Note: Email from Ken Tinkham [kent@localaccess.com] Sun 8/31/2003 2:10 AM 

re: Greenwood Cemetry, Rutland Tnp.,   George Stearns was the son, [not husband] of Catherine Purchase Stearns.  Catherine's husband was Martin Stearns. Martin Stearns, age 33 of Volga City, Iowa, native of England, enlisted in Co. D, 21st Iowa Inf. Regt., 12 Aug 1862. He was wounded 22 May 1863 at Vicksburg, Missippippi by a musket ball that struck his belt buckle, forcing a piece of metal into his abdominal cavity, piecing his intestine. He was discharged from service for wounds, 23 June 1863, at Memphis, Tennessee. The wound never healed, and Martin died, 10 December 1867.  [probably buried in or near Volga City, Clayton County]
