Bio and Links
I live in Rochester, NY and am researching the 108th New York Volunteer Infantry, a local Civil War Regiment. I am trying to find the gravestones of as many soldiers of the 108thNYVI as I can to include them in my companion book to the original Regimental history published in 1894. I am also looking for descendants of these soldiers. Contributions are appreciated and accepted!

Thomas Benton - Graceland Cem. Chicago
In response to your photo request fro Thomas Benton (45275762), the cemetery responded to me: "Thomas Benton—I do not find records for him. We have Benton records but not a Thomas or any with death in 1880. Ashes of a Benton cremation were sent to Rosehill. You might try Rosehill." This in spite of the obituary in the memorial. Rosehill Cemetery is nearby in Chicago Regards, Bob Lerch

The batch upload was done to the wrong cemetery and Findagrave was asked many times to transfer the batch upload and they have not. I will fix this person now.

It says it is in MT Hope Rochester

Thomas Bundy.
Hi Brian....

Wow! Thomas Bundy certainly sounded like a very interesting fellow with an amazing life story to tell. And only 37 when he died. I can't imagine how indulging freely in ice cream, attributed as the cause of his death. (I shouldn't joke but it is quite interesting at how things were put down in newspapers in those days) I pasted everything you wrote into his memorial. Thanks for sending it along. Very interesting!

I noticed that the marker is located within the Varney family plot. Enos is buried directly behind. This might explain the relocation from Mount Auburn.

Hello Brian:

You did earlier send a brief acknowledgement so I know that you saw the photo. I came across the grave just by chance as I was searching for something else at the time.
Unfortunately, the stone is worn and quite dirty.
I lived in Rochester from 1981 to 1983 while I was going to graduate school at UR. Sorry you couldn't make it to Woodlawn - it was patterned after Mount Auburn. I would like some day to tour Mount Hope - I certainly.know where it is located.

I looked for Morris Darrohn, didn't find him. I don't know if you would be able to get it, but if you could find his lot number, in the spring I will take another look.
