Note: National Archives have his pension number, but can
not locate the file. They have referred me to other locations, have not
found. The State of Kansas can not find his death cert. and Republic
County Courthouse burned down. He is buried in Pleasant Ridge Cem., Norway,
KS with his wife Catherine and his children, His name is not on stone, but
his civil war marker is there. I found his death date thru the funeral home
in Belleville, KS.
Republic County has a lot of Civil War Veterans.
Just wanted to add my two cents.
Thanks, Iris Lee
