William J. Mershon tombstone
I apologize for not finding your note sooner.

Thank you for trying to find William J Mershon's tombstone. You noted finding one for Hufinah Mershon, daughter of Rev. J.B. Mershon. She would have been William's sister as Wm is found on the 1850 Coal Creek, Montgomery Co., IN census with J.B. and Rebecca Mershon. William served in Co. E, enrolled and mustered in [72nd IN] Oct. 20, 1864 in Lafayette by Capt. Thatcher as a Private at age 18. He was 5′ 8.50″ tall, fair complexion, brown eyes, and light hair. Born in Montgomery Co., IN, employed as a farmer. Mustered out at the end of the war Sep. 14, 1865 in Chattanooga, TN. His regiment was consolidated into 44th IN on Jul. 1, 1865. He should be recognized as being a soldier!

Warmest Regards for the work you do!!

Thank you
I want to thank you for the information you placed on my Dads memorial page. Even though my Dad has been gone 27 years his memory is still alive. It gives me a good feeling that after all these years there are still co workers that still remember him. All the people at Wilson Foods ment the world to him.

Thanks again, Gene Pevy
