|Birth: ||1850, Northern Ireland|
There is not much known about Graydon, buried at Yarragon, but he was confused, by a so-called "researcher" in Loganholme, Queensland, with another person of a similar name, Graden, who had served in a Missouri Artillery unit, during the American Civil War. This "researcher" without consulting the descendants of the person buried in Yarragon, applied for a Veterans Administration (in Washington, D.C.) gravestone, and had it installed at the grave. Eventually it was proven that the Missouri soldier actually lived and died in Missouri, and is buried there, with his gravestone in the Missouri Cemetery actually showing his service in the Artillery. When the descendants found out about this travesty, they wanted the false marker removed, but the "researcher" then blamed the Cemetery officials for allowing the marker to be installed. The VA gravestone remains at the grave to this day, a monument to incompetent research.
