Jogn Griscom stone
Hi, I filled your request for a picture of John Griscom's stone. This stone was totally unreadable, but its location surrounded by other Griscoms gave me assurance this was him. If we find this was not so I will be happy to remove it.

USS Chenango 1864
I am trying to locate the graves of members of the USS Chenango through Apr 1864 - the great boiler explosion. I have noticed that some of the Seamen Weir, Wilson, and Fireman Bone were originally buried in the Hospital Burying Ground - but do not show up in roster for Cypress Hills. 1st Ast Engr Cahill was removed to Baltimore, and Actg 2nd Engr Root was first listed for Greenwood, and later Evergreen in NJ - but he appears in CT's burial list. I have located gravesite's 2nd Ast Engr Murray and Actg 3rd Ast Engr White. Sailors Macomby and Mitchell were supposedly taken by family for burial elsewhere.

Have you been able to identify the burial locations of other crew members?

I have set up a virtual cemetery for the crew. We can discuss.

Richard Bacot #72956169
I'm wondering if you could tell me what the CSS Chicora and Palmetto have to do with Lt. Bacot. While the photo caption provides a nice history lesson on ironclads, I can't see how this is relevant to Lt. Bacot's memorial. I had one more photo to add but there isn't room. The guidelines for photos on a memorial is that we should add photos of the person, family portraits and certain documents are acceptable. Not sure a photo and article about the type of ship he served on would be included in that list. And the other "photo" of the CSS Arkansas, although does not fit in any category suggested by the FAQs, is at least the ship he purportedly served on.

This man did not serve in the US Navy, but in the US Army.

He served as an enlisted soldier from August 1840 until October 1847, and as an officer May 1861 until December 1870.
