|Bio and Links|
Originally from South Jersey, I currently live in Columbus, Ohio, where I work as a geologist. My current interests are researching the histories of the McDonald, Strumpfer, Weinhardt, Diddlebock, and Eppright families of the Philadelphia, PA area. I am also interested in the Civil War, Gettysburg, and the 71st Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry (The California Regiment).|
If you have any suggestions for corrections or would like a memorial transfered to you within the Find a Grave guidelines, please send the request through the SAC.

Yes, I believe you are correct. This is the same William H Corkhill who was a chaplain in the 71st Pennsylvania Infantry. I have updated his memorial.
Thanks for the info, Dave

Amalia is the daughter of John and Mary. She married Henry W. Roth and died in childbirth in 1887. Please see Amalia Roth's grave on Findagrave. She also has a separate stone stating "Amalia". Her child was a daughter.
