Hi, Marilyn. I actually have no connection to this particular entry other than the fact that I submitted the Mt Hope Cemetery entrance photo. Sorry that I can't help you!
|Jimmy Jones||Alpstag / Alpsteg|
The U.S Army Register of Enlistments lists him as Albstag and Albsteg. His pension and gravestone lists him as Alpstag. You're right about the spellings. Through doing my own family research, I found that the letter "P" in english is not a "P" in German, but a "B". This could explain the "P/B" translation. However, if I were to go with anything, I believe it would be what is on his gravestone (Alpstag). This would be quite literally the last spelling of his name, probably by his wife or someone he knew, and I would assume this is accurate...at least I would hope so. Additionally, I would make a note of his other spellings for reference.
That is quite interesting what your doing. I spoke to one of the ladies who works at the Cemetery and she gave me the name of six 6th U.S. Cavalrymen who are buried there. I would assume there might be more, as two companies were raised in Rochester, NY. If you have any info about these men it would be much appreciated. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I would be more than happy to send you whatever I have on these men as well, to include family members, etc.
I look forward to corresponding with you,
