I apologize if this has already been posted elsewhere. I looked around and couldn't see where it had. The marked grave had been overgrown and lost in the woods and was found by a stroke of luck. He had family buried in a church cemetery 10 miles away. He was disinterred and reburied,with honors,with his family. I love stories like these. Sad to know that other veterans' graves have been lost in a like manner,never to be found.
