I saw this tombstone for W.R. McCave with the Stars and Stripes flying next to it in an old cemetery west of Vanderbilt I am not sure who he was or his story but carved on his tombstone he was born in 1822 and died in 1904. He was also in the 8th Michigan Infantry. I visit several old cemeteries on my travels around Michigan and I see these old tombstones for veterans from long ago. While they may not be buried in a national cemetery with hundreds or thousands of other veterans they deserve to be remembered and honored for their service.
