|Ron's Statement and Information|
|The picture is the stone of John W. Dennis|
In 1997 when I went to Vicksburg,
I looked at his record in the Park Visitors Center.
I disputed their information that they had on their
records. Thank goodness I had enough documentation with
me to prove to them that he was from IL not MO.
In a note from them later they stated that they were grateful
for the information, and in the future, they would be replacing
many erroneous stones.

Died May 4, 1864 in the military hospital at Vicksburg, Mississippi.
