I don't know Rachel's maiden name, but this info and/or the names of her parents would most likely have been included on her death certificate, especially since her husband, Louis, was still alive to provide it. The official West Point burial roster could also prove helpful in your search. If you haven't already done so, you may want to contact the West Point Cemetery Administrator, Kathleen Silvia, at 845-938-2504. So wish I could be more helpful!

Best regards,

Thank you for the info on your distinguished great great-grandfather. I've corrected/updated the entry I made for him, which I'd submitted to Find-a-Grave for "Famous" consideration more than 2 years ago, after learning about his life from the "Taps Project". I wasn't aware that some sources listed his surname as "Bentz", or that someone had made a later Find-a-Grave memorial for him under that name until today.
