Very good! I will add the memorial.
|Penchance||RE: Lloyd Orwin|
You are vey welcome. If you want to create a memorial for his wife Rose, I can add the photo to it as well, or I can create a memorial for her.

There are hundreds of unknown graves. The person at the front desk told me that records were kept of the deceased, but that there were so many deaths during the battle, they were buried on the battlefield and then later reburied. The exact location of each soldier was not recorded. The end result is that they know he is there, but not which "unknown" grave he is in.

Marty is the best! He's much braver than I am to crawl under bushes.
Glad you now have a remembrance of the people you were looking for.
|Marty McCarthy||Cyrus Howe and Nancy found!|
Today I found Cyrus B. Howe's marker and his sister Nancy Malvina Brown. The stone is standing and is fairly legible yet. Position of the sun was bad and I had to dive into a thick bush to get the shot! take care, Marty
|Janet Marie||Success! - Ephriam Howe|
I'm glad my friend, Marty McCarthy found Ephriam Howe's marker. It must have been buried pretty well.
Marty is the Find A Grave contributor I told you about who does repairs on markers. I told him about Alexander Clark's marker (#83900598) that was in disrepair. Check out the wonderful job Marty did fixing it. Scroll to one of the earlier photos to see how it looked in May 2015. It looked far worse in 2016. Marty is truly a miracle worker.
Marty described in detail how he found Ephriam's marker on my contributor page. Please check it out!
Now all we have to do is to find Cyrus Howe's cenotaph at Howes Corners to complete the missing Howes!
|Marty McCarthy||RE: Ephraim Howe|
I tried in the past too, check my reply on Janet Marie's page - I accidentally found him when I walked atop of his buried stone! One more Howe to find!
|Janet Marie||RE: Howes Cemetery|
I photographed all of the visible markers in the spring of 2015. I did not find Cyrus, Lydia, and Ephriam then. I went yesterday to look for updates when I found Lydia Howe's marker way under a bush at the east end of the cemetery. It's possible there are other markers underneath the bush, but I could get to them.
Another Find A Grave contributor is going to go to Howes Corners to make a repair on a marker. He has looked for Cyrus and Ephriam Howe in the past and has not found them.
I do have photographs of a few markers that are totally illegible that I have not posted. It's possible that one of them belongs to Cyrus or Ephriam.
I have found the online transcriptions you looked at to be fairly accurate, but I have found many errors in them as well.
If you really want to find out, you could contact a funeral home in Waushara County. They can provide you with the name and contact information for the sexton of the cemetery. He/She might be able to give you a location within the cemetery. I'd be happy to drive back to the cemetery if you find more information about where Cyrus and Ephriam's markers are located.
