Tony,
When I saw that you were devoting a virtual cemetery to the 18th Calvary, it dawned on me that I had come across an Owens from the 18th at Braddock Cemetery; but his name wasn't Robert. I went back there today and took a photo of Huburt Owens' plaque. As I continued searching for other graves, a man asked if I needed help and explained that he once worked there. He went on to tell me that the writings on the original markers at the Civil War Memorial were badly faded when they replaced them. They did their best to interpret the faded words. It dawned on me that the R was probably seen as an H and the O and the E were seen as Us. Also, the date of death matches. I will attach the photo to Robert Owens and you can add this note, if you like.
P.S. I appreciate what you are doing. Keep up the good work.

RE: John McCann
I was glad to be able to read his marker in-person because the published readings I've seen for this cemetery have several errors. Thank you for your Civil War research and posts! One by one they are being remembered.

Thank you for including him, Tony. What a massive and wonderful project you have taken on. I have not found any information on William Sayers in conjunction with his service, do you have access to any for him specifically?

RE: Civil War soldiers
Tony,
My focus center for veterans is berks county which overlaps into Lehigh, Schuylkill, Montour Northumberland and a few other fringes. I don't see too many from the 18th.
But I can suggest some very good resources which have been very helpful in tracking down burials. Hopefully, you have ancestry.com which is where they reside:

Pennsylvania, Veterans Burial Cards, 1777-1999

Headstones Provided for Deceased Union Civil War Veterans, 1879-1903

1890 Veterans Schedules

U.S., Civil War Pension Index: General Index to Pension Files, 1861-1934


Pennsylvania, Church and Town Records, 1708-1985

Good luck
