RE: Nathan Conrad Hello Kristina Most likely the Civil War based on his birth and death. If you belong to Ancestry you may be able to locate a military record. I am sorry that that is all that is left of the stone but I tracked it down based on records that someone created years ago. No, I didn't place the flag. As long as the flag holder stays there, a flag should always be placed over his grave. Mike
No, I'm not related to Bethuel. However his son, also named Bethuel, who died in 1926 in Harvey County, Kansas, was my great-grandfather Francis T. Fost's best friend, as near as I can tell. They both joined the Third Maryland Infantry and they moved to Kansas together after the war and they both had Fisher relatives who descended from Warfordsburg lines. So I do feel a little kinship. When I came to Tonoloway I just needed to look up his parents.
Bethuel Covalt Thanks very much for the excellent photo of the stone of Bethel Covalt #22320482 in the cemetery of the Tonoloway Primitive Baptist Church at Needmore, Pa. I was in the cemetery last week and I only found the stone because I knew its shape from your photo. And your photo helped me decipher the name. The stone is currently covered with dark lichens or something like that and is nearly unreadable. --Don Skinner, Overland Park, Ks.
