I have discovered a tombstone in Simpson Chapel Cemetery, just north of Bloomington Indiana. The headstone is engraved with the name Young J Morinson, Co G 4th Indiana Reg, Mexican War.

I've searched the web site based on Oran Perry's book and find no Morinson listed, although company G is indeed made up of volunteers from Monroe County. Searches of US census records do not turn up anything on a Young Morinson either. I'm curious if anyone has any information on him. Also, how complete is the Perry book?

Is there any site cataloging grave sites of Mexican War veterans? I have a photo I can provide.
