What a find !!!
Thank you for posting this.
Do you know if Richard Medley has a stone at Mt. Zion or not ?
One of the things we on the Sunday School Church History class tour was look
around in the cemeteries for any Civil War stones. I'm not sure we found as
in Mt. Zion.
We did find a soldier in Bethesda UMC, Valley Lee, who died in October 1918
at Camp Meade, MD. I'm 99.9% sure he died of the 1918 flu. I read somewhere
that October 1918 was the deadiest month in U. S. history.
Thanks again for this posting.
