Possible Southern Cousins

A visit to the Camp Chase Cemetery in Columbus, Ohio, as been on my to-do list for a while.  I just attended the Ohio Genealogical Conference and the venue was only a few miles from the cemetery so I was able to visit.

Visiting Civil War cemeteries is always a somber experience for me.  Having relatives that fought on both sides (I have not yet found any that were in direct conflict with each other) is sometimes difficult to comprehend.

I found some surnames of my southern lines (my maternal and my brother's paternal) and photographed those stones. Perhaps I will make a cousin connection to one of those soldiers in the future.
