Buried in the "Grand Army of the Republic" (GAR) section of the cemetery.
After the end of the American Civil War, veterans formed fraternal groups to continue bonds formed in the war, ultimately gaining political power. The GAR emerged as the most powerful among the various organizations, by 1890 numbering 409,489, and aligned with the Republican Party. Founded in Decatur, Illinois on April 6, 1866 by Benjamin F. Stephenson, membership was limited to honorably discharged veterans of the Union Army, Navy, Marine Corps or the Revenue Cutter Service who had served between April
12, 1861 and April 9, 1865.
