Last name spelling per Wethersfield historical burying ground map is James; however typos maybe being made here could be Janes. Gravestone photo I took is hard to read. The stone is in poor condition. Also historical burying ground shows different year of death 1896 not 1893. The FAG has Surname as “James” Maybe was changed since? I added Janes as possibly other last names also gravestone seems to clearly show year of death as 1893 however burying ground map shows 1896.
If you zoom in on the headstone it says JANES!  Someone from FAG needs to correct that.

Rank is corporal per NPS so I wonder why says Sergt?


He mustered in a Corporal.  He may later have been promoted to Sgt.

Mrs. Leonard T. James Obituary

The Janes Family: A Genealogy and Brief History By Frederic Janes

Yes that’s his wife mentions him in her Obit

The name is being misspelled so have to match it with other sources available 

I can’t find his Obituary need more help looking if anyone can help in obit searching

I can’t find Sophronia on FindAGrave or burying ground map of Wethersfield Village Cemetery. 

I didn't find any source listing James except FAG.
