I have walked over 100 grave yards looking for confederate generals, Colonels, Navy, and Politicians in order to write a book I hope to someday publish I have also located some of the staff officers of the Army of Northern Virginia. I have always had a strong passion for confederate civil war history ever since I was a child. I did my family genealogy in 5 years going all the way back to the 1700's. I am currently working on locating more and more of the Confederate general,confederate statesmen and staff officer graves. It's my hopes to help anyone on here who might have a strong interest in the Confederacy and I also want to be able to make sure all of the staff officers, Generals, and Statesmen receive the proper respect they deserve. If you have any confederate history questions would be honored to answer any of them.|

Rob, a small group of us retirees are currently working on Soul Chapel Cemetery in Chickasaw Co Miss. I fulfilled your request for a photo of Cyrus Briscoe Baldwin's headstone. This cemetery has been abandoned for years and we have worked all summer to uncover and restore as many grave markers as possible. There are approx 35+ CSA veterans here as well as veterans from other wars so far. Some are not marked as such but records show they were.
Many stones are broken and are having to be repaired. There is also a Facebook page on the cemetery if you would like to follow our progress. Kay

I looked up Rebecca's obituary to add her date of death, and I found that she's actually buried in PA and has a Find A Grave memorial there.
I sent this information and her obituary to the person who created her memorial. If you'd like me to send you a copy of that obituary, please send me your email address.

I flag all the soldiers on my cemetery site when I come across a Confederate Soldier and for that matter what ever war they served in I flag them in the listing:
Probably over 15,000 confederates on this site.
Use Google search to find them.

The Soil has eroded from underneath Mr. Tappan's Massive stone and it has tipped over and fallen on its face and cannot be read. I plan to try to get it repaired. I am removing you request for a Photo. Please feel free to place another request. James Earl Sam Price
|Kim Taylor||John F. Newsom|
Rob, my great great grandfather was with John Newsom in Clifton, TN in February 1863. Thomas B. Taylor was captured and taken to Alton Prison in Illinois where he died within a month. I cannot find anything about Newsom's Cavalry formed between 1863 to 1864. Would you by any chance have a roster or have any information? Around 54 men were taken to Alton. Newsom was wounded and they let him go. There is not a lot of history on this event. Thank you, Kim

You recently requested a headstone photo for this gentleman. There was a photo already there but we went there today and hopefully the photo we post will be a little bit easier to read.
|James Earl (Sam) Price||Colonel - General Wirt Adams|
Dear Rob; Do you have him??? Cannot find him. He is buried in Greenwood Cemetery in Jackson, Mississippi.
|James Earl (Sam) Price||Col Diwitt Bonham - 110654879|
Dear Rob; Several of us are trying to make some sense out of the Confederate Dead almost all of whom, for many reasons, are buried in and about Vicksburg City Cemetery. Yes, there is much confusion in the records.
I had never heard of Colonel Bonham until I found your blog.
In the beginning I thought almost certainly that he was buried in Kentucky where he died.
However, since Fisher mentioned him, he is almost surely buried in Vicksburg City Cemetery
These people made a living in the Over FLow Country, but did not want to be buried there. Many families in Issaquena County, Mississippi and in Louisiana, even Lake Providence, had burial plots in Vicksburg City Cemetery
What I am saying is.
If his body came t Vicksburg,
And surely it did or Fishers, the best we have, would not have mentioned it.
I have no evidence , but am pretty well convinced that he is buried in vicksburg City cemetery James Earl (Sam) Price
|James Earl (Sam) Price||Col Robert Woods - 115572356|
Dear Rob; Very interesting fellow. Have not found much on him.
I had Two Grand Uncles, Benjamin & W H Ritchey, who rode with the outfit from beginning to end.
My Great Grand Father, W H Pickett, rode with the outfit from after Vicksburg to the end.
Also, many neighbors were involved.
Very hard outfit to get a handle on.
Known originally as the 1st Mississippi Cavalry, usually known as Wirt Adams Regiment, and after Vicksburg, as Woods Regiment. In addition, many of the companies were detached and operated under the Captains names. Very confusing.
