Kittson profiles and photos from the past and present

I was recently asked for some help by a fellow who is writing a book about the 1st Dakota Cavalry. He was trying to obtain some photos of the grave stone of Pvt William R. Goodfellow who was a volunteer in a unit that served on the Dakota frontier 1862 - 1865. The grave was reported to be in the Pembina Cemetery, west of the town of Pembina. After the war Goodfellow settled at Fort Pembina with his family. He died in 1886 at the age of 49.
The above photos shows the original headstone and it confirmed he was with Company B of the 1st Battalion of Dakota Cavalry. I took a number of photos to be forwarded to the writer. A small piece of Civial War history right in our back yard.
