William Yarnell Slack was my great-great-great grandfather. I know he had a son named John, my great-great Grandfather and his son was also named John and my Grandfather was named John. I am trying to piece together some family history, specifically about my great-great grand father and whether he was a result of General Slack's first marriage or second marriage amongst other things. If anyone has the answers I am looking for it would be greatly appreciated if someone could send me an email. Thank you.

Very peaceful place, I enjoyed my visit today. However, I do believe that the sign for the cemetery on College may have been removed.

Just found out my great-granduncle Silas C. Howard of 3rd Missouri Cav. Battalion rests at the Fayettsville Confederate Cemetery. May he and his comrades rest in peace. Their service is not forgotten!

Lots of southern ancestors, many in the military. Untill I read your web site I was under the wrong asumption that the war was about slavery only. Always wondered why so many without slaves were fighting for it? Now I understand it and see the same issues in our goverment today.
Thank you for the eye opener and the priviledge of seeing this sacred place and a true history lesson.

What a wonderful web site for such a wonderful cause.

What a wonderful thought that your web site would some day honor those fallen soilders like the Vietnam Wall web site has done. Need to recruite some genealgist in your area to help document each one of these fallen sodiers.

If you haven't heard of Fold3 I would check into a membership. They now have digitally recorded all the Confederate service records. Send me an email address and I will send you an example I downloaded for a client.

Keep up the great work.

I would like to support the Southern Memorial Association. I have looked through the website and see items that I would like to purchase. Although I am now retired (47 days) I would also like to make a financial contribution. If there are specific projects that need funds then I would be happy to make my contributions to them.

Thank you,

I am the adjutant of James City Cavalry, Camp 2095, Sons of Confederate Veterans, Williamsburg, Va. We are now taking care of 4 Confederate cemeteries but none of the size you folks are caretakers. I have the deepest admiration for what the women in Arkansas have done over these years. Hopefully I will get to visit some day.
FYI, Blandford Cemetery in Petersburg, Va. has over 25,000 soldier/heroes there and Oakwood Cemetery in Richmond has about 11,000 interred there that the Va. Division is the caretakers. Neither of these are private. Blandford was founded by the women of Petersburg and brought most of the soldiers there from battelfields. Regards, K.Parsons

I noticed that the cemetery had encountered great damage from the ice storms. Are you needing assistance on the removal of the tree damage or just general lawn care?

I am thankful that such a cause is still celebrated today. I grew up in North GA just outside the Chicamauga battlefield. Union soldiers, marched through, burned our family home, and shot my great, great grandfather, leaving him to die. He never overcome the shot to the head and died as a result.

We still remain proud of our heritage, and want to see this tradition upheld in recognition of all those who fought and died for the Confederacy.
