I am trying to identify this gentleman so I can hopefully post this on Find A Grave website. On the back it is written Capt. Mr. G. ?. Frederick's. Backmark of photo is from Lebanon PA. I HAVE FOUND SOME George Frederick's but nothing saying nothing about being a captain. Thank you Greg

Thank you for the MOLLUS info. Just having a problem finding his record. I think his name may be George Watson Fredericks .

I also see the reference to him being "George WASHINGTON FREDERICK." It would appear that is correct, and he is no relation to the older gentleman from the previously noted findagrave reference...

Philadelphia Inquirer, 4-12-1904.

I suspect this is his grave...

Findagrave: REV. George Washington Frederick
Thanks again , This makes more sense even though George (Watson) Fredericks looked so similar George Washington Fredericks . Its funny how you have a name and think this should be easy and it becomes a challenge . Again I appreciate your help, Greg
