Finding section G
Hi. How do I locate section G in Fairview Cemetery in Altoona? There don't seem to be any maps online. Are there markers that I didn't notice? Thanks!

That is the pic of the correct stone, the date matches the burial card. It is just that the name is unreadable. Change your date to what is on his veteran burial card. Chalk would have cleared this up quickly.

Thank you for the photo and the update! That explains why earlier photographers could not locate it. :D

Veterans listing from HCHS
Say, going through the listing we found at HCHS last summer. Creating spreadsheet with updated info, but when I can I am transferring Civil War veterans to you as I go through the listing - so look for many transfers coming your way. When I complete, I'll send you updated spreadsheet as it does differ from what we have but you will have Find A Grave # listed for individuals. Unfortunately, there are some memorials I can't find. At the end of this exercise we could create a Find A Grave memorial entry with notation that we don't know where burial is. We can talk more later.

You have a photo request for the old Salisbury National Cemetery. Few Civil War burials have monuments. Most were buried in Mass Graves, of which there are several and no one really know who is buried in them.
There is no way to fulfill this request. All known monuments from this part of the cemetery have been photographed.

Samuel Dell FaG# 6885857
My 1st cousin, 4th removed, served in Civil War.

Jun 1863- 1 Feb 1864, from Union Twp, Huntingdon, PA, USA.

Civil War - Enlisted in Company A, 22nd Regiment Pennsylvania Cavalry, serving until February 1, 1864, when he was honorably discharged, Cav. and G.A.R.

His stone is not a Civil War monument, but a family stone.

Message me your email address so I can send my finds to you directly. I will be starting on that listing we found at HCHS in November.

Thanks

I updated the bio with the military information. I believe John S. McCoy, who is buried next to him is his brother. It appears they both fought at Antietam.

It would be much easier to communicate via email. I hate going through the boards and closed my because people keep requesting changes through the boards.

McConnellstown Cemetery. The memorials were created from a physical inventory done by Debbie Fisher Riley. She is excellent and I can rely on her accuracy 99.9% of the time. I respect the quality of her work.

Her database is located at http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~pahuntin/cemeteryrecords.htm It is broken into 6 files. I quickly glanced through the files and found him in file number 6. I am enclosing those buried in the same row as him. This shows that he has a physical stone that was recorded by Debbie Fisher Riley.

The question was about a duplication. Without additional research I cannot determine if your research would be a duplication. I would say that the if the individual you are trying to ad does not have a headstone, he would not be on Debbie's list.

Capt. William H Simpson
Donald,
Thanks for adding the photo and providing the bio info for Capt. William H. Simpson. He would be the cousin of my ancestor Eleazer Simpson (1846-1926. I was at Norwood Cemetery in July taking pix of anyone I thought might be distantly related & needed a pix for find a grave. If you know anyone that might be buried in nearby Little York cemetery wait a while so I can go thru my over 700 pix from yesterday & add them as well.

You are welcome Donald. The true location of the grave is Section 22, Row E, Plot 16. I've already submitted an edit to Find A Grave. He was in the index as T.S.Jones - that's why I didn't find him earlier.

RE: Photo of Thomas Blake
You are very welcome. We are trying to document all Civil War veterans buried in Iowa. I presume that you know about the SUVCW National Graves Registry. My husband adds all the names we find to that. The Iowa genweb is a great source for gravestone photos if you don't find them on Find A Grave. Feel free to use any of our photos.
