Ebbon Cemetery - Ussery photo
I feel that my previous message was a bit curt. It was not my intention to be rude but it was late, I was tired and my ability to compose anything meaningful was compromised. I meant no offense.

That said, I have much more information to add to his memorial including the epitaph, the notice of his death published in the Lockhart Post Register in 1918 and his listing as published in the Casualty List published in the same paper.

He trained under Maj. Gen. Leaonard Wood and was one of the first to die in the Influenza Pandemic. When his was sent home, he arrived with a letter from the Maj. Gen. stating that he was a good soldier.

I'm currently trying to get permission to remove the tree from in front of this marker. If it is not removed soon, the stone will be irreparably damaged. He has not direct descendants but his family tree is extensive.

I'm in contact with the cemetery association at the moment. I'm hoping to find kin who will assist in caring for his grave. I would do it myself but I am about 3 hours away.

His marker is historically significant for a number of reasons. It is not a government issued stone. It must have been quite expensive at the time; it is large, ornate and made of very fine marble.

The edging is also made of the same marble and, at the bottom, has two indents that seem to be made for mourners to kneel. I've not seen this design before. I've knelt there and, frankly, it's impressively comfortable. The inclusion of the ceramic/porcelain photograph makes it all the more stunning.

Wow - this is long. My brain is functioning this morning. :-)

Can you tell me where you obtained theses photos? I do not recall giving anyone permission to post them. Also, his name is Jessie.
