The grave of my great great grandfather, Daniel Sanders, Co I, 203 Pennsylvania Infantry. Drafted after Gettysburg at the age of 35, he went to war leaving a wife and four children behind. He was stricken with typhoid fever while in North Carolina and was shipped to a hospital in New York City where he died after Lee's surrender at Appomattox.

 

I finally located his grave in 2002 -- the flag was placed there on Memorial Day, I added the repro cap for effect.

 

Rest in peace, Daniel. You are not forgotten.

My Great Grandfather. Served prior to WW1, 1st California Artillery. My Grandmother gave me a picture of him in uniform on the Mexican Border when I was 13 and that is how my collecting all got started.

This is what's left of my 5X Great Grandfather, William Patterson's headstone. He joined the Virginia Militia during the American Revolution and served under Sevier and Marion during his time of service. He also fought at the Battle of King's Mountain. He is buried in a small family cemetery on the side of a mountain in East Tennessee. When my uncle and I got to the cemetery we discovered that his fieldstone marker and many other had been pulled up, broken and tossed around. I am currently in the process of joining the Sons of the American Revolution and one of my first projects will be to get him a new headstone. swqwp2.jpg

This is my 3X Great Grandfather, Clark Patterson. He was loyal to the Union as was most of East Tennessee. He served in the 2nd Regiment Tennessee Volunteer Infantry, Company H. His son Ghastin also served in the 2nd Regiment but was in Company C. Ghastin was captured by rebel forces and was confined at Richmond where he starved to death. 2i76ybt.jpg

In our local cemetery (Newaygo Michigan 49337) is the grave of a civil war vet.

 

The stone says "S.H.HARDEN 6th INDP'T CO OHIO VOL SHARPSHOOTERS"

 

No other information is available. No dates, nothing...

 

The monument stands about 7 1/2 foot tall

 

I know nothing about him but we visit the grave now and then to pay our respects.

We were at this cemetery which is the Fort Ridgely Minnesota State Park near Fairfax MN which was a prominent battle during the Dakota War in 1862 here in MN and when unbeknownst to us he was KIA on the other side of the world. As a result my parents had his body buried here.
