This is a post I placed on a discussion board at genelogy.com. Haven't had a reply.

Seeking information on a William Cone, private,(1818 - Feb. 15, 1864). Enlisted Aug. 21, . Listed in the national cemetary register as dying Feb. 15, 1864 in Washington, D.C. 1st Maine Heavy Artillery Regiment. Roster from the Nat. Park Service site lists him as a member of the 1st Maine HA regiment. However, headstone at Arlington National Cemetary has NY instead of Maine on it. Confusing. He's noted in the regiments roster. Headstone next to his has ME on it but during my visit failed to note that persons name. Would like to clarify this and gain more family information regarding him.

Was he born in New York?

A friend of mine in Arlington has his birth state of Pennsylvania on his marker even though he lived his last 15 years in Virginia...

Thanks JD and Hank for your replies. One of my problems with this situation is that I'm unable to obtain any of his birth/history data through my sources. My suspicion is that he was indeed born in NY being that I have a large NY/Connecticut Cone limb of my family tree. Still a quandry but this is the sort of mystery I enjoy attempting to solve. Thanks again for your help and let me know if I can ever be of assistance.

Regards,


Doc C

The 1850 and 1860 census record that he was born in Maine.
