My husband is the great-great-grandson of Curtis Markham. Sarah (Anna) Markham Morse McMullen, daughter of Curtis & Sarah, is his great-grandmother. I am somewhat confused, Curtis died on Sept. 11, 1908 at the Western Branch Hospital (National Home for Disabled Volunteer Soldiers) in Topeka, KS. His next of kin is listed as Harriet Langley, daughter living in Joplin, MO. All of this information is in his Civil War Pension file. Did they transport his remains from Topeka, KS for a 637 mile journey to Greenwoods, WI for burial? Also, back in 2000, the Greenwood Cemetery Index only listed his first wife, Sarah Markham as being bured there. Now he is listed as being buried there too. Only his date of birth on the cemetary index page is listed as June 1, 1845, which is wrong. June 1, 1845 was the date Curtis & Sarah were married. His date of birth is February 2, 1822. Where is he actually buried? I would appreciate information explaining some of these inconsistencies.
