Hi, My name is Susan. I have been researching my family history for some time now. Love to make new discoveries. Cemeteries can be full of new findings. I am also happy to help others researching in my area.
RE: Alfred Hornbeck I did call the Springfield Nat. Cemetery today and was told that in a couple of years after 1861 several hundred soilders had been relocated and families also collected some, which still left many unaccounted for buried in the battlefield. Likewise, at the cemetery about half have unknown identities. So I guess we won't ever know for sure. The papers for Alfred though did indicate that he was a Second Liutenant for the Infantry of the Misouri State Guard and probably died in the first major battle on Bloody Hill.
