Remarks: There are two grave markers for this soldier at Green Mount Cemetery in two different locations. One is located in plot 471, and the other is in the Soldiers Lot. At this time we have not determined which stone reflects the actual burial and which is a cenotaph.

Webmaster's Note: After the Saint Albans Raid on October 19, 1864, Vermont raised two companies of cavalry to help guard the Canadian border; there were known as Frontier Cavalry, Companies F and M, but technically they were part of the 26th New York Cavalry.
