Thank you again for adding to my previously unknown knowledge of this historic event. I am still trying to locate my relatives. Some may have been part of this procession.
Genuinely would love to hear whether or not you're able to track him down, at least further? Depending on where he fell, it may be possible to ascertain whether or not those men were part of the Gettysburg Dead? Poster just said Weaver, Jr's records are at Gettysburg. Knowing where your relative's regiment was the day he was killed may help. There were mass graves although that sounds worse than it was? I know it sounds barabaric, it was just such a shambles post battle, burials had to happen swiftly. It did make it less difficult to discover fallen men though, and get them home.
