I will be visiting Dearborn Cemetery in Poway this week to pay my respects and place new flags for James B. Cravath and Charles C. Wattson, if you would like any photos of the resting places of the 'Lone Civil War Sentry's" here in Poway, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like an updated photo of the resting places.
