Bio Photo DOES ANYONE KNOW THE NAME OF THIS UNION OFFICER? He appears to be a 2LT. What is HIS NAME AND UNIT? On the reverse side of the photo it says Partridge's Gallery, Wheeling West Virginia.

Findagrave was founded in 1998. When I first joined this site back in July 1999, we had to mail our photos to Utah and they would upload the records. I can account for 179 famous records on this site that show me as the one who found and created the famous record. F-A-G only shows 112 This meant I did not get credit for many records. Anytime you see my photos dated before 2002, that meant I found the records but only credited with the photo. I have numerous trees on ancestry that I have done for friends. Ancestry com is where family trees are put together. Findagrave is a separate entity---This is one of my contributions I leave to future posterity.

Tips on researching your family tree.
Records from the 1800s:
Example 1. Mary T. Lincoln, the 'T'
usually represents her maiden name, not her middle initial.
Example 2. Robert Todd Lincoln. The first born son's middle name is usually his mothers maiden name.In this example, Todd is his mothers maiden name.

My goal is to do Quality Work, Not Quantity Work.Copyright information: You may use my photos. Most people do not give credit to the people who actually take the photos.People listed as FAMOUS on this site are "maintained by findagrave", which means only they can edit/add information. Any records I have that are Famous, I can't change a thing for you, sorry.

Your 2LT Photo from Wheeling, W VA
Hi Tom,

Well I did some looking around for Partridges Gallery in Wheeling and came up with the Library of Congress site that had a picture similar to yours. It was a Union Soldier standing next to the same or a very similar table. They had an "ask a librarian" place to contact them, so I wrote and explained about your wonderful photo. It says it could take 5 days for an answer, but you never know. It would be so cool to find him and at the least, create a memorial for him.

I don't see an email address on your Find A Grave page, but if you're interested, feel free to write to me at

I'm a Find A Grave volunteer as well, and with some friends, photographed recorded the Benicia Army Barracks Cemetery in Benicia, California.

Best regards,
Susan Stuart

Hi Tom,

Thanks so very much for your addition and time! Also thank you for the wonderful picture of the Union Soldier! I sure wish I knew who he was. Is there nothing more on the photo?

Thanks again!

RE: Delaney Samuel Washburn
Thanks. I have looked him up - not there. I think he belonged to the Missouri State Guard, a Confederate counterpoint to the Missouri State Militia. Have found names of officers for the Guard on line but not enlisted men.

RE: Delaney Samuel Washburn
Thanks for the reply. His name was John Alexander Wysong, identified as J. A. Wysong in the massacre stories. In 1860 he was 16, living with his parents, James and Mary Jane Wysong in Adair County, Missouri, adjacent to Macon County where the massacre occurred. I had not been able to learn what unit of the Missouri Confederate guard he belonged to.

Delaney Samuel Washburn
My relative, J. A. Wysong, was executed with Delaney in 1862. Can you give me information about how to find out more about this incident? Found nothing some time ago when I tried to research him.

I guess you did not find a Michael Joseph Lucido with Virginia Lucido?

Thanks again for all your hard work,
