Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am another lover of history and genealogy. After 26 years of research, I have a pretty good idea of how I came to be, and it's been fascinating!

The majority of the memorials that I have posted are of people who are related to me. If you want to ask about them, use either the Edit button on their page or leave a message here. If you send me new information using the Edit button, please make sure that it's based on a good source. I will probably ask you for it.

One request: Please do NOT post death certificates on my memorials. I do not consider them a good use of a picture. Most my memorials already have all the information from the person's death certificate (if it exists). Please do not post any other documents either, such as census pages.

Two of my favorite verses: "For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him." (John 3:17) and "Yet to all who received Him, to those who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God." (John 1:12)

John Hill Luther

You posted a picture from a brochure located at Baylor University concerning my ancestor Johh Hill Luther.

There is a memorial headstone/statue at the North Belton Cemetery, Belton, TX, posted by another member. John Hill Luther died in Sau Paulo, Brazil and stories exist that his bones were returned to TX when the family returned from Missions work. Are you aware of any death certificate info for my ancestor?

Are you related, or can you share any contacts that I can seek out concerning death certificate information?

RE: Daniel Eldredge
I did a couple of years ago. I was told it was their relative; and they ought to know.
I have even offered to share his Civil War records, but......
Have a great day.

Daniel Eldredge
Sorry. I got my fingers on the wrong keys.
I got this information (below) from a fellow researcher. If you can edit the photo to Lt. rather than Capt. that would be great.

Hi Fran,

You are correct that he did decline the promotion to Capt. I have two references as well that state this.

The bio I posted came from the following book that references his rank as Capt.: Source: Officers of the Volunteer Army and Navy who served in the Civil War, published by L.R. Hamersly & Co., 1893, 419 pgs.

The image that was posted by the other individual appears to have come from some unidentified publication that has him as Capt. I suspect they were not aware he declined the position.

All of the images posted on his memorial page are Eldredge. I've attached one more for you which shows him as a Sergt.

Did you notice that whoever created the Find-a-Grave memorial page posted this info which is not for our Daniel Eldredge? It's for a Daniel Eldridge (different spelling.)


Enlisted as a Private on 14 May 1861 in New York City, NY at the age of 16,
Enlisted in Company K, 32nd Infantry Regiment New York on 31 May 1861.
Was Wounded on 07 May 1862
Mustered out on 09 June 1863 in New York, NY.

Daniel Eldredge
Hi Sueellen,
I was just looking at Daniel Eldredge's Memorial Page. I not sure if the photo you entered is on the Correct memorial page. Daniel was never a Captain. He was a LT.
You may want to research this a little further.

Thanks so much!

William James Rousseau Photo
Hi Suellen,

Would you please add a "NOTE:" to the info on the below picture to the effect that "It is W J Rousseau, NOT H K Rousseau who is the oldest in the picture." It must be a printer error.

There is an H K Rousseau and he is the son of W J, but was not old enough to be in the Civil War.

Thanks so much for the picture and the clarification!

RE: Amaryllis Johnson in Martinsburg Cemetery
Hi Suellen,

I am not related to any of this family. I just happened to live near the Martinsburg Cemetery and wanted to document the monuments that are there. I got an email with the research on this family from a relative and this is the site:

Have a great day!
