I am a passionate 'history buff and armchair genealogist' for these past 30-odd years which includes, but is not limited to, New England, Mid-West and the Western United States. Plus I am a member of several Lineage Societies and Genealogy Societies in the United States.|
Currently I am researching, compiling and documenting the Civil War Veterans buried in/around Spokane County, Washington with over 4,000 names and counting.
Plus I am also researching, compiling and documenting 1812 REAL Daughters and their veteran fathers buried in the Pacific Northwest and the surrounding states.
Please Note: I will transfer FindaGrave.com web pages to proven family members only that ask politely!

|Terry Moore||RE: Benjamin Ross|
According to an article from a newspaper story I found online, "He fought in the U.S. Navy aboard the USS Constitution in the War of 1812." That is all the info provided in the article.
What is your interest in Benjamin Ross? I have not been able to find much info on him but would appreciate anything you have.
|Carl Wilder||RE: Viola Day Photo|
You are quite welcome. I, also, added Minnie Day. Her small headstone was buried over the years and is next to Viola's. If you need anybody else in Woodlawn, let me know. I am just down the road from there.
I am working on other requests for Woodlawn.

I don't know if he has a military stone or not - the next time I'm there, I will do some further checking.
We are in the middle of some heavy snow now, so it may be awhile before I can get down there.
Please be patient,

Some information which may be helpful to you in your search for this Civil War vet.
His widow, Josephine E Morse Jones, filed her claim for widow pension from Idaho on 31 Mar 1892. The last known child of the marriage, Horace, was born in Jul 1886 before they left Wisconsin. Date of death is probably somewhere inbetween, probably closer to 1891-1892. As she was the postmaster of Post Falls, Idaho in 1900, she was in the curious position of certifying her own pension vouchers for payment!
The M1845 Card Record of Headstones Provided Union Civil War Veterans is maddeningly unhelpful. A stone was issued about 1904, but the index card does not say where it was sent, nor what the date of death of the veteran was. However, you are looking for an Original Belknap government (US Shield) marker, 10 inches wide, probably extremely worn by now, which originally read "McKendria Jones Musician Co K 5 Wis Inf"
Daughter Lelia, who married Merton L Austin, has a Washington death certificate on 13 Jan 1924 at Colbert. This certificate probably says where she was buried, and could be where a family lot is located. Good luck, and stay in touch.
