Thank you for this site. I found valuable information regarding my great great grandfather (Riley Harrison Hylton and my great uncle(s), including Lorenzo Dow Hylton on this site. The 6 brothers were all Confederate soldiers fighting for states rights. Many thanks for the research and the site itself. I now know where some are buried and therefore can go and pay my respects.

Mitchel B Hylton.

My father, Raymond A. Dillon, grew up in Roanoke. Unfortunately I've never been to Roanoke, but I know I have many ancestors there: Dillon, Greer, Buckner, Harper, Gusler, Perdue, Saunders. Been working on my genealogy many years, but still not very good at it. My grandfather was Frank A. Dillon. I'd love to hear from any relatives.

MARTHA BEATTY   Colorado Springs, CO

I found the biography of Robert Marion Garrett on your website and was excited to get more information on him. I have the wedding ring he gave Martha Clay Saunders which was passed from their daughter Beulah to granddaughter Mary Clay Roby to her grandson Stanley A Moorhouse. I had always known the ring once belonged to a family member named Martha who had it over 100 years before I did, but just today found the relative who once owned the ring. Rest assured, this ring will go to Stanley and my granddaughter with the story of Robert Marion Garrett as a Civil War officer. I don't have pictures of Martha, but have copied the picture of Robert to add to the ancestry and pass to our granddaughter with the gold wedding band.

My great grandfather, William Booker Law, served in the VA 10th Cav. Was presented with the "Southern Cross of Honor" in 1914 by the Jubal Early Chapter of the DOC. If interested, I can provide addition information on William Booker. His brother, George Washington Law, also served in the VA 10th Cav.

Great site, thanks for your dedication and time.
