RE: Alden Cunningham
Hi Helen,

Most, if not all, states had their own special buttons on the uniforms of their soldiers they sent to the war. That's how men who were not known by name at least were able to be categorized by which state they fought under during the Civil War.

Hope this helps,

Hi Helen,

Yes. Within each state plot, there are known and unknown soldiers buried. When known, their name, company, and regiment are engraved on the stones. If the stone is marked "Unknown," the burial is not identified, but the state he was from is known. There were 979 soldiers buried in the National Cemetery in 1863 that were unidentified by name, nor was their state known. These bodies were placed in the "Unknown" sections. Their graves are marked only with small granite stones with a number on it.

RE: Cord Stahl
Hi Helen, No, No relationship to Cord. I live out that way and was talking pictures for people on find a grave and took some extras while there Mine could could see a bit better so I posted it. You might want to contact or go to this site and see if you can find out more info regarding this CORD.

I had a man from here contact me once a few months ago about a relative he saw that I had on who happened to be buried at their local pioneer cemetery. I had not know this relative to have ever been out west. I mean the man in question was born in 1840 in VT!! Seems as tho he did and even served in the Civil War in CA for two months.. Found the name of his commanding officer as well as a record of his two months of service. He even built the old building which later became the City Hall of Livermore but when he built it it was the Bank of Livermore. He died in 1890 however and his wife and son(son born in Livermore0 moved back to NY to live out their lives. Too cool. and who knew/ Wish my mom was still with me so I could tell her. She always go so excited with news like this!! LOL :) (AS do I I might add LOL) Good luck. I am sure there could be a relation here. Check it out and let me know if you find one to CA.... Barb :)
