Thanking Mr. Jim Cooper, Wayne Township Trustee in Fayette County, Ohio for his help in obtaining a replacement veteran's flag holder for my collateral line ancestor, Private John Limes of Good Hope, Ohio.
Jim shared a photograph he took of John Limes' gravesite with the GAR flag holder and the new flags. John Limes also has a footstone. He served in the 63rd OVI - Company "E" during the Civil War. His wife, Sarah Ann Cory, was also buried on the same lot. Her name reportedly appears on the same stone below and is no longer visible. She does not have her own separate gravestone. Her parents are buried nearby, James and Rebecca (Sperry) Cory.
Jim is doing a fine job with his work at the Good Hope Cemetery. I appreciate so much all of his efforts on my behalf with caring for my ancestors' gravesites, and for his ensuring that the cemetery grounds are in good condition.
