Alexander Barclay was buried in the Corinthians Cemetery in Farmington, Dakota County, Minnesota.
Corinthian Cemetery shares the area with another cemetery St. Michael’s Catholic Cemetery.
Alexander’s tombstone is under my maintenance at Find A Grave after the original poster kindly transferred it to me.
Here I am with the tombstone of my great great uncle Alexander Barclay. You can see the storm clouds forming in the background and I look very cold. We could not dally because the sky opened up.
I am amazed at the size of the monument for Alexander but dismayed that there was no flag or indication of Alexander’s service in the Civil War. Something I will have to attend to. Any help would be appreciated just leave a comment.
Alexander died 9 December 1905 but he was buried 17 December 1905. Something must have happened regarding the burial of Alexander’s body that required an affidavit to be prepared and signed by the heirs protesting the removal of Alexander’s body from Farmington? There were no other documents in the probate packet but there might be documents in the court clerk books at the courthouse? Yes, we have a mystery.
