Irvine Bulloch CSN American Civil War


Dear Sir,

I am interested in the American Civil War and believe Liverpool has ACW links.  I am trying to locate the grave of Irvine Bulloch who I believe died in Liverpool.  Can you assist me in locating the site of his grave.

Sincerely

Loran Bulloch

  1. Dear Loran,

    a few years ago I was very honoured to help in raising awareness of Irvine Stephens Bulloch, CSN and supporting, in my small way, a group of local people who eventually restored his grave in Toxteth Cemetery, Liverpool. As you probably are aware Irvine Stephens Bulloch (1842 – 1898) was an officer in the Confederate Navy and the youngest officer on the CSS Alabama. He fired its last shot before it was sunk off the coast of France at the end of the American Civil War. He was the brother of Martha Bulloch Roosevelt. Martha was the mother of future U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt and the grandmother of Eleanor Roosevelt.

    His grave was restored and I have provided a photograph. If you would like further details of the graves location in Toxteth Cemetery please let me know. I have provided a link to a web site that provides further details of the restoration.

  2. Hi Rob,

    Bob Jones here, in Seaforth.

    I have recently received a copy of a message from your web site which has a connection to Irvine Stephens Bulloch. Loran Bulloch in Virginia is asking how she can locate Irvine's grave. Should this lady require any sort of information on the Bulloch family in Liverpool I will be only to happy to be of service to her and anyone else who is so interested in this family.

    If she should visit the cemetery and go to the top of the steps by the chapel and with her back to the chapel, look to her left and there is a obelisk with an urn on the top. To the right of this is the headstone for James Dunwoody Bulloch and alongside is the sparkling white cross on Irvine's grave.

    Not far from the graves are the homes that these two men lived in with their respective wives, one of which still carries, feintly, the name ROSWELL on the gateposts, since Irvine was feeling homesick at that time.

    Please feel free to pass on my e-mail address to Loran if you should so wish. I am always happy to provide a guided tour of sites connected to the American Civil War and especially to those connected to the Bulloch family; this is all free of charge from my perspective.

    best regards,

    Bob Jones.

  3. This is a shot in the dark at best. I was hoping to contact Mr. John Hussey of the Civil War Society of Liverpool. He recently wrote an article for “North South Trader's Civil War” which is an American magazine.
    I recently recovered a Devonshire Regiment (46th of Foot) button at a Civil War battle site here in South Carolina. My guess is that the man who lost the button was an Englishman fighting in that war…probably for the South. Thank You!
