John Stein was born on August 24, 1842. Towards the end of the Civil War, he joined the army and was placed in the 204th Pennsylvania Regiment, Company G.
Stein’s regiment was formed in late August, 1864 at Camp Reynolds. Following its founding, the regiment was tasked with securing Washington D.C. Later, on September 28, 1864, the regiment was sent to Manassas Gap Railroad to guard the construction of trains. While doing this, the regiment was attacked on Obtober 8 and was forced to retreat, but the soldiers were succesful in protecting the trains and the supplies. The regiment was later stationed near Bull Run in 1865 where it went on multiple expeditions to the battle scene in order to bury the dead. The regiment was then sent to Pittsburgh where it was mustered out on June 30, 1865.
Following the war, he married Mary C. Stein. He died on December 10, 1915. This gravesite is in section B.
