At least 2 emblems on headstone. They are very faint. One is a Masonic Emblem and one is GAR (which is Grand Army of the Republic). FindAGrave member Mike Appleby contributed the information between the lines. Some of it I will put in the proper spaces and some that doesn't readily fit, I will just leave here between the lines.
