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.

If you look at the memorial you can see what it says. It also has a dates and a place of burial, while yours has neither of those. Burials unknowns are supposed to be temporary.

You don't know they are the same, but you clearly do not have enough information to show that they are not.

Regarding Sgt. Joshua Fulmer #63570789.
I'm posting on his memorial his Certificate of Death (#130610).
You can copy and download for your records if you like.
Then, if you want me to (at your request); I can leave it up there, or I can delete it - either way.
Just wanted you to see it.
I'm 97% certain he is the younger brother of Daniel A. Fulmer #67091661, one of your original memorials you gifted to me.

Hi James,
I have inadvertently duplicated your memorial to James Byerly with my #114517100. He is my 2nd great grandfather so I have some additional info in mine. I would be glad to take over management of this and combine the two, or let you continue to manage it if you prefer. I realize you are working on our Civil War history and appreciate your contributions. Please let me know how you would like to proceed. Best regards!

Pvt. Daniel A. Fulmer (#67091661)
Greetings James,
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! :)
