Regarding Grave of British Soldier. Our correspondent, Stephanie J Briggs, researched the background of the subject of this marker in detail. She determined that, "Colonel Archibald Campbell is not buried there. He is in fact buried (verified) in Westminster Abbey, London, England, having died there after retiring from the British Army as a Major General." This marker has since been removed. A new marker named "The 71st Regiment of Foot" has since been erected. That marker provides details of the regiment's stay and about the unknown British officers who lay at rest in the cemetery.
