RE: Lucius Barker
Shilohbattlefield.org has a database that states L. Barker's "initial interment site as Recorded in 'Roll of Honor' Vol. XX, 1869" to be "Shiloh Battlefield." I'm thinking that his remains were not recovered.

His name was inscribed on a tablet at Shiloh ca 1912 (according to a Wisconsin newspaper).

RE: Lucius Barker
If you view the new memorial I added for Nathan you will be able to see what's inscribed on the back about Lucius. There are no military markers or any other indication that he's buried there.

Some records point to him being buried at Shiloh National Cemetery. Many newspaper articles (ca 1893-1930s) list this grave as one that would be honored each year by the local vet's groups.

Someone did add the memorial for him at Shiloh in July, 2004.

I have a few other ideas for things to look into, I'm sure we'll be in touch.

Yes, I love this research...I enjoy every second of it!

RE: Lucius Barker
Mark,

It looks like there's some confusion here. I've been working on this most of the day.

The Lucius Barker indicated on this stone is 1. NOT buried at this location; and 2. Is NOT the Lucius Barker who served for the 12th Mass.

First, the Lucius who was the son of Nathan Derby & Susanna (Hastings), was born Jan 22, 1819 at Marlborough, NH. He served for the 14th Wisconsin Regt., and was killed and buried at Shiloh on Apr. 7, 1862.

Second, the Lucius Barker who DID served in the Mass 12th later settle in Kansas. He is buried there at Browns Grove Cemetery (memorial #48417774).

I will be pulling the photos off his memorial, but you can find them attached to new memorials I've added for Nathan & Susan.

Mark do you know if there is an office that can be contacted about the burials in Laurel Hill. Or if burial records are in a book or online. Thank you- Carolyn
