PVT Stephen Henry Ketch
I am sorry to inform you but PVT Stephen Henry Ketch is not buried in a marked grave at Yorktown National Cemetery. I am able to confirm he did die of illness. (dysentery) This was not uncommon. It was a very dirty and crowded area. There is the chance he was returned home. I have run into a few men that are marked as buried at Yorktown, but found shipping cards and records that they were sent home. Embalming was a new science but was used and the cost would have been about $25.00. I will continue to look for him in my papers at William and Mary. God Bless you and yours. Anne Wood

Updates made as you requested. Do you know where any of her 3 husbands are buried?

Hello, Thanks for getting the photo of James M Shaw's headstone. It was great that he and his wife had the same headstone. Thank you for posting the photo on her memorial page as well.

Thanks. I am just a volunteer trying to do a good job for the people in the cemetery that I am working in.

RE: Kriesche's in Riverview Cemetery
I don't remember for sure but ground looks same and shade etc. they are in same section so I guess yes. You can call the cemetery and see if lot number is same. Just give names and section M and if lot numbers are same or next to each other you'll know for sure

When I was in another section I found her stone by chance. I don't know if it was my error or if the record is wrong, but the photo is posted.

RE: Karoline (Strobuch) Kriesche
Check the caption, there is a record of the burial, there just isn't a headstone. Not at all uncommon in the immigrant cemeteries here in Chicago. I would guess at least 20-35% of the requests have a record of the burial but no marker.
