Thank you Joan for responding. I looked into this and both markers are for the same soldier, Pvt. Shipley W. Lester born 1842/3 IL died 27 feb 1869, son of Shipley W. Lester born VA died est 1846 and Amelia E. Steele 1811/2 died aft 1860. She was the widow of Drury Stith Feild, Shipley W. Lester, and was divorced in Iowa from John Lloyd Griggs. The Federal marker was put up years later. Take Care
