Charles Triesback gravestone picture Thank you for this picture! He is my great-grand-uncle (brother of great-grandfather), from PA but died in NC, and I had given up hope of ever finding his gravestone.
William Smith Hi Charles, this may be a redundant message, but this soldier is not resting in the Old City Cemetery here in Lynchburg, Virginia. Union officials removed and re-interred all of the Union soldiers shortly after the cessation of hostilities in other cemeteries.
George W. Wert #38514883 Thanks for posting this memorial. He is my wife's 2nd great grand uncle. We have been working on putting together the Wert family and the inscription on this stone appears to support what I have been trying to prove. Any chance that you have seen a transcription of all the writing on the stone? I will also be sending a similar message to the person who posted the photo. Thanks in advance. Rog

Isaac Wittes Hello Mr. McDonald, Just wanted to let you know that my grandfather Isaac Wittes, buried in Mennonite Cemetery, was not killed at Antietam on Sept 17, 1862. That was actually a different Isaac Wittes. The one buried at Mennonite Cemetery in Whitehouse, Ohio, my grandfather, actually died September 12, 1867. You can see how the similar dates and same name got mixed up; the error about him being a Civil War vet was originally made by me and unfortunately has spread far and wide faster than I have been able to correct it. If you look closely at the tombstone picture you can see that the date on it for his death is correct: September 12, 1867. Would you be able to kindly correct the information on the Find A Grave blurb you created? Or turn the memorial management over to me? I have since found much more information on the family since making the original mistake. I want the soldier's info to be matched with him, and my great grandfather's info to be matched with him, but the two of them keep getting mixed up. Kathy Wittes
