Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have done a lot of research for my Schindler Family Tree and also search for other history of the local area around Harrisburg, Pa.
I am also interested in the Civil War and have posted grave headstones of some who were wounded in the Battle of Gettysburg and sent to hospitals in Harrisburg, Pa. and died there and were buried there. If you find that any of these are your relatives please leave me a comment or send me a note. I would gladly give up ownership of the memorial to any relative and would appreciate knowing I may have been of help to someone researching their family.

RE: Helen Frady Memorial
I thought that since you have a direct relationship that it would be more appropriate. It was my pleasure.

155 Men at Harrisburg Cem
Hello, my spreadsheet upload has registered, and now there are about 129 names in the Virtual Cemetery. Some duplicates are still present, but we're getting there.
FYI, where the surname spelling differs from the headstone, I'm going by Regimental records. Thanks, Don C

RE: Harrisburg Cemetery Civil War
My opinion is the same as yours. Give Harrisburg Cemetery just a _little bit more_ of trimming, and it's one of the most beautiful places in the country.

Do you know about Captain William Wigton Wallace? He is buried in Harrisburg Cemetery, and he might be the first originator of the motto, "In God We Trust." His Company C of my grgrgrandfather's 125th PA used "In God We Trust" sixteen months before it was adopted by the U.S. Treasury Department. I'd be happy to show you his grave.

RE: Harrisburg Cemetery Civil War
Thank you. Please use the 'Virtual Cemetery' to discover existing memorials for these 155 guys. In many cases, there are aldready two or three memorials for the same soldier.

Yesterday, I uploaded a spreadsheet with 70 more. Those will be posted altogether within one week.

One of the 155 soldiers, Alexes H. Boartman, was a Private directly underneath my great great grandfather, Sgt John Coho, at the Battle of Antietam. We're going to take care of Alexes as best as we can; I cleaned the cobwebs and leaf-mulching debris off all 155 headstones yesterday.

The 'Virtual Cemetery' can be added to your Internet Explorer favorites!
