Cool. There are a bunch of company B guys buried here in my hometown. I'm working with our county historian currently as I discovered Capt. Chauncey Fish of company B had no GAR marker or flag on his grave.

That is a good and noble effort. I have been researching the 9th for quite a while and have put up profiles on Wikitree. Here is Bvt. Maj. C. Fish's page.
