RE: John Jonas You're welcome. With no specific headstone, and so few of them at all, it's hard to even get the spacing right. It took quite a while to figure out even the general area, although I think I was close.
RE: John Jonas I will be going back out there when the weather is nicer, and will walk a larger area of the plot. Based on the map, I should have covered the area he is buried in, but I have another to look for, and will double-check. I can send a photo of the field if you would like, although waiting until it greens up might be nice.
RE: William Blanchard U.S. Civil War Soldier - Records & Profiles 1861-1865 William Blanchard Tennessee - Resient 09 November 1861 Private Illinois - service Death - 25 December 1908
In the past I have written for Civil War Records/burial records on my descendants - Perhaps if there is a question as to where William Blanchard is actually buried as he did live in Tennessee at the time of his death in 1908. I don't assume that they shipped his body to Illinois or anywhere else. By writing with a request, you would find his actual burial place. Or write the Cemetery in Tennessee, they would also have his burial record. If not, then leave him as unknown.
RE: William Blanchard John: I review the Military documents and they say about 1838. I reviewed the 1900 Federal Census and it states October 1840. I understand that census aren't always correct either - but at least it is documented a an acutal date.Where all others state "about". Your guess is as good as mine. I will keep the Oct. 1840 date on my lineage. I am an ancestor of the Oakman line. Joanne
