FindAGrave Success: John Jacob Deutsch

FindAGrave volunteer Bill Schraeder graciously photographed the tombstone of Corinne's 4x great-grandparents, John Jacob Deutsch (1821-1863) and Dora Elizabeth (Schutte) Deutsch (1827-1903).  They are buried in the Locust Hill Cemetery in Evansville, Vanderburgh County, Indiana.

John, or Johann, served during the Civil War in Company D, 13th Connecticut Volunteer Infantry.  He was a replacement inductee when the unit was occupying New Orleans.  Previously, John had been drafted into the Confederate Army.

It took a year and a half, but the payoff by this volunteer makes it worth it.
