I am interested in gravestone photographs of soldiers that served with the 100th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry Regiment, "Roundheads" I maintain these images on my website on two pages, Roll of Honor-that honors soldiers that died during the war and Post War RIP-that honors soldiers that died of old age or other causes after the war and muster out, August 1865 --. I acknowledge photo credit back to the person who took the photos as well as copy and paste the memorial information with findagrave # into each soldier's data, arranged by company, officers and then enlisted men.|

Hi, My name is Scot Novak, I was pleased to find the photo of John L. Johnson on the findagrave web site. He is a cousin. Did you obtain the photo from any family members? If so I would like to contact them for any additional info on the Johnson family. John L. Johnson's father was Andrew Johnson from Fayette CO. PA. Andrew was in the War of 1812.

Perhaps there is a place to call for Boatman Cem. that you can inquire about the old piled up stones. Im not sure if they are still there or not. I would guess they are. I think the newer stone is in error as well. Kim
Geez!lol I see now that we have had a similar conversation regarding these men. Did you ever follow up about the old stones piled up against the building? I bet there was valuable info in some of those. Good luck...Kim
Hi there.. do we know where "Reuben" is buried? There are 3 other Reuben Mayberrys on Find a Grave...none of which fit. (but that doesn't mean much) I find so many old stones replaced with new ones that end up with errors. I am thinking that whoever was responsible for the new stone had found out additional info and had the stone altered a bit. Perhaps the middle initial R does stand for Reuben, but the first name was Curtis? Can we find death certificates or enlistment papers for these men? So many mysteries ...they are boggling sometimes. I must say that Boatman Cem. is a very odd little cemetery... complete with chains and locks. You have to give the police dept your drivers liscense AND THEN you are given permission to enter with the key. Crazy! There is a huge cemetery on the hill in Palestine. Maybe check that one too. Take care...Kim:-)

I have the other headstones that I took.
|Kimberlie Frye||RE: Curtis R. Mayberry|
Hello, That head stone is definatly a replacement for the original. That cemetery is rather tough to get into. It is fenced in and locked by the city of East Palestine. One needs special permission to have it opened by going through the police dept. and then filling out a bunch of paperwork as to who you are and what purpose you have in the cemetery. I even had to leave my drivers license with them...funny being that I then had to "drive" back over to be let inside. I would assume, given your info, that this is the same man "Curtis" and "Reuben. There is a small memorial set up in the front of the cemetery (behind the fence) for Veterans. By the outbuilding were the old, original headstones. Probably by now they were distroyed. I imagine you could call the police dept./city hall and inquire. There may be more info on those old stones. Phone #330-426-4341
Let me know how you make out. Kim :-)

I have Smith Reed , Co G 62 Regt PA ENF , William Jones Co G 46 regt PA VOL INF, and John Wallace who died in 1889, all of Grandview, Beaver Falls cemetery. All civil war vets, if you don't have there headstone photos
|Cathi Moore||RE: Civil war vets|
I read that you like information on civil war vets, and I have two that I took photos of today. One is Samuel W Porter, 1843-1912 and the other is Anton Probst, 1840-1894. Anton Probst headstone says Pvt. CO. F 14 REGT. PA cal. and Samuel Porter's says PVT. CO H 101 PV infan.
I'm not sure if you are interested in either of them, but you can check out their memorials if you want. I have already posted their headstone photos.
They are both in Grandview Cemetery in Beaver Falls, PA
