Remarks: Soldier buried in an old cemetery on Third Street (see article from 1903 below). Coordinates for cemetery are approximate as it has been described as a "small unfenced tumbledown place" which was established before the town had barely started. We believe there is no marker as the grave was described in 1922 as being marked with "headboard, which is rotten and fallen down". For more information on the old cemeteries on Douglas Island see Report of the Survey and Inventory of the HISTORIC CEMETERIES in DOUGLAS ALASKA which was completed in 1995.
