thanks, but that transcription was made by an eagle scout who decided what the tone said and calculated birth dates from what he thought the death date was.don't take everything you see on the internet for gospel.

I transferred the graves to you that you requested. Glad I could help. I'm trying to photograph the whole cemetery. I finished Section 1 and Section 2. Now working on Section 3.

Oliver Fadden
Jerry,

I am happy to transfer Oliver Fadden's Find-a-Grave page over to you. I have an enduring interest in the 412 Vermonters captured at the battle of the Weldon Railroad on 6/23/1864 and have written a book about them (See" David Faris Cross: A Melancholy Affair at the Weldon Railroad, White Mane publishing Co.).

Here is what I have on him:

Oliver Fadden Enlisted 8/13/1862 credited to Isle LaMontte VT. Captured 6/23/64. Sent to Millen, Georgia, 11/11/64. Paroled 11/26/64. Mustered out 6/24/65. Living on Manhattan, New York City, and working as a painter on the 1880 Federal census. Died in the Bronx at age 57 on 6/9/1901 of pneumonia. Buried in the "Old" St. Raymond's Cemetery Section #6 Range 40 Grave #23 at New York City where there is an unusual granite monument inscribed:

IN MEMORY OF
MY BELOVED WIFE
BEULAH SCHRADER
DIED FED 26th 1923
HER FATHER
SERGT OLIVER FADDEN
CO. K 17th [sic] INFANTRY
VERMONT VOLUNTEERS
COMDR P.C. MAHR POST
DIED JUNE 9th 1901
MOTHER
MARGARET FADDEN
DIED MAY 20th 1930

IF WE STILL LOVE THOSE WE LOSE
CAN WE ALTOGETHER LOSE THOSE WE LOVE
REST IN PEACE
Granted an invalid pension in 1892. His widow, Maggie Fadden, who lived until 1930, granted a pension from New York unknown date. Also listed as O. Faddon at Andersonville.

On the inscription "COMDR P. C. MAHR POST" is a mystery to me. Presumably he was commander of a GAR Post but I have not been able to identify it, but obviously it was felt to be significant. Do you have an interpretation? I would appreciate your sharing any further bio information you have on him. Is there a photograph of him in Civil War uniform or later?

Thanks David F. Cross MD
