Debra Dont ever give up it took me 10 years to find my 3rd grandfather's death date and place We still dont know where they buried him but he died of disease at the end of the Civil War so we erected a memorial ordered by me and donated by the VA to him in Mar 2008 in a cemetery where his mother was a founding charter member and 2 of his sons and one sister are for sure buried We think another sister and his mother are also there unmarked.
