Looking for help - St. Clair Cemeteries
Posted by: Jim Gallagher (ID *****8344) Date: July 01, 2012 at 07:17:26

I need some help with St. Clair Cemeteries. I'm looking for

1) John Mills (born in Lancashire England about Nov. 1842 and died in Ashland 16 September 1916). John is my great grandfather.

2) John's wife Sarah (nee Shepherd born 8 Oct 1845 in Lancashire, England and died 9 Nov 1927 in Ashland, Pa).

3) John's brother Arthur Mills (born about 1832 in England and died April 1865.) Arthur served in the Union Army during the Civil War and was either captured and held as a POW or wounded and lost a leg. Arthur's wife was Jane (nee Earnsby born about 1828 in England). Arthur aqnd Jane had at least one son. His name was also John Mills and he was born about 1857 in St. Clair, PA.

4) John Mills' brother William Mills (born about 1836 in Lancashire, Emgland). William also served in the Union Army during the Civil War. He was either wounded and lost a leg or was captured and held as POW. I don't know that William ever married or had children.

I read somewhere that the names of Arthur and William are on a Civil War Memorial located in the Odd Fellows Cemetery in St. Clair, Pa. I do not know if they are also buried there or perhaps some other cemetery in or around St. Clair.

If anyone happens to come across grave sites or information on the locations of grave sites for John, Arthur and/or William Mills and any of their respective family members, I would really like to hear from you.

I suspect that they would be buried in a Protestant or Nonsectarian Cemetery rather than Catholic.
