Abraham Kepperley
I'll contact the church tomorrow and see if their records indicate that he is actually buried there, since they have very good cemetery records. I'll let you know what I find out from the church after I contact them.

Abraham Kepperley Memorial #105316765, who you have listed as being buried in the Mount Gilead United Methodist Church Cemetery in Shermans Dale, Perry County, Pennsylvania is really buried in the Bellevue Presbyterian Cemetery in Gap, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, Memorial #77504226. His tombstone says that he was born on September 5, 1841 and died on October 31, 1911 at the age of 70 years, 1 month and 26 days. There is a picture of it with a Civil War Flag Holder next to it on his Memorial.
I'm writing a book about Civil War Veterans who lived in and/or were buried in Salisbury Township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, and he is one of the veterans, who is included in my book. I started researching for this book by going to the Lancaster County Veterans Affairs Office and Copying all of their Veterans Burial Cards for veterans that were buried in all of the cemeteries in Salisbury Township, which includes this cemetery, and they had one for him.

Krewson family
I'd appreciate any evidence that links John Henry to his parents, as I'm not convinced that John Krewson and Sarah Ann Barnes are his parents.
