Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm looking for the parents of Henry Aldrich who lost his life in battle at Antietam at Sharpsburg, Washington County, Maryland on September 17, 1862.

Mr. Aldrich entered the service from Bristol, Connecticut where he lived with his wife, Sarah (Peck) Aldrich and their three young children. He was 41 years old and working at the Bristol Clock Company when he enlisted on July 24, 1862. He was mustered into Company K of the 16th Connecticut Infantry on August 24, 1862, and was killed just 24 days later.

Mr. Aldrich is believed to have been born in Worcester, Massachusetts in 1821. He has been mistaken for Henry Alanson Aldrich who died in 1906.

Henry Aldrich's oldest son, John W. Aldrich also served in the Civil War, and I'm trying to learn who his mother was.

Thank you in advance for any advice or help you may have to offer.

RE: Eleanor Little
You are welcome. Apology accepted. And I'm hoping that you know who should be ordering her permanent gravestone. She deserves one as a veteran. And I'm also wondering if she is registered with the Women in Military Service to America foundation in Washington, DC. Your thoughts? MA

Best regards

Member 29th Connecticut

There is a member of the 29th Connecticut (Colored) Regiment that should be added to your virtual graveyard. HIs name is Henry E. Mumford of Co. B. He was born in October 1833 and died in January 1919. Someone has posted a picture of his gravesite in Groton (Colonel Ledyard Cemetery) and his Find A Grave Memorial # is 74221793. I recently transcribed three of his letters which are to be found at:

Thanks, -- Griff

You are welcome!

As you can see from the photo, the marker was down - it would be nice to get it out of the ground or it will become covered with time, but I did not have the tools or man power to do it.

The Morrisons I added photos for are all buried at Sunset Memorial Park not McCall cemetery. Helen, Ida, Bentley, Sheldon and Robert. Hope this helps.

You can submit the memorials. I'll add the photos. Let me know if I can help with any other headstones.

RE: 7 photo fulfillments!!!
Glad to help! The timing of your requests and the weather worked out perfectly! I also added photos to memorials that you created in those same family plots. If you any need more photos, please add the section number and the Hale page number in the plot field. The Hale sections hold true at Mountain Grove and it makes it more likely that i will stop by the cemetery.
