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

Loudon Park Cemetery
Good morning,

I believe Private Yonkowitech (Yanksmith) # 122933696 may incorrectly be listed in Loudon Park National Cemetery. Per your notes, he is likely buried in Loudon Park Cemetery which is adjacent to Loudon Park National Cemetery.

The VA has no record of him buried in the National Cemetery, but Loudon Park Cemetery is also home to several Veterans. Section M in Loudon National only goes up to 299; Loudon Park Cemetery's section M goes into the 500s. Are you quite certain of plot M 979?

Thank you,

Ithiel Hause, Cold Harbor
Mr. Myers,

Thank you for including I. Hause in your Cold Harbor list. I think the cemetery has the stone marked Hanse (B-64). After living many years with that last name, I can see how a cursive letter "u" could be seen as an "n". Thank you for not letting him die in anonymity.
Second thought: Family history has two Hause brothers "killed side by side" in the Revolutionary War at White Plains, New York. I like to imagine J. P. Rickenback and Ithiel Hause (same Co "D" 148th NY Infantry) were like that- side by side at Cold Harbor June 3rd.

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!

RE: Bethel Cemetery
Ted, just read your message of Nov 12th. Regarding a timeline for cleanup, I'm assuming it would be spring-summer? After you contact me with details, I'll contact Shirley, LaPlume Twp Secretary, about the township picking up waste from cemetery.
