I checked the Cemetery index and James does not appear in Nobles County. I am not sure why he is listed as being buried here in the GAR records. I will change our database to reflect Lakewood Cemetery in Crow Wing County.
We don't have a publishing deadline; we have been working on getting the biographies for about 5 years.
I am not aware of an inventory of the GAR records. All I have seen at the Nobles County Historical are the rosters. I don't remember what years they are from.
I will send you a photo of Samuel Eastman’s gravestone. I will stop by the cemetery today with my digital camera.-----Original Message-----

Subject: Re: [NoblesCountyMN] Re: Eastmans in Nobles CountyPat,Thanks for the information. I was wondering if James was also in the GAR. As far as I know, though, James is buried in Lakewood Cemetery, Crosby/Irondale, Crow Wing County, Minnesota, not Worthington Cemetery. I'll submit biographies of James and Samuel when I compile more information. Please notify me before the publishing deadline for the book. Does anyone have an inventory of the GAR records? Are they all in one place? It seems there should be much more there than the rosters, if the Historical Society holds the records.Thanks,Gerry Eastman
