My great great uncle, GEORGE E STALLINGS was killed in the Battle of Monocacy and is buried at Mount Olivet Cemetery in an unknown/unmarked grave.

NPS at Monocacy said they could not mark his grave, but I was referred to a local SCV chapter. I am not a member of SCV (since I live in Ohio), and have not yet contacted them. Details of my Uncle's involvment at Monocacy are documented by George H. Watkin's 12th Georgia Light Artillery site, as folllows:

"Stallings George E., Pvt., Enlisted 5/1/62, Augusta, Joined by exchange, Present 6/16/64, Killed Monocacy, MD 7/9/64. 1850 Census list George E. Stallings age 12 living Richmond Co. in the household of Herbert Stallings, an overseer. In same household, Doctor B. and Robert R. Stallings. James S. Blain of the 26th GA tells of seeing Doc. Stallings kneeling next to his brother after the battle at Monocacy. His brother's left leg had been carried away by a shell, and Doc. Was pleading for a doctor. The brother (George) died a short time latter."

If possible, can someone assist me in getting my relative listed in battle (12th GA Light Artillery) or as buried at Mount Olivet. Any assistance is greatly appreciated!

P.S. I have photos from a visit several years ago. They are of the Confederate Monument at Mount Olivet and many gravestones along the back row fence. If you send a note to Email above, I will gladly reply with any photos I have. Thanks.
