CIVIL WAR VETERAN FUNERAL
James H. Powers, Jr.
The Puget Sound Civil War Roundtable, in conjunction with the Missing in America Project and the National Cemetery Administration, is planning a very special and unique event…the burial of a Civil War veteran, James H. Powers, Jr. and his wife of 57 years, Irene Powers.
James passed away in 1921 and Irene in 1928. Since that time, their ashes have languished at a local funeral home. Most recently, James and Loretta Dimond discovered their record and, working with the funeral home, the Veterans Administration and the family, received the release of the cremains and received permission to have them interned at Tahoma National Cemetery.
The event will take place on December 10, 2016 at noon. Please assist PSCWRT in publicizing the funeral. Links to Powers’ obituary, biography and the flyer announcing the funeral accompany this email.
Thank you for playing a role.
