What a generous spirit you have. Thanks for taking the time to make his memorial and the transfer.

Eureka!
Well....maybe not. I checked Hall's "Burial Records of Union Servicemen". It says A.J. Smith is buried "Smith Graveyard - Clover Creek". Problem is - both Smith cemeteries lie near Clover Creek (the waterway). If it is referring to the hamlet of Clover Creek, however, then it is the one in N. Woodbury Twp, which is the one you already have him in. (I am waiting for the cemetery fix thread to re-designate that one, as it still reads Williamsburg, but is two counties away). Anyway, for now, I think you can leave Andrew where he is. Maybe put a note in the bio about Hall and Clover Creek.

RE: Andrew Smith
Joe,

I have added the Woodbury Township Smith cemetery, using the Andrew Smith memorial that my contact sent to me. It obviously not the Andrew you are looking for, as the man is really too old to be a Civil War vet; also, both of those Pa. Burial Cards say the grave of the CW Andrew is unmarked. I have one more source to check - will let you know what I find.

It would be helpful if I could identify the CW fellow on the 1860 census, but I cannot pinpoint which Andrew he is, if any.

Here is the Woodbury one:

RE: Andrew Smith
Joe,

I am in contact with my 'cemetery guru' in Blair County and am trying to track down your Andrew Smith. The cemetery you had listed I believed to be the one in North Woodbury and I got it mapped and added the known burials. However, I found out there is indeed another one closer to Williamsburg. I am awaiting GPS info from my contact, at which point I will be adding that cemetery. I think your Andrew belongs in that one, but am trying to get more info. I will keep you posted.

RE: Isaac Baker
Thank you. I"m sorry the photo wasn't the best. As you can tell by the photo, his gravestone is almost completely covered by moss or the like. Most of that graveyard is under tree cover and with the wet spring/summer we had this year, most of the flat stones that get little sunlight look like his. Perhaps I'll get a chance to go back and get a better shot of his gravestone next spring. I was surprised that he didn't have a military gravestone or some indication of his service on this gravestone. My great-grandfather fought with Company F, 47th Indiana Regiment. His memorial is #54203625 if you would like to take a look. Continued good luck with your Civil War research.
