RE: Holmgrens
Although I have many relatives at Sunset, I am not related to any Holmgrens. Am simply documenting the cemetery for others who do not know where kin is buried. Feel free to SAC, add pic's or request a transfer. Please use the Edit tabs for any of that.

RE: Civil War
He was my GGrandfather. Are you related? If so, how?

RE: Civil War
Michigan is the only state that has records on line that can be searched. Otherwise it is a "crap shoot"

Best advise is to Google the unit he served in and see what you come up with. Sometimes other states do have some records on line. Other wise you have to send for his service records-it is only a $25.00 fee.

Sorry I could not help you more.

RE: Help?
Samuel, I am not familiar with Edward Conant. How did you tie me to him?

Creech pension file
Well, as I said, I only got 10 pages which is what NARA sent in 1988. How big his file is depends on what year he first filed and how many affidavits there are. Files don't normally contain a lot of info on battles, etc., because the soldier is trying to prove his health claim for the pension so affidavits usually consist of his stories and those of men knowledgeable about when and where he became ill or injured, plus doctors' affidavits in some cases and some times pension board interviews. Not all files contain all of these, however. You just have to take a chance whenever you order a file, you never know what's there - some times good, some times not so much. If you are interested in your ancestor, though, I think they are always a good investment for documentation at least.

William T. Creech Civil War
You can send to the National Archives for his pension file. They have a form at (or at least that used to be the link) and I think the files cost $85 now. His numbers are: application #619310; certificate 387724. I got his file in April 1988 but they only sent ten pages then. Now they send the complete file but if it's over 100 pages, it costs more than $85.

Creech memorials
Click on their names and it will tell you the name of the manager and the date the memorial was listed. In many cases we don't have the details, or the info, to list or link everyone. For instance I have Drilla May Pennington d.5 Feb 1944 Los Angeles and Walter Lee Pennington died 4 Oct 1946 Los Angeles, but no knowledge of cemetery. If you have that, please list them on Find A Grave and link them. That would be a great help.
