      This appears on Vicki Betts's Web site:

      "The plan is now generally adopted in Gen. Grant's army, when
      burying the dead, to place in the grave with the body, a sealed
      bottle, containing a paper, on which is written the name and other
      particulars respecting the dead." Leavenworth (Kans.) "Daily Times,"
      January 8, 1865, p. 2, c. 2

      Has anyone run across this information before?
