Bio Photo I am a passionate 'history buff and armchair genealogist' for these past 30-odd years which includes, but is not limited to, New England, Mid-West and the Western United States. Plus I am a member of several Lineage Societies and Genealogy Societies in the United States.

Currently I am researching, compiling and documenting the Civil War Veterans buried in/around Spokane County, Washington with over 4,000 names and counting.

Plus I am also researching, compiling and documenting 1812 REAL Daughters and their veteran fathers buried in the Pacific Northwest and the surrounding states.

Bret Henry
Grave of Albert Henry
Hello, Jake.

I'd like to thank you for taking the time to put together such a wonderful memorial for Albert Henry, Spokane , Wa. Memorial #60039060.

My Name is Bret Henry and I'm a direct line descendant from Albert. He is my great, great grandfather. As I get older I am more intrigued with my genealogy. As an Army Infantry Vet and war history buff I also thought it was pretty darn cool my grandpa was a civil war soldier.

Thank you for your dedication. This page means a lot to me.

RE: Mary Fellows ( -1858) Buried Franklin Grove Cemetery, Lee County, IL
Glad to be of help! When spring gets here, I'm usually in this cemetery once a week. I'll try to remember to double check the locations. They're both near the front as Mary especially would be one of the oldest burials in this cemetery.

Mary and Capt. Jonathan Fellows are near each other in the cemetery, although I would have to go back and take another look to see if they are side by side. Mary's stone is broken, as you can see in the photo, but I do believe that toward the bottom of her stone, I thought I could see the Latin symbol for Age and 65 years, if that helps any. I wasn't certain enough of that to put it on her memorial page though.

Some information which may be helpful to you in your search for this Civil War vet.

His widow, Josephine E Morse Jones, filed her claim for widow pension from Idaho on 31 Mar 1892. The last known child of the marriage, Horace, was born in Jul 1886 before they left Wisconsin. Date of death is probably somewhere inbetween, probably closer to 1891-1892. As she was the postmaster of Post Falls, Idaho in 1900, she was in the curious position of certifying her own pension vouchers for payment!

The M1845 Card Record of Headstones Provided Union Civil War Veterans is maddeningly unhelpful. A stone was issued about 1904, but the index card does not say where it was sent, nor what the date of death of the veteran was. However, you are looking for an Original Belknap government (US Shield) marker, 10 inches wide, probably extremely worn by now, which originally read "McKendria Jones Musician Co K 5 Wis Inf"

Daughter Lelia, who married Merton L Austin, has a Washington death certificate on 13 Jan 1924 at Colbert. This certificate probably says where she was buried, and could be where a family lot is located. Good luck, and stay in touch.
