George Jelley was born on December 10, 1808. When the war started, he joined the army and was placed in the 14th Pennsylvania Regiment, Company G.
The regiment was formed at Camp Curtin towards the end of April 1861. On May 9, the regiment was moved to Lancaster where it stayed until June 3, 1861 when it was moved to Chambersburg. On June 16, 1861, it was moved to Hagerstown and then on the 20th to Sharpsburg. From there it moved to Hedgeville where it went on multiple expeditions. However, the regiment did not actually encounter any combat. Hearing that there were enemies at Bunker Hill, the regiment went to the area on July 15, 1861 but found the Confederates had already left. Following this, the regiment was moved multiple times until it was finally mustered out, having never actually experienced combat as a regiment.
George Jelley married Mary Ann Keffe and together they had a child. George Jelley died on February 11, 1868. This gravestone is in section B.
