David E Craig
RE: William White
I will have to go back and check with the Park Rangers, there was a listing for a White in the 148th. Grave 28 is an unnamed grave with two persons in that location.

RE: Davd Bishlane
Did I tell you he died of Typhus? I would be happy to put you in touch with my relative whom I met on Ancestry. He is also a Beishline and his records are incredible. I am sure he would be thrilled to help you.
I am happy it was helpful, I was impressed that I was the one who found him there. After all of the people who had searched for him, he was said to be in an unmarked grave, and then I found a list of his unit, and it had info on the whole unit, including his grave location.
Email me at, and I will respond with more info on David. Please write Beishline in the subject line, okay?
Great work you are doing!
Best regards,

RE: Daniel Vanata
Oh, it was a pleasure to take the photo. Daniel's wife is a not-to-distant cousin of mine, so they were on my list also. I have several direct ancestors from the 18th PA Cav, and I appreciate all your work to document their service to our country.

RE: John Root
You are very welcome. Many stones in this cemetery are "buried" under grass and/or mud. Others are very old and unreadable. The majority are in good shape. Always glad to honor a Veteran.

John H Hoover
I need to fix something, Carrie Elizabeth Hoover would of been his grand-daughter. She was the daughter of his son Ira Wesley Hoover. And please disregard the headstone. I found a copy of it all ready. Thank you again, Jackie

John H Hoover
Hello. I am researching my family tree and was wondering if your John H Hoover could be one of my great grandfathers. My John Henry Hoover was born April 4, 1844 and lived at 27 Mumma St in Highspire, PA. He passed Aug 2, 1919 in Highspire. This is from his death certificate. His wife was Elizabeth A.Peters. They had 9 children. They also lived on Second Street in Highspire by the 1910 Census. One of their children was my great grandmother Carrie Elizabeth Hoover-Leedy, she was married to Joseph Kerr Leedy. Both are buried in Highspire Cemetery. Also I was told John H Hoover was buried in Highspire Cemetery also. If your John H Hoover is mine, could you get a picture of his grave. Would so appreciate it. Thank you, Jackie

RE: Isaac M. Grandon
Thanks, Tony. I will be happy to have any confirmation (or refutation) that this was his middle name. You may have noticed that his wife's mother's maiden name was McGlumphy or McClumphy. Which leads to the question: were they cousins? I have not seen anything but "M." except for your Find A Grave posting, even on his draft card. Guess I should order his military record, but hate to spend the money, since he is a distant collateral relative.
Thanks for your research.

Isaac M. Grandon
Hello Tony -

I'm curious where the middle name for this man came from. I have not found any sources which show anything but the initial M. If the middle name is correct, it is the same as the maiden name of his wife's mother - were they cousins of some sort?

Thanks, Sally
