JEFF BEARDSLEY REMEMBERED AT GETTYSBURY NATL CEMETERY
I was able to pull a few weeds and clean up the edges of the headstone and sit among the beautiful trees and ponder the impact of the loss of Jeff and all those other boys in that terrible war. The trees surrounding that section of the cemetery are beautiful, stately, and provide a beautiful resting place for one to spend eternity.
If any of you go to Gettysburg, Jeff is easy to find. You can walk to his gravesite from the entrance from the main road around the cemetery, he is in section I position # 7. Have a visit if you're there.
If you walk in this gate and head forward then off to the left you should find section I. The directions we obtained at the Visitor Center for the Battlefield and area were terrible...took us way around where we didn't need to be. However, the visit to the spot of Lincoln's Gettysburg Address was moving. As were the monuments to the 10th Mass Regiment in which my ggggrandfather served, and the 1st Ohio Light Cavalry in which another ancestor served. The cemetery is really a must-see part of the Gettysburg experience.
