Tombstone Tuesday - John L. Spring

I don't have a photograph of John L. Spring's grave marker.  At the  Clay Co., Indiana Genealogy Society, in Center Point, Indiana, there is a Civil War History Binder that listed the Burial Places of Soldiers, surveyed May 1907.  One item was Hill Cemetery – John L Spring [Brazil].

From family records, John L. Spring was born 12 February 1794.  From various census records, John was born in Massachusetts.
