Hi Todd,
I have a record of his military issued headstone and it has his death as Dec 21 1873
Happy new year,

He appears in the 1890 veterans schedule for Reading City but I cannot find any burial record. He was still living there in 1920. I would love to put him to rest. His wife was Emaline. They promoted him from private to 1st Lt in one shot and then to Captain 6 mos. later. Then he was AWOL at M.O.

Hi Todd,
The death year for him is wrong as compared with his stone. I have requested a correction. I don't believe he was assigned to a company, just the battallion.

Another. He was listed as Shelby in the veterans cards. I will very likely turn up more as I am working my way through the veterans schedule of 1890.
It is a pleasure and an honor for me to do this-no thanks are required. I have visited your website for the first time today, it is you who deserves much appreciation. It's very impressive.

Just came across an old newspaper article from the Pottstown listed two Pottstown residents that served in the 88th in the Battle of Antietam. Of course, I looked them up is one that you can add to the Virtual cemetery

Benjamin F. Landell
Hey Todd - Private Benjamin F. Landell, 88th PA KIA at Antietam, is not buried in Laurel Hill Cemetery in Philadelphia. He was interred in Odd Fellows Cemetery, Philadelphia, and there is no record of him being re-interred in Laurel Hill.

I have moved his listing out of Laurel Hill Cemetery on Findagrave to reflect this.

Pvt William Finley
Todd, I am documenting all 11 Mount Carmel Cemeteries and in the Mount Carmel Cemetery, I posted a memorial to a William Finley. When I checked for a duplicate, yours popped up but there is a problem. The name's are the same but everything else is wrong. My guy was a 1st Sgt, yours is a Pvt. Please check out my memorial and see if it is the correct soldier, if it is, I will post the picture to your memorial. I am about 95% done with the Mount Carmel Cemetery and this is the only William Finley I found. If I do find a second one in the last part I have to finish, I will post that picture to your memorial. Keep up the great work you're doing. Sincerely, Robert Miller

RE: Private Charles A Roland
Re Henry Roland. Ancestry cards from WPA show Henry 1847-1911, Co. A 88th buried in Charles Evans, Sect. C Lot 40. I didn't find a Henry in Lewisburg, just a sister and parents. I wonder if he has one of those markers that is impossible to read? There seem to be quite a few in Lewisburg from that era. But none are Henry and he is not listed in cemetery records.
