Louisiana Gravesites Needed
Below is the link to the Louisana Soldiers and Sailors Burial searchable database hosted by Wayne Cosby. Click on the link and input only the word 'navy' or 'marine(s)' into their search on the last entry line 'service' to get the CSN/CSMC gravesite locations and detailed information in Louisiana. In time, we will eventually have images to go with the names. If you are in a position to take close up images, regular or digital, we ask that you do so and we'll give you credit for the contribution upon receipt and posting on the CSN website.
 A red (*) asteric means we have located the grave and need an image. A green (*) one means we have an image of it.

Ben Holzman  was mayor of Shreveport from 1899 to 1902.  His administration, which ushered in the 20th century, was marked by the largest street paving and public improvements effort the city had seen up to that time.  On the crew of the CSS VIRGINIA (otherwise known as the Merrimac), Mayor Holzman's granddaughter, Kitty Carlisle Hart, achieved a national reputation as an actress and promoter of the arts.

Chalmette National Cemetery
The following are listed in this cemetery but were re-interred, we are told, to Greenwood Ceme. on Canal St. in New Orleans.
We are trying to document this information. Cypress Grove Ceme. in N.O. was also mentioned as a possibility.
William R. Minnick, CSMC----Grave #371
Milton Henshaw, CSMC-------------#414
Henry McGuire, CSMC--------------#431
Note: After personal examination by the Founder, of the Chalmette Cemetery, it appears the graves up to around number 650 (Sections 1-6) were all removed in order to build a road along the levee along the Mississippi River.
