Brunswick County Civil War & Cemeteries

I received a helpful e-mail the other day about Brunswick County but I have been out of town and have not had time to respond. I thought about summarizing the e-mail here but, it was written so eloquently, I decided to post it directly.

"Hi Kevin -

I've been looking over your blog and have subscribed to feedburner RSS feed. There are a few resources you have pointed out that I did not know about for online research. Thanks for taking the time to do that.

I noticed that William Lett lived in the Brunswick County, VA, and just wanted to mention that there are a few companion websites for the book Civil War Soldiers of Brunswick County, Virginia that you may be interested in. The first is which is run by the son and editor of the original author of the book, Dr. William M. Pritchett. I've found the book an excellent jumping off point for immediate information about the majority of residents during the early, mid, and late 19th century in Brunswick County, VA.

The second...associated site is . This site has done a wonderful job of detailing the public, church, and family owned cemeteries, many with photos and the majority with dates of birth and death.

Keep up the good work.

Keith Kirkland"

Thanks Keith! I always appreciate when readers send in new resources. I knew about the Virginians site but not specifically about the Civil War book and I have never seen that cemetery site. I am going to add the cemetery link to my main Links section, for future reference.
