Civil War Soldier
This monument is in Prairie View Cemetery NW of Gilman. It is granite - the soldier is about 4 feet in height. It is in good condition - but there is a crack in the left leg that has been repaired. It appears that at one time it may have been a full size soldier but it was damaged with the lower portion of the legs taken off. The inscription indicates that the monument was dedicated by CW soldier Thomas Mooney (1841-1917) who was born in Ireland and came to America at age 16. This is not part of his tombstone but is near where he is buried. See the excerpt from "The Gilman History" book below which refers to Mr. Mooney. The location is about mile NW of town on a gravel road. Take Center or 330th west - then north on Yates Avenue to the cemetery. Photo taken 6/23/14.
