|Janice Hollandsworth||RE: Maxey|
The date is off by one day from the date that is in the POW records. I suppose it could be him. It wouldn't be the first time that the tombstone of a Civil War vet had a misspelling or a bad initial. E P sounds a lot like B. Accents played a big role in the records.
I checked at the Civil War Soldiers and Sailors website and they have no soldier in the 110th with the surname Maxey, that has a first name that starts with B.

I have decided to transfer this record to you and let you add your information. Please make a notation that it is a possibility based on regimental records and what we have found here.
Also please do not change the listing as that is how he is listed at the Veteran's Administration website.
|Janice Hollandsworth||RE: Maxey|
That information came from the interment card at Ancestry.com. I also confirmed it just now with the written register that was kept. I have placed a photo of the registry where his name appears on the memorial for you to look at.
|Leigh ann ||RE: Gordon Wade|
Did you notice that his last name was actually WaKe not WaDe
|Karen Hedrick||RE: Henry L Davis - mem #56915995|
Thank you for confirming!
|Karen Hedrick||Henry L Davis - mem #56915995|
In Henry's will, it says he passed away on or about the 28th of Dec 1869. Did you mean to put 28, or do you know it was the 23rd? The tombstone is kind of buried and it looks like it could be an 8 or a 3. Thanks,

Jerry, They are all buried in South Lawn, all in a row. Ancestry has the Tucson Daily Citizen online (Pre-1978 only), mine has expired.
Beside James and Beulah Hall, I also found Mary C. Hall (1918-1999), James B. Hall (1819-1975) and John W. Hall (1946-1962). I have photos, if you want to add the memorials. Just let me know when I can add the photos.
|Pauline Hill||RE: Didame Tabitha Williams Jones|
You're very welcome, on both accounts.
Gerald, I would put in another request for his gravestone picture.

Do you know his plot location in North Madison Cemetery? My guess is that there is no gravestone. The Lake County Genealogical Society does not have him listed in their survey of North Madison Cemetery. Don't know why your request for a gravestone photo was removed. I did not claim your request. I was on his memorial page and selected the post photo button to post the obit. There is a gravestone next Harta Burdick's gravestone that is so weather worn that it is impossible to read and it does have a Civil War (GAR) flag holder by it. It looks to old to be from 1937 though but it may be Lorenzo's??????
