Welcome to our forum ~ please post your questions below.
I am researching the graves of veterans of the American Civil War (1861-1865) in the mainland UK - there are well over 1,000. One was an Algernon Appleton, who served in the 12th Illinois Volunteer Cavalry, and died in Sheffield On October 7, 1917. I'd greatly appreciate any help in finding where he is buried.
Is this your chap.
APPLETON, ALGERNON THOMAS 76
GRO Reference: 1917 D Quarter in SHEFFIELD Volume 09C Page 634
If so I can't see where he is buried in our database or the many S&DFHS disks of C of E Churchyards that I have.
Fingers crossed that others might find him.
Elaine in Ottawa.
I wonder if he was known locally as Thomas.
Do you have the 1911 census information for him?
Answered my own question LOL.
I see he was a retired druggist in 1911 living in Shiregreen. Born I believe in Attercliffe.
His Will states his address was 39 Primrose Ave, Shiregreen. He had at least one son John Thompson Appleton.
His wifes name was Rhoda. I looked for her burial also with no luck.
