MARSHALLTOWN, Iowa (AP) — The Civil War service of Iowa veterans is slowly being recognized with new gravestones.
The Marshalltown Times-Republican reports (http://bit.ly/15p8F5d ) that several Marshall County residents spent Friday morning installing a gravestone for William O. Woodard.
Marshalltown historian Jay McCann was there to assist and to see some of the fruits of his efforts. McCann has been researching old records to make sure all of Marshall County's Civil War veterans are recognized.
Cemetery manager Danielle Plaehn helped search ancient records for details of Woodard's grave.
The Veterans Administration provided a grave marker free of charge after McCann shared his research.
Woodard served in Company D of the 5th Iowa Infantry. He was wounded at the battle of Iuka, Miss., and he lived in pain for several months before dying Jan. 25, 1863.
