Also searching for ANY information on this regiment and its people, such as: copies of diaries, letters, documents, published articles, newspaper accounts, obituaries, family stories that have never been recorded, family lore, etc. Thank you.

RE: Payne Family Graveyard
The information that I have regarding the graveyard is that it was on the family farm on Mt. Horeb Church Road (E Rt 616 near 609 & 639) about one half mile south of Bristersburg. In 1937 the farm was owned by a Mr. Ruffner. There is a single stone shaft bearing serveral names and dates. Hope this helps and good luck. - Pat

RE: John J. Roberts
I appreciate you inquiry about John J. Roberts. Unfortunately, I do not have any records that indicate he was a Confederate Veteran or not. My John J. Roberts was born 18 Jul 1832 in Wales and died in 26 Jan 1897 in Arvonia, Buckingham, Virginia. He and his brother owned one of the slate quarries in Arvonia. I am willing to research this further, if you can provide more information. Thank you for all your work. Sincerely, Barbara

Just wanted to thank you for finding Edmund Berkeley and for sponsoring his memorial page. He is an interesting character along with his brothers and family and they deserve to be remembered in every way possible.
