in Hollywood Cem.
Is there anyway a memorial can be created for him so his family can be linked to him. I don't want to go against any rules but it would be wonderful if he could be united with his family..
Can you give me any more info on him and if he is in Hollywood Cemetery and if a memorial can be created for him.
Thank you for your time.

Dear Sir,

My gr-grandfather was Major of 53rd Ala cavalry.
He served under Moses Hannon and was paroled from
Johnson's Island prison in Nov. 1864. He is buried in Geneva city cemetery in Geneva Alabama.
He was also a Mason; thus the Masonc symbol on his headstone. I am a member of the SCV, William
McCain camp #584 in Columbia Tn.

Possible Transfer of Find A Grave Memorial# 153167838
Hi Hutch,

Find A Grave Memorial# 153167838

Would you be interested in transferring SGT Wesley Bradford to me?

We've previously discussed changes to his entry.

Thanks in advance,

Cpl Willougby Wesley Gibson
Hello! I'm a descendant of Willoughby Wesley Gibson whose Find A grave memorial you manage. The family legally renamed the Bozone Cemetery to the Gibson Cemetery several years back. I have added the Gibson cemetery and added memorials for Willoughby, his baby daughter and the only other person buried there (Judith Delphne Gibson Patrick). I did this not realizing there was already a memorial for Willoughby Wesley Gibson.

I'm not sure how to correct this duplication. Maybe having you delete the memorial you have would be the answer since the cemetery is now renamed.

And I am willing to administer the Gibson Cemetery since it is one for our family. It is located behind our Great-Grandfather's home site in Choctaw County, AL.

Thanks so much,

Peggy sanders

Wesley F. MOORE: Co. F, 12th Alabama Infantry
I apologize. I have been unable to locate his gravesite over the 25 years I have searched. I know it is Texas. I know he died working the RR in Texas in the late 1870's of heat exhaustion. When I find it I will be happy to add his name. AND THANKS for adding Micajah.
