This VA marker was placed here by the DAR in honor of him. Because the VA required that their markers be placed in "maintained" cemeteries, it was originally placed in Oak Hill Cemetery in Oneonta, and later moved to Easley Church of the Brethren, where many Cornelius descendants are buried. A couple VA markers can also be found here honoring Cornelius men who fought in the Civil War, but their burials are unknown, or not maintained.

This Memorial was created to compliment his real resting place, until a movement can be started to register, restore, and maintain the old family burial ground for future generations to enjoy.
