Major Jones died several years ago and lies buried on Sec. 16 of Lincoln Twp. He was a stranger and received only such interment as the limited means of the early settlers would allow. Our soldiers have, therefore, decided to reinter his dust with the ceremonies befitting the burial of one of his rank."]

(The Civil War list was compared to the tombstone transcription records and to Service Record World War I & II Wegman-Koele Post #380 , 1948, written and compiled by Claretta Hymans – Service Record, Mrs. Paul Bolks – History, Arthur B. Kooiker – Manager. From this comparison it appears that Luther H. Canfield born Ohio, Apr 1833 should be on this list even though there is no tombstone for him, just a GAR marker nearby other Canfield tombstones. Update: Further research reveals that this Luther Canfield is buried at Leavenworth National Cemetery, Leavenworth County, Kansas.
Also, Mc Dougal should be included since Mrs. Mc Dougal has a Woman's Relief Corps marker at her burial site.)
