RE: Pvt Joseph Scheidy
I have removed the memorial to which you refer as it was a duplicate of 83995671. I added the Bates info to the correct memorial which has a tombstone photo and uses a different spelling variation.

New data for your postings of Co. E 105th Pa
Hi James, I want to let you know i have added numerous images to many of the soldiers of the 105th etc. Each should give you a year of death, many give place of death and burial info. If you need any to be removed just let me know. The research was good practice and i get to help a fellow find a graver. I will stop for now, let me know if i can do further searching for you.

If you look at the memorial you can see what it says. It also has a dates and a place of burial, while yours has neither of those. Burials unknowns are supposed to be temporary.

You don't know they are the same, but you clearly do not have enough information to show that they are not.

Regarding Sgt. Joshua Fulmer #63570789.
I'm posting on his memorial his Certificate of Death (#130610).
You can copy and download for your records if you like.
Then, if you want me to (at your request); I can leave it up there, or I can delete it - either way.
Just wanted you to see it.
I'm 97% certain he is the younger brother of Daniel A. Fulmer #67091661, one of your original memorials you gifted to me.

James G. Byerly #25399737
Hi James,
I have inadvertently duplicated your memorial to James Byerly with my #114517100. He is my 2nd great grandfather so I have some additional info in mine. I would be glad to take over management of this and combine the two, or let you continue to manage it if you prefer. I realize you are working on our Civil War history and appreciate your contributions. Please let me know how you would like to proceed. Best regards!

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.

Grave Location
Dear James, The grave of Sgt. James H. Taylor, 105th Pennsylvania, Co.E is located in the public cemetery in Grand Junction, Michigan, Columbia Township, Van Buren County. 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

Hi Jim I remember you telling me you were related to the McGrews in West Newton, in Sewickley Township by the Municipal building is Mars Hill Cemetery and across the road going towards the train shop on the right hand side is a little cemetery with only 23 stones left the majority of them are McGrews the cemetery is not on find agrave and the workers in the municpal building told me the name of the cemetery is Old Quaker but I cant find a record of it any where. 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.


Added by DUVCW on Jun 07, 2012 8:25 PM

The photo is wrong and I have deleted it.

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