 In 2016 we will continue to locate the final resting places of the men who
fought with the 69th Pa "Irish Volunteers" and to place gravestones on
their graves. We will also continue to honor the graves which are marked
already and place the soil or Ireland on those spots. We will be traveling
to Bradford County where Captain Patrick Tinen (Co. D) is buried and to
the cemetery of the "Old Soldiers Home" in Hampton, Va where soldiers
such as Corporal Cyrus O'Daniel (Co. G), Captain Theodore Stratton
(Co. K) and 1st Sgt. Joseph McGarvey (Co.E) rest in peace.
