Subject: [DescendantsJohnLKent] Grave sites of 562 Kents - Civil War

The information below was sent to me by a genealogy colleague and I
found 562 Kent names including wives of veterans at the following

"More than three million records showing where veterans are buried in
VA national cemeteries are now available online at
<>; This innovation will
make it easy for anyone with Internet access to search for the gravesite
location of deceased family members and friends. The Web site will be
update nightly with information from burials the previous day.
"The nationwide grave locator contains more than three million
records of veterans and dependents buried in VA's 120 cemeteries since
the Civil War. The locator also has records of some burials in state
veterans' cemeteries and burials in Arlington National Cemetery
beginning with 1999. State cemetery burial records are from those
cemeteries that use VA's database to order government headstones.
Arlington National Cemetery, operated by the Department of Army, has
used that database since 1999.
"The Web site displays the same information that visitors to
national cemeteries find on kiosks or in written ledgers when locating
gravesites: name, dates of birth and death, period of military service,
branch of service and rank if known, the cemetery's location and phone
number, plus the grave's precise location in the cemetery.
"Some information, such as identification of the next of kin, will
not be shown to the public for privacy reasons. Immediate family
members with a government identification card may ask to see the full
record of a burial when the visit a national cemetery."
