A tombstone with an illegible name is next to that of the Cornyn family. However, it has a GAR marker. The name Cornyn was selected here because it is between two stones that have the surname of Cornyn. The date of death is January 7, 1891, so additional research may find a veteran who died on this date. The stone also notes “War of Rebellion, 1861.”
While the surrounding stones have the family name of Cornyn, the name Cornyn does not appear on any regimental records. Given that the veteran is buried within the Cornyn family plot, there could be a strong likelihood that the veteran is related to them.
