I believe memorial #37830164 and #109532337 are the same person, Corporal John I. Mullen. I have submitted a request to link him to #76127152, Matilda P. Knight Mullen, his 2nd wife. Thanks.

RE: John Jacob Stahl photo
You're quite welcome.
The photo gives the stone a bit of an odd yellowish coloration. It's really not that color, it's actually the usual white/gray/black shades typical of that type stone of that age.
Unfortunately the stone faces a direction which allows only late afternoon sunlight to shine across its face and make the inscription significantly more legible. I had taken a couple photos of it earlier in the day when it was still shaded but the results were too poor to upload.

Marcus Geiter. #39972058
Dennis, I just transferred this to you since it is a CW Vet. I am behind since I was in the hospital last fall for Aortic Anneurysm Surgery and it's taken a time to recover. Meanwhile things piled up. (explanation first!)
After I transferred this I came upon this request for the profile:
Find A Grave contributor Debbie Ellsworth has made a suggestion to you regarding your Find A Grave memorial for Marcus Geiter.
Link to memorial:
Link to contributor profile:
He was a member of the Lancaster, PA. Union Fire Company. He was injured while fighting a fire on October 13, 1858 and died the next day..
On October 15, 1858 the Fire company adopted the following Resolution:

Whereas, it has pleased the Great Dispenser of human events with whom are the issuing of life and death, to again visit this company and remove from our midst our late fellow member, Marcus Dorr Holbrook Geiter.
Therefor be it
Resolved. That the announcement of the death of Marcus D.H. Geiter is received by the members of this company with feelings of the deepest sorrow, and that we have, in this bereavement, been deprived of one of our most zealous and active members, strongly endeared to us by the kindnesses that ever marked intercourse with us, and commanding the respect and confidence of all who enjoyed the pleasure of his society.
Resolved. That we Tender here our sincere expressions of condolence, to the family of the deceased, thrusting that the poignancy of their grief will, in some measure, be subdued by the release he received in death from the short though painful sickness through which he passed.

Thank you
Hi Dennis,

Thank you for the information on David Ernest. I have added it to his memorial. Do you have documentation of his mother's maiden name? I would really appreciate a copy of it, if you do.

Thank you again,
Joy (Gantt) Engel

No need to shoot the messenger. I only added the information that was provided by another findagrave member. You should contact the person who provided the military information. Bio information provided by Dennis Brandt

Hi Dennis,
I have a photo of his headstone. If I try to upload a vertical picture the website automatically turns it on it's side, so I'd rather email it to you. Let me know the address where you'd like it sent and I'll forward it.

Wanted to be sure you'd noticed this is now a duplicate of #30967794 (since he's at Arlington, not Soldiers' Home).
