Bio Photo I am a career US Army officer and serve as President and Historian for the 15th Infantry Regiment Association. I am conducting research on all aspects of the 15th US Infantry Regiment. Current projects include identifying the final resting places of all Civil War soldiers of the regiment, especially those KIA, those died of disease in prisoner of war camps and elsewhere, and those who died while serving in the South during reconstruction.

I am also the Historian for the Society of the 3rd Infantry Division, United States Army; a member of the Army Historical Foundation; and a member of the 1814 Society.

Hey, just when I got out of the USMC active, they did away with mess duty, backin 1987. Mess duty used to be part of the USMC, and well know for testing you and your stamina, but gov't contractors took over the chow halls at Camp Lejuene as I completed my 4 years.

RE: Thank you
You're quite welcome, Tim. Your request for a picture of John Murphy's stone caused me some confusion because there are four John Murphy's buried in the Marietta National Cemetery. The John Murphy buried in plot A-396 appears to have died, from the research I conducted, 30 Sep 1866, possibly during the post-war occupation of Atlanta. One of the other John Murphy's in the cemetery appears to have been in the same unit as the A-396 John Murphy, i.e. Co. A, 3rd Batt., 15th U.S. Infantry. The second John Murphy is buried in plot E-5559 next to several other members of the 15th USI, including Samuel Nunneville (E-5556), Daniel Reichart E-5557 and William Hennesy (E-5558). If you are interested, I took photos of all four of these headstones in one picture and would be happy to forward them to you. Just drop me a note at if you would like the additional pictures.

RE: 8-14-13
The duplicates are TE Whiteside and H Symington, but you did not answer my question about adding bios/war records, etc. to the memorials. Will you do that? I am going t the cemetery tis afternoon and I will post the photos.

Yesterday you created some "new" memorials at Chattanooga National Cemetery for veterans who already have memorials. I am a data manager for this cemetery and will be merging your duplicates, but the question is: If I retain you as manager of any, will you then be adding their biographies and/or service records? If you say yes, I will be inclined to let your new er memorial stand.

RE: Davis, Ogilvie, Dalton
Evening Mr Stoy. I know what you mean . Mr Davis was the worst one I have taken so far where you couldnt make out his name etc. I wished I had thought of it at the time to take a photo of the back of his stone with his number on it. When I go over that way again I will get one . Most of them you can read pretty good and I have done 16 so for from there but the older ones from that time period are starting to fade from time and the weather . I don't know if they replace them or not ?

Kind regards
Sandra Powell StClair
