Bio and Links
I am a museum curator for the Department of the Interior with an interest in the Civil War on the frontier. I am currently tracking down the final resting places of as many men of the 7th Iowa Cavalry Regiment, which served along the Oregon Trail during the Civil War. Thanks to Find-A-Grave I have been able to get photos of 900 of these veteran graves - and only have 700 more to go as of April 25, 2012.

RE: Hezekiah Davidson site
if you have that happen and get him a marker, let me know so I can retake a photo when it is up. His wife is in that lot too.

Yes, the man in the white beard in William Coulson.

His 3rd wife (Ann Laws) was the mother of my grandmothers 2nd husband. There were several marriages between Williams children and Ann Laws Goodges children. So I guess he is sort of related.

You have permission to use my photos. I have a little more information on his service if you would like it. Georgea

RE: George Gale Mobley
Hi Dean, further to our conversation about George Gale Mobley. I was just too curious, I was able to track down a descendant of George, who lives in the same area. The lady was very nice and obliging. George is buried on his property in Sunnybrae just a few miles East of Tappen, BC. There is no headstone. You could Goggle that if your courious.
Note - the Mobley family are having a Family Reunion on July 1, 2016.

Sincerely
Terry

If you ever need help with other markers in my area please keep me in mind. I enjoy doing this type of research and get bored doing genealogy for my family solely.

RE: James Hill
I was able to confirm that the plot is in fact that of James D Hill Enlisted in Company E, Iowa 7th Cavalry Regiment on 19 Oct 1864 through an old cemetery plot map and an Iowa cemetery record listing his G.A.R. involvement. I crossed reference through some other records that I tracked down and there is no question that this is him. Unfortunately the stone is missing but I took a pic of plot with the broken stone and the G.A.R. marker.

RE: James Hill
Do you know anything of James' family? I know reading the obituary that is on this site that the persons listed as his parents and brother is incorrect.

Hi Dean,
Would you like me to phone a Mobley who lives here still?

RE: George Mobley
Hi Dean,
I phoned Hillside Cemetery just now & there is no record of George, though his wife is. I went to Tappen Cemetery, no George there. Even the F. Mobley listed in Tappen have not been able to find who that is.

Hi Dean,
George was buried on Sept. 11 1919, 2 days after he died. Death certificate has him buried at Tappen, BC. An hour's dive from me. I'll be going over that way this week, I'll take a look.
