|Bio and Links|
Retired from twenty-two years in the U.S. Marine Corps in 1990. Have lived in beautiful East Tennessee since 2004. My wife, Nikki Lynn, and I are interested in helping folks with their local cemetery picture requests.|
I am a descendant of the Herrings of Madison County, Georgia. Four brothers (along with their half-brother, James W. Payton) enlisted in Company A, 16th GA Volunteer Infantry Regiment, CSA (Madison County Greys) in 1861/62.
One brother, Henry L. Herring (my gg grandfather), survived, although he lost the use of an arm from a gunshot wound inflicted at Chancellorsville.
Also, their father, Alpheus Herring (age 51 in 1862), in the defense of his country, joined Echol's Light Artillery, CSA when it was organized in July, 1862; he survived.
"Their bodies are buried in peace; but their name liveth for evermore." - Ecclus 44: 14
"The past isn't gone. It isn't even past."
"To be ignorant of what occurred before you were born is to remain always a child. For what is the worth of human life, unless it is woven into the lives of our ancestors by the records of history?"

From a grateful Navy Hospital Corpman with 7 years of service, 3 FMF, to the United States Marine Corp. My best memories of military service.

There is another memorial for this person in a different cemetery that was made 2012. He is listed as being in Silver Brook Cemetery and there is also a headstone picture for him there as well. It appears to be the same headstone. Im not sure which maybe correct but wanted to make you aware.

You're welcome R.D!
I was just reading some of the notes between you and James(Romper90069). I'm glad the photos are taken care of. I did submit an edit to have the birth year corrected for PFC Robert Olvera. If the person managing this memorial doesn't correct the error, it should automatically correct after twenty one days!

Yes, they did have wonderful life, and very much in Love. He never let what happened to him sour his outlook. I have many cousins, but he was my favorite. Yes, he certainly was a Hero.

Thank you for the Tribute you left on my Cousin's Memorial. Thank you too for your Service to Our Country. It is Honored and Appreciated.
|Romper90069||RE: Memorial 65744793|
I just got their burial locations and we will get this done. Thank you for doing this and allowing us to hone these heros!! James
|Romper90069||RE: Memorial 65744793|
Sir, The dates on this memorial make the person 13 yers of age. I did write to Linda whom I have worked with along with another person who does most of the requests at Calvary and between us, we will get this corrected. If needed we will contact you to move the funeral photos to a correct memorial. We want to get this right in his honor and the fellow hero buried next to him. James
The photos and edits you sent on this memorial can't be the correct person. This kid was 13 when he died. Doubt he was killed in Korea....James

you posted a picture of him on his memorial #159407374 are you related to him? I am seeing if I can find a family member to see if they would fill out the paperwork for a marker of his service so his grave will be marked
