New Marker

A new marker was installed on my great uncle's grave in Jacksonville, Florida this week.

William Burgess Fulford died on Christmas day in 1924 and was buried in the Old Jacksonville City Cemetery but the marker had his name spelled wrong. I don't think he had any children so it is unlikely any relative ever saw the marker over the last 75 years.

The Kirby Smith Camp of the Sons of Confederate Veterans assisted in putting the new marker in place for me. I appreciate their help and interest in marking the graves of veterans who in many cases have been long forgotten.
