Paula,
Just noticed your Ancestry.com posting of May 2005 on Fauth of Portsmouth, VA. Appreciated your info on an earlier (Lucy Carter) marriage. The BF who was husband of Margaret Carr was a grocer, and son of a BF. The son (subj of my research) served as an officer in the Portsmouth Light Artillery and, 1863-'64, the signal service, Confederate army. While serving as signal officer on a blockade runner, he was killed by a shell (or, according to another account, badly wounded) dying from the effect in 1864. He is buried by his presumed father in historic Cedar Grove cemetery, Portsmouth, plot 3 148. Can't answer your 2005 question, but have a few crumbs if interested. (Away 23-27 Jul 09.)

Thank you so much for your reply and all the military information on Bernard Fauth. I too am heading out on holidays but will be back Aug.5. Could you please contact me after that date at paula.carr@shaw.ca
I'm still mystified as to how Margaret got to be in that part of the USA when all her family were in Nova Scotia. I'd like to find the marriage record to see if witnesses might be other family members. Looking forward to exchanging information with you.
