SOLDIER TOMMIE
AS STREET MONUMENT
WAS DISCARDED BY QUARTER
MASTER YEARS AGO.
All Stones Bearing Barnes of De
parted Soldiers Taken from Fort
- Brown Cemetery Last Summer
Were Shipped Away With Bodies.
Considerable comment has been
caused by the letter signed “A Vis
itor” published In yesterday's Her
ald. criticizing the use af a discard
ed tombstone from a soldier's grave
to mark a street intersection. Some
have condemned the practice severe
ly: Many have declared that it ap
pears irreverent and say the stones
would better have been thrown into
the river than used for any other
purpose than that of marking
graves.
The stone which the visitor re
ferred to was set in the street at
13th and Elizabeth some five or sis
years ago by ,ihe city engineer, when
the streets were betng permanently
loc ated, and I was buried out of sight
It was one af a number of heat

.y " '
thirty years, as, at different times,]
the quartermaster's department had;
replaced a number of head stones
with a later type. The stone in
question was evidently one of these
replaced stones. A number of the
street corners in the city are marked
with stones similar to the one at
13th and Elizabeth streets, but no
other, so far, have been found to
bear a name.
N. E. Rendall, who had the cTn
tract for the removal of the bodies
from the National Cemetery at Fort
Brown last summer, informs the
Herald that there is not a stone in
use that came out of the National
Cemetery during the removal of the
bodies. Five car loads of head
stones, bearing the names of the
honored dead, were shipped at the
time of the removal of the bodies.
In fact, every stone bearing the
name of a departed soldier, was
shipped to Alexandria, La., with the
bodies. Only head-stones which
marked the graves of the unknown
dead, were left behind. These be
came the property of Mr. Rendall
to be disposed of as he chooses, bui
none have been used in any way sc
far.
At the time of the removal of the
i bodies from the cemetery last sum
( mer, there were shipped the remainf
dbf about i,&0b identified . soldiers
and about the same number of
bodies of unknown soldiers.
The stone which was uncovered
in the process of excavating tor the
street paving, and which called
forth the letter from ”A Visitor,”
bears the name of Sergt. .las. Col
lins, of Indiana. Its appearance in
the center of the street did have a
gruesome effect, and the placing of
a wreath of flowers over it, while
no doubt done thoughtlessly, was
such as to shock the sensibilities of
j many persons.
