Have you lost Civil War Ancestors in WA State?

I just found several missing Civil War Soldiers from Washington State at the following sites on the Internet:
WA ST Veterans Home at Retsil WA, near Port Orchard in Kitsap Co. had a home and Veteran's cemetery. To access the cemetery records, go to I Dream of Genealogy at:
http://www.idreamof.com/cemetery/wa.html
The Soldier's Home & Colony was at Orting, WA. To access both the records of the Veterans Home in Retsil and the Soldier's Home & Colony records in Orting, go to the Washington Secretary of State- WA History site at:
http://www.secstate.wa.gov/history/search.aspx
(This is a fantastic site to access other databases as well.)
To access the burial records for the Soldier's Home & Colony at Orting go to the Washington Soldier's Home at:
