This Old Scarecrow
Pvt. Daniel A. Fulmer (#67091661)
Greetings James,
I was curious if you would consider letting me have this memorial to my great grandfather.
I have an extensive Fulmer family tree I've compiled since 1999, and I'm anxious to expand his biography, and add several new images.
I'm currently researching his parents George, and Elizabeth from the Millgrove area as well.
Your information is correct, and I commend you for it's accuracy.
Let me know how you feel about this.
By the way, I'm also writing a history of Yukon, the Magee Mine, Westmoreland Coal Co., and it's cultural, and economic effects during the Industrial Revolution, etc..
Interlaced with Fulmer family history where applicable, as the Fulmer's seemed (at least from a Fulmer perspective) to be the common species (that's me being humorous).
I'm originally from Northern Virginia (Falls Church, and Prince William County), and have had the unique pleasure of living in an area where I could visit and explore all of the major battlefields, including Gettysburg, and Sharpsburg.
I lived within walking distance of the Confederate batteries along the Potomac; Freestone Point, Possum Point, and Evansport (Quantico), and frequented that area extensively.
My next door neighbor in Falls Church was the noted Civil War author William Albaugh, as a child he gave freely of his time, and taught me an appreciation of local history, and the war between the states.
Thanks for your time, and consideration.

Hello there. Thank you for the information. I added the information and hope that I added to the correct areas. If you would take a kind moment to as proof read what I copied and pasted from your message I would be much obliged. I also gave you credit as for providing the information as well. The "Ind" abbreviation does it stand for a state? If so I can add in parenthesis the name of the state so that those that are reading will know what it means. Let me know if I can add anything else or if the information you provided belongs else where. Thank you for all that you do and Sounds fantastic what you guys do in regards to reenactments. I've watched a few and they are very fascinating to me. Cheers my fellow graver! :)

Thank you re Greensburg Old German Cemetery
Thank you for the information, Mr. Sims. Yes, how sad that the cemetery was treated this way! I hope that someday the records will eventually turn up after all. In the meantime, thank you for all your efforts to document the resting places of the people interred there!

Civil War Soldier Sgt. Charles A. Herwick
Hello, Mr. Sims. I am researching soldiers of the 11th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry who later enlisted with the 4th Pennsylvania Cavalry. Among them is Sgt. Charles A. Herwick, whose memorial you maintain. I understand that Sgt. Herwick's date of death is unknown, but do you have any information about the date of his burial in Greensburg's Old German Cemetery? If not, do you have any suggestions on sources I might check for further information? (Based on a baptismal record I found on-line, I believe Sgt. Herwick may be the son of Sarah S. Herwick, Find A Grave Memorial# 33065899, who is also buried in the Old German Cemetery.) Thank you for any information you can provide.

RE: William Cochenour
Hi James,
The William Cochenour in Co. H 15th Reg. PA Calvary is in my family tree. He was born 3 Nov 1840 & died 27 June 1929. He is buried in West Newton Cemetery. I know nothing about the other William Cochenour. It does seem likely that they are the same person.

The grave is a government provided stone, in good condition, located on the North edge of the East (Original) Cemetery in Grand Junction. The grave is located approximately at the half way point between the front and back (West-East)of the cemetery, along the wire boundary fence. The cemetery itself is located near the SE corner of County Road 388 and 53rd St. If you wish, I will try to provide a photograph in the future. Tom

If I sent you what is legible on the stones do you think you can piece together who they are? Kathi

Correct photo posted.

Plus an overall photo of other graves. We have about 5,000 flags to place every year. The Scouts help us put all of the flags on the graves. The sad part is they come off after Flag Day.

The photo is wrong and I have deleted it.

I will be there on Thursday and will look for his stone.

You might want to move your memorial you have in Union Cemetery "New Kensington" PA over to Union Cemetery "Arnold, PA". There is no Union Cemetery in NK. The two towns adjoin and the Cemetery's mailing address is NK, that is why individuals often get the two towns confused and why it is often listed as New Kensington in obits. But the cemetery is in Arnold and they have put burials online here at find-a-grave
