Wanted to take a quick second and let you all know that I finally got the webpage built
and put online for the Civil War Grave Registration information. Mr. Bobby Priest, who is
a member of the SUVCW, has compiled over the years data from cemeteries throughout
Kentucky, Indiana, and Tennessee of Union Soliders and submitted them to the Sons of the
Veterans of the Civil War. He has also documented many of the Confederate Soldiers burial
locations and grave information. At present, all I have copies of are his Kentucky
records. It is through his generosity, and gracious blessing, that we have the beginnings
of these records online for anyone to access.
Bear in mind, these records only show information gleaned from work he's derived from
walking cemeteries and any possible book work to corroborate the information. So while
some may have more information than others, he's tried to be as informative as
possible. Most records have a name, burial location (with directions or approximations).
In some cases he has Unit information, enlistment/discharge information, and death date
information (where possible, birth dates may be available). From the submitted pictures
in the Breck. Co. GenWeb Archives, several of the names with in Bobby's donated
material have fortunately been ones that pictures of the headstones/markers are
Oh, and y'all bear with some of my typing errors. The past few weeks have given me a
severe case of "brain fry" with so much information.
