Johnstown Tribune, 19 May 1908:

WHERE SLEEP THE BRAVE SOLDIER DEAD

The Tribune's Annual Honor Roll, to Which Many
Names Have Been Added Since Last Memorial Day

      In accordance with the Tribune's custom, it here presents its yearly roster of the honored soldier dead whose graves in the cemeteries indicated will be visited by comrades of the Grand Army of the Republic on Memorial Day and marked with flags and decked with flowers. First is given a list of soldiers who have died during the past twelve months, with the date of death and place of burial, following it are the cemeteries under the jurisdiction of Emory Fisher Post 30, G. A. R. and then those of outside districts.
      During the past twelve months forty-one Civil War veterans and two Spanish-American War veterans have died in Johnstown and other places in Cambria County, together with several veterans in Conemaugh, Jenner, and Paint townships, in Somerset County. The two Spanish-American War veterans were John Wesley Clinger, who was a private in Company H., Fifth Pennsylvania Volunteers and Capt. C. H. Hayden who was in the foreign service.

Looks After 900 Graves.

      Of the number of veterans who passed away in Johnstown since last Memorial Day, almost half of them repose in Grand-View Cemetery, where their graves will be marked by details from Emory Fisher Post 30, G. A. R., which organization will also have charge of decorating the five new soldiers' graves in Sandyvale Cemetery. In these two cemeteries alone there are in the neighborhood of 525 soldiers, including a few veterans of the War of 1812, some Mexican War veterans and some Spanish-American War veterans. The great majority were Civil War veterans. Besides these two cemeteries, Emory Fisher Post will have charge of decorating the graves in other cemeteries in Johnstown and vacinity and some in Somerset and Indiana counties, making a total of about 900 soldiers dead. A Revolutionary soldier is buried in the old Union Cemetery at the foot of Market Street.
      John Butler, James Glass, and Watson Stewart, veterans of the Civil War, perished in the Great Flood of 1889 and no record has ever been made of the recovery of their remains. It is thought they repose in the Unknown Plot in Grand-View Cemetery.

Johnstown Tribune, 29 May 1908:

DECORATE SOLDIERS GRAVES

Flags will Flutter Over Resting Places of Veterans of the Civil
War---Members of Emory Fisher Post Who Have
Charge of the Work

      Emory Fisher Post 30, Grand Army of the Republic, will this Memorial Day decorate with flags between 800 and 900 graves of soldiers in the various cemeteries of Johnstown and vicinity, including some in Indiana County and several in Jenner and Conemaugh townships, Somerset County. The flags arrived here several days ago. The first lot was this afternoon taken to Sandyvale Cemetery by the following sub-committees -- Messrs. David R. Bryan, Frank H. Singer, Gordon Spare, John G. Bricker, A. N. Hart, William F. Horner, James M. Duncan, and A. E. Wakefield, representatives of Emory Fisher Post. They were assisted by the following members of Speer Orr Camp: Messrs. John W. Tittle, Lewis Moses, William Beuler, Robert Herdman, John Herdman, and Lewis Bowers. The flags this year are waterproof and are attached to a white enamel staff.
      The graves in other cemeteries will be decorated to-morrow forenoon by the following committees: Grand-View Cemetery -- Messrs. John W. Price, John D. Reese, John H. Hassinger, and Michael Fetzer, with George G. Palmer and J. Reno Watkins, members of Speer Orr Camp.
      Headrick's Cemetery -- Messrs. Thomas Mitchell, Michael Barkhymer, Michael Gindlesperger, David D. Goughnour, Isaac Goughnour, Samuel Smith, Jacob C. Horner, David Coulter, John Murphy, Jacob Noon, John Goddard, Patrick O'Neal, and Cornelius Hunt.
      St. John's and St. Joseph's at Geistown -- Messrs. Charles C. Headrick and John H. Kauffman, of Post 30 and John W. Miller and Howard Prough, of Speer Orr Camp.
      Lower Yoder, Decker's, Laurel Hill, and Wise Cemeteries -- Messrs. Peter Sarlouis, C. Willett, George Boyer, Frederick Boyer, John C. Lardin, and James Smith, with a squad from Speer Orr Camp.
      Scalp Level, Weaver's and Singer's Cemeteries -- Messrs. Hugh McCleester and James G. Warfel.
      Berkley and Sell's and Ream's Cemeteries -- Messrs. Joseph C. Sharp and Jeremiah Barnett.
      Wesley Chapel, Angus and Brown's Cemeteries -- Messrs. James M. Singer and Conrad Custer.
      Pleasant Hill Cemetery, West Taylor Township -- David R. Bryan.

Additional Soldier dead.

      Since the list of the soldier dead was published in these columns ten days ago David W. Peer, a Civil War veteran, passed away in the Seventh Ward and his grave will be among those decorated tomorrow. Interment was made in the Soldiers' Circle, Grand-View Cemetery.
      Other soldiers' graves in Grand-View Cemetery not heretofore mentioned are those of James Barnes, Jacob Coover, and David Howard, who were transferred from Sandyvale Cemetery within the past few years. Isaac Overdorff was also buried in Grand-View Cemetery. His death occurred some years ago and his name has never been mentioned among the soldiers.

      John E. Craig, who fought in Company F. Fifty-fifth Regiment, Pennsylvania Volunteers, died in Morrellville in February, 1908, and his remains were taken to Armagh, Indiana County, for burial.
      The remains of James Kane were some years ago transferred from St. John's Cemetery on Church street Tenth Ward, to St. John's Cemetery at Geistown and the name has not been published since the old cemetery was abandoned.
      A name of a deceased soldier in Lower Yoder Cemetery that has never been mentioned is that of Hugh Garrity, a Civil War Veteran.
