Growing up, I spent much of my summers in the Red River Valley of North Texas and South Oklahoma. My mother was born in a town called Karma, Oklahoma–a town that was washed away by one of those nasty floods the Red River used to baptize Valley residents and rearrange things. My grandparents lived in Ivanhoe, Texas (outside of Bonham). I lived in a little town called Kemp Oklahoma for two years. My mother lives there now. Last week I visited the grave of my father in the town cemetery and came upon the graves of these Civil War soldiers. I decided to post them. If the names mean anything to you, I wish you’d send me an email with the details of these soldiers or their families.(firstname.lastname@example.org) Title the email Civil War graves so I’ll know it’s not spam.
