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.

My 1st cousin, 4th removed, served in Civil War.
Jun 1863- 1 Feb 1864, from Union Twp, Huntingdon, PA, USA.
Civil War - Enlisted in Company A, 22nd Regiment Pennsylvania Cavalry, serving until February 1, 1864, when he was honorably discharged, Cav. and G.A.R.
His stone is not a Civil War monument, but a family stone.
Message me your email address so I can send my finds to you directly. I will be starting on that listing we found at HCHS in November.

As I receive your information on Civil War Memorials I am going to transfer to you for management - best to have these brave souls with the one who knows them best. Keep up all your great work in remembering these fallen heros.

I updated the bio with the military information. I believe John S. McCoy, who is buried next to him is his brother. It appears they both fought at Antietam.
It would be much easier to communicate via email. I hate going through the boards and closed my because people keep requesting changes through the boards.

McConnellstown Cemetery. The memorials were created from a physical inventory done by Debbie Fisher Riley. She is excellent and I can rely on her accuracy 99.9% of the time. I respect the quality of her work.
Her database is located at http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~pahuntin/cemeteryrecords.htm It is broken into 6 files. I quickly glanced through the files and found him in file number 6. I am enclosing those buried in the same row as him. This shows that he has a physical stone that was recorded by Debbie Fisher Riley.

The question was about a duplication. Without additional research I cannot determine if your research would be a duplication. I would say that the if the individual you are trying to ad does not have a headstone, he would not be on Debbie's list.

Just realized ... How appropriate that I should find you a new man on Antietam Day!

Thanks for adding the photo and providing the bio info for Capt. William H. Simpson. He would be the cousin of my ancestor Eleazer Simpson (1846-1926. I was at Norwood Cemetery in July taking pix of anyone I thought might be distantly related & needed a pix for find a grave. If you know anyone that might be buried in nearby Little York cemetery wait a while so I can go thru my over 700 pix from yesterday & add them as well.

You are welcome Donald. The true location of the grave is Section 22, Row E, Plot 16. I've already submitted an edit to Find A Grave. He was in the index as T.S.Jones - that's why I didn't find him earlier.
