Need Help Finding Three Lost Graves
Posted by: E R McCauley (ID *****1424) Date: October 19, 2004 at 16:41:39

I am attempting to locate the graves of three family members.

Elizabeth Jane McCauley b. Jan. 5, 1864 d. Sep. 27, 1875 as a result of an accident. At the time of her death her Mother and other siblings were living in Huntingdon. (Death record from Huntingdon Borough Record of Interments, Huntingdon County Historical Society Archives)

Her Mother Mary C [Glenn] McCauley b. Apr 21, 1826; d Jan 24, 1911 was buried Jan 26, 1911 in Petersburg Cemetery, (Cedar Grove). Huntingdon Co. Pa. There several empty and/or unmarked graves to either side of her.

Mary’s parents, grandparents and other family members of the Glenn and Borland families are buried in the Glenn-Borland (Rock Spring) Cemetery along Rt. 45 just outside of Spruce Creek, Pa.

Elizabeth Jane McCauley's father William C. McCauley was killed during the Civil War, at the battle of Cold Harbor, VA on June 3, 1864 while serving in Pennsylvania E Co.184th Inf Reg. His burial location is also unknown. A fiscal as well as record search of the battle field graves sites and possible cemeteries in Huntingdon and Centre Co. has been to no avail. William and his family were residents of Milesburg. Pa at the time of his three enlistments and death. Three other children from this marriage are buried in Milesburg Cemetery.

I am also looking for the grave of William’s Brother James Harry McCauley b 1825 Philadelphia Pa d.? He is thought to be been living in Huntingdon Co. Pa. at the time of his death, however this has not been confirmed.

Numerous other members and descendents of this McCauley family are buried in the Presbyterian Cemetery in Alexandria, Pa.

Any help on how I might locate Elizabeth Jane, William C or James Harry McCauley’s graves or information on the empty/unmarked graves in the Petersburg Cemetery would be greatly appreciated

Thank You,

Ed McCauley
