Request for Photograph

Is is possible to get a photograph of the gravestone of "Pvt. Robert S. Stevenson?

Many thanks,

Nancy A. Shattuck

Nancy A. Shattuck
Pvt. R.S. Stevenson

Thank you for posting this grave.

R.S. Stevenson was Robert S. Stevenson.

Born: 1821 in Washington Co., Missouri
Died: 17 September 1862 in Sharpsburg, Washington Co., Maryland

Parents unknown

He married 1. Caroline Shattuck on 7 April 1845 in Dubuque, Dubuque Co., Iowa

He married 2. Minerva Shattuck (Caroline's sister) on 9 May 1856 in Waukon, Allamakee Co., Iowa.

Prior to enlisting in Beetown, Wisconsin in 1861, he had lived in Waukon, Iowa and had studied to be a lawyer. He had also engaged in lead mining in Iowa and Wisconsin prior to the war.

He was killed in the very early morning at the beginning of the day's battle in the cornfield. He had been ill and left the field hospital when he heard the cannons, under protest from the staff, to join the conflict. He remarked to his Captain upon seeing him in the field, "Captain, I am with you to the last."

Caroline Shattuck is being added as a child of George Clinton Shattuck and Anna Bronson by that contributor. I have just sent all of the information for all of the Shattuck children to be connected. There were 12!

Please contact me if you have any questions!

Thank you for all of the work you have done. It is so very much appreciated!

Thank you so much for the photo. Soon even the name will be unreadable. Wonder what the rest said, that we will never know now. Weather is not kind to those old markers. Awesome to have this. Keep well, Sharon

Martin Bllmeyer
Please correct dates contained for Martin. dates should died 12 apr 1812 and it states 65 years. Also,if possible, i would be happy to take this memorial, he is a distant direct line relative.

Pvt T. B. Seeley
Hi! I believe I've just added records for T.B.'s parents (my 6x great grandparents) if you'd like to link them: Theron Barley Seely # 148945532 & Sarah Mary Edgerly Seely # 148946521. Family records show that their son, Theron Barley Jr died in 1862 in Antietam, MD and was part of PVT CO B 7 MICH INF. Looks like a match to me!
Thanks. Kelly

RE: Gustavus Travis Croston
Thank you BIRDMAN. Gustavus appears to be my 4th great grandfather, but I haven't been able to confirm through birth, marriage, or death records. He only has military records which don't provide much in regards to family. I'd gotten most of my inforamtion from others research and census records. No transfer at this time, at least, unitl I can confirm. Bless you for your efforts.

Thank you,

Gustavus Travis Croston
Hi I was wondering where the date of death came from. I see 1841 all over and other family trees, not to mention on the memorial, I have been unable to find any birth or death records but I did find this statement from West Virginia Legislature House Concurrent Resolution no. 44 "Gustavus Travis Croston died June 3, 1839. His grave is in the quiet woods on his land near the place where Maple Run empties into the North River just west of North River Mills;"

Thank you,
Donna Harvey (Mayle)

RE: George

I'm so glad I was able to help.

Thanks for all the work you do for Find a Grave I have seen your pics on some of the soldiers' memorials from the Natl. Cemetery. My son & I were there to help the NPS clean the cemetery in the spring. I go to Sharpsburg often.

If I can be of any more help please don't hesitate to ask.
