Bio and Links
Bio Photo If you share an ancestor with me, I'd love to hear from you and trade info, or pictures, or whatever I have. I would appreciate whatever you have. I am always eager to meet a new cousin.

You are entitled to use any photo I have posted. I took them so others could see the gravestones of their ancestors and families. You are entitled to use any photo (or document) of a person I have posted on my memorials. I have access to an extensive family treasure of photos--which I have scanned and cataloged. I am more than willing to share.

If you have photos or documents of a family member of mine, a copy would be greatly appreciated.

Since retiring after 36 years in publishing, I've transitioned from publishing McGraw-Hill mathematics textbooks to creating books about travel, family members, and the Civil War. Family names include: Block, Norden, Luderman, Potterf, Morris, Young, Rulf, and Kesling. My wife's family names include Swift, Wach, Volz, Allen, McMillan, Garreaux, Pettingill, Nankervis, and Yendow.

For the Civil War, I'm most interested in the 14th OVI, Company E. I'm trying to identify the place of burial for all the members of Company E of the 14th OVI. My great grandfather, Charles Harrison Block, served in that regiment from August 1861 (he was 16) until July of 1865.

If you see an ancestor to you that I have uploaded, please request a transfer. I am happy to do so, even if it falls outside of the Find A Grave guidelines.

I am always willing to try to help others find their ancestors as other Find A Grave members have helped me.

RE: Conrad Woodcox
Hi Art - I requested a copy of Conrad Woodcox's obituary from the Paulding County library and transcribed what was emailed to me. Thanks for your assistance!

Joseph G. Benning Sr
Wm Davis, Marietta National Cemetery
Hi Art:
Your request for a William Davis, Marietta National Cemetery Section E site 8130. Section E at the Marietta National Cemetery only has a range of sites from 5500 through 6200.
I had the administration reverify this and they were only able to locate a Wm. Davis that died October 8, 1864, Co. D, 141st NY Inf. He is located in Section A, Site 533. A picture is already posted on that page. Their Marietta National Cemetery records also show that this is the only Wm Davis that has been buried there with a death record of 1864.
