The Shamokin Soldiers’ Circle – The Cemetery List – Unidentified Grave Sites

Posted By on June 3, 2014

Today’s post is the second of two with updated information on the Soldiers’ Circle at the Shamokin Cemetery, Shamokin, Northumberland County, Pennsylvania. Previous posts on this blog presented photographs of each of the burial sites in the circle, many with readable stones, but some with no stones or partially readable stones.  For access to those previous posts click on ShamokinSoldCircle.  For a description of the circle, see:  G.A.R. Soldiers’ Circle at Shamokin Cemetery.  For a complete map of the circle, see:  The Shamokin Soldiers’ Circle – Mapping the Circle.

An on-line cemetery list was found at usgwarchives.net by contributing researcher Sam Kerstetter of Gratz, from which he extracted information on the soldiers that are supposedly buried in the Soldiers’ Circle.  The list he found had been uploaded on April 2011 by Tracy Eveland, but a date was not given when the list was actually compiled.

The updated information in today’s post adds the names of soldiers whose grave sites have not yet been identified in the circle.  Continued research may reveal the location of the site and stone, some of which can only be partially read.  Any readers of this blog are welcome to contribute information on any of the veterans’ named below by adding a comment to this post or by sending an e-mail.

For each soldier named below, the record begins with the designation “xxx” indicating that at this time there is no specific identified photograph number used in the Project’s cataloging of the cemetery.  This is followed by the soldier’s name, his date of death, his cause of death (where not known, “Blank” is given), his age (in years, month, days), the grave location (“G.A.R. Circle”), and remarks (when made in the cemetery list).  By the death date given it is obvious that some of these veterans were not Civil War soldiers, but served in later wars.  They are included in this list because there are some veterans of later wars buried in the G.A.R. Circle some of whom may have been buried without grave stones.
