John Shank 1818-1878
I have not been able to find John or his sons on any census records. You say they were on the 1860 census for Dauphin Co, PA? Also you mentioned a second wife who was 16 years younger. Does that mean that Anna was his 3rd wife? Do you have any marriage records? has his military record and the application for his gravestone but that's all I have found.

I believe that Alexander Fagan and
John B Fagan 113464772 were brothers
When John B returned from the war he married Alexanders widow-Mary Ann and raised her children and had 2 more as per my ancestry research. (Alexander is my 3rd great grandfather) John B was married to a Margaret before the war and they had 3 children however I have not been able to determine what happened to them. In my research, the veterans pension record you will see that Mary Ann
received Alexanders pension and John B was the guardian.

Mr. Brandt,

I spoke with Mr Zimmerman, the Mellinger Mennonite Cemetery caretaker, about adding an American flag to his grave site as Mr. Bowers was a Civil War Veteran.

He had one with a tall stand there at the gravesite within the hour. I thought you would appreciate knowing.

William Irvin
Hello Dennis Brandt,
I was at Stony Point Cemetery today to try & fulfill photo request. My husband & I looked for William Irvin & could not find him. I'm not saying he isn't there, but his tomb is no longer standing. There were a few tombstones leaning against trees along the edge of the woods. We didn't find his among those though either. I am very sorry I am unable to fulfill your request. I will contact Harry from Perry County Society & see who I have to contact to see if I can get a list of who all is buried at Stony Point Cemetery.
My Sincere Regrets,
