Mark Nye, a member of the Jackson County Genealogical Society, spent countless hours researching the genealogical information of these eight Civil War Veterans. 

"Since 1994 Austin Blair Camp No. 7 has had an aggressive graves registration program conducted by Past Camp Commander, Bill Lowe, and has amassed a data base of over 3000 Civil War veterans. His research indicates these veterans lived in Jackson County before, during or after the war, however, a few may have resided in adjoining counties but belonged to a G. A. R. Post within Jackson County. With the collected information on file at this time, the project is able to confirm the grave sites of over 1000 of these veterans."  (Credit to below website.)
