Page 74 has Mortimer Anthony listed. It is a really interesting book on Civil War.

Joe, I was in Weatherly, Pennsylvania visiting family & we have family buried in Union Cemetery. I tried to find your photo request but I couldn't find very many. The ones I did find I posted pictures on their pages. I'm sorry I couldn't have helped more. I didn't get to look for very long. It had rained that morning & storms were moving in. I live in Missouri so I don't know when I will get a chance to go back to Weatherly, PA.

HI. I visited the Zion cemetery searching for my whetstone relatives, and took a new photo of the Absalom whetstone memorial. May I add it to your record?

RE: Jonas Setzer
Thank you so much, Joe. I appreciate it greatly. And, yes, the end of his life was very sad... especially for someone who fought hard for his country.

Thank you so much for adding that info to Prosper. It makes gathering the info worth it!

When we came to Pa., last year I fell in love with that cemetery. So beautiful and peaceful. I believe I've found a few more of that family but I need more documents to back it up!

TY TY for all your time and efforts!

Anytime, it was a nice day to walk. Did you see the name was spelled different than your request?

RE: Jesse Gangwer
Hey Joe! No, I was just Fagging his son Harry and wanted to link him to his dad Jesse - and that's how I discovered the dupe. So I hope you guys can work this out. Both memorials have neat stuff so a "merge" would be most appropriate here, I believe. Again, here is Harry's death certificate. Did the outfit you are researching come from Wyoming County, Pennsylvania? Just curious. Thanks, Tom

I added dozens of memorials and photos for all existing headstones to Center Union, but alas no headstone for Jacob H. could be found. There was a pile of old, small headstones around one of the cedar trees, it may be in that pile. But it was far too frigid to try to lift and look at them this weekend.
I added several GAR soldiers and was sucessful in looking up their regts. If you want the names, just ask.
