Follow Friday - Week of July 26, 2013

Here are a few of my favorite finds for the past week:
  • Andrea Chaffin of the Wilmington News Journal asks if the Sugar Grove Cemetery in Clinton County, Ohio can sell its Civil War cannons. My 2x great-grandmother's brother Dan Matson is mentioned as the 85 year old Civil War veteran who was present when the monument was dedicated in 1927.
  • Grave Addiction has a large set of cemetery photos.
  • Pat Haley tells the strange and sad story of Eugene: The stone man with the golden smile in the Wilmington News Journal of Clinton County, Ohio.
  • Tourists are behaving badly around black bears in the Smoky Mountain's Cades Cove.
  • The Civil War Index offers links to many sources of information on soldiers, regiments, and battles. Ohio rosters are here.
  • GenealogyInsider has articles on NARA's new Online Public Access Search and links to Civil War resources.
  • Before My Time posts about a treasured brass tag that was lost and unexpectedly replaced by a new friend.
  • Climbing My Family Tree has a beautiful photo of a 1925 bride.
