Mabry, just thought I would place my input, in the hopes that descendants of sailors, both North and South, would contact you to provide details of their ancestors. I would just like to urge the descendants to freely provide information on the sailors, so that their service will not be forever lost to history, especially in the case of the Confederate States Navy, whose records on this service were mostly destroyed at the end of the war. I am sure these sailors would appreciate the interest in their service during the war, especially since the army personnel seem to get all the credit.
