RE: Moses J. Beaudry
Hello, again-

I don't "do" Facebook- do you know Bruce DeLarm & his genealogical work? I corresponded with him some time back & can send him a note asking him to forward you my contact info.

Moses J. Beaudry
Hi-

I'm not a Beaudry descendant. To make a long story short (as possible) I'm a retired historian, and a member of the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War, successor group to the G.A.R.

One of my many interests hass been the 62nd New York Infantry "Anderson Zouaves" with which Moses served.

In addition, as a SUVCW member, and only one of two in Essex County, NY, I've taken it upon myself as a volunteer effort to make sure, as my time & budget will allow, that the graves of area Civil War Veterans are identified, listed in the SUVCW Graves Database, and properly marked.

Hence my interest in the locatin of Moses' grave.

The 1900 Census for Salisbury Town, Addison Co, VT lists Moses' widow Lucy age 66, living with her son-in-law Frank C. Dyer, Merchant, and wife Jessie (Beaudry) Dyer. Both Dyers ARE buried in the West Salisbury Cemetery - but, as I said, I've had no luck -so far- finding Moses' or Lucy's gravesite. But I'll keep poking around & see what turns up. Salisbury is only about 40 minutes away.

Would give my direct e-mail, but don'wish to post it in a public forum, for obvious reasons.

Best regards,

Greg

RE: Moses J Beaudry
Hi, Ms. Palmer & thanks for your note. I would not be surprised if Moses WAS buried in Vermont. When he applied for his pension for service in the 62nd NY Infantry in 1880, he was living in Pittsford, Rutland Co. VT, and following his death, his wife Lucy was living in West Salisbuty, Addison Co, VT in Oct 1898 & applied for a widow's pension.

The Salisbuty VT Town Clerk's records fom 1898 record Moses' death in Brattleboro.

However, thus gfar I have been unable to locate his grane in any of the Salisbury or Pittsford or Brattleboro cemeteries.

So its an ongoing mystery & project.

His Brother Charles Aaron of the 5th NY Cavalry is buried in New Rochelle, NY & his brother Louis Napoleon, also of the 5th Cav., in Chicago, IL.

Best regards-
