Welcome to week #21 of Taphophile Tragics on this blog! I appreciate everyone’s support for this meme — and I’m going to do my best to keep this up as a weekly meme. 🙂 My list of links appears on a separate page — I’m sorry, but until I bite the bullet and upgrade to the pay version of WordPress (which, right now, I’m debating), this is how the Linky works. I have looked at other linky programs, and none of them seem to work seamlessly with the free version of WordPress.

My eye was caught by this name, first, and then by the dates, which told me he died during the time of the Civil War.Unfortunately, I didn’t find much about Garrick Mallery, although I found his name on a roster for this infantry company, which showed that he mustered in on July 18, 1862
1962, and died in Scottsville, Kentucky on November 13, 1862. So, he didn’t serve very long at all.
There is a Wikipedia article about this unit, if you’d like to read more.
This stone may be found in the Riverside Cemetery in Noblesville, Indiana, where the rest of his family appears to be, as well.
I am following the same rules for this meme that Julie had set up, and have all the information on my page for Taphophile Tragics. Please include some details of the cemetery in which you took your photographs, and link directly to your post, rather than simply to your blog in general. I enjoy hosting, and seeing everyone’s posts! If you have any questions or comments about my hosting (or anything else), please leave a comment or send me an email (Liquidityoftime @ gmail dot com)
