Capt. Crow, Pam, thanks for the welcomes! Again, I look forward to beginning online discussions and "exploration" here of the Civil War/19th century period and learning what I can about online family history resources.

A prime focus for now is finding out more regarding the wartime communities of the Stafford Courthouse area; Union occupation and encampments, maps and descriptions of the changes in Stafford resulting from the War, and very specifically the area encompassing what is called "Jumping Branch Road" - the location of my great-great-grandfather's still-standing farm house and family cemetery.
