Tombstone Tuesday - Civil War Vet John Matson

JNO. MATSON
CO. C
79TH OHIO INF.

John Matson was born around 1841 in Clinton County, Ohio and died on March 5, 1896 in Mercer County, Ohio. I posted earlier on his Civil War service and how the gravestone was provided by the US government. John was the brother of my great-great-grandmother Mary Ann Matson Creeden and is buried in the Old Buck cemetery in Hopewell Township, Mercer County, Ohio. He is buried next to Mary's son James Creeden. The photo was posted on FindAGrave and is reposted here with permission.
