Bio and Links
Bio Photo There is only one tragedy worse than the burial of a fallen hero in an unknown grave. Some heroes are known at the time of interment, but due to erosion and neglect, become unknown at a later date. We cannot permit this to occur.

Legible headstones are best. Next best are precise GPS coordinates, taken at the center of the grave.

James and Josephine Haslett
You left a request for the burial place of James and Josephine Haslett. I am the sec/Treasurer of the Beulah cemetery where they are buried. I took a photo of their grave, but the inscription cannot be seen because of lilies that were planted around it. If I had not had my cemetery map with me, it would be impossible to see the stone. The grave site DOES have a GAR marker and a flag.

We, the cemetery Board, do not have any deeds or records for this section of our cemetery. This was once the site of the Presbyterian Church where the records were kept and it burned in 1905 or 1906, thus losing the records.

If you will email me I will attach the photo I have. One note, the dates inscribed on the stones are as follows:
James A. Haslett: b. 1844, d.1931
Josephine: b. 1845, d.1913

If I can be of further help, please let me know.

RE: Corp James T Temple
Caroline Estelle Temple (nee Conrad) married James T. Temple on 26 February, 1868, in Pennsylvania.
He died in Philadelphia, 5 November 1872, and was buried at the Old Darby Friends Burial Ground in Darby, PA. (Caroline did not die until 13 August, 1928.) James had been born a Quaker which was the reason he was buried as a Quaker. Her brother, J. Fletcher Conrad, helped raise her two children; they lived with him until he passed away on 14 May, 1898, in Philadelphia. James and Caroline were the great-grandparents of my husband, Dale Temple.

Finding section G
Hi. How do I locate section G in Fairview Cemetery in Altoona? There don't seem to be any maps online. Are there markers that I didn't notice? Thanks!

That is the pic of the correct stone, the date matches the burial card. It is just that the name is unreadable. Change your date to what is on his veteran burial card. Chalk would have cleared this up quickly.

RE: John A Kelly @ Fairview
Thank you for the photo and the update! That explains why earlier photographers could not locate it. :D

Veterans listing from HCHS
Say, going through the listing we found at HCHS last summer. Creating spreadsheet with updated info, but when I can I am transferring Civil War veterans to you as I go through the listing - so look for many transfers coming your way. When I complete, I'll send you updated spreadsheet as it does differ from what we have but you will have Find A Grave # listed for individuals. Unfortunately, there are some memorials I can't find. At the end of this exercise we could create a Find A Grave memorial entry with notation that we don't know where burial is. We can talk more later.

You have a photo request for the old Salisbury National Cemetery. Few Civil War burials have monuments. Most were buried in Mass Graves, of which there are several and no one really know who is buried in them.
There is no way to fulfill this request. All known monuments from this part of the cemetery have been photographed.
