Bio and Links
From outside Pittsburgh PA in Westmoreland County. I am researching two units that served in the Civil War from Westmoreland County- Company E 105 PA Volunteer Infantry Regiment (Wildcat), and from Pittsburgh- Knaps Pennsylvania Independent Battery E. Also researching troops that went West after the war and ended up in Missoula Montana. Remember to Visit Americas Battlefields When you Can - While you can.

Grave Location
Dear James, The grave of Sgt. James H. Taylor, 105th Pennsylvania, Co.E is located in the public cemetery in Grand Junction, Michigan, Columbia Township, Van Buren County. The grave is a government provided stone, in good condition, located on the North edge of the East (Original) Cemetery in Grand Junction. The grave is located approximately at the half way point between the front and back (West-East)of the cemetery, along the wire boundary fence. The cemetery itself is located near the SE corner of County Road 388 and 53rd St. If you wish, I will try to provide a photograph in the future. Tom

Correct photo posted.

Plus an overall photo of other graves. We have about 5,000 flags to place every year. The Scouts help us put all of the flags on the graves. The sad part is they come off after Flag Day.

The photo is wrong and I have deleted it.

I will be there on Thursday and will look for his stone.

You might want to move your memorial you have in Union Cemetery "New Kensington" PA over to Union Cemetery "Arnold, PA". There is no Union Cemetery in NK. The two towns adjoin and the Cemetery's mailing address is NK, that is why individuals often get the two towns confused and why it is often listed as New Kensington in obits. But the cemetery is in Arnold and they have put burials online here at find-a-grave
