Stone-setting ceremony

Saturday, March 24, 2012

Relatives of Civil War Confederate and Union soldier Hicks Roy and Civil War re-enactors gathered in Lance Cemetery in Couch on March 18 for a stone-setting ceremony. Pictured, left to right, are Skyla, Clintan, Marva and Shann Caldwell, Sue Walters and her husband, Mike Walters (kneeling), Joe Dan Caldwell, Tilman Durham (holding his grandfather's Civil War gun), Jay Cross, Tony Brewer, Lou Wehmer and Bob Langston. The re-enactors are from the Sons of the Conferate Army Post 203 of West Plains. Langston, 91, is the oldest member of the post.

Am curious about the Tilman Bratcher in the photo. My husband is a Bratcher from the family line of Amos Jonathan and Malissa (Ratliff) Bratcher from Smithville, Lawrence County, Arkansas. Feel free to contact me if you would like to discuss genealogy. denise.bratcher63@gmail.com
