Jerry McKelvy is making this terrific offer about maps and land descriptions:
Are you confused by the term township, or do you have a land description from a land patent or deed and are wondering in what part of Nevada County the land was located? I have over 25 years experience working with maps and land descriptions. I will be willing to help answer any questions you might have about townships and their locations, or help you pinpoint a location from a land description. Jerry

CONFEDERATE SOLDIERS: I have acquired a book titled "Confederate Dead" Rock Island Illinois, compiled in the Office of the Commissioner for Marking Graves of the Dead, War Department, 1912. There is no further information of publisher, etc. It is typewritten and some information is beginning to fade. It lists Name, Rank, Company, Regiment, Date of Death, Number and Locality of Grave ( Most state "Confederate Cemetery"). I will be happy to do lookups for anyone sending their confederate ancestors name. Please bear with me as I do have limited time, but I will get to everyone. Thanks, Doris Lindblad
