Thanks @Phil Gast for the link to your website. An intriguing story.

Great thread and congratulations to the congregation for restoring the young man’s honor for serving his country and his supreme sacrifice
It is only right for him to receive the acclimation and honors he deserved
Regards
David

Interesting story. It is unusual (and sad) that for this young man who was so dedicated to this church that his "final resting place was incorporated within the current building during construction in 1906 ". And to boot they forgot where he was buried after knocking down his grave stone to fit in the crawl-space.
