Remarks: The Bennington veterans database indicates that John M. Atwood is buried at Old First Cemetery, but no location is indicated. His wife, Julia, and son, Albert P., are buried in plot M9 at Old First Cemetery. The cemetery burial records do not list this soldier in this plot. Son, Albert P., served in Company A, 14th Vermont Infantry. A photo of his grave in the Atwood family plot at Old First Cemetery appears on this website. Further investigation has revealed that James M. Atwood was last known to be a prisoner at Windsor Prison, Windsor, VT. He was convicted of shooting a man in the arm on May 31, 1878.
