Joyce's Search Tip - December 2007 -
Do You Know that you can search just the 860 pages of Chemung County Cemetery Records on the site by using the Cemeteries -Chemung button in the Partitioned search engine at the bottom of the Current What's New Page? If you use that partition follow these steps to search just one cemetery
1. Choose Cemeteries - Chemung
2. Enter part of the cemetery name [ie Comfort or Carr] AND a surname.
3. Choose the Find ALL Words option. Then it will find just the pages with that surname in the one cemetery you indicated. 
Tom Flynn Walker of Pine City obtained this listing from the Chemung County Historical Society and retyped it for the web page. Joyce M. Tice formatted it for presentation online.

Joyce, in addition to my gggrandfather JJ (John James) Johnson , grave  #2210 WNC , mislabeled as d. 12/16/64 , SC G,55th(should be : d.
16Feb1865, SC I, 25th)
Re: George Farr email 14Mar2005, I see two other  errors in your online Elmira burials. Richburg, R. D. should be Richburg, B. D., and there was no Tobias, John S. in I, 25th SC. It is probably either  Tobias, J. W. or Tobias, J. Henry, both of whom were in I, 25th SC and captured and sent to Elmira. I am related to both  Richburg and Tobias. Memoirs of the War of Secession by Brig Gen  Johnson Hagood CSA has complete roster of Hagood's Brigade. Both The  21st and 25th Regiments were captured in total on the evening of 15Jan1865 at Fort Fisher, Wilmington, NC. and sent to Elmira.
Is there a roster of Elmira prisoners who survived and were sent back home at the end of the war? Based on my research thus far, I believe my ggrandfather's two brothers Johnson, Daniel and Johnson, FM(Francis Marion) were also in Elmira and survived as well as Anderson, William who later married my gggrandfather's widow. I go to NH every year to beat the heat down here in the low country (Pawleys Island SC) and would like to stop off in Elmira to look at such records -if they  exist. Also, if my gggrandfather's marker is in fact mislabeled, who do  I contact to get it corrected?
yours truly, Virgil A. Johnson

Hi there....I wanted to email you and let you know that on your death listings for the prison camp the entry above should be William LUFFMAN 11/29/64 from NC.  He was my 4 g g-pa and I knew he died there in the prison camp, but didn't have the date.  Thanks for all the folks that may have participated in the project to create this website.  It's wonderful!
