One of the most recent cemeteries that I have been documenting through Resurrection Mission, the Langley/Burton cemetery; Cauc., ca.1848, contain numerous graves of Civil War Veterans. All appear to be related.
Another individual, John L. Langley, is also buried within this small family cemetery. What is interesting in regards to his grave, is the date of his death; 1863.
Why is this an interesting date? At the age of 28, John died during the Civil war. John's siblings and cousins, are laid to rest beside him. Each have their personalized Veterans' commemorative grave marker.
Born: 1835 Died:1863
Was John L. Langley a Civil War Vet?
Additional research needs to be done to confirm this possibility.
"...fight; course; kept the faith" Could these be clues to his military service?
One of the goals of Resurrection Mission is to locate our "forgotten" military Veterans. In time, hopefully, we will learn if John was or was not a veteran of the American Civil war. And, if he was, he too must be properly recognized for his commitment and duty to his military service.
I visited your two Internet sites that you posted within your previous comment. You have gathered some interesting stuff.
Keep coming back to my site and see what is new. I update my blog once or twice per week.
Thank you for the material on John L. Langley. I came across the some of the same material that you posted, while I was at Onslow County main library's genealogy room. I noticed the "R" in the offical documents. The "R" is not on the headstone. With the confirmed official material we are a little closer to requesting a Commemorative Veterans' grave marker for John L. Langley. His siblings within this cemetery have theirs; now is the time to get John's marker too.
A list of the Union Men from Onslow is located at this link.
Im looking for any information regarding the Everett brothers. Their names were Aaron, John, Nathaniel, and Daniel. They lived on the plantation of Thomas C. Everett in 1860 and all four would leave and join the Navy. The Everett plantation was in Stump Sound District and John and Nathaniel would be living their in 1890. They both appear on the 1890Special Census. Aaron and John were preachers. Looking for their burials and any information.
