per his niece, Andrea Smith, he is buried in Richfield Cemetery in Idaho, not where the duplicate memorial has him. (I then moved this memorial from Meckling to Richfield)

Oct 4 2014
I received an email from an Ann Lea stating he is not in Richfield Cemetery.

Oct 21 2014
There is a duplicate of this memorial in Meckling Cemetery, therefore I am moving this one back to that cemetery because there is a headstone photo on the duplicate.
