I LOVE to find relatives and homes for the memorials I manage, so IF you see a memorial you'd like TRANSFERRED, I'm more then happy to do so, just put in the request via the "EDIT" option.

It was extremely rare for bodies to be shipped home during the Civil War for multiple reasons. No refrigeration, the logistics of shipping thousands of bodies in the middle of a war where just getting the sick and wounded home was difficult. Most died of typhoid. Bodies would be in the ground as soon as possible to prevent more disease.
Chances are the memorial in Mt Vernon is a Cenotaph which means there is no body. The wording of the stone also indicates to me that it is a Cenotaph.
However this is great information. I plan to leave my memorial however will add that there is a memorial with other family members in Mt. Vernon unless there is proof that the body was shipped home.
|Patty Leigh||RE: Andrew Stinger|
On the 1850 Federal Census Record it shows Catharine M. Stinger age 26 living with Andrew Stinger(49) and his children ages 15, 13, 10, 9,8,and 5. The line I followed was one of those sons who married a relative of mine. I would presume that Catharine might be a niece of Andrew Sr....she was listed last after all of the children which indicates that she is not one of his children. Hope this helps.
