|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.|

Info added as requested.
|This Old Scarecrow||Pvt. Daniel A. Fulmer (#67091661)|
I was curious if you would consider letting me have this memorial to my great grandfather.
I have an extensive Fulmer family tree I've compiled since 1999, and I'm anxious to expand his biography, and add several new images.
I'm currently researching his parents George, and Elizabeth from the Millgrove area as well.
Your information is correct, and I commend you for it's accuracy.
Let me know how you feel about this.
By the way, I'm also writing a history of Yukon, the Magee Mine, Westmoreland Coal Co., and it's cultural, and economic effects during the Industrial Revolution, etc..
Interlaced with Fulmer family history where applicable, as the Fulmer's seemed (at least from a Fulmer perspective) to be the common species (that's me being humorous).
I'm originally from Northern Virginia (Falls Church, and Prince William County), and have had the unique pleasure of living in an area where I could visit and explore all of the major battlefields, including Gettysburg, and Sharpsburg.
I lived within walking distance of the Confederate batteries along the Potomac; Freestone Point, Possum Point, and Evansport (Quantico), and frequented that area extensively.
My next door neighbor in Falls Church was the noted Civil War author William Albaugh, as a child he gave freely of his time, and taught me an appreciation of local history, and the war between the states.
Thanks for your time, and consideration.

Hello there. Thank you for the information. I added the information and hope that I added to the correct areas. If you would take a kind moment to as proof read what I copied and pasted from your message I would be much obliged. I also gave you credit as for providing the information as well. The "Ind" abbreviation does it stand for a state? If so I can add in parenthesis the name of the state so that those that are reading will know what it means. Let me know if I can add anything else or if the information you provided belongs else where. Thank you for all that you do and Sounds fantastic what you guys do in regards to reenactments. I've watched a few and they are very fascinating to me. Cheers my fellow graver! :)

|LoyaltyOfDogs DotCom||Thank you re Greensburg Old German Cemetery|
Thank you for the information, Mr. Sims. Yes, how sad that the cemetery was treated this way! I hope that someday the records will eventually turn up after all. In the meantime, thank you for all your efforts to document the resting places of the people interred there!
|LoyaltyOfDogs DotCom||Civil War Soldier Sgt. Charles A. Herwick|
Hello, Mr. Sims. I am researching soldiers of the 11th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry who later enlisted with the 4th Pennsylvania Cavalry. Among them is Sgt. Charles A. Herwick, whose memorial you maintain. I understand that Sgt. Herwick's date of death is unknown, but do you have any information about the date of his burial in Greensburg's Old German Cemetery? If not, do you have any suggestions on sources I might check for further information? (Based on a baptismal record I found on-line, I believe Sgt. Herwick may be the son of Sarah S. Herwick, Find A Grave Memorial# 33065899, who is also buried in the Old German Cemetery.) Thank you for any information you can provide.
|Dolores Cochenour Carlson||RE: William Cochenour|
The William Cochenour in Co. H 15th Reg. PA Calvary is in my family tree. He was born 3 Nov 1840 & died 27 June 1929. He is buried in West Newton Cemetery. I know nothing about the other William Cochenour. It does seem likely that they are the same person.
I transfered He is apart of your search Please if you find anyone in Pittsburg From the 125th Pa Please let me know but don't transfer I'll get a hold of Don and let him know thanks

|Tom Greiffendorf||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
