Found this item on ebay. I guess this could be called a random genealogical act of kindness. I hate when things like this end up on ebay. The seller is
The auction # is 352930267 and the auction ends today. It's a funeral card for John Henry Ocker that's published in a book. It says:

Our Brother, John Henry, Son of Jacob and Barbara Ocker, Died April 30th, 1862, of Typhoid Fever, whilst a Volunteer in the defence of his Country's honor. His peace is sealed, His rest is sure, Within that better home, While we weep and linger here, And follow to the tomb." Found in a Frederick, Md. printed book that had an image and obituary of his Mother.

Hope this info can help someone.
