Thank you for the grave photos for Pvt. John Coho. Unfortunately Findagrave does not give Rebecca Furnace as a selection for Blair County but I did add the county. Check out my virtual cemetery for other soldiers of Co.A, 54th PVI titled "Johnstown Zouaves, Company A, 54th PVI". My two great great granduncles William and Goswin Keiper served with Co.A the entire War. Checkout Capt. John Peter Suter's memorial for a wartime newspaper photo of Co.A.

|mrschirmer||William B Bailey|
I am hesitant to add biographical information to a grave listing without a paper trail. William Bailey is a very common name in Centre County, Pennsylvania. I have 5 people named William Bailey in my family tree. How did you trace the military service to the William B Bailey buried in Kansas City, KS? How do you know this particular William Bailey was in the 148th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry?

I was able to rearrange pictures. Are you a descendant of William B Bailey? He is a great-grandfather of mine. I have lineage information, but I haven't done much personal research on this branch of the family.

Thank you for your headstone photos, and the '155 Civil War fatalities' group photo. I am related to one of those men.

Thanks for the update on Walter's memorila. I'm not a relative, I'm just working on a virtual cemmetery of the 18th Pennsylvania Cavalry and Walter was a hard one to find.
If you run into other veterans fo the 18th PA Cav keep me in mind.

I'd love to meet you to walk through the cemetery. I don't wish to put my cell phone on here, but if you send me a private note to email@example.com I will give you my cell number. I work in Labor and Industry.
There is also a Medal of Honor head stone in there but for the life of me I can't remember the name now. Ah, found it, Charles C. Davis, Major with the 7th PA Calvary.

|Tony Klingensmith||RE: Humphrey Akin|
I looked over your 155 men virtual cemetery and noticed that two of them are from my 18th Pennsylvania virtual cemetery. Even noticed a Confederate in the group. Great work on this important oversight in Pennsyulvania history.
If you run into any graves of members of the 18th Pennsylvania Cavalry, keep me in mind.

I deleted one of the duplicate memorials for Humphrey Akin. Not sure how that happened, but with the close numbers, looks like I might have hit the enter button twice. Anyway, the second one you listed is gone.
Thanks for noticing this and bringing it to my attention. It's important to get this right!

|egypte||RE: Harrisburg Cemetery Civil War|
That is wonderful. I used to walk through the cemetery often, but haven't done it for awhile. The Harrisburg Cemetery is one of the prettiest in the country, too bad that don't have just a bit more labor for upkeep. I'm going to join the cleanup crew next year I think to help them out.
Are you the Explorer Scout?. or just one of the team?

I have uploaded one head stone picture for J Williams who was buried in the Harrisburg, PA cemetery. I was very excited to see this memorial posted. I had started to upload each one separately of the 155 stones (I think I have all or most of them, both new and old). If you don't mind I will add my pictures to your pages.
Thanks for this great tribute to so many brave and courageous men.

|caskona||RE: Strickler Headstone|
Yes, and that's the route I'm going to try, although I've been told the VA might refuse because he already has a stone. I have the application form and have already talked to the monument company in Huntingdon, who quoted $100 for installation. If you've been through that process and have any tips, please let me know. Thanks for the info, and have a great weekend! Christine

|caskona||RE: Strickler and Bryant|
Thanks for adding my gg-grandfather William Strickler to the 125th cemetery! I've added a memorial for James Bryant in Stonerstown Cemetery (#99610124) and posted a photo for him. I also posted a photo for William L. States (#89203764) in McConnellstown Cemetery. He was my gg-granduncle. I believe he was in Co F also, contrary to the inscription on his headstone.
No, I don't live near Huntingdon. I'm in Tennessee, but all my mother's people are from Huntingdon and Bedford counties. I made a quick trip to PA earlier this week, mainly to find Wm Strickler's grave. It had become something of a personal quest. Now I need to get him a new headstone, as the existing one is nearly illegible. Although I can't search the PA cemeteries for graves, let me know if I can help with the 125th in some other way.
Maybe we'll run into you in Gettysburg next year. We're planning to come for the 150th in July. My husband's grandfather fought there with the 2nd NY Cavalry. Best, Christine

|caskona||125th PVI soldiers|
I recently located the grave of my gg-grandfather, William R. Strickler, who served in Co F of the 125th. Would you please consider adding him to your 125th virtual cemetery? His memorial number is 99168860.
Also, regarding James Bryant of the 125th, I found a headstone for him in Stonerstown Cemetery while I was looking for some of my relatives. There's no memorial for him in that cemetery, but there's one listing him in Grandview Cemetery (#82320122). Could there be two men in the 125th with that name? The info listed on the stone I found was: James Bryant, died Sep 27 1898, aged 61ys 2ms, Co F 125th Reg PA Vol. Please let me know if you'd like me to add a new memorial in Stonerstown. I can also email you a photo of the stone if that would help.
Thanks for all the work you've done on the 125th! And I love your Wikipedia page about the 150th anniversary at Antietam. I was there for it too! Regards, Christine

Apparently the tombstone has been straightened. I have no memory of it leaning forward when I was at the cemetery and took the photo - and it appears to be upright in the photo I took. Good news!
