|Scott||Charles Sykes' Headstone|
Thank you very much for Charles Sykes' headstone picture! He's my grandpa, but I don't live near Michigan any more. It means a lot.

The RI gravestone database notes the following:
Pvt Co E 7 RI Inf/Civil War-Medal of Honor
It also notes a granite horizontal marker - I posted a vertical marble gravestone. I live not far and would be happy to see if the granite stone is in fact a military marker if you would like.
I find the following at: http://www.history.army.mil/html/moh/civwarmz.html
Rank and organization: Private, Company E, 7th Rhode Island Infantry. Place and date: At Weldon Railroad, Va., 18 August 1864. Entered service at: Burrillville, R.I. Birth: England. Date of issue: 20 July 1897. Citation: While acting as an orderly to a general officer on the field and alone, encountered a picket of 3 of the enemy and compelled their surrender.
Thanks for pointing out the incorrect burial location. Since the other memorial had a headstone as proof, I had the memorial I am taking care of deleted. It may take a few days for Find A Grave to delete but the request is in. Kerry
Hi, thanks for straightening out the mix up with where Brian is buried and making sure I got his headstone photo.

|Judy Hull||Henry S. Johnson|
I saw the photo of Henry S. Johnson who is buried at Forest Lawn Cemetery in Washtenaw County, Michigan. I am a member of the Michigan Society United States Daughters of 1812. Our State Chapter has been busy documenting service and photographing headstones for War of 1812 Veterans buried in Michigan. Henry S. Johnson is one of those Veterans and I am wondering if you would give permission to put your photograph in our book of 1812 Veterans buried in Michigan. The book won't be published for at least a year. If not, I understand and when the weather breaks will take a road trip to photograph the headstone.
Thanks for your consideration,
