Andy, there is now a stone for Richard "Dick" Byer in the Willshire cemetery. The stone was recently placed in late fall of last year or just recently placed this year. Please submit your request again and I will add the photo for you, thanks, Deb Curry.

RE: the Hamitons and Stedhams
You are very welcome. Going back through my photos I found that I had also taken a closeup of Roy's wife's side so I've posted those to her memorial.

Could it be a daughter rather than a sister?

I see that you have done request for Oak Woods Cemetery, in Chicago. I'm requesting my family of Higley's markers to be photo. Maybe you can look at my request. I'm having a hard time, finding someone as kind as you to help me...Please let me know if you have the time. Most of the request has a location of the grave. I appreciate your spirit you have for this web-site

RE: the Polkinghorns
Hello Andy,

Thank you for your additional input on the Polkinghorn's, very nice of you to make that effort. Will be digging about here some more, as the library at which I am a volunteer just received some family memorabilia pertaining to this family. Just beginning to scrape the tip of the iceberg.

It is always nice to see someone giving veterans their due, thank you for helping to keep these fine men from falling further into obscurity. I also thank you for any effort you might provide in trying to see if Reuben's errant tombstone might someday be rectified.

In hope that it might help the person who specializes in this wonderful endeavor, during my research on Reuben I went to the length to ascertain that there was not a record of a man named Reuben R. Foster who served in the 185th New York Infantry, nor in any other regiment in that state. Beyond this there was absolutely no record of a man named Reuben R. Foster, or any name even remotely similar, to this who had a connection to Nevada County, Calif.

Reuben R. Porter was not only here, but was buried in the Grass Valley Cemetery. He was a member of Post 115 Grand Army of the Republic in Nevada City. His headstone was requisitioned by Julius M. Walling, who was the Post Commander, and was received with 14 others, and was specifically stated to have been destined to be erected in this cemetery. There is no other headstone in this cemetery for him, nor in the other 6 cemeteries in the surrounding locale.

Reuben's wife, Alice, died before his headstone arrived. His daughter, Mabel, died shortly after the headstone arrived, but had been ill with cancer for some time. This is why I believe the mistake was never caught, nobody in his family very likely ever saw this marker. I believe it was an error made at the engraving point, the handwriting was probably misread, the capital P for Porter may have been seen as an F and the lower case r as an s. Mistakes like this are frequently noticed in my research and when it came to my research on Reuben, his name was continually fouled up in some manner.

Julius M. Walling, who was the Post Commander who requisitioned Reuben's headstone, is buried in Nevada City, and on Findagrave at:

Again I thank you for whatever you might be able to do to help poor Reuben R. Porter out, he deserves better!

Have a grand evening & kudos for your great work.

You're very welcome Andy. It was really easy to find and I was out there slipping and sliding around trying to find some of my own family as well. Thank goodness for down coats and warm boots! :-)
