|Kari Olson||RE: Wm Stowell|
I worry about these old markers, in a few years they wont be there any longer, so I love taking photos of the old ones.
Also , our men in service, women too, should all be remembered.

You are very welcome. These guys have earned the small effort it takes to memorialize them.

I went to Wautoma Union cemetery (two separate trips -- ran out of H2O) and spent about 30 minutes cleaning off three sides of the tall white monument where Andrew Edgerton (father) is buried and sons Wm J and S.R. (Stafford) are remembered.
According to the stones, William died and is buried at Corinth. Stafford was killed and is buried at Savannah, GA.
Another brother, Eugene, and his wife, Flora are buried on a second stone nearby. P.J. (Jane) Edgerton, wife of Andrew and mother to Stafford, William, Eugene and George, has not been located. They all were in New York in 1850 but must have moved to Wisconsin in the early 1850s (before 1858 when Andrew died). Eugene and Flora moved to Minnesota before 1880.
I added a better picture for William that can actually be read, for the most part. I updated information on the memorials and on the caption of the wide shot of the Edgerton stones.
I don't know how much this information helps. If you ever find definitive information on the location of William and Stafford, let me know. I will add it to their memorials.
If you need anything else, just holler. Good luck!

I would be more than happy to do this for you. I'll let you know what I find out.
By the way, I am related to Pvt. George Drake, Find A Grave # 16005554, the first Wisconsin soldier killed in the Civil War. My great grandmother was his 1st cousin and lived with his mother, Jane Carr Drake, after moving to Wisconsin.

|Janet Marie||RE: Wm J Edgerton|
I believe that this might just be a memorial for Wm Edgerton -- not an actual internment based on the inscription on the stone. I still have the original photos I took, but they are difficult to read. My guess is that I just copied down what was on the stone and then typed on his Find A Grave memorial.
I would be more than happy to go back to the cemetery to see if I can clean off the stone and get a better picture. I go near there frequently and could probably go there on Friday if you think it would help. Just let me know.

|Ann Kunkle-Jones||Info on Gasherie Decker (3rd Battery Wis)|
I am doing research on Gasherie Decker - I found his letters and diary at the Wisconsin Historical Archives and have been transcribing them. Gasherie was one of the soldiers who escaped from being a prisoner and was eventually recaptured and sent to Andersonville and he died there. His final diary has entries written while he was on his escape. It is really interesting to read.
Thanks for posting his gravestone so that I can see it.

William Plackett's memorial didn't have a contributor linked to it. So I have written to the findagrave office to see if they can transfer the record to me, as I do have additional information that I can enter for him. Yes, what the soldier's on both sides of our civil war had to endure is more than any of us will ever fully understand. I feel much sympathy for countries who are now experiencing civil war.

Happy to have helped out, and your welcome! Taking photos of Esau's grave brought back memories of when I found my maternal 3rd great grandfather and his brother's graves up in Appleton, WI. Both served in the Civil War. Have a great day!
