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.

|I love genealogy||RE: McCrea, William J.|
Looking in the online Orphan's Court Records, a William J McCrea, Renovo, PA died April 3, 1904.
FOUND THIS from that date:
The Clinton County Times, Lock Haven, PA, Fri., April 8, 1904.
William J McCrea.
William J McCrea, a well known citizen of Renovo, died suddenly at his home Sunday evening of heart failure. Mr. McCrea had not been enjoying good health for a short time previous to his death but he had not been confined to bed and the end came as he was about to partake of his supper Sunday evening.
The deceased was born in Hollidaysburg but had been engaged in the mercantile business in Renovo for many years. He is survived by two brothers, Robert and Charles. Deceased was also a brother to the late George R McCrea who was well known in this city.
The funeral was conducted at his late home Wednesday afternoon by Dr. A. R. Miller, and interment was made in the Fairview cemetery.

|I love genealogy||Virtual Cemetery for the PA 125th|
Hello, I found you "Virtual Cemetery" for the PA 125th and I have a person whose bio says he was in that unit. I didn't know if you wanted to add him to this listing or not. Frank Harvey Find A Grave no. 144365538
Frank G McCutcheon Find A Grave #130319990 Your Note: Civil War Veteran, Union Army: CO H, 12TH US INF
Frank wasn't born till 1872. I don't think this would be information for him. It may be for his father but I don't see a memorial for any other Frank McCutcheon.
You have done a lot of really good research. Thank You for all the updates and please keep them coming. All information is greatly appreciated.

|Scott Teeters||Information on 125 PVI|
I have some information that you may find very helpful concerning the 125th PVI. I too have a vested interest in this regiment and would enjoy sharing what I have with you. Please contact me via email to discuss.
|Albert Ledoux||RE: Geo Mauk (Mank)|
It does all point in the direction of "Mauk", doesn't it!
Annetta is in the PA deaths too, indexed as "Armetta Williams." The informant was her husband, and the maiden name here is "Mock."
Do a search in "Public Member Trees" in Ancestry, on "Annetta Mauk." There's a researcher EAWilliams52 who has apparently done a lot of information-gathering, and she thinks the correct spelling is "Mauk."
|Albert Ledoux||George Mauk 125 PA|
I think I found George Mauk, Company E, 125th PA. He's buried as George "Mank" at Soldiers' Home in DC.

|Albert Ledoux||RE: Simon B @ St Marys|
I've been working for the last hour or more on figuring out something on James Benden, whom you have buried in St. Patrick's Cemetery. I agree that he most likely is there, accompanied by his unmarried brother William. Problem is ... no stones! Mama has one, though, 137345425, and so does Elizabeth 137346625. Various Ancestry Pubic Tree folks make the assertion that James died in 1880, but his medical exams in his pension envelope run at least through April 22, 1891.
Thanks for your suggestion for Mr. Steven's memorial page. Done!

Thank you for your kind words. The Riverview project has been very successful as I have heard from many sharing the same sentiments you shared. Your project sounds very interesting too - putting together a piece of our nations past. I just added a photo to John Shriner, Co F 125 PVI. Wish we were able to read all stones, but many are damaged, missing, or just unreadable due to environmental conditions.
