James Birdseye McPherson Grave in Nebraska

I was recently visiting a Cemetery and saw a tombstone that interested me, so I took a picture and came home to look him up. He is listed as buried elsewhere.

The tombstone reads:

"Civil War General
James B. McPherson
Killed in Action Near
Atlanta, GA in 1864
Reintured (sic) 1907"

The grave is in the Loup Valley Cemetery between Stapleton and Ringgold. It is located in Logan County Nebraska. Some web sites have the cemetery listed in McPherson County. I checked with the county seats and it is actually in Logan County. McPherson county is right next door to Logan and was actually named after James.

I submitted a picture of the grave to a site called Find A Grave if you are interested in looking at it.

I am no relation and have no connection to James. I like the mystery and am looking into this in my spare time. My general interest is who dug him up and why.....

Also at the grave site is a bronze marker with "GAR."

In the near future I intend to go look at the cemetery records and see if I can find and more and will post information here.
