Joseph Solomon died of an infection in his leg after being shot in the civil war. Family story was that he was a prisoner at Libby prison in Richmond Va. but I have found nothing to verify that. He was originally buried in Oak Park Cemetery in Lansing until a flood in the 1870s caused the graves to flood and the bodies had to be removed. Families had 10 years to remove their loved ones. His wife Sarah Bryant McKrill chose Mt. Hope to rebury him. His grave has the date he was reburied not the date he died.
