I added dozens of memorials and photos for all existing headstones to Center Union, but alas no headstone for Jacob H. could be found. There was a pile of old, small headstones around one of the cedar trees, it may be in that pile. But it was far too frigid to try to lift and look at them this weekend.
I added several GAR soldiers and was sucessful in looking up their regts. If you want the names, just ask.

Later tonight you might want to take a look at what I'm adding for his wife and at least one child in Center Union cemetery. You have him as Haines, perhaps because of war documents, but his wife's & son Walter headstones have "Hain".
I'm also adding a Billows pic (GAR)as soon as Dennis B. moves it from the other listing for this same cemetery.
|Beth Quigley O'Brien||RE: Rufus Potter|
Always glad to help preserve history. You & your family have a safe & happy holiday season, too.
|Joan Cavanaugh||RE: George McIntosh|
Always happy to do my part. Merry Christmas to you and your family.
|Amanda Delena||RE: Joseph R. College|
You're welcome! Anytime Joe.
What a generous spirit you have. Thanks for taking the time to make his memorial and the transfer.

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.

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:

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.

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.
