|For April 2002 we dedicate the site to our Civil War ancestors. You may register yourself as a descendant following the directions below.|
|To qualify as a Civil War Ancestor, the person must have served
in the military in the Civil War, on either side, as soldier or nurse,
even though nurse did not have official military status. We particularly
hope to hear from those whose confederate ancestors are buried at Woodlawn
National Cemetery in Elmira. The person should be in some way connected
to this area, either having lived here or buried here. Please submit
to Joyce M. Tice, your path from you to the Civil War ancestor in the format
below. Only entries following this pattern will be added to this page.
Use birth names only, not married names, except for yourself. If you use
a married alias, submit your name with both your real and married name
(Example Jane SMITH Jones). Dates are not included except on the final
link to the generation who served in the Civil War. Just email me the path
with commas separating the names in your email, no numbers, just
plain and simple so I don't have to edit more than necessary.. Use normal
capitalization - No all cap or all lower case entries can be used as it
will take my time to edit them. Please spell correctly, particularly Cemetery.
Your name will be linked to your email address so that others on similar
lines can contact you. If you have more than one Civil War link, submit
each, from you to the generation of the Civil War - as illustrated. Submissions
that do not follow this pattern, so that they can easily be added to the
page, will be returned for modifications. If you do not have a known Civil
War ancestor to include - keep looking and good luck. Maybe next year you'll
have one. PLEASE put Civil War Ancestor in your subject line to
help me sort my email and not miss yours. I do not have a known Civil War
ancestor - yet - so had to "cheat" just a bit to give you a format
example. You may include Regiment and place of origin IF you keep it BRIEF.
Before submitting your email please review the directions and the example and be certain you have followed it exactly. I want to be able to just copy and paste and not have to edit. Thanks for being accurate the first time.

|Your Name HERE||Your Civil War Ancestor, wherever he lands|
Please note that records at Woodlawn National Cemetery show a J. A. Dry buried in lot 1995. His marker shows Co. H, NC 8th Regiment. All of this and other records match the Civil War Records of one Tobias Augustus Dry from Cabarrus County, NC.
While in Elmira in 1993, I found copies of original hand written records, one showing the cause of death, that clearly show how a T could be misread as a J. Evidently someone else has proven this to be true. I visited Elmira on May 21, 2003 and to my astonishment, the marker has been replaced. The new stone reads T. A. Dry (I can send you a picture). The caretaker could not tell me how the change came about. The record at the cemetery still shows J.A. Dry.
