(If there are state digraphs above, this soldier spent some time in a state or national soldiers' home in that state after the war)

Remarks: The National Gravesite Locator lists Benjamin F. Wright, same unit, who died the day after Gilbert, in lot A/4082. But the gravestone, photographed 6/19/2021 is clearly Gilbert. The cemetery was advised.
