Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Washington, DC, but I grew up on a small farm in the Landon community, 5 miles north of Gulfport, MS. I have lived in the greater Houston, TX area since 1972. I am recently retired and am now able to spend more time on genealogy and cemetery searches.

I have been actively involved in genealogy since 2005, and I wish I had started sooner. I am a participant in the WEBB Surname DNA project, and I am actively involved in EDGAR, DICKINSON and HIGH Surname DNA projects.

Surnames of special research interest include: WEBB, BEWLEY, VON HASSELN, CARTER, MCCORD, DAVIS, MILLER, HIGH, LAWRENCE, BOBO, BLASSINGAME, EDGAR, WITHERINGTON, WOLLARD, DICKINSON, POWER, KINNISON, MCMANUS, BROWN, MAYS, SMITH, WRIGHT, BATCHELOR, PRIDGEN, DONNELLY, KNOX, DOUGLASS, GOODE, CULPEPPER, GUTHRIE, GARNER, STONE, BLUM, HART, MURPHREE, PATTON, SWISHER, WALTERS, ADAM, MCCLEOD, WYLIE, CLARKSON, COTTER, MEARA, HANRAHAN, MEEHAN, MORAN, TOBIN, NOLAN, MURPHY, and others, especially in TX, OK, MS, LA, GA, SC, NC, TN, VA, PA, NJ and NY (and England, Scotland and Ireland).

I especially enjoy collaborating with other researchers and finding and sharing more information about our ancestors. Find A Grave has been a wonderful resource for my cousins and me in our ancestral research, and we are trying to increasingly do our parts to contribute.

If any of the memorials I am managing are for your family members (if closer to you than to me), I will be happy to transfer them to you. I continue to be impressed with and inspired by the gracious, cooperative, respectful attitudes of most Find A Grave contributors.

Emery Deatherage's Civil War service
Hello Bob,

I can't remember if I've contacted you about Emery Deatherage in the past - if so, please disregard. (Just got a new computer and all my old emails got trashed in the transfer).

I see that you have been busy posting memorials, photos, and other information about the descendants of Emery & Lucinda Deatherage (Memorial # 31429402).

My great grandfather, Matthew Henry Deatherage (Memorial # 47961192) and Emery were first cousins; their families were living in Patrick County Virginia at the onset of Civil War.

In June of 1861, Matthew, Emery, and Emery's brother, Leabon enlisted in Company K of the 50th Virginia Infantry. Matthew was discharged with a medical problem the following November (he later re-enlisted in the 8th Virginia Cavalry) but, Emery stayed with the regiment and rose to the rank of sergeant.

On May 5, 1864 Emery & Leabon were both captured at the Battle of the Wilderness and sent off to northern POW camps. Emery managed to secure a parole and was released under a prisoner exchange the following September.

I was wondering if you knew of Emery's service with the 50th Va. and if he had left and memoirs or passed any his war history on to his children or descendants.

Best regards,
Dave Deatherage

Dear Bob,

Thank you so much. Seeing and reading this family history brings many memories of our Johnson heritage. The work you have done in telling the stories of loved ones, who are now at rest, is most appreciated.

We are the fortunate ones, who have you as a very dedicated Genealogist. Much is added to the rich history of our ancestors through your research as descendants of Dr. Samuel Burling Dickinson and Caroline Elizabeth Kinnison Dickinson.

Dear Bob,
I am not a descendant, but the husband of Joan (Druesedow) Griggs was a descendant. I will send your message to her son, Dr. John C Griggs, who took the photo of the portrait.
Best,
Bradford

RE: Olin L. WEBB's Parents
Bob,
I was just writing Find A Grave about this problem and when I switched back to Olin's memorial his parents were there. Just like magic! Thanks so much for the quick response.

Memorial on John Webb
I noticed that it is listed on John Webb's Memorial, Find A Grave Memorial# 76528051, that he was Adj General during the Revolutionary War. I have been trying to find some additional reference for his Revolutionary War service in preparing genealogy data for 92 year old, Vergil Rodgers, a descendant of John Webb. Vergil was a front gunner on a B-24 during WWII, and I would like to get a little booklet prepared for him while he is still in good health.

Do you have any information or know where I can locate more information or references on John Webb's Revolutionary War service?

Thanks,
David Couch
