    Thank you for allowing me to be a member of the forum. I am also a member of the Northeast NC and Brownwater Navy forums. We need some new members. I live in NC, where my parents were born. On each side of my parent's families, I descended from the two Old Salems from both sides of my family.

    I was born in California between Sacramento and San Francisco, and spent most of my life there, mostly in the southern part, until I was nearly 14, so I also consider it "home".

    I am a member of the Salisbury Confederate Prison Association and have participated in two diggings.

    I was one of Mr. Howard England's "sandhogs" in the early days of diggings at Fort Taylor, Key West,
    where I was stationed.

    I just want to say that if no one has noticed yet, the sailor on the USS HUNCHBACK is reading THE PRESBYTERIAN. Has anyone noticed? Thank you. I worked with my camera a bit. Please tell me if I am wrong.

    My great great grandfather that I joined the UDC under was Charles Rothrock. He was a member of the 33rd NC, Co. I, and was wounded three times during the war. He spent time in hospitals and I have all of his records. Upon his last trip out to Fort Monroe, following his capture at Petersburg, after being wounded, he was transported on THE HERO OF JERSEY, a hospital ship. This is according to the records from the National Archives, which can be found on Fold 3. I often wondered what it was like on that ship. If it WAS an Army ship, did it have a Navy crew? There is much to tell about Grandpa Rothrock. My grandfather knew him well, until he himself was almost 30 years of age. He left me his photograph, and I first shared it on Fold 3 for other Rothrock people to remember, copy, and for all to share.

    I was always amused to see him reading a paper, but it hadn't occurred to me to try to figure out what paper it was. (My attention was always diverted to the fellow near him holding the fluffy white dog that looks just like our poor departed Buffie. I used to accuse her of time-traveling to be in the photo.)

    I wonder how much many of us do that, in our own way. The photos are so incredible, especially when we can view them in high resolution. I feel I know Buffie!
