The goal of this project is to ...add Profiles, biographies, Sources, images of military documents.
BUT mostly to locate where they were laid to rest so we can honor the ones that have not been found yet. (among the UNMARKED/Unknown graves of Franktown Cemetery, Colorado)

FOUND! a newspaper article [1]"Respectfully, C.S. Burdsal, First Asst. Surgeon, 3rd Colorado Cavalry, Ft. Lyon

THIS letter tells us all of the Killed in Action and the Wounded who were brought back to Fort Lyon were then laid to rest at Fort Lyon"
HOWEVER, according to the bio on f-a-g "Shortly after its establishment in 1887," Must be 2 Fort Lyon's in Colorado, one at least was there in 1864.......................
YES, here is the original Fort Lyon Post Cemetery, Location: Bent County, Colorado,
Memorials 111 added NOT 1 photo of a headstone...........
