Camp 22, Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War had a brief Memorial Day Ceremony at the GAR plot, Old City Cemetery Sacramento, Calif. It was decided that the stones were in dire need of cleaning, so the following Saturday was spent cleaning the headstones. As I scrubbed away the mold, one revealed the inscription U.S. Marine Corps. What a surprise, a Civil War Marine.
William Mcloed. He passed away 3 Jan 1890. I got that information from the local newspaper.
If anyone has any idea how find out his military record, I sure would appreciate a direction to take in finding a little more about him.
He will not go unnoticed in the future.
