Civil War Monument
PRINT THIS INFORMATION
This is a 7 foot marble monument in Pine View Cemetery north of the town of Delaware. The inscriptions are on three sides but are difficult to read except on the south side which is shown below. There are a total of six inscriptions. The inscriptions shown are John Hartman, Company C, 4th Iowa Cavalry who died of wounds June 26, 1864 in Memphis and Freeman Fear, Company K, 21st Iowa Infantry who died of disease July 16, 1863 in Memphis. The cemetery is one mile north of Delaware on Highway 38. The monument design is very similar to the one a few miles away at the Bay Church Cemetery and likely is one of the first ones erected after the war. Thank you to Steve Hanken for notifying me of this monument. Photos taken 8/18/21.
