David Jones, a loyal soldier

A photo I posted last June is worth a repost on this Memorial Day weekend.

Last June, on my first visit to Cheshire Cemetery in Delaware County, Ohio, I photographed the marker for David Jones (b. 1836, d. 1864) a Union soldier who died at Camp Chase in the summer of 1864.
