Private John Mark Brown
Served with Co.D 122nd Illinois Vol. Inf. During the Civil War of 1861-65. He enlisted on Sept. 18th 1864 (His 17th Birthday) And was discharged on July 22nd 1865. I have found little about when or where he came to Nevada or what he did afterwards. In fact all I could find was a small Obit placed in the local papper (Nevada Appeal Jan. 6th 1919) by the the Local GAR Post No. 10 in Carson City that announces his death and asks all members to attend their comrades funeral. He Died at age 73 of the Spanish Flu during the graet epidemic of 1918-19 The Death Citf. listed his occupation as laborer. He was buried with full Military honors in the GAR Section of the Lone Mountain Cemetery in Carson City NV. The Attached photo of John is from the GAR Post Records. (Thanks Bud. K.) The photo of his grave was taken in Sept. 2001.
BTW This James M Brown is not the Jacob M Brown also buried in this cemetery. They are a few regiments apart, Or as my daddy used to say "Close but no cigar."
