I have a list in one of the genealogy folders on my computer.

It contains the names and burial locations of some of my relatives whose graves are unmarked.

That list bothers me. I'm doing my best to get rid of all the names on it.


Two of the names fell off the list today.

Nathaniel C Callaway - my g-g-g-grandfather, and Levi A Callaway, his cousin.

They are buried in Confederate Soldiers Rest in Elmwood Cemetery in Memphis.

My Callaway cousin, Joe, went with me to deliver the stones and watch them being set.

Todd Fox, the cemetery superintendent who set the stones for us, gave me the tops of the 125 year-old numbered concrete markers from the graves. Nathaniel's was 102, Levi's 140.


Two down - four to go.

Unless I find more...

I have "the book" written by John W Cothern called Confederates of Elmwood, and am happy to do look-ups for anyone. Just leave a comment to this entry or this one, and I will reply.
